The old folk home for intellectual property
As well as doing a bit of knight painting today, I was also looking at this.
It’s interesting to see what Games Workshop thought were good ideas in the past. It also makes you think, in ten years, what will they have gotten rid of from the current crop of intellectual properties that we all think of a terrific ideas now? Will Tomb Kings or Wood Elves be around, for instance? Will they divide up another army into two or three armies? Will they introduce a completely new one?
As it stands at the moment, I’m sure you think that they have all the armies they need, and that it doesn’t need expanding. To be honest, this is what I thought when we just had ‘Undead’. But that was split into Tomb Kings and Vampire Counts, and it works great. Lizardmen and Ogre Kingdoms were introduced out of nowhere. Two civilisations that just popped up over night. One that helped found the world!
To be honest, I don’t mind if they add new armies, take them out or divide them up. Just as long as they don’t put in fishmen.
