Now that Space Hulk is out of the "Mystery Box" what are you most anticipating? What could GW release now that would knock your socks off?

Personally I'll smile when I get SH, however, my jaw will literally hit the floor when I hold a new Dark Eldar 'dex and see new DE plastics. How about you?

Considering the disappointment of SH, anything would probably wow me at this point. Space Wolves are next, after that, a Xenos race.

I cant wait for new Dark Eldar, I like to play them right now because they are the most uncommon army to see in the store and people look at me like im insane for playing them.

From what I've heard 40k wise, its SW, Nids, BA.

I've also heard they are making certain changes to how carnifexs will work, and all I've been told is "think lemon russes"

some actual support for the "specialist games" haven't seen anything new for them in ages except another re-sculpt of a bloodbowl special character player...... big whoop, I don't play bloodbowl, and if i did the griff and zug figures i already had would work just fine!!!!

What would REALLY "wow" me would be for them to redo the extra games such as necromunda and bood bowl with new fields, models and the works. I like the living rulebooks online but to release them in sets and give them support once more would be a godsend to us gamers and a LOT of extra padding for the GW wallets.

DinoDoc
19-08-2009, 03:52
I would actually like some new Arbites sculpts. A judge etc. would make for the basis of an interesting WH army.

DuskRaider
19-08-2009, 04:02
I'd love to see them do a Kill Teams expansion. I think this was discussed a week or so ago, but something like a skirmish size with the ability to upgrade your warband. That would be nifty.

So, so true! I'm really tempted to get SH purely for the minitures. Stuff the actual game!

The only reason I might not would be that they release the minitures when they do the new codecies (plus I don't really want blood angels, I want the Zso Sahaal's Nightlords, but the poses are so cool I might just over look that!

DinoDoc
19-08-2009, 04:28
@ Splata: I feel the sameway. It's not just the BA figs that appeal to me and believe me when I say they do. If I played 'nids, the game would just as likely beat me and take my lunch money.

Chaos Legion Codex(icies). Specifically World Eaters...

Damon.
I don't see the point. Most of the Legions had one or two units which defined them(which admittedly could be covered in the main CSM Codex, if it had been done slightly better). It'd be a pointless back-up of the codex schedule, and would play merry hell with the update schedule.

I disagree, as will most Legion players. Yes, -insert cult troop here- indicates -insert corresponding Legion- is being played, but most legion players would like to see flavorful variety. Right now, the only indication of say--a Thousand Sons force is Rubrics, Sorcerors and Marks of Tzeentch everywhere. However, those of us pushing for Legion codexes feel there's enough fluff and variety with each Legion to deserve at least an all-in-one Legion multidex, just like BA, DA, BT or even SW. With your line of thought, I could just as easily say:

Most of the non-codex Marines had one or two units which defined them(which admittedly could be covered with the main SM Codex, if it had been done slightly better). It'd be a pointless back-up of the codex schedule, and play merry hell with the update schedule. **



Back to the OP, I think SW, Nids, BA, then DE. As an Inquisiton player, we feel the same pain as other unupdated armies (except the poor DE players and Necrons). I hope we get our update fairly soon, but I wouldn't begrudge other codexes from getting them first if they really need it, or from new ideas delaying what I know will unfortunately be at least 2010-2011.

**In no way do I actually believe this.

I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment that the non-codex Marines getting their own books is relic that needs to be forgotten soon. It'd be easier just to make one larger book that contained the Loyalists since there are only so many ways you can write the Tactical Squad Entries for the essentially the same army.

That said, the Chaos book's primary issue is that it cut the Traitor Legion background back heavily and replaced it with the Renegades, who while not for lack of trying, were not as popular as the Legions who they replaced as the focus of CSM. The background should focus on the Legions, though Renegades should get there moment too. But going back to Legion lists? I don't want to go back to those days.

I would really have to say its a game of silly buggers. The last CSM book broke the Legion down into their stereotypes, and they've stuck. Death Guard are Plague Marines, World Eaters are Berzerkers, Emperor's Children are Noise Marines, and Thousand Sons are Rubric Marines, Iron Warriors heavy support , Word Bearers undivided with a rainbow of daemons, Alpha Legion infiltrators and cultist mobs, Night Lords Raptors and infiltrators, Black Legion running Undivided with supporting Cult Troops. Did I miss much? The key thing was that these armies relied on the same units with variations provided by marks and the frankly overly specific army theme lists that described each list.

