Great stuff... I am though not happy with the current 40k trend, seems to be getting more Marine ish.... needs more Xenos to be expanded upon, I know space marine are awesome and all but they could easily make the Eldar just as badass if they took their time with it.

GW is getting a bit weird all over the place right now. They are jumping on the social justice band wagon. Their marketing is geared more towards children. Their universe is getting less ruthless. Consequences don't feel as real. Half their inventory is out of stock all the time, Box sets are being discontinued after only running a couple months, with no suitable replacements. The one physical store in Ottawa has ONE staff member. open to close 7 days a week. 1 on call for when he needs a day off. Cheap... Half their displays are unpainted, and gone are the days where you can take a friend, and ask "What is warhammer?" and get a game in to see if they like it before spending a few hundred dollars/hours getting him set up.

 

I'm having second thoughts about starting a second army.

 

I agree that Eldar badly need updates. Their models are about 15 years old now.

thats the US though, UK is pretty good with the stores, Havent had an issue but I haven been in one since a year ago and the lockdown isnt helping with the team aspect, we talking about a game where people are close to each other and handle dice together :D 

 

they may have to use electronic dice from what I hear...

IMO They should just put tournaments on hold or now.

 

What are they gonna do? Put everyone in a glass box nice and socially distanced? Just shelve it and let gamer groups play casual for a bit. Plus they can let 9th run longer and sell more of the current line up.

 

That's cool your in the UK. Have you gone to their headquarters before?

nothing special really (well for me it is) but its nifty to me since warhammer is pretty "important" part of my life i could say, it was a set of dice... nothing major but special edition sort of thing... nice to have a memory of warhammer with me at all times, I havent played in years and I actually about a year ago donated my whole collection to a local club for anyone to use and play (some was the new AoS stuff and old stuff) i think they put it as a prize for a tournement or something, dont know,  I felt since I wasnt using it someone else will, I know I could have made money on it but I didnt care :D
