    I love that they actually did the leather masks for them, even if it isn’t really possible to get the kind of detail they’re described as having at this scale.

      Yeah, same. I mean, it is silly to have leather masks, shields and axes but hey, who cares? It’s cool!

    The bolt pistols look strange though – like the muzzle end is upside-down. It looks like the front sight is on the bottom and the guide rod (gas blowback tube?) is on the top. The latter only matters because it is below the barrel for all other bolt weapons in the 30k/40k universe, but why is the front sight below the barrel?

      Good catch, I didn’t notice that. Maybe just to make them look unique?

        They are actually upside down. It was a miscast that forgeworld announced they would be fixing a couple weeks ago.

          Ah, nice! Thanks for the answer.

            Actually, I take it back. Forgeworld facebook said it was designed that way on purpose, previous answers ‘sent’ by them to people asking the question was incorrect/faked. Apparently the underslung sighting is supposed to be a red-dot? Egg on my face for believing something on the interweb.

            Well, if it was intentional, I disagree with the design choice. If the idea was to make it look like some sort of laser sight, they should have not made it look like a front sight attached to the bottom on the pistol – the should have made it a small tube below the barrel or near the grip. That would make it look like a laser sight rather than an upside-down muzzle. After all, that seems to be what thw current (old) sororitas models have on their bolters – standard iron sights on top, then a laser to the left, attached to the barrel shroud (it isn’t a scope, because there is no aperture on the eye side).

      Yes, it is certainly upside down. There are comparisons between those bolt pistols and a Phobos-pattern bolter and it’s very, very obvious. It was likely someone who didn’t know the aesthetic well (and though they could tweak it) or an accident (copied and pasted wrong in CAD), but Forgeworld came out after some backlash and said it was intentional and that it’s an aiming sight, or something like that. Others who said they like the design said its a bayonet lug or otherwise just liked the new look. The problem is that it’s not a new look: at an upside down Phobos-pattern. Phobos-pattern bolters are what Mk III Space Marines are armed with, and these upgrade sprues are designed to go with the Mk III kits from the Prospero Burns boxed set. So, again, it’s clear it was a design or execution oversight, and FW is NLT Doug anything about it. As such, I won’t be buying he ones with the upside down pistols. Maybe the other sprue with the axes and shields, but I’m not especially motivated to now as I’d been waiting on these kits to finish my 30k Space Wolves and this happens… Oh well – #firstworldproblems
