Hey guys!

 

Have just picked up the latest copy of the UK edition of White Dwarf, and there is a good suggestion that FFG might actually be there.

 

On the Games day map there is a long dection called 'Licensed partners', and within the text contained on the same page there is a passage which mentions many of their licensed partners will be there to display their boardgames (and pc games) based on the Warhammer and 40K universes.

Ok so its not conrete evidence, but certainly a hint potentially.

Either way, I'm packing enough money for 3 bases sets just in case

Yeah AFAIK no other company has teh RIGHTS to make board games on warhammer, other than FFG (the video game's could be many though, like Mythic / Warhammer MMO, which if you haven't tried yet, or had someone explain it to you in person while they play it, you should!)

I am wondering if GW will also allow WI in their stores.

Would be a good place to find some people to play.

Ah, thats interesting to know Vermillian thanks!

 

So it looks almost a cert that FFG will be there! result!

 

(edit: and yeah love the mmo, just a shame the population has taken such a sharp nose dive since being released)

All MMOs have population well-being in their beginnings. Then they all take a bit of a dive. It is only a few that survive, with frequent content updates, throughout a few years. (IIRC from my limited MMO experiences).

topic derail, success!

(PS BTW population matters not if your servers pop is decent for what you want to do. last I checked there weere/are several servers where there is RvR activity all the time in at least one or more zones, some public quests being done or people willing to do them (sometimes you have to be the initiator, leader, you know?) in pretty much every other chapter, and scenarios popping somewhat regularly)

GW have never allowed other licenced games to be played in store so I doubt WI will be an exception unfortunately. This even applied when the games were made by Sabertooth, which was actually owned by GW.

At the same time it depends on your relationship with your local GW store manager.

I know for a fact that my stores manager wouldn't mind, as I have been a loyal customer for years and have brought thousands of pounds of product in that time.

The fact that I will buy more and encourage people to shop there would be the reason he won't have a problem with it.....

 

but as ChaosChild suggests, this may not be the case with your local store, and it certainly wont be company policy.

 I was a GW manager for 10 years and as much as I would have loved the likes of WarCry of Invasion to be played in my store it would never happen for a number of reasons. GW has a massive downer on anything that isn't toy soldiers being played in the stores, as Rob said, they wouldn't even entertain WarCry or Dark Millennium when it was one of their companies making it!! 

 Returning to topic, as far as I know, and this will need a bit of confirming, Esdevium will be demoing some of the FFG games at Games Day. This still needs to be confirmed, it is in no way 100% certain that it is happening or what will be there game wise, but that have been the mutterings so far.

Ooooh see now your just teasing me!

I couldn't agree more with the comments about playing in GW stores - even after several years working there when the Manager and several other staff members played WarCry we only ever managed to play once we could lock the doors.

I must admit that I had assumed the board game reference in WD would be Space Hulk...

Just my €0.02.

Might actually think about picking up a ticket (or would be happy to work it as we got a great reception there in the old days with Sabertooth games) if I can play some cards as well.

 FFG will be demoing Warhammer Invasion at Games Day, no word as to wether it will be on sale or not, I'd go with not.

If it is on sale dude I will buy 4 or 5 (if allowed and give you guys it at cost. Obviously it would have to be done on trust via paypal, but I'm prepared to do that if you guys are prepared to pay it.

Consider it done if on sale and if I'm allowed to buy that many. I have a sneaky feeling they may have quantity restrictions. I'll do it through ebay too, to give you some comeback in case anything goes wrong

Just so long as you're behind me in the queue, so that you don't buy them out before I can get mine 

Assuming it's on sale at all that is, which doesn't sound likely.

Lol, fairy snuff. And even if they are onsale I can see it being pretty limited. 3 boxes would practically make my day mind you.
