I was looking at a DKoK painting log and started to think to myself what i want or would like forgeworld to make.

If forgeworld did light infantry guard (Tanith, Tallarn or catachan equivient style armies) i would buy them.

If Forgeworld made stormtrooper models, i would buy them.

If forgeworld made another necron superheavy, flyer or unit, I would buy it.

Im just curous to see what people would want from forgeworld?

Ork Buggies.
If the Elysian ones are any indication of what they can churn out, I'd love to see some Ork Buggies.

Slaanesh and Tzeench Daemon Princes and Heralds.

Slaanesh and Tzeench Cult Terminator conversion kits.

Slaanesh and Tzeench themed vehicles and CSM infantry models.

Daemon Primarchs, converted to 40K from Epic.

Anything large and Dark Eldar.

I would buy them all.

Hey! That's no way to be talking about Scabeiathrax!

I'd like lots and lots of zany Admech stuff, large titan-sized C'tan, Angron, a leviathan model, Demiurg.

I'd love to see GW say to FW that they could create their own brand new race and codex. Never gonna happen, I know, but that would be schweet as. :)

Tyranid Turds you can place behind your army as they eat the enemy.

it is kind of funny actually, when starting my IG I was pricing new models and DKoK guard shipped from overseas come to parity with Vostroyans. They are actually more expensive, but the difference is pennies!

"IF"? What do you mean "if"?

They already do this now.
I've bought a fair bit of resin over the years from various manufacturers and FWs are by far the worst of the lot.
Their customer service can also stand to improve.

I would have said that's the one thing FW are good at. Ring them up about a missing part and they usually just send out a new one no questions asked.

well actually, the customer has to polish them, cut off the excessive flash and mould lines.... kelly rippa.

i also 2nd the notion of a titan sized c'tan...

Blood Angel dreadnought, Storm Raven, more eldar stuff. Don't really care what sort of eldar stuff, I'd consider buying most of it.

There are so many amazing niches in the 40k game that GW can't be bothered with, that Forgeworld could be exploiting. To this day, it remains a source of puzzlement to me as to why FW has not produced Gaunts Ghosts and the Blood Pact. Just about every 40k player I know would buy one or both of those armies. Same goes with Adeptus Mechanicus; many people I know would kill for a range of skitarii models and Techpriests.

There is so much untapped potential in the setting just waiting for someone to sculpt some models for them, but GW seems to be only interested in pumping out more Space Marines for easy money, rather than taking a bit of a risk and doing something more adventurous and ambitious. Its a real pity that GW is so lacking in vision and courage.

Blood Pack and ghosts would be amazing. going even a little bit by the popularity of those books alot of people would be interested. i mean really!

Conversion sets for Noise Marines and Thousand Sons (moreso the NM) of the quality and coolness they did the Berzerkers and Plague Marines would make me happy.

Ork Squig Riders!

A generic Chaos Dreadnought, without Legion iconography.

Demiurg!

A Horus Heresy supplement and complete range, including Primarchs. It will never happen, but it's nice to wish.

You know how they could improve their customer service? Putting all the right bits in the bag in the first place. :) That and answering emails.

I have to say I have yet to get either a bad casting, or an incomplete order from Forgeworld. last items I ordered were the World Eaters dread and some weapon arms. Disclaimer: my "main" hobby is armor model building, so am very familiar with resin.

Now that really is asking too much :P

And yeah, for a website-based company, they really aren't too hot on the email front.

I'd love some SM characters on Bikes and White Scars conversion bitz.

Also, some Sisters models would be great, even if they were just special characters or a Seraphim veteran or something. Theres a ton of potential they could work with.

If Forge World produced Death Guard Deathshroud models that would be amazing. I have always wanted a squad of mini Typhus'. However, I would like them to lower their prices to an acceptable level.

Stormraven with GK doors for those who are bad at converting...

I'll second the vote for the Storm Raven, if they introduce rules that let other chapters use it. :)

Edit: And a Tau walker of some sort. Not a Titan, but something slightly bigger than a battlesuit or dreadnought.

Really, I'd just buy the planet Lucius if they sold a resin model of it

I would love to see Adeptus Mechanicus.

It would be nice to see Squats again to actually, oh hang on, they all got eatan. Silly me.

A few different posed Grey Knights would be nice to, but perhaps they will all be 'eatan' too soon.

Roodpreeding!!!
six month wait
Proofreading!!! ( oops)

That aside.

Weapons and accessory kits. Any and all races.

I honestly can't think of an easier thing, or one that is likely to sell more. Just making right hand power fists, left hand pistols, etc, etc ( whichever way round, it escapes me at the moment....), available would make a killing.

A while ago someone was working out how big a small BFG ship (say a Cobra) would be in 40k scale. I think they worked out about the size of a school bus. How big would a planet be? and what would it do to our bank accounts? :eek:

at 1/60 scale, a planet would be about 200km in diameter. As Obi-Wan said, "that's no moon ..."
