Forge World’s Space Marine Glaive Super-Heavy Tank

This week’s Friday release from Forge World is one nasty Space Marines Super-heavy: the Glaive, described as a  “Super-heavy Special Weapons Tank is a variant of the Fellblade“.

I briefly pinned a picture of the Glaive on

The more I look at it however, the more I come around to doing a short blog post on it. I really like the look of this thing, the sort-of-sci-fi, sort-of-ray-gun weapon, deliciously oversized, on this massive Space Marine tank really makes for a great-looking model.

Forge World at its best! Surely not the worst miniature to test-drive the forthcoming new Warhammer 40K Apocalypse, which (presumably) will be unveiled in the next week or two.

    I love the way the 30k vehicles look more archaic yet much more powerful. This thing is awsome.

    When I first saw the picture you posted for a split second I saw the ghost of the original Rhino model, with the dome turret and all. Clearly it is not, but it does evoke that antique.

    This thing looks bad-@ss. This is what you would get if a Rhino and Land Raider had a child and fed it steroids from birth. I haven’t actually played a game of 40k in years (I have a problem with games where the effective range of a pistol is less than the length of a tank), but this kind of model, with the awesome look it has captured, is the reason I still follow it in the blogosphere.
