Andy takes a look at the cracking Forge father Hero from Mantic Games… this cigar-chomping pistoleer looks more than ready to gun down a few Orx…
Wadda ya say bub?
looks even better in the restic.
Thats a very, very nice model.
It looked great in the pics released a couple of weeks ago, but I think it looks even more impressive in the video.
I have tended to avoid heroes playing warpath, but in the other video it says all costs have been tweaked , so maybe in the final release he’ll be more viable than the tanky thing.
I’d certainly find a use for that model whatever way the rules go to be honest.
This looks brilliant, espacially in restic, thought it was going to be in metal?
I hope the casting process is king to this mini.
Not bad at all…I like it
This does look a lot nicer than the previous pics really want to get people playing this as Mantic are doing a great job!
Fantastic model that. Great detail and some wonderful character too him. Also looks like he should be a joy to paint! Will have to seriously get my hands on this guy.
nice model wanna paint one
If the second pistol is an option does the kit come with an empty hand in case you don’t take the upgrade?
Lovely looking mini – is it a production cast?
An absolute astounding miniature. Cant wait to have a bunch of them on my one in handy.
Please Andy send it to me. I will paint it well and send it back to you for the BoW team. This is serious.
That looks like a very nice space stunty
i alwways take heros in both warpath and KOW. the inspiring rule is worth the points alone for that one time your opponent rolls snake eyes with the second roll. they also add some character and story to the army, which means a lot to me.
Great looking model. I wasn’t sure about the Forge Fathers until I started seeing the actual models. This one basically sold me. But like kane said in a previous post, I hope the kit comes with another hand to hold the hammer.
Wow ! I’m very impressed ! And I’ve always loved dwarves, too…
woah, Andy did you put your hands in the toaster? hope your okay!
Great model BTW
Got to give it to them. They managed to make it look sci-fi and still tie in a bit of the dwarf just equal enough that it works.
Looks like it has some sharp details so I’m expecting a lot from the marauders. The new Mantic round bases are a bit of a disappointment. I’d prefer the bases have a hollow bottom, helps balancing them on terrain quite a lot. With fantasy armies this wasn’t that much of a problem as you’d probably used them with movement trays anyway. Ah well, it’s just a minor thing
@Netdiver Bit of a hassle and extra expense, but you could cut the disc off the feet and pin the model to your base of choice.
Mantics models always look better in the round and video clips show them off well, more so than stills imho
Thats rather nice looking sculpt. I kinda like from this little guy.
