Today we are turning back the clock to get a look at some of the best cutaway drawing GW has produced over the decades. Let’s start off with perhaps the most famous, the Land Raider poster from 2000.
If there is something I can’t resist, it’s a good cutaway drawing. From my early days of building scale models, and poring over WW2 books with cutaway drawing of every tank and plane under the sun -cutaway drawings are awesome. Let’s wade into GW’s offerings over the years.
This poster is perhaps the most famous cutaway, about 2 decades old. It kicked off the introduction of the modern Land Raider kit, and GW’s long road to making ever more detailed kits. The Land Raider was super advanced for it’s time with the working assault ramp, and detailed interior.
The Predator cutaway poster appeared 2 years later in 2002.
Of course the granddaddy of all the cutaway drawing was of the classic Beakie marine power armor from the Rogue Trader book of 1989
When the Orks got their Stompa, we got a cool new Apocalypse poster to go along.
Here’s the Leman Russ Demolisher cutaway from back in the 90s.
Then over the past decade and a half, Forge World has been cranking out cutaway drawing for all kinds of vehicles to accompany their series of Hardcover Imperial Armor books. Here are just a few:
The flying workhorse of the Astra Militarum has a fully detailed interior and the cutaway does the kit justice. Let’s round out the last 3 with a variety of Imperial tanks.
~Who still has some of these classics on their walls?
