Review - Thunderhawk Gunship #2 miniature vehicle from Games Workshop (Forge World)

There are multiple variants of the Forge World Thunderhawk Gunship #2 set. Each of these include the Thunderhawk Gunship #2, plus the indicated insignia, doors and markings.

The pilots come in multiple parts:

  • torso with legs and head
  • arms holding the controls
  • shoulder pads

The two pilot sculpts are very similar. One of them have a pistol on his belt.
