Remember this guy from Games Day 2011?
I did recently, then realised he never actually got released. I've never actually e-mailed Forge World before now but I've heard that they're generally good with responding quite honestly with a real human actually typing rather than a copy and paste auto-response with your name added in.
So I sent them the following e-mail:
Just a quick question.
I remember seeing a year or so ago a WIP model of 'Brann Redmaw" I believe for the Space Wolves - I'm just wondering what ever happened to him? Was the model scrapped in the end?
Also I notice there isn't much of a selection of Space Wolf-specific items in general from Forge World - What did the Fenrisians do to annoy you guys? ;)
To which I recieved the following response (within 2 hours!):
You will see more Space Wolf pieces once they appear in our Horus Heresy book."Hi <Bayonet>,Thank you for your email. Work was started on a Bran Redmaw model, but it was never finished and work on it stopped and the model scrapped. There are currently no plans to begin work on a new one.
If there is anything further we can do to assist you, or if you have any queries about the information we have requested or provided, please telephone us.Forge World"
So there you have it, Brann Redmaw is destined for wherever resin concept models go when they die. Sad news for me as an avid Space Wolves fan as I quite liked the early design! Other Wolves fans will have to sit tight until the release of the Horus Heresy book that covers Prospero I imagine.
