If you could get Forge World to make you ANYTHING, what would it be?

Personally, I'd like Genestealer Cult conversion kit for my Cadians to make them into Hybrids.

It's your turn. Go!

Damn thats a difficult question to answer...

But I'm just going to say Mechanicus. It's the rumour, and it's potentially the most interesting avenue they can currently explore.

Female Imperial Guard. Start small, like a Commissar or tank crewer. Then make a troop squad and command squad, then expand to a full regiment like DKoK or Elysians.

Mk VIII Astartes armor kits.

Elysian Commissar!

Models and rules for BL characters, like Commissar Cain and Jurgen, Honsu, Ventris, Amberly Vail, ect.

Hendarion
19-01-2011, 08:45
I had a real hard thought about it. First I thought "Imperial and Eldar Knights". Screw it.
Large scale Harlequin Solitaire? Screw it.

Eldar Exodiths. Yep, that's it.

I'd be happy with just some farseer/warlock jetbikes. Oh and the fabled "Slicing Orbs of Zandros" would be nice to see too, but thats just not gonna happen.

Axel
19-01-2011, 09:18
A Leviathan command vehicle :-)

Cannot be that much larger then a Manta - and actually its possible that here are smaller versions that are not decisively larger then a Baneblade, and thus cheaper then ie. a Reaver.

I'd like to see the basics for all(most) races fleshed out. For example:

- space marines: PA and TDA shoulder pads for all the founding chapters.
- Eldar: Upgrade set to make jetbike seer councils.
- IG: Female Guard conversion sets.
- Orks: They have pretty much everything they need right now.
- DE: The super heavy slave barges.
- Necrons: Would have to see what the new codex will bring up.
- GK\Sisters: Wait and see what the new codex brings up.
- Tau: More suit varients.

I would also like to see the Mechanicus\Dark mechanicus done as full armies each.

AlexHolker
19-01-2011, 09:37
A pair of 6 torso, 10 head upgrade packs for Dark Eldar to convert them to all-female or all-male squads.

Ciaphas Cain and company would be cool, too.

But for the most part, what I want (female soldiers) I want in plastic, not in resin at double the price.

19-01-2011, 09:55
The Tyranid in me wants more big bugs. Specifically, the resurrection of the old bio-tanks.

Exocrines, Malefactors, Dactylis' and Haruspexes.

And a Dominatrix model. Come on Forgeworld, it would be smaller than a... Manta. That's about it though.

Maybe a Viragon - it got a mention in the 5th edition Tyranid codex, though without a name (the big Trygon that killed a Titan legion).

Whitehorn
19-01-2011, 10:05
More pre-Heresy models masqueraded as 40k models please!

PH Terminator shoulder pads.
Custodes models.
Conversion parts - more bionics and styled arms/heads.
Components for basic vehicle kits.

Well, I wouldn't mind seeing Inquisitor (i.e. 54mm models) done as a FW range, but that's just not going to happen.

Gah, no. Resin is nightmarish to work with for conversions. GW proper needs to make plastic sprues with common Imperial weapons, full stop.

I will echo the call for a Dark Mechanicus to buff up the Chaos side of things a bit. They did a really nice job with Vraks heretics models, albeit the lists sucked.

Also, Adeptes Arbites.

Missing Chaos Titan weapon arms

A Quality control step?

Back in the real world:
Female Guard

Tank riders- preferably done as legs, with separate bodies etc, so you can attach whichever top bit you like to them.

Conversion kits for Guardsmen to Tau Auxiliaries

Eldar exodites

Hendarion
19-01-2011, 14:29
A Quality control step?
Yes, PLEASE!
And include in that step to check if the resin has hardened enough already! My Pulsars arrived warped by 90°!

thoughtfoxx
19-01-2011, 14:45
A quality control step is a good idea. Too many too badly warped pieces as well as missing parts in orders. [that said they are very good at replacing parts].

From a models perspective - more brass etch - lots of it. c'man guys this is not difficullt nor time consuming to produce and it makes a HUGE difference to models at an affordable cost. - I'm talking for all of the xenos races here.

Then i'd have to go with admech, knight titans and skitarii.

