Default Sick of Fantasy?

Just wondering if anyone else was sick of fantasy yet? As a 40k fan, its a bit much having pretty much every single thing from GW being fantasy, fantasy, fantasy right now... Anyone else fed up with it and wishing they'd get back to some 40k already?

I'm sure fantasy players feel exactly the same way about 40k.

let them have there couple of months, after that nobody will give a shit as normal and everybody can go back to (wrongly) saying LOTR dominates everything GW does, because they put 1 or 2 pages in there magazine or release 1 brand new model in a sea of fantasy and 40k models.

It's pretty arrogant to expect GW to fawn to your specific needs, and Fantasy players rightly deserve to have some attention.. let alone the fact that GW has to maintain both systems so interest for their models continues, which equates to sales.

Fantasy deserves to have time devoted to it as much as 40K does...end of story.

best get used to it, this isnt a new army book its the rule set so it will dominate for the rest of the year for the most part.

We had like a year run for 40k so I don't see why you are pissed off about this. You are aware GW makes other games right? They tend to want to make some money off them.

Let the game have it's day. I'm sure they've done this with every new ed. of both games and LotR. I don't think GW would be a strong and popular as it is without supporting both its main systems. I've played both and although I gave up fantasy awhile ago to consintrate on 40k I still like the game and try to pay attention to what's going on with it. Remember GW started with Fantasy Role-playing games which paved the way for WHFB & 40K, you should know and respect the roots of the games you play.

Nope ... I disagree ... I have never played fantasy, and will not do it. *sulks cause wife said no more spending* I only want 40K. You say they have to have a little bit of sunshine on their models ... I say " I reject your reality and substitute my own."
