Hi There, The great announcement this Newsletter is the arrival of the mighty Reaver Titan for pre-order. Much anticipated since we first showed a prototype of the model back at Games Day UK last year, this huge model kit is now finished and available to order. It’s caused quite a stir while previewed at our recent events, having garnered lots of excited interest (and its fair share of “ooos” and “aaahs,”) and here it is at last for everyone to see in full! Thanks
The Mars Pattern Reaver Titan
The long awaited Reaver, designed by Will Hayes, is a fantastic model which is not only impressively huge, it`s also highly detailed, and comes complete with a full set of crew and a numbered certificate. You can find plenty of pictures of this extraordinary model, including interior detail shots Here on our website, with two examples painted in the colours of the Warp Runners by Phil Stutchinskas and the War Griffons Legion by Stuart Witter.
This huge model is a veritable goliath of the battlefield weighing in at well over twice the weight of a Warhound Titan, and standing at 400mm (approx) 16” high and 255mm (approx) 10” from shoulder to shoulder!
As well as being a truly imposing presence on the battlefield, it is, as you would expect from a Battle Titan, a terrifying opponent in gaming terms, and you can find experimental trial rules for the Titan for your Apocalypse games here. With lots of firepower and great durability thanks to its structure points and void shields, we’ve had it taking on multiple Scout Titans during play test and wiping the floor with slews of lesser super heavies! As well as dominating the tabletop, the Reaver would also make a stunning display model for collectors and a great painting project for hobbyists and gamers alike.
Ordering The Reaver Titan is available in three weapons combinations, each features the carapace mounted Apocalypse Missile Launcher, and it is available either with a Gatling Blaster and Turbo Laser Blaster, or with two Gatling Blasters or two Turbo Laser Blasters.
The Reaver Titan is available to pre order now with shipping from the 26th of May. However if you want a Reaver as soon as possible, we recommend you order soon, as we will only be making a few of these large and complex models each week.
In the next few days Forge World will be releasing its new 2008 catalogue. If you would like a copy of the catalogue (which is free regardless of wherever you are in the world), please get in touch with us at our catalogue request email address at firstname.lastname@example.org or give a ring and we’ll take your address details and get you one sent out.
Games Baltimore and Canada
Forge World will also be attending both Games Day Baltimore in the US on the 14th of June and Games Day Canada in Toronto on the 21st of June, and as usual, you will be able to place reservation orders with us to pick up and pay for at the event. Owing to ongoing demand for our models, we may not be able to take a full range of stock to these events, so if you would like to place a reservation order, please get the details to us as soon as possible, as the earlier you do so, the better your chances are of getting exactly what you are after on the day! Also, we are hoping to have a few Reaver Titans for sale at these events, but if you are definitely after one, we recommend you to place a reservation for it.
The final deadline for reservations for Games Day Baltimore is the 26th of May, and for Games Day Canada the 2nd of June.
Oh, new BIG Reaver Titan… If you want to see the work in progress have a look here.

Today I was at GamesDay 2007, and yes I did take a load of pictures (over 200) and yes I am uploading them as I speak.
Next year I think I will use a mobile phone and Shozu so that they are uploaded as I take them… that will be different.
I did enjoy the show, much more than last year. I suspect this may have been because there were lots of new Orks on show. Last year (for me anyway) I had already seen all the preview stuff, this year there was loads I hadn’t seen.
Here is the new Ork Trukk which will be out on the 7th January (in the UK).
Forgeworld had some nice displays, but didn’t seem to have as much new and unknown stuff as they use to have in previous years (maybe they are just getting it out faster).
They did though have the Reaver Titan.
Eventually you will be able to find all my photographs on the site.