[also adopting a wait and see attitude toward necrons].

DuskRaider
19-01-2011, 14:53
Let's see:
Primarchs,both Pre- and Post- Heresy (ie Daemon Primarchs)
Pre-Heresy Plasma Guns, damnit!
God-specific titan upgrades
brass etched Nurgle icons

Ambull Tau
19-01-2011, 15:18
Heroes of the Imperium:
Navigator, a Rogue Trader, some Arbites, some 'Remembrancers/Imperial Citizens'.

A proper Adeptus Mechanicus range, with vehicles, troops, additional mods to make Imperial Guard into Skitari, the whole thing, would be awesome.

A range of 'Tau Auxillary' including vehicles from other races, a Guevessa conversion kit and other cool things to make the Alien Empire actually have aliens in it.

Some more stuff for BFG would be nice as well. Plus BFG rules updates.

Belesarius
19-01-2011, 15:23
Admech

Reasonably priced Combi Weapons (5 pack)

More pre-heresy bits. (Weapons/shoulder pads)

More Chapter Specific shoulder pads.

'Pre-heresy' style Lightning Claws... Read talon of horus/Chaos lord style loyalist LC.

19-01-2011, 15:46

Genestealer Cult Limo please! Will second the hybrid upgrade sprue too!

A new beast of Nurgle model that draws inspiration from the old skool and doesn't look like egg, as the new one does. I want a tentacle riddled, pus covered loveable puppy!

Leftenant Gashrog
19-01-2011, 17:42
Another vote for Genestealer Hybrids.

I'd like to see different MkVI marines, I can't stand the torso on the current ones - maybe go for a full copy of the ones off the cover of the RT Rulebook/RTB01 Box.

eldargal
19-01-2011, 17:50
Female Eldar characters and Aspect Warriors (ie girly exarchs and troops for Scorpions, DA, FD etc)
More Eldar vehicles that don't use the Falcon chassis.
Eldar terrain (modular straight and curved wall panels allowing us to build Eldar buildings up to any size we wish)

Female Imperial Guard
Praetorians, Mordians, Valhallans etc if GW won't do them in plastic.

Anything at all for SoB.

DuskRaider
19-01-2011, 18:00

IRON HANDS! It's past due.

And to go with that:

IH Veterans
IH Venerable Dread/Commander Special char Dread
Iron Father rules/model

AdMech Skitarii
Preatorian Heavy Weapon Servitors
Knight Class Walkers

Necron Superheavy Walker

Hendarion
19-01-2011, 20:27
Now xenos won't happen. Squats maybe... as WarhammerForge made ChaosDorfs. XD

Ad Mech requires a lot of things and after all I'd classify it yet again as an Imperial army. Not required imo.

19-01-2011, 20:52
Hahaha, ok, ok ^^ (Marine doors... lols... or maybe another Ork Trukk?)
But seriously, if they freak out in 40k as much as on Fantasy, they'd make Squats. Squats are cried for so long, same as Chaos Dwarfs in Fantasy had been. I *somehow* smell a niche there ;)

I'd like Genestealer Cult ....Hybrids.

Seconded. Given what they've done with the renegades, I could see this being done :D



Mechanicus

Would rather see it done by GW proper, but yeah, Seconded.


Imperial and Eldar Knights

Seconded


A Leviathan command vehicle

Or even a Capitol Imperialis


Genestealer Cult Limo please!

There was some rumour a while back that FW were working on an IG staff car (It never materialised) so yes I would like to see something like this.




Well, I wouldn't mind seeing Inquisitor (i.e. 54mm models) done as a FW range, but that's just not going to happen.

I don't see why not, I'd love to see some Inquisitor models done by FW.

Which leads me nicely to the thing I'd ask for...Necromunda Gangs.
Seeing what they can do with a limited number of leg/torso/arm/head combos for the various IG ranges they've done, A set for each of the main houses (and scavvies :D) would be fantastic.
I'm sure one or two necro gang based Armies would spawn from that too :D:D

Bonzai
19-01-2011, 22:41
1. Xeno equivelents to the Planet Strike terrain. A Fortress, Bastion, and Landing pad for each race.

