Warhammer Store News, and Updates from Lille



Stores are changing over to the new Warhammer name now in several places in the world. We have heard from stores in Germany, and now Australia and more in the UK. Dont be surprised if your local store changes the next time you visit. 

Also a correct out of GW Lille. Or you could say it was more of a follow up, saying that they do not know of any new Fantasy release.

Lot's of UK GW Stores finally undergoing the name change to 'Warhammer'now. All new stores are opening as 'Warhammer' as well.
looks like some of the GW stores in Australia have been re-branded "Warhammer" stores! I have posted some photos on my facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/BlogForTheBloodGod



Update from this specific GW store facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/GWLille

"Hello everyone,
In order to make silent all crazy rumors appeared on forums, the teaser that has been removed from our Facebook page just announced our desire to organise a WFB tournament from the Throne of Skull type, based upon the rules of Storm of Magic, hence the reference to the changes in the rules... and nothing more. (Thanks to our English speaking friends, who find the teaser rocks, it will soon come back on the event page).
In prevision of further questions, no, organising a tournament does not mean we know the release date of the next WFB edition, nor its content.
...
We love and respect equally the three universes we propose, et are waiting impatiently for future releases, just like you. Thank you to respect ou work and commitment rather than relaying wrong informations."

    1. Oh nooo!!!
      No more 40k... Its being phased out.
      I suspected this allready due to the lack of SM releases.

    2. I've spent countless hours and dollars on my beloved 40k armies only for evil GW to invalidate all of that in one fell swoop. Screw GW!

      I'm going to go play Infinity or Warmahordes now!

    3. Seb, why are you even here? It's obvious that you don't own any GW products because your strictly "No Fun Allowed"

  2. Isnt the generic term "Warhammer" (compared to the phrase "Warhammer Fantasy Battle" or "Warhammer 40,000" hard to copyright? Or is it, because it is one word instead of the usual two words the generic term is supposed to be?

    1. I think it has more to do with the people seeing Games Workshop, coming in and asking if they have CoD Black Ops or any other video game or Monoploy or Cluedo, Warhammer store says it sells Warhammer stuff.

    2. Seems like it would be a lot more difficult to copyright/trademark. I also think that it's a great name for a game, but a horrible name for a store, unless you actually call it "the Warhammer Store". In a year I probably won't think twice about it though. Granted, that's mostly because I'm not likely to ever go into one, with the closest one being a 7-hour drive away.

    3. Quiet we don't want your sanity here! Yes they are squatting all 40k armies!!! Lololol

    4. @Paul Harris

      You know, the reason I started playing 40K is exactlythat. I walked into a GW looking for a board game.

      Seems it would earn them more customers than they'd lose over it. :p

    5. "the warhammer store" is what people who arent currently into the hobby generally call gw stores, which is probably what irks me about the name, as ive always associated the term with people who don't know what its about.

      Delete
    6. Wouldn't it be funny now instead of people going in and asking for video or board games you have the few elite who collect actual warhammers and swords and stuff like that.

    7. funnily enough my local gw is right round the corner from a store that exclusively sells antique weapons and armour

    8. As Adam said Games workshop is easily mistaken for carrying computer games and the likes and is commonly referred to by new and older customers as "The warhammer store" so GW has decided to open up all new stores as "Warhammer" and when any old stores get refurbished they will also become "Warhammer" stores.

    9. Again, marketing fail.

      I have seen people come in and go - oh, these kind of games - hey, these are cool...what is this about.

      That won't happen with the name "warhammer" which only means anything to an already shrinking niche market.

      With their IP and models - they could be a billion dollar company - if they understood what they sell and who they can sell it too. I say that as business executive who helps billion dollar companies get that way..

    10. Evidently you know more then the people there currently so I'd suggest you apply to that job! With all that marketing research you must of done to come to that conclusion.

      Delete
    11. Is there any reason to copyright the name of your store? So long as your products are copyrighted that should be sufficient.

      Delete
    12. @Unahim its not for Trade marking as Games workshop was already Trade marked . The name change is literally because the store gets referred to by most people as the Warhammer store, so they may as well make themselves Identifiable.

    13. evidently if he knows what he is talking about and does make corporations that kinda money then if i were GW i'd sit straight and pay attention. but it is words on the internet which prove nothing like that angry biker guy who comments here on occasion...no one either A. cares if it is true or B. since it is words, no one will believe it is true.

      Delete
    14. and not to mention even if they listened they'd choose the "greed" option. example short term profit over long term viability.

      Delete
    15. I liked GW a bit more before they got their marketing team, back when they had sales on at Christmas, plastic kits were sold by weight, and you had that short hand pricing system on blister packs.

  3. Regarding the Facebook message, I'd say I told you so... But I just did.

    1. doesn't work like that. you have to have told before not after the fact otherwise you told the wind nothing as everyone wasn't told by you as they found out elsewhere.

      Delete
    2. ???

      That made no sense.

      I was referring to the fact that the first time the rumour came up I was the first person to post a comment saying that it wasn't a valid rumour because individual GW stores wouldn't post details about upcoming products and that they aren't told anything in advance.

      Delete
    3. if you say in the same comment "you told someone so" at the same time as others know the thing your trying to prove as you saying and thus "told us so"....since you "told us so" after the fact it is moot/invalid.

      did it compute this time?

      Delete
    4. you could of been referring to anything as you excluded the fact of "how you told us so" we get so many rumors and some are conflicting do you honestly expect us to remember you "telling us so" of course not...don't be so daft....it doesn't suit you.

      Delete
    5. AND.....you didn't tell us shit. sorry but i read more sites than this....you WEREN'T the one who told me....so in a way my first comment stands. as we know Natka often gets material which is a day or so late compared to other sites (or atleast ones i visit). you told some people whom already knew which you are trying to prove you said. i am not doubting you saying that, i do doubt others didn't know prior to your outburst... "i told you so"....no you didn't.... LOL

    6. Hey Dark Apostle, quite making a big deal out of a simple comment, who cares who told what, you don't like what he said, ignore it, he wasn't attacking anyone so don't attack him.

      Delete
    7. And yes I saw the typo, it's two in the morning.

      Delete
    8. Yeah geez man, calm down!

      All I was saying is that on the previous post about the GW Lillie Facebook page message about 9th edition, I stated in the comments that it was not reliable and there where some people who disputed what I was saying. You can go and look for yourself, I was literally the first person to comment on that post.

      Therefore I was saying "I told you so" to those that disputed me (not the whole freakin Internet) and thus my comment is valid but only to those who where present before.

      I'm sorry it has impacted your life in such a big way.
