So what's this special release that GW have planned?
« on: September 14, 2011, 08:12:00 AM »
Apologies if this has already been raised elsewhere, but I've heard through the rumour grapevine that GW are planning another special edition boxset release in the next couple of weeks.

Does anyone have any details as to what it might me?

Space Hulk was an awesome hit.

I hope its something like Mordhiem or Tallisman

Thoughts?

It's apparently naval themed.

All the rumors say it's not Man o' War, but a new naval game.

Presumably everything will be revealed on Saturday.

Looking forward to it.  Supposably another limited release.

Speaking of which, I have really enjoyed playing Space Hulk.  Need to crack that open for another game sometime soon.

It's basically Man'o'war.

Is it in the same scale as Man o War?
GW can pucker their skanky lips and suck my arse.

He's French. Since when do his plans have to be feasible?

We should find out tomorrow.

Where have you been hiding?

Ignoring the degrading of this site, which is turning into a mini-Warseer, is not hiding.

Hmm? Are we talking about the Electors Forum? Because the Tavern and the Back Table seem fine as always. I don't really go to this other place on the forum often...

Many hobbiests I spoke with mentioned that Space Hulk tanked.  Not sure if that was from GW's perspective or at the shop level, but most seem to claim it was a shitty thing to get involved in.

You can find them in massive heaps throughout NEw ENgland.  Of course those are the only hobby shop owners I have spoken too.  Perhaps everywhere else sold like dynamite?  I think GW moved theirs, but the shops are sitting on them.

I could certainly buy you one and mail it.  I have my copy, but thats it.  I don't personally have spares!

I know the models sell for a lot, but the boxes are plentiful here.

Oh, it's on the GW site now. 70.

It appears to contain a robot squid.
