And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance –just one chance! –to come back here and tell Games Workshop that they may take our hard earned cash but what we really fancy...is a reprint of that old game thats now out of print!

Seriously, what old game - doesn't have to be by GW - would you jump at the chance to own? Was it a game you missed out on, or was it one where you owned it many moons ago but was so cruely parted from? Was your obsession to have a copy of the game so great that you even tried to make your own version from scratch?

Magic the Gathering: "Beta" or "Unlimited" sets.
Because I want others to be able to enjoy actual P9 cards & original duel lands - without resorting to printing proxies or having to sell a kidney or something for a scrap of cardboard.

Other than that, you know what?
Between an extensive Minis/Board/RPG collection of my own, a decent sized circle of friends with sizable collections, the internet, & 3D printing - I can't really think of any.
I don't really count printing files as "making it myself".

Wonderful answer!

Me? I dunno. The original Aeronautica maybe? The rewrite is worse than Dreadfleet.

The starship troopers game. Missed it whilst out of the hobby, and loved the one and only game I had of it.

I'd also like to see a working edition of sedition wars available, as it had a lot of potential.

MGP really butchered certain aspects of that game, but I have to agree with you. I played it heavily, and can't remember a more free-flowing and fun table top experience!

I'd also like to see Vor, Western Front Tank Leader, and Air Cav reprinted.

At least the bits from before the prequels and the fact Decipher knew they were losing the licence sent it all a bit bonkers, agreed.

Epic is by far and away the game I desire to see returned followed very closely by Battlefleet Gothic.

Outside of GW? Honestly, Sedition Wars. Yeah the Kickstarter and boxed games rules were a disappointment for many but the miniature designs and overall aesthetic I really enjoyed. I would love to have seen the Firebrand fleshed out. Shame really...

Hmm for me I don't really want to see "reprint" but rather "remakes" because for the games I want to see back there have been such strides in the market and technology that I wouldn't really want whole armies of the old models.


1) Epic+Titan Legions - we are slowly getting there, I can see it happening but not for some years. Even if we don't get there I really hope to see Xenos titans in Adepticus Titanicus.

2) Man O War - revamped for Age of Sigmar. Because sea games are rare and about the only sea ship fantasy game since Man O War was Uncharted Seas which died a death and likely will remain dead for very very very many more years (WC have good designers, but they take a long time to bring a game back to the market). Which I guess is me saying Man O War or Uncharted Seas

3) Space Hulk. I've missed this 3 times, mostly because every time it comes around again I'm in a "I'm not playing Warhammer/nids" mode. I'd love to see it come back, but not as a one-shot game; but as a proper continuing game. Much like Blackstone/Warhammer Quest.

4) Rackhiem - I really like the model designs and style that they had going with that game. It's a huge shame its basically been a dead duck for a long while and it seems the company that currently holds it can't even run a company without failing (SD seems to have a lot of directors of other failed sister companies.....).

This would be great with the GSC range as strong as it is now. Maybe an expansion for Tau with Stealth suits or Breachers. Grey Knight Termies vs Demons...many possibilities.

Two were with Agents of Gaming, in two scales. Mongoose made the third game, but mostly kept the same miniatures as B5 Wars. Mostly.

Oh, and I think they made a 28mm B5 range, too, but never saw them in the flesh.

Right there with you. Beyond the very well played sets I have on hand for casual play, there's no shortage of ridiculous stuff salted away in my own safety deposit boxes.

But it's got nothing to do with wanting more for myself or others who're already set.

How could you have not seen it? B5 Wars is pretty clunky but ACTA and Fleet Action are both great, there was an epic scale ground game as well (GROPOS) but I have no idea if it was any good.

Starship Troopers (Mongoose), because of the superb rules and the great arachnid models. Got many of the models (and the basic game a few times), but some are missing and expensive to get.

Alien vs. Predator (Prodos). Love the style and many of the models. Customer support sucked, though.

Space Crusaders (Prodos). Missed out on some of the cringey and not cringey models I wanted, because I had a huge order cancelled by a 3rd party shop just before the sale was put down. Customer support was a little dodgy (same company as AvP).

