Lord Commander Eidolon
Again wonderful sculpts. These are still work in progress's with the green stuff still visible on some of the models. There is great character to these models and they have really made the most of the 32mm bases, especially on the chaps who are kneeling down.
So I don't think that this model has any rules yet (please correct me if I'm wrong). Very rouge trader era and very static. I dislike the staticness that this sculpt has, he looks very flat. The knew automata look good, taking a lot of design ques from the Scyllax. I think these guys would make a great addition to a mechanicum force, and the enginseer would make quite a cool Magos
So probably the largest ground transport that Forge World has done, and it looks gorgeous. With a fully detailed interior the whole model has some real character. Keeping with some of the aesthetics that other legion vehicles have it still looks very different to them mainly due to it's height. It really does look futuristic, almost something out the generic sci-fi which a lot of the imperial vehicles do not.
One thing that I really liked was the plan to put hole for magnets on the front doors. There are two reasons that I really like this. 1) it is practical, Forge World have made it easy to hold the large door closed if you so wish. 2) it shows that Forge World know and accept that we as hobbyists are not purists when it comes to using other companies equipment (also shown in the master class books) and that they are actively making our lives easier.
This thing is going to cost you an arm and a leg I reckon and should be out near Christmas, or so I was informed.
Any way that's my small summary of what caught my eye on the day. Go check out Battle Bunnies for a full coverage of the event.
What do you think of all the new bits and pieces and let me know what your favorite kit that has come out of the weekend. Check back on Thursday for a some tactics talk.
