Forge World.... No release? Betrayal of Calth teaser pic released

Usually around this time I would be showing you all the newest products heading out of the Forge World studios. So far we havent seen anything come from them, a few speculative points coming up, most over one question I am asking myself:

Are Forge World not releasing anything today to keep the suspense for the imminent preview and release of the Betrayal of Calth box set coming out?

We are being treated to the previews tomorrow so are Forge World stepping back to allow us to throw our money and souls at the new plastic box set? 

If Forge World do provide a release later on today I will of course update this thread or create a new post for all of you.

Let me know what your guess with this is in the comments below :)


Update @10.53

An email from Forge World has just dropped showing a teaser pic. See below:


Perhaps it is in reference to my above point? What do you guys make of it?

  1. GW have betrayal at Calth up on what's new today. FW are probably taking a backseat this week

  2. That would be my guess as well. It looks like the three kingdoms of Lenton are working hand-in-hand on this one, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's going to be the norm moving forward now that there is a plastic range for 30k.

    1. Three kingdoms? I though Black library is part of Forgeworld.

    2. BL and FW are both part of GW, independent to some degree but obviously closely linked

  3. Email from FW:

    BaC is just the beginning... 10.30am tomorrow!

    Can't wait to see what forge world has up their slaves!

  4. I just wish FW had painted the miniatures and designed the box art. That pic would sell the box imho.

    1. i need to admit, it's a shame that the great 'eavy metal team can't get the colour schemes right (Ultramarines look to light, Word Bearers look like Blood Angels) - i mean, they could have used atleast the FW airbrush paints (althought the tamiya red scheme still rocks!)

    2. Agree about the Word Bearers they are rather off, but the Ultramarines are some of the darkest ones to date.

    3. it's funny, because if you look at the "good" scan q what's new today, the Ultramarines look pretty baby-blue - but yeah, from the other leaks they are darker, you are right ^.^

  5. Wouldn't be surprised to see either Ventanus or Garro soon :P

    1. I need that Nathaniel Garro model ASAP. I am now currently pouring through Flight of the Eisenstein and getting all Command squad / sergeant info that I can muster!

  6. Intriguing stuff. Nice though to have a few genuine surprises though these days.

  7. They commented earlier this or last week about the ordinatus? Possibly fw available in store? Mastadon, cheeky primarch release? Place your bets now!

    1. Ordinatus hopefully next Friday now (wouldn't interfere purchasing-wise with Legion collectors). Stormbird is getting re-hashed. Mastadon is ready by now too.

  8. Anybody see this page on the FW site: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Fire-Raptor-Competition

    Looks like they're announcing a competition starting tomorrow. Giving away Fire Raptors and creating Legion bundles

    1. Probably bundles of legion specific torsos, pads etc.. to spice up a bunch of generic plastic marines.
