This Old World release seems to be the longest release ever. Soon Age of Sigmar will become the old world the way things are going with the length of this release.

If we're still a couple of years off seeing any minis, it is a standardly timed release isn't it? I can't recall exactly, but weren't the Ash Waste Nomad concept sketches previewed at a GW event several years before the minis arrived? I can't remember the exact timing, it was so long ago (which, I hope, supports my point). And some work had already started on that area of Necromunda before then as far as I know.

The difference with the Old World is that they're regularly drip feeding little snippets. Other releases have been more like the Ash Wastes I think -  if you get any well-in-advance inkling of the project's existence at all, you then get very long periods of radio silence from GW until close to the release buildup.

You'd think bringing the old world out in 2023, forty years since the original Warhammer Fantasy battle release, would make sense- but it looks more likely that the big summer release will be 40k 10th edition (sticking with their 3 year rotation) and I can't see them doing two big releases in the same year.

I don't really care about TOW as a game but I'm interested to see what gets rereleased, and any new miniatures- and I know I won't be able to resist a big expensive hardback book full of Old World maps and warhammer lore.

I've had to give them somw wiggle room as they're not designed for r and f, but I've made some movement trays for my Stormbringer Orruks for Dragon Rampant:

Waiter, my soup is giggling.

Has anyone seen Issue #80 of Imperium (Part 2 of 2 Guilliman)?

Last week when I picked up Issue #79 there were plenty spare but this week I couldn't find a single issue in my local or formerly local WHSmith.

Odd, as I'd expect GW supply Hachette with a complete kit and they just split it between two issue.

No luck online either  :(

My local tesco had loads of it but i didn't see part 1 in there the other week.

They said it would be years when they first mentioned that this was a long term project. I believe the pandemic hit between then and now so it's anyone's guess. May have been planned for this year originally - who knows?

Yup, it takes 2-3 years lead time I believe, from concept to production for a lot of GW products. Ash Wastes Nomads concepts were first shared at an event, like you say, I think in 2018 possibly 2019. Though there have also been a twitch stream or two from that era as well talking about plans of where they wanted to take Necromunda with things like Spyrer's etc.

Back then, specialist games were much more haphazard in that they had no dedicated sculptors so were relying upon citadel sculptors having a bit of spare time to sculpt things for them. I think there were also only two people in the specialist games team back in 2017-18. Now they have at least a dozen including their own dedicated sculptors.

I imagine if you want to see what the Old World stuff is going to look like just take a look at Total War: Warhammer 3. GW have been working with the devs on designing the factions including the newer ones like Cathay and Kislev which never really had full ranges. They're making a huge deal with the new upcoming DLC as well of Chaos Dwarves, so I expect to see them make a comeback in miniature form.

I think you're thinking of an earlier era. The new Necromunda came out in 2017, seems unlikely only two people were working on all that stuff  ;)

I'm looking forward to the chaos dwarves coming out. Better preorder the DLC (10% off)
