Horus Hersey getting mainstream support..

Post by jul » Sun Mar 08, 2015 7:10 pm

Hi all,

so GW is dropping the bomb in May with a non-legion specific plastic starter set for HH.
with LoTR phasing out to direct only and Horus Heresy range having a greater demand than Fantasy, that will change the game.
For once, GW seems to have listened to its customer base and is responding appropriately.
As far as the rumors go, GW will produce non specific units, leaving FW producing upgrade packs (some of those are already available with the repacking of torsos, heads and pads in a single blister). plastic amour marks are also a great help to build sizable army and reducing the cost for the players

As a exemple, building a 20 man squad fully upgraded from FW costs almost 300$, by pricing the tactical the same price as the current 40k version, that cost is reduces to 200$ (based on the Deathguard upgrade packs). and that's prior to any potential discounts available almost everywhere.
I guess GW will also sell the upgrade packs though their online store as direct only as well. That reduces the logistical issues linked to general release of FW products while still making them available to a larger crowd.

I'm quite happy with this move, the future is going to be interesting with GW having 2 complementary setups in the grim dark... as long as they let the FW team develops the rules.
Would it be enough to get GW back on track and make players forget the last couple of years of psychose? i think yes, the last year have been good so far, hopefully it will continue this way. If they could only bring back a bits service...;)

Easier to put together than these ladz, I suppose, but you still have to paint all those molecular bonding studs regardless of what the model is made of!

Now that would be something I'd sit up and pay attention for. There'd have to be some practical way to do the plastics, though. It's not like the 1990's when most of the really fancy bitz you wanted were still metal... and I'm not terribly interested in buying a whole Blood Angels assault terminator sprue just to get the re-sculpted Blood Angels teleport homer (now with new grail-shaped beacon!).

I doubt GW will release this without also trying to sell us overpriced and under quality rule books.

For a company that insists it is a model company it really tries hard to make its customers buy lots and lots of rule books.

This is all still rumors. The most reliable ones have said that it is bunk or well off and not in May at all.
