The vehicle reminds me in shape a bit of the big IG moving fortress (cannot remember its name) from Epic (1st or 2nd Ed.).

I remember it now: The Leviathan: http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Leviathan

Even that has single tracks...  ::)

I think the whole image of the 40k universe has been going in a strange direction over the last few years.
I fear for where it will end up, as I used to see a use for their kits (conversions, of course) but not their latest offerings.

I blame 3D modelling for these latest "meh" kits from GW. I think that the designers aren't able to visualize the vehicles properly when making them. Compared to what FW is putting out these look like rubbish.

I agree.

I used to see Forgeworld as a 'Rich Boys' toyshop.
Great stuff but too pricey for me.

Now it is starting to look pretty good value when you compare their quality and price to what the other part of GW offer.

That vehicle is awful Those weird track stilts just look bad.

I agree that GW stuff seems to be getting more cartoony as time goes on.

Disappointed with the guard to. The karskin were better. Are those metal models still avalable? pretty sure you could get 10 of them for the price of these 5 plastics.

While searching for some videos about their new Imperial Knights mechs, I came across some official GW tutorials on painting them:

And I have to say that I was impressed. For someone who already knows how to paint, they don't bring anything new to the table, but for someone who's starting on the hobby it's really helpful. And the best part...it's free!  ;D

I think, but it's hard to see from the teeny little pictures, that those "pidgin-latin-stormtroopers", may not be all that bad. If only as parts for Inq28 or Necromunda conversions.

But I just can't figure out that combat-winnebago... It looks like something out of an 80's cartoon.

If only they'd actually made that. Then I'd buy it.

That model is a lot more complex than I thought it would be.
