Just seen this up on the Warhammer Community page, and a rather stealthy way to announce the HH Weekender 2019...

 

Event will take place on Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd February at the Radisson Hotel at East Midlands Airport. It would appear that Heresy is sharing the stage with the entire Specialist Games department too.

 

Tickets go on sale Saturday 10th at 10am GMT - and so far I haven't had any emails saying that I have early access by virtue of attending the 2018 event. Tomorrow morning I will be ringing up FW to see what is going on with that, because 10am Saturday is going to be massively hectic.

Think I might try and make it for this one. Wonder if I can nab any of our local HH group...

If you're using grimdark unironically you're part of the problem.

It’s Horus Heresy and Specialist Games now. It was HH and Necromunda last year so I suppose it’s a logical extension. I mean, Blood Bowl is as out of place as Middle Earth there.

I was at the last one, and it was a good time! Will certainly grab a ticket if/when they do the early release thing for repeat purchases.

 

I'll be offloading that ticket though, because a ) I can't go. Baby's due in Mid Jan, and there's no way I'm getting away for a weekend that soon after - and b ) Kinda super-not-happy about the encroachment of all the Specialist stuff on what was a HH-specific event. Titanicus I can understand, but freaking Lord of the Rings? Especially because the banner on the WHC page still definitely says 'Horus Heresy Weekender'.

 

If they're wanting to showcase all the other stuff, then why not just open up the Forgeworld Open Day to a full weekend? 

 

Bah. The weird decisions keep on coming. 

 

Whoever does go, please ask a hearty WT-Actual-F about the last 6-8 months and how they plan on sorting it. Thanks!

Yeah! 8th Edition Horus Heresy!!! *ducks for cover*

 

but on a serious note; I really hope they get their act together. I love the HH series as a whole, both game and novel portions. I want that to continue and have life again, its been a while since I have seen any Heresy games recently.

Idk, it just says "Horus Heresy Weekender" and "Horus Heresy Weekender 2019". It would be a shame to go expecting a large showing for 30k, and then they show off like 2 units that were missing kits, 2 consul upgrades, a book delayal and 2 special characters, and then a larger total for those specialist games.

 

Imagine that....

The fact that they're calling it a HH weekender and not a Necromunda/HH weekender speaks to how much is going to get revealed. A new Black book and with it, I fully expect to see;

 

-A finished Sanguinius

-BA Leviathan and Contemptor

-BA Special death mask wearing Destroyer unit

-WIP Sanguinary Guard

-WIP Khan

-WIP White Scars Keshig terminator unit

-WS Praetors

 

and at least one obscenely huge unit that will cost a newborn but also seem to be very profitable for FW so they keep on making them.

I'm still sad that there's a bunch of older stuff that still has no models and it feels like they wont get any until the missing three legion's special stuff is done with.  Instead of making a BA Leviathan, or special Praetors they should have done Morturg, Rask, Lansahai, Opheon, Maloghurst, Hol Beloth, Ventanus, Darr, Vhalen, Golg, etc....Or some of the Ultramarines units that are still missing, or Iron Havoks, or the space wolf deathsworn.

 

Just cut the superfluous things that no other legion got, and fill out the core range. 

 

Having almost ranted myself out, I wonder if we'll see the vigilator and praevian at the weekender. I mean, they were only showcased in august with a "very soon" on them.

Special Praetors seems a better idea, lets you cover those characters somewhat while retaining more flexibility.

 

I would think the already announced stuff would be out before the Weekender.

What with some stuff having been shown off for a while now, February still being a good ways away. And FW not trying to show stuff off too far in advance. Trying.

there are exactly 3 things Im hoping to see, 1.) XIIIth legion contemptor. 2.) the announcement that ALL last chance to buy legion upgrades are going back into production and 3.) the announcement that forgeworld has doubled its staff in regards to the heresy.

 

 

the sad fact though is Im fairly positive not a single one of my wishes will be fulfilled

Here's the thing. The only legions getting the praetors are the most recently worked on ones. Thousand sons have one, and they have all their characters. Space wolves have one, but it'll take more than a bit to make it theirs terminator character. Alpha legion got previewed with fully painted models in July, even though they have their characters. The blood angels were also shown off at the same time, with fully painted in August; presumably they'll be doing the new thing where they get a their full release ala tsons and custodes.

That leads me into time frames. February isn't really "a good ways away". It's closer than the initial announcement of the praetors and equidistant from the "coming very soon" consuls.

To contrast, do you know what was released from the other stuff previewed at the forgeworld open day in July? Literally everything else. Every single necromunda and blood bowl model they showed off has been released, but the 30k stuff previewed there is still in limbo. They're not trying; they've pushed all the 30k stuff back blood bowl, necromunda, titanicus and lord of the rings. Including the space for the 30k range.

@skimaskmohawk, that’s not entirely true, the ambot for necro still hasn’t been released yet. But other than that, it does seem that soon for 30k is a lot less soon for every other game system forgeworld covers (with the exception of the ambot)

I think that HH is shrinking now
FW cut off the less profitable kits from their catalogue and most of them are 30k kits
This is why they are putting the most efforts in the new growing lines like BB or Necromunda

This. This is why I've turned very anti-30k. They cut kits that people liked, but rarely bought. They dropped whole sections of inventory that required outside manufacture and storeroom space. Then, they split people off to switch FW from a one trick pony of 30k into a somewhat diversified specialty shop. The complete stop in releases probably has more to do with the head of the 30k project dying though with the drop off in development being most felt 6 months to a year afterwards.
But then, don't let reality dissuade you from your preconceived notions of 30k being the end-all of GW.

I wouldn't mind 30k if they could fix age of darkness rules.

No one in my city wants to play it and from what we have discussed it boils down to: the movement phase is gawd awful. Like the clunkiest thing ever.


But That's besides the post topic. I doubt I will be getting AOD2.0


What I do hope to get is expanded sisters of silence line!

What I think we can expect: titan arm weapons for warlord (plastic?).

The first of a line of campaign books for titanicus revolving around titan death.

A new blood bowel team.

A tease for a primarch.

Sadly. 30k is all but dead in my area, literally it’s just my large collection, my wife’s space wolves, and one other guy who runs death guard. What excites me the most about the weekender is the prospect of necro and titanicus teases! I really do hope they do show at least some wip’s of titanicus upgrades! I’ve got a warlord sitting on its sprue waiting some new weapons!

imo the best course of action would be a new starter box for HH maybe "Siege of Terra" and then give it its own rules (maybe 8th).

 

That is but my humble opinion as a non gamer

 

As a modeler all i want is MORE MORE MORE!!!!. (with a traitor yell)
