I'm a Heresy-era fanboy, I've already been converting loads of marines based on the Collected Visions artwork. This new book and the accompanying minis look great – they could even get me playing current edition 40k!

That jetbike is insane.

It's not my favourite of the various jetbike designs featured in Collected Visions, but it's encouraging that they're basing new models on that source. I thought the cataphract terminators looked great, and the comms officer is a nice tribute to an old Rogue Trader miniature.

Kind of a cool way to advertise !

I noticed a few throwbacks that were almost 1:1 replicas, in new style, to old minis e.g. the communications marine with the wrist pad and antennas on his pack.

Yeah, it's basically the same mini but in MKIV armour instead of the original MKVI. But a lot of the Collected Visions artwork featured art based directly on RT models too, right back to the prototype land raider in the RT rulebook. They even had a painting of the old deodorant bottle grav-attack!

It occurs to me that this is all well and good, but maybe GW should focus on expanding their mainstream line rather than putting out all the really interesting stuff through Forge World.

Call me crazy, but it seems to that the Horus Heresy is a big enough deal that it could have spawned an entirely new product line to run along side their regular 40K stuff thus providing them a new route for revenue rather, thus potentially giving a few more years of life to the current rules set and armies.

I'm looking at all the new products and drooling for this. I have been hoping that they would put out Heresy stuff to go along with the popularity of the series of novels, but I'm with Eli also. This seems like it would be a much better release in the main stream line of products. A plastic set of Mk IV marines would be great. I'd definitely build a World Eaters force from the Heresy era.

The new Angron model is fantastic, I'll be buying one of those anyway.

I stopped playing 40k 10-ish years ago. This book and Space Hulk are bringing me back….sigh.
