Following on from yesterday’s exclusive release of the Orx Marauder picture, here’s the Forge Father Hero!
Mantic have really gone to town on this guy… I love the multi-barrelled pistols and the armour… great stuff guys!
The sculpt really does capture the spirit of the original concept. Something GW in my opinion is struggling with most of the time.
This one is much better than the first one they revealed. As @netdiver said, they really hit the nail on transforming the concept to the sculpts. Brilliant work.
Truly EPIC…..I am sold. I’ve been waiting for good Squat models for over a decade now. I will be buying one of those army’s for sure. Great job Mantic.
Very cool….I echo the humungus…I am sold on this line now.
Like these a lot! I wasn’t planning to, but I might even pick some space Dwarfs up!
Another impressive sculpt – look forward to the production unboxing
Wow ! Now, this I like…
may need to grab one of these just to paint up
i want one please
A nice looking mini, everyone loves a space Dwarf!
You can never have too many cigar chomping heroes in my book.
Time to paint some more dwarves….. IN SPAAAAAAAAACE!!!
First point I like, It has no match in the 40K world. That was one of my biggest fears, that all we will get is 40K light, but no, you cut your own path. Good for you, you get my respect.
Second point, it is almost spot on with the picture, spooky now that I think about it.
Being it is a hero I take it that this one will have greater detail as most companies in this field do that. Looking forward to the pics of the plastic cast dudes.
Again I think he looks impressive – and I just love those pistols
Okay NOW I’m liking it. That one has some great character to it.
Very impressive, he just needs an epic a stein.
I can’t stop staring at it. Its just. So. Beautiful. Must. Paint.
Well from seing Kings of War I was worried about the Forge Fathers looking crap, but these are just stunning, really looking foward collecting these guys
The sculpt looks amazing! So close to the concept art as others above have said. I had high expectation for the forge fathers which dipped after the last “beak” pic was released, but that mini is just awesome!! I WANT!
