On the Evolution of Imperial Ship Design Philosophy.
« on: June 17, 2017, 02:15:37 AM »
Disclaimer: GW's fluff is inconsistent.  Sometimes in the same sentence.  Be warned.

Given the recent, and massive, overhaul in GW fluff, particularly the gruesome demise of the 'Big Gun Lobby' at the hands (and talons, and blades) of the so called 'Dark Eldar' and the extensive damage that presumably accompanied that to Segmentum Fortress Bakka and it's facilities, as well as, well, Age of Primarch, it is safe to say that many of the important decisions for about half, if not all of, IN are coming out of Calth.

This upsets many long held beliefs about the relationship between IN and SM. 

Where do you see this fundamental shift in IN taking BFG fluff and, if rumors are true, future versions of the game?

I've been out of the loop for a while, what rumors are going around? Do you have a link/site to point me to?

I think he's referring to Forge World remaking various specialist games. Blood bowl is very obviously out and doing quite well, Adeptus Titanicus has been announced and some material has been teased.

With regard to BFG they said they'd get to it eventually, but my money is 100% on them setting it during the Horus Heresy.

I'll take that bet.

I have heard about FW taking on SG stuff after initial launch by GW, but heard nothing else. Seeing as BB is getting this treatment, I think we can say this is true

I also remember hearing that the flight bases are being discontinued as some point in the near future, anyone able to confirm/deny?

With regard to BFG they said they'd get to it eventually, but my money is 100% on them setting it during the Horus Heresy.

Would not put it past them at all...100+ for a battleship most likely. That being said, still cheaper than Ebay these days! ;D