2. Female Farseer.

3. Seer Council on bikes.

4. More Necron love... thinking flyers here...

5. Thunderwolf Calvary.

6. Non-Apoc tau vehicle.

7. Another Tau Empire sub race.

8. A Necron Lord character with a wraith body.

9. I would mention some Tyrannid models, but I think GW is getting to them.

10. DE Apoc love, some non-flying ones.

IA hopes:

1. Necron vs Sisters of Battle (Sanctuary 101): new formations, including super heavies, tomb stalkers, one or two other units, a special lord (like the one mentioned above), and alternative army lists. Like a harvesting force, or tomb guard (all scarab, constructs, etc..).

2. Grey Knight vs 1k Sons and Daemons: Include some new daemon units and apoc love, Rubic Terminators, Terminator Aspiring Sorcerer, a 1k Son character, Sorcerer Dreadnought, and some new demonic construct hybrid (their verson of Bloodslaughters and blight drones). Grey Knights.... we'll see whats missing in their up coming codex.

3. DE vs Emperor's Children: lol... the possibilities scare me.

AndrewGPaul
19-01-2011, 22:55
Things I'd like ...

Thousand Sons Chaos Terminator conversion kit.

A non-stripped down version of the Tauros and Tauros Venator. If I was really wishlisting I'd ask for them with 2nd edition metal Cadian style crew. :)

Some renegade Zoats. Ideally with a mixture of Tyranid and scavenged Imperial, Tau and Ork weaponry.

Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM! and Jurgen.

Imperial civilians, in a range of professions. Not just gothic downtrodden factory serfs, either.Do 'em like Antenociti's Governance of Technology civilians, with alternate hands holding weaponry or more innocent items (briefcases, etc).

While we're at it, Eldar civilians. And some Tau.

Some Adeptus Arbites. not just combat squads, but snipers, land speeders, crowd control, etc. Mounted officers, too.

40K versions of the Ragnarok heavy tank and the other Imperial vehicles from Epic: Swordwind.

An Epic-scale Fury space interceptor. It'd be rather big, though - about the size of that Chaos Harbinger bomber or so.

If they did do Primarchs, the only way I'd buy them is if they didn't look like the ridiculous over-decorated monstrosities in the current art. I want a Rogal Dorn like this:

104400

and a Warmaster Horus like this:

104401

Necromunda gangs would be cool, but I wouldn't bother with the existing Palatine/Primus Houses. There are thousands of hives on Necromunda; pick another one and do some entirely new houses. Necromunda: Trazior Hive would be interesting.

My dear, you've taken the words out of my mouth. +1 to that.

And... better casting techniques. Seriously, almost every other model company that dabbles in resin does better casting work for lower prices. I've had ONE FW model that didn't need surgery/filler to make it workable (Avatar). I've seen resin spaceship models in blisters in my FLGS that are cheapish and beautifully cast. Ultraforge minis are well detailed and well-molded. Come on FW, it can't be that hard!

Oh, one more thing: a USA-based casting studio. If GW can mold in Memphis, Tennessee, no reason FW can't do the same. It would ease the workload on the British casters, simplify and cheapen shipping, and provide faster turnaround of orders to North America and possibly Oz and Asia. Besides, I strongly suspect FW contracts out at least some of its casting anyway.

I'd rather Forge World didn't simply re-hash stuff I can already buy from GW. That's why I'd like to see some new House gang designs.Expand the game, don't just re-do what's already been done.

Of course, now you've got me thinking of the aort of archetypes you could use for Necromunda: Trazior Hive. The existing setting is, roughly, the Old West in domes - small farming settlements, rough trading posts and mining towns, raiding injuns, etc. I'm sure you could come up with something new and different. Perhaps Colonial Africa in domes, the fall of Rome in the West as the industrial Houses pull out of the undercity, or Hammer Transylvania among the pipeworks. A bit more Old World in style. Perhaps Trazior's Spyrers look more like the old Brat gangs - ornate weaponry and flowing silks, exotic mohawks and the like.

