None of them in an official release as the games would get completely messed about with.

I'd like it to be easier to get a game of Epic: Space Marine (not Epic 40K) than it currently is, though.

“The good are quick to help people in need. They do this without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. But before they condemn the accused or bring harm to others, however justified it may seem, they hesitate. They demand proof.”
“The wicked will believe they are fighting for good. But when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”

I'd be right onto Epic if it was re-released. 40K actually makes sense at that kind of scale.

I have to agree with Riquende. My finger is hovering over the the games I like most, but then I realise I still have (what used to be) the LRBs, the minis, more and more great proxy options, and opponents who aren't infected with officialitis and Pokemon syndrome.

In a nutshell, I don't want GW to bring them back because I've already got them, in a pretty good form.

I'd love a version of necromunda that got people excited, I think that has the best chance of being a cool game that actually leads to a lot of play. Deadzone's relative success shows that there is a market for it, as does Inifinity (although on a very different level).

Personally, I'm a huge fan of 10mm fantasy, so I'd love warmaster to make a comeback. It had unusually good minis for the scale, and fun rules.

Necromunda. Highly detailed skirmish games are where it's at for me. It would need some serious updating though.

With Gorkamorka in 2nd place, loved the Mad Max feel of that game.

Necromunda. Though there's really no reason to wait around for GW. Lots of opportunities for proxies and the rules are still free. Our club is starting a campaign next meeting using Yaktribe's "Necromunda Community Edition" (NCE) verison.

Also, Dark Future is not a Specialist game. It's one of many board games (some with minis lines, some without) published by games workshop and then dropped. It was gone for a decade by the time "Specialist games" was formed. If Dark Future is going to be included, there's a host of other games that would need to be also included. Bombers over da sulfur river, Space Hulk, Man o War, Ultramarines, etc...

I think the rules for Dark Future were made available through the specialist games section of the GW for whatever reason. But of a funny choice, maybe it was their way of continuing to claim the IP on it.)

Good point, that's where I first read the rules.

However, I don't think it was anything more than an easter egg. SG certainly never supported the game in any way.

I don't think Specialist Games ever supported Man O War.

The Whole "Specialist Games" thing seems to be confused by an incorrect wikipedia entry that lists most anything other than the core games as a "Specialist Game", when if fact there was a fairly limited number of games that were actually supported (albeit for a limited time) by the "Specialist Games" division. The rest are just other games that GW made at one point.

Specialist games proper was pretty much just:
Blood Bowl
Battle Fleet Gothic
Warmaster
Epic 40k
Necromunda
Mordhiem

Of those, Epic got the most comprehensive support, with a pretty big range of new metals for IG, Marines, Orks, and Eldar.

Yep, that's the list I was working from..
Though to be fair, Necromunda got at least proportional (if not numerical) attention. At least half the gangs got all-new new models, IIRC.

I voted Gorkamorka. Although it doesn't appear to be the most popular choice, nostalgia reminds me how much fun my mates and I had playing it and how interesting (I thought) the sociology of Orks was back then. Furthermore, it was with Gorkamorka that I learned how to drybrush, build terrain and convert stuff. I didn't think much of the Diggas and Muties, though.

Bloodbowl would be a close second.

I love Gorkamorka the most of all, but I voted for BFG, because I think it would be the one that would bring the most enjoyment to the widest variety of gamers. It offers something for fans of every army (basically) and a useful window into the scale of 40K combat that 40K doesn't offer. Epic would be good for the same reason, but if you really want the two ends of the scale, individual soldiers and fleet battles in space kind of bracket the action.

It was actually the name one of the two games that made up each of the first and second editions of Epic. The Space Marine name was used for both editions. Adeptus Titanicus and Titan Legions were the names of the other of the rules for first and second edition respectively.

It was third edition where the entire rules were released in one book called "Epic 40k".
