Thallax weapons pic from warseer

oh and internet chatter (@kirbys) is suggesting that whilst cover pic is imperial fists,the title defense of terra, apparently whitescars were hanging around terra at same time, so all the rumours of whitescars expansion not completely ruled out.(but nobody cares about that but me :P )

You're not alone asking that question, when there was *nothing* from the next codex (fantasy) there,you had to be one of the people raving about the *photo* of the *slideshow* that showed a *WIP* of horus's *face*.. to not feel a tad let down by it. Still early days..maybe some of the people coming out of some of the other talks will come with some gems.. but basically thats it as far as I can see.

EDit- its not like warhammer forge had mucn there either (unless someone is sat on a pile of photos,or something it was just 2 models??)
From warseers Brother Nidus
Some things from the Forgeworld seminar that were mentioned (from what i can remember).

Book Three they are looking for Easter release.

The next trilogy order is Prospero, Signus, Calth.

Prospero is provisionally called 'Inferno'.

Custodes and Sisters of Silence will be in 'Inferno'.

Imperial Army units may be appearing in Calth book.

Mecanicum 'Thralls' are being worked on. more human like troops. Will be able to mix with cadians kit.

They are hoping to get 4-5 primarchs out a year and maybe two books a year (aiming Prospero for December 2014).

Lorgar was painted that night by the sculptor (and yes it is Lorgar get over it)

If i remember anything else i'll chime in again.

I'll wait for bara or someone to chime in with the economics of it, if its just a revenue generator that is a bit sad and you'd expect ticket sales to plummet I have no idea though.
But the main thing other (web) peeps seem to be blaming it on is leak control. As In GW are terrified of leaks of codex,(although i guess backwards engineering and casting display minis might be a possible??????)

Yes, thats the dividing line IMO..
you either sit there and say "demm passport photos" and dribble.. or you don't. (i'm not sure if I'm too negative)
More stuff on the space marine expansion here
http://pinsofwar.com/sentinels-of-terra ... upplement/

Games Day is coming to a close. Once again, it was a fine event, though the reduced numbers and the lack of gaming made it a very different beast from last year’s Games Day.

I’ll write a more in-depth post tomorrow or so, but here’s a quick update with two “newsy” items.
#1 – Sentinels of Terra

The first new product revealed was “Sentinels of Terra”, which was announced both in the GD Programme and on the show booth of the Digital Editions display.

I had a brief chat with a lady from the Digital Editions team. She’s obviously not a Codex writer, but part of the team doing app-design and project management.

Still, she seemed knowledgeable enough, stressing the Sentinels of Terra would not be an “Imperial Fist supplement” (as they’ve been covered in the new Space Marines Codex).

Instead, the focus is on the 3rd Company of the Imperial Fist (who now go with the honourific “Sentinels of Terra”, it appears) and to focus specifically on the history and battles of the 3rd Company with the tried Supplement-format of Missions, a few items, Warlord Traits, etc..

There also was a “preview” version of the Supplement available on one of the iPads GW had out to display eBooks. Similar to previews directly from GW’s iBookstore, it had no crunchy bits. It did have a sample mission, a few pics and a few pages of background.

Curiously, the preview seemed to feature Captain Lysander very heavily. There was a 1-page spread of the Lysander miniature and a background-chapter titled “The Rise of Lysander”. That seems to contradict the “3rd Company emphasis”, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

The Sentinels of Terra Space Marines Supplement will be released (as eBook) in October 2013.

I also saw printed versions of the Black Legions Chaos Space Marines Codex (both limited and unlimited), so they all seem to make it into print eventually.

I went to games day this year, was a much nicer event in that it was downsized so it was less manic of a day with the lesser capacity it never felt over crowded except around the golden demon entries where every blogger was trying to get their photos. Despite the obvious hate for the games day as a whole which I don't really understand. The Sentinels of Terra supplement is based around the 3rd company of Imperial fists, looks very nice for all you Lysander officiandos. The thing tagged as an ork meganob is actually a chaos dwarf kai'dai construct. The painted primarch is Lorgar, but not Horus as stated but that is because Simon Egan didn't design him, and he stated that he was designed Horus as his next primarch which is number 5 to be released. Overall the only thing that this games day lacked was actual games to participate in, while I enjoyed discussing stuff with the design studio this wasn't enough to fill the day.

"Despite obvious hate" if you're referring to above, thats not hate. Thats an absence of anything to chew on. As a gamer you attend games day and cannot game, as a gossip monger I read peoples reports and live feeds and the only thing forums can talk about is "does lorgar look too weak?" (Leads to fluff lecture). As a moddler you see nearly (can you confirm it was actually zero?) No new gw (plastics/finecast) on display. Did they have the book stalls with author signings, was there lots there not pictured above (beyond the giant set piece battle thingys ;) )

Lorgar as a primarch isn't a fighter like his brothers, so him being physically slighter than the others is in keeping with the fluff in my opinion. All the new dark elves were on display, and they look very nice and that there are lots of conversion possibilities with them for dark elder and slaanesh daemons. Yes they had book stalls, almost the full roster of black library authors on signing duty for most of the day. Yes there were loads of personal collections on display from the design team. I only got to attend one of the 4 seminars available on the day, I caught the one about white scars, word bearers and world eaters in the universe of GW and it was insightful into how the authors think of the universe.

As for the hate, it was aimed at this
Think GD days are numbered. Shows as well in that GW also has downsized venue as well. If FW was not there they would of gone by last year IMO.

My opinion from today is that while downsizing does mean that it has less people than previous years, it meant that the ones there were the ones wanting to be there and there was very few people there without a bag of shopping so compared to last year it may have been more profitable.

It's a big revenue generator, as long as running it shifts enough stuff to remain profitable it'll go on. FW is neither here nor there as far as GD is concerned given they now charge like £70 to go to Open Days at WHW.

I'll reserve judgement on Lorgar until I see proper shots, pose doesn't get me excited (easy gents) but the armour detail looked good. Venator main gun looks ace.

Warhammer Forge is pretty much on hold due to the lack of success of WHF in general and the massive success of Horus Heresy.

Supplements for companies of marines is a piss-take I didn't think even GW would manage, but their distasteful monetising of text continues apace.
