    Okay, I’ll bite – who are what are the Water Guild? These don’t look like GW designs to me, which is intriguing.

    • frank

      They are one of the new factions for Necromunda.

    • zeno666

      Its the usual GW thing. Looking at other games and “borrow” designs.

      • euansmith

        I seem to remember there being talk of a Necromunda Sketchbook from way back, done by John Blanche or someone, contained hundreds of designs for gang members and other inhabitants of Necromunda Hive Primus. I guess these designs might be based on designs from that book.

      • Patriarch

        Hardly just a GW thing. All fictional worlds borrow and get inspiration all over the place. I’m sure there is a lot of cross-fertilisation.

      • James Regan

        with the weird exception of orcs, which somehow everyone else seems to have copied off GW- by which i mean there are a lot of orcs that look like GW orcs, speak like GW orcs and are otherise very similar. For the most glaringly obvious example of creators somehow bending space-time to crib GW orcs, why on earth do the orcs in the LOTR films speak with cockney accents, when this is not in any way supported in Tolkiens work? orcs in warhammer had a side line in a topical parody of a current events issue around the time they were written, hence why their speech patterns reflect those of drunken football supporters from the 1980s, when south/east london rivalries dominated news of football hooliganism (hence the cockney accents). So, somehow, GW’s weirdly expansive influence on the depiction of orcs in media extends to retroactively imposing a now outdated piece of English social commentary into a Hollywood film, produced by a kiwi?

        I only point this out because of how litterally insane it is that GW’s writing of orcs is so influential despite them not being the first to depict orcs, nor the most famous depiction of orcs, and a good part of their depiction of orcs now being outdated satire.

    Spikey Bits said that they also confirmed Battlefleet Gothic is on its way back, but no other details. Need more info!!! Been waiting for this to return badly.

    • OctopusVolcano

      Theres a new Battlefleet gothic video game.. thats all ive seen

      • orionburn III

        Yeah, I know they’re doing a BFG 2 video game but this apparently was in reference to the old tabletop game coming back. I mean they said it would be coming back when they announced the specialist games division (that was like 2 years ago now) but mums the word since then. This is the first time I’ve heard of any update so I’m super excited for any bit of news.

  • Talos2

    Seems titanicus was completely left out of the weekender. Real shame

    • orionburn III

      Well, to be fair it was the weekender for HH and Necromunda. I think it likely we get an update on it at the next 40k Weekender.

      • Talos2

        It was at the last one, and the setting is Horus Heresy so it does fit.

        • orionburn III

          Was it? I lose track of what news comes from which event. And I wouldn’t think Titanicus would be a HH type setting. Always thought it more to be in 40k.

          • Talos2

            No always been 30k. The original was in fact the First Horus Heresy based game as they only had the money to do 2 identical opposing sets of robots fighting each other.

  • marxlives

    Just finishing up reading the “Godless” novel and it’s good to see Hexeris as intimidating in his sculpt as he is in the novel.
