PostSubject: Fantasy Flight/Forgeworld Mordheim?   Sun 11 Aug 2013 - 23:15

Was talking with a couple of guys at my LGS earlier today, and one of them told me that GW is shifting a lot of their Specialist Games to FF or FW for future use. He seemed to think that this might lead to a re-imagining of Mordheim with Forge World handling the sculpting of new Mordheim minis. Has anyone else heard about this? I know rumors fly around all the time, so I'm not really sure what to think.

I have recently heard (about a month ago, Feb 2014) from a friend of mine that he thinks that FFG is going to re-imagine Mordheim. Necromunda as well is a possibility.

I'm with the captain on this.

Unless FFG re-imagine Mordheim and Necromunda as either card games, board games (like Relic and Talisman) or rpg books. GW will not let them make a miniature game using the warhammer (40k) IP, ever.

Maybe they got it confused with the upcoming computer game?

I have no actual proof, only that as a former GW freelancer he thought that FFG may be doing a remake of Mordheim and Necromunda.

I agree that GW would probably not allow its IP to be used for a miniature game. However what if FFG made a hybrid board / mini game like Gears of War perhaps?

The computer game will hopefully be fun.

To add some fuel to this fire, I went on the GW website with my mobile phone and tablet last week and I noticed that the specialist games was no longer on their site. I wander if this is just their mobile site. If not, the redoing of the specialist games might be true.

I think it would be awesome if Forge World took over Mordheim and Necromunda. They would make new no-metal models and new sorce books. And at least in my GW stores, I can get the mail orders for FW at my store and make the payment in the store. Here's hoping.

Specialist games disappeared during the relaunch of the GW site. My guess is that it was just a routine clean up to avoid having loose ends. The specialist part of the GW site had been empty for months.

At the moment I just can't see Forge World taking any interest in Specialist games. They just do not have the resources. The Horus Heresy is taking up all their time.

I would, of course, be thrilled to get some new Mordheim and Necromunda miniatures but as already stated elsewhere I am skeptical that the current rules team could do Mordheim justices. Not to mention other beloved games like Inquisitor.

Forge World woun't even continue their support of Warhammer Forge so I think it's unlikely they will take over MH and Nec. And the SG not being on the website can just mean it's truly gone. On the other hand I would never have imagined that anything would ever happen with the MH-IP again and now we have a pc-game in the making, so...
