Nerfing the Leviathan would be a horrific mistake.

The issue with the Levi was its interaction with the Iron Hands rules. They've fixed that. Further punishing non-IH players who like fielding Levis would just seem unfair.

Chaplain Dreads? They're not even going to be in the book, so they're not worth worrying about.

I fear for Repressors. Having seen what they can do last weekend it's going to be a shame to see them go Legends.

Imperial Armour: Index Xenos is officially sold out on the U.S. fw site. One down, three to go. Does this mean we're getting closer to hearing something about the new books? The upcoming announcements originally meant for Adepticon perhaps?

I'd be happy if we just get the index back up to the old book, with the missing pseudo relic options and such..
With errata built in and a working versions of rapiers that should work more like the lord discordant and adding the missing units.

I would guess that plastics are just not feasible. You really do need to sell a lot of them to cover the costs. Like, an insane amount. Injection mould development is expensive, and you have to take into account the opportunity cost. They could be making something that would sell far better than renegades.

Now FW resin is a bit more likely. Especially if it is a conversion kit.


Plastics have come down in price recently. Wargames Atlantic for example, is doing a line of Spaniards vs Aztecs based solely on a less than 200 person poll's choice.....if they can afford to throw money away like that, GW can afford to do whatever it wants.

.Only a fool believes there is such a thing as price gouging. Things have value determined by the creator or merchant. If you don't agree with that value, you are free not to purchase.

Maybe a few months ago, although I am always wary of underestimating the cost of things. Now though? They just shut down their entire distribution and production system. They are not going to be taking any risks for the forseeable future. At least GW has pretty solid financials, so it will be better off than a lot of businesses.

The least they could do is give some experimental rules for us to look at.

And if they start nerfing things they could really hurt certain armies (*cough* csm *cough*).

I hope they add the Sisters of Silence tank to the Talons list that GW is making with PA.

Yeah that thing is awesome. But they won't add a fw unit in a pa. They'll do it in the new fw books if they do. Hope they do, even though I don't play sos, I'd still love to see it on the table.

All the indexes are gone from the fw sight, including ebooks. I know this could be due to the current situation, but all the other ebooks are still up and physical books are listed as "temporarily out of stock".

Am I reading too much into this? Or are the current books gone?

Gw was basically running them down on stock to nothing. It makes sense to pull the ebooks as well because its all outdated and the last thing they want is to have to process refunds for ebooks purchased so close to the release of the new book.

Of course the current situation might well have resulted in a delay to these plans, however as the withdrawl costs them nothing and can be done from home etc.... then they've gone ahead with it.

But if they've gone ahead and pulled the ebooks doesn't that mean the new books are close to release? Maybe a preview this weekend? That's what I was hoping.

And orks, daemons, etc. So you think pulling the books means we're close to hearing something? It would fit the recent pattern of pulling something before news (Ghaz, Mephiston, Ragnar, etc).

There's definitely a lot of stuff that needs to be looked at, but unfortunately we need to be patient and play the waiting game.

Yes but pulling the ebooks seems to be a sign. Gw doesn't give up free money just for anything and they continuing to sell other ebooks during the crisis.

What they do in the new Indexes could make or break some armies, csm and Custodes in particular.

What is the general opinion on whether we think new rules will provided in addition to a re-write of the old rules?

As someone with a reasonable Mechanicum collection, I was gutted when Fires of Cyraxus got canned (which was meant to include 40k rules for many 30k Mechanicum units).

I personally think we might... But at the same time, really do not want to get my hopes up too much.

FW seems in a weird place at the moment. Do we also get updated rules for OOP units? DKK Grenadiers got blammed a while back, do we expect them (and other blammed units) to still crop up in the new FW rules?
