Right,

We've needed a new version of this thread for a little bit. The preview image of another Forgeworld Supa-Heavy Tank has really kicked this off.

I'll try to make sure any Rumoured images are stored in this initial post:

Upcoming Forgeworld Releases:
Forgeworld is in the process of developing a yet-to-be subtitled Imperial Armour Volume 8 that is rumoured to be released in Q1 of 2010. No further confirmation on the accuracy of Q1. Other rumours indicate later in the year.

Many of the vehicle kits and figures that will be part of this book have already been released and are available for purchase through Forgeworld found here:
http://www.forgeworl...RE_ORKS_21.html

A Brief summary of what has already been released as part of the IA8 project:
Nob Warbikes (Unit of 3)
Warboss on Warbike
Halftrakk
Decal Sheet
Trukk with Enclosed Cab
Battlewagon with Supa-Kannon
Gretchin Crew (11 models of 12 gretchin)
Big Trakk
Supa-Kannon*
Kill-kannon*
Big Zappa*
Big Lobba*
Flakk Gun*
Grot Sponsons
Mega-Dred plus 2 interchangeable weapon options (Kill Kannon & Rippa Klaw Arm)
Kill Krusha Supa-Heavy Tank
Mek Boss Buzzgob

Here's what appears to be a new Forgeworld Ork Supa-Heavy Tank based off of the Kil Krusha Chassis:

I'll have to dig out the links to some of those pictures. I'll get them up as soon as I can. I've now replaced the picture of the FW tank with another one I found that was a bit clearer. I love all the wires and cables hanging out of this thing. This one will definitely be a joy to paint :)

Reminds of that strange Swiss tank designed to fight in mountians. This one;

http://upload.wikime...5/51/S-tank.jpg

its a solid design though. Almost makes too much logical sense to be really orky (no shot traps, looks streamlined and efficient with a compact design and good protection straight on. A genius mek perhaps?)

Good work, Aga. There are persistent rumours of a plastic Warbuggy kit later in the year, and some of the more reliable sources seem to be confirming it's coming. The plastic Killer Kan is based on a confirmed release of 2 plastic Ork kits in March (one of which is definitely the Deff Dred), but it's not 100% confirmed. I wouldn't bother with the CAD images etc. I think things have probably moved on since they appeared. I really like that new FW model! It feels as though the FW sculptors are gaining confidence with the Orky 'look'. I agree that the gun could have been more interesting, and the positioning of the secondary weapons is a bit silly (especially the skorcha).

I agree with Oddballz over the positioning of the secondary weaponz. I could imagine that the lower armoured flankz would be suitable for Grot Sponsonz, but I would have prefered to have seen the secondary weapons at this level. However, it definitely lookz dead 'ard.

This is awesome! However, could someone get the original photograph from the thread this was clipped from up on this thread? Whilst there was this Orky monstrosity on the left of the image rather dominating it, there was also what looked like a 6 wheeled attack vehicle, similar to a stretched buggy, on the right, which had been partially cut in half by the photo

My sources tell me that the KK kit is gonna be a kit of 3 kans, but then that is based on the instruction manual, so it might just be a kit that has 3 varients to it you get to play with. I personally don't mind either way, as a kit with lots of options means lots of parts to recycle for other toys...

I suppose I'll have to see this tank in the flesh. I'm not particularly impressed as I find the tank a bit boring. Nothing we haven't seen here on the waaagh a million times. The fine detailing is really exceptional but the whole thing screams box with phallus to me.

heres my thought on this :D
as i hate GWs marketing policy to release stuff you wont use so you have to buy other kits
i think it shurely is possible that the package contains 1+ cans
how about two so you have at least to buy three packs to get 2 full squads :D

but naaah imho it will contain 3 models 4 weapon optionsand cost about 40 :biggrin

The six-wheeled attack vehicle is the new Elysian Venator that will be part of the same release. Since technically it's a Imperial vehicle, it's not part of this thread, but you can find it here:

I have to agree with MTD about the new FW killkrusha variant. It looks cool. But I have seen plenty of models done ere by the likes of Krooza that blow that tank right out of da water. So my question is when is FW going to hire Krooza to make their Ork vehicles? ;) I like the sound of the plastic kans and dreads. WAAAGH! da plastic dread mobs

BOLS says like this about the prices:


beakie plastic box code 26.00 / US$43.00 / 35,00 / Oz$72.00
orks plastic box code 27.00 / US$44.50 / 35,00 / Oz$74.00
orks plastic box code 30.00 / US$49.50 / 39,00 / Oz$83.00
'umies plastic box code 20.00 / US$35.00 / 30,00 / Oz$55.00
'umies plastic box code 30.00 / US$49.50 / 39,00 / Oz$83.00
scenery plastic box code 15.00 / US$24.75 / 19,50 / Oz$41.00

While not specifically assigned in black and white, these comprise:

beakie Venerable Dreadnought
Ork Killer Kans
Ork Deff Dread
'umies Chimera
'umies Basilisk


It could be three plastics for 35. That price for one would be really expensive even for GW, and for two it wouldn't have dropped the original price so much that people would buy any more of them than they have bought the metal ones (at least I wouldn't).
