NECRONS? Oh my I might have to get into this one (although the conservation side of me wishes that GW would produce two lines - one of magazine and model and one of just the discount models because gosh darn it I know so many of us are going to be buying into it and just throwing away the magazine parts)

Wonder what the bonus items for the higher level subscriptions will turn out to be?

Mortal Realms had the better of those in my opinion.

I was (still am) a fan of Conquest but never regretted not going Premium.

The Premium option for Mortal Realms gave me hope that any Conquestv2 would fare a lot better.

I'm in already.

Geez another one? Guess Ill wait and grab a bunch of issue 1 if it comes to Australia later like conquest/mortal realms have done.

Maybe some cheap warriors for people if it is Necrons.
I wonder if anything will change for at or issue number wise etc.

I think Mortal Realms was largely planned and ready before that had a lot of results in for Conquest.
This is enough time that they could make some changes and decisions etc.

Maybe content wise for Primaris they’d bring back some older starter set stuff for them as they still have those molds.
Do both starter sets to fill a few issues up etc..

I wonder if they'll need a test run first meaning a small regional run of the first few issues like conquest and mortal realms did,

or if they'll be sure enough that there is a market they'll go straight for a country wide (or even multi national launch)?

whatever they choose I don't see it starting very soon as GW simply doesn't have the production capacity to churn out loads of plastic to supply them (especially as they're still supplying for Mortal Realms which is already on a go slow due to supply issues with the plastic)

The article speculates a start of early 2021, perhaps with regional trial and perhaps not. 2021 Q1 seems a bit early to me but I'd welcome it.

More importantly, there's a tax law that makes this practical in the UK, but not in the US. Don't know if said tax law is in effect in Commonwealth countries, but if so I don't see why they would include Aus/NZ but exclude Canada. (Although, follow the money ... if profit margin/tax write-off is not big enough for GW, then it won't happen.)

Conquest seems to have serious delivery issues in Germany (probably because of Corona). Interesting that they're already starting a new series.

They like to run them back to back to keep the interest up and Mortal Realms will shortly be finishing in the UK. I suspect that the launch will be delayed in Germany, possibly with Mortal Realms coming out first.

Conquest’s U.K. run ended a few months back, so I guess it’s a way to keep the cash cow a-milking.

Also fairly interesting that GW is still happy to dedicate production slots to low profit marketing stunts when their new releases and restock efforts are still hurting from lockdown.

Yeah I don’t think the news of this means it’s anywhere near countries other than UK.
Perhaps those that never got anything might start here.

But anyone that got Conquest, well they’re in the same pattern as the UK was, just however many months behind.



I’d imagine it’ll follow exactly, and get a trial as always (the main reason for that is the get the subs locked in and build its hype).
I’m all for the first couple of issues free like before.

A good way to get some kits from the starters that still aren’t available elsewhere, what’s left from Indomitus etc?

Gateway product is Gateway.

See, Conquest is something pretty much any Newsagent can stock, and order in.

This gets GW an eye catching product that isn’t their usual turf beyond White Dwarf. New peeps find it, enjoy it, seek their local GW or FLGS, and from there the profit is derived.

GW might be doing really well during lockdown, but you can bet most of those sales were to current gamers not new gamers. If anything recruitment might be way down this year compared to normal because lots of people won't have been walking into GW stores. Sure they've likely clawed back a load of old fans who suddenly found themselves with more free time and revisited the hobby; but new people is likely fewer.


So yep they still need gateway products. GW is very clearly aware that within the whole wargaming fantasy/scif-fi industry they have one big thing on their shoulders - recruitment of the market. Almost all the other manufacturers rely on GW to get people into the hobby and then poach off GW. Fewer have the resources and outreach options GW has to actually push to gain new gamers and expand the market. GW is aware of this; heck during their dark end times of Kirby GW was seeing very regularly how limited recruitment drives and loss of customer faith resulted in them bleeding customers out to other companies. Old World saw it happen to the point where what was once a flagship game almost died.

Granted there were other elements, but suffice it to say GW is wel aware that one of the most critical things for them is the constant influx of new gamers.

If they’ve made a deal with Hachette, they have to honour it.
And they could have shipped all that stock off to them at the start of the year to be fair..

Well, some of the previous magazines never appeared in Germany while GW was in full lockdown, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of these are skipped due to a lack of models as well.

If we can use Conquest and Mortal Realms as an example, and it seems pretty safe to do so, it’s not as if it’s unique stuff either.

In terms of GW’s production costs, it’s a single unique character sculpt, then just churning out what are otherwise stock items.

That may be the case, but his point was that it doesn't require much in the way of dedication from the design studio or first step of production (having the steel molds made). Everything is already to hand, it's just a question of squeezing in manufacturing time. The trick is consequently just to align the product given away in the new magazine with the existing production schedule. So if you were planning on manufacturing SM Predators, then Devastators, then Scouts to refill stock for example*, you'd want the magazine releases to parallel that. Less time changing molds, less time wasted getting ready for diffent production runs. That way, you just operate the machines an extra day longer. Sure, it still means it takes longer to get around to other stuff, but assuming that you're prioritising based on existing stock levels, the delay should be manageable. It's all in the organisation.



*Yes, I know these are unlikely to feature in the new magazine being oldmarines. It was an example based on random products.

Or simply have a machine or two (no idea on how many machines they have) churning them out specifically.

From there, it’s shipping them - though it’s not clear if GW are doing the packaging with the mags, or if that’s perhaps happening elsewhere.

If it’s the latter, it’s pretty easy going for GW, as no need to await the right packaging for shop shelves.
