Also I never intended this kind of post to be much of a focus for the Blog, unless of course it was something I was buying; but with such a deluge of awesomeness coming from Games Workshop and Forge World right now I just couldn't resist the alteration to the planned schedule.
Besides I reasoned that being so far out on the fringe of the Imperium's Blogosphere, some regular visitors to The Veil's Edge may not pass by some of the more congested trade lanes to pick up the news. Not you Danny, I know you consort with all manner of Blogs be they sanctioned or not, you Rogue Trader! ;o)

Following the announcement that Forge World would be embarking on a Heresy product line, it has become clear they've been planning and marshalling their forces for quite some time; in the lead up to Games Day UK the pre-release info for the 30k Verse is coming like a Legion strength Drop Pod Assault.
Including what I think is a Fellblade, which looks like an old Predator Tank on serious steroids and a particular favourite of mine, a real blast from the past; is a Marine Communications Specialist.
With a limited number of these items being available at Games Day (see more here), Sunday promises to be quite a day; an early start and if all goes to plan, a hefty hit to the wallet but one well worth taking.
