I also noticed this, but I noticed this over a year ago So there's no telling really when and if.

I believe all the 'repurposed' sets are on the way.

I was at my FLGS picking up Code of Chivalry and the owner asked me what the 'repurposed' stuff was that he was due to get soon.

Those of who have been awaiting 100 Years War......

it's coming soon I beleive

I really believe they are on their way since they all jumped from "Development" to "Shipping" on the upcoming page.

You are right! I'm sorry, I didn't notice this at first.

When have they ever posted an update other than "in stores" as a news item?

A fair call.

But for some reason I thought they may have put up a news item with the rules for download like they have most other boardgames. Or since its a long awaited release (and one that FFG never actually produced), they might have advertised it a bit.

Cheers,
Ben.

Ben,

Sorry for the pessimism here but I think this is the end of the line for BattleLore.

After these sets are sold I have a feeling it is Battle of Westroes that gets the attention.

My pessimism is also an attempt to prod someone, anyone, at FFG to respond and give me reason to believe otherwise whistle

I hope you're wrong there Dan... but I have an awful feeling that you're right.

If that's the case, time to get together and create a more encompassing CTA system that lets you pick your unit type like in HOTT (So a Beast unit can be anything from a pack of wolves to Uruk-hai Scouts) so we are able to use different races more easily. I have some groundwork done. If this is the end of Battlelore, at least we have a good launching point...

But I think if they end it, it will be a massive opportunity completely squandered by FFG and the biggest gaming disappointment for me in at least the last 10 years.

Cheers,
Ben.

Who knows. I can never get an answer from anyone.

It just doesn't make sense to me why they would go through all this effort to get repurposed sets out and keep adding things that weren't in DOW's pipeline. And especially with them still promoting it at cons.

But I guess they may just be trying to break even on their purchase. Though I would say if their passion is with Westeros, that they could make their profit there without wasting energy on the original.

Brian: Thanks for balancing out my pessimism with you optimism. The 'no answer from anyone' you mention is the sad part.

Ben: Todd & I have discussed making up our own FAQ/Updated Rules if it comes to this. Along with your groundwork we could keep some cool things going.

Would be very happy to be involved in that if it all does come crashing down.

I've been running Battlelore games using Splintered Light's Druids Children figures - I really love using them.

Just so people know, the local gaming shop here in Toronto says they are receiving repurposed sets in April.

In case anyone is interested, it looks like the base set and expansions are in stock at CSI ... The base set is $52.99.
