Then let me be the first to offer my play testing serviceswhistle

I agree though it would be a daunting task.Having played many many games of Runewars there are many things that balance the game and they were obviously not developed by chance. I would almost prefer that another game with perhaps a different theme + some new mechanics was developed.

I think it has to do with how popular the game is. What would expected sales of the expansion be, and if the time required to deliver a good product would be profitable.

At the moment FFG doesn't seem to give much attention to their own IP anyway, aside Descent.

They are putting most of their efforts in Starwars, Netrunner, Warhammer and other Money Milking *arhem* 'DLC' products. Which is the logical thing to do business wise.

But I keep my fingers crossed, one day these long awaited factions will be announced. *insert sarcasm* each faction sold separately and leaders also sold separately. But I digress..

I don't think playtesting has anything to do with it. They are just focusing on other IP's.

years ago when there was no Runewars and Corey was not a game designer, my older brothers used to play Battlemist which was published by Fantasy Flight Games and it had six factions and the game was fairly balanced. many of its game mechanics were used to create Runewars.
I think FFG will visit Runewars again after they are finished with Talisman and Descent.
FFG gave us a little taste of the 2 potential new factions in their card game Rune Age in the expansion Rune Age: Oath and Anvil.
I am hoping soon

Well it would be really nice to see a new expanion i really liked the banners of war one. With its new cards to polish my elves its just so much more fun to play

But i dont think there will come a new expansion. They did the revised edition but did not the revised edition of banners of war. So i dont think they will announce a new product. sadly

I don't think they need to do a revised edition of the expansion; it's compatible with the revised edition as is. All they need to do is reprint it, and they may still be actively doing so as needed for all I know.
