That's fair enough. I only just realised what it was for, though should have realised it from the get-go when the rumours about Genestealer Cults and the Deathwatch kept popping up.

Yeah, the game looks nice, but a bit too expensive for my taste at the moment.

Its a shame they weren't releasing the Genestealer miniatures on their own. The Patriarch model would make an epic Broodlord.

They may, in time. Rumour has it that the 30k figures that came out in Betrayal at Calth will be coming out for regular sale soon. If this proves equally popular, there's no reason they couldn't produce and sell those models in a regular format too.

I hope that's true. They've started releasing some of the limited run models in packs (Krom Dragongaze, Face Rippa and the like) so hopefully they will do that with the bigger box sets. Though with the Heresy range, I'm curious to know what would happen if they did release the kits in box sets. Forge World have been making a nice amount of money. While they're a subsidiary of Games Workshop, would they take a profit hit?

Would they stop releasing the Forge World kits or run them alongside the main range?

Space Marines are GW flagship line. Given how popular the Heresy era stuff is, producing that in plastic as a mainstream line will likely increase sales. Someone who wasn't prepared to spend, say, $50 on a resin set might be willing to spend $25 or $30 on a plastic one for the same stuff. Forge World can then do the smaller runs and supplementary parts.

I bet someone could make good money selling cardboard-cutout units that fit onto regulation-size bases. You could call it 'poorhammer'.

I had an entire set of cardboard chimera that I used as standing while I saved up for real ones when I played IG.

Paperhammer actually. It already exists, for vehicles at least anyway :)

I always wanted to get into the warhammer40k tabletop game, but oh my God emperor, I could not have enough moneys to get even one small battle armies. Worse when I wanted to play as tyranids which needs a lots of termagants models ( or meatshields if you like to call them that).

Nowadays I just mainly collect the models just to sit at my display table.

For the lores, I really wished that they stop giving space marines so much attention. It is kinda why most of the wh40k games are based on them, not other faction. The only game that imperium/space marine are not set as a protagonist are fire warrior. Would love to have a RTS based on eldars vs necrons. Haha.

This has always been the thing I hated most about GW/40K all along. It's the 'chicken/egg' or 'catch-22' situation....

They focus on Marines, because they sell so well, and they sell so well because they focus on Marines, etc.

I only play Xenos, but in many groups I've been apart of, I am the -only- non-Marine/Imperium player there is. Win or lose, it gets boring. ;)

Someday I predict - 40K 12th edition, maybe - it will be nothing but dozens of Marine chapters, with maybe a sprinkle of Imperial Guard. ;)

I would not be even surprised if they actually ended up like that.
All of the previous update they did was, Space marines, Space marines, Space marines, tau, Space marines, Space marines,Chaos Space marines.

And those poor Sister of Battles, their only purpose was becoming a scrub especially the Grey knights and chaos.

No idea. I think its partially because I want to see a group game where the characters are more each a captain of their own ship. I don't think ive ever seen that either here or anywhere else

Hmm. You'd probably have to run a game like that using Rogue Trader for ship to ship combat. I don't think any of the other systems cover it.

Maybe a Black Crusade hack, importing the space combat rules from Rogue Trader? There's a Pirate Prince archetype in the Slaanesh splatbook.

I always liked the setting but at the same time I never really liked any of the factions. Granted my only real experience with it is like one book and dawn of war 1&2

Eldar/Human Hybrid child between Eldar Farseer Taldir and an Imperial Assassin I think.

She is a psyker but pretty much makes everyone else around her relaxed and calm/empathetic.

Also has the power of D'awwww X3

You have clearly fallen under the malign corrupting influence of this foul xenos hybrid, and must be purged at the swiftest opportunity,
