Well recently we saw a lot of advertisments on the Forge World website for the various armour variants they produce, I thought this was strange that they advertise items that were quite old, established and the meat and gravy of all Legion forces, I even posted about it at the time thinking it was strange and that I predicted it was the Precursor to a Plastic Range. This accidentally came out the other week and is all over the web.
Games Workshop and Forge World have been very good to us recently in my opinion and am quite happy that it feels as though it is a "Let them eat cake" style attitude.
This I believe is continuing. . . .
. . . this week we have the Thunderhawk gunship on the new FW page.. .
Now this may be purely supposition, but I really do expect that this is the forerunner to us finally seeing the holy grail of wargaming: the Plastic Thunderhawk.
In my opinion the Sokar is too similar in size to warrant having both on their books (see the Lucius Warhound).
