A late Friday night surprise from the guys over at Forge World: Legion MKIV Outriders.
Or, in other words, Forge World’s take on Space Marine bikes.
Unlike a lot of Horus Heresy miniatures, these bikes are (to my knowledge) not a retro-redesign of older (as in.. 1980s, early 1990s) Games Workshop miniatures, but a more original design that give Space Marine bikers a slightly more sci-if, slightly less “biker” feel.
#1 – Forge World Space Marine Bikes
#2 – Games Workshop’s Recent Ravening Bikers
The aesthetic difference to the uber-gothic, detail-encrusted Ravenwing Bikers Games Workshop released couldn’t be more pronounced.
#3 – Thoughts
There is something to be said about a cleaner, more minimal tone (though the upcoming Tau might serve that nicely).
Generally, I enjoy Forge World’s Horus Heresy stuff a lot (though I haven’t bought any of it).
I am not overtly impressed with those Horus Heresy
Bikers Outriders though, especially for GBP 20,- per bike.
What do you think?
