The book content is fully finished.

 

They had the final one at the Open day.

 

It's currently being reprinted but won't make Xmas shipping so will be out shortly after.

 

All info from Garro.

Well they cut the team in half if that tells you anything.


It doesn't tell me anything about how my local group or the global heresy community will respond. While it's true that releases, especially of books, invigorate the community, the community is also capable of keeping up the excitement itself.

My hope is that this release gets folks off their butts and playing more heresy since the lull that came with eighth and that then we, as a group, can keep up activity ourselves. I'm mildly excited for Angelus, I play Dark Angels, but I can wait, I'm patient. A small shot in the arm is, I think, all we really need, and I hope this book can be that.

Ditto to this.  Personally, I know I'm going to get my legion back on the table once I have this book in hand.  The honeymoon period with 8th has worn off a bit.  It's a bit telling that most of the GW events my gaming group signed up for at Adepticon were Heresy related.

To clarify, the team wasn't cut, but they've moved people around. They're understaffed and in bad need of sculptors as a result of how successful specialist games have been. They've even managed to upset citidel by poaching some of their sculptors. They are basically running 4 informal divisions now, with projects split up on an ad-hoc basis.

Are Speialist games really that "successful"? It is my understanding that Blood Bowl is not selling very well and after the hype interest died pretty quickly. Don't know about the Necromunda.

I don't know about lately but it surprised everyone with how well it did initially. Can't really say it's done well lately because the teams have been slow to come out since then. The Elves were previewed in May I believe? We've barely scratched the surface in the teams available and the released dried up, they need to get on with it or the game will stagnate.

 

Same for Necromunda and even Adeptus Titanicus - a game many of us are super hyped for. If they released 2 things for it then nothing for a year, of course it'll tank

This is the nature of games, and why FW with its persistent staffing issues was never the right place for this number of products and projects given GW's known stickler like behaviour with release windows.

Poaching sculptors from GW Prime does explain some things, like the Varagyr.

Last I heard was before Christmas, but not in time for Christmas shipping. I think that was the word coming out of the 40k Open Day, and I haven't heard anything else since.

 

This is all second or third hand info :)


Word Bearers plus general 40k

 

The Sekhmet plus Emperor's Children and general 30k

I thought the Varagyr were confirmed to be from a long time FW sculptor? I can't find the post now though.  I am hoping that was just a one off bad sculpt. 

 

And on the subject of GW sculpts, they have been crushing it lately in quality.  I think that clear thematic guidance might have been the issue with Varagyr (or a significant difference in opinion between GW/FW and most of the VI Legion fan expectations vs 40k Space Wolves), and that is easily fixed versus the actual sculpting ability.
