It appears from a range of other sources that there might be some truth to it though...

Wonder if that will make the older LOTR stuff cheaper on eBay or whatever. Might be interested in that, potentially.

Not bothered about exciting new versions of games I already like, though. Leave blood bowl alone!

If it is true I'd imagine that a new Blood Bowl would be designed around the console game in look and play style. I've no idea if the console game has different rules, but that's my thought. Also there's a Mordheim game about to be released, so that too could get a new look.

I thought the console game was pretty much identical to the board game already, but I must admit I've not played it.

Then I reckon they'd just do minis that match the look of the game. Easy cash in.

Having said that, if this new organisation is part of Forge World, I can imagine it being pricey even for GW.

I seem to remember someone saying forgeworld was closing, that's why I think this is bollocks. Maybe Mike knows?

It appears to be coming from GW Australia and US. If they are hoaxing, GW has found an entirely new way of pissing off customers. Smile

The last I heard from Liam, GW was rebranding all its stores as Warhammer stores, there are dedicated Forge World stores and dedicated Black Library stores, although very few of the latter two.

Forge World shut down further production under the Warhammer Forge section of the company and ceased making things like the Warhammer Terrain they did (bastards).

Can't see.them being bracketed under a new "Games we can't be arsed with" division when they're a strong company in their own right. With the Horus Heresy range they practically print money, so I think that might be bollocks.

However, this is the firm that destroyed one of the greatest wargames ever, on a whim, so anything could happen!

I'm going to take the opportunity to have an 'I told you so'.

Not sure I'd be lured back in by GW though. Maybe BB...possibly...but it might be an excuse to repaint my Orlocks.

Nothing will be updated, it's just moved from the specialist games section of the website. It still won't he instore and still won't.have anything added to.the range as it doesn't bring enough revenue

There is that. Doesn't actually say they will be updated, just moved to a new site...
