I'm not really complaining that Fantasy is getting some time it rightly deserves... just saying, its getting far too much time and its a complete overload for alot of people.

GW have to remember that they have just as many, if not more 40k fans then they do fantasy, so its not entirely fair to bombard them with 24/7 fantasy like thy have been doing for the last few weeks, and making the latest WD (not that anyone reads it anymore) compeltely fantasy.

Are you actually serious? It's hard to pick up on sarcasm in the written form.

I don't care much at all about the release of new Fantasy Rules. But I feel like most people here "Let them have their day". We've had plenty of 40k lately and I have more than enough of things to build and paint anyway (lagging behind as usual).

On the other hand I like it when they release new plastic kits to WHF. It always tickles my imagination to try and look for pieces to use or conversions to make for 40k. So bring on the plastic!

Seriously man, do you live in the real world? Lets recap some basic facts;

1-GW is a business company, it's not there for your enjoyment or anything like that.
2-White Dwarf is an advertising rag that YOU PAY FOR, this is a serious win on GW's part. Most companies pay for airtime or pages/space to advertise, GW makes YOU PAY THEM as they advertise.
3-They want to sell fantasy, I'm getting a feeling that the dudes high up are pushing for an increase in fantasy sales across the board with this new edition. So the lower down staff are just doing their job in ramming it down your throat all the time.

If you don't like that, tough. Seriously, what 40k articles can they deliver that you can't find something of similar quality on the internet?

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

not likely, they don't like to advertise decent games unless they have to.

strange, I thought the number one complaint of WD is that it was nothing but LOTR?, thats all you hear all the twats whine about, that white dwarf has no 40k or fantasy articles, not even 1 in any WD, and every single page is lotr?

heck I almost expected people to moan about this issue being full of LOTR and having no fantasy in it at all because people are truly that pathetic.

I wait for the day it is like that, might be worth the money then.

Mainly collect 40k but have a soft spot for fantasy so for me its win win win....

I collect Fantasy and 40k, but honestly I went to my GW weekend before last and one out of ooh, nine or ten people played Fantasy. And one was a fat old bald sweaty dude. Not nice.

I agree with Stella, LoTR and WoTR are actually really fun games. I actually beleieve that GW should put a bit more about them in WD, but they dont and as Stella said, people still moan about it being LoTR dominated when that is as far away from the truth as you can possibly get.

When 40k got a new core rulebook a bet a lot of fantasy players were thinking the same thing, "Oh why is 40k getting all the love, oh all 40k all the time why can't they make me happy" So please, stop complaing about who gets more in WD, its just an advertisement that you have to pay for.

No matter what GW do they tend to over do it and then let it die. They have no sense of subtlty

I was 1st a fantasy player and I love the setting, and to be honest I think 40k gets far to much stuff, or at least SMs get far to much coverage.

It would be nicer if the coverage of all the races in all games was alot more even, when did eldar or tau get decent coverage, and when did Lizardmen or Dwarves (even chaos dwarves) get decent coverage. I'm sick of the only coverage on SM and empire
