if they are indeed releasing a plastic Thunderhawk, I may pick one up...unless the price is comparable to FW...then I would just drop the money to get the FW one. Either way, hoping it will only cost a reasonable amount...cant wait for it to come out though.

I'd still get the plastic then, less of a chance of warping or being too heavy to stay upright properly....generally a better deal typically.

That said I'm not sold on this being a Plastic Thunderhawk just yet. Forgeworld stuff has popped up in GW battle reports since the reboot and even some of the pictures, it's only a matter of time before we see them teasing use with them in the Parting Shot.

I'm not saying it's not a Plastic Thunderhawk, I'm just not putting all my hopes into a picture GW is using to cocktease my wallet.

Comparing to the FW, one.. the only differences I can spot are that theres a few less details, and the cannon muzzle is a different design... However.. that's not enough to go on to say this is a plastic Thunderhawk... fingers crossed though.

As far as i can tell, just briefly looking over that pic and ones on forge world's site, that
IMO its not a plastic kit, it's a resin forge world model. the details are just to close to the forge world model for this to be a new kit.

Much as I want a plastic thunderhawk, I'll refer you to this article from last time Apocolypse was launched...

Looks like the same one from that previous WD with some touched up paint. A bit disappointing but good to get this solved.

Not to overtly contradict, but, until the WD is in my hand I'm not calling this solved. But, I guess I'll have to wait for the May WD.
