Advanced Heroquest, please. OK, never a Specialist Game, but still my favourite of GW's various goes at dungeon-bashing; well, that and Space Hulk.

This, please.

And a 'New' version of Mordheim would be great.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I...just don't know about Mordheim. Don't get me wrong, it's the one I most want to see come back, and I'd love it if it happened, but I just don't know that it would actually "come back".

Would GW really miss an opportunity to flog more Goldenboys? And no matter how they decided to do that - either putting Mordheim in a bubble and transporting it to AoS, or doing a "spiritual successor" that's vaguely Mordheim-ish in tone and gameplay style but isn't actually Mordheim as-was - I'd really prefer they just didn't do it at all in that case.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks
"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

I mean, I could ignore a new Mordheim, but it would itch at me in the same way Silver Tower does. I loved Warhammer Quest, but the new one just looks wrong to me - the tiles don't look like any kind of flooring, the style of the models is way too OTT and I don' t think they look very good, barring the Oni thing.

Mordheim was great because it was pretty much the MOST Old World Warhammer game ever. It had everything that made the Old World fun and unique turned up to 11. If I am not obsessing about small cultural differences between fictional city states in the Empire, it hasn't been done properly.

Failing that, BFG: All of them would be nice to have back, however.

It's time to drop bloodbowl and necramunda from the poll and add man o' war already. That way the results would be more accurate. I would be interested in mordheim since I wasn't able to get it the last time around.

Not that it's the same by any stretch, the BFG:Armada are fabulous if you like RTS

BFG for sure. Preferably just a rebalancing of some of the point costs for certain factions rather than a redo of the whole ruleset, the basic rules are perfectly fine as is.

Proper Old World Warhammer Quest - not the new boxed games. However, with the direction GW is going with more and more products...I'd actually rather they don't do this. Short of pushing "print" on a new copy of the old game, I've zero interest in GW's "modern" take on WHQ.

Now that i've played it, i'd go with Aeronautica Imperialis. I want to see those plastic Tau Barracudas, Eldar nightwing, etc.

I've been thinking about Space Marine 2nd Ed alot lately. Always had a blast playing that one.

Now that there is AT & AI, epic of sorts which combined all three to form a trifecta would be killer! Finally you could have > comany level battles with titans and flyers like the lore depicts. Apoc is not the same, not even close.

Actually, why not go all the way in and add BFG of sorts into it. You could actually play out a whole planetary invasion game, starting from space, closing into orbit and all the way to the ground battles.

You could also play all these separately like now, however being able to meaningfully combine them would be the novel idea.

Heroquest would've been on the top of my list, but I got in on the Kickstarter. Epic would be my next choice.

Although I kind of feel that 40k should be on this list with how screwed up 9th is.

Most of these games now have modern, much better equivalents by design teams with much better design philosophy and way more skill. So I don't think that -apart from the nostalgia value - having these games again, done the old-fashioned GW way (randomness, little player agency, tedious upkeep) makes a lot of sense.
