I love it ! , no reall complaints
It's good , but they could do a little better
I am neutral , I don't feel strongly either way
It's okay ,but they need to fix a great deal of things
I hate it ! everythings so expensive and the rules suck!
No really what has GW done right ? There are so many post and polls on the subject of what is wrong with the game and the company that I want to know what out there do you people find right, and which Items you just want to see polished up.
In the spirit of the holiday please try to stay up-beat and on point:drinking:
I'll get every one started.
1. The new Codex format.
I love the new dexs, but not for the reason you might think. The fact that sombody has begun to treat all the armies " In a standard format" means that GW is starting to get a vision of where the game is headed and how to get there. No longer will 40k be a dumbed down version of fantasy. Or as I like to think of it "Elves in space.".
2.The release of apocolypse. I haven't had this much fun since the RT days , goodbye FOC hello massive army of hurt.
3.New shiny stuff. Everybody loves new shiny stuff look at all the new plastic . Hmmmmm...plastic
There you go 3 things they do right.
As far as polish goes I would like to see some small changes , the first would be to advance the time line past dec 31 999 M41. , ( other games have done it succesfully ) Mabey a change could involve a new add on rule-set that reverses the recent dumbing down trend. Mabey the return of offensive grenades and overwatch. Or somthing to this effect , I know we need to attract new gamers but how about something for the old ones as well.
Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.
Personally, I really like how the fluff has been expanded in the codecies. No longer are they a 30 page book with 5 of fluff, 15 rules and 10 with pictures of models. A new codex has fluff that is nearly as long as the old codex, which I think helps a lot of players really get into the universe. For instance, there are now detailed versions of the 3 tyranid invasions available to every tyranid player. You don't have to hunt for as much stuff anymore and I really like that.
I also agree about the quality of the models. There are fewer and fewer truely silly, goofy looking models that I would never buy in a million years being produced. Take ogryns for example. The new models are much better than the old and most models are getting better with each incarnation.

I'm really looking forward to the Demon codex, it has the potential to be a fantastic book fluffwise.
I just hope they'll manage to complete Dark Eldar's new range of minies and codex before I get too old to paint ._.

I like to play at my local GW, and the people are nice, but I've only bought 1 thing from any GW in the past 7 years. They're too expensive. . . eBay for me.
Are you kidding?
As the rules are, they're fun, simple enough to remember easily, and easy to learn, play 2 games and you've got the gist of it.
Offensive grenades maybe, it'd be cool but, to look at it realistically, a whole squad of asplosions? Not gonna work too well.
Overwatch NO NO NO!!!
Necromunda is hell! Everyone sits back and waits for the other guy to step out coz they're too pansy to walk out themselves, WITH GOOD REASON!
Overwatch sucked, it made the game campy, rapidfire weapons give a good reason to stay stationary, but also the provide vulnerability, if you stand there, you're gonna get shot, if you're right behind a wall, you can step out and gun someone down, and that makes it more tactical.
They need to make more plastic models available, Plastic Sisters of battle, Grey knights, Ork deff dreads, etc.
But other than the material issues, I have no problems with GW. None at all.
Money too. Bloody greedy bastards...
In general, I'm in favour of GW. While I would like to see them write a complete set of tight, coherent rules, the state of their rules-writing is really the only complaint I have about the company.
I love their new models. In the past, I have been iffy on some of the model ranges. I still am, but every new model which has been released, I have liked. The stuff they're doing with their plastic kits now is amazing. Anyone seen the new ork stuff? It's amazing.
I like the new codices. For 40k, they definitely seem to mark a good trend in both the quality of the rules and the quality of the design work. A few rough flaws poke through the finish, but overall, I think they're a step in the right direction. The extra care given to writing the rules (not always successful, but still a noticable improvement over older codices) gives me hope for V.5
Apocalypse. It's a great suppliment.
There are a few things I'd change. For one, I'd like to see every codex get an overhaul--not in terms of what things do, but just in terms of how their rules are written. I'd like to see the same thing done for the BGB. The rules are alright0, but they're often written in such a way that they don't support the ways in which we actually play the game. They often don't actually work at all.
I don't think the BA codex should have been released in White Dwarf, either. I'd feel jipped were I a BA player.
Still, my support for GW is greater now than it has been in years.
Once again, the conservative, sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!
As a loyal DA player I agree 100%. I wanted the free codex...I don't think the BA codex should have been released in White Dwarf, either. I'd feel jipped were I a BA player.
My only complaint about GW is their update schedule. I mean seriously would it kill them to release books for my armies first?
I haven't had a real complaint about GW in ages. They know what they're doing and they do it well, so let them keep at it.
Veni Vidi Variant
I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.
The spikey ones go faster.
98% of the teen population has smoked weed, the other 2% went straight to crack.
Saga of the Ages. Click it.
Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
I do like the quality of the models. Also, I do like that alot of them are in plastic.
Even though the rules are sometimes not written well, the rules are generally there.
My only real complaint is about the change in the codex format, starting with the Dark Angels codex, and continuing from there. I don't own Dark Angels, Eldar, or Chaos, but I play against them once in a while.
I hate when my opponent uses something I've never heard of, ask to see in the codex what it is. They don't have all of the information that is important to a particular unit all in one place. The have the points cost in the section in the back, they have the rules somewhere else. Why can't they have it like the older codexes and just have an armoury section, then the unit section, where all the rules, stats, and point costs are laid out all together?
The new format might be convenient for someone who knows all the rules, but their opponent may not know all the rules, and it wastes alot of time when the opponent asks about a particular rule or ability, then have to wait as the eldar or chaos player fumbling through the codex, moving between multiple sections to try and find the right entry.
MacGyver = Crushing Victory
They haven't released a game based on The Coneheads.
"But courage which goes against military expediency is stupidity..."
They seem to be moving away from metal, which is ALWAYS good. So much hassle to put together, still struggling with my carnosaur.
Yet the prices are increasing (£3 more for most troop sets) which is ALWAYS bad. Ah well, still love warhammer.
EDIT: Another complaint is that they've severely nerfed their website - what happened to the forums and REGULAR news?
