Why Forge World rocks

As some of you may have seen from Kyle's blog post I went a bit nuts ordering some Forge World stuff this week. It was prompted by a good friend of mine shipping me out the new Salamander Dreadnought. I went crazy and ordered all of the variants of power armor except Mark 6 ......which actually comes in the tactical squad box. I also ordered another Land Raider me this is the most bad ass Land Raider in the Imperium. Along with these items I ordered various upgrade kits and transfer sheets.

Now most of the items I purchased from Forge World are just accessories for Space Marines. They enable me to customize the look of my Marines even more. The one description that stuck with me was what Graham McNeil said about Space Marines after he wrote the 4th Edition codex.......that each Space Marine was like a knight, not just some sci fi dude in generic armor. I have really taken this to heart when I assemble my marines.

I know Forge World is not easily accessible and can be rather pricey, and don't take this post to mean that if you don't have Forge World stuff that you and your hobby suck. I just want to shed some light on why I love the crap out of it. If any of you have questions about the products please feel free to ask.



  1. I've bee gradually adding up some of the older mk's of FW armor for a carcharodon Astra (space sharks) army. Their Scavenger nature will make for plenty of odd ball armor combos.

    Still trying to find some "Alt" or old mk Termy parts...

    Any suggestions?

  2. Can I get some reasons you think the LR Achilles is so badass? I'm kind of on the fence about it. As an Imperial Fist player and someone who LOVES the thunderfire cannon, it seems right up my alley.
    But with Weapon types of opposing range/purpose and a lowered transport capacity, I'm not sure how I'd use one.
    I want to like it, just not sure how I'd use it.

  3. I love the look of the Achillies but how does it play? I would personally love to see a mid-class armoured version on a Rhino- maybe it could even called a Priest!

    As for FW, I think that they as a whole provide an extra service for gamers, the ability to get smaller parts to personalize our toys. If you think about it, the concept is no different then way a company like Harley Davidson does. Here is the stock model or you can buy extra parts to make your bike yours!