There's no reason to make a Legion specific book. I'd think it make more sense just to write the next CSM book with both the Traiors and Renegades in mind, rather than have two Chaos codexes that use pretty much the same units with slight variations, like the Loyalists.

A repackaging of Epic, a push to marketing, an update on some older Titans, more armies... yes. I'd buy that in a second. Maybe even some GW Epic-40k terrain to go along with, heck they could fit an Imperial Sector on a sprue :)

19-08-2009, 05:22
Next is SW for sure, then im positive its either Crons or DE next, not Nids (Nids are underpowered if anything at the moment, but only because of the stupid glancing rule changes and the whole running thing, making them too expensive for their fleet and their Venom Cannon which can only glance > <)

I don't mean to cause a Chaos Codex argument, apologies. I'm actually slightly tempted by BFG, but I'd love to see some Specialist Games love--maybe the reason they haven't gotten into it is because they can't plaster Ultramarine posters as easily? :P

Well not so much more armies but redoing the existing ones - especially Nids & Chaos.

I could just see where that was going to end up... :D

I'd also like to see BFG, especially if the ships were all released in plastic (probably the only realistic way I could afford the Eldar fleet I want).

Born Again
19-08-2009, 08:16
Yeah, I just mainly want to see the new DE stuff. That'll get me excited for sure. Apart from that I agree on the Specialist Games comments, mostly epic and BFG for personal preference. After that, only once all the important stuff is out of the way, I'd be happy with chaos legion codicies. I want them, but no sense in holding up other things for it.

DonkeyMan
19-08-2009, 08:29
A new Warhammer Quest would do it for me.

I played Warhammer Quest and Space Hulk a lot and I did lend out both games to friends with the final result of to never get them back. :(

New Space Hulk is now pre-ordered, so I hope to be able to do the same for Warhammer Quest one day. :)

19-08-2009, 10:06
Epic has not long been rereleased and although I love the game, I dont think it was a massive success. I hardly see anyone playing it. BFG does seem more popular (love that too) and would be good for a new version - but not sure it actually needs one.

I want Dark Eldar updated next. But to be honest I have something of most things - so there's always sommet I'm interested in (apart from marines).

I dont see why people think Chaos should get legion specific books. Eldar have a decent amount of background for different craftworlds and were consolidated too. To be honest I'd rather marines get consolidated more. Maybe into at most 3 codex. Space marine (ultra, fists, salamander etc) Angels (DA, BA), and non codex astartes (Wolves, templars).

Again - Orks too have lost clan specifics and are consolodated into one.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this before. I used to play this almost every day with a couple of my brothers and made huge campaigns and stuff. Even better was that non-Warhammer players could play it too. Warhammer Quest would be the best release ever.

19-08-2009, 10:21
If Dark Eldar or Necrons had an awesome release, I fear for my wallet and sanity.

Carlos
19-08-2009, 10:32
Warhammer Quest or even Heroquest. If they put the box set up for limited order but then PDF'd the rule set and floor tiles for printing and card mounting we could just use regular fantasy models. This would work exceptinally well for the warrior packs too. What do they have to lose? If anything they would sell more Fantasy miniatures.

oh god no.,.... At first I was interested hearing that the guy writing the Imperial guard codex is going to write Tyranids, but lets not make the Tyranids a Guard clone....
Don't fix what is not broken! Carnifices are 100% fine now.. there doesn't need to be changed anything except get rid of the useless biomorphs (weapons are a different matter)


Something that doesn't involve space marines

Amen

I myself am very eager to get to know what 4 new species in the Tyranid codex will show up... and I hope we see no "Ogrins" or "Storm Troopers" in our Tyranid Codex! XD (I am looking at YOU Biovore and spore mine!!)

My bet is Trigon and Malanthrope.. the other two? Well I can only gues...

