Forgeworld Newsletter #233
There’s just enough time before our Open Day this weekend to fill you in with some further previews and news of what’s going on at the event. Remember, entry to the Open Day is free and it takes place this coming Sunday, the 28th of March at Warhammer World in Nottingham. Doors will open at 10am, and the event will finish at 4pm. We hope to see as many of you there for what is always one of the best shows we do in the year.
We hope to have limited stocks of the following brand new models to purchase at the show. This is a great opportunity to get hold of these great new models, well before their standard release date.
New Tau Battlesuits!
Our first exciting preview for the weekend are three new variant XV9 Battlesuits, which you can see below, and include a new Tau Commander. These fantastic and characterful new Tau battlesuits have been designed by Daren Parrwood. Rules for the XV9 can be found in Imperial Armour Apocalypse II.
First of a new set of resin upgrades for the plastic Stompa kit, we have a titan-killing Claw Arm, a new Ork Stompa Head complete with the baleful gaze of Mork (or possibly Gork) and fighting-platform jaw, and the devastating if dangerously erratic Lifta-Droppa! These wonderfully ramshackle looking sets have been designed by Stuart Williamson, with crew by Mark Bedford.

Space Wolves Transfer Sheets
We also hope to have the first examples of our new Space Wolves Transfer Sheet available for sale at the Open Day. These large (A4) full colour sheets contain the symbols for each of the Space Wolves Great Companies, allowing you to customise the Sons of Fenris in any manner you choose. The sheet has over 400 symbols, including symbols sized for Terminator shoulder pads, and extensive wolf head and claw vehicle icons. The Space Wolves Transfer Sheet has been produced by Paul Rudge.
Imperial Armour Volume 8 Available for Pre-order!
As a special offer at Open Day 2010, attendees will be the first to be able to pre-order the soon-to-be-released Imperial Armour 8 -Raid on Kastorel-Novem. Copies paid for at the show will be signed by the author, and sent without any postage charge when the book is released.
Other New Models also Available at the Show
As featured in our last preview newsletter, we also expect to have Raven Guard Rhino Doors, Raven Guard Land Raider Doors, Raven Guard Terminator Land Raider Doors, Elysian Troops for the Valkyrie, the four wheeled Tauros Assault Vehicle, and our new show-only model for 2010, the Ork Runtbot with Grot available to buy in limited quantities.
Things to do at the Show
At the Forge World Open day, we’ll have all our studio staff on hand to answer your questions and show off lots of previously unseen models and other cool things we have in store for you. We’ll also have a well-stocked sales stand, participation games, a pre-production copy of our next Imperial armour book on display, and of course the facilities of Warhammer World and Bugman’s Bar will also be open.
