Forge World for Warhammer Fantasy

While the big news of weekend for most is unveiling of the mystery box as Space Hulk, its no surprise around here as it was confirmed to me at Chicago Games this year..Since I've been privy and correct on advanced info regarding 40K 5th Ed, War of the Ring, the Plastic Valkyrie and now Space Hulk I wish that people on the various forums would quit saying I'm full of shit, or making stuff up to get hits on my non monetized blog, when I post something on here its for your guys benefit, I already know whats up so the only reason I do it is to have something to talk about with my fellow bloggers/ readers- I have to tell you reading negative stuff about yourself is a real drag when all your trying to do keep people as interested as you are by telling let them what your lucky enough to find out. (ok enough crying)

Anyway the bigger new for me this weekend and I have thank 023 for this one, is that the word from Games Day Germany is that Forge World is branching out into two division one with remain as is with its 40K line while other will start producing stuff for WFB while also handling publications for Warhammer Historical. Since I dont play 40K, Forge World hasnt had much to offer us WFB players other than a half dozen monsters and some outdated terrain that you find better and cheaper elsewhere from competitors. I am glad to see Forge World step into creating fantasy pieces and although my wallet will surely regret it and the shipping snafu's and the potential of having to go the next Games Day to get in the next FW line are downright scary I am still really looking forward to see what they come up with!

I'm not sure what the original rumor means, if it's just models, rules, publications whatever. Just that they're going to have some sort of fantasy focused equivalent to what they do for 40k.

As far as the historicals (WHW), I have no idea what's going on with that or how it fits into this new arrangement. Seems strange since it was until recently its own thing and was just rolled into FW. Not much to do but wait and see.

It be great if they did some these hardcover Siege of Vraks type books with accompanying models, well have to see but I take any mention of WFB from FW as good sign as right now its beyond stagnant.
