New GW continues to move from strength to strength. I’m tempted by both the Deepkin and the newly expanded Knight Households.

I sincerely hope that FFG have a lot of new reveals for SW Legion to carry us up to GenCon. While I appreciate there isn’t a TON of new stuff happening right after launch, they’re going to have to pick up the pace to more than a couple of releases per quarter to satiate the appetites of tabletop wargamers for new and shiny things.

I wonder if FFG will have anything to say about their other Star Wars lines (particularly Imperial Assault which had been very quiet since the app came out last year) or if this will be All Legion, All The Time

I too hope that FFG has some new announcements for Legion at Adepticon.
If I’m not mistaken we still need a special forces unit for each side.
Though I have to say that I already have quite some modelles to go through after I checked my order a few minutes ago. 🙂

GW seems to doing a lot of releases lately and despite the bulk, there is no dip in quality.

Necromunda reboot had some great sculpts and recent Daughters of Khaine stuff, Morathi in particular, look amazing.

For many years I managed to avoid buying there overpriced 40K stuff and AoS annoyed me as a fan of the Old World… but I may have to dip my toe in one, or the other, this year.
