Coming soon from Forgeworld:

Created as a dedicated assault dropship for the Legio Custodes, the Orion can carry a full task force of the Emperor's Talons into combat.



Obviously won't be cheap, but I like it. Has lots of potential for other game universes (with a bit of scalpel work on the aquilae).

Wonder why WH40K isn't an option for cross-posting?

And it looks like there are only two eagles to carve off!

Now that works outside he 40k universe. At last not some box with wings.

I like it but lighten the photo and have a look at the join inside between the top and bottom hulls!

OMG … It's Dwartist! I prostrate my self before you!!!

But back on topic :-)

Could it be because it's a pre-production kit flung together for the photo?

I admit I've never been hands-on with a FW kit tbh. Would they really let something like that pass QA?

haha – get up you fool! I've had a couple of FW models with fit issues (admittedly a few years ago and the most recent one went together okay) so would be weary. I'll stick to Antenociti for dropships I think.

If their QA is the same as it was in ~2004?

That's a *good* model. I had Tau Tetras and Piranhas with horribly mismolded parts and was told "those are fine".