LonelyPath
19-08-2009, 12:13

EVIL INC
19-08-2009, 12:17
The biggest reason you dont see many people playing specialist games is because of the lack of support.
In every store I have ever seen who ran the games, the populous LOVED them.People played them in addition to thier reguler mainstream army games so GW did not lose out on sales for them but only gained in sales in selling the specialist games. The specialist games sales nicely padded the profit margins of the shops as people bought ADDITIONAL models whether it was the "official" gangs or teams or additional fantasy/40k sets to convert.
The most easy and populer ones were the "buildup" gmes like necromundam mordhiem and bloodbowl but I have seen such games as epic (I spent WELL 1k on that game alone when I played it) and BFG.
Get them white dwarf action, rguler new models and new starter sets. You all knowthey would not even have to have thier designers switch projects. The world has enough freelance people that would love to make models and would be content with a small retainer and bragging rights of thier work being mainstream. Heck, even thier main designers could do it in thier spare time a piece at a time to distract them from the mononey of working purely on a single full army. Heck, Zug was just re-released and there was a huge splash as people loved it and begged for more. The introduction of that single model caused a huge splash and it was the first time in HOW many years BB was even MENTIONED in white dwarf?
Were GW to start supporting them, they could turn a tidy extra profit. Not only would they be selling large ammounts of models in ADDITION to what they are already selling but they would have a great new set of "draws" to get new players to the hobby as people who want to try out miniatures games but didnt want to risk the big bucks for a whole army would have a starter game to try out and get introduced (hooked) with.

Chaos Legion Codex(icies). Specifically World Eaters...

Damon.

This is a whish-list not a fact.
After space Hulk Space wolves are coming in October with a release of some WOTR miniatures. In November there will be the skaven and in December no release will come: there are going to be some miniatures but nothing newas in codex contest. January and February will be fairly the same but there could be a WOTR or fantasy release. In March-April most clues say that there are going to be necrons. After this there is going to be a pause of one month. In June-July the codex dark eldar will be release and followed by codex tyranids.

Other codexes that will be re-done are tau and SM chapter that will preferably have a release all toghether.

Hope this answers questions and helps.

Lotoc

EDIT: For those of you who think this: 'Chaos Legion Codex(icies). Specifically World Eaters...'
can stay calm because GW isn't going to do a thing like that. The chaos codex of now is more than wonderful and capable of putting of a specified legion army.

I'm going for Warhammer Quest too. Still have the original with all expansions and play it every now and then. HeroQuest would be nice also...

19-08-2009, 13:24
Dark Eldar or Necron would be the only thing to wow me.

Can you give your sources ? It has been said several times that necrons and DE aren't expected until 2011 (at least). One of those saying that is the Dude, and he's usually quite well informed...

Col_Festus
19-08-2009, 13:41
I personally would love to see them stop pumping out expansions and super heavy kits and focus back on the core game.

With that in mind I would love for them to finish with Blood Angels and call it a day with marines. The Xenos definitely need their time in the sun, and hell I'm and imperial player. My guard are always tired of being called "traitors" simply because their are only marine players around so instantly I become traitor guard ><.. One of these days l'll make that true! That being said I would also love to see a ******* Lost and the Damned dex. Easily the most numerous chaos faction in the galaxy and they dont have an army list..
I really hope they put a hold on releasing new expansions until they can get their core rules into tip top shape.. (core rules being Dexs and FAQs along with new minis that need them)

Jagged
19-08-2009, 13:47
Necromunda would be nice but I am not sure if thats cuz I want to play the game or just get GW producing those oh-so-useful sprues :)

I'd love to see some plastic BFG, assuming they would be cheaper that is!

Zanzibarthefirst
19-08-2009, 13:55
More focus on SG woudl be nice but i'd also like to see kill-teams. Although I doubt that that would make much money for GW so it'll never happen

Shatter
19-08-2009, 14:01
The thing about BA is that with a few tweaks and some updates, it wouldn't be a hard codex to release. Black Templar would most likely just need updates to bring them in line with 5th Ed, and DA would need...well..DA would need a lot.

I do agree they need to stop focusing so much on Marines. We have how many Xenos codices in need of updates? Like...ALL of them?

HereticLosMorte
19-08-2009, 14:10
i would like to see an update to the inquisitor game. not necessarily the rules, but i would like a character/armory points list so that games could balance out, instead of not really knowing how much more overpowered a warband/character is. if something like this is out, i'm sorry for posting this, and plz send me a link to it in PM's.

although i don't play 40k, i would like to see, in this order: new DE, new necrons, new nids (codex at least), new chaos legions book.

for fantasy, which i play now, i would like to see a dark elf dragon (currently converted HE one), DE chariot update, chaos dwarfs (1st), and possibly some other new models for units in the game that don't currently have anything.

Or at least publish the character pack rules as PDFs

Shatter
19-08-2009, 14:17
Unfortunately, they'll never update that way. Because GW follows their tradition of Imperial, Non-Imperial, Imperial, Non-Imperial.

When it should be: Imperial, Non-Imperial, Non-Imperial, Imperial

At the least.

For Fantasy, I'd be interested to see how/if they update Brets in the near future.

