Imperial Guard Shadowsword

Before the plastic Shadowsword was released this year, Forge World had their resin version.

Back at GamesDay 2001 I remember being very impressed with the model and thinking if I only had the money…

Of course I don’t play Imperial Guard so why would I have one…

Another fifteen dice…

Back in November 2007 I wrote a blog post on the (then) new Forge World  Macharius with Vulcan Mega Bolter.

I was astounded back then with the Heavy 15 capabilities of the Vulcan Mega Bolter. Throwing 15 dice on one go.

Well if resin isn’t your thing, then the forthcoming new plastic Shadowsword kit will make you happy as one of the variants you can make, the Stormlord, is armed with the Vulcan Mega Bolter! As you can see here from the Shadowsword box art from the latest White Dwarf.

Wonder how many of these models Simon is going to buy!

Plastic Shadowsword (for real)

A few weeks ago back in October I said that Games Workshop would release a plastic Shadowsword. There was some scepticsm on places such as Warseer, however I was happy that I had a good source.
Well in the new German White Dwarf they have a picture of the new plastic Shadowsword.

The article also says

Even though we associate the Apocalypse with the end of all things, for Warhammer 40.000 that is far from the truth – March will see plenty of new Apocalypse releases, among them a brand new super heavy tank. That is correct, the Shadowsword shown above is not a Forgeworld model, but a new plastic kit! And the best thing about it: this is only one out of six superheavy variants, that you can build with parts from the box!

There we go, so as the same source mentioned a plastic Stompa, then I know we’re going to see that too.
