Something new from Forgeworld that has been around in concept, but this is the first I have seen of it. Check it out, and a big thanks to Fizzybubela over on the Bols Lounge for posting it up. Definitely looks like Forgeworld is going to squeeze a final release in before years end.

  1. Looks like it fits with one of the rumored Dark Angels flyers.

    1. It also looks nothing like Astartes Aircraft, but 100% Imperial Navy.
      Plus, the page is labeled "IA1v2: Imperial Guard". Space Marine vehicles are included in IA2.

    2. IA2V2 is tanks and superheavies only thoo, there are no flyers in the book. So I guess that part is shown on the picture only because that book is also a new release.
      The flyers was updated and came with the last book wich updates all flyers and AA for 6th ed.

  2. I still dont like that style. Too choppy and triangled.

    1. Big improvement to the previous lightning. I might actually consider this model.

  4. Seems this is a complete replacement for the old lightning aircraft. Went to look on the FW website to compare, and the old has gone.

    When did that happen?

    2. I was at GD UK and in the AM Forgeworld seminar they specifically said that the model would be replaced and they wouldn't be making any more of the, at the time, current model. by the end of the day they had sold out. also on the Forgeworld slip they have an emperors children heresy era brass etch and a few other bits that aren't mentioned in the booklet.

    3. No I've just uploaded a pic of the Emperors Children brass etch. I'm curious as to what the other bits are.

    4. Ah fair enough, didnt't see the lightning mentioned in any of the seminar write ups, was all heresy this, and heresy that.

      This one matches the rest of the aircraft better, but I prefer the old one. Won't stop me buying them though.

  5. What is wrong with the people doing the modeling, did the guy that did this do the heldrake too, looks so retarted with its wings forward and doesn't actually makes sense.

    1. It dose make sense. For a supersonic ground attack fighter it makes allot of sense.

  6. You mean like any of these...?

  7. It's a Lightning Mk2. They showed it off at Games Day UK and talked about it in the Forge World Seminar.

  8. Would it kill the guy to put something down so the paper is flat. Are we that eager to be the first on the BoLS lounge.

  9. Be glad to see this come out, £75 isn't too bad either. Might actually get around to making my twin-lightning lunch-hammer list when this comes out^^ (Or at least when they start shipping back to Australia)
