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.

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.

At last years gamesday this question was put to a couple of the design team and the answer was a clear no, I'm sure it was mentioned on here.
Plus it does look exactly like the FW one.

It's hardly definitive but I doubt we'll see a plastic thunderhawk just yet

Were on a design team and ask a question about a specific product before its release date, I would say 'no' as well.

Well for looking exactly the same the top cannon doesn't seem to be on the one they sell. Proportions at a glance also seem slightly off somehow. Not that I could see any real point in a plastic kit. Would be cheaper, but the game really never seemed designed to handle something like that being playable real well. Mechwarrior had a similar issue when they made a Dropship for that. It had stats. Just didn't really fit in otherwise.

If it is a plastic Thawk, I'll buy at least 2 even if they are really weak in game for their cost as they stand

I think its time for GW to do another bunch of apocalypse related stuff, maybe a rerelease/ rules clarification for 6th ed. Lets be honest we never thought we'd see a plastic baneblade or ever see a stompa

I have held off buying a flyer so far, partly because there's no slot for them in the SW codex, partly because they just seem too damn expensive. However, if there's a plastic thunderhawk, I will be jumping on that like fleas on a stray dog.

That picture could simply mean that the battle report next month is just an all flyer affair though. Which is the most likely option I think.