-Loki-
20-01-2011, 09:47

If they could match the quality of FW designed bits then i'd happily buy them (theres good stuff, but no FW quality stuff yet) , but I dont ever see them doing cybernetic space-marine heads as they'd get shut down in short order. Anything iconic to the 40k universe is a no-go which limits what they can do.

20-01-2011, 20:39
Continue allusions to obscure fluff. The knights in IA9, for example.
Mention something like knights in maybe three consecutive books to build tension, then release them.

But in terms of things I'd want to see but will probably never happen, a six-volume set of the Armageddon wars. 1 for AW1, 2 for AW2, 3 for AW3. Books for other armies between each Armageddon set.
Show the development of Ork and Imperial wargear between the second and third wars. Ork stuff has become more ramshackle and brutal over time, this could be attributed to increasing aggression as the Waaagh! grows.

First one reads like an Inquisitorial report, second like a historic document, third like a series of incoming reports. Both second and third include Uplifting Primer laughable propaganda.
AW1 has models for Grey Knights, Space Wolves and Daemons, AW2 has retro-styled Ork and Imperial stuff (maybe even squats) including younger Yarricks and Ghazghkulls, Feral Orks and Squig Catapult types of silliness, AW3 has 3rd/4th/5th edition styled Ork and Imperial stuff, including a bit on Piscina IV (Dark Angels and Nazdreg's Bad Moons), Golgotha (especially if Squats are in AW2) and Death Company Tycho.
Minimal Infantry Squads and heavy weapons (with the expectation that other squads will be converted from them) for maybe six IG regiments over the course of the whole thing, with conversion kits for a few more (Catachan to Ork Hunters, for example).

Christ, where do I start?

General:

Warlord Titan kit (yes, I know I'm crazy. If they can make a stinking Manta, they can make a Warlord.)
Chaos Warlord Titan (Can't have one without the other.)
Daemonic Titan Upgrade kit (CC Tail, etc...)


Space Marines:
Salamander Power Armor Shoulder Pad Kit
Salamander Brass Etch
Salamander Termie Torso kit
Salamander Venerable Dreadnought
Salamander Icons

Chaos Space Marines:
Shoulder Pads Kits for all the Legions, especially Alpha Legion
Termie Pad Kits for all Legions, especially Alpha Legion
A New Chaos Land Raider variant (Hell, new vehicles in general that are Chaos only would be great.)
A Chaos Razorback conversion kit (Though I'll admit I have figured out a way to make one with GW parts.)
Noise Marine Upgrade kits, like the plague marine and berzerker ones.
Thousand Sons Upgrade Kits, like the plague marine and berzerker ones.
Termie upgrade kits for Noise Marines and Thousand Sons.
Special Characters for both.
Heralds for Slaanesh and Tzeentch.
Their own version of the Vraks series
Full Size Harbinger model. (I did say I was crazy)

Tyranids:
Harpy
Tervigon
Tyrannofex
Dominatrix

Imperial Guard:
Armageddon Pattern Griffon Conversion Kit
Armageddon Pattern Colossus Conversion Kit
Armageddon Pattern Salamander Scout Kit
Armageddon Ork Hunters Conversion kit
Armageddon Steel Legion Models

That's all I can think of off the top of my head right this second. I don't own Orks, Tau, or Necrons, so I can't think of what they need, and my Eldar is working towards a Cobra before I figure out what they might need in the future.

Warlord Titan kit (yes, I know I'm crazy. If they can make a stinking Manta, they can make a Warlord.)
It's a lot easier to create something that is strong and stable enough to not get broken if it's got a low centre of gravity and a large footprint. The Manta was merely an exercise in futility, but I'd laugh at you when your Warlord's knees give way, and the falling weight smashes your thousand-pound miniature's arms to smithereens.

AW2 has retro-styled Ork and Imperial stuff (maybe even squats) including younger Yarricks and Ghazghkulls

Why "retro-styled"? the Second War for Armageddon took place in 941.M41. That's more recent than the battle for Macragge against Hive Fleet Behemoth and the Badab War, both of which use brand-new-looking kit. In fact, the original Yarrick miniature is Yarrick during the Second War for Armageddon, or possibly immediately after.

