This one is just a rumour. Although an interesting one at that. I know everyone has been afraid of bubblehammer and how warhammer will become a skirmish game. Well they may be pleasantly surprised. From what I have heard warhammer skirmish is going to happen. But it may not be 9th edition, in fact there could be a new system released based around a very significant empire city that may have just undergone some hard times. I won't say more as I am unsure on the reliability of this and don't want to give false hope but regardless we will know for certain by the end of February.

from what i can tell its not fully released and is on early access at the moment.


if they did a game in the box version with a couple of warbands and some decent scenery i could be a winner in terms of sales, but as with other games GW have done in the past the success was giving the player a decent amount of choice, so you had quite a few war bands to choose from, convertibility was huge part of this game to bring uniqueness and flexibility and individuality, that isnt who GW are any more(its why my site exists), space hulk worked because it was released pretty much exactly the same as the orignal version just with much more shiny and flashy components and much of the box could be used in 40k, dreadfleet nose dived because it wasnt man o war, and as nice as the models were they had no use outside the game, you couldnt collect your chosen faction as a fleet and it was a pricey board game.
If they produce any boxed game from the past and fail to support it by making it a limited release and fail to give people the chance to collect an army/warband/fleet it will likely not do well, personally i would like to see battlefleet gothic re released in full plastic, Imperial and chaos fleet in the box, and 1 sprue fleets for the other factions,all released on the same day, scenery and space stations and hulks the following week/month.

Today's rumours:

via Ikitlagriffe on Warseer (an extract)

V9 will not be just one book, but a box with other things such as a volume focused on two types of battles : clashes "lord of battles "in standard format creating links between games, and smaller battles with “pre-organised” armies (that's what you took for a skirmish game I think).

About this “skirmish” game: I’m not completely sure about that : this has taken many different forms over the settings but it seems to be one of the most tested aspects in recent years by GW teams. It is not intended to be the main way to play Battle. Currently, forces will be selected from a list of predefined choices, more restrained that the currents army books, without worrying percentage points, points themselves will not so important anymore: it will be destabilizing for the old players, but the number of miniatures contained in a unit or its point value could be no longer as important as before in this system. Players would have the choice to comply or not the points. A book will summarize the possible choices for all existing armies. It was thought just for fun, and almost all special rules of existing models could be ignored because of it.

I agree completely with both statements. :so_happy:

I have heard that they'll come out in finecast and not in plastic.

Finecast was always temporary and after the considerable problems (and not to mention the even worse perception of finecast) it's lifespan shrunk and as stated above is already being phased out.......

I'm doubtful of that, there's not been much in the way of new fine cast recently. It's been said too many times rah fine cash is a stopgap for plastoc, so why not just use plastic?

Well considering they are killing of Warhammer Fantasy in 2019, why would they bring out Mordheim.

Fantasy sales have crashed, now we get these guys.

No my dear fellow forum users Mordheim is dead.

Just to ram home this GW has in its mid year report has slashed its five year plan out with the bath water and now sees "In the foreseeable future" Less than 3 years. GW is bankrupt.

50,000 to 100,000 pounds per tooling for plastic and for a game which reached its plateau in 1998 is just plain stupid, Mordheim is a relic of a bygone age that some folks just can't let go. I am calling its time of death at 14.07pm on the 3rd of March 2015.

Mordheim/Necromunda/GorkaMorka would all classify as relics, so would a lot of video games that are getting redone. Like Elite Dangerous which was an ancient space shooter from 80s. Yet its getting a new release and very good support. Or Leisure Suite Larry which got a very well received kickstarter game.

Model range for the bands doesn't even have to be that big. Sure the games were way before me, but who wouldn't like to have a small gang of their own?

BFG release would do very well, look at FFGs star wars or star trek games.

rumors (even from confirmed sources) point to a "reduction" of fantasy. making it a skirmish game...
you seem to give pretty certain affirmation, lacking any support: got any source?

I'm confused, first post says you've heard they're releasing mordheim in finecast, second one says "why bother bringing Mordheim back out?" Last post says X figure for retooling PLASTIC. What are you talking about exactly?

And how do you know the exact year they're discontinuing Fantasy? Companies generally don't plan things like that when they're amidst a major update of said product.

The first comment in Finecast was a joke.

Also it cost a shit load of money to bring out plastic it cost between 50,000 to 100,000 pounds for each die used on the plastic injectors, as per industry standard.

But you see it is not like they bring out the same models as they have now, they all need to be sculpted from scratch, also it take two years from scratch to release.

I have been told to bring out all the Specialist Games fully supported will cost GW at least 10 to 15 million pounds, but folks just don't seem to get this, they think that GW pulls out games within weeks and from someone's magical arse. If Mordheim was to be given the green light now it won't be available until mid 2017 at the very earliest.

I never reveal my sources, confidentiality mean something to me.
