Good. GW's quickly becoming the old great gaming company I got into originally. I'm becoming a huge fan of theirs again (especially with Bloodbowl and the upcoming Adeptus Titanicus), and if they decide to give 40K the AoS treatment....that will be the last straw and I'll be back in their bosoms fully.

Yeah. Apparently like AoS they are foing down to the skirmish route with small squads & individual figures.
They are calling it Rogue Trader......

Aside from you and a few others, not a lot of people think this is important, and I seriously doubt they'll do something like this. Unless it makes them more money. I would like it, but I'm a bit more pragmatic about it. If they don't, they'll still have me back as their loyal customer. If they do, even better.

Interestingly they advertised the old Rogue Trader rulebook as a prize you can win if you give them all your money.
Well it didn't say it in those words, but that was the message I got out of it.
"Spend 50x Matty_C's annual hobby budget this month and go in the draw with everyone else for a chance to win A copy of Rogue Trader."

I'm Jewish which means I'm prepared to run from the Nazis in like 1.2 seconds flat. Books slow down the sprinting ;)

Books can also be used to club your fellow targets, ensuring you're the one to get away and, thus, life.

Books are life.

...I fear we may have drifted somewhat off topic...

I like the way the wording on the increase of profits says due to a team effort ! Why not just tell the truth in the fact that they have finally started to listen to what people actually want ?

With all the other companies that started up making products to fill the GW void, just cant believe it took the muppets so long to see the light ::)

I with doom kitten on the books, pdf is decent way of getting the rules, but nothing beats the actual copy, I could of done the same with Gorkamorka and just printed them off, but instead wanted the actual thing, more so for the artwork and nice pictures for insperation ;D

Books, solid and wordy, are what's best in life.

So is crushing your enemies, see them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women. With books.
