If by interesting you mean bloody tease. I thought I was going to be able to grab some new guard models but seems will have to wait a few months for their codex release.

I kinda figured they would go big for the holiday season. Have something out there new and shiny to grab share of wallet on those Christmas lists.

Interesting. I wonder if it suggests they had supply chain issues or something else that made them fail to get the Tyranids to market in time.

Marneus Calgar is referred to as "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible. If the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

Or they were never due for a Dec release? Crazy, I know!

If you can keep your head, while all about you are losing their's, then you have probably completely misunderstood the situation!

Well, that's a pretty tame release. Nothing that grabs my attention at all! Not sure whether I'm disappointed or relieved at this point I guess my 'model dosh' will be safe over Christmas, having said that Dakka's recently inspired me with all of it's 15mm historical goodness so there's always that!

I hope the nids will be worth the wait for the folks who are clamouring to get their claws on 'em!

GW seem intent on putting all their eggs in a LOTR shaped basket. I hope it pans out for them; I fear it won't. Speaking personally, I'm sure the new LOTR elves and what-not are lovely sculpts, it matters not a jot to me since I have zero interest in LOTR and therefore zero interest in buying them. I suspect I may not be in the minority either.

It seems an odd decision to me. I understand them wanting to concentrate on LOTR at Christmas given the money they spent on obtaining the license but doing so at the expense of their other ranges seems folly to me.

December usually is an empty month. To say that these Hobbit releases somehow is done at "an expense of their other ranges" might be a bit much, IMO. We've seen six bundles released for 40k and WHFB(three Fantasy, three 40k) that might end up being big Christmas sellers.

Just so Kroothawk doesn't have to catch all the flak for pointing these things out:

Do I understand it correctly that ignoring the "rules stopgap" Death from the Skies, Escalation is the first expansion (not counting the digital supplements) that is not translated?

The fortification expansion and Sigmar's Blood are both available in German, though - what's up with that? I simply don't get this company anymore.

Well they know that the prospects of selling those models is slim, especially based on the last set of Hobbit minis, so might as well make as much back on each sale they do get, right?

This was also the 1st thing I thought when I saw the above pics.

Its a pretty meh release for me, but only because I don't care about the LOTR stuff. I am looking forward to seeing some of the new 40k rules. Hopefully its a good supplement and not just a picture book.

And yet he looks to be less than the plastic librarian from the SM release. Makes a man wonder just how badly they sold if they were GWs way of testing that price bracket for plastic characters but haven't gone ahead with it.

Oh, I certainly vote with my dollar, but the problem is that that is not enough. The problem with the 'vote with your dollar' response is that it doesn't take into account why we're not buying the product. I want to enjoy 40k enough to buy back in. It was my introduction to traditional games, and there was a time when I enjoyed it very much. I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.

Damn, I was afraid of that. I don't own Apocalypse, I was hoping this would be a few datasheets for a few of the most common super-heavies, and rules to use them in normal games, less all the "apocalypse formation" gak. Guess I'd be better off just getting Apocalypse instead, then.

Keep in mind that the only reason Tyranids had been rumored for December was because of a separate rumor that stated something had delayed The Hobbit's release forcing them to move up the Tyranid release. So, apparently, the rumor about the delayed Hobbit release was incorrect, meaning that Tyranids are not being moved up.

Or sell them dirt cheap, get people to buy them on a lark, and use it as a loss leader to push other sales of Hobbit models.
