Forgeworld Storm Eagle

This thing is amazing.

What a gorgeous model!

This story broke yesterday, but we wanted to post it up here as well in case anyone missed it. What an absolutely stunning model, I really like this and we may have to get one for the shop in the very near future.

    Hopefully this will finally break the NIBY status of Forgeworld models. Face it – Forgeworld models may be used in a regular game of 40k **without opponents permission**. It has been that way since IA3/4 and the latest update simply confirms that – you *should* inform your opponent you are going to be using them but anything marked “Warhammer 40k” can be used in a regular game.

    I’m not sure how much clearer they could have written it. Hopefully that will be even more clearly codified in 6th Edition.

    Games Workshop has been moving this direction for the past 5-6 years because they know that only bringing out new units for Codexes every 6-8 years is bad for their revenue stream. By using IA and Forgeworld to bring out new stuff for armies they can bring in new revenues from older codexes without having to republish them from scratch.

    A pre-emptive anti-rant for all you Forgeworld haters: Get off the old “permission only” horse. Its dead and gone. You killed it by flogging it too long and too hard.

      I’m a proponent of using FW in regular play, but the book still is pretty ambiguous on if they can just be used, and their is a lot of push back from the community, at least in the tournament scene.

      I would love to seem them become regular parts of the game, and hopefully in time they do. Repeated exposure will help with that, for sure.
