Hi guys,

couldnt see this anywhere else. Just got an email from FW about them being in Baltimore, and this pic was in it.



Any ideas?

:scratchhead:

Lightning symbols and a mass of cables behind the head and something else is behind that head, something with a curve.........perhaps a Librarian?

Ta :biggrin:

That second one kinda looks like a GK/MkIII helmet to me. Not sure about the shoulder guard though.... :scratchhead:

I meant the Mk 1 'Thunder' Armour. Not tempest.... lol
Aah! I thought that may have been what you meant, but didn't want to say anything and look like a complete goober if there was something I'd missed fluff-wise :D

Wasn't MkI open-faced though...? :)

Perhaps the two pictures are FW's take on artificer armor?

Officially it was, but going by Forge Worlds slightly different take on the others too, a faceplated design wouldn't be stretching things too much.


And they could be a take on Arty armour, the second one post here certainly looks like it...

If it is a FW interpretation of MkI armour, I like it. Beats the hell out of a pair of sunglasses..... :grin:


And as for it being artificer armour, good call, hadn't thought of that!

Why would it be thunder armour with the exact same helmet as MkIV?



And the second one is the Black Templars Crusader Helmet.

http://www.bitsandkits.co.uk/black-templar-crusader-helmet-p-18.html

I cannot see Forge World, who go to great lengths to produce models which fit the background and scale for 40K would go and fuck up something as big as granting Thunder Armour Mk1 Pattern Power Armour the go ahead to look exactly like Mark IV and Mark VII Crusader variant Armour.

Neither would the Thunder Armour have the Imperial Eagle on it, as that symbol was not used until after the Heresy (other than for the Emperors Children). Even the Mark II, Mark III, Mark IV and Mark V follow that pattern - they don't have the Twin Headed Eagle on the chest plate.

No offence guys, but fuck me. That was painful to write.
