Why doesn't Games Workshop Sell Warhammer Quest anymore?

Re: Warhammer Quest



Not enough profit. It's cheeper to redo the rules for the other games (plus the codexes) and sell them without any miniatures...

It's a good way to make money.

*shrugs* Such is life.

They think it won't sell enough of their minis... meanwhile there's idiots like me who have toys from every army list out there. Oh well. I don't see why they wouldn't just re-release the Rulebooks and Dungeon Sectons without all the minis. They could easily create a revamped package the size of "Catacombs of Terror" and sell it through Fanatic with little investment. They do that with several of their older games and people still play them.

Re: Warhammer Quest


They're a miniature company not a games company. They did release plastic miniatures from WQ and Talisman 3rd edition in small boxes: Adventurers, Chaos, Dungeon Denizens, Knights(WFB), and Orc Mob.

However, the rules and expansions for WQ are so flawed, I wouldn't welcome a re-release. Besides, I have what I need.

Thanks for all you replys,

anyone who got hold of r the original box, is laughing anyway and as long as GW don't mind it all being avalable to print out from the web that's okay isn't it.

Re: Warhammer Quest


On the mention of that online idea, I wanted to say that Fanatic, the company that has the rules for their highest selling game online (useless without the board, I guess), decided not to do that same with WHQ, even though I offered to scan the books for them (there is a PDF at Bruno's). I think they just hate us. emoticon

Re: Warhammer Quest



You can print off new ones. I'm certain there is at least one location in this community that has them scanned in. Hi res color on card stock and if they need to be thick a little glue to cardboard. Lamination ain't so bad either.

Or.

You can buy my spare set Warrior cards off me.
