I honestly think this might be Squats. With the rumours about them coming, the mention of "Something Big" (A pun if it is squats), and how a Mechanicus ship in Psychic Awakening encountered a Squat vessel (and being in complete disbelief about it), I can see them announcing Squats as an April Fools joke...and then having them turn out to be real.

Squats'd be nice, especially with Ash Wastes coming at the same time for more land train action. But let's not work ourselves into a frenzy over a zero-information teaser.

Who knows ? The PC games did pretty good.


I would absolutely love the return of BFG. The Siege of Terra would be an easy way to relaunch it, since they would only need to start with a small number of ship models as both sides would be using the same ships.
I still have my Imperial and Necron fleets, as well as everything I could buy during the Great Specialist Games Closeout.
Sadly, I do not expect BFG to come back soon.


Sadly it will be a new scale game like Space Hulk, only in 12mm scale so your table can be the full size of the ship. 12mm so it's Bigger than Epic/AT and can still get great detail, but small enough that your squad can fit onto a couple of bases.


The nice thing about BFG was that ship scale didn't matter for gameplay. Everything was measured in regards to the bases and center of the bases due to the vastness of space. Of course, if a new version changed that fundamental aspect... :(

Yeah, there's a hand but you can't see anything to really go off of to describe anything about it.


Since it's a lifeless floating corpse hand and the computer terminals look like they're fritzing, I'll hazard to guess it has something to do with being boarded after a void battle.

I'd LOVE a Kill Team Boarding Action campaign box with Naval Voidsmen versus some baddies. Esp since I don't think anything has yet to be announced post-Nachmund

How is the hand floating? To me it looks like it's just there. I would guess it's BFG. We've seen titan being shot by a lance in Heresy trailer. So assuming titans are for A:T, lance could've mean incoming BFG as well...

Well it's not moving and in a rictus pose, so...

I highly doubt they'd (a) rerelease BFG at all (I rate it's chances somewhere around Mordheim), and if they did, (b) not in such an underwhelming way

Wasn't this also meant to be the case with the designs of the ships themselves? I'm sure I remember reading something saying that the way weapons were depicted on the miniatures weren't how they actually were and that there were meant to be huge amounts of weapons on either side rather than the few shown. It seems that those few shown have become how they are canonically however.

Perhaps, but gosh I hope not with the board game components. I doubt a re-use of those sprues otherwise the teaser would have some at least minor nurgle-y hint, which it doesn't

I would be shocked if something like that was announced without any leaks or verifiable rumors. How long have we had pics of the new HH box set that wasn't announced until Adepticon? People are getting full codexes a month before they release. No way Squats are coming back and nobody has heard anything about it.

We have heard about it - there have been mentions of squats coming back in a (so far) verified set of rumours.

They said in an interview somewhere (can't remember but it was at a con) that they looked at redoing Epic and BFG, BFG was their choice but the specialist games team was too busy with their existing games to dedicate the manpower that would be necessary to bring it back. It's still on the table for the future whenever they have the time. I would guess the slowdown in releases for the other specialist games (aside from Necromunda) could be because the specialist games team has started on BFG. That's what I'm hoping for anyway. Main point is it's about 1000x more likely than Mordheim because they haven't said anything about Mordheim but specifically said "yes we want to do BFG, we don't have time right now but it's on the table for the future"

I'm guessing if Mordheim ever happens it's after The Old World

What you expect? Pics of codex? Just because gw would announce squats doesn't mean it's out next month. Gw could do sisters and prehype it.

We have had rumour(from which stuff has panned out) saying squats are coming. For like over half a year.

You're right, I forgot about that. In that case I would say squats are a possibility. My money is on another board game like Spacehulk rather than BFG or Squats but that's just because I like to keep my expectations low about GW rather than being constantly disappointed.

I do worry that if squats ever happen, they'll be a disappointment. That they won't match whats in my head- either be really boring or over-adorned with geegaws and do-dads.

with cursed city back (made to order) and scheduled to be back regular release with expansions it seems unlikely as they seem to only want one of these sort of games in play at a time

Well, I managed to get a lot out of Lost Patrol so I think that speaks volumes. Its also Termies vs Genies...and I did enjoy the old EA game from the very early 90s. Also got the Blood Angels card game too.

It would be nice to have a copy of the actual game, I guess.

If it’s Space Hulk, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s NEW,UPDATED,PRIMARISIZED with aggressors vs old style genestealers.

Hmmm...

Not a bad thought to be honest. I rather like the current genies and those aggressors are very much the Old-Spice men of 40K.

No, GW would have to try harder to shake my interest in Space Hulk!

I mean Squats popped up in the rumoured list of new releases last year that has been proven to be quite accurate so far... maybe there is some truth in this April Fool's joke?
