I need some classic Warhammer art, can /tg/ share? I'm looking for colour art in particular, because 90s GW was all about being as eye-searing as possible.

40k and WHFB equally welcome.

No, I don't think so. The sculpt quality has increased by magnitudes since then, and a lot of the "but they have so much character!" comments largely boil down to nostalgia, IMO. I've got a soft spot for a lot of the old Tyranid models, but they're gawky, awkward, and generally inferior to the new ones.

The sculpt quality has improved dramatically, but current colour trends aren't to my taste. The standard today seems to be gritty and subdued, and while it's fine if you like that, you also need to appreciate what you have here - a popular sci-fi setting full of primary coloured commandos and garish aliens, in a genre otherwise dominated by generic tacticool sci-fi and airsoft nut wank fantasies.

The problem wasn't just that they couldn't do robes in plastic, it was that they couldn't do robes in such a way that the models could be assembled in a sufficient variety of poses. Look at the sleeves on the current metals - they'd all have to hang in a certain way, which would mean the arms could only fit on in a certain way without them looking weird. It was as much a design as a technical issue.

The Cawdor and Redemptionists are pretty cool as well. I remember a series of articles in WD where someone converted a Van Saar gang to look like the Borg, which was pretty awesome.

Anyway, I think that's me out. Enjoy, guys.

It's the same story for all the specialist games - a Battlefleet Gothic reboot would sell fantastically, Epic's ruleset IIRC is considered to be one of the best GW's ever written, and Blood Bowl still has a huge fan-following despite being out of production for years.

Blood bowl is the dumbest one to ignore because it offers a low cost way of introducing people to the hobby.

I think the major problem I see is that the warp is too unstable to support interstellar trade in food so hive worlds would have to be supported by an agri world in the same system which certainly isn't impossible but should be much more rare.

Either that or the way they've been describing warp travel really only impacts some of the areas far away from Terra or close to the Eye of Terror and you can actually rely on big ships arriving daily in most hive worlds.