I always had two of those from GW:

• Space Hulk (thanks, I was in the loop because played 40k at the time the rerelase dropped, so now I'm good!)

• Advanced Space Crusade (a quirky game that played a bit like a hybrid between 40k and Space Hulk. It had some wonderful rules mechanisms, was AP based. I have missed it dearly since I last played it)

As tyranids, GSC and Space Marines have become much more fleshed out since the original ASC, I bet it would make for even a more interesting game now! IIRC you could even have guard if you played the Imperium..

There were two. First small scale one where each ship was VERY detailed and 5 vs 5 would take long time.

Later in 2000's Mongoose Publishing got rights to game and existing model line from previous company(though that company was allowed to sell existing stock and seems they cast TONS of stuff in advance to the effect you could still order stuff from them YEARS after the deal...And was one way to get fighters that were individual models. Mongoose went for stand of many small fighters) and made more of fleet sized game where you could have easily 10+ ships plus fighters.

Minbari were terror indeed. And shadow vessels became fittingly scary when they introduced "armageddon" level point values(incidentally it worked so that you chose game size and points for that so like 5 raid or 5 battle or 3 battle. Each ship cost 1 something and bigger values could be split to lower values. So 1 battle could take 2 raid(I think). You could split raid into 2 skirmish or was it 3 patrol. I think you could only split one of the split ones).

So it was patrol - skirmish - raid - battle - something - armageddon. So for shadow vessel you could split it to 2 something and then split the other to 2 battle etc.

Might misremember something.

Interesting system that made bigger stuff relatively cheaper/pricier depending on game size. Though generally favoured cheap stuff(but alternative actions was also to blame. If you had twice the ships you generally benefitted. Especially vs fleet that was based on boresight(straight ahead) weapons since only way you could get lined up was to aim at ship that had already moved...This was annoying because it hurt in particular 2 iconic vessels. The narn heavy cruiser(G'Quan) and Omega class destroyer from show! Both being battle and needing some cheap activations to get their main guns pointing to target...)

Ah yes that one was fun too though for arachnids steep learning curve it seems(or we just sucked ).

Incidentally some store got right to cast and sell some stuff so for example one of the power armour suits and the light infantry could be bought. I actually thought they were recasting and contacted Matt but he confirmed it's legit.

The other scale is War (patrol, skirmish, raid, battle, war, armageddon).

Originally the system was released with one point higher buys two lower, ie. 1 skirmish point buys you 2 patrol whilst 1 raid would buy you 6 patrol. This was later changed to a far better system where 1 skirmish buys 2 patrol but one raid buys three patrol ships. This prevents spamming and initiative sinking to the ridiculous levels of the original.

Right war. Thanks.

Yeah the original splitting was even worse but even new one wasn't perfect and this was compounded by AA(see? AA isn't holy grail ) which in turn was compounded with boresight weapons. At worst you had stuff like one omega cruiser vs 2 smaller ships. In theory good nice game. In practice if small ships were split you got one shot with main guns half the time and then you didn't get any until your secondaries took out other(which could be hard. secondaries weren't THAT powerful). And that's assuming smaller ship isn't manouverable enough to stay out of front anyway.

So you needed initiave sinks. A lot. As it is for narn's it was the skirmish level ships that were the king. G'quan was not that good(well the bigger games helps them as the split system did have advantage of favouring bigger ships in bigger games. 5 battle was different to 10 raid despite nominally being "same")

For Space Hulk, Deathwing should be a given due to their origin story - painting their armour white before liberating their homeworld from a gene-cult. Thats quite a grudge the DW has against the slobby-chops!

Track That Target order is your friend, makes boresight weapons fore (or aft) arc against nominated target. Also Narn skirmish ships (bar the Thentus) suck, raid is where its at!

I bought into the ill-fated Hero Quest reboot because I wanted a "lighter" boardgame version of a dungeon crawl for my (at the time...7 year old?) nephew. He's now 13, but could still enjoy that kind of intro game.

