Well, it was official after a year of rumors that GW pulled the plug on GW Historicals.

Here is their “official” message:

Warhammer Historical Has Now Closed

We can no longer accept any further orders for our products

We would like to thank our customers who have purchased our publications over the years and hope you will continue to get many more years of gaming enjoyment from them

If you have any queries regarding orders that have been placed with Warhammer Historical please contact the Forge World Customer Service team…
A email from a GW employee said that he was trying to recover the material that was free on the website and publish it on the  YAHOO groups for various games so people could still enjoy the game line despite the closure.

People like me wonder if Fantasy Flight would snag up this line like they have for other past GW items like the RPGs and such? It would be a simple investment of just books and no miniatures as those can be aquired from other sources. Plus, some credit to my theory is that they already touched on the mini market with DUST and a few other games as they seem to be testing the waters to move outside board and RPG books now.

Here is my thoughts on my GW related blog about the company in general and where I think they are going….

All that remains is some words:

RIP Legends of the Old West, you died with your boots on and your six gun in hand!

Legends of the High Seas, may Davie Jones save you space at his lockers!

Gladiators of old, for those that are about to die, we salute you!
