As the title, what would you like to see in the pipe for 40K, whether it's a new faction, a new model for an existing faction or even new rules, campaigns or whatnot?

For me, I got one wish fulfilling with the recently revealed Skitari transport. However, if I had my choice, I would like to see a new Tau war engine - say a six-legged walker/transport armed with Tau plasma (or a railgun) and missiles. Of course, I wish GW would also get us plastic Eldar aspects as well.

Leman Russ is already available via Forgeworld, albeit a little expensive (what isn't on FW) - https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Leman-Russ-Primarch-of-the-Space-Wolves

Personally, I'd rather see the primarchs left where they've always been, wherever that is (I forget what the fluff is about them). It's getting too much like The End Times/Age of Sigmar, what with the return of Robot Girlyman. I fully expect that, over the next few years, the rich tapestry that is and always has been the 40k that I've known and loved since the early 90s, will be butchered and made unrecognisable in the same way that Warhammer has been.


As for what I'd like from GW over the next 12 months? Difficult question as I'm not that greatly enthused about buying GW product at the moment, haven't been for a while, I might buy a model once a year now...

If I had to nail down some things I'd like to see -

Titans. As an affordable multi-option plastic kit, just because I have this weird yearning for a 40k scale titan but can't afford FW's eye watering prices for one (although I probably don't have display room for one either). Although given the price of Imperial Knight models I understand that the term affordable in conjunction with a Games Workshop product is rather at odds...

More focus on games such as Adeptus Titanicus where you can't already buy the models from existing ranges, not in the same scale at least, might be good if a new version of Epic was brought out...

New tooled plastic [insert Imperial Guard sub-faction here], especially Steel Legion, there's no variation in Imperial Guard anymore and the 'Nam jungle fighters were a laughably poor boxed set even when they were brand new.

Something original. Tau having been a good example of GW jumping on a bandwagon, gundam/anime anyone?! Something that isn't just a blatant excuse for a model range refresh, Primaris anyone?! Something that isn't a gateway product, basically a shill for the existing model range, Kill Team anyone?! (I'm sure the recent Warhammer Quest variants fit into that category also but I can't quite work out how). Basically anything that you can't immediately look at and find a blatantly obvious reason for it being there, just something they wanted to make for the sake of making it, which I know in business these days is a rare occurrence because everything has to tick a number of boxes and fit into x y or z pigeon hole in order to grab as much "market share" and "appeal to as wide a demographic" as possible, yada, yada, yada, yada, random business speak for justifying products, yada, yada, yada, yada look how inclusive our products are yada, yada, yada, yada...

A way of refreshing my 100-ish model 20 year old Dark Angels army with newer fresher models that won't see me having to take out a mortgage...

A less monopose models policy instituted. I've noted a trend in recent years, that whilst many of the new models, mostly characters on foot, are multipart, they're monopose. You put the model together, quite often in a push fit fasihon, and that's it, you can't do anything with them, some are even moulded in such a way that conversions become if not difficult, pointless, due to the amount of work required. For one thing it seems like a massive step backwards to the 90s and the days of metal, especially when you consider that monopose models are cheaper to make, but the cost to us has in fact risen!!

Can I mention cost? Be nice to see an end to the way above inflation (and my disposable income) price hikes...

Oh look a pig is hovering outside my window!

I actually like CA. The matched play rules updates currently total just one page so that's not really the cause of the bloat. CA also covers all of the points changes across all codexes. I agree that the FAQs are a mess, but I see those more as clarifications than something you need physical copies of during a game.

As for what I want? I'm really looking forward to the new Chaos Knights codex. Model-wise I already have a backlog so no desires there.

Seriously, it's beyond a joke at this point. If it was just working with Index rules that would be one thing but they've literally removed ~95% of Corsair units from the game altogether. And it's been like this for bloody years now.

Yep, same show for many fw lists, DKoK got folded into one type, r&h lost 50% of it's troop choices.

Corsairs are just the the most extreme exemple.

Near Jupiter.

A couple of pages written word to help explain what is needed to play the game, and what you need or dont need, and the reasons why this is. I mean a couple of pages explaining it in a way thats easy to understand for soem one who has a couple of brain cells, because i dont understand any thing at all.

Some one made a thread once here asking about if any ones feeling 40k fatigue , and i am feeling it, and always felt it, never till this day undesstood what is needed to play.

For Eldar to get a BIG release chock full of updated sculpts and new models to use. I think of all the 40K armies they've got the most out of date at present and the age really shows on them.

I'd also love if GW really embraced their more exotic alien aspects in the designs - make them more orate and alien than just cone shaped helmets.