Thunder Road!!! Got the chance to play that at a Con before the lockdown, and it was as fun as it was 30 -some years ago.

2nd place would be to FASA Star Trek combat simulator. Not for the game, but that they had some great miniature models that are impossible to find.

3rd place would be Epic. I still have a small collection, but would like to have easy and supported access to the models and rules.

I unfortunately have a copy of Sky Galleons. The models are gakmy, brown blobs and would need a serious modern revision (and it would help if they were up scaled). Leviathans is a much, much better quality and rendition of this game.

OMG, Thunder Road is a strong candidate for a reprint. Technically the first "minis" game I played, and much appreciation for my Aunt for buying it for my brother and I back in the late 80s. Loved the continuous-board-swtiching thing it had going on...sigh. Y'know, a few models from Dropzone Commander's reistance range would be swanky stand-ins, and the boards should be easy enough to whip up, leaving just a stand-in for the wreaks....hmmm. I think I might give that a try and do a thread here, when I get some free time.

People tend to forget that Space Hulk worked well because it involved two asymmetric forces combined with a tightly written ruleset. That was what made it a classic. It started to break down, and even outright suck when you added non Terminator and non Genestaler forces and ranged combat on both sides. Be careful what you wish for. While I agree the game should be available, skip the expansions. They were horrible.

Well, Armageddon did draw its map and most of its campaign details/history from Operation Barbarossa, Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. So by default, it can't help but feel like a WW2 campaign, or Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812, as that is what it was largely based on.

I've got the rules somewhere, with White Line Fever and the other expansion, really just needs the track making and Gaslands models using - would just like a reprint with a reasonable range of models and ideally plastic track sections

would be ideal as a boxed game with a couple of expansions, doesn't need a massive range, especially if they went something like 1:72, you sell the game, the box set, counters, track, the basic cars then have a range of "upgrade packs" for conventional model kits

or just go 40k scale for wacky races

Following up a thought from another thread on Rogue Trader; it would be great if GW released it again but as a game for those not interested in competitive play, but simply as an excuse for some major kitbashing to cover factions that would be too awkward for regular 40K or other games.

Y'know the sort; gang warfare, planetary governers fighting uprisings, Eldar pirates and savages enjoying their unsavory and barbaric hobbies, Inquisitors being their usual charming selves and freighter crews repelling boarders or hunting down that large drooling stowaway...

Lordy, wasn't that back in the Rogue Trader days when they added Eldar, Harlequins, Space Marines and Orks? So they say, anyway...

To be honest, I doubt it would ever get that far with Space Hulk. They seem to chuck out a new print every so years.

You might be thinking of Advanced Space Crusade. I only remember the Death Wing and Genestealer additions. Death Wing was okay (appearance of Lightning Claws, Thunderhammer and the like), but with Genestealer, it went off the rails with the psychic sub game and the various hybrids with weapons.

To be honest Advanced Space Crusade was a complete mystery to me save for owning the "Terminators & Tyranids" set. Something to do with scouts storming a hive ship.

I think I might have seen it in the Space Hulk Bible on the net - maybe it was a fan thing?

Throw in another vote for Epic, though hopefully with a bit less madness. We don't need ork bubble chucker templates and Cheesey Eldar Weapon Phases. more focus on man and tanks, less on crazy oddball weapons.

And of course Space Fleet, for the crazy ship designs.



d6 Star Wars also has a place in my heart.

The problem with the Genestealer expansion for Space Hulk was the addition of hybrids with big guns, taken from the old Chaos heavy weapon sprue. It turned the game into ‘Fragile hybrid steps out. Marine overwatch usually splatters said hybrid. If by a miracle it should miss or jam, hybrid splatters you with conversion beamer.’ Boring!

The problem with Deathwing was the psychic rules were horribly overpowered, routinely cleansing entire room sections with ease. Game over man, game over. Boring!

And don’t even get me started on the lousy additions from White Dwarf like Space Marines, Orks, etc. Yeah, it was great idea to send in the Imperial Guard to face ‘stealers in close quarters. Such fun when the stealers roll 3D6 in close combat and you were rolling 1D6-3... made for a lot of tense moments...Not!

