I think Grumpy is hoping for Tomb Kings. ::P:

 

I never played Warhammer. But I love me some Mordheim and HeroQuest.

Nope, Grumpy is hoping for Empire! :lol:

As I understand it GW is a publicly held company and is legally obligated to maximize shareholder value. They had a management team that did not understand the niche nature of the business and tried to focus on only the most profitable product lines and increased prices as high as the market would bear, not unlike what WotC did with 4e D&D. That strategy didn't work out and now with new management they are trying a different tact. 

 

About a year ago I received a survey email invite from GW asking what changes I would like to see for AoS and answered every question with some variation of "Bring back the Olde World". I suspect they received a lot of similar responses. So like WotC with D&D, and Blizzard Entertainment with WoW Classic, they are finally listening to the fans.

 

I was not happy with AoS but wasn't much affected. My friends and I have extensive collections of unpainted models and still have the 8th edition books. I suspect we could make no further purchases and be set for life, but I'm still happy to hear the Olde World is coming back. There are still a few holes in my armies you see...

      As a beginner painter, the concept of doing an army (or even just an army unit) feels both logical and like way too much work. Nevertheless, here it is, my first army unit! Read more about the process (and see a few more photos) over at Pocket-Sized Adventurers.
       
      Comments and thoughts are of course welcome!

      Here are my last tributes toward a Mordheim revival in 2019.  It didn't work.

      The Undying King is a nameless monarch from a long forgotten kingdom, whose quest for immortality saw him and his subjects turned into war machines conscripted to fight an endless war.
       
      (In actuality this is Katakros - Mortarch of the Necropolis from Games Workshop)
       
      Eventually the whole thing will look like this:-
       
       
      But at the moment it looks like this:-
       

       
      I probably could have done with leaving things in even more bits (painting the inside of those capes is going to be a nightmare), but that's a problem for future me.
      Starting on the base:-
       

       
      Did all the grey rocks with a basecoat of Cold Grey, a wash of Black Wash and drybrushes of Cold Grey and Ghost Grey.
       
      There's some rocks I want to do as a blue-grey, that's the next task.

      This one was painted for a Frostgrave facebook group challenge, the theme was "undead"
       
      My sister uses these guys in her vampire warband for frostgrave and mordheim, so I decided to paint one of them 
       

       
      By the way it is around my one year anniversary on the forum, I'm really happy that I've discovered this place about a year ago, it has been a place of inspiration and helpful feedback for me and I hope it will stay the same for the next year 
      Cheers and happy holidays to you all!

      Field agents of the Inquisition, Crusaders are warriors trained in some of the finest military academies in the galaxy.
      They provide any group they are assigned to a wealth of knowledge and experience, and a worrisome reminder that the Inquisition is always watching.
       
      Presenting Hugo the Crusader, a character class from Warhammer 40k by Games Workshop (this particular one is from the Blackstone Fortress standalone game).
       
      This one proved quite tricky, made the classic mistake of getting him assembled and based before checking to see if I could actually get into all his nooks and crannies. He turned out quite good though.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
