Well here it is


Out and About
This Saturday, June 11th, Forge World will be at Warhammer World in Nottingham for the Cry Havoc! Hobby Day. Of course Forge World is going to be joining in with Operation Armoured Assault, the UK wide world record attempt for the most tanks used in a linked battle. We will have a range of heavily armed and armoured machineries of destruction available to ‘test-drive’ on the day so you can decide which tank or weapon best suits your needs before buying it! A huge tank-tastic day like Saturday wouldn’t be complete without the biggest, baddest tank of all would it? As long as there isn’t a huge blizzard or it doesn’t tip it down with rain all day we will have our unique 1/6th scale radio controlled Baneblade rumbling around outside. If you haven’t seen Forge World’s biggest ever model then this is your chance to see and hear our monster in action. If you can’t make it to Nottingham this weekend then we hope that you can catch up with us at some of the other shows and events we’re attending this summer. Without going into too much detail and clogging up the newsletter I do have a list of where we will be over the next month or so and we have just updated the Forge World Events page where you can click on the event you are most interested in for details. July is when I get busy travelling again as we have Conflict! London on the 10th and then the truly massive War and Peace show down in Kent from the 20th through to the 24th! (Five days camping in a field! Help!!) A few days later I pop over to the US for Games Day Chicago on the 30th. I do get a little bit of a break as our annual trip to Cologne for Games Day Germany isn’t until August 28th. If anyone would like to place a reservation order for collection at any of these events, either give one of our guys a call on the phone or drop us an email titled ‘Forge World Reservation’ with your name, the event you want to collect your order at and the list of what you want us to pack up especially for you. We’ll confirm all the details with you as we get closer to each date and make sure your order is sitting waiting for you.

The Thunderlord Cometh!
In the last issue of the Newsletter I talked a little about this bad boy and I’m glad to say he’s all done and ready to go on sale. Unlike the previous two Ogre Rhinox Cavalry Daniel made, the Thunderlord does not use any plastic components, instead it is a complete resin kit and a good bit larger as you might notice. The size of this model really is quite something; I’m writing this with the Thunderlord model sitting next to my Snotling Pumpwagon and Gobbo 3 Wolf Chariot and today is as close as they are ever going to get if I have anything to say about it. The complete Thunderlord is about 120mm/5 inches tall and that isn’t a cavalry base he’s standing on, it’s a chariot base! I think perhaps my favourite part of this model is the little Gnoblar wearing a fake peg-leg to imitate his boss. I am beginning to think a little bit about adding some super-heavy cavalry to my Orc and Goblin army now, hmm…. If like me you are tempted to add one of these huge monsters to your collection it is available to pre-order now for release from Monday July 4th.

Terminators Decorated for Valour
Space Marine Terminators are perhaps the most fearless and valiant warriors defending the Imperium and to shield Humanity from the alien and the heretic they are given only the best weapons and armour that their Chapter can provide. To help make your squads of new plastic Space Marine Terminators become a focal point of your army and the envy of your peers, Forge World are pleased to release the next two sets of Terminator Shoulder Pads with a pack for the Raptors Space Marine Chapter and another that can be used for both the Imperial Fists and the Crimson Fists Chapters. Both the Fists and Raptors Terminator Shoulder Pads are available to pre-order now for release from Monday July 20th.

Fresh from the Painting Table
A few days ago we had another of our larger new models returned after being painted. To be completely honest this is the second time that Fil brought our huge Chaos Dragon back to us because he wasn’t 100% satisfied with the work and knew he could do better! I think Fil has done an amazing job with this model as it is just so enormous and positively dripping with fine detail crying out for careful painting. Well done mate.

New Downloadable Catalogue Supplement
You know, when we publish a catalogue it seems to be out of date almost immediately because the guys downstairs make more new models! Well we’re halfway through the year and we have quite a number of models that aren’t in our catalogue. Our solution is to make supplement sheets that we can keep changing as new models are released and send these out with each catalogue. But it is still possible that quite a number of you don’t have one of our most up to date supplements and rather than send out thousands of envelopes all over the world we thought it would be easier to let you download it as a .pdf file. The file isn’t too large, a little bit over 1meg, but has enough resolution if you want to print a few copies off. I hope you all do have a copy of our 2005 catalogue by now? If not please just send us an email with your name and postal address to ForgeWorldCatReq@games-workshop.co.uk and we shall send one to you right away.

I was kinda impressed by the Rhinox cavalry, until I saw them compared to other models and realised that they are actually quite small.

Dragon is... freaky. Not sure what else to say about it.

Could you take a plain pic of that, it's actually quite hard to tell from that veiw as the riders aren't the same size, so scale is difficult to judge.

And what is that new rhinox cavalry model that looks bigger and better armored?

athamas

its basicly the unit champion... unless you are refering to avian's pic, which might be home grown,

I was talking about Avian's pic. I saw it recently in golden demons results. Looks cool!

I'll see if I can't get a side shot. As it is, the models are scaled to have the same base size.

THIS (http://gamesday.us.games-workshop.com/GamesDay2005/Baltimore_2005/Coverage/Golden_Demon/staff3_page.htm) is what I'm referring to. What is it :confused:

Avian

It's a conversion based on a fluff piece in the Ogre book using (not very original) the Juggernaut of Khorne enlarged with some green stuff.

???

The one on the left in that picture is a Forgeworld model, the one on the right is a conversion I've made.
