Well apparantly Gav has parted ways with GW. No idea right now for the reasons behind it but Brimstone on Warseer has confirmed it:

People do move on, no matter how much GW or members of this forum would like them to stay.

Second yes Gav is leaving GW, he's put in a hell of a contribution both to Games Workshop and Warseer and I'm going to miss him.

I'm pretty sure Alessio is not leaving however.

were ever he wants to, any gaming company would hire him in a heart beat. In some ways I am going to miss him but you all have to relize in the world of gaming he may have credit for writing the dex but many people had their hands in it. As a former playtester for another game know we did not get credit for alot of work we did but we helped the game out. I do not fear the quality going down in the least, heck you never know it may get better because new blood can now step up.

It is bad to see some one go that did a lot for the hobby love but hopefully some with new ideas that will improve things will come in. Best of luck to him.

I'm not really sure that I'm upset about his leaving. I do hope it was on amiable terms, though.

Gav had a tendency to let his personal likes show in the army books/codices he wrote. Eldar in 3rd Edition were very far over the top. The same can be said of his work after. Gav also had a weaker grasp on the basic rules, as shown by his performance in the batreps and his written comments during those reports, than a member of the design team should. His replies to FAQ questions also proved that Gav was a little less sure of the game mechanics than he should have been.

Maybe Gav just lost interest in the gaming aspect of the job?

This may be a symptom of GW bleeding money (so the rumor goes), their yearly profits going down by two-thirds over the last five years. I'd jump ship too if things were that bad, get my butt over to Lucasarts or maybe White Wolf.
