Personally, I am really enjoying GW right now. They feel much more like the Games Workshop of the late 90s, early 2000s that I enjoyed. Lots of releases, rules and new units being released on a regular basis. Great new models that no one else really rivals. The price point is a bit of a killer, I would like to see them find a way to drop the price on rank and file models a bit and balance that with the higher cost of the center piece models.
I think their digital platforms are still a work in progress, but they are getting there and it seems like they are thinking ahead about future technologies such as 3D printing, and the eventual end of the LoTR IP. So it will be nice to see what the future brings.
The only thing I am really missing is the sort of "wild west" feel of their specialist games line, like Warhammer Quest and Bloodbowl. However, they seem to be trying to scratch that itch through third parties via Digital Products and Fantasy Flight.
