  1. Oh and I am going to this one! I sure hope they preview some fascinating new stuff.

  2. It would be epic if GW went back to the glory days of Gamesday.

    But from what I read of this teeny-tiny writing that I have on my smartphone, I don't see anything that implies that we are getting advanced viewings of upcoming minis, art, books and the like. Just the usual greens, Master minis etc for product that have already been released.

    *shrug* maybe I missed the point or something...

    I was seriously going to give Gamesday another chance, just so that I can experience the 'magic' of that, once glorious, event. Alas, I decided no in the end when GW made it twice as small for the same ticket price and no sneak peaks of future releases.

    The last time GW did that was with the Dark Eldar back in 2010, I believe (man, was that awesome).

    As much as I really, really, really want Gamesday back to what it was, I'll be taking a whole barrel of salt on this one.

    1. It says, "conceptual work," in one place, and "actual works in progress!" in another. I'd suggest that means previews.

  3. "Sneak peeks" would mean that people would decrease buying the old kits because they are waiting for new ones to arrive. Also, less impulse buying if you can prepare beforehand.

    I bet all concept art etc. is of old releases. The same with the "actual work in progress" - yeah, actual concept models, three-ups and whatnot of already released models.

    1. I don't know about you but I rather enjoy looking at concept art for things. Especially for stuff like this where the process is very secretive.

      Shame they don't have these events on the West Coast :/

    2. Yes, I would enjoy looking at new things. That's why I frequent this blog. Instead, my comment was meant to illustrate what GW most likely thinks about looking things before they are released.

  5. Assume it won't be anything new. Then it will be a nice surprise if it isn't.

  6. Yay, maybe they can see that old 'prototype eldar jetbike' that was never released (and presumably won't be) again.

    After all, GW does like to dangle carrots...

  7. How to gain the hype, show stuff before the INTERNET shows it before!

  8. Just copying and pasting from warseer. Might be interested.






    - xv8 are indeed troops, but must be taken in groups of three
    - preferred enemy (orks) in cc only
    - must have bonding knives if able
    - far sights command team, replacing his usual bodyguard. All are named characters and range across crisis, braodside and riptide suits
    - cant include shadow sun and aun'va
    - you can ally with the standard tau codex
    - ethereals can be taken, representing pre-independence
    - 6 new warlord traits
    - 6 new signatures systems (not really comfortable going in depth on these, but they seem alright)

  9. I wish they would show the new game for September, the last time I went to Games Day in 1996, the Necromunda preview was the best part.

  10. For people sceptical about seeing upcoming or in progress sculpts I'll just say that I was at the UK gamesday last year and forgeworld were showing off plenty like their autocannons and abaddon. It's not unbelievable that it got great feedback and they've extended it to the mainstream sculpts as well this year.