Even the First War was in 444.M41, which is still pretty recent.

It's a lot easier to create something that is strong and stable enough to not get broken if it's got a low centre of gravity and a large footprint. The Manta was merely an exercise in futility, but I'd laugh at you when your Warlord's knees give way, and the falling weight smashes your thousand-pound miniature's arms to smithereens.


You underestimate the strength of resin. There's also plenty of scope for weight saving by having hollow pieces instead of thick lumps.

A Warlord Titan is happening. Tony Cotterell told me so himself. It may not be this year or next year, but it is in their "Large Projects" pipeline. The Phantom is a precursor, as it has less interior detail. In fact, Will Hayes considers the project already started - it will share weapons options with the reaver.

The Gargant is the least likely, because of the ridiculous detail it would require.

That's true, but it was also set in M41 during the editions where it first appeared (isn't the 2nd edition starter set supposed to be in the Second War?), whereas the third war was in third edition around when the current Brian Nelson orks were introduced. The original yarrick mini is what I'm thinking of in terms of content, but rendered in a more current style.

Yeah, those are almost certain to be tied into a warlord release. The Quake/Volcano/Plasma Destructor are archetypical warlord weapons.

For the Reaver/Warlord Will Hayes said he was planning a battleship-type carapace turret into which the different weapons would be interchangeable.

I'd rather Forge World didn't simply re-hash stuff I can already buy from GW. That's why I'd like to see some new House gang designs.Expand the game, don't just re-do what's already been done.

Please, at LEAST let them do the established gangs first, give us poor Necromunda players a chance to spruce up our gangs before wallet raping us for the cost of a new rule book and umpteen new gangs that we'll HAVE to buy....:cries:;):D


Of course, now you've got me thinking of the aort of archetypes you could use for Necromunda: Trazior Hive. The existing setting is, roughly, the Old West in domes - small farming settlements, rough trading posts and mining towns, raiding injuns, etc. I'm sure you could come up with something new and different. Perhaps Colonial Africa in domes, the fall of Rome in the West as the industrial Houses pull out of the undercity, or Hammer Transylvania among the pipeworks. A bit more Old World in style. Perhaps Trazior's Spyrers look more like the old Brat gangs - ornate weaponry and flowing silks, exotic mohawks and the like.

OR. Jump worlds and pick another Hive World somewhere else *cough*Armageddon*cough*, I mean there's loads of worlds out there that could fit into the Necromunda framework.
It could be a world that's gripped by a new sinister cult and many little conflicts that eventually gives rise to a massive worldwide war *cough*Genestealers*cough* *cough*three part IA series*cough*.


I'd like to see a Sabbat campaign IA book. There is so much material there, guard mod kits, stumble-guns, wire wolves etc. Abnett did a good job creating a universe within a universe and it's ripe for expansion.


Oh god yes, Vitrians!!!!

I know it's unlikely, as it cuts across the chaos cult stuff, but still I can dream.

Only in a clumsy very RT style way, the very few units that directly cross over (Off the top of my head....Possessed Patriarch and Summoned Daemons, possibly mutants and beastmen) were entirely optional so they could easily be ignored and a Cult/Coven/Community list is still an easy job.
*cough*especially if you started off with small "Gangs" which then flourished into huge armies, possibly even leading to the arrival of a Tyranid Splinter fleet *cough*.



Ahhhh...Subtle:D

Eh? The existing gangs are all available. Granted, not in as much variety as they used to be, but they're there. In any case, I doubt a Forge World resin Van Saar ganger will look the same as a Specialist Games metal one - you'd end up buying a whole new gang anyway.

My position in general is that I don't want to see Forge World simply filling in the gaps until Citadel Miniatures come along and replace them. I'm pretty sure Forge World themselves don't want that either. :)

I was hoping for some new reaver weapons, so sent them an e-mail to ask. I particularly wanted new carapace weapons. They replied that they have no plans to do any more reaver weapons, although they might in the future. I'm guessing when they do the warlord, as RCgothic mentioned.

