I'd definitely put Dark Future at the top of my list.

More generally, I do wonder whether it will be another year or so before boardgames look like promising prospects, from the point of view of a miniatures/gaming company like GW. In countries like the US, at least, it will be some time before I game live in the same room with my gaming buddies. I do foresee continuing to buy new 40k kits to model and paint and so on over the next year to feed my gaming/hobby habit -- largely out of momentum (I'm already deeply invested, in terms of both $ and imagination, in the grim distance of the far future), and because I can do this at home by myself.

But I don't see myself doing as much in-person or in-store gaming for the foreseeable future. And accordingly, I doubt I will be making as many boardgame purchases as I normally do -- presumably for a period as long as the next year or two. From GW's perspective (and possibly from the perspective of certain other companies), it might make more sense to hold off on launching a new miniatures boardgame line (e.g., a project on the scale of a venture of, say, Warcry) until late 2021-22. Just from the perspective of resource allocation v. revenue, I mean.

Or maybe this fear is country-specific to the US, where the curve ain't flattening for some time to come.

I miss the 90's "solid content" of most of their board games.


I always wondered what finally came of that kickstarter.

I'm sure that lots of GW customers know nothing about the garage-business of selling BFG-type ships.
I'm constantly amazed by the amount of people that love Epic and still play but don't know anything about Vanguard miniatures, Onslaught etc. and the host of other companies making miniatures compatible with that game.


I have loads of Vanguard stuff waiting to be painted. Lovely creations. I would vote for epic to return, but I would cringe if GW released great plastics that were out of scale to my vanguard collection. I'm too picky about stuff matching.

I always used to wonder about that game, too.
Here's the Boardgamegeek entry for more details including photos of the game pieces.

I just want a mini of that robot with the M16.


I probably dreamt it but I think someone makes a reasonable version. Off to search.

Of course another vote for Epic, I loved that game and it made so much sense to play large battles in that scale then move to 40K for raids and small actions.

I would also like to see Warhammer Historical return, Warhammer Ancient Battles and Warmaster Ancients. I still play both regularly but it is difficult to get new players when the supplements are in such short supply.

PS also the Decipher Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game, it was much better than the FFG one.

Yes me too.. I've actually been quite fortunate, of all the KS's I have backed over the years, think that's the only way that failed totally and didn't produce anything.
