This month's WD mentions Rick's still doing the Warhammer Forge books - thought he wasn't? Anybody got any more info?

I think White Dwarf is sent to the printers 3 or more months in advance.

White Dwarf is written 3 months in advance, so this issue was written before Rick was fired.

FFS. Got my hopes up for a quality product then.

well Rik would still have done some of the work, though rumour has it that one of the reasons he did go was because of the quality.....

Do you mean *he* wasn't happy with the quality, or GW wasn't happy?

Isn't he busy making a new ruleset for warlord games?

So Rick was fired? What happend exactly. I know he was annoyed that Warhammer Forge, story wise at least, would not go in the direction he wanted. Is there something else to it?

Yes, with Alessio as I understand it. Called Hail Caesar!

there was an extensive Rick thread when it happened...maybe a search would help

I believe they are obliged to say that Rick Priestley was involved with the book, I would be very surprised if when it comes out Alan is the only one credited as author.

Rick could sue their ass off if they even tried that. Copyright in the UK exists as soon as you write something. While if you're writing for someone like GW using their IP you don't own the copyright to the ideas included within (due to your contract), you're still legally entitled to be recognised as the author of the work. Regardless of whether you work for the company still or not.
