Warbands...?

Well, the UK site is rarely upgraded. The didn't even upgrade it with the new Deamons!
So, uk.games-workshop.com is almost dead.
www.games-workshop.com, lives,though. Althouhgh with a few articles etc.

It looks like GW is moving towards a Single website model instead of one for each major region.

I don't think this is the smartest thing GW has done... :D

Not to mention it is now a big online storefront instead of a place to go and read about interesting topics concerning the hobby. It is all "Look at the standard models, they are this much." No new conversion articles or battle reports that I can find. They removed many of the extra rules they had up there, like the Warbands rules. Thankfully I downloaded many of those a LONG time ago.

I still have a copy of the warbands rules, which is fortunate. However, I'd really like them to update the rules for the new army lists, and since they've taken it down completely, maybe do a rewrite of the whole thing.

No, Warbands is 200-500 point games using mainly the normal rules (some modifications).

I'd say warbands is about halfway between mordheim and true warhammer. Minimum unit sizes are smaller (three for infantry, two for cav, one for 40mm or larger bases), and there's a campaign system for hero growth (rpg-type system) as well as unit experience (they can become veterans).

It's really nice for getting people into the hobby, since the majority of the 'real' rules are used, but there are fewer models (and thus a smaller initial investment).