Initial ideas:



Miniatures/Models:

-Warlord Titan (Mars and Lucius Pattern)
-Reaver Titan (Lucius Pattern)
-Knight Titans (Lucius, Mars, Riza, etc etc Patterns)
-Character Titans and Crew
-Imperial Guard Lander
-Stormraven conversions for other chapters (command raven, transport raven, fire support raven)
-Stormbird
-Range of Character models - new and some which have never been done/need updates: every race from Marines to Guard, Dark Eldar, Ork, Tau etc



Ranges to explore:

Mechanicus and Dark Mechanicus - troops, vehicles, servitors, Skitarii, magos and factions within

Deathwatch and Xeno Hunters - (Deathwatch Dreadnoughs, extermination stuff, conversions bits, custom comanders, Inquisitors and a load of wack aliens and weird stuff to hunt and kill)



Books:

Mechanicus and dark Mechanicus style vraks books or maybe one for each side and then a campaign book

Titan legions (Rules with Knights and Warlords,, Character Titans and comanders, lots of focus on big stuff and Titan style battles and campaigns like in Mechanicus and Titanicus)

Death Watch and Xenos Hunters (Pick up where the codex that never was left off)

An extra Galactic campaign book - exploring the void beyond the imperium with a crusading fleet with a mix of Titans, Marines, Guard etc etc and forging off into a new Area to explore - complete freedom to create a new race, maybe run into a new bigger bad nid hive fleet or alien empre on the move?

I would love to see Forge World put out more bitz packs for 'normal' conversions.

Like just sets of special weapons and heavy weapons. As it is I know a lot of people having problems just getting enough of certain bitz to make standard troops because GW kits come with maybe one of a specific bit. (One missile launcher in a Devs box? What the deuce, GW!)

FabricatorGeneralMike
04-02-2011, 18:49
First of all I would love them to finish the Elysian range, Commissars, advisiors, new drop sentinal etc etc etc.

Arbites, just think of all the possibilities.... :angel:

Vitrian Dragoons, the way Dan Abnett discribed them was so bada$$ only Forgeworld would be able to do them justice.

More reaver weapons, more Adeptus Mechanicus hell ANY Adeptus Mechanicus. The Tech-Priest and servitor models where amazing imho ymmv.

I would like to see all the first founding chapters finished off with chapter specific parts ala shoulder pads, storm shields, maybe some kind of artificer armour kit. Finish off the SM armour mk's. Maybe make some more variations in the sets. Terminator Sp's would be nice also. Maybe some pre-heresy stuff also like the Sisters of Silence or Adeptus Custodes. They don't even have to be game usuable, just the models would be rather awsome I thinks. Primarchs would be kinda cool also. :shifty:

I would love to see a Lucius patteren Reaver, or another Forge-World's patteren. Maybe make a Princeps in a Amenotic immersion tank. That would be rather cool.

Thats all that I can think off the top of my head. I say chain them up in the Dungon in Lenton and whip them until we get what we want out of them!!!! :shifty:

since FW now base the vast majority of their releases around single or multi-book campaigns, my vote would be a campaign book/series around the Ork invasion of Ryza Forgeworld -

-Basis for Titans
-Basis for Knights
-Basis for AdMech as primary Imperial defence force - Skitarii, Titan Legion vassals etc
-Basis for alternate Ork Blitz Brigade/Armoured Krumpany list as a creditable opposing force
-Basis for in-depth urban warfare scenarios, including fighting across working industrial complexes/other lethal terrain

Advantages -
-Imperial vs. Aliens - rather than human on (almost) human conflict.
-Vehicle for a totally new, and by all accounts strikingly different and very popular, Imperial faction
-One side - the Orks - already has a 'komprehensive' suite of FW material, and the idea of the Ork equivalent of a tank battlegroup could be quite popular - the Dred Mob list from IA8 couldn't actually include some of the FW stuff in great quantity
-Because of the above, the team would be free to concentrate the bulk of model development work on the AdMech
-Warlord Titan/Knights as 'flagship' model releases?

Oh, and of course...no Space Marines ;)

I think a campaign book where the Tzeentch and the Eldar fight a war against each other by proxy by manipulating the Imperium would be awesome. This would allow:

- more imperial units (a requirement for any book) – possibly female
- Thousand Sons conversion bits
- A new Thousand Son and Eldar special character
- new daemon engines and Eldar vehicles (harlequin jetbikes!)

