Default Jervis Seminar 40k GT Heat 2

Leonmallet of Warseer attended 40k GT Heat 2 and had this to say about the Jervis seminar.

Jervis kindly delivered a seminar in Bugman's on Saturday night, and after running through the new releases for january (and February?) he was open to questions. With regard to most 'further out than the next two months' questions he stated that it was impossible to say what would come out when.

That said, he would not confirm that Phil Kelly is working on the Guard book.

He stated that the plan is to now work to a 4-6 year period of renewal for the codexes and army books. As in Canada a few months ago he reiterated that if they get ahead then new stuff can come in, but only if they are on course with the existing books. He sounded genuine in this to my mind.

I asked about the rumoured combined/not combined Inquisition book. What he stated was that Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters will remain seperate army lists, that they remain part of the planned 4-6 year edition life cycle, and that the focus will shift towards the militant chambers for each rather than the emphasis being on the Inquisitors. He indicated that the emphasis came from the fact that they were working on Inquisitor at around the same time and basically got a bit carried away.

I brought up the wargear/weapon discrepencies for identical wargear across different codexes. He may have misconstrued my question because he defended it by citing different points costings, but didn't offer any hope of resolution when I clarified my question as in essence they (GW) see it as too big an undertaking to create such consistency (I may be misquoting Jervis, and apologies if I am, but that felt like the gist of the response).

Besides Griff Oberwald upcoming (SG I know, but bear with me) he indicated that there is no planned renewed support for Specialist Games at this time, which obviously has an impact on the 40K realted elements.

So a lot of what we know or believe we know, but the Inquisition bit of confirmation and allusion to direction shift interested me.

sounds good... Aain jervis seems adept at dodging most questions but still what he did say seems good

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Link?

Why is it that people feel the need to pinch content form other sites and then never provide a link to it?

because he provided the pertinent information. It really isn't that hard to type in warseer, and look for the topic.

check out the entropic reaper or remain a vagrant on the sidewalk of life.

It's some good info.

I am not really on hersey-online, so feel free.

It isn't pinching when you seek permission from the copyright holder first.

Good find Jez.

I wonder if anybody will be doing a seminar at heat 3?

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Thanks for that, I will check out the original thread on warseer when I get home (it's blocked at work). I will add towards those asking for a link, whilst he did cite the source and perhaps went above the usual call of duty to actually ask permission first, I think that it's still good practice to provide a link with the quote even if it's only for terminally lazy forum users who hate to use google.

I'll also say it seems a little disappointing in the quoted text of the original post, as what I'm always listening out for is Necron rumours and it seems to contain none. If no-one there asked any questions pertaining to such a race (or similarly Dark Eldar) then I'm not surprised such races almost never get an update, as the higher ups might not be aware of those who want it (or those who want it are not vocal enough/too small to be worthwhile).
