Games Just Became Less Special

As rumour turns into reality, it appears that the long, slow death of the Specialist Games is being brought to an end by those loveable chaps at the Match Toolshed.

This includes:
  • Necromunda
  • Battlefleet Gothic
  • Epic
  • Mordheim
  • Warmaster
  • Inquisitor

The books and sets have long been out of production, but apparently when the current stocks of miniatures are gone, they will not be replaced.

'Limited' indeed...

Not that they can stop us playing with the games we already have (they can't, can they?) and I for one am still dead keen on a Woffheim/NecroBoot weekend.

But if you were planning on picking up any odds and sods to finish off your collections, you would be wise to do so now (I've already grabbed that House Escher gang I've been planning for decades and never got around to starting - maybe now I will).

And if you feel bad about this turn of events, just remember it was probably your own fault for not buying enough Space Marines.



    Warmaster, we hardly knew ye.

  2. And now Ray Harryhausen is dead. It's all just too depressing.

    1. Medusa, Calibos, Minaton, the Troglodyte, the Giant Walrus, Talos, the Harpies and, of course, the skeletal Children of the Hydra's Teeth.

      There isn't a pixel of CGI that can compete with any of that in a child's imagination.

    2. Of course, they're all TM GW now, so you have to pay royalties just for mentioning them. Except Calibos, you might be okay with that.
