    I think the price is just fine for a game of this magnitude.

    Well, if this is a war, then GW has already lost. They axed Warhammer Fantasy Battles and replaced it with Age of Sigmar, which is a silly excuse for a game.
    Everybody in my gaming club quit WFB. All my friends. These are serious gamers, who will invest in something new as their old WFB-armies gather dust.
    I sincerely hope that FFG will not forget Battlelore! It is such an elegant game. I hope there will be new expansions. Battlelore and RWMG do not exclude each other.

    The core set is a hoot and a blast. You will have tons of fun with it. It has enough replayability to be played for a long time.
     
    The expansions will spice things up of course, but the core game is sound as it is.

    P
    Then you really need elves! They would be your perfect foe. Is there anything more satisfying for a dwarf than seeing a frolicking elf being beat into the dirt? I guess not. After all, squashing orcs with your axe is easy and gets boring after a while. And always fighting in those damp tunnels. Grant yourself some fresh air, hit an elf out of a tree.
    Elves->Dwarfs->Orcs, that would be my preferred release schedule. I wonder if we will see any of it.

    I have used many different paints but surprisingly never Vallejo. I've found that my favorite to use is Citadel hands down. I love everything about it really. That said, I couldn't get out to my local GW today so I stopped by Hobby Lobby and saw that they had Vallejo so I decided to pick some up so I'll let you know what I think of it comparatively...If anyone cares

    Warhammer's kinda retarded so I don't mind them not using it.  There's nothing meaningful or interesting about it other than dumb memes made by british people who copied **** while missing the point.

    seriously though, Star Wars isn't for everyone. Sometimes FFG has to make something that isn't SW.

    Yes there are many different paint companies out there, which ones are the best for you you must try, maybe you look for a good price or you take paints your local store sells or colours you can work with well or most importantly those which taste best when you lick your brush
    You can of course also use paints from more than one company, I remember Privateer Press's painting tutorials used Citadel and Vallejo paints before they created their own paints.
     
    EDIT: Sorry forgot about your colour blindness, but you should still chosse the paint you are comfortable to paint with, these days you can find many conversion charts like this one:

    i can't say though how up to date it is and the colours will of course never match 100% but it's nevertheless quite useful.

    Phil_Fantus reacted to Icelom in GW and FFG end partnership like expected...   
    I am no expert, but my guess is Games workshop does not want to do business with there direct competition in the war minis market... its probably a stupid move, having your IP in lots of locations is good shutting down several means for people to get into there universe sounds like a very childish and stupid knee jerk reaction.
     
    Now by contrast, maybe FFG terminated the agreement for the same reasons to stop giving exposure to there competition. However it seems very sudden on the ffg end with a complete termination of active lines.

    GW's reputation towards their gaming community is atrocious as is their attitude towards gamers something that trickles down all the way to their shop clerks.  I recall walking into a Games workshop store one time, I asked where their brushes were and the store clerk asked "Oh what game are you painting for".  Not thinking about it I answered honestly, War Machines.  The guy looked at me and I kid you not told me "Citadel brushes are for GW games like Warhammer, maybe you can get some brushes online for War Machines".    The look he gave me was like "ok you can leave now".
     
    That really sums up the GW as a company for me.
     
    FFG breaking from them while disruptive will end up being one of the wisest decisions they ever made.

    That's just one possibility really. I'm not particularly concerned about their reasons. I'm just very accustomed to GW doing stupid, myopic things.
     
    To me, this comes as no surprise. Truth be told, I was surprised FFG had got them to the bargaining table in the first place. That GW would again turtle up was, in my experience, only a matter of time.

    Maybe, but this was hardly an isolated incident.  Every single time I have ever walked into a Games Workshop store I felt like I was on a used car lot.  They are always in your face with the hard sell trying to sell you any bull they can talk you into.  You quite literally cannot walk into a Gamesworshop anywhere on planet earth where the clerks will leave you alone and let you browse in peace.
     
    GamesWorkshop is the infomercial company of the gaming world, everything they do is obnoxious.   If they weren't so annoying I would probably be playing one of their games but I hate going into their stores so much that I just rather play something else then to deal with it.

    This game is awesome, but I will say I wish they released an Elf faction, an Orc faction, and at least a Dwarf ally pack. 
     
    It's not a matter of playability, but players often get stuck on a particular faction etiher for the aesthetics, the fluff, or the gameplay.  The Daqan don't really do it for me, they're OK, but I like to play the "good guys" or at least not blatantly evil guys, and having another option would be beyond great. 
     
    I'm hoping they release stuff for Battlelore alongside stuff for the new miniature game.

    You have that backwards. Runewars is FFGs answer to the license ending. 
     
    To the OP, the other LCGs don't have licenses that will be ending anytime soon and a few of them won't end ever really since FFG owns the Android and L5R settings and Cthulhu stuff is mostly public domain now.

    I think it's important to see the Conquest LCG ending as separate to an issue with the LCG format. The license partnership ended (no doubt due to the release of RuneWars by FFG being seen as a direct competitor to the Warhammer minis game), and that's why Conquest is ending, not because of an inherent issue with the LCG format. Many LCGs are still going strong, and have been for a good period of time.

    Seriously, it's so ridiculous to only give us 3 factions of the four major ones in the Runebound universe for Battlelore. The game sells well, is widely acclaimed as the best lite wargame now that '44 is dead, and is incomplete. Come on, FFG, you can do it!
