Default Fw open day

Hi there,

some pictures of the new Knight lancer due out in may sometime and some other goodies from the day.
Having spoken to the designer he has concepts drawn up for another knight variant, shorter and more heavily armored, with bigger guns, mounted more like those on a war hound would be. The new automata is also massive, but just looks mostly liked a scaled up version of those currently available.














and here are some pictures of the dropsite massacre board








good day in all, long queue at the start to get in and then again to buy things but it was good talking to everybody in the design process and book making, i would recommend it to anyone

Looks pretty cool. The shield on the Lancer is interesting. Nice to see the Marine upgrade kits too, mostly because it just gets me excited for the prospect of a Raven Guard kit.

Mixed emotions about the lancer knight, looks great and very happy to see it produced,but at the same time a little sad that they have handed the knights off to FW already, i was convinced they would do more in plastic considering the populatrity of the plastic kit sofar.

On a side note whos credited with the lancers creation? i ask because it looks like it has been produced in very close conjuction with the plastic kit and im kinda wondering how much of FW vehicles stuff is done in CAD and printed because they have said in the past walker kits are difficult and this one is so very similar to the plastic kit.

Big fan of those mechs. Little sad to not see any wolf bits in here, but not surprised.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.
