Games Workshop shares tumble

Tags : money games workshop

Small thumb dawnofwar2start4

Hello there,

https://www.thisismoney.co.uk released a post about GW and we learnt a few thing.

1) Sales are ahead of last year

2) Profit are staying the same (so they spend more money ?if sales are ahead)

3) They are afraid of 2018/2019 (Brexit?)

4) Former chairman Tom Kirby's £20.3million disposal of Games Workshop stock last month. Did he know something was up? One would suspect not, given that he retired more than a year ago and shouldn't be privy to information regarding the day-to-day running of the business.'

ps : Before going in conspiracy theory frenzy. 20 millions worth of share is not that much for him. The 18 sept 2018 TK still had 1 552 349 shares (each one worth 3000 (GBX). He sold around 6000 of them ^^

Games Workshop spooked investors today with an unscheduled trading update warning of 'uncertainties in the trading periods ahead'.

The terse, 70-word announcement from the stock market darling, unsettled investors and triggered a 10 per cent slump in its shares to £30.15 - making it the worst performer in the FTSE 250.

The company, which makes and sells miniature fantasy characters and is best-known for table-top game favourite Warhammer, said today that sales were tracking ahead of last year's and its profits were broadly flat.

But it added: 'However, the Board remains aware that there are some uncertainties in the trading periods ahead for the rest of the 2018/19 financial year. A further update will be given as appropriate.'

Retail analyst Nick Bubb pointed out that, having updated the markets just last month, it is unclear why the firm has issued another trading update today, 'bar the fact that its share have been under a bit of pressure'.

'Make of that what you will,' Bubb said.

When This is Money contacted the firm for more clarity on the mysterious statement, a spokesperson declined to comment and said 'no one is available to speak with regards to your query.'

Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: 'Sadly the retailer's latest trading update is a reminder that no company is invincible.

'The market rarely likes brevity and it hates uncertainty, hence why the retailer's shares have taken a hit on the news. It is better to spell out the issues rather than keep investors guessing.'

He added: 'Some questions may also be asked as to the timing of former chairman Tom Kirby's £20.3million disposal of Games Workshop stock last month. Did he know something was up? One would suspect not, given that he retired more than a year ago and shouldn't be privy to information regarding the day-to-day running of the business.'

The Nottingham-based company, which has around 400 UK stores as well as operations in the United States, Australia, China and Japan, has seen its shares rocket by more than 500 per cent over the last two years.

This is despite its exposure to the embattled UK High Street, a squeeze in consumer spending and the perennial threat of computer games.

The firm, which is re-branding some of its Games Workshop stores to 'Warhammer', said last month that trading was in line with management expectations, despite tough comparables.

And at its most recent results, half-year profits surged to £38.8million on sales of of £108.9million - up 54 per cent.

Games Workshop generates three quarters of its sales overseas, so has benefited from a weaker pound since the Brexit vote, as well as its fast growing online business.

It has pumped out figurines to a fanatical audience since its formation in the 1970s, providing the parts for customers to assemble and paint their own 'armies'.

/Cheers.

Building A Speed Freeks Army

Tags : codex speed freeks orcs warhammer 40 000

Small thumb orks buildingspeedfreeksarmy oct18 feature 320x320

Hello there !

The new Codex: Orks is nearly upon us (2w) – and we reckon that if you’re anything like as excited about it as us, you’ll be starting a new army with it.

This codex offers all sorts of possibilities when building your lists – as well as the classic “Green Tide” of boyz, you’ll find Dread Mobs, armoured columns or anything else you can imagine will be pretty powerful. In fact, if you’re grabbing the Speed Freeks set this weekend, you’ll be well on your way to a pretty cool list!

To help you find your footing (and, just between us, to give you a sneak preview of some new Power costs from the new codex), we’ve written a nifty list designed to make the most of the Speed Freeks – if you’re looking to learn more about how they play, you can refresh your memory with our in-depth preview from yesterday.

We’ve built our list using Power rather than points for the sake of convenience. If you’re looking to build a matched play force, this list comes to about 2000 points, so shouldn’t need much adjusting.

“Speedwaaagh!”
HQ
Deffkilla Wartrike – 6 Power
Deffkilla Wartrike – 6 Power
Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun – 4 Power

Troops
10x Boyz – 4 Power
10x Boyz – 4 Power
10x Boyz – 4 Power

Fast Attack
Kustom Boosta-blasta – 5 Power
Shokkjump Dragsta – 6 Power
Boomdakka Snazzwagon – 5 Power
Megatrakka Scrapjet – 5 Power
Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy – 7 Power
3x Warbikers – 4 Power
3x Warbikers – 4 Power

Elites
5x Nobz – 7 Power
Nob with Waaagh! Banner – 4 Power

Heavy Support
Morkanaut – 15 Power

Dedicated Transport
Trukk – 3 Power
Trukk – 3 Power
Trukk – 3 Power

TOTAL: 99 Power

Command Points: 9


The core of any Speed Freeks list is a Deffkilla Wartrike, giving you an HQ that can keep up with the rest of your vehicles AND offer them some handy bonuses, not to mention that they’re brutally powerful combatants in their own right. As such, we’ve picked two so you can spread your aura abilities around as effectively as possible.

A Big Mek of your choice never goes amiss in a Speed Freeks army, letting you keep your favourite Vehicles fighting just a little bit longer.


This is the meat of the army. For fun, we’ve picked one of every new Ork Vehicle – this will give you loads of flexibility and allow you to tackle pretty much anything your enemies can throw at you. Of course, you’re free to focus on your favourites when writing your lists – an attack wing of Megatrakk Scrapjets or a convoy of Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies would be just as powerful!

