Default FW Open Day 2017

Today is Forge World Open Day, and I will update as stuff appears online, either from GW's own sites or FB, etc. Feel free to add to it if any of you see something I missed.


Apparently a SW Varangir. A fucking dreadful mini I think. More Scibor than FW. Looks very badly proportioned.

That's a lot of plasma.

The Tau Tiger Shark has been reworked and mold remade.






Some Middle-Earth stuff coming out as well. Orc upgrades.

Just a quick scan from top to bottom:

Varangir looks weird, though the photo's angle might not be helping.

The two Blood bowl pics - Okay, I'm pretty sure it's an elf because pointy ears, but High, Dark and Wood Elf teams all look much different. Probably 'normal' Elf, but Androgynous Elf is the best I can make of it.

Troll pic: ... meh. Need different perspective on it. Wrists/hands look kinda weird on the arms.

Custodes: Joy, yet more good-looking Custodes we won't get to use in 40K despite Guilliman having turned them loose.

Vehicle doors: Look good, but they're only vehicle doors so...

Sicaran turret: Looks good, but I'm starting to wonder just how many variants of the thing they're aiming for.

Khornate dragon: Daaaaaaamn. Now that's a dragon.

Tau Tiger Shark: I'm not really a fan of the overall Tau look, so I'd normally just skip over it, but that thing looks like it lost a fight with a steam iron. I don't think the guns used to be that encased. I remember the bottom being the more interesting side to look at to begin with, and that's not a good thing - even for a flyer.

Middle-earth orc bits: Looks like they'll add a bit of diversity in larger Orc blobs.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

I think we'll see 40k rules for all the 30k Custodes stuff soon enough, especially as they are now a part of the 40k setting once again.

For sure. I don't think there was a loyalist who didn't weep with joy when they saw that the Custodes were being given models. It would be madness not to give them 40k rules (especially since this would be profitable for GW)

It turns out that Chaos has their own band...
