Dear Community!

Aperrantly GW decided to remove the Warhammer Fantasy tab from thier official book selling store the Black library.

Currently you can still get acces to the all the novels they have published, but some Warhammer players think this is the sign of the last destruction. Maybe we are wrong, we dont like to find out. So, if anyone intended to buy any Warhammer ebooks do now while you still can. The Bretonnian and Tomb Kings sets where pulled overnight to OOP section, without any warning, and now there is a chance that 30 years of lore will be unaccesable forever. Visit this site and grab yourself a copy:

Kind Regards
herjan1987

P.S.: This might proove wrong, but due to the fact that Games Workshop has done so many crazythings in the past this wouldnt be unatural of them.

    I agree it does seem to bode as to something happening to the warhammer lore, what is hard to say (complete death, retcon or AoS was all a dream) seem far too sane for GW so sit back get some popcorn and try not to rage to much.

    I can understand why some might think that's what they're doing, but at the same time it doesn't really make much sense. Models have production costs and distribution costs and so on, and those factors become hard to justify when they don't sell, whereas with e-books all they have to do is keep the website running and watch as the money comes in.

    Obviously nobody outside of GW management really knows what this is about, least of all myself, but if I would hazard a guess they're just making an effort to streamline the old and the new, since the past year GW has made a pretty solid effort at improving customer relations, I can't see how deleting a bunch of books helps them in any way.

    Unexpected question:
    Was "Blood Bowl" IP affected by "Age of sigmar"?

    No. Blood Bowl remains in the alternative Old World according to a person who was on the Forge World open day. Also they stated that rules will not change, atleast the not broken ones.

    Good. Right now I find Blood Bowl's alternative version of Old World more attractive, than AoS world.

    Seems kinda **** to let a huge game publisher make a succesful game on their franchise and then close off their book section at the hight of its succes. lol.

    They're probably drunk as always.

    Games Workshop dont know what thier are doing with the Warhammer Fantasy IP ( game + minis + books alike ). They dont know what they had missed out.

    I can't find the link at the moment, but just the other week they did a "Back by popular demand" email blast which included Time of Legend books such as the Rise of Nagash series.

    But to be fair Black Library has been slowly moving away from WHFB material for awhile and such things have would be on a planned schedule.

    After they ruined WHFB with the 40k clone AoS I've given up supporting them...I haven't bought a mini or book for ages now. Luckily there are multiple video games keeping the dream alive. I just hope we don't end up seeing any AoS video games anytime soon and WHFB remains the focus for future titles.

    All of the War of the Vengeance series is great. Master of Dragons is Tragic and curse of the Phoenix is one of the best Warhammer books ever, great characters great action (can you Dragons Vs Airship fleet?) all in all a great series of books.

    Finished Sigmar's Time of Legends series to introduce me to Warhammer and now working my way through Gotrek and Felix. They're fun reads but the pacing is a little off, like they always feel a little anticlimactic or like the book ending came out of nowhere. Anyways, just started Vampireslayer and trying to figure out what the point of Ulrika's character was.
