FW: New Releases “Death Korps Revival”

The Death Korps of Krieg are getting unleashed from Forge World!

via Forge World

Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squad At Ease £43

The true strength of the Death Korps lies in its grim foot soldiers, the ranks of disciplined and relentless infantry that make up the korps of the siege regiments. Their cold hearted courage and sinister aspect have made them among the most famous and feared of all the regiments of the Astra Militarum.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 10-man Infantry Squad of the Death Korps of Krieg. As the title implies, they’re modelled at ease, with these miniatures eschewing the usual hyper-aggressive tone of the Death Korps for something a little more relaxed (not a state likely to last for long…). Clad in the expected sinister masks and helmets, 8 of them boast a lasgun – some hefting theirs, others leaning on them casually.

Numerous details are included – the models feature tarp rolls on their backpacks, entrenching tools hanging from their belts and canisters. 1 model features a flamer slung across his back, and 1 is a Sergeant, distinguishable by his sword and shoulder pad chevrons.

This kit comes as 55 components, and is supplied with 10 25mm round bases. Rules can be found in Imperial Armour – Index: Astra Militarum.

Death Korps Krieg Quartermaster and Retinue £32

This is a resin kit containing a Death Korps of Krieg Quartermaster, clad in a particularly sinister uniform and wielding a laspistol – often used to deliver ‘the Emperor’s Peace’ to Guardsmen too injured to accept his help. He is accompanied by 3 servitors; 1 carrying the uniform of a fallen Guardsman, 1 lugging the enormous list of the Quartermaster’s duties (and the names of those he has dispatched) and 1 medical servitor bristling with unpleasant yet necessary machinery designed to hopefully eke out a few more fights from Guardsmen who aren’t quite dead. An additional injured Guardsman is also supplied.

Supplied with 5 25mm round bases.

Death Rider Outrider Detachment £230

Assemble a full Death Korps of Krieg Outrider Detachment, as outlined in the Warhammer 40,000 book, with this set of 16 resin miniatures (each of which features a brass lance). It includes:

– 4 Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider 1 (who has the option to be assembled as a Ridemaster);
– 3 Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider 2;
– 3 Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider 3;
– 3 Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider 4;
– 3 Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider 5;

Forge World is brining the BOOM back with the Death Korps of Krieg!

  • Moonsaves

    The Kriegsmen are great models. A good show of support for them right now for Forgeworld would be release a Codex: Death Korps of Krieg, detailing any updates to their units from the index, as well as unique relics and regimental orders etc.

    • DoctorBored

      I mean, at this point, any rulebook from FW that gives their factions Doctrines/Chapter Tacticts/etc would be great.

    • Watcherzero

      Probably expect an errata update to Imperial Armour to drop shortly after the codex updating the model points/rules.

  • Heinz Fiction

    These are some nice WW1 models.

  • piglette

    Do these represent any discount from buying individually?

    • Rottenflieger

      Yes they do

  • Rayna M. McCowan

    I do love those backpacks.

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Krieg muthafockas!

  • CloakingDonkey

    lol these FW prices are such a joke xD

    • zeno666

      Yeah, but you get those resin bubbles for free!

      • Iconoc1ast

        And banana shaped earthshaker cannons

        • zeno666

          Yepp. Those in the picture look kind of straight.
          But I don’t get why they didn’t fix the bubbles on the lower part of the coat of that painted model.

          • Iconoc1ast

            They are very straight in the pic but you can certainly bet that the ones they send you will need some heat treatment.

          • Ebsolom

            I’ve had to straighten the barrels on my Fire Raptor and Sicarius tank. Don’t get me started with the flimsiness of brightlances on Eldar vehicles : (

  • Mike Tbone Green

    if they were just regular plastic i would so get them and paint them in steel legion

  • KreskinsESP

    How well did the DKoK range actually sell? I’ve seen plenty of Forge World stuff out in the world, but not really that much Krieg, in a way that’s really disproportionate to the size of the product range, and how much people fawn over the models.

    I wonder who had the idea to have the small-scale boutique models arm of the company go all-in on an army with such a high model count.

    I’m not sure they understand how much money people actually have.

    • piglette

      They are just so obnoxiously expensive especially for a horde army. Very few can stomach the investment.

      • KreskinsESP

        They’re great for dioramas and such, though.

        • piglette

          Oh they’re great for gaming too, if you can afford it. I am resolute on fielding an army someday, but for now I just have a few random models.

      • KreskinsESP

        Also, the one thing I will always remember when thinking about DKoK is how people would buy the big, dense pile of standing troops that was intend to put in the back of transports for decorative purposes and clip them apart.

        • Rottenflieger

          That was a really good way to bulk up your numbers. It’s how I got 4 squads and 2 command squads. Since then I’ve supplemented them with the advancing/firing squads when I can afford them, in the end it’s quite a decent looking horde.

    • Big Red

      When you look at other hobbies, it’s not some astronomical price. Let’s say an army will put you back 1500 pounds. This will get you three of the platoon kits (300 a pop and have 40 guard/6 heavy weapons/command squad) and an assortment of tanks/rough riders/extras.

      Lets look at some other hobbies that I am involved enough with to be able to directly comment. For clarification, I am going convert everything to Australian dolarioos because thats where my knowledge is based. This means our DKOK is around $2500.

      Guitars: To make things simple, lets limit it to Fender. The base model of their premium range (I think this most accurately follows the premium style range of forgeworld) is the stratocaster. For the classic strocaster you are looking at $2000, while for the American pro, the one that I feel matches the same level of prestige/deiserability that the DKOK do is $2900.

      Drums: For a basic DW kit (another strong brand name) you are talking about $3500+, excluding cymbals ect.

      Horses: My sister was the one into horse riding, so I can’t go into super high detail, but she was spending at least $2000-3000 a year of keeping that hobby going.

      Paintball: I go paintballing every once in a while. Each trip costs me around $150 in paintballs/field rental/other stuff. Lets say that you do this twice a month (round about the same amount a lot of people get in games of warhammer) This comes out to be about $3600 a year.

      Video Games: Get a ps4 pro ($470) and one new game a month for a couple of years ($89) $2600.

      This is not to mention the huge amounts of people that go out and spend tens of thousands of get skies, boats, atvs or any number of other toys.

      The price point that they are at seams to be far from being out of the reach of the general market seeing as lots of industries seem to operate in that range.

      • Rottenflieger

        You make a good point there, plenty of other hobbies are comparable prices. It all comes down to how much value you actually see yourself getting out of little plastic and resin soldiers.

      • Wildcard1980

        Agreed a hobby is only as expensive as you want it to be if your hard core and you want to go all the way. It doesn’t matter what hobby it’s would can spend hundreds, thousands to tens of thousands of dollars on any hobby.

      • Heinz Fiction

        At least the guitar doesn’t get devalued with the next rules update…

        Furthermore it doesn’t really make sense to compare the DKoK investment with other hobbies I can’t afford rather than the average investment in the same hobby.

        • af

          > At least the guitar doesn’t get devalued with the next rules update…

          If you’re into the hobby/collecting aspects or friendly games — but not for competitive tournaments — miniatures do not get devalued, ever, for any game.

        • MKG35

          Have you thought of getting into a different hobby?

  • Rainthezangoose

    How much I’d buy from forgeworld if it wasn’t forgeworld xD
