Warhammer 40K: Five Other Forge World Kits We Wish Were Plastic

3 Minute Read
Feb 12

Before you say Thunderhawk, we did that already. This is for the Forge World OTHER kits we wish would get the plastic treatment.

Forge World has a wonderful catalogue of miniatures. Unfortunately they are resin and for most of the world you have to special order them. Sure, they run deals on shipping but it’s just easier to pick them up from your FLGS when they are a plastic kit that just sort of stays available and in stock. If we had our way, we’d convert these resin kits over to new plastic kits and make them a “regular” part of their armies line.

Termite Assault Drill

This is the transport that the Ad Mech REALLY want. A giant drill that bores into the ground and pops-up where you need it? This is a kit that needs to become a mainstay for the Ad Mech.

Legion Anvillus Pattern Dreadclaw Drop Pod

This is like a Drop Pod, but better! We’re fans of this kit and wish that it would make a come back in plastic. Maybe not for Space Marines…but I’m sure Chaos wouldn’t mind having it as an option…

Hell Talon Chaos Fighter Bomber 

We were debating between this one and the Hell Blade.¬†But in reality either works. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of flyers but the Hell Talon just kinda works. Maybe it’s the forward-swept wing look but I like it. Plus it looks very different from any Imperial Counterparts and that’s a good thing in my book (just because it’s actually different).

Chaos Decimator Daemon Engine


Look, Space Marines got their Primaris Redemptor Kit AND the Invictor Tactical Warsuit. Can Chaos Marines get a good Dreadnought, too? They already have one. The Decimator is a beast…now just make it plastic and give us lots of arm options. BOOM. Problem solved.

Ork Squiggoth

Compared to the Imperial and Chaos lines, the Forge World Xenos kits are fewer in number by a wide margin. But there are some gems in that line-up. One in particular is the Ork Squiggoth. Not to be confused with the Gargantuan Squiggoth, this is the “smaller” cousin. Why do I want this kit in plastic? Because people like Dinosaurs and this would be a sneaky way to get them into the Grimdark! They are already in the Mortal Realms, and I’m also thinking that a plastic version of this kit would make for some awesome conversion opportunities.


There are LOTS more Forge World Kits that could make the jump to plastic – which ones would you want?
