The one thing about this hobby is that there are always people scouring every inch of every pic or display looking for something hidden. Most often they are wrong and it is nothing, however, there are just enough good finds to keep us all hunting and waiting for the next hidden gem. Check this Forgeworld mini out.


This one is from the Iron Legion blog, so please head on over there for more pics and a much better description of what it is that was found.

I'm sure like everyone else out there, you've seen many of the pictures from the Istvaan diorama that Forgeworld produced for Games Day this year. Its currently on display at Warhammer World in Nottingham, in the case next to the main building entrance so that everyone can check it out.


This is the left end of the diorama, in amongst the traitor legions:
Wait a minute, there's something funny in that doorway, some kind of commander model perhaps?

Touché Forgeworld.  I did drop Forgeworld a line to ask about him and it turns out I'm the first person to spot and inform them of spotting Wally.  Woot!

  1. ...is that just another commander figure? (If so its pretty underwhelming). Or is it supposed to be a specific character?

    1. Pretty sure it's just an easter egg, a standard commander painted in red/white stripes just like the character from 'Where's Wally(UK)/Waldo(US)'.

    2. Why do Americans always have to be different?

    3. It had to do with cultural norms for names and the simple fact that " we're 'murica! We ain't like you limey little bastards!" Proud to be an Ametican.....

  5. This post prompted me to start scouring the YouTube video of this board, and I found a caedere weapon (the excoriator chainaxe) held by a terminator (the one closest to Angron at 1:43) if anyone's interested. Also there's the chainaxe weapons set, but that one's existence is common knowledge (I think...).

  10. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for
    something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Also see my website - amphora tobacco

  11. If it's a World Eaters special character, it would probably only be Shabran Darr - but then, he's on the loyalist side, so he's on the wrong side of the fence in this picture. Who knows? Maybe just a legion praetorian kit?

  12. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange solutions with
    others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  14. There is a second red and white legionnaire in the diorama! I can't remember which website I saw it on but the speculated it as a White Scar?!

    He is on the left of the diorama, near the Typhon heavy siege tank,in the corner window of the building that the other is seen exiting. He looked
    like he was in directing fire.

    Can't find the exact picture again but he is just visable in some of the photos already floating around!

    Does anyone have any clearer pictures?!
