GW: Limited Forge World Miniature Inbound


Forge World is releasing another Limited Edition Miniature in Games Workshop Stores – check this out!

The Limited Edition miniatures that Forge World has been bringing to Games Workshop stores have been a hit and it looks like we’re getting another model this December.

The model is believed to be a Primus Madicae for Heresy Era (30K) gaming. If you’re unfamiliar with the rules for those think of it like an Apothocary in Cataphractii Armor…sort of.

Previous limited edition models were released in June and in October.

Forge World Limited Edition June Release


Forge World Limited Edition October Release


It’s been a relatively quick turn around time since the previous Forge World Miniature with only a couple of months between releases. I’m curious if that is because of the response to these limited releases or if Games Workshop and Forge World are getting better at getting these limited edition runs done faster. I thinking it’s probably a combination of both of those factors.

Regardless, I’m glad to see more Forge World releases in Games Workshop stores. Maybe one day we’ll see an entire section of Forge World on sale in Games Workshop stores. Maybe start with Legion Specific Shoulder Pads. Just throwing that out there!


What do you think of this new Limited Edition Miniature from Forge World?

  • Kaylum Dicks

    So, it’s a terminator in a skirt? That’s not awkward at all.

    • SilentPony

      Gotta admit though, those hips don’t lie.

    • orionburn

      It’s not a skirt, it’s a kilt! When Space Marines have downtime they have a caber toss competitions.

      • Kaylum Dicks

        It’s only a kilt if they aren’t wearing anything under it, he’s defiantly wearing armor under it, so it’s a skirt.

        • Cergorach

          He isn’t wearing a codpiece, just the boots….

          • grenstauf


    • Vladamyr

      It will be flayed skin when i am done with it

      • OldHat

        That sounds extremely unsanitary.

    • dave long island

      It’s a ‘modesty waist drape’. It covers any ‘portruding bulges’… lol

  • Zingbaby

    It’s a 2+ Snuggie.

  • orionburn

    While I long for the days to simply have a US distributor on FW items to save us on shipping/tax I’d be happy with seeing FW items in GW stores. Although that doesn’t do much for me since the nearest official store is like 2 hours away…

    As to the model it’s kind of cool, but not really into that face mask thing he has. Would have been better to have a full helmet IMO.

    • rtheom

      Yeah, I have put a helmeted head on all of the previous ones that they look exponentially better.

      • Vladamyr

        As do I.

    • NNextremNN

      Even if you would drive there it’s not sure it would not be already sold out.

  • rtheom

    Ooof terrible release time guys, right in the middle of the holidays.

    • Joshua Boyle

      I and a lot of people will have Christmas money right after Christmas to spend on just such a miniature.

    • OldHat

      …isn’t that the ideal release timeframe? For gifts and stuff?

  • OldHat

    Anyone else figure out what the heck his weapons are yet?

    • Alpharius

      30K gear for a Medicae Primus consul is a narthecium (left arm) and needle pistol (right arm).

      • OldHat

        Yup. Apparently, I am bad at reading. 😀 Man, that Needle Pistol looks bizarre.

        • Alpharius

          Yeah those needles are massive. Yikes!

  • Admiral Raptor

    I feel like FW is passive aggressively giving GW all of their worst sculpts to sell in stores. All three of these releases have been butt ugly.

    • Vladamyr

      They have been very generic, but that just allows for customization for legions

      • ZeeLobby

        I think he was commenting more to the fact that theyre actually butt ugly, haha.

      • DJ860

        Ain’t nothing generic about that Ultramarine model. It’s got more legion specific icons on it than nearly any other model I’ve ever seen.

    • NNextremNN

      I like Legion Praetor Tribune I wish I would have one … but yeah I can agree on the others.

  • Deez

    I could kit bash something together that would look much better than this guy.

  • TheWanderingJewels

    is that…Alpha legion?

    • OldHat

      Death Guard, I think.

    • Alpharius

      It’s a Caduceus on the chest. Google it. The Legion is Death Guard.

  • Raven Jax

    The pauldron on the guy on the poster behind the model made me think for a second that the model was carrying a shovel.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Thank you, now that you said that, its all I see. Bolter Shovel! A+ assault weapon.

    • Deacon Ix

      entrenching tool

      • euansmith

        A vital tool in any grim dark doctor’s medical kit.

  • Crablezworth

    all armour types are beautiful

    • Alpharius

      Cataphractii Armour Matters?

  • Chet Atkinson

    Medicae even
    Wish they’d bring these out in plastic

  • Who is making these elephant-leg-guys? … meh

  • Talos2

    You do get the impression that the special ed in store minis are stuff that fw wouldn’t have released otherwise, they just haven’t had that special quality to them imho. I don’t mind this one though, it is wearing a sarong but it I sort of like it. It’s different, I’ve never seen one before, not sure if any fluff/ artwork supports it. It’s a maybe for me

  • Jared van Kell

    Wait until they show the Traitor Librarian in Cataphracti Armour.that I saw at the Black Library Live event. It is summoning a bloodletter.

  • ColonelFazackerley

    Another one off space marine. Yawn.

  • Alpharius

    Proportions of a squat. The apron is incredibly silly. Caduceus only thing that’s neat.

    Still better than that mongoloid banner bearer.

  • nurglitch

    That’s an interesting gun in its right hand.

  • Countdiscount

    I absolutely love this model. It’s the Death Guardiest, model to ever Death Guard!
