Zane Posted January 31, 2008 Report Share Posted January 31, 2008 I was utterly shocked to hear that Black Industries is ceasing production of RPG's as of September 2008. I simply cannot believe it. Especially after the highly successful sale of their new Warhammer 40,000: Dark Heresy RPG. Is anyone else as distraught as I am about this? I'm at a loss for words. The past couple weeks have really sucked for me, and now this. I didn't even know that the first book was out, I thought that it was coming out at the beginning of March. I was planning on buying each book for the game as they came out. That's something I just don't do anymore. I've sunk more money than I care to think about into stuff from Games Workshop over the past 20 years or so. Shoot, to make it on topic, the first item I bought of theirs was Call of Cthulhu 3rd Ed. I've been a huge 40k fan since the 1st Ed. book. A couple years ago I even spent my Sabbatical building and painting a Tau Army (and dealing with a newborn). Like I said, I've spent more on their miniatures than I want to think about over the years, yet besides Warhammer 40k they've either basically, or totally dropped support for my favorite wargames. This is enough to make me seriously consider dropping my White Dwarf subscription (not sure why I'm wasting money on it as all it is anymore is a catalog), and selling off my Games Workshop wargaming stuff. I don't currently have time to play, but put everything safely in storage to wait till the kids get old enough to play if they want, or I once again have the time (not the first time I've taken a few years off from 40k). If I was to sell all of it off, I'd have regain a lot of storage space, and should be able to raise the money for some gear I want for another hobby. Last I checked, I have a lot of stuff that goes for decent prices on eBay, including most, if not all of the miniatures for their first aborted attempt at a WH40K RPG from around '92. The only thing that might keep me from going out and selling off everything is the fear that in a few years I'll jump back in. I'd hate to jump back in and have to start from scratch again. Still I've been bitten a few too many times by GW, and their prices are now worse than outrageous. Less than 20 years ago you could buy a box or two of plastic mini's for $30 a box and play, now you're looking at several hundred for a playable army.
