Just a quick but very interesting little rumor, that has been posted on a couple of the local GW and club facebook pages. No idea personally if there is any kind of credibility in this at all but quite interesting.

Certainly something to look out for.

I know where this came from, and if @Bindi Baji is right, then it's just a consequence of GW HQ's absolutely woeful treatment of Australian staff and failure to give adequate information at the coalface.

If these do come back, great. I'll just dust off my budget and see about replicating my guard in Epic, finishing my BFG fleet and getting some mordheim going.

The latest rumours involve GW Australia and it's staff awaiting relocation to GW Antarctica

Just did a screen capture of today's announcement on the Warhammer app... It's official!!! :grin:

BTW, if they are announcing it now then it would have been on their drawing boards and production schedules for the past 3 - 5 years! Current work programme for their design and development team would be for items to go onto the shelves in 3-5 years time from now!!!

The official announcement was due to go out in the first quarter of 2016,
anything now is as a result of panic stations:grin:

Well certainly was sceptical about this all but seems that our prayers to the mighty god emperor that this has borne fruit. The return of the specialist games is nigh praise him. Praise the god emperor....

And of course GW for making it happen.

So it leads me to question what does this mean for the games? Condensed versions of the rules and having limited forces? Each of these systems at it prime had a large varitiy of different forces multiple unique armys? Will they do upgrade boxes similar to what forgeworld has for the betrayal at calth stuff? These thoughts churn through my skull..

I hope 'specialist games Workshop (SGW?)' does one thing: Engages the community.

Maybe GW noticed how much official Mordheim, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, Battlefleet Gothic, etc stuff sells on e-bay and realised there is still big markets out there for them old games.

Personally, I'd love to see one of the gang based games re-released like Necromunda or Mordheim.
