LOL - I always start up the hobby when GW is at it's lowest stock. Started in '95, joined again in '01, back now in '08. It's my fault!

Not if they keep pissing off their fanbase by making needless rules changes and jacking up prices they won't.

I heard somewhere about a plastic Thunderhawk too. That'll be cool and I'd rather pay $150 for a plastic one than $750 for a Forge World resin one.

And as far as the necrons rumors are concerned, has anybody heard if they will be doing away with "We'll Be Back" or not? I've heard that they will. That's going to make for a lot of angry necron players I think.

GW has survived many stock crashes and the same players have bitched about the same things since second ed. I look forward to sitting down and playing some games of 5th, the rules look mighty nice from my point of view.

Yep. As for the chart, it looks like the release of 5th has helped GW as far as rising stocks. They were at a low before July of this year. I think they'll bouce back rather well with the release of 5th and Black Reach. Now if they'd just drop Lord of the Rings and concentrate on WH/WH40K I think they'd do much better for themselves.

They could consolidate or drop the teams (yeah loss of jobs sucks, but what's good for the company) and build more on the WH/WH40K Universe. Plus they might even be able to apply some of the team members to the specialist ranges. C'mon GW give Bloodbowl and Necromunda some love here

no official word on wbb but there is no mention of it in anything recent and a good few people have been told fnp will be replacing it

I think the sharp inclines were due to the campeigns(eye of terror, medusa five, etc) and dawn of war.

I can only attribute the sharp declines due to price rises. Also when did apocalypse come out? We can actually see if it helped haha

I really do miss that game, a little shocked we've never had a successor

Feel No Pain to replace We'll be Back? Doesn't really seem fair does it? I mean, "We'll be Back" is one of the defining characteristics of the Necrons.

I guess they figure you don't need a boxed set to play spacehulk anymore. Maybe they want us to make our own game boards and just use the rules for Terminators and Genestealers as published in the codexes. (that isn't the right pluralization of 'codex' I'm sure, somebody help me out?)
