Heh. Dave mentioned it about 3-4 weeks ago. That's how I got my WAB 2 book.

Yeah it is still not a bad deal. Dont know what is still left though. I got Over the Top, Gladiator, and Kampfgruppe Normandy.

I think Games Plus got some stuff in, not sure if Warmaster Ancients was part of that deal. i think they have some other stuff left.

At this point Ebay or other places like that are your best bet now.

Nobody knows. It looks like a liquidation, but there has been no announcement.

Nat, did you need the main rulebook for WMA? I actually have two copies, one that I had traded some stuff to a guy for and thought I had lost so I purchased a second copy. I'll let you have the more beat up copy when I dig it up for a reasonable price.

I agree with RichN. There was a huge amount of posting at Warseer when it first started. We just dont know. And the sale has been on now for about 2 months now. Gets one wondering.

It would suck if they did shut it down. It is about the only GW games I still care about. They still are talking about releasing stuff. Armies of Antiquitis(sp) being one. But then they have been playtesting stuff for Kampfgruppe Normandy while not renewing the contract for Warwick the author of the game. Strange.

Just another nail in the coffin for my support of GW.

Well that sucks. Not completely unexpected i guess. Good thing I have gotten everything I wanted.

What really sucks is that while they shut down WHH they are preventing anyone else from doing anything with the games. Example: Kampgruppe Normandy had the British Para list published in Wargames Illustrated a couple of months ago. Last month they got a letter from GW lawyers saying dont ever do that again or you will be in trouble. Now they shiut it down so nobody new can get their games. Typical.

Now they are raising prices on their main games and products. They must be insane. not many can afford the games and models. Shutting down fringes of the company. Can not fathom what they are thinking.

Makes me even more glad I just impulse ninja bought that Warmaster Medieval Armies for Nat while I was in Peoria. I'm also pretty much hitting the breaking point myself in a lot of ways. I won't be starting any brand new armies anymore and just updating the ones I have. I'm going to be putting my new stuff into things like HC and FoW.

Rob your starting Flames of War? If your interested in WW2 let me know, I have several sets already that are better historical choices other than that. FoW is fine if you are looking for a "game" that uses WW2 as a model base. Otherwise I have some that are better choices. Unfortunatly one is Kampfgruppe Normanday by WHH, so that is a non starter. But there are others and more coming soon.

I know there are better systems out there but I picked up the starter box this last weekend when at Midwest Rampage and a lot of people in the wfb group I'm with do play the game.

Okay then. It is a fun game, at times, depending on the group you are playing with. I just grew tired of it and started searching. Let me know if you want to try something different. Im actually waiting for Bolt Action to release their stuff later this year. Im now working on Warwick Kincade's 54mm skirmish game right now.
