Hi all :)

I was just wondering if you guys would support any re-release of any GW Specialist Games & if so, what?

If GW re-booted Necromunda in a similar fashion to Space Hulk would you be interested? What would you expect from such a release? Would you like GW to give more support at their stores, on their site or in White Dwarf for these games?

I've started a campaign to get Warhammer Quest re-made & if you could take a moment to sign the petition by following the link in my signature I'd appreciate it. I hope you can see that such a petition is not just for Quest but for all GW's specialist games.

As a hobbyist I am concerned that if GW make a wholesale move from metal to resin it may harm the future of these games in due time, are you?

I doubt I'd like a new edition of Necromunda. We're in a very comfortable situation with the game right now, the 1st edition rules are complete and you get lots of additional material, we have an excellent Community Edition and fantastic fan based contributions like yakromunda. And finally there is a rather comprehensive miniature range readily available at ebay.
Any new stuff from GW would propably do more bad than good.

Looking at Space Hulk the only thing people are interested in are the Terminator figures. The new rules are actually rather (&#$@!), they killed the whole game concept just to make things easier for the audience. 1st edition is so much better than 3rd. Alone the point that you're restricted to a set of 10 Terminators is (&#$@!) and it's purely a production issue.

I think the only game that might be interesting to see again is Warhammer Quest simply because if all the counter sets, playing cards and floorplans that are hard to find these days. I doubt I'd like the "everything is more dark and sinister than ever" approach that would most likely be delivered with the game.
I also doubt the will redo WQ though as it doesn't realy fit into their present gaming concepts and because it would be difficult to do it a one time release as they did with SH. WQ needs much more games stuff, missions and campaigns than SH.

2 gangs made to the level of those terminators
and some terrain

i would kill for such set for Necro and probably bought two minimum...

As to rules - i am still playing 1st edition.


Ive encountered rumors that other Specialist games are considered for Space Hulk Treatment.
Each one is more difficult because they all have more open nature, but Necromunda is doable.

I never had the opportunity to play WQ, but, man, did I play a lot of HeroQuest when I was a lot younger. I remember in the mid 90s seeing most of the Specialist Games box sets: Space Hulk, WQ, Necromunda, Mordheim, Epic, and co. I wish I had the money then to buy a couple more; the only SG I was given was Necromunda, and I bought Inquisitor.

But, I just can't see GW rereleasing these games at present, because they don't require lots of miniatures to play and they would be expensive to produce. Were GW to remake Necro then I would be interested in buying a copy or two for the miniatures and terrain that would, hopefully, accompany it. Whether the rules would be any good is moot, though. In some ways if another company made the rules and GW made the Minis would be much better.

Good luck with your campaign to get WQ remade.

I think a new book for WQ or any of the other SG games would be nice. I cannot say I am too shy about having a new Ed. of Necromunda (because the new edition doesnt HAVE to be played with the new rules, and the new release will cause more people to play. More people to convert to the old rules if the new ones turn out to be naff...) or any of the other games re-released. But it will never happen. Having fought a losing battle to get SG games let back into the Hobby Center I worked in, I was pretty much told that company policy (as of a couple of years ago at least) as far as SG goes is that they are moth balled.
The only way I see a new release of anything not 40k, WFB or that goddawful War of the Ring game, it will be a one time deal, like Space Hulk has been so far.
Still, the interest and work you put in, into any SG game has earned you some respect here buddy. Good job!
