This is baseless, but they might've changed Slaanesh's symbol so that it can't be misconstrued as implying that gender/sex noncomformity is "chaos"/"heresy"/"evil" (and perhaps to distance reduce the focus on Slaanesh as a sexual god)?

Maybe if you're a blind retard.

You got crab clawed androgynous hags, which are not gaudy snakemen with swords, bloated sacks of shit nor... what ever horrors try to be.

You got a big bull/what ever that thing is headed thing with crab claws, a big winged dog headed thing with ax and whip, a bird and a big sack of shit.

You got chimera type things with crab claws, scorpion tails, claws and hooves, lizard dogs, sacks of shit, manta rays.

You got crab clawed androgynous hags on some sort of snake ostriches, snakemen with swords on mechanical bulls, sacks of shits flying on big bugs, and some sort of sea cucumbers spewing fire.

It wasn't the right that got GTAV pulled from Target in Australia because of "violence against sex workers in-game". It's not the right that is campaigning for porn to be banned because it's degrading against women.

Look, I'm as left-wing as they come, but the modern left has a major puritan element in it. There's a big divide between sex-positive and sex-negative feminists, and the later are leading the narrative on sex being harmful towards women.

It's true that the right is against a lot of that stuff too, except there's been a bigger shift in the right (talking America at least) towards holding freedom of speech as sacrosanct. Furthermore outside of publications like Fox News, the extreme right is simply ignored (indeed, all it takes is to call them right-wingers and their points are silenced). Meanwhile the extreme-left get plenty of face time in major media outlets where their views are presented in a positive light.

If this is their plan, it's going to crash and burn. Kids don't play these kinds of games anymore, it's all about videogames or integration with videogames. It's why Skylanders and amiibo are such a hit, because they do things in videogames.

GW needs to understand their market isn't children, never was. It's grognards and fans, and their product is a niche one.

If they really want money, make a videogame studio and work their IPs through that. Toy men aren't going to cut it for children.

They have the basic idea right of simplifying the rules and trying to get more people into playing it

Unfortunately the rules still have most of the underlying flaws (and a shitload of new AoS only flaws) and they're trying to get an entirely different audience to play instead of more from their existing audience

Lower the cost and actually update all your armies and more people would play
At this point they must be losing a significant number of people given the rise of other, similar, wargames

I just mentioned the per force cost thing cos it seems like every time people are discussing cheap games infinity, warmachine or xwing are frequently brought up as examples of cheap games despite them having very high per mini costs.

>> No.41106319

>>41106265
Yeah but the difference with WMH isn't just the force cost it's also the individual power each box you buy has in the game

With GW games a single troop is sometimes little more than padding whereas in WMH the game's tuned so each unit is decent enough to make a notable impact
For a player that's arguably more important than the superior quality of GW's models for the same cost

Hopefully AoS addresses this if they are going for the skirmish format

>> No.41106437

>>41106319
Depends on the game, army and unit. I mean, in a WW2 mini game a German SS panzer grenadier unit with two machine guns and panzefausts plays very differently from a soviet platoon of unwashed masses with rifles. But when you got mass, losing a few dozen dudes is not a problem.

In a small scale skirmish game every model has a role and losing one lessens the army's function.

>> No.41106554

What is kinda curious to me is why they didn't try to actively gouge interest. Like doing a survey via email to their registered customers or something.
I mean, axing the biggest Fantasy wargame on the market without so much as a warning seems like a rash decision and I'm pretty sure they didn't do themselves a favor.
Everybody looking to get into a game like AoS is likely gonna compare it to other games, of which there are many more these days and many of them more established and one might argue better.

That's what gets me, fantasy works, mudhammer fans loved it. The level of writing that led to the end of fantasy is five year old tier. I'm also shocked that as you say, there was no probing at all.

Just out of fucking no where a total garbage system, and now there rearranging the disfigured remains of fantasy? Christ.

I mean every other company would be ecstatic to have the fandom of WHFB. For GW that was not enough, okay, but they basically killed that stream of revenue off entirely, instead of just changing the system. So whether or not AoS will do bigger is a huge gamble.

Even introducing Aos as it is, while keeping WHFB around for a while to see what happens would have made more sense. AoS could have made it easier for people to start building a WHFB army even.
I just don't see the any logic behind that decision at all.

I hope it does.

But in some epic battle that brings back the eldar empire plus friends.

I want all dat eldar pantheon to rise right our of her gored belly in the burning ruins of her palace left by the reborn efforts of the legion of Avatars of Khaine, unleashed right after the god Yneed (can't spell it) is born and storms the palace like an spectre god to fight Slaanesh in a duel in the center of the throne room before winning.

And the end result could be still a fractured but rearisen eldar faction going all out on nation building and recovering their crone world goodies as their souls now go back to the pantheon, but whispers of Slaanesh still tingle in their minds as a god waiting to be remade, but also tempered by their regret of their lost and sense of imminent anhilation via Yneed.

But then again with the way GW has been "giving attention" to things recently I don't think there is any point and we can kiss any hope we had of things improving good bye.

didn't Malekith end as one of the good guys following End Times? Becoming Phoenix King and stuff?

Also, that spider god thing somebody posted above was for a goblin unit it looked like, which fits, since goblins in fantasy have always loved them some spiders.

Wouldn't that mean the spider god being chaos makes the goblins chaos now?
