Genuinely Amazing Job GW
This is kind of a reverse rant so sorry if it goes on but I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this yet
Can I just say totally sincerely and un-sarcastically: well done GW.
Over the last couple years I have constantly seen people complaining about rules not being competitive, prices being too much and GW only really caring about money and forcing it out of us. But the last few months have felt like a total U-turn, and certainly for me has lead to me buying more from them rather than trying to Ebay it.
We have had a massive boom in really good value for money box sets that contain models everyone would want if they were playing that army (see ALL start collecting boxes that generally lead to savings of around 40%) as well as cheap boxes containing the models to formations.
A heck tonne more one off models to be included in said boxsets (albeit becoming more widely available now)
The return of specialist games - it feels like every month there is a new boxed game that I want with some pretty gorgeous miniatures that would make some really nice fulffy additions to mainstream armies, not to mention how much cheaper it is to start HH now with the betrayal at Calth, and the return of Warhammer Quest in a few weeks I'm sure will be very well recieved. Granted I don't know anything about the rules in these boxes, but hey the models are pretty and versatile.
GW are listening to their customers and making rules that people want to play with - AoS getting a point system will be huge for the game, as I know a lot more people are likely to be into it with pick up games becoming much easier, and I really needed a good reason to justify buying some of those incredible new minis.
Warhammer Fest actually becoming like the Games days of old with gaming tables and demos rather than a massive shop you have to pay to get into.
But most importantly FAQs, that not only are being done, but are being done based on questions we have asked and redrafted to ensure everything is clear.
From what I have gathered from store managers this has largely come about from the new CEO who while won't cut prices (understandably) but is still wanting to make groups of minis value for money, and he actually plays the game!
So things are looking up, and I for one feel much happier about the community - heck this is the first proper post I've made in months and I'm actually working on my armies once more. Has anyone else found anything extra I have missed off? Do you guys even agree? Or am I just being massively naive.
Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination
MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
