From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Works have taken a few actions building up to the release of Kill Team; Octavius
The first is a promise that no matter now many orders they receive, everyone who orders a copy will get that copy. That’s a nice change from products which sell out before people can refresh their website.
The second is that they have taken the highly unusual step (for Games Workshop, other companies do this all the time) of publishing a forward release calendar. The calendar is light on detail but at least demonstrates that there’s a forward plan of released for Kill Team over the next year.
Without using these words, Games Workshop are very keen to tell is that this Kill Team release will be nothing like Cursed City.
Remember Cursed City? Games Workshop are hoping you don’t remember the game that was released with a lot of build up, sold out in seconds, and then they refused to print any more ever for… reasons. Yet articles still appeared in White Dwarf, and the miniatures are now sold separately. There must have been ongoing plans, but these plans changed for… reasons.
Games Workshop are very keen to tell us it won’t be like that this time.