Mortified Penguin
19-08-2009, 15:24
yeah so far it's been space marine, space marine, space marine, space marine, imperial guard (well you get the idea) ;). Didn't GW release some blood bowl minis last year?

Shatter
19-08-2009, 15:33
That's about the only SG support they give now, is Blood Bowl.

Imperialis_Dominatus
19-08-2009, 16:18
I'm kind of hoping for Dark Eldar but it's probably those sculpts from years ago still teasing me. I don't play them but I think GW doing the effort of giving DE a Codex would revitalize the confidence their playerbase has... lost. Over and over and over again.

I'd like to see an expansion into the Pre-Heresy period. Maybe along the lines of Inquisitor, or Necromander, (excuse the spelling there) with a Pre-Heresy SM Box set, and vehicles. ie Jet Bikes....

Traiter Guard would also be a good move... Yes I know you can model most of these yourself, but it's time consuming and with work. I simply dont have the time.

MajorWesJanson
19-08-2009, 17:43

I'll go with Warhammer Quest, which has already been pointed out.

Alongside Quest, I'd be curious to see a remake of Space Crusade. Somehow that game has more appeal to me than Space Hulk.

I'm pretty happy with what the old BloodBowl box set has to offer. I'm not sure it really needs to be re-made (the board and miniatures still work perfectly fine).

A re-release of necromunda, mordehim or gorkamorka (with as nice minis at those in SH!). That would wow me. Something brand new, like a new and interesting game would also wow me (if it was done well).

Trogdor
19-08-2009, 20:58
When is The Hobbit released? I ask because that might influence the decision on what is the next big box set, if there is one. Myself, I'd like to see Man'O'War redone. Just because.

19-08-2009, 21:13
For non-40k I'd say an updated boxed version of adeptus titanicus because heck it was darn cool. Also Man o'war (I loved that game).

For 40k great-coat guard because wargames factory is taking an age to make theirs or *dreams* plastic praetorians (never going to happen!) or even just some 40k imperial navy figures (think ships officers, armsmen etc).

spetswalshe
19-08-2009, 21:34
When I read the thread title, I immediately went with Warhammer Quest, because it's the SH analogue. Though thinking about it, Specialist Games in general. You know, Mordheim, Necromunda, Blood Bowl (though BB seems to have a very dedicated following still). Not Gorkamorka, though. That was a bit silly.

Kill-teams would suit me, or some kind of Warhammer Skirmish game. Something small scale; I'm sick of every new development needing progressively more massive armies. Ten models per side is enough for me.

gunmonkey
19-08-2009, 21:34
Gotta put my vote in for more Mordheim and Necromunda love, only games I consider playing, though Space Hulk is nice that its self contained....hrm.....NO....must resit urge to max out credit card again!!


What would really wow me would be GW releasing small Bitz packs to help convertors for Necro gangs: if the great coats ever come out, have a 3 sprue of 8 plasitc bald heads with the Delaque goggles, compact size heavy weapons sprues that a mini can carry in 2 hands rather than the big emplacement weapons IG have now, hell even bring out the weapon sprues for the newer Orlocks/ Goliaths as Bitz.

Most of the SG dont need a massive overhaul of figures (except Epic, Warmaster and BFG) just a few extras to make the gangs look less like IG miniatures with the insignias filed down. ForgeWorld are doing us a great service with the Chaos Renegades stuff.

Seconded. :cries:

Very disappointing.

Still love the Hulk though.

I am interested in the rpg, Rogue Trader, hope it has some figure releases too so you can do some layouts using 40k props. Mind you I just love rule books.:D So a box with some rules in it.;)

BaloOrk
19-08-2009, 23:10
As said before, what would "wow" me the most would be a re-release of Necromunda.
With stunning terrain... and gorgeous models... (that could double as guardsmen or 40k civilians. and throw in some gribblies that could work with warhammer too :))

Or... a completly new race(xeno) for 40k, right out of the blue.

Either one would burn my wallet.

But all this is just another wishlisting... and i dont think Santa is on GW`s payroll...

For me I am dissapointed about Space Hulk, I was hoping it was gonna be about $60-80 and be a great intro to 40k game. Alot of people dont wanna dish out $350+ dollars for an army, but if they get SH and get hooked then more players will get into 40k. Sadly 100$ is just to much for me.

I really excited about Space Wolves.

As a Eldar player I really wanna see DE get refreshed, they deserve it most.

