FW: New Mechanicum & More At “Open Days”


Forge World is teasing even more good stuff at Warhammer World Open Days – Here comes the Mechanicum!

We already knew that Forge World was going to bring the goods for the Custodies. Now we know that there will be another star at the show because the Macrocarid Explorator will be in the house to represent the might of the Mechanicum!

The incredible new Macrocarid Explorator will be on sale for the first time – before general release – at the Warhammer 40,000 Open Days on November 5th and 6th!


It’ll be available here on forgeworld.co.uk soon after, but if you want to get one first, get your tickets for the Open Days now!

Tickets are on sale now – if you’re going to be in the area it would definitely be worth a look!

Fans of Warhammer 40,000 won’t want to miss this chance to delve into all they love about the world and it’s miniatures; at the biggest and best Warhammer 40,000 Open Days to date.

Meet members of the ‘Eavy Metal Team, Citadel Writers, Citadel Miniatures Designers, Army Painters, White Dwarf team, Warhammer World Studio and the Forge World Design Studio as they show off their new creations, chat about them, and share some favourite miniatures from the past.

I need a vacation…To go to Warhammer World Open Days!

  • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

    I love the retro sci-fi look of this, looks like a tank from the old black and white Flash Gordon series.

    • OldHat

      Yup. I don’t ever want to run one… but I want one.

  • Jared van Kell

    I want those power scythes for a Deathguard chaos lord conversion.

    • Ciaphas Cain

      Scythes of the Emperor Honour Guard.

  • Fellini’s La Formaggio Vita

    but where are the Blood Angels Power Fangs?

    • pokemastercube .

      doubt we going to see anything more for our mightly IX legion untill they do sangus prime. with the exception of cataphractii shoulder pads if they do more legion ones, and tartros pads if they are decided to be added to the specific lines

  • Alpharius

    The placement of those sponsons makes the cleanser the only valid option. Good thing it’s also the best option that comes on the model. Day 1 purchase for me.

  • benn grimm

    They should really just call it Forgeworld open day. Awesome stuff as usual, loving that Macrocarid 🙂

  • BrassWitch

    Just give me the book to run Mechanicum in 40k already, I wish to throw my money at forgeworld.

    • Ciaphas Cain

      Yeah Damn it where is IA:13 already?

      • Jeremy Brian Herndon

        Came out like two years ago its called Warmachines of the Lost and the Damned.

        • Ciaphas Cain

          Derp I meant IA:14

  • Dexter Kingsford

    I can’t quite put my finger on the differences between macrocarid and the triaros

    • Talos2

      The role they carry out is incredibly similar. I was the same

  • DeadlyYellow

    It’s like they put treads on a Corvega.

  • Alpharius

    Any guesses on cost? I hope not much more than 100 quid, although the Triaros already clocks at 88.

  • Talos2

    Hopefully night lord chain glaives will be announced before then too, else I’m going to have to moan……again