In short, pretty much everything Space Hulk other than the base game and extra Terminator v. Genestealer missions and campaigns were poorly thought out and executed.

Hmm for me I don't really want to see "reprint" but rather "remakes" because for the games I want to see back there have been such strides in the market and technology that I wouldn't really want whole armies of the old models.


1) Epic+Titan Legions - we are slowly getting there, I can see it happening but not for some years. Even if we don't get there I really hope to see Xenos titans in Adepticus Titanicus.


Same for me!

But if nothing else, I'll be happy to continue playing Space Marine/Titan Legions using the new Titans - IF they eventually release new correctly scaled Xenos Phantoms, Warlocks and Gargants!


4) Rackhiem - I really like the model designs and style that they had going with that game. It's a huge shame its basically been a dead duck for a long while and it seems the company that currently holds it can't even run a company without failing (SD seems to have a lot of directors of other failed sister companies.....).


I'd also LOVE to see Confrontation return - for real, legitimately, sustainably, with the same art direction and miniature sculpting style from the 3.0/3.5 days...

Battlefleet Gothic has a surprisingly lively fanbase. While the minis are out of print, they’re not exactly out of...printing. It’s going to be really weird when GW brings it back only to charge $30 a cruiser and find out half the market is already glutted with ships that cost a fraction of that.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason. The old plastic cruisers were awesome kits and I'd be happy to pick them up if they went back in print. But the fact is everything in the BFG library has a free STL file these days. Not everyone can or wants to print a fleet, but they're out there.

I imagine that's the reason for the rumored Battle Fleet Heresy game.

Honestly unless SD goes belly up (and actually belly up not just shifting to another firm...) and sells it on I think Rackhiem is dead. Even if they've good faith they just seem incompetent.


I'd say best bet is to look at Signum. It's got the same art and sculpting style

https://signumgames.com

The only black spot against it is that its made by recasters who had been making Rackhiem for years since it went out of print (though they did pull sales when SD started selling it again - for the most part). It's one of those rare cases where a recaster is actually putting back into the hobby and business wise they seem far more trustworthy than SD.

It’s a shame. If they came out with plastic cruisers now, or better for them a year and a half ago when Dropfleet was at its lowest, hey could have captured that market instead of losing it near permanently. Heck, if they just priced their cruisers reasonably (like $15 or maybe $20 for a fully loaded cruiser sprue, twice the price of BFG 1st edition plastics), I bet they still could. If they come out swinging with the kinds of prices I expect, they.’ll just kill their brand even faster.


For comparison, Dropfleet Commander had a resurgence when Battle for Earth came out and still has momentum. Their plastic kits come to roughly $15 per cruiser before discounts—but each cruiser sprue comes with a ton of optional bits. People make whole battlegroups of lighter craft from the leftover bits in a starter set. The value is there in the plastic kits. The only 3D printed Dropfleet things I’ve seen were base inserts, sector tokens, that kind of thing.

I'm sure that lots of GW customers know nothing about the garage-business of selling BFG-type ships.
I'm constantly amazed by the amount of people that love Epic and still play but don't know anything about Vanguard miniatures, Onslaught etc. and the host of other companies making miniatures compatible with that game. None of it is particularly well marketed and is very much a niche gaming corner.
So if an 'official' release came out and got similar treatment to Necromunda or Adeptus Titanicus, I'm sure it would sell very well.
TBH I shouldn't think GW care much or even know about those resin prints on Shapeways, it's probably just a case of finding a gap in the schedule and then at some point BFG will make a re-appearance (hopefully with a nerf of the Eldar power ! )

This is all true.. although I still enjoyed Deathwing for some of the extra weapons, and the campaign (which went along with the awesome Bill King short story) was worth the price of that boxset.

=][= certainly needs a reprint, as does Mordheim.

As for non GW games- Vor: The Maelstrom. They attempted a reboot just before the time Kickstarters were a licence to print money for tabletop games. Nothing since and not sure why it hasn't been attempted again.

