It really doesn't. It just isn't aimed at you.

Lots of GW gamers, current and lapsed, will have kids now some of which will be at reading age. This brings a way to introduce those nurglings to the fold (if it's done well), and it also provides a new avenue for younger readers to fall in love with the lore and the worlds.

The teen players will want something more grown up and adult, but those younger than that have nothing.

This idea that something cheapens the brand because you like it is nonsense. If anything, I'd say the crapping out of mobile phone game licenses and GW branded tat (like mugs and bags) is what cheapens it.

Warhammer Adventures is incredibly dumb and stupid and is something I would never ever read!!! Even if it were the last book on Earth, I'd sooner burn it for warmth than sully myself with reading it. However, luckily for Warhammer Adventures, I'm not its target demographic, so who the hell cares what I think about it?

Always remember kids:

Creating a new product to target a non-core demographic? Good!
Changing your existing products to target a non-core demographic? Bad!

GW is doing the former.

What is GW changing about 40k/AoS to fit in Warhammer Adventures?

It's the same worlds, but from a different, more child friendly perspective. You'll still have Murder mcMurderfang from the Planet Murder with his Murder Claws.

It's not really changing much save that its not all "super grim dark like my blackest of black coffee". The artistic style is less bloody, the overall tone is going to likely have a more upbeat ending and the characters are likely not going to be quite as downtrodden.

Heck lets not forget one of them opens with a slave escaping by killing her owner (or something to that effect I only glanced at the opening presented). So its hardly as if there isn't some fighting going on. It's just going to be closer to something like Treasure Island rather than a blow by blow of the most bloody things Captain Morgan did in vivid detail.

Which doesn't seem unreasonable - someone in the extended universe must be doing something beyond mindless, miserable drudgery all the time and there must be some happy-ish endings.

If you read into the short stories there's love, victories, success and noble heroes all the time. Heck a lot of them are closer to wartime adventures than purist Grim Dark. In fact I'd say the whole Grim Dark is born more out of the artwork that GW makes and the imaginations of players and the overarching story structure than anything else.

The bit of less downtrodden is the most humorous, because Kiri, the protagonist of the Sigmar novel, literally sees her mother die in a slave camp from starvation before fleeing and having had to kill a man (chapter 1). She then spends an entire year living in misery and running for dear life until, right after being chased by wolves, she discovers that what her mother dreamed off may have never existed and that Kiri was just listening to a deluded cop-out as she sees the ravaged ruins of the place. (chapter 2)

Like, that is a very high bar in terms of fethed up, about on par with Dante's story if you ask me.

Since I don't habitually shriek I don't know if my opinion is of any use here, but I suspect that for plenty of people the world has simply moved on.

The Tomb Kings range is in dire shape because the update didn't redo the core skeletons and instead gave us new kits that inherited their bobbleheads, and since I very much doubt that an eventual return will see the last plastic kits remade in addition to necessary core kits, it just doesn'T strike me as something GW is likely to put enough effort into the army even if enough people petition for it.

The background is not going to be the same anyway. We have an entirely different setting now in which such a thing as Nehekhara has no history, which would give us Tomb Kings only in name.

Compare that to Sisters which have to put up with background changes to the setting only in a marginal way (so far as we know until the codex hits). And unlike Tomb Kings they are getting a full redo in plastic because their range is in that bad a shape.

And most importantly, GW squatted Tomb Kings but kept Sisters around. The result for players is largely the same, but it sends a message that GW might consider one of these still viable, but not the other.

When the actual survey comes along, I'll boil this down to my top three, but currently my list of requests in no particular order is as follows:

Updated Eldar range.
Consolidate all FAQ/errata and points changes into Chapter Approved.
Plastic Death Korps of Krieg or new Steel Legion range.
Do not discontinue the oldmarines product line yet.
Absolutely do not open the YouTube comments section.
Please don't bring back any dead Primarchs.
Cheaper, softcover codices.
Please, please improve your publication proofing process.

WFB Legacy edition for Specialist Games, even if it's only rules. Though if they had some VS sets it wouldn't be a bad thing. Just reissue the rule set plastics in a box together.

At least still sell squares for those of us who use them. Limit print runs if you must, but make them available.

Ideally I'd just like a fiction note that he singlehandedly escaped the Dark Eldar and fought his way back to Imperial space with nothing but a case of Hoffbrau and a whiffle ball bat.


Just kidding, but an official statement of life would be enough as far as fluff. I play 3rd Ed. so my rules are already covered.


If they want to make a new model that isn't a damn Primaris, I'd be on board. If not, I'm content with the one I have. It'd be nifty if someone would make an add on sprue for the multi part Captain kit so I could just use it. I REALLY hate pewter.

