Default News on New models from Forgeworld!

Quote:
Daren Parr-wood has been going Tau-tastic since finishing off the huge Imperial
Bombard the other week. He is working on several new conversions for Tau
Battlesuits. So far I have seen new heads, arms, weapons and legs lurking on his
desk. With these conversion kits, the Tau Battlesuit becomes far more posable
and dynamic.
Daren has also just finished the master models for the Epic 40,000 versions of
the Tau Piranha and Tetra. These are lovely little models with every last bit of
the detail you have come to expect from Forge World Epic models.

Not wanting to be left out, Will Hayes is working on a new variant of the Tau
Tigershark. It is early days yet, but I do know that this version loses the
Drone carrying ability of the original and replaces it with what appears to be
two twin-linked Railguns poking out the front!
Woot! Battlesuit Conversion kits!

That will be awesome.
Probably more posable arms, so instead of them being bent at a 90 degree angle, the arms could be fully extended.

Who knows?
Thanks [ maCe ] for posting that.

Happy Holidays everyone,
Aaron

I'm wondering if one of the options is the legs on the Crisis suits from the Orca. Certainly wouldn't be the only option, but I hope there is more than a few new weapons. What new weapons would there be? Rail rifles seem inferior to a plasma rifle as a Crisis Suit loadout. I really look forward to the pictures.

Nevertheless, I'm very pleased FW keeps making Tau stuff, especially non-heavy support options.

cheers

Woot?... someones abit over excited... *;D

Sounds good though as posing battlesuits is a real pain, it took me ages to get my commander how i wanted him, and then i had to cut it to pieces and put it together again to make it work... why couldnt forgeworld of made this ages ago... woulda saved me the hassle... but o well... good news i spose...
