I am sure this got pointed out long ago and I missed it/did not see it on older posts...

What happened to all the articles of GW web site? The only ones I cna find are the errata and FAQs. No Apocalypse formations/data sheets, no modeling articles, nor painting articles, etc. Did they announce some plan to alter them or make them available somewhere else? Or am I blind and just cannot find the link. Any help would be appreciated.

Apocalypse Datasheets are still there, just a little inconvenient to find.

Link is here - http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?categoryId=cat440347a&aId=3400020

It's been awhile since they have had any really substantial hobby articles on their website however.

GW probably wants us to buy their "how to paint citadel miniatures" books because there aren't any far better painting and sculpting articles for free on the internet.
Oh wait. There are. Well, bad for GW i supose :D

Strangely enough, I noticed this yesterday as well. The wealth (or dearth depending on your point of view) of "Gaming" and "Modelling" information has been completely extracted from the site. I know I saved a few Masterclass articles on Orks when I collected them, but they definitely can't be found on the site anymore.

There is still a smattering of articles however on the web server if you want to trawl through. You can do an Advanced Search using most search engines (like google), Select file type .PDF, and then narrow search to games-workshop.com . There are still a few modelling and gaming on the main site.

I have also found some old articles on this site: http://www.lski.org/pictures/tabletopgaming/GW/

And through the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/web/20070626164003/http://us.games-workshop.com/games/40K/default.htm

I honestly expected them to be back after a while, due to the change in the paint line. From what it seems so far, that's not going to happen, which is sad, as those articles on painting were invaluable.

Most of them were getting a bit aged. Maybe they'll update them.

Checked on the Apoc datasheets today, and they are now not even accessible via the above link. Anyone know of another way to access them?

I would imagine that is you do a .PDF search using the formation name and under the games-workshop.com heading you should be able to find them.

I was thinking similarly which is why since I had some time I thought I would start putting up some of the direct links to some of the painting articles. This will be a Work in Progress but I think as long as they don't do a server cleanup (who ever does that?) these links should endure.