And I would like to see Nids done more according to thier fluff (Hordes of gaunts and such)

If they were to do a new army I would want Ad Mech.

well I am guessing the leman russ comment about Carnifex'es is going to mean that you can take 1-3 to one choice slot (be it heavy or elite, or whatever they do with it) but I had kind of assumed they would be doing that anyway in order to give the nids the kind of flexibility that we have been seeing from Guard and Ork Codices where there are many ways to make a pie.

Space Hulk really impressed me. (sculpts are just very very pretty)
in terms of what will *wow* me, well....

A brand new 40k army would knock my socks off. (in all honesty either fantasy or 40k, but as we are in a 40k thread...)
Grey Knight plastics would give me heart palpitations.

However, knowing how much my Inner Geek is bigger than my wallet, when I see the New Dark Eldar sculpts and Codex (because I have *absolute* faith that when it comes out is IS going to be a winner) I might actually involuntarily impoverish myself and become so poor that I can't even afford air, whilst simultaneously becoming the new owner of many thousands of points of sadistic space elves.

(please 2010, please, I have staved off buying until the new stuff comes out.)


Other than the above, backing up the black library literature with one off, or series linked graphic novels would be pretty spanky. (Can't see them ever doing it though, I know several people who would be all over them like a rash if they did ever)

(yes it's wishlisting, pretty much all of it, but then that tends to be the sort of thing that will make players go "wow", after all people didn't really expect Space Hulk a year or two ago and the feeding frenzy has been amazing, <see most users ever online :) >

This is a whish-list not a fact.


The question was "what can GW do to knock your socks off next?" I answered it, in a way that would knock my socks off. I don't think the question was looking for factual products coming out.

Well a what do you think a xenos race would be, i cant imagine anything other than tyranids.

Well, after 5 minutes of thinking, what about an race with only armour value models?
I have absolutly no idea what they would look like, but they wouldnt be humanoid. :cool:

Say... basic infantry would be armour 7-8 allround... (with armor save) etc.... hmmm... i might be on to something here.
Dang... ive got so much time consuming stuff to do at the moment(like shiite work), ill work more on this idea later...
Unless someone alredy posted a similar thing in the "Rules Development Forum", you heard it here first :D

I would like to see an arbites box set, something big. (say 150us range)

it would contain a modular arbites precinct
The building would be standalone, and idealy have interior detail.
being modular you could attach two of them together and have a building twice the size.

The box would also contain

1 marshal (would be cool if the plastic frame had a marshal on a bike as well as on foot, and a cyber dog)

1 10 man squad with shotguns. (on 2 frames so they could later sell them 5 at a time)
1 5 man squad with shock mauls and suppression shields. (on 1 frame so they could later sell them 5 at a time)

With this set they could put in a small booklet that details the squads (like the assassins codex from years ago) and include a scenario maybe like the final assault on precinct 134 a last ditch stand against cultists, genestealers what ever.

I disagree, as will most Legion players. Yes, -insert cult troop here- indicates -insert corresponding Legion- is being played, but most legion players would like to see flavorful variety. Right now, the only indication of say--a Thousand Sons force is Rubrics, Sorcerors and Marks of Tzeentch everywhere. However, those of us pushing for Legion codexes feel there's enough fluff and variety with each Legion to deserve at least an all-in-one Legion multidex, just like BA, DA, BT or even SW. With your line of thought, I could just as easily say:

Most of the non-codex Marines had one or two units which defined them(which admittedly could be covered with the main SM Codex, if it had been done slightly better). It'd be a pointless back-up of the codex schedule, and play merry hell with the update schedule. **


Back to the OP, I think SW, Nids, BA, then DE. As an Inquisiton player, we feel the same pain as other unupdated armies (except the poor DE players and Necrons). I hope we get our update fairly soon, but I wouldn't begrudge other codexes from getting them first if they really need it, or from new ideas delaying what I know will unfortunately be at least 2010-2011.

**In no way do I actually believe this.

The non codex marines don't deserve their own codex as they ARE in fact defined by one shallow trait. One codex for Marines and one for Chaos Marines work fine. The Space Woof codex is definitely a pointless backup of the update schedule. Marines who like to drink and fight and play with dogs get their own codex? Purely for financial reasons...

A new horrific and brutal looking abstract xeno race that move by means other than Legs.

Failing that (obviously), finishing the Epic miniature-line with Tau/Necrons/Sisters/GreyKnights/Dark Eldar would make me a happy chap.

they wont redo specialist games for the simple reason of it doesnt make them any money

eg i go buy a blood bowl team 30 im done or ill get a necromunda gang 30 im done.

where as if i want a 40k army then i spend around 150 to 200 keep adding to it...

which in my appinion is a big shame

but a redone skaven book would do me that said my sw will need redoing

Anyone would think GW were a business or something :rolleyes:

What would blow my socks off? There's loads of stuff!

