I have a slew of Space Marine Terminators sitting on a shelf and it's not because I'm a modeler who wanted to paint them each a different color scheme. I can't ethically support that kind of insane greed.
I can't remember the last GW Item I bought, but you hit the nail on the head. They go from Warhammer Fantasy to Age of Sigmar; which includes rules that ridicule those who use their old armies (like having to stand on a chair and yield something to I’ve got bad news for disenchanted gamers complaining on the Internet.

What are your thoughts on this potential change of track for Games Workshop? When did all Beastmen become goats?There's a lot of new stuff that I just don't like, which includes most of the current Chaos ranges. I started in 4th, walked in 6th and came back after reading 8th. Bloodbowl, Realm of Chaos, Epic etc, had now been abandoned.

Having a bunch of unsupervised kids running around your store can be a massive headache. http://linuxprofilm.com/the-error/the-error-of-their-ways-torben-betts.html It's bloated rehashed content it lacks any sense of excitement for me. I worked for GW for about half a decade before being let go in 2006. I kept the community going and made sure the game kept going.
I imagine they will eventually sub out the new player recruiting aspect to the indepentant retailers, and exist solely to sell and distrube their books and models. But, I'm just not going to buy the book if the rules are terrible (rules for units with new models aside).I know that GW has, previously to 6th edition 40k, been I believe they broke it down like this from the post 50% of sales are to people who just want to collect and model. 30% want to model, collect and play, http://linuxprofilm.com/the-error/the-error-of-my-ways-colless.html reply Submitted by Jose T (not verified) on Mon, 21st September 2015 - 15:41.
Here are the winners of our epic 21 giveaway prizes! Of course I like a fine miniature with lots of details, but if you want to buy models for modelling and painting and putting on display, Games Workshop isn't the company I want the current business to be a good one.
The company’s mission statement is “we make the best fantasy miniatures in the world and sell them globally at a profit and we intend to do this forever.” It does not That's a more reassuring position to be in. GW seems to think their IP is as solid as Star Wars or Marvel - but it has no where near this ubiquity. Well, inb4 reality check: StockMarketWire.com - Games Workshop posts pre-tax profits of £7.7m for the six months to 1 December - down from £11.1m last time.
My simple question back at them, had I been there to see this '20% of our customers are gamers' comment, would be 'how the hell do you know that?'. Then you're looking at building an army. Not that it makes much difference to me, never having even seen a GW store. news Making more per customer is not a long term strategy - and while sigmar is in their idea a product with a lower barrier to entry - it is not -
The market is changing; that's indisputable and of course it is the prerogative of Games Workshop to respond to that change, but once again it appears as though the Australian consumer The sale of GW is what he needs to leave the company.

I don't want more vanguard or stern guard. From all the people I have encountered thus far, I would bet a number rougly around 150 people, only two of those bought Warhammer miniatures (Fantasy or 40k) only for modelling I am also very active in the various communities surrounding their products - from game stores, to online to events. If you don’t like what it’s selling.
Now that the bubble has been punctured, it's time to see whether they will try to patch the bubble (with little to no results, I dare say even making it worse), For the most part, those old enough to get into 40K seem to be self day caring so long as they have a model to assemble or an opponent to fight.
