What's happening in the Spinward Front?

Recommended Posts

Did the war with the Orks and the Severan Dominate come crashing to a halt? Are we friends with the Dominate? Carousing with the Space Fungus? All jesting aside, wth is going on? Shield of Humanity came out months ago, as did Salvaging Solace. We're missing a TON of vehicles, as well as specialties, on top of setting details. Basically, while I live the camaraderie of the board, I'm getting tired of the severe dearth of info in both the Products and Support links. Anyone else heard anything?

Yeah, I have the same question. I think it's "star wars fault": I mean, next Year "The Force Awakens" will be released, and in the last months I see a lot of advertising about Star Wats game made by FFG, so it's possible that they're more concerned with this brand than WH40K.

I dont want to sound negative, but from all 40k rpgs Only war has the less publications and it is the only of the 40k rpgs which is not translated into german.

So I may assume that it is not the best selling product.

Also it was in the FFGs Wintersale where I bought it complete. Without Shield of Humanity (to new) and Hammer of the Emperor (out of stock).

Also Hammer of the Emperor doesn't show up on the Reprint List of FFG.

 

Thats also not the best sign.

 

Deathwatch, Rogue Trader and Black Crusade have some, not all of their products on the reprint list.

And I'm quite surprised that Dark Heresy 2nd is out of stock already.

Yeah not a good sign. I agree.

 

But isn't it up to each Gm/gamer group how the war goes? You wanna have the dominate back into the imperial fold? Make it so.

Is chaos winning? Is it the orks? It's up to you!

 

I mean: Overarching metaplot is for Old World of Darkness, okay? :)

I have no issue with metaplot. Gives me something to work with. As a veteran gamer and gm, I am well familiar with making the game my own and to hell with what the company's adventures offer. Call me greedy, though; I want more cool lego bricks with which to build my Only War 'verse. I could give two hoots about DH2. Yay for rules upgrades and all, but Askellon bores me to tears. As for the Holy Grail license that is Star Wars, yes, go forth and make it work for you FFG. But don't alienate your longtime gamers and customers by making us second class. I am not especially pleased that there are 3 games for one system, each with its own splatbooks. It's business, maybe, to make money where you can, but what happens when the new movie comes out and it doesn't generate the mass fan hysteria that hype seems to be building? What of us that don't really like your version of the SW RPG? I want my 40k back, dammit. People seem to say that the 40k lines are poor sellers, and yet these boards are full of us that want more. I honestly don't think there's a lack of interest in the line. I think there is an over abundant focus on one game. I know that FFG has the talent to create some **** good work. I just want to see that work back here too. It was not that long ago that 40k had a new release every couple months. Not one **** thing except some PDFs, with the exception of DH2, and even that was a messy release as the has to go back to the drawing table given the fan furor on what the book should have and should not have been. Again, maybe I'm just kvetching, but I have no desire to say that it's acceptable that nothing is coming out for us 40k fans. Anyway, just my thoughts on the matter...

I think that Only War is least popular of 40k games. Most of players just go for DW. RT or DH2 for epicness. I see it not only on forums since only war board is least active of 40k boards but even in my city there is only a handful who wants to play only war. Ofc most of them just like fantasy setting like D&D but even in 40k playerbase RT and DH are more popular.

 

I get the feeling that they won't continue OW, kinda sad since i hoped for some more adventures or trilogy campaing like Apostasy Gambit.

Really, the only book I still have a bit of hope for is the third Classes book, introducing the Advanced Specialisations for Commissar, Pysker and Storm Trooper. Without this, OW is simply not finished. I wish that there would also be a Vehicles supplement which includes advice and rules for a tank-based campaign, but I'm not expecting it.
