I’ve come to the conclusion that, even though I love the models and current lore progression, I have zero interest in playing 40K right now. On the other hand, I’ve been wishing I had an army ready so I could play Age of Sigmar. Funny how these things wax and wane

I get that it’s harder to take those bold stands when you’re a multi-national, publicly traded company worth hundreds of millions of pounds, but Games Workshop didn’t get to where it is by being timid in the first place.
