As far as jump infantry goes they certainly aren't Night Raptors. But then the best jump infantry models should obviously belong to the best jump infantry legion.

As a hibernating Blood Angel player (admittedly 40k and not HH), I think those look like crap. They look more appropriate for pre heresy Emperor's Children to me. Ymmv.


Our local Blood Angel player thinks they look more Death Guard (mainly due to the shoulder pad)


I'm not very familiar with HH DG myself so can't comment. The reason I said EC was because they have oversized shoulderpad wings in previous HH legion releases plus the helmets remind me of screaming speaker noise marines (or raptors to a lesser extent). YMMV.

The earlier BA releases looked pretty good, but this round looks embarrassingly bad. The painting style doesn’t help either. Completely different from earlier HH BA.

The contrast with the HH DAs is huge.

More pads have gone:

Iron Hands Mk IV
Thousand Sons Achean Pads
Salamanders Mk IV
Thousand Sons Mk III
Imperial Fists Mk VI

If you haven't already, get your pads as Forgeworld have confirmed that they won't be restocking the pads when they've gone...


Edit:
Some doors have gone as well

Honestly, these are the ones that normally don't go well with their legions.
From my experience, I've very rarely seen MKIII Sons, MKIV Hands/Sallies/Fists - these legions just look so much better in MKIII/MKIV.

Night Lords mark 3 shoulder pads are gone from the fw sight. That makes sense seeing as how they're one of the two legions featured in the upcoming Thramas Crusade.

I think it's the paintjob. For a lot of the bare-headed models I've felt the same, until I see the unpainted version on the website at which point I realize it was just painted badly.

I honestly think it's a great model. The helmet is neato. It has some very interesting and cool details without feeling too cluttered.

I like the armour a lot but it makes me sad that 40k era Scars lost their fancy gear.

I’m actually liking the model a lot.

Again, they have enough detail to make it interesting but haven’t flooded it with random clutter for the sake of details.

It's weird, Forgeworld used to be one of the most exciting and news-worthy releases from GW, but it's all a bit samey now, with yet more marines, and with much more exciting stuff coming from the main studio.

There used to be the Imperial Armour books and quite a bit of Xenos items coming from Forge World . Also, there's generally no new Solar Auxilia now either (besides that one tank they had a while back).

Now there's no more Imperial Armor (with the upcoming one being in development for a long long time) and the guy who did Solar Auxilia is gone. I think there aren't as many Custodes and Chaos vehicles and beasts or Dreadnaught stuff as previously too but maybe that's just confirmation bias or something. Feels like most of it's been Marine infantry lately.

Under the couch

The thing is, Forgeworld's thing used to be making stuff that the main studio couldn't. With the main studio now able to turn out plastic titans, Forgeworld needed a new direction.


And, quite frankly, I suspect that Heresy marines sell considerably better than most of their previous releases.

There is also a backlog on parts for titans, and no new mechanicus/mechanicum stuff in a while.

The lack of new Mechanicum models is a particular annoyance, because I can't shake the sense that the reason we've not had any more is the main Studio told them to stop so their whackadoodledoo 40K range would have a free run.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

Maybe they will bring back the awesome macrocarid explorator. Don't know why that went away when the ugly karaktos thing is still around.

FW fails so bad. 11:33 and they still can't sort their website nonsense. Maybe that's why they are getting rid of sculpted shoulder pads. Transfers for everyone!

Good that they've brought these out considering the shoulder pads are for the chop. Looks like the word bearers have been chopped and some more doors.
