It was a sad start to my day as Romain messaged me to let me know that the Games Workshop’s ‘Eavy Metal Facebook page has gone the way of the company’s other social networking pages.

The Facebook page featured hobby advice, as well as a place where the Eavy Metal painting team could connect with the wide fan Games Workshop fanbase. Its closure has been decried all over the web by gaming fans, and Romain went so far as to call it:
“The last nail in the coffin of proper old style GW painting.”
Of course, what with the Forge World and Black Library pages already having gone down I was surprised that this one hadn’t disappeared earlier. Still, it does mean that one of the last places for fans to interact with the company is now gone.
What are your thoughts on GW shutting down these Facebook pages?
