Sorry to say brothers but the venerable last line of defense (and best place to find artciles easily enough) has been attacked and now redirects to the new site, our prayers are with those who have lost something with this tragedy, be it how to paint a tree, or a hard to find pdf of a hard to find character, it was always there for us, its crumbling pages a silent sanctuary that does not judge, does not show you what would look nice next to that soon to be empty wallet, does not take too long to show you your path and does not pretend to be friendly.

A great site with humour and what many would attest to the better version of the site, being as it was outdated.

We will mourn its passing, goodbye GW Oz website...

But I guess the japanese site is still up?

By the way, while looking for the Coatl rules, I found a way to enter the deceased german site, however it wants some sort of password every time you click something. Now if anyone who has some hacking skills could break in there and retrieve the rules for me...

Coatl rules :O?

Yup, it told you how to create a Coatl and what it did. Visit the Fantasy General thread for the details. However, it appears the links are broken anyway. I doubt itīs still there...

I died, well I died a little when I was redirected to the poncy uk one. Remember how it had a black background and yellow script describing what goodies could be found that month, oh the shame, the shame of it all!

A single, solitary tear, coursed a mournful track down my cheek, but I did not flinch, merely accepted the loss of a close friend. He may have been a slow friend, resistant to change, but he was always there.

Oh, and Hellebore, I have those Spacehulk tiles ...

Hear, hear.

To a close friend!

But in all seriousness, it was the last bastion of that old GW, with humour, genuine cheerfulness, and personality.

It was the only place where you could get all those nice articles,alternative army lists and hobby advice. It will be missed.

At least I had already saved most of the articles I wanted (kinda like looting a dying person for their boots). Still, it (the site) had no further use for them.

There is no reason for me to use the current website. At all ( I don't pay full retail anymore - and shipping on top? madness).

I got a heads up and managed to download most of the articles that I needed. It's a shame, I used to enjoy da black gobbo on the U.S site as well, it was always worth a read.

The way back machine has a snapshot from Feburary 2008. All the content still seems to be on their servers, so you can still get it, so loot while the looting is good.

update :( sadly it seems alot of pictures and stuff arent there, I just choose a lucky section :(

Perhaps someone needs to made a "secret" mirror site, akin to a certain online image board. :D
