via HMO:

Warhammer fans have plenty to look forward to as HMO announces an official partnership with Games Workshop to produce a line of amazing Warhammer 40,000 statue collectibles.

The most iconic of Warhammer 40,000 characters brought to life with this collaboration, and the fantasy of seeing your favourite characters in high definition detailed large scale will now become reality. You can expect greatness true to the original source art as the HMO creative team (behind sold-out collectibles like Ren and Capcom’s Mega Man X) works closely with the Games Workshop team!

The new line boasts some serious action in 1:6 scale dioramas of defining Warhammer 40,000 scenes. “The optimal scale of 1:6 in diorama form will allow us to bring the best elements of Warhammer 40,000, which include the dynamism and clash between the characters, to the fan’s desk,” said Mr Mufizal, HMO’s lead of the Creative Team.

H.M.O. (Hand Made Object) Collectables as worked with CapCom, Sony, and XM Studios. It was founded by Benjamen Wu and Mufizal Mokhtar, both formerly of Ubisoft and have a collective 20 year history in the industry. They specialize in AAA quality hand crafted pieces. Their statues and maquettes range in price from $280 to over $1,000. There are no photos of the 40k statues available right now, but here are some examples of the company’s work:

 

 

 

They look nice, and no doubt the new statues will have the same level of detail in sculpts and paint. The fact that they’ve landed contracts with major companies already is a good sign, as well.

 

Which characters would you like to see in this new statue line?

  • I_am_Alpharius

    I’ll stick to my toy soldiers thanks. Obviously these are top notch quality, but I have never really understood the appeal.

    • JPMcMillen

      Some people have more money than brains,

      Personally, I like the idea I just wish they weren’t so far on the high end. Something smaller in the under $100 range would be nice.

      • Rich

        Like those who buy plastic you soliders?

    • dave long island

      The appeal is that it’s very expensive and it sits on your shelf… collecting dust. So you then have to purchase a clear display case… Which then collects dust. So you have to dust it. That’s the appeal.

      • I_am_Alpharius

        Haha.

      • piglette

        Like a Warhound Titan?

        • dave long island

          Mayhap.

      • georgelabour

        So it helps get otherwise computer chair bound sods an excuse for exercise.

        And who can put a price on being healthy right?

  • These will make great trophies for events.

    • orionburn III

      That’s a really good idea.

  • Matt C

    As a collector of Sideshow and Hot toys Star Wars figure, I would expect the $300 price range at the least. Considering the mass of a Marine, maybe even closer to $500 at minimum. I’m curious to see how these look though.

  • Foxdonut

    How hilarious would it be if the entire line was squats and sister of battle.

    • That would still be more awesome than yet another space marine large scale figure.

    • dave long island

      lol 🙂

    • Dirheim

      I assure that there is market for some Repentia Sisters 😉

  • Moonman45

    if they are poseable I will have some random ultramarine choking master chief with one hand. i will then spam comicbattles with the image.

  • caljenks

    if im gonna potentially pay that much for a 40k statue, the money may as well go to forge world…

    • Derpius Prime

      lmao was about to say the same

  • Kevin Barton

    I like the red and gold tau model there

    • Kritarion

      the Sta’Rk, my favourite Tau sept.

  • piglette

    Imagine an Ork Warboss from this company. 🤤

  • Bayne MacGregor

    If they do a good Genestealer or Mechanicus i’d be tempted, but i notice it says “Dioramas”, which implies multiple figure action scenes and that may drive cost and size right out of my reach.

  • Nick Linc

    But will they have rules to use with them?
