Default New Volkite Chargers/30k special weapons



So they'll fit onto Betrayal at Calth models.

Interesting to note that they're phasing out the existing ones, not adding ones with sculpted hands; if you play with resin 30k models, then you'll have to start cutting the hands off your models. That Forge World is gearing up for the BaC-style Marines makes me think it's pretty much a done deal that GW will be doing the Heresy at large with follow-up releases to BaC expanding it into a full game.

Nice.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Great for making up Betrayal at Calth as a 20-man Legion Tactical Squad and a 10-man Tactical Support Squad. Or, in my case, Terror Squads.

Just so long as you bought two, anyway. If/when they do the same thing with mKII armour I'll be on it....maybe. It's not like I know anyone who plays 30k aside from on here despite being in a marine dominated meta.

What, you mean I can't take my Skyhammer Formation? Lame.

Well of course I did, it's an absolute steal. They're practically giving them away!

Just buy upgrade packs, it replaces most of the bits anyway

Convert people, £190 for a 2500pt army should get people interested especially if you sell it as 'more balanced 30k'.

that last bit was me making fun of a couple of the local SM players. I gave up on vanilla SM pretty much immediately upon reading the recent Codex and Formations, actually sold a bunch of my SM models when it came out. I'll stick with my BA in 40k for power armour.

The BaC stuff is a great deal but it's still not stuff I want, and buying things with the sole interest of buying more things to make them what I want doesn't appeal to me. May as well buy fakecast, fix casting issues (if there even are any), and save money while getting the things I think look cool...not that I'm advocating infringement on GW's IP of course.

I wait with bated breath to see if 30k is truly released as a GW line.

What are you, some kind of masochist?

As I mentioned in the OP, with Forge World abandoning their existing customers to the darkness by changing their special weapons from the old style of having to cut the grips and triggers off to the new GW style of having the right hand attached to the gun (cut the hands off your heinously expensive resin marines, you're Forge World's dirty little whore and you like it!), I'm pretty sure GW will continue the 30k range. That, or Forge World just happen to be changing to the same style as Betrayal at Calth now, as a total coincidence (because remember they're totally unrelated companies).

Pardon my ignorance but I thought the forgeworld Heresy bits worked fine with regular GW marine parts. What's new with the GW Heresy set?

(BTW mkII and mkIII are the coolest, followed closely by the mkV ;) )

Old Space Marines had the right hand connected to the right arm as one piece, with the weapon as a separate piece; you had to clip the trigger and handle off the Bolter then stick it into the right fist of the Marine. Now, the right arm stops at the wrist, and the hand is attached to the weapon instead. Forge World armour is still done in the old way, with the right hand attached to the arm; the new special weapons will therefore require you to take a saw or modelling knife to the wrist joint, or carve the hand off the weapon.

Ok thanks for clearing it up!

Looking forward to what they are gonna do with plastic heresy. Dont really have the money to cough up for the set (and it doesnt help that it is an armor pattern I'm not a huge fan).
