We have had lots of rumors lately discussing the return of Epic, and the real question that it comes down to, "Would you buy into it?"

Its been a number of years since Epic was last updated or even supported by Games Workshop. There are a lot of us older hobbyists out there that may even have epic models and armies that are ready to go for new rules, but this alone won't help a game get support, much less re-released in any form.

In order for a game to gain some traction, it must sell. New armies must be wanted by the community, and if there just isn't enough out there, a small one time limited release is what we will get. It really comes down to sales of what the community wants and will purchase, not a vocal minority already with armies that wont buy the new models.

The economics of releasing these games is a reality check that needs to be checked off. So what do you think? Should Epic return?

Here is a compilation of the latest rumors regarding the return of Epic and specialist games.
Please remember that these are a compilation of rumors.