I know the whole “I wonder why the orks are attacking us – oh, it was those damn pesky eldar” thing has been done too many times already, but I’m sure the Forgeworld guys could put in a few twists.

There's an easy way to make this something completely new: the Eldar (and followers of Tzeentch) are manipulating the Imperium into going on the offensive.

From the Imperium's point of view, they're just stomping on cockroaches whenever they come out into the open, not realising or simply not caring that the Eldar and followers of Tzeentch are both deliberately leaking intel about the other to the Inquisition so they can get splatted, as well as fighting their own secret war.

Ad Mech Vs Dark Mech.. why not just go with an IA book of the Mars conflict during the heresy? I'd love some more Adeptus Mechanicus stuff from them. Though they'll have to watch the spindly easily broken bits though! And can we have more cool robed servitors and varied servo skulls? Like the awesome one that comes with their xenos inquisitor. I bet some people would love servo skulls like the winged and fanged ones on the BA codex and i once saw a great converted stealer skull servo skull, things like that would be cool.

I'm loving all the calls for stealer cults! Yes yes yes!

Multi-part broodlords based off the Spacehulk design so we can have a variety of poses (and biomorphs even old ones which now would be purely decorative) in one army easily.

Civilians would be great, you could do them for all races, even Tyranids as after all in a protracted invasion/siege they too need supply lines and a food-carrying termagant like some kind of honey-pot ant would be cool. Magos Biologis, imperial governer etc.

Bases for the jungle trees that then sit into a large area piece like the removable woods tress and their base to make the jungle trees way easier to use in game.

Xenos and deathworld plants. Small pieces of themed terrain for each army.

Planetstrike stuff for the other races would be great. And one option for a Tyranid one could be a conversion set of parts to put a living hive and bio-weapons into a standard imperial bastion. Of course a full hive would also be awesome.

I'd love some Tyranid barricades, either walls of carapace grown out of the ground or maybe mounds of enemy and Tyranid dead piled up and glued together with Tyranid spittle.

Some of the more popular and the army-specific planetstrike and city fight strategems could do with some model pieces (chunks of bio-ship would be brilliant).

Xenos and other special pieces for Planetary Empires please! So i can have my digestion pools spore chimneys and especially the capilary towers stretching into space for the hive fleet to use as a slurpee straw on the nice big map. some campain rules for a planet slowly being tyrannoformed during the campaign would be very cool.

Oh and some Tyranid BFG ships based off the very old artworks found in Advanced Space Crusade etc, the cool ammonite-ships which so well match the modern Tyranid design aesthetic of carapace plates and tentacle maws and just look way better than the metal BFG tyranids.

All armies especially Xenos wounded, casualties, skulls, trophies and base decoration pieces.

Tyranids for Aeronautica Imperialis.

The Dominatrix, which needn't be that big, after all they shrunk the hierodule bio-titan down heaps so the Dominatrix could be smaller as long as it's bigger than a Tervigon.

Every Tyranid thing from the codex GW doesn't have already in the pipeline. (the parasite of Mortrex could combine nicely with imperial guard casualties and some separate rippers!)

Some cool basic/iconic troops of each army in Inquisitor scale so every army has an iconic inquisitor-scale figure.

Rogue Trader era animals and nasties still in background without minis like Grox, Enslavers, Psychnenuin, Gyrinx etc and maybe even some long forgotten ones.

Heresy era Ahriman.

Emperors Scythes and Lamentors Tyrannic War Veterans.

Grievously wounded and defeated Marneus Calgar decorative base for any GW Swarmlord and a Forgeworld Swarmlord if GW don't have one in the works.

Yeah but how large is rather large, bigger than a hierophant or between it and a heirodule? The epic one was smaller than a hierophant and shorter than a warhound.

And surely something with firepower closee to a heirophant and even better reproduction than a tervigon would be popular!

Especially if the 'enthroned' critter on the back is well sculpted.

