  1. The Rumour Thread

    Ultimately I believe GW's strategy is to convert every existing finecast model that they have use for to plastic, and slowly ditch the rest. It's pretty obvious that GW HQ qants to go all-plastic for its mainline units. This has been happening since fantasy 6th ed. Slowly they've been phasing out metal kits, then finecast. Whilst ancient plastic sets remain. I don't think we've seen a plastic kit remade since... Tactical marines? I also think GW generally wants to make new kits than remake old ones. There's more money in it, and that is ultimately what counts. Exception being when the difference in model quality and the upgraded model' sales potential is high enough, as with Nurgle.
  2. The Rumour Thread

    I actually have a Black Coach ready to get converted. I doubt we'll see a new version of it specifically. GW doesn't seem to be in the mood for redesigning existing models, generally speaking. I guess the Nurgle release sorta disproves that. But then again, the black coach is a nobody model, plague marines are a much bigger deal. The Black Coach he heard about is much more likely to be a completely new model in the vein of a coach.
  3. The Rumour Thread

    High and Dark elves are dead. No more. New Elves will be something completely different, whilst keeping minor design elements of the previous factions (see Duardin).
  4. The Rumour Thread

    True! I was mostly thinking about Mortals though. But add the Pestilens and even the Daemons, and Nurgle has a very solid selection of troops. I just feel that Khorne and Tzeench got a better hand, with thematic chaff and elites. Khorne especially having a great selection of foot troops.
  5. The Rumour Thread

    Let's keep this to rumours guys. No more talk about your store experiences, unless it's also rumour/upcoming release related. In rumour news, we've got a picture displaying the full Nurgle range. Key takeaways, Nurgle has a bajillion heroes, but little in the way of troops. Looks like Chaos will be relying on Slaves to Darkness to fill the ranks for the foreseeable future.
  6. The Rumour Thread

    Fun Fact: GW store employees almost never know anything in advance. Only if they have contacts or are prepping for a Major release (like 40k) will GW actually tell them beforehand what's going on. So make that grain of salt extra big and salty.
  7. The new and final version of Battletome: The End Times is finished! There's so much I could say about this. And I will update the blog later. But for now, here's the links to the tome and ALL its parts. I also made a trailer, so please enjoy that! That's all of them! As a bonus, here's a screensaver! It's just a silly little thing, but I figured that since I have the files it'd be fun. Thanks for reading!

    What you do in your own time is fine by me. Be aware that these are designed for web though, not for print. Not certain if these releases will look any good printed. Thank you! I hope you're inspired to paint something. Or even better, play!

  10. Battletome: Archaon

    Version 1.0.0


    This is the final tome in the collection. Battletome: Archaon covers the final moments of the World-That-Was. This is really where the whole sage ends. Archaon the Everchosen shows why he's called Lord of the End Times. It contains no Time of War rules, but compensates with 11 battleplans, many of them quite complex. It also has a Mighty Battles campaign, "Plague and Death", no points for guessing who's involved in that!
  11. Battletome: Thanquol

    Version 1.0.0


    This is the fourth tome in the End Times series of campaign books. The Skaven unleash their endless hordes, and the empires of Dwarfs and Lizardmen fall. There would be no coming back from this. Here you will find 6 battleplans detailing the fall of Lizardmen and Dwarfs, as well as Thanquol's shining moment! The Time of War "Realms of the Lizardmen" is also included, as is the Mighty Battles campaign "The Doom of Belegar".
  12. Battletome: Khaine

    Version 1.0.0


    Khaine is the third part of the End Times saga. This was the turning points in more ways than one, as the massive conflict between the High Elves and Dark Elves was resolved, and the enigmatic Wood Elves were brought back into the fold. This is another shorter battletome with another 7 battleplans. It contains a single Time of War, "The Great Vortex Weakens" and a Mighty Battles campaign, "The Return".
  13. Battletome: Glottkin

    Version 1.0.0


    Battletome: Glottkin is part 2 of the End Times books. This is the original appearance of the Glottkin, a trio who would return again and again to plague the Mortal Realms. Where Nagash focused on the Undead, this tome is set squarely in the Empire, with Karl Franz taking center stage. Among the shorter tomes, it contains 6 battleplans for your to play. In addition, it has the "Chaos Ascendant" and "Streets of Death" Time of War rules and the "Conquest of the Tentacle Lord" Mighty Battles campaign.
