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


At least buy them dinner first...

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

No we're not. This thread isn't the place for such discussions.

@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)


Sure it hasn't, but what I said was everything previewed at the event in July has been released, and afaik it wasn't previewed there. Its model hasn't actually been shown off yet either from what I can tell. So it's a little different than the 30k stuff.

I do think it's interesting that this event is really for the Horus Heresy and Specialist Games, but they choose to name it after the first. I'd like to think that's because the Horus Heresy is still a bigger draw than the other games on display, but I'm not so sure these days.

I was all for this, even though I wasn't super happy about the encroachment of Necromunda last year on the Weekender. But adding in Blood Bowl AND Middle-Earth has pretty much killed this for me.

I've been to every single weekender, and last year was something of a disappointment for me as it was, and I'm not biting this year. I can understand why this may be the case but it really should just be called the Forge World Weekender now. Half the seminars in the past were great, the others middling. But with 4 other games there, I can foresee little that will interest me re: 30k. I'm not spending £75 on a ticket for a couple of seminars and the chance to buy something a few weeks early.

 

Shame, but not for me.

I intend to go, I've been to every one so far but the silence in regards to pre sale tickets makes it MUCH more unlikely i'll manage to get one & that the people i normally get to see & spend time with also being there which is a real shame.

It's the event i enjoyed the most & the one i usually produce entries for golden demon for.

So I've just looked at this on warhammer worlds website and it's just heresy and titanicus. And there's still a painting competition according to it as well

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... Ventanus. 

 

Ventanus got a model, it's just epically bad.

He didn't, that's a generic UM herald.

Woops! I can't go this year so no skin off my nose, but if people miss out due to this the saltiness will be legendary.

Maybe we’ll get to see what they’ve got coming up for Titanicus. Maybe we’ll get really lucky and they’ll announce Battlefleet Gothic!

...

Yes yes, I know, hope is the the first step on the road to disappointment.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

Somewhat confused about why the ticket's available through the main FW site when all their other stuff for the event has been pointing to Eventbrite. Like Valrak said, someone's going to be in trouble...

Stru is correct.