Void. The game that got me out of the GW ecosystem. Such a good game and so much in its groundwork was to what a lot of people believe 40k "should" be today (D10s, alternate activation etc.) This one is actually on the verge of happening though as Scotia Grendel (who currently own the molds) are in the process of transferring them to Seb Games who want to reboot the game too.

Lastly. Relic Knights. Currently stuck in Kickstarter purgatory. Pretty good game with a good concept and a unique look. Please, Ninja Division- just sell the bloody game to CMON or something and they can produce it.

I find the Space Station kit to be every bit as rich and flexible for building kitbashes. The Resistance starter and the Space Station kit are the two Dropfleet kits I would recommend to everyone who loves building spaceships.

That said, the PHR kit is amazing for kitbashing kinda-Battlefleet Gothicish-Imperial-style ships, with cruiser- and light cruiser-sized prows (troop carrier and f(n) weapon armor, respectively), tons of broadside weapons, and tons of “lances”.

Mine are all GW as I never got into non-GW board gaming until later in life.

First for me is Epic. Sadly, I think this is the least likely to come back. I know some people see Adeptus Titanicus as heralding the return of Epic but I think Geedbus will maintain that as it's own self contained game. GW doesn't want anything that could potentially eat into the sales of their main line models and would prefer people play Epic sized games at 28mm using battle systems like Apocalypse, as ludicrous and expensive as that is. I believe that's why Epic was allowed to die in the first place.

Second is Battlefleet Gothic. I am a lot more hopeful for this one as there is a big following and the recent computer games will have drummed up some additional interest. However, I get the sneaking suspicion it will not be set during the Gothic War and will be set in the Horus Heresy like Adeptus Titanicus meaning we will only see Imperial and renegade ships and no xenos ships.

Space Hulk as a game that receives continual support and expansions and not a limited edition thing that comes out once a decade. I think this one is fifty fifty. On the one hand, we've seen the resurrection of Necromunda which uses it's own Forge World models, but on the other hand it seems Kill Team is going to get killed off by the new "scaleable" version of 9th. it's another avenue to sell mainstream plastic models, but also could possible be perceived as treading on the toes of 9th edition Combat Patrol (even though it should be a different game). I feel that the idea behind the scaleability of 9th is to bring all the mainstream plastic models under one system, with specialist games being solely the domain of Forge World models. There's definitely demand for Space Hulk The last time it came out it sold out within 24 hours online.

While I agree the game should be available, skip the expansions. They were horrible.


Lordy, wasn't that back in the Rogue Trader days when they added Eldar, Harlequins, Space Marines and Orks? So they say, anyway...

To be honest, I doubt it would ever get that far with Space Hulk. They seem to chuck out a new print every so years.

You might be thinking of Advanced Space Crusade. I only remember the Death Wing and Genestealer additions. Death Wing was okay (appearance of Lightning Claws, Thunderhammer and the like), but with Genestealer, it went off the rails with the psychic sub game and the various hybrids with weapons.


Yupp, Advanced Space Crusade had rules for many factions & models.

IMHO, Space Hulk was at its best with Deathwing expansion + power armoured marines (rules & campaing was on some white dwarf issue IIRC). Genestealer introduced those ridiculous cards and shooting genestealers, ended up changing things too much and effectively ruined the game.

Perhaps the psyker rules in deathwing were OTT, but those could be easily toned down.. Everything else worked pretty well.

The reissue rules are pretty faithful to the og rules, except for the "bracing" action that marines can now do.. Not sure I like it as it gives marines extra handicap in CC (and marines were deliberately much worse in CC than stealers, its why the game worked!)

Starship Troopers was such a great game and a shame it didn't persist, it almost felt like a prototype Infinity in terms of how the units reacted to each other, I think was quite ahead of its time.

