Not a bad day, pale in comparison to something like the FW Open Day but considering it was free it was worth going along.
As always FW were the highlight, though seeing the guys who put together the WHW gaming tables and exhibition having a stand was nice as you could chat to them about the boards/exhibits and see some WIP pictures of the exhibition.
Anyway, onto new stuff from Forge World. Pics are large (and many).
Corax & The Raven Guard.
Alpha Legion Headhunters:
I asked Tony Cottrell about this beast, current expectation - but in no way concrete and may change - is that this will be out in April for a ball park figure of £300.
Warlord Weapons -
Power Fist (with built in Vulcan Mega Bolter):
AM Ordinatus, with new weapon.
Leviathan Dreadnought - New Weapon:
Updated Legion Book & New Crusade Imperialis book collecting Solar, Militia and Knight lists, only just gone to printers so don't expect them any time soon.
Forge World have been reorganised to some extent with Andy Hoare now head of the Specialist Games area, the first on the workbench is Blood Bowl. Expect late this year with plastic Human and Orc teams in the box with more teams in either plastic or resin to follow. The plan is FW will design the models with Citadel producing them in plastic. Whether the additional teams happen in plastic or resin (if at all) will probably depend on how well the box set does.
While they hope to cover all the old games nothing is set in stone and there is no plan currently laid out. So while they may hope to redo Epic (or some kind) in may not happen, or if it does it may be far off and come back in a different way.
Concept work by Mark Bedford (I did ask before I took pictures):

That is all for pictures from me.
I picked up the new Heresy Masterclass book, if you have any questions of the contents of that feel free to ask.
