    New forgeworld website is up [CLOSED]

    Not sure if it has been posted. The new layout is up and running though. It is such a nice upgrade from the old one!

    Re: New forgewolrd website is up

    Yay: It looks a little nicer
    Nay: They seem to have removed lots of photographs of their products from the website meaning that (especially with conversion packs) it is hard to tell what you are actually buying.

    Hopefully they'll fix that soon.
    ...and not a single damn was given that day.

    Re: New forgewolrd website is up

    Downloads section is missing. I rang and asked them, apparently it'll be gone for a few weeks but when it's added back in they expect it to have some of the new update PDFs for the older IA books. Whether this means DKoK and Renegades are getting their updates in a few weeks they couldn't tell me, however ...

    I'm amazed this one got past even teaboy casual checking. For instance, missing game logos on all the game top level category pages ...

    That's evidence of a "rush to printing". I'm sure they'll catch the bugs and fix it soon enough. Overall a huge improvement over the previous html-only site, and about darn time.

    Looks nicer, but I never really had anything against the old site. Yes, it was crappy, but I was interested in the product, not the site.

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    This new layout is a lot easier to navigate than the old one - have to wait and see how well the old wind-up 'puters at work handle it on my lunchbreak tomorrow though ;-)

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    The new website must have some sort of subliminal messaging . . . Seeing items in the new layout makes the prices seem more reasonable than I found them on the old website. This could be bad for my wallet. _"

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    I'm assuming the arrows on the individual item pages mean that more photos of each item will be avaliable later. Sometimes I just like to look at pictures of shiny things.

    Otherwise a very nice website.

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    I do hope they bring all the photos back! Not bothered either way about the design really as its the models thats important.

    I notice the Epic section is still listed as Epic 40,000 despite the current version of the game having been Epic Armageddon for the last 5 years and they then state epic is 10mm scale rather than the 6mm it actually is. They could do a better job at marketing GWs best game by far, ah well...

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    I am interested in the Exorcist Conversion Kit for Witch Hunters yet I have no idea what that contains apart from the obvious missile launcher from the picture.

    Can anyone tell me?

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    ATTENTION: LITTLE THUMNAILS YOU CAN CLICK ON AND DIRECTION ARROWS MEANS THAT MORE PHOTOS WILL BE ADDED!!! I'm really amazed people would think otherwise or question the formatting...

    All in all I feel as though this is a brilliant 'upgrade' to the FW website. SOOO much easier to navigate, view and use! Kudos, FW! Now, you'll get a cookie when I get my DKoK update...

    Pros:
    Looks great.
    Easy to navigate and see lots of things can be viewed quickly.
    Better potential for content growth.

    Cons:
    Sore lack of hobby related stuff such as rules.
    Currently too few images of some models.

    Re: New forgeworld website is up

    After all these years a new site...wow I like it, but I also like the old one.
    Navigation is better, but I'll have to test it out some more. First impression are good.

    Funny btw that FW didn't have to take their old site down for the new site, while BL's site has been down for almost six months before an update.
