Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy (NOT Warhammer 40K - so far anyway) may be about to utterly discard their lore going back more than three decades. All those lawsuits, all those threats, all that ruthless suppression of competitors and fanfic, just to end by saying "never mind".
As many have observed, all that leaves them with is some startup replacement, no social media, no advertising skills, crimped retail supplies, an alienated base with obsolete armies and a miniatures line that is about 200 - 500% overpriced when compared with equal quality competitors. It is possible to buy single pack metal roleplaying figures for at the same price as Games Workshop's rank and file plastics. I predict a short, feeble death with a whimper, not with a bang to GW's coming WHFB 9th edition. I'm looking at Kings of War to fill the niche.
So long Felix, so long Gotrek. No Slayer lasts forever.
