..new year, new thread.

Happy new year everybody! Christmas may be over, but you needn’t be sad – Forge World has a whole month of free goodies planned to start your 2018. Welcome to Competition Month!

The rules are simple. Each week in January, anyone who spends £50 or more on a Forge World order will be automatically entered into that week’s draw for a free super-heavy kit. This week, you could win a Hierophant Bio-titan. It’d look awesome alongside that Malanthrope or Dimachaeron you’ve been thinking about. If you’ve got a free shipping voucher to use, or some Christmas cash burning a hole in your pocket, you could be in for a pleasant surprise.

With a new competition each week this month, there are plenty of chances to win, so make sure to keep checking back to see what’s on offer. Find out more (and grab some new models for the new year!) over at Forge World.

With the competition one thing I noticed (because I got sent to the US instead of UK store) is this in the Terms and Conditions

4. To enter the prize draw, you must either:
(a) place an order on www.forgeworld.co.uk of at least £50 GBP excluding Virtual Gift Vouchers, Sales Tax and shipping costs (a “Qualifying Online Order”);
or
(b) send an email to competitions@gwplc.com with the subject line ‘Win a Tyranid Hierophant Bio-titan’. The body of the email must include: your full name; your contact telephone number; and your full address.

https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Win-a-Tyranid-Hierophant-Bio-titan


I assume this has to do with local laws in that territory as the others appear to be by purchase only (just like how Canada requires the entrant to answer a simple question if they are drawn from the lot to win)

Yeah that's standard for US based lotteries. Presumably they need to provide free option to enter lottery based on US laws. IIRC used to be due to this that GW didn't simply run these offers there but guess they changed policy on that.

I've had a go at doing a change log for the new HH rulebook, if I've missed something let me know.

First thing they added was everything from the FW rulebook FAQ: https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/fw_site/fw_pdfs/Horus_Heresy/Horus_Heresy_7th_Edition.pdf

EXCEPT:
Grenades
The sniper clarification for veterans wounding on a 2+ if they have a melta
Combi weapons can now fire both the combi bolter and combi flamer/plasma/melta/etc. component as many times as they want, this is the opposite of the above FAQ
Rites of War - they are mentioned but does not go into anywhere near the same detail as the FAQ
Named IC clarifications (Lorgar, Sevatar, Horus, etc.)

Next up is the 40k 7th edition FAQ, I believe this is the latest, let me know if it isn't: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/40K_The_Rules_v1.2_Nov16.pdf

Not included:
The heavy stubber in 30k has no AP, in 40k's FAQ it is AP6.
All other changes to text included, obviously the Q&A is not

Other changes:
The FoCs are the 30k FoCs, no 40k FoCs included. Only one FoC/Allied detachment
The Warlord Tactical Traits table is removed, the other traits are the same
The Allies table is the 30k one, come apoc is replaced by Warmaster/Emperor command, and Agents of Emperor/Warmaster added as additional type over 40k
Eternal and Maelstrom replaced by Age of Darkness mission table (12 vs. 6 of them)
40k deployment maps replaced by 30k deployment maps (3 vs. 6 of them)
All the 30k weapon types and their related special rules in this book, so rad, 30k grav (no 40k grav rules at all), phosphex, etc. are in here
Invisibility replaced by Mind Howl - this is the only power that is changed
Generic demon profiles added for summoning, and changes to what you can summon
All the pictures updated to use UM and DG models

I should point out that 30K has two Grav rules, Graviton and Graviton Pulse. Graviton works the same way as 40K's Grav, so did they remove this special rule all together?

Which weapons in 30k use the 40k grav rules? Not sure I've ever seen them, only those that use the 30k version.

In the special rules section there is only gravition pulse, I can find no mention in this section or in the weapons section for the other type. I should point out that the index of this book is a bit hit and miss, all of the special rules aren't in the index, so a bit of a pain to find.

Not impressed with the bio-titan model. The legs have always been inadequate for supporting the weight of the model. Maybe next week.

Fair warning, the Culln dread has some subtle improvements over the original sculpt, most immediately noticable being the angled shoulder mounts allowing for improved arm poseability.

Clever clever Forgeworld, they know everyone and their mate has a free shipping voucher and now they're throwing in extra incentives in the form of a competition.

I cheated and sent in an email submission for the bio-titan (yay Canadian gambling laws) but I'll definitely be out 50 quid by the end of the month...

Any thoughts on what the other two or three models might be? I'm thinking a knight/warhound of some sort and maybe a Tau vehicle. That's assuming they only do 40K stuff though, I forget that they sell AoS and LotR stuff as well.

I'm just at a loss as to what I should order. Kinda want a Spartan/Storm Eagle/Knight Cerastus.

I just wish they had some/more necro models+upgrades.

Decent model. Not super quality but not bad either. compared to calth one nice it has regular hand for non-fist weapons. Too bad it's way too space wolf centric to work for sons of horus or blood angels so I'll pass at least until I get wolves(though that would be preeeetty long. Priority is legions involved in siege of terra)

I like the pose ... but as others already mentioned last year the fur looks subpar for a resin model ...

You know, I think my issue (and it's solely my issue), is that the Space Woof stuff looks like 3rd Party Knock-off, rather than what we've come to expect from FW.

Said it elsewhere but I hate the fur, it just looks so 3d sculpted. Compare it to the fur that is on kits from 10+ years ago and it looks exactly as Mad Doc says, a 3rd party knock-off.

MEH, mostly because it uses the same overused HQ pose and costs nearly 30 quid (counting in FW shipping prices). I bet one could kitbash a better looking Praetor...

£25 for a figure with the worst fur I've seen in years and a pose that looks like he just run into a plate glass window? Come on guys, this is 2018, not 1988!

Now I can't unsee this

I'm not a fan of that model for the same reasons everyone has stated.

Honestly, there are some kitbashes on the Warhammer Community site of some BaC Terminators and plastic Wolfguard bits, which look far better than this. The only thing I like is the weapons, but that ain't worth £25 + shipping. Maybe it looks better unpainted, but I doubt it will improve that much. Pity :(
