Forgeworld is making a CD army

I bet they are making an army list, so I'm not so sure that this is going to go anywhere since the rumors of FW have their own CD army.

old rumor, unconfirmed. One guy posted 1 thing he "heard" on warseer, and then everybody started picking up on it as truth.

but yeah, possibly this project would be upended at some point in the near-ish future.

If that ends up being the case, it would likely be because enthusiast pressure forced GW to get their ass in gear! Its not like they couldn't have re-released CD's in the last dozen years...

I believe they are coming up on some benchmark copyright year, where they either have to use chaos dwarfs or lose the IP rights... not 100% on that, though I read it someplace.

Copyrights in UE are for 55 years, in some time this could increase...

I doubt somehow that they would not be able to renew the IP or copyrights, and I doubt very much they would just let them slide away.

Whatever happens in terms of a release I think it is highly unlikely it will be this year. So your rules should be fine. Next year......?

Their artwork would still be copywritten, but the trademarks for 'Chaos Dwarves', etc. could all be challenged, as there hasn't been commercial use of them in ages.

Saw a thread somewhere on FW supposed to do CD's , ended with a confirmed NO by FW staff ppl , so no worries FW not doing a CD army or minis according FW.