Hook, line, sinker, and a copy of Angling Times there, sir.
It's funny to think now but at one time Epic was one of the big three. I still remember going into stores and seeing 40k, WHFB and Epic each on their own section of the wall.
But, like you say, that 'scale' of combat is now taking place at 28mm, and people that want to collect entire tank companies, titans etc. have to do it in that scale. Even though really the 6mm was soooooo much better suited (and I don't think it's controversial to say the rules, for both Space Marine and Epic: Armageddon, worked better too).
Another reason is the volume of SKUs, can you imagine how much work it would be to get even 50% of the 40k lineup into 6 or 8mm scale? It would take a massive effort on behalf of the design studio, not to mention the increased size of catalogue, distribution to retailers etc.
The other 'Specialist' games have a much more confined scope in terms of miniature range - most importantly, they don't impinge on the existing 'core' ranges of 40k and WHFB, but rather supplement them (you can buy a Warcry warband before moving into AoS, etc.)

I totally get remaking the entire 40k range in Epic scale would be a huge and potentially risk investment for Geedubs. It's a pity they didn't use the Horus Heresy to "bring back" Epic. The scale seems to fit the setting more and there's essentially only one range they would have to make (Space Marines).

Eh for a years GW was using Epic models to make 40K ideas and concepts - so they did it once. The only area that Epic might have less variety is in troops because they are ever so much smaller and not as easily told apart. Vehicles and such they had a huge bounty of.

Yeah, put me on the list of people not remembering anything inherently wrong with BFG, so a straight reprint would be more than adequate. make a boxed sprue that allows you to make, say 4 ships of various builds, 1 of each major size class, for each race and you'd have a solid winner.

Now as far as MODELS I'd like to see reprinted? I think the frames from all the starter sets would be an immediate port of call. Instant vs. battle in a box, give it a palatable price point, and off to the races you go.

That's a great idea to re-launch the Horus Heresy. Like you say full-circle, and would tie in nicely with Adeptus Titanicus too.

I'm kind of doing that off my own efforts using Vanguard Miniatures (which look suspiciously like old-armour mark marines!) but it would have been nice to have something official, even if it would have made it somewhat less affordable!

I'd definitely put Dark Future at the top of my list.

More generally, I do wonder whether it will be another year or so before boardgames look like promising prospects, from the point of view of a miniatures/gaming company like GW. In countries like the US, at least, it will be some time before I game live in the same room with my gaming buddies. I do foresee continuing to buy new 40k kits to model and paint and so on over the next year to feed my gaming/hobby habit -- largely out of momentum (I'm already deeply invested, in terms of both $ and imagination, in the grim distance of the far future), and because I can do this at home by myself.

But I don't see myself doing as much in-person or in-store gaming for the foreseeable future. And accordingly, I doubt I will be making as many boardgame purchases as I normally do -- presumably for a period as long as the next year or two. From GW's perspective (and possibly from the perspective of certain other companies), it might make more sense to hold off on launching a new miniatures boardgame line (e.g., a project on the scale of a venture of, say, Warcry) until late 2021-22. Just from the perspective of resource allocation v. revenue, I mean.

Or maybe this fear is country-specific to the US, where the curve ain't flattening for some time to come.

I miss the 90's "solid content" of most of their board games.


I always wondered what finally came of that kickstarter.

I'm sure that lots of GW customers know nothing about the garage-business of selling BFG-type ships.
I'm constantly amazed by the amount of people that love Epic and still play but don't know anything about Vanguard miniatures, Onslaught etc. and the host of other companies making miniatures compatible with that game.


I have loads of Vanguard stuff waiting to be painted. Lovely creations. I would vote for epic to return, but I would cringe if GW released great plastics that were out of scale to my vanguard collection. I'm too picky about stuff matching.

I probably dreamt it but I think someone makes a reasonable version. Off to search.

Of course another vote for Epic, I loved that game and it made so much sense to play large battles in that scale then move to 40K for raids and small actions.

I would also like to see Warhammer Historical return, Warhammer Ancient Battles and Warmaster Ancients. I still play both regularly but it is difficult to get new players when the supplements are in such short supply.

PS also the Decipher Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game, it was much better than the FFG one.

Yes me too.. I've actually been quite fortunate, of all the KS's I have backed over the years, think that's the only way that failed totally and didn't produce anything.
