Oldschool Minis: Plassenburg Museum Visit Part 17

View Comments
Hey all, last set of pics from the museum here and I saved the biggest battle for last. This is apparently one of the if not the biggest historical minis dioramas in the world. It is in fact quite massive easily being something like 20x20. There are literally tens of thousands of minis in this diorama. Unfortunately the lighting wasn't working on the display so the camera flash was the lighting for all of these. Still you can get a good idea of the scope of this diorama. Comments welcome!

Imperial Guard: Hydra Flak Tank

View Comments
Hey all, managed to get the Hydra finished. I still need need to go back and finish the camo scheme on the turret but I decided to take a break from that as it was getting a bit tedious. This one was definitely a blast to work on and it's been fun using it in games so far. Who knows, I might have to get two more at some point for some serious anti-air :) Comments welcome!

Forgeworld: Newsletter 214

View Comments
Hey all, the new FW newsletter is out and there are some more cool things coming out soon:

"Hello There,
This newsletter we have some much-sought after weapons for our Warhound titans, re-enforcements for the treacherous renegades of Vraks, as well as a few announcements to make. We`d also like to thank everybody that came out to see us at Games Day Canada, which was a fantastic show as ever.

ThanksAlan Bligh

Imperial Armour Volume Seven Coming Soon!Our big news is that Imperial Armour Volume Seven, the Siege of Vraks Part 3, the final part of our epic campaign series is now finished and off to the printers! Look out for a Newsletter soon with a full preview and date of release as the story of the climatic conclusion to the Vraks conflict is finally revealed.

Mars Warhound Titan WeaponsNew for the Warhound Titan are two much requested weapons, a Mars Pattern Turbo Laser and a Mars Pattern Inferno Cannon. Designed by Will Hayes, these weapons add Titan-killing firepower to the Warhound and now give the Mars Pattern Warhound all the options found on their Lucius Pattern brethren. Their armoured cowling matches the Mars Pattern’s ancient styling and the weapon arms can be used as right or left arms for the titan.

The Mars Pattern Turbo Laser and Mars Pattern Inferno Cannon are available now for immediate release.

Renegade Heavy Stubber TeamThe Renegade Heavy Stubber Team, designed by Mark Bedford, is a fantastically characterful addition to our Chaos Militia range. The two man team which you can see Here, have been posed in a mobile, aggressive style, well suited to guerrilla warfare and urban combat with their heavy stubber braced above them for firing.

The Renegade Heavy Stubber Team is available now available for immediate release.

Upcoming EventsForge World will be attending Games Day Chicago on the 25th of July. If you would like to place a reservation order for this show, your reservation should reach us by the 29th of June.

Forge World will be attending Games Day Germany on the 16th of August. If you would like to place a reservation order for this show, your reservation should reach us by the 10th of August."


The biggest thing here are the new weapon options for the Mars Pattern Warhounds, you can finally have all the options for this version of the Warhound, and being able to now order titan parts separately, you can really get the titan loadout that you want.

Game Preserve: Fantasy Grand Tournament 2009 Update

0 comments
Hey guys, since things are getting pretty busy with the tournament and it's looking to be pretty big, I've decided to go ahead and create a separate blog for it so that the information is more easily accessible, instead of digging through pages of blog posts.

The official tournament site is: http://gamepreserveindygt.blogspot.com/

Check there for all news and information regarding the tournament. Hope to see you there!

Blood Angels: Melta Dreadnaught

6 comments
Hey all, just a quick update for the Blood Angels here. I managed to get my Assault on Black Reach dread finished over the weekend. Just a quick simple paintjob on this one, no real detailing. I just don't see myself using this loadout very much so he'll be essentially relegated to Apocalypse games. I'll eventually go back and do some touching up and detailing as time permits. Comments welcome!

News: IG 1.5 Wave tanks available for Preorder!

0 comments
Hey all, up on GW's UK site are a few new preorders - namely the 1.5 wave IG stuff. You have the new all plastic Hellhound and Leman Russ Demolisher boxes, each of which allows you to make one of 3 variants and contains all the bits necessary for all types of weapon options. The Hellhound kit is certainly looking cool, especially the beefier turret (might come in handy on some Chimera conversions) and the new side panels are looking good too. The LRD is also pretty sweet - the new lower profile and elongated turret looks good. The plasma cannon for the Executioner variant doesn't look quite as good as the FW version and the Punisher cannon is a bit meh. Still, having all 3 in one kit is definitely a plus. What do you guys think?

Definitely nice to see the next wave of IG stuff coming out. Keep in mind the entire IG release is supposed to spread out over 18 months so there is still plenty to come including an artillery box set that supposedly lets you make the Basilisk, Medusa, Bombard, and possibly even the Griffon. That's a lot in one box if it's true! Also, anyone notice what looks like giant fortresses landing in the background art of these boxes? Possibly a future Planetstrike release...
