    Why is the rogue idol listed as new?
    That dropship loooks like a Tau ship, the cockpit, the engine pods... the fact I painted my Tau gold doesn't help

    A fairly quiet event. Big news is the return of Necromunda.

    Eschers (yay) and Goliaths in the starter set. From a chat to Tony C not Aprbites yet concentrating on the gangs, all the gangs are back Plastic Escher/Goliaths very nice sculpts. GW has proven with harlies, Sis of Silence and now the Escher they can plastic sculpt and produce excellent delicate female forms - where are my SoB's! I digress, from what Tony was saying they are concentrating on the gangs firstly before getting round to any form of Law and Order, no not a 'no' for Arbites but a 'not yet' . Great sculpts, displayed with nice new plated bases (or they might be the GW sector mechnicus bases not 100% certain) mentioned the game would play as classic Necro (I expect Shadow War type updates) but also mentioned a 'board game' play mode sounding quite like Burning of Prospero play.

    On display for 40k/HH Raider & Rhino doors for BA/DA and Iron Warriors. very nice works, not a fan of the old style BA icon myself (and my main SM army is BA) but these doors really are good. IW (my CSM force) were very nice, might get some of the round door for my mk1 Rhinos in my IW CSM force.

    A few snippets. Necromunda, will be serviced like Blood bowl, core game, plastic expansions and resin accessory upgrades. all sounds good to me.

    BFG - Straight form Tony C, yes FW will be tackling BFG but not yet with the current work load, launch of Necromunda imminent and support on going for Blood Bowl (no sign of Titanicus at the open day to my knowledge) its not due anytime soon but is definitely being given the FW 'polish'.

    Talk online is that GW stopped FW from showcasing most upcoming projects as they want to draw people to the community and tv channels. You hear anything similar ?

    It's a long shot, but as there anything bloodbowl related for dark elves?
