Battlefleet gothic
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:04:57 PM »
Is anyone else bummed that Battlefleet Gothic is gone?  I was actually all set to get a fleet along with a friend of mine about a year ago, now I'm wishing I had jumped on it, the stuff is crazy expensive on Ebay for peoples poorly painted ships that look like more work than they're worth.  Really just a shame, no chance any of you guys know of a magical place on the net that still carries the stuff eh?

I feel your pain.  I bought a bunch of Gothic stuff when I saw that GW started taking away all of the specialist stuff.  I have two full fleets (Necrons and Space Marines), but I'm fing the only place to look is ebay/amazon/any other secondhand site :(

I am hoping it makes a come back. With X-Wing and Firestorm Armada doing so well, I'm sure GW will see a flash of dollars in their eyes and bring it back.

However, it needs new models, and updated rules... So doubt we will see it any time soon.

I really want to paint an imperial fleet, my buddy was gonna do a chaos one, we had planned to work them into a campaign.  I've tried out Firestorm armada and i like the ships, but the rules just felt a little awkward...

totally agree.  I was just picking up a few ships to go with my space marines and imperial guard when they cancelled the line.  It'd be great if they brought back the line but that would have to be years down the line.  In the mean time... ebay.. sigh...

Dear Games Workshop,

Please bring back Battlefleet Gothic. I realise that producing models for Specialist armies takes production away from the main lines and the take up might be relatively limited. Thus I have the following suggestions to keep costs down:

  • Buy one of the many small company to produce models at the moment to produce this and maybe other specialist games.
  • License it out to one of the many companies that are currently producing outstanding models and games. Such as, I don't know Fantasy Flight Games. Even though you don't want other companies producing your models normally it's not like they can be used in your other games.

The success of things like Firestorm Armada and X-wing prove the concept can work, but obviously it might have been better before there were so many games in that genre.

I agree whole heartedly with the licensing it out. Unless they have their own plans.... but they shouldn't wait damnit! Having an Iron Hands Fleet would go well with my army, and add a lot of flavour to Campaigns/

yeah i wish they'd license it out to fantasy flight, I mean it wouldn't be totally unheard of for them...  If I recall correctly Fantasy flight is doing relic, talisman, horus heresy, dark heresy, space marine, and rogue trader, so its not like they don't already work with GW's intellectual property.

Something tells me that with the rise of X-Wing, it may come back as a competitor. GW will always try to make money wherever possible and personally, I'm ready to give them that money!

Me too,  and it is plausible since attack wig is also rising up. Let's just hope that with all the big kits coming out for x-wing GW will take an interest.
Feel the rush of the wind against your skin and hear her keening cry in your ears. Listen to her call well, for are we not the Wild Riders, the children of the storm?
