As always important bits are shown below:
Hi there, With only a few days left before we throw wide our doors for the 2011 Forge World Open Day, we can now confirm four more fantastic pre-release items that will be on sale at the event, including the first Forge World Realm of Battle Gameboard expansion tile!
Pre-Release Kits on sale at the Forge World Open Day
Realm of Battle Gameboard Imperial Strongpoint Expansion
An exciting new addition to Forge World’s finely detailed resin scenery range is the Imperial Strongpoint Expansion. Designed for use with the Citadel Realm of Battle Gameboard, this 2' by 2' tile is a superbly detailed fortified stronghold that will make a great feature for armies to fight over in your Warhammer 40,000 battles.
Perfect for representing critical objectives such as a command and control facility, or a fortified artillery pit, the Imperial Strongpoint can be used in games of Planetstrike as a unique Bastion or to represent a huge variety of stratagems, strategic assets and other rules in Battle Missions, games of Apocalypse and other Warhammer 40,000 battles, not to mention the Games Day Armies on Parade competition.
Exclusively available at the Forge World Open Day on Sunday 3rd April, prior to its main release date later this year, the Realm of Battle Imperial Strongpoint, designed by Stuart Williamson, costs £60.
Rare and precious beyond compare, their souls protected from the predations of Slaanesh within spirit stones, long-dead Warlocks of great power can still be summoned to aid their Craftworld in the form of a Wraithseer. Armed with a lethal D-Cannon and a Wraithblade wreathed in the eldritch energy of their psychic arts, a Wraithseer is a terrible and implacable foe.
Will Hayes, is a complete resin and plastic kit that will be available in limited numbers at the Forge World Open Day prior to its release later in April. The kit costs £34.
Eldar Corsair Conversion Kit
There are many bands of so-called ‘Corsair’ Eldar scattered across the galaxy, and all are savage and deadly raiders. Outcasts from the strict confines of the Craftworlds, the Corsairs live in self-imposed exile, seeking to explore the galaxy and experience the full gamut of emotion and sensation accessible to the Eldar’s sensitive psyche.
The Eldar Corsair Conversion Kit is designed for use with the plastic Eldar range. Designed by Will Hayes, this resin upgrade kit contains detailed weapons, jump packs and heads that enable Eldar players to convert ten plastic Eldar Guardians into Corsairs. The Corsair kit will be available in limited numbers at the Forge World Open Day, priced at £18.
Red Scorpions Decal Sheet
The latest addition to Forge World’s Transfer Sheet range is this lavish Red Scorpions Decal Sheet, designed by Paul Rudge.
The decal sheet will be available in limited numbers, hot off the press, at the Forge World Open Day for £9.20 This is well in advance of its main release later in April.
Open Day Painting Competition Update
As always, at the Forge World Open Day you will have the chance to win the prestigious Forge World Best of Show Trophy in our annual Painting Competition.
Entries should comprise a single Forge World model and can be anything from a single Krieg infantryman to a fully-laden Tau Manta. Entries must be registered by 12 noon at the event.
Judging by the Forge World Studio team will take place over the course of the afternoon, and the winner’s trophy will be awarded at 3:30pm.
Open Day Participation Gaming
If the Studio displays and Sales stand weren’t enough, the Forge World Open Day also includes our ‘Super Heavy Metal’ participation game. Players in this mega-battle can take command of mighty Reaver and Warhound Titans of the Legio Gryphonicus or lead a huge mob of savage Ork Stompas to victory.
Overseen by the Warhammer World Events team, this game will run throughout the Open Day. Watching the might of a full-strength Titan Maniple facing off against a dozen Stompas will be an impressive sight to behold!
Charity Titan Raffle Reminder
Attending the Forge World Open Day always gives one lucky person the chance to win a mighty Titan for a mere one pound, and this year’s event is no different. The Open Day 2011 Titan Raffle prize will be the imposing, immense and lavishly detailed Eldar Phantom Titan!
Tickets for the raffle can be only purchased at the Open Day from the Painting Competition Registration area, and the draw will be made at 3:30pm. Tickets are £1 each and you can enter as many times as you like, although you must still be at the Open Day when the draw is made to win!
In light of the recent and on-going natural disasters in Japan, all proceeds from this year’s raffle will be donated to the WorldVision UK Tsunami Relief Fund, a children’s charity currently assisting with relief efforts in some of the worst-affected areas of Japan. You can find more details about the charity at www.worldvision.org.uk/server.php?show=nav.3001&giftId=47.
