FORGE WORLD FRIDAY: CERASTUS KNIGHT ACHERONhttp://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/CERASTUS_KNIGHT_ACHERON.html
I really don’t feel like talking about this one. I’m not really a fan of the Cerastus Knight pattern (the Lancer was close, but the skeleton shield ruined it). This Knight model seems to be a fast generalist super-heavy, with a giant flamer for troops and a giant saw for vehicles. Also a Heavy Bolter because Imperial Knights. I’ll try harder next week but I just don’t understand what this model exists for.
FORGE WORLD FRIDAY: QUESTORIS KNIGHT MAGAERAhttp://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/QUESTORIS_KNIGHT_MAGAERA.html
Because normal Knight Titans weren’t Mechanicus enough, and that’s heresy. Rather than a bigger new Knight with a new look, we get the basic model improved with a hand-full of new weapons. The main addition is the new lightning cannon designed for frying large blobs of MEQs. The other being a death claw designed for destroying buildings, with a rad cleanser for wearing down tougher units. If I had the money I’d love to own one of these. My only worry is that this kit seems to be an upgrade kit to the Knight model, though the bits picture on the website and the “complete resin and plastic kit” tag in the description seem to conflict with each other.
FORGE WORLD FRIDAY: TRIAROS ARMORED CONVEYOR AND ARCHMAGOS DRAYKAVAK
The Mechanicus are some crazy people. They found a way to put a train on tank treads and make is a hostile environment APC. While it may not be bristling with weapons I love the simplistic design. In other universe, I could see this thing using grav technology over treads. Maybe we’ll get that as a variant. Just tell me how many bodies I can cram into this thing and I’m sold.
Speaking of a disregard for bodies, we have a new Archmagos character.
This wolf-faced bastard was kicked out of the Space Wolves for being a lightweight. This skull-faced Heretek is the Chenkov of tech-priests that joined Horus because Chaos knows know human rights or morality in science. He also has a floating podium and options for a generic Archmagos, so even loyalists can get in on a big bad Mechanicus leader that doesn’t have a giant shell thingy on his back. If I had the money, I’d take this guy as an Iron Priest.
Things I’m Tried of in the 40K Fandom #02
The Female Space Marines debate.
- Space Marines are only cool because they are written to be cool.
- We should be spending our energy on purging furry Space Marines.
FORGE WORLD FRIDAY: RAVEN GUARD LEGION CONTEMPTOR DREADNOUGHThttp://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/RAVEN_GUARD_LEGION_CONTEMPTOR_DREADNOUGHT.html
Everybody is getting one eventually, and this week it is Raven Guard’s turn to get another giant robot. I really do like the contemptor model, and I’d probably own one if I didn’t hate buying new rules. The Raven Guard flavor is great on this model, with the avian trim and totem. I just have to ask: what is that studded pattern supposed to be? It looks like someone glued a ribbon to the thing while sculpting and left most of it on for the final product. Also, would it have been too out-of-setting to give this Dreadnought a Corvus style head?
I know that feel. I only got a new codex by selling a shitty gamecube game. And I’ll never afford an Imperial Knight with my new addiction to gunpla and anime figures. I blame you.
I know dat feel bro. I literally started collecting anime figures and gunpla because Warhammer was too expensive and I needed to find a new hobby. More expensive than anime figures and gunpla. Just let that shit sink in.
If GW does the “new rulebook in 2 years” thing again, I’m dropping the game. I can make up a game for giant robots and anime tiddies instead.
Space wolves with wolf standard. This is the old metal model standard bearer. I just recently got the banner in the mail and it is gorgeous. They sell a bunch of different army banners that work great if you have these types of models.
This is the user I bought from, I went with the generic space wolves banner so I could use any HQ with it.
bonus reblog for this week because I’ve been looking for another banner store