Well I believe some of them think they are still on horses from how fast they move; others are riding noble pega....dragons!
Plus they did just get a horse endless spell (its probably hard to keep horses around them right now cause they are more likely to eat them and compliment each other upon the fine boar and hunt)

Honestly that was one of the worst bits of management they've done in a long while when they gave a big preview of "new cheaper shipping" and then sprung a surprise "massive price hike" on all the stock for overseas. I fully expect that to get brought up by people overseas. Less so from those in the UK, but certainly the USA and Australia I expect to be big shouts about it.

For me, it would be:

A new plastic kit for Veteran Guardsmen.
Veterans get doctrines and specialized wargear, Carapace Armor, Hellgun too.
Vanquisher Tank to be actually useable.
New Regiments/Regiment builder.
No new Primarchs and if, not those who are dead for good! And if then: Wulfen Russ, cloned Ferrus, Khan, Lion or Vulcan are the only options.
No new Imperium factions. We already have enough.
New, less-humanoid Xenos race (Reptilian, Avian, Molluscoid, Anthropoid (Stellaris has some good ideas), Goo or sentient machines (Yes, Men of Iron)), or some of the existing, Hrudd, Slann etc....
All point cost/rule changes in a free, regularly updated summary/PDF. (CA would be purely a supplement)
More Killteam expansions, some focused on roleplay (I miss the old Mordheim)

can't think of anything else right now, that has not been said elsewhere.

Thing is though that was GW standardising their system. This is 100% same as GW main. Almost certainly decision by upper GW command who didn't want to have 2 different systems to upkeep.

Aye I can see the logic, however what I can't fathom is who in management thought it was a good idea to stealth the release. Instead of like with the getting started sets (and thus might have been them learning from the FW lesson); they instead hinted at price reductions for overseas people. LOADS of overseas customers were encouraged to wait for the updated prices with models in carts to buy and then BAM on the day the prices all went up.

Instead of a potential sales increase before the rise and then a reduction after they likely saw a whopping drop in overseas FW sales. All that investment from GW and FW scuppered with reduced sales coupled to a pretty major negative backlash from the international community.

It was just totally the wrong way to handle things unless their entire end goal was to reduce FW sales abroad.

It 100% is not the same.

GW's overseas prices are ludicrous, but even I'll admit that them being higher than the UK does have some merit because it does have to be shipped and those costs do have to be put onto the consumer end in some respects.

Forge World? I'm paying the shipping. It's coming from their factory directly to me, not to a distribution hub/warehouse where it sits in inventory taking up space before being sent to numerous costly own-brand retail stores where it sits taking up valuable shelf-space and then I purchase it. It's no different to someone in Nottingham ordering form FW, it just comes further, and I pay that difference. Yet for some reason I'm paying 40%+ more for the product because... why again?

And for them to tell me that everything is fine and nothing is broken because I no longer have to pay expensive currency conversion fees (that were never expensive, a few bucks) compared to some items that doubled in price overnight?

It is -NOT- the same. Don't pretend that it is.

Thinking of Joining a Davinite Loge





Nottingham, England

Update some core ranges, those that are desperate for a refresh in plastic.

- Ork Boyz
- Imperial Guard Troops
- Eldar Aspect Warriors

I was terribly disappointed to see that 'Orktober' amounted to a handful of new vehicles launched on the back of a boxed game. GW pushed it way too hard, I was half-expecting a new kit of plastic Ork Boyz with a suitably resized Ghazghkull to lead them. IG Guardsmen are looking a little long in the tooth now. I don't mind so much that they're Cadian, it's a fairly bland and inoffensive sci-fi human design, but it would be nice to see an updated box. The Elucidian troopers from the Rogue Trader box are perfect; more of that please. Oh, and maybe the return of Valhallans/Mordians/Steel Legion. Plastic aspect warriors, nothing more needs to be said on that. All of these should be multipose kits, I'm tired of seeing Death Guard figures in the same ETB poses.

MORE TITANICUS.

Damn! I had no idea about that. Forge World's always been out of my price range anyway, but man, litterally presenting a price hike as a price cut. That sounds so horribly cynical; Orwell himself would be impressed by such doublespeak. When exactly did this happen BTW? I only ask because I wonder if it was a remnant of the Kirby Heresy, or is Lord Commander Rowntree not the messiah many of us see him as?

I think there's no chance at all that we'll see another normal Marine like that. If Cortez returns, he'll be primarisized, no question.

Doesn't hurt to ask for more models for the best legion, though. Got to remember it when the survey rolls around.

My take is that this is simply a limitation of using avialable models at the time the gave them their battletome, and now updating it without introducing further models. There's really no reason why they couldn't have voracious ghoul ponies that share the fantasy with the rest of the court. Not that I remember from the background of the first book anyway.
