vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

BUMP: Hrud are apparently getting an army. These are from two people who've been right before as rumour sources, so it looks legit.

QUOTE
Will probably be a white dwarf teaser list and then a full codex. Look out for hints in upcoming WD's
-The Umbra WILL be in the army
-There will be at least one vehicle described as a tunneler modified for war (tunneling rules a la trygon perhaps?)
-They have units named/such as Triads, Blades, Shamans, Paths
-They are described as a 'steamroller' type force withe tactic such as 'shoot retreat shoot , ambush'
-Background-wise they are described as an ancient race that are pissed because they lost their homeworld to slaanesh, the umbra are said to be fragments of their God (Q'ah) that was destroyed by Slaanesh. They hate Chaos with a passion.

It's funny how suddenly there's been so many rumours. Either the one about sixth edition triggered everyone making up their own to cash in on the craze, or something's changed inside GW.

That said, new stuff is always good, so I hope at least some of it is true.

GW have implmented a new rumour crackdown. They believe that it'd be better if people only knew about new releases when White Dwarf ships, to the extent they're no longer going to ship subscribers their copies before they appear in stores.

This ludicrous secrecy seems to have pissed a lot of insiders off.

The logic seems to be that people will go to a GW store to buy WD, see the new releases there for the first time and be so overwhelmed with how awesome they are they'll buy them on the spot.

The fact that WD is really poor nowadays, so it's probably just easier to not buy it at all and hence not go to the store either has not passed GW's mind. They seem to think Space Hulk being secret was really successful, while ignoring two key points - 1) Space Hulk as a really badly kept secret, and everyone knew about it 9 months before it was "officially" annouced and 2) People panic bought Space Hulk because it was really good and a one off limited run that there was a significant danger they'd completely miss it. Not beacuse they were surprised by it.

Not exactly like its easy to get GW in some places anyway. I've been in three stores which carry the stuff, one stopped, I haven't visited the other in an age (and will probably never again.) and the third is the ONLY GW official store in the province. I want to say their making it hard, but I've never seen any mini's other than the stuff for model train sets.

I wonder if GW is going to evolve in the face of mounting competition from Privateer and Manitac?

There isn't a GW store within 200 miles of me, and if they crack down harder on the indys, that will mean no GW product within 200 miles of me (always the internet, of course).

I doubt it. They, and the management in particular, have a rather inflated opinion of the company (To the point of describing third-party retailers, people who sell their products, as "freeloaders"). Yes, they're the big fish in the small pond, but their market share in North America, the sweet-spot for this sort of thing, is being torn apart by Privateer Press and Flames of War.

That's what I've heard.

I'm thinking GW is going to stay the course, steadily increasing prices until The Hobbit comes out. After the sales bump from that goes away. Panic.

Hrud would be nifty, if just to have new alien miniatures to play with.

Would anyone mind if we use this thread as more of a "general wargaming" thread rather than purely 40k? I don?t want to feel like I?m hijacking this thread whenever I mention something else, so I thought I?d ask.

Not that I don?t intend to contribute to the subject matter of 40k:



With Warpath coming soon I?m also readying my futuristic forces.

Same here, though I seem to buy lots of rulebooks.

Warpath rules look nice. I like the "ally" abilities. With only the little scraps of background, I'm already liking the setup more then 40K's rrrgrrghrgkilleverythinggrrrhrfhelvenyearoldrages.

So the new Warhammer stuff. I want to like the terrain, but it looks like Hot Topic clearance merch. The Eternity Stair could be cool, but it's covered in the usual GW crap details.

Though the throne thingy looks nice in purple, in a castle-greyskull kinda way.

Alright, just came back from Mantic?s open day. It was a fun ordeal, but the long hours of driving should best not be mentioned.
Kings of War will be re-realesed this year, ending the open beta. Some rules will be clarified, some stats changed around and the number of armies goes up to 8 (dark elves, goblins and humans will be the new armies). The five existing army lists will be expanded, it was said that 100+ new units will be added to the game all in all.

The rules will still be free for download and remain free, with a small booklet of the rules (about A5) available for free in the starter sets and from Mantic for a few quid, for those who?d like a printed copy.

A proper rulebook is planned for next year, with more background story, miniature photographs, artworks, the core rules and army lists but also optional rules for magic, siege, mass battles, scenarios and the likes. However, which optional rules will make it into the book is still up in the air, they are very much still tossing ideas around on that.

There will be a new core game box, called "Morgoth Rising", again featuring the undead and dwarfs, with balanced armies inside, to have the box serve as a stand-alone game.

Mantic had dark elves on display to show the upcoming conversion kit. They looked good, but they are going to be metal/plastic hybrid kits. If you didn?t like the regular elves, these won?t do it for you either.

We got a sneak peak at some Warpath stuff, forgefather resin master casts for character models that will be available in metal and finished concept drawings of the first two vehicle plastic kits. The metal figures will be awesome, the masters look exactly like the concept art.
There were some very early design sketches of Warpath vehicles seen on the web. Thoe were just random ideas scribbled down and the finished concepts have nothing in common with those. They are friggin?awesome.
If the plastic kits for the vehicles and infantry can deliver what the concepts promised, like the metal figures already did, then Warpath will be an awesome line of miniatures.

Marauders are supposed to be released in October, with the Forgefathers following in November (IIRC, it?s late and I?m tired). There will be a starter set, with vehicles and troops, supposedly balanced armies... akin to the Kings of War one.


And not as newsworthy, but dear to me: My first model for Mantic will soon enter production and then see a release. I?m really excted and can?t wait.
