An interesting question:

If Warlords games creates an extensive range. Do you think it will possibly overtake GW in size and profit? Or is it way to early to say?

My opinion:
Put it this way I will jump ship once warlord games has a full extensive range. Will buy many legionaire box sets soon and celts when they are out, thus adding and using them as proxy to my warhammer armies. Untill their full range and rule sets comes out. :D

I hope they remain an LTD and never get duped into becoming a PLC. Sounds like a proper gaming company to me so far. :D

Thanks,

In a word, no.

The thing that makes GW so popular and earns them the most money is the WH40K setting. I don't think they will feel threatened, unless Warlord comes out with something designed to compete against that.

40K, WHFB and LotR have such a foot hold and tick a lot of boxes that I think any new start up will strugle to take on GW, but hey thats just my thoughts.

No, Warlord is simply taking expertise learned from GW and applying it to historicals. GW doesn't even see historicals as competition because they aren't necessarily going after the same teeny-bopper market that GW goes after.

Will Warlord's miniatures appeal to gamers who have an inclination towards historical miniatures? Absolutely. Will they appeal to the typical teenager that ends up getting into the game through GW's demo/store sales system? No.

Considering that Warlord Games does not have a single commercial product out yet for sale, I think it is way too early to even start speculating.

And what makes GW big is not just the product range, but the distribution system they have built inthe past twenty years or so.

What's Warlord Games? I Googled it and it doesn't look like they have a website. Do they produce the game Anima or are they a historical company?

It's a different market - my experience is that historicals tend to appeal to older gamers. Warlord and the Wargames factory (I think that's their name) who are also starting tp produce hard plastic romans and celts are more of a threat to the likes of Old Glory & Foundry who make metal 25/28mm hitoricals.
