Guys
Unfortunately work kept me from my crusade here Very Happy
So as far as the idea of ghq letting us vote on new realises not much has happened
I did pm ghq with our proposal but had no response yet, maybe pm is not the right channel to contact ghq?
But we did have some fantastic ideas.
Panzergator mentioned that maybe we should have like a master list from which to vote each year, off course we would have to create one that would at least show ghq the range of models we are talking about.
Another one was from jaxenro he wrote

Maybe we could work this in reverse

If GHQ has a master list set for a few years of either new or retooling maybe they would let us prioritize it? Sort of a "we're thinking of doing these twelve next what would you like first"?


Very interesting

So what do you guys think?
Do we give up?
Should I run a moderately warm bath and cut my wrists in disgrace ?


Yours sincerely

Fireball

The problem with these kinds of lists is that they rarely, if ever, correspond to overall sales. Those most likely to vote are obviously devoted fans. But pleasing a tiny core group may not be great business.

I know I see lots of stuff on the "I'd Like to See" list that I'd never buy - because I'm a gamer and only need the models that end up in battle. I might buy something as an objective, or for a very unusual scenario. But if it doesn't routinely end up in battle, I've got other things to spend money on. Especially since you have to buy multiples.

I do not, for example, own a single ambulance. Ditto many support vehicles such as fuel trucks. I know a few guys buy all that, but heck, I see a lot of collections where they don;t even have infantry, much less "tail" items.

I have spoken to many manufacturers who proposed making X to great acclaim and excitement and sold....none.

If you really want to do something like this make it a kickstarter where people have to put up more than a post on a thread proclaiming "I'd buy 50!"

Money talks, posting walks.

I like the idea of Ghq letting us prioritize their future releases. I suspect the decision for new sculpts is a calculated business move. And some of those lists we make do have really obscure items, ones probably best produced on shapeways.
