Warhammer Forge



Exciting news! the new Forge World line of Warhammer Fantasy products is currently being unveiled at Games Day UK today. Aptly titled Warhammer Forge, they are shooting for the stars with alot of new models and a new book in the vein of the successful "Imperial Armor" series.The theme of the first book is a chaos variant..with alot cool looking Nurgly models and confirmation that Warhammer Forge is handling the new Chaos Dwarfs. However here at Plastic Legions, I am interest in Empire. we've got new Characters State Troop upgrade sprues ( man those kneeling handgunners are a must...of course I already have 30 built...sigh) and a Marienburg Landship..while things like the Landship and this Demi griffon with have experimental only rules (if previous FW releases are the measure) but that doesnt mean they don't make awesome (abet expensive) proxies for your armys...I can see that landship running with the Steam Tank rules No, problem ,etc. When it comes to Empire, and my wallet I just have to bite my lip and think of the words of Al Pacino, "just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!" my poor lizard. Photo are from user Dapool over at Dakka Dakka, numerous threads crossposted at Warseer, links at TGN..all the usual WFB peeps check it out!

Joy. More Empire Hand Gunners. I hope they don't make a hellblaster model. ;) It is great to see Forgeworld get on the WHFB tip. The new Chaos Dwarf stuff the did is sharp!

I'm all handgunnered out, I would do some xbows thou and I'll probably get that halberdier upgrade kit
That Landship would make cool second Steam Tank..you could even mount a Helblaster on the forecastle!
Bwhahahahha.

Sadly I was there when the staff member who scuplted those halberdier/handgunners/crossbowmen said "there are NO plans for release" of those particular models. Bad luck boys....

(oh and the bit in quotes is word for word what he said).
