Forge World Open Day 2011

Last minute problems meant that my plans to attend the Forge World Open Day fell apart, therefore like the rest of the gaming world I am reliant on other sites for news and pictures.

The Forge World Heavy Transport mentioned in a Forge World newsletter was not the Capitol Imperialis or Leviathan that was hoped for, but is basically an armoured Gorgon, a mobile pillbox.

Alas Warseer, a great source for pictures is currently “unsafe” and as a result is not available. Some of the Warseer pictures managed to get out though and you can see more on this site (in German).

Another release on show was this Forge World kit for the Dark Eldar.

I’ve always thought the Dark Eldar vehicles should have more sails.

Really nice.

Also on show were some nice new models from Warhammer Forge. Much of those we have already seen, but there was a big “bull” steed or monster, large Skaven rat monster, new Chaos Dwarfs and a Chaos Siege Giant.

GamesDay 2010 Thoughts


So the big news tomorrow at the UK GamesDay will be Warhammer Forge.

Warhammer Forge unveil a veritable horde of work-in-progress resin kits as well as early layout copies of the first in a series of lavish expansion books for the very first time at Games Day UK. You’ll be able to see the staggering range of resin models that have been created over the past year.

In the way that Forge World have transformed how many people play Warhammer 40K, I suspect Games Workshop hopes that Warhammer Forge will do the same.

In the past there have been some Forge World models for Warhammer Fantasy, some scenery and big creatures, however as Forge World move into resin figures, I suspect that this will also happen with Warhammer Forge. This will become the outlet for all those races and creatures we read about, but would never be part of a huge GW release.

I would suspect that at some point we will see a Kislev book and possibly even Cathay.

Another thing we will see for the first time tomorrow is the Grot Mega Tank and Necron Tomb Stalker.

I really like the Grot Mega Tank and hopefully I will be able to pick one up.


Also we will see the Dark Eldar, wonder if any of them will be for sale?
