    Nice, in my games I decided that the collective noun for a group of battlemages was a "battle conference". You're is a particularly distinguished looking one!

    Sorry, somehow ended up with double post.

    That would be a good approach to take, there are some very characterful models in there, but I do think there is space for essentially "Civilian adventurers" particularly for WFRP, where a character is less likely to be a soldier in a specific army, but probably just a random guy or gal who has ended up over their head somehow.

    That is excellent, I shall look forward to seeing what you've got planned for us! I suspect I already know the answer to this question, but is there any plan for GW to support your RPG with miniature releases? Great as the Warhammer ranges are, they don't lend themselves very well to rag tag bands of adventurers, drawn from various factions and backgrounds. It would be great if GW could put out more sets like the RPG focused Adventurer lines that started it all, so that we've got plenty of options to use. It would be slightly ironic if we end up using figures from Reaper, Otherworlds, or even D&D to play the Warhammer RPGs!

    I'm massively looking forward to this. I've not yet had a chance to play 4e WFRP yet, but i've liked what I've read so far, and the book is beautifully illustrated! I'm very keen to see what you can do with the cosmic scope of the AoS setting. Its a shame that the two RPGs won't be compatible though. What are you're plans to support the games going forwards? You've definitely got the potential for some planescape style realm books for the AoS line, Do you plan to maintain both game lines in parallel, or will the AoS RPG be the flagship? I'd be keen to read sourcebooks for either setting, but would think that there would be a fair bit of overlap when it comes to things like bestiaries, or sourcebooks on the Realm of Chaos.

    The Rumour Thread

    RPGs can take a long time to playtest. If they plan on releasing the game this year, then it wouldn't surprise me at all if the book is largely finished, and they are busy working out the various kinks and bugs with the way abilities and mechanics interact. The core mechanics and the structure of the game has most likely been set in stone for a while, and that's what much of the text will likely be.
  7. True, it seemed particularly disingenuous in that case though, since they were about the scrap the product. I'd think that if they are phasing something out then saying "hey this is last chance to buy, get it now for 10% off" or whatever, would be a solid way to clear their stock. Around the same time a GW person also told me that they hadn't sold any Tomb Kings stock for months, and then had a run on them the moment they were discontinued.
  8. GW's refusal to ever put stuff on sale has always seemed odd to me. I remember just before AoS came out, I was wanting to grab the last few 8th ed army books for my collection and asked the shop keeper whether they would be reduced to clear once the new edition came out. He said that they would stay the same price right up until the end, and then be thrown in the skip if they hadn't sold. The justification for this was that "existing customers would object if people could suddenly get something cheaper than they did", which is a load of rubbish. Most things change prices over their shelf life, and I've never once met someone who said "How dare you have got that book in the 3 for 2 at waterstones when I paid full price for it on release day!" its just not how things work. I guess its an excuse though!

    Its also odd that none of the stuff that's vanished over the last month or so has been listed as "last chance to buy" before hand. There was a point where they seemed to always list stuff like that before it went out of stock, presumably to persuade people to rush out and get it before it was gone. I'm not quite sure when they stopped doing this, but I do seem to recall a couple of times when stuff was removed for re-basing, without being listed as gone for good.

    Wow, that's a great collection, and a truly mighty host!

    New Years (Hobby) Resolutions?

    Its interesting to see how many people are saying "play the game more". I'd kind of thought that most people on here played a lot more than I do, so its somewhat reassuring to see that I'm not the only one making that a goal. As a slight update to my resolution, as of Christmas I have kind of acquired even more Elves, but I also have some Necrons too!

    5000 models must take up a lot of space. I'm pushing five hundred, and have boxes all over the place, I can't imagine what ten times that many would look like!

    Faction predictions for 2019.

    I'm not convinced that Gutbusters are going to be coming soon. I applied for a GW game designer job earlier in the year (didn't get it, but did get an interview). The assessment exercise involved designing a set of allegiance abilities for the Gutbusters, and the interview largely involved discussing the rules, and the game design philosophy behind them. It was strongly implied that it wasn't a faction which they were actively working on, and I got the impression that it wouldn't be coming for a while, or didn't presently have a direction. I didn't get the impression that they were hiring someone with that faction in mind per se, but it wouldn't surprise me if its a bit further ahead than some people are hoping. Its hard to be sure though, clearly they weren't blabbing secrets about the upcoming schedule to all their candidates, and could have been dissembling so that people like me wouldn't immediately run to the net and say "Ogres are coming!" If anyone else on here applied it would be interesting to know whether everyone got the same faction for the assessment, or whether each candidate was given a different one.
