Forge World Preview: Varagyr Terminator & Future Kits

Had the absolute pleasure of attending the Forge World Studio Open Day today, great to catch up with the designers and see some of the fantastic new kits coming out… it’s a shame the space wolves offerings aren’t among them.

Had a lengthy chat with Rob MacFarlane the sculpter and designer for the Space Wolves Legion, he has confirmed the following releases:

  • Varagyr Terminators (full kit of 5)
  • Deathsworn (full kit of 5)
  • Praetor
  • Hvarl Red-Blade
  • Grey Slayer Upgrade kits, potentially five different kits with mixed weapon options.

No mention of Priests.

Rob had a singular Varagyr Terminator with him today:

 

This is a 3D print of a model which is essentially complete. I personally am not keen. I think the model has a lot of very strong positive elements, love the lower grieves in the style of Russ’ and the furs mimic those i have done on my Varagyr conversions, love the top knot and the concept of the knot-work… However the head position, and model posture is terrible, the coarseness of the detailing, particularly the hair, fur and knot-work is not to my tastes and reminds me of 80’s comic barbarians.

The concept art for the Space Wolves Terminators is rich and plentiful:

I hope that the final models will look better than this, but i am not hopeful, likewise i hope that the Deathsworn, Hvarl and other kits are to a finer quality.

Until Next Winter…
