PostSubject: Dark Eldar and Forgeworld   Fri Jun 22 2018, 12:25

Not much in terms of news, but something that popped up today I thought might be of some interest:
http://natfka.blogspot.com/2018/06/the-future-of-dark-eldar-forgeworld.html

From FAEIT212:

Quote :
"Dark Eldar/ Drukhari miniatures may not be a part of Forgeworld's future (at least in the forseen near future). A reader here on Faeit 212 has sent in his latest correspondence with Forgeworld about the Dark Eldar.


As mostly a Dark Eldar player this is always a little sad. But the possibilities are always still open. Sometimes I think we are getting over-saturated with different armies that have codexes.

This was the response I got after I bought a Tantalus and asked about other models. Their excuse has been they were a pain to make, but this sounds different. Who knows. Will be submitting a what’s on your table soon as well. Cheers "

Good. Their service sucks, their packaging sucks, their plastic sucks even more and their prices are disgusting, hopefully we DO get new models from GW though

As somebody who owns a Tantalus and 2 Reapers, I'm fine with DE never getting more FW items. I ordered all 3 at the same time, and if I had originally ordered just the Tantalus like I had intended, I wouldn't own 2 Reapers today.

The models look nice, and the rules are good, but, the hassle, and expense, of getting Forge World's products to ship to the States means they'll always just be a nice "what if" for me.

To me the "oversaturation of armies" as an excuse is a fat load of horse crap, though. DE have been around for decades, the fact that Forgeworld prefers to make eighty thousand Rhino doors instead of expanding an established faction's line is their fault, no one else's.

From what I can tell atm, FW are doing their best to cover for some fairly major problems. They went super hard into the HH line, and have just discontinued a large swathe of those models with no real explanation. (I have many rather annoyed friends who are now left with half an army in Mk. II armour they can't expand.)
I wouldn't be all that surprised if that email really meant, 'we won't be doing much of anything right now'.

well if the range isn't offered im sure we will see people creating models for 3d printing to fill the gap.

i was on the fence about it before but now i plan on just printing my own.

Maybe FW are stopping due to the fact you can get china cast at less than half the cost of their models.

100% agree.

FW books have always been top notch. FW models, on the other hand, are mostly garbage that anyone could do better.

I have several different FW models, including the tantalus, Reapers, some characters and random bits like doors. I won’t buy another one until they move production to plastic.

Depends on the model. Some are bad. Some are worthy of the gods.
