It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week. There’s a new version of the famous Thunderhawk Gunship, a pair of new Imperial Armour books, and a set of several Star Players for Blood Bowl.

From the releases:

Particular care and attention has been paid to the power systems of this craft, with intakes, exhausts, air brakes and retrothrusters all where you would expect them to be. The attack wings, which each feature a heavy bolter turret, can be moved into either a stowed or attacking position, and the air brakes can be left open or closed. The front ramp can be opened and closed to disgorge the Thunderhawk’s cargo of Space Marines; of course, each of these movable components can be glued in the position of your preference. A pilot is included, who can easily be painted in the colours of your preferred Chapter.

This book and its contents are fully compatible with Warhammer 40,000 – Index: Chaos, expand the datasheets which are found there and contain all the information you need to field your Forge World Chaos models in the new edition of the Warhammer 40,000 game. Also included are both Power Ratings and an appendix for their use in Battle-forged armies. You will need a copy of both the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook and Warhammer 40,000 – Index: Chaos to make full use of this book and its contents.

This book and its contents are fully compatible with Warhammer 40,000 – Index: Imperium 1 and Warhammer 40,000 – Index: Imperium 2, expanding on the range of Datasheets to be found there and contain all the information you need to field your Forge World models in the new edition of the Warhammer 40,000 game. Also included are both Power ratings and an appendix for their use in Battle-forged armies.

Field Grim Ironjaw as a Star Player in your Dwarf Blood Bowl team with this resin kit. He’s a particularly stocky example of Dwarf strength, with bulging muscles beneath a frankly glorious beard featuring plaited-in details (skulls! He has skulls in his beard!) His mohawk is tall, and his fist clutches a terrifying-looking blade – truly, he’s an all-crushing Slayer and a half.

Grombrindal’s reputation is almost mythological. Tales abound of his shrewd tactical advice on the field of battle; on the Blood Bowl pitch this translates to a mastery of team strategies and the ability to draw the very best out of the players around him.

The Black Gobbo is legendarily devious, as evidenced by his countless elaborate schemes to undermine the White Dwarf. Before he even thinks about setting foot on the pitch, it’s a given that he will have already established a web of bribery, hostage taking and other sneakiness that ensures the cooperation of the match officials.

Expand, enhance, fill out and indeed boost your Skaven team with this booster pack! It contains 4 resin miniatures – 2 Gutter Runners, a Blitzer and a Thrower – each covered in detail and posed dynamically, with all the billowing cloaks, sinister hoods, sharpened teeth and ghastly claws you’d expect. the Blitzer is a particular standout: not content with his own natural claws, he’s added pointy things to nearly every surface of his body and armour he can…

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Ok- I get why they’re putting out a pack of four minis to turn your team into a “full” 16 rat roster. And it is really best to field as many gutter runners as you can.

    But why on earth are they adding a thrower and blitzer? You get as many of those as you can have in the plastic kit.

    • ZeeLobby

      Cause then you gotta buy 2 4-man packs 😀

      • odinsgrandson

        I don’t think you understood me.

        A maxed Blood Bowl team is 16 players- and they sell a 12 player teams, with a booster that adds 4 players.

        One would assume that the extra 4 players would be the ones they left out of the core (so that you’d end up with a playable maxed 16 man team). But they aren’t.

        If you guy this to boost your skaven team, you end up with 14 players that you can use, plus an extra blitzer and thrower that you can’t field because you’re already maxed.

        That is odd.

        • ZeeLobby

          Right. So to get the last two players yo fill out your 16 player roster you’d have to buy another another 4 pack (well or convert)

          • odinsgrandson

            The last two are Linemen- the only player type that’s not in the 4 pack.

            So… convert?

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. I guess convert.

      Less concern about maxing a roster, more concern about different poses?

    Last week the Imperial Armor books went up for preorder. Same day as the rest of 8th edition. Other 2 are coming down the pipe.

    There’s no way I’d buy a £450 aircraft model that doesn’t come with a flying stand.

    • Ghool

      Just a stand? For that price, I’d expect the thing to actually fly, with a trained hamster for a pilot.

      • PRAY FOR MOJO

        With miniature goggles, and a little scarf?

        • Ghool

          I’d pay extra for those.
          Seriously though, this costs more than an R/C plane that actually flies!

          • PRAY FOR MOJO

            This one can fly once… if you throw it.

      And this is why we scratch build our superheavies. Good grief.
