Here’s the teaser for the upcoming Horus Heresy book (and no doubt miniatures)… it doesn’t have much in it.
Prepare for disappointment!
it’s a GW teaser trailer, what did you expect?
Er its a teaser, so not going to really be much info
Going to be sooo cool, for so many reasons I just hope they are too narrow in their focus.
Games Workshop don’t make beer commercials. But if they did they would be the worst adverts in the world.
Yes, but would you really want to see a bunch of fat dudes wrestling in a pool over some plastic models chibi?
I might, you don’t know what my little peccadilloes may be?
Peccadillo. What a great name for a Carnevale character!! I bagsy it and claim all rights to the use of the name. It will be available for use under license. One bag of toffees and a sherbet dip (subject to change at my discretion)
The only thing GW trailers have that this one didn’t was a galaxy back drop.
To be fair, most of their teasers reveal very little. Its not disappointing because its the Horus Heresy which will be awesome!
Was that it? What a pile of shite – my son could do better than that & he’s 4
Well let’s be honest, it isn’t so much a video, as more of a Powerpoint presentation. Thank goodness they ditched the SMs drawn with shapes.
OK now I am freaked out, this is getting spooky. You know how what you have just looked at on line starts appearing in advertising banners?
Well hotmail has just popped up with: Ebay, GRAB A BARGAIN! Warhammer Eldar, Wraithseer Forge. 10 Carlsberg bar-aprons. small size.
Given the post above this is getting uncomfortably specific They got the size wrong,
This how they spend our cash to buy their stuff!?
SHUT UP AND GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY!
So… will you be giving whatever you bought back too?
Lets just hope it lives up to our imaginations
sweet…. random stuff… ‘we will have something to feast our eyes on, want, but find too expensive, so we can compain again’…. soon !!! I love
Pretty cool trailer, better than the GW ones that basically show some words and then not a word on what it is about.
this actually works a teaser by telling you what they are releasing and when.
… Are you being serious? If so, then good luck to you.
Hey GW / FW, here’s your target audience; they’ll blindly accept any drivel you push out. Be careful mind, there isn’t too many of these persons around.
I think so
I think everyone is taking this out of context. So what if it’s a minute thirty seconds, has slow text, has a low fire place soundtrack and the same fire sequence used in other videos….
Damn it give me my minute thirty seconds back!
Wait, what’s this thread about? The crappy teaser or the Forgeworld release?
The clue is in the title.
Given that I no longer play 40k except for a very occasional game, and I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the background, even I can see how big and exciting the news of a Horus Heresy release is!
A sexy poster based on one of the book covers would have been better imho. I don’t see the need for a video if images are left out with the exception of some flames.
I am glad they didn’t go overboard with faux pee-ing themselves with excitement but especially given the news that Horus is a comin’ they could have put in more effort.
This could have been so much better. If I was GW I would have spent some of that mighty profit they earn on some decent artists and do a motion comic…
Basically for this teaser you’d have a voice over, someone gravely and old, a scribe perhaps from the Imperial Church. You’d see animated versions of the book art work (with no music, just the sound of gun fire and roars of triumph) showing the resplendent way in which the Imperium has conquered the stars and then towards the end fade in an image of the fallen Emperor atop the Golden Throne. Then, just at the end flash an image of Horus with a grimacing smile leering at you.
Would have been a lot more entertaining.
That trailer was s***. Even by teaser standards.
tbf from the sounds of things it is a bad but effective trailer, people are watching it and moaning about it because its that bad. GW don’t need to do a good trailer to get people aware of their new release’s because the bad ones are cheaper and probably get there stuff a similar amount of publicity, even if its mainly people moaning
Not sure why you believe this to be a disappointing trailer, its a teaser so isn’t supposed to contain any real info or pics, its just to peak your interest.
Its actually very exciting and there’s been a massive buzz about it due to the fact it means FW are going to be producing Horus Heresy era miniatures and rules with even the possibility of Primarchs for Apocalypse, sounds pretty interesting to me.
You are right. We ought not be disappointed. Disappointment means something has failed to reach a certain level of expectation. Since we have become accustomed to GW teasers and trailers being crap, it should come as no surprise that this one is crap too.
WHY are GW not putting badass adverts on TV anymore?
Remember the awesome battlemasters advert? I can’t find the UK advert but look how badass the french advert is!? THERE’S EXPLOSIONS as well!
Becuae MB Games (Hasbro) understood marketing..
I think MB Games put the money up for that. same as this one. Because MB Games (Hasbro) understood marketing..
