  1. That's along the lines of what the BL said they might do: CGL direct to video type of affair. With the DoW intros as a testbed to show it's feasible. Hope the plotline is a little better than, saw, the Assault on Black Reach novella. But if it's not, I'm cool.

  2. I'm fully of the beleif that once one of the other major players releases an OGL minis game system that translates well to WFB and 40k and catches on, GW is going to see a major hit to their pocket book.

    Are you saying those people will convert their GW minis over, or they'll not buy GW product period?


    I have the same question. I figure GW can live w/o proceeds for the rulesets, but the minis are their bread and butter....



    "Monopolistic Competition" is an economic term, and the "Monopolistic" portion of things has nothing to do with the traditional "Monopoly" definition.


    I see, they need another designation.

  3. The SF/Fantasy market is more monopolistically competiative, in which the products are differentiated, but not at a gross level.


    I agree but would use the word "proprietary" instead of monopolistic. It's semantics but monopolistic indicates that there is no one but GW. There are plenty of other companies, but folks might not like their flavor. As opposed to, say 15mm WWII, where there are dozens of manufacturers for the exact same mini (like a panzer II j, for example).

  4. Which chapters will out the Ninja, Pirate, and Monkey angles to satisfy all things nerd. Oh and there probably should be a space marine chapter with boobs. Just saying, it would maximise sales to their target demographic.



    Raven Guard=Ninja


    I would argue that Vikings are a form of pirate.....

  5. I would expect Space Wolves to be a bit of a flop. Not only is it an army with narrow appeal,



    What?!? There Space Vikings for the love of god! Who wouldn't want Space Vikings? Blaring The Immigrant song in the background during games? Wagner? c'mon!

  6. *Yep, a buck for a 20" x 30" sheet of 3/16" foam core. Two to three times a year, Michael's puts it on sale for a buck a sheet. I think Hobby Lobby does too. Anyway, everytime it goes on sale, I restock. I typically have 20-30 sheets available to me at a time, so I see no need to pay more than a buck a sheet.


    Pls give estimate cost for recycled material and man hours spent, paint cost etc. Also, ho rugged would you describe your landing pad as. I'm not trying to knock it, just want to get the most accurate cost comparison possible.....

  7. Tried looking at Metropolis/Urban War, and the design aesthetic just doesn't do it for me...


    I wanted to pull this quote as it applies to the discussion both of you are having. granted, Lars, you don't think much of the aesthetic but what about the principle? Exact same stat line that can be applied to 2 different systems, individual and squad based, similar to the rackham confron/ragnarok principle of confron 3rd/rag1st ed? I've always been fascinated by these but it seems to almost never work out, with one of the systems far outstripping the other in popularity.


    And if it's not a multi system approach, what systems have you seen that work well on a smaller scale that can scale up appropriately?


    I'm also curious to find out what Josh is working on...

  8. but I think Spinespur size games will be the trend. ComfyChairGames is doing quite well with their game.



    There's a thread over at dakkadakka concerning how a miniature lline has to be able to scale up in order to be successful over the long term. Ultimately, as the bulk of income comes from mini sales buying more minis=more profit....
