Farseer Report: Spring 2014


The end is nigh, for Armageddon approaches! But first, let's play some catch-up and see how my last predictions landed.


For those unfamiliar, I've made it a small theme of my writings to occasionally predict the near future of the hobby based on its current ebb and flow. Now mind you, I'm not being fed any specific rumors. These are simply my opinions of what will happen based on general rumor flow, current releases, and common sense.

Forge World Top Ten for October



Forge World once again came out with a list of their top ten sellers.  No surprises really.

Clan Raukaan Supplement Video



The latest GW video is out, this time for the Iron hands Clan Raukaan Supplement.

Finecast: Dead or Alive?





Let the Finecast wars begin!

From Larry on BoLS 

Lots going on behind the scenes at GW - Look for a public announcement in Q2 of 2014 regarding Finecast: -GW Proper gets out of Finecast entirely. -Forgeworld will take control of all remaining Finecast character models. -These character models will be the only non-plastics in GW's line until they are replaced. -These character models will be moved over to plastic (and GW control) in time with plastic clampack resculpts.  -There are internal tests taking place to cast some existing Forgeworld resin kits in a new plastic material. It looks like the resin material is on its way out, and GW is sprinting as fast as it can to replace any Finecast non character kits from their entire range - leaving them as a 100% plastic manufacturer.
If you look at the past few releases, you can see the pattern.


Meanwhile, over at Blood of Kittens:

Well I am sad to report these rumors are fine crap.

First, off GW and public announcements never go together. The idea of Forgeworld taking over Finecast models is completely preposterous, since they use different methods to produce models and while together still different design and produce models separately. This would take a communication between operations, which has never happen before.
Of course, the basis for this rumor relies on the current Finecast-less releases of late. Funny, it appears a few days after the leak of Hive Guard in plastic as well. This is a safe rumor because recent history makes it easy to extrapolate.
Now, it is true Finecast is on the back burner, but it is all based on quality control and production. Finecast has become more direct order than anything, because GW wants to limited returns and control the entire process directly. Also, production being removed from North American might have something to with the perception.
If a model can be made in plastic it will, and Finecast over time will go away, but it will take a long time. There is no rush to re-sculpt characters unless timed with a new release. No better evidence is Sisters of Battle, which are still in metal!
Above all, sources came out against this rumor, in much the same way the fake "leaked" 6th edition rules set came out.
Read the whole article here: 

http://bloodofkittens.com/blog/2013/11/15/rumor-it-finecast-anywhere/ 


So who is right?  I think GW is phasing out Finecast.  The Quality is weak and Injection molding is the way things are heading.  The profit margin is just so much better on injection molded models with almost zero QC issues.  But it may take some time.  But eventually Finecast is going to disappear.  I really don't think it was ever more than a stop gap to get GW out of metal and into plastic.

The Big Game III Spokane: A Big Writeup



Well, a couple months on and the dust has long since settled. The Big Game III was a major success and everyone involved had a blast. Being relatively new to Apocalypse despite a 5 year tenure in 40k, I made the decision to get some help running the game. Now, to say help run the game is a bit of an over statement of my duties. I helped to set up and organize the event, but with the little to no experience I had, I didn't want folks looking to me for answers in how to work the game.

Inquisition Codex Details!



More detail on the Inqusition Codex from White Dwarf Daily. 

This codex is shaping up to be a goodie.  Not that this army is going to be the next big Meta-changing army (I honestly don't give a damn about that), but it is going to give us GREAT fluff and a fun way to make our battle more fluffy.

From The Black Library via White Dwarf:
 
The front cover, illustrated by Marek Oken, is just one of the new pieces of artwork in the book, which focuses on the strange, dangerous and clandestine work of the Imperial Inquisition. The book talks in great depth about the three primary Ordos: the Ordo Hereticus, concerned with hunting down witches and psykers; the Ordo Xenos, tasked with the extermination of aliens; and the Ordo Malleus, who protect humanity from the Daemons of the Warp. Other Ordos are mentioned too, such as the sinister Ordo Sicarius and the unusual Ordo Chronos, who investigate (and try to prevent) time travel. The different factions of Inquisitors are talked about too, ranging from Thorians to Monodominants. Many famous (or notorious, depending on your point of view) Inquisitors are also covered in the book, including Gregor Eisenhorn, Witch Hunter Tyrus and Torquemada Coteaz.

Codex: Inquisition allows you to include an Inquisitor and his retinue in your army, be they Space Marines, Imperial Guard or even Xenos races. There's unique wargear in the book, such as the Liber Heresius and new Warlord Traits which can help you define the role and personality of your Inquisitor. Are they readers of the Imperial Tarot or collectors of forbidden Xenos technology? There are also full rules and points for building an Inquisitorial retinue, including Acolytes, Arco-flagellants, Jokaero Weaponsmiths and plenty more besides. To help you start your own Inquisitorial warband, here's a selection of Inquisitorial miniatures, all of which are available through the Games Workshop website.

 

Enjoy!

Hey everyone. I thought I'd take some time to give Flashgitz some due coverage. If you haven't heard of these guys yet, you should definitely check them out.
