    Anyone have a release date for Imperial Armour V. 5?

    I've got a box full of Korps, but I'm not touching them until I see just what the DK lists are going to look like...

    obviously, my impatience grows ever greater. :cries:

    So, is there ANY word on when we can expect our mass of info on the Korps?

    edit: bugger! just saw the post by Axel re: the Korps, perhaps a mod could move this over?

    Right, let's see:

    Wants:
    Fantasy stuff from FW
    Less Guard from FW

    Dreams:
    Fantasy stuff from FW
    Less Guard stuff from FW

    I think that sums it up quite nicely don;t you?

    Re: FWs Death Korps of Krieg line

    Seeing as that Forge World was once Imperial Armour, set up to do tank bits for the Guard in resin, I think it's quite reasonable.
    Pride is not a sin. Hubris is not a failing. The galaxy is not a mere collection of stars, it is our birthright! For too long have men looked up the infinite expanses of darkness before them and looked back inward, seeking solance in their huddled, weak soulfires. I see the black depths before me and all I can see is an eternity of war and conquest in the Emperor's name.

    not particularly, as it's a thread about the DKoK...

    One thing I'd love to see (please file under DREAM) is a termite.
    It'd be the only way I'd like to deep strike any DK models.

    Re: FWs Death Korps of Krieg line

    Minister: But it isn;t Imperial Armour anymore. I see no reason why it shoouldn't sculpt more fantasy. It's not as if it's exclusiuvley 40k, they do have the rhunox riders and various other fantasy stuff.

    and this is going off-topic for the DKoK, so I'll shut up now.

    Well, lets simply assume that we know that the majority here is unhappy with the heavy focus that FW puts on 40k guards and marines. I would love some WFB pikemen from them myself. This is, however, the DKoK threat, so I would prefer if addons concentrate on them, or at least Guards and their direct adversaries.

    The last rumour I heard about IA5 was Games Day, but somehow when the rumours for AI put it way back it appeared shortly after. I hope for it in April (I already spend my whole March budget).

    Erm, not it wasnt. Forgeworld was *always* forgeworld. Its first ever releases were warhammer earthworks, a heinrich kemmler statue, razorwire, the big marine statue and I *think* the Abaddon the Despoiler statue. Forgeworld started off making terrain bits, busts, statues and that type of thing. It took forgeworld a while before they started producing conversion kits and their own models.

    Its first ever release was the Conqueror tank turret.

    And a month or two after that the Vanquisher, yes. I believe it was first presented in the Troll supliment to White Dwarf.

    On the Krieg front, commissars would be my first choice, as there's actually half a hope of me getting such a thing. A command tank upgrade sprue (extra bits to add rather than a special hull) would be nice as well.

    Re: FWs Death Korps of Krieg line

    Can I add extras for the Chimera hull to the wants list?

    I know FW have stated that the DKOK don't use Chimeras but they have said they use Basilisks (and I would assume Hellhounds considering how much they see to enjoy big flamers) so a few extras wouldn't be out of place.

    Arrow Re: FWs Death Korps of Krieg line

    I don't play guard but I still really like how FW fleshes them out.

    The only other thing I could think of from them that I'd like to see is FW Warpspiders, Wraithguard, Shining Spear, Guardian rider, Warlock and Farseer jetbike conversion kits, and either a figure or preferably a large statue of the Autarch on the cover of Codex: Eldar.

    Re: FWs Death Korps of Krieg line

    DKoK are NOT nazi ripoffs. The range is based off of the general look of WWI troopers.
    Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    If FW puts out the stuff you've listeds under needs, I'll buy an army's worth. I really like the way they look.

    IA5 is supposed to have the DKoK rules in it, and is due out sometime this year according to the rumor mill.

    The only thing remotley resembling WW2 German soldiers is the basic helmet shape, which also happens to be exactly the same thing from WW1. The helmet crest is based of the French WW1 helmets, and the uniforms as a whole are an amalgamation of WW1 uniforms.

    They are in no way "Nazi" ripoffs.

    The Soviets are already at the Mailorder. Only some 20 different poses, but at least they around for more then a decade. Note that the Valhallans have a genetical mutation that lets their hands look unnaturally large - things like that are bound to happen if you spread humanity unto a million worlds.