"The Dominatrix is a colossal creature of the Tyranid swarm. It is a fearsome opponent, for its sheer mass and panopoly of bio-weaponry dwarf that of an Imperial super-heavy tank." Page 21, 5th edition Tyranid codex.

Which puts it at bigger than a Hierodule, probably smaller (but far more bulky) than a Hierophant. As for the enthroned Hive Tyrant, the same entry describes the Dominatrix as its own creature, so I wouldn't expect to have it ridden by a Tyrant if FW ever did one.

The throne-beast never looked like a tyrant. Closer to a warrior or the last two zoanthrope designs if anything crossed with the space jockey from the first alien film. Most Tyranids are symbiotically merged creatures, termagants and fleshborer-gun-beasts and fleshborer-beetle ammo being a classic example.

The classic epic dominatrix (for any who don't know) was a big beast with a big symbiotic cannon and a symbiotic 'throne' like a crescent pointing skyward with the scrawny huge-headed thing merged into it and two membrane back-banner-looking things of who knows what kind of function.

Forgeworld's heirophant and harridan had a lot of redesign but still kept a number of traits from the originals. So we may still see the symbiotic leader component if they make one.

The most significant change is that the Dominatrix is also a breeder now whereas in the past they were just speculated to be related to the breeding ship-bound norn queens. So i expect it'd probably have the same kind of birthing design as the Tervigon added.

How about a new Realm of Battle table, but instead of a battlefield we'll get a Cityfight board, or the interior of a Space Hulk/ Space Ship.

Generic navy crew like those shown in the illustrations from Space Fleet,
with shotguns, power billhooks, welding equipment and a bosun thrown in.
Just something to crew my Arvus Lighters.
(looking somewhat like those (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Images/Product/AlternativeFW/xlarge/Crewalt4.jpg), but please 10 in a bag with some variants)

Or at least one without random patches of skulls. :p

Cool but impractical:

40K Scale Ordinatus (should be bigger than a Manta, right?)
Stormbird
Warlord Titan


Doable:

Genestealer cult conversion sets (not just human, but like Tim H's trial rules, "infestations" for Tau, Eldar and more).
AdMech
More Eldar Aspect Warriors
Eldar Corsairs (neither craftworld nor DE)
Eldar Exodites (Dino-riders! Perhaps saddled lizards that have separate buyable riders so they can also be used for WFB/Lizardmen as well?)
More "official" Daemon engines like an official Plague Tower, Tower of Skulls, Cannon of Khorne, Doom Mortar, Cauldron of Blood etc.
STORMHAMMER. Seriously, why did this epic vehicle drop off the face of the earth?
Some stuff we havn't seen from BFG - Nicassar, Demiurg and other "exotic' xenos.
Rogue Traders and retinues.

There is an Eldar Corsair list in IA11 according to the last FW newsletter..... if you're lucky this means models are on the way.

I know. I owned one. However, the design does not fit with the new fluff for Tyranids - don't forget, this was back when Tyanids held their weapons like humans, and had 'bio-tanks' that moved like slugs. The new aesthetic differs greatly, and I'd expect the enthroned creature to simply removed. It just doesn't make sense with the new Tyranid design, its something from the old design when they were still working off the ideas that gave us Zoats.

Forgeworld, while they did redesigns on everything (they redesigned the Trygon and Hierodule as well as the Hierophant and Harridan), those redesigns fit the new Tyranid design that came about with 3rd edition 40k. I'd expect a Dominatrix to undergo that same redesign ideas. The symbiotic leader wouldn't be needed, as the Dominatrix is that leader.

While i and others might be wanting more xenos terrain Forgeworld appears to be giving us less. I noticed the Tyranid terrain is all marked out of stock so asked them if this was temporary. They said in a reply email:


Hi,

Thank you for your email. The Tyranid scenery is no longer in stock, and it is very unlikely to be returning.

Thanks,

Simon Kirkham

Forge World



I'm so glad i have one of each already but I wanted more nests and capillary towers.

Sure this could suggest that we'll get some plastic tyranid terrain straight from GW but i doubt it.

Sounds more like the molds wore out and they just aren't gonna replace them. Which may not be good for all of us wanting more xenos stuff.
