Yes we have all seen that great pic in the recent video of the Plastic Thunderhawk box, and we all know about the mystery hawk on the front cover of Inferno and on at least 2-3 pages within.
Today another bit of tinder has been added to the speculation Fire that is the Plastic Thunderhawk rumours. Forge World have marked the Resin Thunderhawk as Sold Out, with an availability of No longer available.
Now in the past this is because the item is being repackaged (from baggy to box), or because the item is discontinued. For instance the Xiphon:
Because to my knowledge, the Thunderhawk is already in a Red Box, it doesn't look like it is because of that.
It could be that it re-surfaces randomly in the next few days, maybe a different code, but for now I am going to be checking FW's site closely to see if it comes back up (but I am doubtful it will). I am fully in the camp of convinced people that a Plastic Thunderhawk is imminent (maybe GW had delays getting it completed before the Horus Heresy Weekender, and so are now planning of dropping the new sleeker pattern in Plastic at Warhammer-Fest?)
So to me it is the end of the line for this ol' girl, beautiful as she was, but we will see in the next few weeks and months.
