Honestly, that's one reason I like the format of the AT books. Sure, more fluff would be nice. But those books are sustainable. They can develop two per year and avoid lulls of 12 months or more.


Right but they're still charging top dollar and as hbmc pointed out it's more than other books, they clearly still have expectations regardless of their own diminished output. "Hey boss, ya, only felt like doin 28 hours this week, no no, I still wanna be paid for 40 tho, I'm a special boy"

I agree with you on the AT books, but those are also proportionally affordable at around 40$ a pop. Those books also suffer in art department a bit tho, they feel a bit budget.

It's smaller and not even filled up with text, there's a photo floating around of pages that are 90% photo edited ships flying though clouds with tiny paragraphs at the top. I'm hesitating to buy because it seems like such a rip off compared to the other books. Maybe wait for the softback.


I just wish it had dark mechanicum.

Why not? All of the RPG industry save for WotC manages to do it, after all.

The shields are a different shape, but the head looks identical except for the lower half.

I'd expect that and the other two arm weapons for the next warbringer sprue.

Would it be too much to hope for some new weapons? Arm mounted missile pods returning would be great (and would fit with a Warbringer)

an all missle Warbringer would kick ass, I might actually buy one, and not just in Titanicus scale!

They remove things when the mould dies, and bring them back when it's replaced - the Aurox recently returned, for example. Also, I'm guessing the titan moulds are easier to do as it's a CAD sculpt so they can 3D print it, and given the age of the Achilles kits I'm guessing they have do be re-done from scratch.

Seeing gw sells most of lifetime sales of kit in matter of months it could very well be true if fw for some reason doesn't work differently.

Hopefully that Volcano cannon will get a separate release, rather than just being bundled with the Warbringer body. The Quake cannon was basically a separate kit (its own box and instructions) that just came bundled with the body, so the weapons are obviously designed to be sold separately, even comes with pre-cast holes for magnets on the ammo hoppers.

Will also be interested to see the back and what has replaced the ammo hoppers for this variant.

Fingers crossed:



Forgeworld used to sell the triple apocalpyse launcher reaver for Epic back in the day. It had a specific name which escapes me at the moment.

New Warbringer is now up, the Volcano cannon is not available separately, though sure it will be, even a lot of the product shots shows it separately. Do like the look of the power cells but still hoping for a big plasma weapon at some point, reckon that could look really good.

The new head does look absolutely identical apart from the face plate, even looks like the same Princeps, which is a shame, would have been nice to see a few more differences.

Imagine releasing a new HH book and then a bunch of Hobbit and Necromunda stuff, and then not either of the two units previewed sinc elike april, 3 weeks after release. Like Titans are sick dont get me wrong, but Deathwing and Contekar are literally made to be released alongside Crusade. So weird. Such a strange company.

Yes, it's a global pandemic and it is still in progress.
Games Workshop Head Office is still running a skeleton staf; managers are working from home, the factory floor has been completely compartmentalised in to individual booths and the entire site is a one-way system internally and externally. From what I understand, working at Lenton Lane is a complete ballache right now and we're about to enter the second large wave of Covid. I think we've had our golden summer with GW releases, and now it's back to being 'maybe maybe but not this week'.

They didn’t release the Escher upgrades with the HoB either, so something is lagging down the line.

GW will remain lagging as will many other firms, until Covid restrictions are fully lifted. Ergo when you can work side by side with other people without fear or having to soak yourself in disinfectant etc...

GW has honestly done really well too; they've not had stalled sales; they've had high product demand and whilst they can't quite keep up, they are pushing out new content at a regular pace. Heck they already paid back all their government loan money from the furlough payments and most firms have 10 years to pay that off.


GW isn't perfect, but right now they are doing really well in general. Even if we get a second lockdown and such I'm sure GW will ride it out well.
