Open Thread – What if GW Goes Away?

Warhammer 40K

At least once a day a post goes up about the “evil entity” Games Workshop.  So the question I pose, “What if GW packed it up and quit the business?”  What then?

Games Workshop has been in some level of gaming since 1975.  They started out with wooden gaming boards, then moved to RPG miniatures with their Citadel miniature line, and finally in 1991 starting the juggernaut of Warhammer and Warhammer 40K. It’s been almost 40 years now and they have hit some rough patches of late.
This isn’t a post saying it’s going to happen (because GW isn’t going anywhere).  This post is REALLY about what you the hardcore 40K/WFB gamers really like and respond to in your beloved GW worlds, and what other games you think would best scratch that itch?
So be honest, give everyone else a fair shake and let us know what would you do?  Keep playing the latest edition forever, invent your own rules, try out another game?

What triggers you to look at a new game?  How many games are you actively modeling or playing now?
