Its been a big issue on whether or not the Thunderhawk gunship seen in the recent White Dwarf photo is a new plastic one, or simply a Forgeworld model with slight differences. Here is an image of what might actually be our mysterious Thunderhawk gunship back in 2010. (images below)


So What is Your Take? Its starting to look much like the Forgeworld models. So it looks like we can all get back to dreaming about the day when Games Workshop is going to release a plastic Thunderhawk Gunship.

Oh yea..... I also received this from a source regarding the White Dwarf pic.
rumours of Plastic thunderhawk... this aint happening and the thunderhawk in the pics that are floating around the net is by FW.

and this
 I knew I remembered seeing this before. Attached are two photos from 2010, showing the same style Thunderhawk, different from the FW version.

    1. I wondered the exactly same thing... they look identical to me.

    2. The forgeworld site showed their gunship with a big skull and Aquila on the cockpit which the WD pic didn't and the barrel of the main cannon was different. But then enough people pointed out the decoration was optional and there were two options of cannons in the kit. Minor, but enough to tease fools like me into hoping :P

    3. So people who have never seen the actual kit and don't know about the optional bits are calling it conspiracy?

    1. IMO the only difference is that on that WD picture its surrounded by GW models, not FW ones.

  8. Anyone want to venture a guess as to whether or not the Traitor Legions would be able to take Thunderhawks? If I recall correctly, they have them in the fluff...

  10. This is not the ship you are looking. But it's for sale if you'd like to buy one.

  11. I feared it would be to good to be true, it did fit the large model for both loyalists and traitors specification nicely though.

    The logical conclusion to draw from this therefore is that GW must be releasing a plastic titan variant.
