I think this is they key. GW is releasing a game that can be played on its own, used as an add-on to any existing army, or used as the start of a new army.I've seen the sprues and honestly, it didn't really even look like two different armies. Just one big one.
I like it too. Thats one of the more interesting things about 30k, a lot of the armies can use all the same models, but the color schemes and compositions dictate which legion it is.I think this is they key.

Either way I like what I've seen so far.
I had an interesting conversation with Games Workshop this morning. I'm one of a few Independents who are being offered a new product to trial that won't even be in their own branches. It will be announced on Saturday. I don't follow forums so you may all know about it already but if not...watch this space and look out for the full announcement on Saturday. I've been retailing Games Workshop products since 2003 and I've never known them give me something that will not be available in their branches. It may go into branches at some point, but for now their selected Independents are being used to see how it sells. Makes sense in lots of ways I guess?
If you ask me this sounds more likely to be the rumoured airbrush paint range that GW are planning on releasing.Just lifted this from my facebook wall.
Could be relevant, could be something entirely different.
Which i dont get to be honest. Why sell something when as it stands currently you dont sell the the means to use. Hell GW have long been the 'All you need is us' with their products, glue, hobby tools, pallettes etc, yes there are all sorts of alternatives but you still have the option to just use GW if you so wish. But also those that are using an airbrush -from online reading at least - use Valejo Model Air or other brands, now while yes an argument can be made that this is simply because GW didn't offer an Airbrush range, I dont see to many people just hoping over to Citidel Air just because its GW when they have whatever they will be using currently.Citadel Air it is!
Oh man. Think of all the amazing product names... this could be its own product line with its own thread!Maybe it's GW branded deodorant,
independents get a trial before it becomes compulsory for teenage boys to wear it, when they are in GW shops
