What specialist games would you like to see come back to the forefront and be sold properly again?

Do you want to see a return of Space Hulk as a fulltime game, rather then just special editions?
Do you wish you could break out your Necromunda gangs again and play them in store?
Would you like to see a return of Warhammer Quest?


I know personally I'd love to have a none special edition of Space Hulk again, and have it expanded into a proper game. The 'Base Game' with your Terms Vs the Genestealers is great, but how much fun would it be if you were battle through a hulk against Chaos? Recreated the Heresy battles with it, or using it to launch raids against Craft-worlds or similar?

Quest too was great fun... in the fluff they're always mentioning epic hero battles of how such a hero fought through dungeons to retrive an artifact... Why can't we have that again? Heck... a 40k version of quest would be awesome in my mind.

I wanna see:
Necromunda (Love it, got loads of WD from back when they had real battle reports)
Warhammer Quest (Loved the idea of an RPG-like game)
Epic (It's just... epic)
and more of an impact with Aeronautica Imperialis (More races, aircraft, ground defences. I just love air combat, especially futuristic air combat)

@Midnightsun: I loved the RPG game idea too.

What I'd think would be really awesome would be for GW to make a system where you could convert your quest character to a hero unit for the full game. I remember the doing something similar back when Warhammer Quest was still around and lots of people had their Quest charcters as heros for their fantasy armies.

40k might be harder to do as not everyone ina group would want to place just one type of character so they'd have to think up some reason to have Marines working with Eldar or Tau for the Mystic and Archer archtypes... but hell, I'd pay to have my Quest character be an uber-hero for 40k.

BFG would fit in more with 40k campaigns. You'd be able to really get a good story going on, especially with multiple players.

I love Necromunda battle reports, but didn't like any of the minatures. So that would have to be addressed.

Mordheim...I had 2 warbands, witch hunters and undead. Great fun.

I never played Battlefleet Gothic, but I can see how it would help in a big campaign game, and how you could incorporate several systems into an epic...

Alert goes up... (Battlefleet Gothic) fly out your fleet and battle through to the planet... Drop your squads down for a recon (40k). Need intel... ('40k Quest') Send in a speciliast to get the job done.

And so on...

No votes for gorkamorka? Only ever played a couple of games, but i liked the setting, gave ork culture a bit of depth of sorts. Plus it's about the only game not available through the GW website anymore

I would love there to be expansions for Space Hulk, and I'm quite pleased with the support games that FFG is making now (i.e. the 6 player co-op card game out this summer).

Would love to see Epic get some attention, needs a complete rules overhaul and more titans :)

BF Gothic is great and would like to see some plastic kits and a general review of the rules and campaign set up.

Dark Future, maybe like to see some way of combining it with other game systems because it lacks depth at the moment...

epic. for all it's worth. it's the one and only game that most nowadays 40k models have their origins in (asmentioned by someone before)..

abd of course cuz i still play it actively since 14 years and have huge armies ;)

Inquisitor, I've got 24 models for it all made and painted, plus a few more in bits, love the models but never played the game, I'd love to see what its about.

GorkaMorka, because it was stupid fun! We had quite a campaign going before, One of my brothers orks ended up a half cyborg on a mono wheel, and one of my guys basically turned into what would now be a Kan a guess, not as big as a dread, but still rather stompy! and some of the trukk conversion were just ludicrous!

Hmm.. I should have made this a poll or a survey about what games people wanted back...

Seems alot of people like the bigger scale games like Epic, or the more RPG aspected games like Necromunda... Can't say I blaim them.

Definitely epic. Not only is it the origin for tons of modern 40k models but it's also a very well thought out game that requires a lot of strategy. I've never played an epic game that I thought was unbalanced.

I'd certainly think Epic would get a bigger part... but then, with Apoc, they seem to want to make Epic scale games with the full sized models.

Epic or Necromunda. Gothic never appealed to me.

I would be nice to see more of BFG. Especially since you don't need to sell your soul to afford a decent sized fleet.
