Talking with the GW Design Studio – FTN Interview

3 Minute Read
Apr 3 2017

Paul sits down with a couple of guys from the GW Design Studio at Adepticon.  We talk Shadespire, and the future of 40k!

We don’t know what is coming down the pipe for 40k rules at the moment.  It is fun trying to read between the lines of every scrap of info we get!

Hey hey,

This is part of our ongoing coverage from Adpeticon 2017.  Paul gets to chat with Eddie Eccles from the GW community team, Jes Bickham and Robbin Cruddace from the GW rules design team.

Obviously, there is only so much they can reveal in this chat but they covered some pretty interesting things during their studio preview and we get to expound on them a little more here.  For me, this really gets the wheels turning again.  I love planning for the unexpected and dreaming of new things I want to buy and new ways to use my existing figs.

You can tell these guys are excited about the new things coming down the pipe and it was an absolute joy speaking with them.  I try to ask the hard questions – like about Squats and game balance but this ends up being a great chat about the current state of things and the wonderful things to come.

Mr. Bickham helped jump-start the new White Dwarf magazine and I just had to shake his hand. This magazine is better than it ever has been, if you aren’t already a regular subscriber please check it out.

These guys got to see all that Adepticon had to offer and played in several of the events over the weekend.  I have no doubt that they will take some of this culture with them across the Atlanta.


It was a true pleasure speaking with these guys.

What do you guys think about bringing back movement values and armor save modifiers?

FTN mostly focuses on Warhammer 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.
