Forge World continues their Games Day 2012 previews with Angron, the Primarch of the World Eaters chapter.

From the preview:

Angron the Red Angel, Primarch of the World Eaters, will be available to purchase in limited numbers at Games Day UK. Simon Egan has laboured for many months to create this incredibly detailed multi-part resin model showing the Primarch of the World Eaters charging headlong into battle whilst Space Marines fall before his mighty axes, Gorefather and Gorechild. We also decided that this very special model deserves appropriate packaging, and so Angron is supplied in a very handsome presentation box as well.

    Nice. I think tackling a Primarch is I pretty hefty undertaking, and it looks like they pulled it off. I hope they get to do all of them, including Horus and the Big Guy.

    Great mini but at the hefty price of 50£. Even considering the box being made by slaaneshi succubi, the price is quite steep for a 28mm.

    STILL a great and awesome piece.

      Like the mistake Privateer made with their first gen epic caster, the price is inflated because of the “epic” base that you may or may not use. If you were just buying the Primarch, and not 3 other marines as well, it would be cheaper.

        All the Forge World stuff is out of my price range. I would literally have to win the lottery before I would ever buy this. I still like it.

  • An excellent piece of work, even at that price, made completely rubbish by being limited edition and impossible to get hold of if you don’t go to games day…

    …I would swear now but I am aware that this is a family forum…

    BISCUITS and MARMITE!!! >;(

      It only says “available in limited numbers at Games Day”, not that it is a limited edition model and only so many have been made.

      The PP Mountain King was available in limited numbers at Lock & Load, the Wold Wrath was available in limited numbers at Gen-Con etc.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if this was made available through the website after Games Day.

      As with many GW “limited edition” or “special edition” models there are always more produced than they advertise usually bought up by staff so they can later be hocked on Ebay.

        Forge World have confirmed, via their Facebook page, that all of the models they’re selling at Games Day (with the exception of their show-only models) will be vailable in the same format/packaging through their web store within the next few weeks.

        As for Forge World being expensive, the last FW models I bought was a pack of three Chaos Dwarf sorcerers for £18. If that had been a regular GW product, I would have been charged £9.50 for one (the current cost of a Dwarf character) and it would have been some Finecast rubbish, and not the perfect casts I actually got.

          “the last FW models I bought was a pack of three Chaos Dwarf sorcerers for £18. If that had been a regular GW product, I would have been charged £9.50 for one”

          That comparison only shows how expensive the standard GW product is rather than pushing the VFM on the FW mini add in the fact that the last bit of FW stuff I bought was Finecast gives a disturbing lottery factor when you place your FW order …
