The Valkir Are Coming


  • Sneak Peak from 2 DEC 22:

    Looks about right:

    And from the WGA release schedule:

     



  • Good catch, glad to see them soon! 


  • So what do the Valkir proxy as if you were to use them in 40k or other games like it?


  • @Charles Tottington probably Firstborn, or Sisters with some work.


  • @Charles Tottington 

    I've seen them used as Sisters of Battle with Statuesque heads.  They looked pretty good.  

    But the most obvious use is Space Marines.


  • I hope so... I wait so long of then... 

    Need more boxes for my troops.


  • @Charles Tottington Only had a few may be 5 at most Warhammer 40,000 games mosty as Guard( only figures we purchased a few) But if you cheak out sone other posts the Valkir have been in my life for some time and I can`t wait for the "New". Besides Iron Core itself, played with Stargrunt and many other rules since including Starship troopers. Figures have proxied in Starwars, Stargate, Primevil, Dredd, Hellgate, and Starship Troopers used with the original Mules to resuply ammo they were great. In original form for Iron Core they were the best. A power armour with terrific fire power there only fault speed, and the fast  run out of ammo, If playing against proxy, Shadowkesh they were canned meat if not supported on the flanks by Eisenkern. They can hold the post firm,  just have mules or some proxy ammo resupplys If you need a breach plugged tight these were the guys to do it in style.


  • There were several sets in the original forms and I`m not sure what we will get but I looking forward to them.


  • As J-Tam shown it looks like the heavy is the one whose weapons are shown. Hope the Assault, and Support, follow soon. Or the set produced is a mix of the three.


  • @Geoff Maybury The assault look perfect for Vanguard Vets, just need to get jump packs.


  • I wonder how many different helmet options they get?


  • @Charles Tottington Very easy to convert to Sisters. Headswap to an unhelmeted female head (Statuesque and Victoria Miniatures are popular) and swap in Space Marine weapons and backpack.

    Backpack swap optional.

  • @Mark Dewis My god man, pure magic, as usual, you actually make a proxy WG figure cool. For a total None Warhammer player I would use those for "Hellgate London" and be in "Heaven". Sorry😉. 


  • @Charles Tottington Thats the million dollar question, we will have to wait and see, the sprue layouts not been shown yet. 


  • Interesting... I've never thought on sisters by the valkyr... I would use GW-sisters for my army but this is much better...

    Ohhhh... that would be a very expensive order by WA... 🤣


  • Any news about the Valkir?


  • Here's hoping to a release before 2024.


  • Here's to hoping that the Valkir end up on the Vox Populi so we can maybe see them next year!


  • Voting is open to select the next to be added to the Vox Populi short list.

    Would be a good time to cast a vote towards Valkir for those interested.


  • Im craving some scifi! heres hoping they get there shot!


  • 149 votes from the Vox Populi vote!  Not a bad showing.


  • much better then I feared! hopefully next time we can rally more support


  • I'm extremely hopeful these come out this year. Outside of GW there's no good (if any, as I really can't find them) plastic power armor infantry on the market. There's a lot of nice resin out there, but that gets expensive in a hurry and has all the problems of dealing with resin.


  • 130 votes this time.  But with 16.1% instead of 14.6% of the vote. Winner took 23.9% of the vote so a good margin of difference.

    Still it was nice to see the interest.


  • I wonder if the loinclothes will be optional pieces? I mean I like them, but I kind of do want them to match up with the rest of my firstborn marines in a way.


  • I remain salty these weren't voted for the next vox populi. But I remain hopeful that they simply get made before the end of the year.


  • I agree that it would be nice to have positive news before 2025.


  • @Charles Tottington in the old Dreamforge kits the loinclothes were seperate pieces


  • @Charles Tottington I just hope they keep the long anti-armor rifles they had in the base set.
