Forgeworld has recently put this up:

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/VALTHEX-ASTRAL-CLAWS-MASTER-OF-THE-FORGE.html

I think it looks awesome, and while I love some of the conversion beamer conversions I've seen, I really dig this and also the one for the Contemptor( here: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/CONTEMPTOR-HEAVY-CONVERSION-BEAMER.html )

Thought that seeings as this hadn't appeared yet people would enjoy a peep.

I think the gun looks rather good, although a little like it fell off the magic roundabout.
The figure itself tho is rather boring, it could have been so much more.
I mean it could have been more dynamically posed if it was sitting cross legged and picking its nose!
When looking at the cost, 19, I find it rather un-inspiring for the centre piece of an army.
If I spend that on an hq model I want it to be dramatic, not as dreary as FW's effort here.
Sad really as I'm a real FW fan for the most part.
My .2pence.
These are my thoughts and opinions.
I am no more right or wrong than you or any other.
I reserve the right to agree/disagree with anything i please, as do you.

In all honesty you could probably do something much nicer with the existing Techmarine model and a couple of Dark Eldar bits. The emitter on the haywire blaster looks particularly tasty, ditto for the regular blaster, so you can either buy a box of Scourges (and use the Scourges themselves for casualties) or bribe a Dark Eldar-playing friend who isn't using his haywire blasters, and use those to build a conversion beamer of your own.

Actually, that gives me an idea...

I'm actually a big fan of less dramatic poses myself, not that I shy away from them.

This is your lucky day then  ;)
Honestly, you couldnt get LESS dynamic than this fig. Sure i dont expect it to be ballet dancing, but standing slump shouldered like a bored teenager?
I dub thee the Kevin and Perry marine!
New FW rules should include:

The moody silent sulk: All units within 6" mill around aimlessly and diss-obey orders!

The Urrrrrgh: Comunications have failed! Reserves are all delayed till next turn!

The "your so NOT funny": The KP marine must move the opposite direction to the rest of your forces!
These are my thoughts and opinions.

Dont forget the 'goodbye forever' (you must use the motfs leadership for everything, or risk losing him, and the 'hormonal teenager' if there are any female models within los of the master, anyone trying to hit him gains +1 ws and bs.

Honestly though, I think it looks alright, im quite a fan of this retro look forge world are going for right now, though it is a bit static.
the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to function the way a soldier is supposed to function -- without mercy, without compassion, without remorse. All war depends on it.

Don't cry for the Happy dead
But weep for those who dread to die.

If you get rid of the whips and have him trying to read an instrument or something then I'd be all over that model.
