That Ghost Warriors holiday pack thing is actually about 90 dollars less than buying all that shit separate. 3d Printers will certainly be interesting depending on what level of detail you can get with the cheaper versions.There was some discussion about it in another thread, but it is still unfathomable how Games Workshop still has no interest in making a straight up online translation of the tabletop Warhammer Game. Don't they realize that 3D printers are under $2k now and desktop 3D digital scanners are under $1k.

Noooooo! I was going to log in and check it out!!!http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/09...december-18th/Today is Warhammer Online's fifth anniversary, but instead of getting a celebration, the players are getting a pink slip from Mythic. The studio announced that it will be shutting WAR down as of December 18th because its licensing deal with Games Workshop has come to an end. ."
So...just like at release?I logged on to the emu server Return of Reckoning yesterday. Warhammer Online is a game that I have quite a bit of nostalgia for but never really went back to.
Game looked terrible, felt terrible, and stuff I was running in to in the first couple minutes of play didn't work.