We’ve also added a couple of units of Warbikers. These guys are still really handy in an Ork army and come in the Speed Freeks set, making adding them in a no-brainer.


Whether or not you use Troops in a Speed Freeks army is up to you! We’ve added a few units of Trukk-mounted Boyz into this list to hold objectives and give you some additional Command Points – with so many new Stratagems in the Orks codex, it’d be a shame not to use them.

From there, we had about 29 power (roughly 600 points) left and added a few nifty units that mesh really well with a Speed Freeks army. The Morkanaut is an absolutely brilliant choice for any armoured Ork army – keep yours at the centre of your convoy, and it’ll shield anyone nearby with its kustom force field. From there, we loaded up the Morkanaut with some Nobz (armed with your choice of weapons) and a Nob with Waaagh! Banner. The latter is cracking for getting some more attacks out of powerful close-combat Vehicles like the Megatrakk Scrapjet.

Fancy building this army for yourself? Speed Freeks is the perfect way to kick it off – make sure to pre-order your copy this weekend!

/Cheers.
Bob.

40K rules for Orks Vehicles

Tags : speed freeks orcs warhammer 40 000

Small thumb orkvehicles oct17 feature

hello there !

GW team released a massive post with tons of spoiler.

ps : The illustration image was named "Leak response" on the WC site

Speed Freeks is a new keyword in Codex: Orks shared by all the new Ork vehicles and other Orks who feel the call of the Speedwaaagh!, like Deffkoptas and Warbikers. In the lore, Orks have always been known for their love of speed, and this keyword lets you represent that with special rules and Stratagems designed just for you. Take Billowing Exhaust Clouds – a great give one of your new Ork vehicles a nifty durability boost:


The lynchpin of any good Ork vehicle army in the new codex is the Deffkilla Wartrike.

This vehicle is an HQ choice that allows any nearby vehicles and bikers to charge even after they’ve Advanced, letting you close the distance on your enemy with terrifying speed before smashing them to bits in close combat.

This ability works on ANY Orks in the same Clan with the Vehicle or Biker keyword, meaning you’ll be able to use it with your Trukks, Battlewagons, Deff Dreads or, if you’re feeling particularly brutal, Stompas!

The Megatrakk Scrapjet is a truly vicious Ork vehicle, excelling at scrapping enemy tanks or turning foes into coleslaw with its drill. Designed by enterprising Meks from downed Dakkajets and piloted by grounded Flyboyz, these vehicles are just as deadly as their aerial counterparts. Just check out the rokkit kannon:

And that’s just ONE of the guns – this vehicle is loaded with deadly firepower. With Dakka! Dakka! Dakka! – which lets Orks generate additional hits when they roll an unmodified 6 – this has the potential to scrap even tougher tanks in a single round of shooting. Should anyone survive – well, just ram them with the nose drill:

On raw number of shots alone, few come close to the Boomdakka Snazzwagon. Between a team of bottle-wielding Burna Boyz, a big shoota and the deadly Mek speshul, this is your dedicated Infantry-killer:

Don’t worry about having to choose between firing your burna bottles or other guns – the Boomdakka Snazzwagon has a special rule that lets you use both in the same shooting phase.

This vehicle is also one of the best defensively, thanks to its Billowing Fumes rule:

Even when destroyed, the Boomdakka Snazzwagon can still cause havoc, thanks to its high likelihood of exploding – just make sure yours is deep in enemy lines when it does so…


If you can’t solve a problem with a Squig, it probably isn’t worth solving. The Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy is the most versatile of the new Ork vehicles, capable of changing its firing profile to accommodate for a variety of different targets. Need to chew through some Terminators? Lob a bitey squig at them. What about tanks? A boom squig should do the trick:

What’s more, you’ll be able to use a squig mine to threaten anyone that gets close! Dealing mortal wounds to anyone unfortunate enough to tread on it, by using multiple Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies, you’ll be able to set up some deadly traps.


The Kustom Boosta-blasta is a fantastic all-rounder, effective at any range and pretty solid against anything you throw it at. If you’ve got a gap in your Ork list, fill it with one of these – they’re flexible enough that to help in just about any situation. Take the guns – you’re armed with four infantry-immolating burna exhausts for close range AND a hefty rivet kannon for picking off foes further away:

Of course, you can just use it to ram people too.


The Shokkjump Dragsta is the most unusual of the new Ork vehicles. For one, it’s – dare we say it – almost accurate by Orky standards, thanks to its paired Grot Gunner and Targetin’ Squig. You’ll be reliably hitting with the kustom shokk rifle on a 3+!

Where the Shokkjump Dragsta really shines is its incredible (if unpredictable) mobility. Roll a 4+ on your Advance roll, and it’ll teleport to another spot of your choice on the board, making it perfect for last-minute objective grabs or getting into position for a crucial shot.

Every single one of these new vehicles opens up countless possibilities when building your lists – and they’re very, very fun to use, too. And we haven’t even got into combining them with Clan Kulturs…

The Speed Freeks boxed game, which you can pre-order it from Saturday, allows you to build one Kustom Boosta-blasta and one Shokkjump Dragsta, as well as six Warbikers. The rest of the vehicles we’ve mentioned will all be available as separate kits alongside the long-awaited launch of Codex: Orks, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, let us know which one you’re looking forward to most on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page.

ps : Grot gunner add 1 to hit roll ^^ and 2 if you have the grot gunner and a targeting squig ^^ (haha)

/Cheers.
