    Forge World working on Heresy Era Space Marines

    From the latest Forge World Newsletter (242):



    And the text states that this is an "exclusive work-in-progress sneak peek of one of a veritable cornucopia of forthcoming Space Marine releases."

    The picture is titled mklVnl which suggests to me it is a MkV (Heresy Pattern) armour wearing Night Lord.

    Interesting times!

    You know they will!
    Can't help but wonder how far this will go - will we see Imperial Armour - Horus Heresy?
    Either way, if FW release sets of older marks or space marine armour they may as well just start printing money.

    They have already done Mk VI armour upgrade packs for ravenguard and Mk IV packs for red scorpions. Neither of these involved any pre Heresy stuff so I would wait and see.

    I just hope they make them non-chapter specific, 'cause resin is bloody fiddly to convert or get rid of iconography. some MkII and MkIII would be great to spread around the Veterans in my Ultramarines.

    It seems that all that forgeworld ever does is make ORK and CHAOS models and only makes
    the occasional TAU, Space Marine or imperial guard. not that im complaining cuz i collect both those races
    but they need to make more NIDZ

    I think they make stuff according to how well it will sell to be honest - Orks and Chaos are both big sellers, as are marines - and on if there is something in the range they can add to. 'Nids don't really have those gaps in the army that some of the other armies do.

    I think you may find FW have done more guard than anything else. This is because half of the designers and tech staff are military modellers by trade rather than warhammer based hobbyists.

    Recently is a bit of a relative term as far as GW products are concerned, and FW are even worse for it.

    Forge World, much like GW as a whole, tend to rely on momentum to sell their models as well as individual value - people often tend to collect armies in one go (especially if they can afford Forge World gear), so it makes sense to release a swathe of kit for one army all together - especially since they normally have a corresponding Imperial Armour book to go with them
    The current book is 90% Ork stuff, so that is why the Orks are getting so much love, and the previous ones were mainly for Chaos, though all books add some little odds and sods for an opposition force (Marines or Guard usually). As Dan rightly pointed out the background of the FW staff makes them tend towards more "realistic" style models anyway - Ork stuff may be Orky, but it's based on modern technology at its core.

    There is still a swathe of Guard stuff available - they don't really need much more as it stands. Space Marines are fairly well represented though they haven't really had anything new for a long time, and have been relegated to doors and chapter specific upgrade kits. Previous books have featured Tau and Tyranids as antagonists as well, so there is something out there for almost everyone - in fact the Eldar (both types) are probably the ones most in need of some FW love, perhaps the next IA book will feature them?

    They do release the odd selection of other models outside of the current IA book of course - Tau seem to do quite well for new Crisis suits for example.
