WhoLock

February 22nd, 2015

I missed this when it first came to the fore.

Wholock: in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor appeared to meet in a video seamlessly cut together from the shows.

This is how some of the VFX were done.

New Forge World Terrain Gun Emplacement

February 13th, 2015

Also shown off at the Horus Heresy event were some new Forge World Terrain Tiles. This is a Gun Emplacement complete with weapon, ready to be attacked by Orks or Nids.

As you can see this has a big turret and a big gun, almost naval in appearance.

Space Marine Sokar Pattern Stormbird

February 10th, 2015

The Stormbird Gunship is an armoured versatile craft that combines the role of dropship, armoured transport and strike craft.

This is from an old White Dwarf and shows how Games Workshop back then thought the Stormbird looked like.

Back in 2011 I posted one gamer’s interpretation of that pencil drawing of a Stormbird. This was a huge model.

Over the weekend Forge World showed pictures at the Horus Heresy event of their version of the Stormbird.

Looking very similar to the Thunderhawk, that has been out for years, however as you can see it has a much larger hull, big enough to carry a whole Rhino. There are extra engines and looks like bigger wings.

Personally I would have preferred to see soemthing more akin to the original concept of the Stormbird rather than something less like the Thunderhawk.

Mechanicum Ordinatus

It has been an Epic scale model for decades now, but at the recent Horus Heresy event in Nottingham, Forge World announced that they would be releasing a 40K scale version.

It looks like a huge model, not that has stopped Forge World in the past from making large models.

Space Marine Xiphon Pattern Interceptor

Space Marine Xiphon Pattern Interceptor

Though it reminds me of many of the Imperial Navy aircraft, I actually think this is a good thing, as a result this Space Marine aircraft looks much better than many of the Space Marine flying craft we have seen before.

I did think when I first saw the photograph that it was an Imperial Navy craft, then I noticed it was blue and had the Ultramarines’ iconography on it.

Quite like it.
