    New Plastic Kit Rumours

    Just thought I'd post these interesting rumours up.

    He's said that, as we all know by now, FW is now R&D for GW and that anything thats made a fair amount at FW will eventually head to plastic. The Baneblade is a good example of a supposidly 'impossible' kit heading to plastic. The Valk is likely to be the next because -
    A) Planet Strike
    Plastic stormies
    The theory is that the combination should sell well and that if so, Valks will be incorperated into the main list.

    The Thunderbolt falls into that grey area, and it depends greatly on whether 5th edition has rules for flyers in, and whether they return to Apoc. Whilst he said 'Were trying to do one superheavy for each race in plastic' (that last part caught my ear distinctly - so yes, Plastic Trygon and all the other Apoc goodies we've alll been promised). If theres flyer rules in 5th, then were not guaranteed a plastic thunderbolt, until AFTER Planet Strike as it's likely they'll have a crack at another flyer too (whats the point in flyer rules, if theres only one race that regularly uses em?)

    He also said that Krieg have been a massive seller for FW, and that if we didn't get plastic greatcoats with next edition then he'd be extremely suprised as they were not only passed development, but they've begun work on the heavy weapons teams...
    SO Greatcoats are being made, Valkyrie is most likely being made. Thunderbolt may be being made. And some other stuff like Trygon etc for Apoc are being made hopefully.

    Its why these rumours (and confirmation) of a plastic thunderbolt initially confused me - its not like theres a massive price gap between that and a battle force - compared to the other FW kits, they are relatively affordable so it all depends on how cheap they can make it, and how there used in the game - dont be suprised to see them come in units and essentially be a more powerful sentenal squadron.

    Also not sure if this has been posted anywhere - the guard tanks are getting variant sprues. So you'll see the demolisher come in plastic, likely with the baneblade as standard. You're also going to see the hellhound do the same with the Chimera kit. Oh yes, the guard are getting some love
    This one appears to confirm a plastic Thunderbolt. Which is a great idea, maybe a new option in the new IG codex. Alos the variant sprues maybe the start of IG codex stuff?

    A plastic Trygon would be nice, though I already have a Trygon. I would of thought that it would be wiser to make a plastic Hierodule, they aren't that much bigger but they could have way more options. Basically make a standard Hierodule with options like the Baneblade can be a Hellhammer etc. Also the Hierodule models are becoming a little dated in terms of thier design look so a new model would be a good idea.

    Thanks for those rumours, good to hear.8Y

    So where did you get these quotes from. This really isn't a rumor, just a generalization and prediction by an unknown source.

    Jaff - these are from Warseer from a good source. Not Brimstone or Harry but a good source.

    I agree a Hierodule would be much better but Im not sure if it is a Trygon that may just be a rumour.

    I doubt they would do a plastic Stompa, or an Ork heavy in the first place. All of this sounds expensive, and a little uneccessary on GW's part.

    If anything Orks will get a Squiggoth, since it does have a design, Stompa's and the like greatly look different.

    I think next to Imp's Ork's use the most flyers, for emperor's sake they got a book about a flying squadron

    If they ever did an affordable Fighta Bomma, I would be all over that.