Knight Paladins for Apoc.
Plastic Necromunda sets.
Undivided Legion Characters! Just imagine an Iron Warriors Terminator with servo arms or Word Bearers Dark Apostle, mmmm.
As most people have said, Dark Eldar.

only joking...
20-08-2009, 23:58
My local staff inform me that both BA and 'Nids are next.

What I would actually like to see for 40k next would be plastic greatcoat guard and above all DE (unlikely :rolleyes:).

Well space wolves are next... then necrons(?) nids, tau, dark eldar, inquisition... in between these i'd like to see a new updated edition of Necromunda.

Or... who remembers 'Curse of the Mummy' ? with the 3d card board Pyrimid.

Warhammer Quest or even Heroquest. If they put the box set up for limited order but then PDF'd the rule set and floor tiles for printing and card mounting we could just use regular fantasy models. This would work exceptinally well for the warrior packs too. What do they have to lose? If anything they would sell more Fantasy miniatures.

I still have a rulebook for advanced heroquest kicking around..... no dungeon tiles though... I would love to see this and Warhammer Quest re-released and updated..... but i don't see GW doing it as there isn't enough moneygrabbing potential in either of them......:(

Something that would, personally, make me really happy? Probably more support for Epic or some "insert faction here" marines upgrade kit for pre-heresy. Like, with MK.II - IV armour, some nice wargear etc.

I thought most people knew it was nids then Blood Angels next year. I would really love a new bfg or necromunda though.

Now that it's revealed as Space Hulk, I'm still waiting for all those people who said it wasn't Space Hulk to eat their own words.

Also, I'm wishing for more specialist games stuff.

As others have said some support for the specialist games would be nice. However I'm still waiting on my Dark Eldar codex.

It has probably been said many times by now, but it definitely would be a new Dark Eldar codex.

Or plastic Sisters.

An working ruleset for the ME/PE they do, also some scenario books for both (or all) systems, the 40k 3 missions thing is annoying as hell and duller than 4th eds way.

Are you sure spiky marines needs their own codex? They can pretty much be played using the SM codex and a diffrent paint job.

More skirmish level games. Don't remake Necromunda, reinvent it.

Something historic - pre-pre-heresy. Give us techno barbarian skirmishes :)

Plastic warhound. Come on, stuff the thunderhawk, I want a titan.
Also a brand new game. I mean when was the last time they released a brand new game? 5 Armies, who cares. I mean I understand the clamour for AHQ/WQ updates after SH, but what about a shiny new thing? Really the last new game with a 40k setting must have been what, Bomberz over Da Sulpha River? Gorkamorka? I want a new game.

If the Chaos SM codex were written for it, could it not support both renegade and loyalist 'non-conformers'? :angel:

SWs are now getting giant riding wolves (Steeds of some type). They have Sagas (Blessings of their Power). Probably different psyhic powers and the potential for were-marines (DPs?)

I mean it did take me a moment or two to realise that the SWs in the Planetstrike spread were SWs and not chaos marines. :evilgrin:

BT meanwhile could field Arch-Angels and Living Saints (GDs and DPs), load out for more HTH, etc? And ignore psychic powers (or pulll a Sisters of Battle 'we're not psykers, it is a miracle!')

Please note the above is a very tongue in cheek suggestion. No doubt their would be problems and some inconsistency but that might be an opportunity to create new fluff or character for one's army.

My guess is, considering how popular Space Hulk has been - that GW will be looking at another game which isn't tied to a particular army.

I know of dedicated non-40K players who are still buying this game.

Can't say the same for something like pre-Heresy SM kits or a DE codex.

Depends if they happen to have an overall product strategy.

If they can produce a game that can borrow or supplement the miniatures from their main lines, that would have been my recommendation (if I happen to be on the Board).

A re-release of the original Orlock minis, some new buildings and, the one I want the most, new weapons sprues for Necromunda. Not gonna happen, but a guy can dream.

Definately plastic SOB! I used to love to play BFG as well wen it was first out I'd like to see many more variations of ship kits for that for all races, preferably in plastic. Perhaps as both BFG and W40k are both in the same setting / universe when they redo the codex for each race they could combine them and have a section for the ships of each race as part of it, including the stats for BFG. That would update both lines as they went along.
