A Funeral for Specialist Games

Specialist Games has been unsupported for a while now.  If you're unfamiliar with me and my site, just look to the upper right.  I'm a huge cheerleader for Specialist Games.  I shed a tear when they stopped selling, but at least they kept the rules online for free.  It was a nice nod to the past.

The new Games Workshop website puts an end to that.  No more specialist.  Pour out a '40 for them; they're gone for good.

That's not to say they're DEAD.  You can still find the files online in several places.  I am considering building a Specialist Shrine right here on Four Strands Hobby just to make the files available to myself and others.

If you play specialist, KEEP IT ALIVE.  Share it.  Lend armies or fleets to friends.  Our friends are not gone so long as we remember them.

  1. I recently bought the boxed set off ebay after GW stopped it, luckily only cost me £50 odd.. I have about a 4000pt ork fleet and have now bought up about 2000pt of imperial and 2000pt of eldar to fight and ordered all the books, I love BFG and will keep playing it for as long as i can :)

    • Good for you! I can only assume that the pounds symbol in your post means that you are in England, but if I’m ever there I’d love to get a game with you!
