AoS let's GW make anything they want and expand in any direction with the setting.


And with that freedom they made Warhammer Fantasy Space Marines and Big Orcs.

Along with many other things like fire dwarfs on dragons that use rune steroids and tree-elf spirit hybrids lead by a nature goddess on top a war beetle which is only the tip of the iceburg in the waves of new model releases they'll do down the decades.

That is not really a problem if said content is as popular as LotR. It is so popular in fact, that most stuff in AoS is directly derived from things in LotR. Same with all other fantasy.

But it is why I would like to see GW focus on more supernatural content for AoS, rather than orcs, elves and dwarves etc.

Well they're really the evolutions of the races of Wfb that were heavily derived from LotR. It helps to show the connections of the the old setting to the current one and makes a good transition for fans who want something familiar but also new.

No telling what GW's future releases will entail but the mortal realms are being explored again and this time Sigmar's pantheon is scattered and chaos has corrupted the lands before being driven back. Who knows what'll appear in time?

  • Re-release Mordheim and Necromunda (and re-work Shadow Wars to a balanced system).

  • Cease their limited runs and cut down severely on board games. They should stick to Silver Tower/Warhammer Quest and a few others.

  • Bring back bitz services and sell single sprues.

  • Less focus on the Space Marines model line - before bringing out more Space Marines, replace models that are more than a decade old. I get they're the poster boys and sell the most, but that's also partially because they actually have more models than the rest combined


  • As FW is a GW subsidiary, I'd say they need to bring out Prime Orks/the Beast/Urlakk Urg. Ork lists for 30k, with a view to go into the Scouring.

    idc what they fokus on aslong as they finish something BEFORE they begin on something new.

    AoS is a bigg mess as all fokus is on making brand new armies instead of supporting and boosting the old that allready exists.

    they should have hold off aos release untill every single subfaction got their own new codex whit a ton of models.
    it that means it would be delayed by 4-6 years and their warehouses overflowing whit models then so be it.

    approach another company with a popular fantasy/sci-fi IP and offer to make a game for them
    a game based on a blizzard/bethesda IP for example would have the potential to attract a lot of customers from that IP, I personally would sell my soul for an elder scrolls miniature game.

    as for what they currently offer some more HH plastics would not go amiss, some jump pack assault squads and breachers as well as a damocles rhino would be nice to see. to echo what others have said cutting down to no limited release minis or boxed sets would be great, I would have loved a copy of SW:armageddon but GW really dropped the ball on that one. and the return of BFG would be nice to see as well as I think that the best of the boxed/specialist games are the ones that use their own rules such as space hulk and blood bowl, silver tower was okay but it could have been a lot better had it not used AoS' rules as a base.

    Silver tower didn't use any of AoS' rules.

    except that the hero cards bear more than a slight resemblance to the warscrolls used in AoS. fixed hit and damage were direct ports from AoS.

    ...And you call that using the rules as a base? A ton of games use variable damage to begin with, old WHFB had it too, just for starters.

    Elder Scrolls. Elder fething Scrolls. I would love a licensed Elder Scrolls game of the same quality as the LOTR/Hobbit SBG range.

    that or something along the lines of classic warhammer quest would be amazing, although I would give up literally every other hobby I spend money on just to buy some elder scrolls minis. You hearing this GW???

    I would love some more support for LotR, especially in the same vein as WotR was, although I would also love to see a resurgence for BFG.

    I'd really like to see a fully supported return of BFG. Plastic minis , etc. I'm surprised it isn't on the agenda considering the popularity of other space-ship based games. *cough*Star Wars*cough*

    GW is the big player here, they should be able to bang out a release for each of the big 3 systems + a specialist game every month without breaking stride.
