Interesting Possibility? You Decide.


The image below was sent in to me this morning, and while I can't verify it, I thought it was at least interesting enough share. The images shows the GW Webstore where there are some different font's used where it says the Horus Heresy, but there is also two Scenery tabs.

So whether its real or not is up to you. GW has in the past accidentally posted up brief workings on the site. Like I said, I can't verify this, and I will leave it here with people that have more expertise than I do on these matters. My first impressions was that it did not look right.

The taskbar shows scenery twice and when i go with the cursor on the first, the textbox shows "horus heresy"

  1. If it wasn't for all the Horus Heresy rumors, I'd have said that the gold-armored figure rallying his troops from that Baneblade was Lord Solar Maccharius.

    1. Gah. He IS Maccharius. I've stayed awake far beyond the point where I can tell the difference between above and below. :D

    1. No you wouldn't. If you hit PrintScreen on your keyboard and paste it into Paint, the cursor will not be visible.

    2. But the rollover Text would?

      Its not doing this anymore anyway. No One els saw it. Its easy to do this in Photoshop.
      So Its really the question what you want to belive.

    3. On OS X, the cursor is not visible in a screan shoot. The roll over text is. I haven't used windows in a long time.

    4. Yep, it's the same in Windows. Don't believe me, seb? Try it yourself.

      That said, it certainly it's an easy thing to do in Photoshop, so don't think I'm a true believer just yet ;)

    5. Even easier would be to just edit the html yourself.

    6. Editing the HTML though would require you to shrink the nav items. Doable in any browser's dev tools but you'd have to readjust all of the padding and size of each one as it's not percentage base. I'm still skeptical because of this but it's interesting to say the least.

    7. To me this looks like the tooltip of the "scenery" button, and if so it's very easy to change to make it look like that.

    1. You can do it faster using browser:

      also I doubt the have deployed applications with such bugs, the software they are using costs a lot so I guess there is no place for children play at this - so it comes to probably low skilled person that made it up : )

  5. Haha. Yeah. I really doubt this one.

  6. As with every "hot" rumor that seems to come down the pipeline, I just ignore and concentrate on the mini's on my table waiting to be painted. When you see it posted for real, then I suggest you put effort into discussing it at length. Until then don't strain your brain on these.

  7. Super duper fake.

    GW's site isn't responsive, which means it wouldn't scale correctly to having another header category. This would push the cutoff line on the right past the cover image, which it didn't.

    In addition: I just tested in Chrome, IE and Firefox -- none use black stock Arial as their hover-over font.

  8. I saw a Horus Heresy section in the left white menu, where you can see armies listed etc, bar about a week ago. It was just Black Library content. I imagine what we're seeing is an artifact from that.

  9. Beyond fake. That looks like a erect penis at a NOW convention. Hogwash and negative points for such a shitty PhotoShop job.

  10. I really doubt that this is photoshopped. It would be too much work when you could just change the HTML of the instance of the page you're on. It's very easy to do.
    Some copy-pasting and some writing and voila:

    1. who's gonna spend 250 smackers on a book that isnt about Horus?!

      Delete
    2. But it's the "Special Not Horus Edition"! I think the question should be; why is it only 250 smackers!?
