Why are the 700 Thespians that fought to the death alongside the Spartans so often overlooked?  Not quite the same appeal, I suppose.

Spartans had better PR support.

I really hope that next weekend is a mix of AOS and 40K, if not I'd rather it be AOS opening, another weeks wait would be a pain considering it would be almost 2 weeks after the original date. I know with the global situation going on I shouldn't be complaining, it's just a great time to be a gamer.

Lets play the long shots. 

For 40k: exodites and the return of the squats.

For AoS: Formoroids as a full faction and a tease for even more elves.

Specialist games: Battlefleet Gothic.

If Squats come out I would finally after 18 years or so of playing Fantasy/AoS, GW would get me to play 40k

I wonder if GW experiences any shipping delays or flat stops shipping due to the fight against the virus.

Asmodee just suspended product delivery after next week- through the end of April.

My predictions:

AOS:

new Lumineth stuff (all those hammers from the Rumour engines?)

NOT Sons of Behemat ;) 

teasers for a Summer campaign

next season of Underworlds

Scions of the Flame for Warcry

40k:

new .5 edition teasers

whatever’s next in psychic awakening

some sort of final expansion for Blackstone before a new box set comes

other:

new Blood bowl and Titanicus/AI

a new game! Definitely

some vague BS for Old World

AoS: Age of Aelves.

Spin off game in which players can only play Aelves. Starter set sees De'ath Aelves vs Apocalypse Aelves.

 

AoS...GW decides that maybe Nurgle should take a step back for the moment, a move which causes a stark divide amongst the player base.   However, newly revealed Khorne Berzerkers go some way towards molifying fans.

Specialist games tease Dreadfleet III* pitting Aleves against the Plague Fleets of Nurgle. 

 

 

*Apparently DF 2 did so poorly that most of the gaming community had suppressed any knowledge of it.

Yeah, I know they brought back one, but I still think the whole army would be a long shot. So perfect to fight the Zoats in the new 9th edition starter set!

Tyrion and the full lumineth models. Then first SoB video teaser... and maybe lumineth vs other in a new box (I will say ironjaws or savage orruks).

On the 40k side... next PA and the new Necron lord.

Malerions Aelves I would wager has at most a mention of something later on, with the Sons all but confirmed I doubt they would announce 2 brand new armies, maybe at Warhammer Fest.

Savage Orruks would be perfect for a battle box.

I just hope the Lumineth will be fully revealed on the first event, and be available for preorder from the following day. 

We have been drip-fed for along time, and dragging this further on doesn’t make much sense. 

If GW doesn’t release them soon likely they won’t be able to ship anything out anymore. Might be too late already. 

They could focus on something else for AoS on the second event.

I would say that they're ready to go with the Lumineth,  though with the global pandemic I could see later releases postponed so perhaps other things they were going to unveil will be kept hidden as to keep the masses banging on the door.

I think that releases that are already planned like Lumineth and Behemat (we have seen transport logs to US) won't be postponed if anything that could speed them up but pandemic might hit future releases with potential closure of factories and transport chain problems involving China, where spells, terrain etc are manufactured.

A lot of it varies. 

 

1) Provided GW's bulk shipments (mostly sent by ship if I recall right rather than aircraft) of stock can make it around the world then local territories can at least have stock from the GW website if not distributed to local stores.

2) Mail order - provided specific country mail order services remain active this side can still function for both GW and 3rd party stores. However it might come about that specific countries get a release, but mail has to sit in waiting until local postal services resume. This might mean a lot of people waiting on orders, although stock should be a known quantity.

3) Factory production in China - this isn't just for the plastics, which GW could leave out. But also for print books, cards, tokens, boxes and such. A shutdown on boxes GW might get around by using domestic stock of white boxes for a time or even drop to regular card and just use plastic wallets. However losing out on things like books would shut down any new codex/battletome related releases. 

4) GW's UK factory. It might be forced to shut or staff might have to work from home - so deisgn work could continue, but the actual factory might have to shut down entirely. Of course this stops all production chances of anything and is a full closure. 

 

I suspect GW's stance might be led by the UK market. So as long as that functions the other territories will still get release shipments, notifications etc... It might mean some limited production run items get held up for some countries/regions. It might even be that GW does away with short term limits - eg committing to produce a lot more duel sets rather than just one big production run - so that overseas territories are not left out. 

 

However there's lots of bits that make the whole global system work and its all in chaos at present. It's also very apt to change suddenly and without warning. 

That said GW is in a healthy position sitting on many years of good profits and very little in the way of actual debts. So they can likely ride this out quite well. Highstreet rents might be an issue, but quite a lot of landlords are waving/delaying payments on them in light of the current situation. Plus governments are making some funds accessible for stores stuck, though I'm not sure if GW would qualify as they are quite a big retailer.

100% agree.
