Black Industries, the makers of Warhammer, is to close.
Kevin Rountree General Manager of BL Publishing said ‘As a result of the continued and impressive success of our core novels business, which we have built around 40K and Warhammer, we have decided to focus all of our efforts on growing this part of our business. Black Industries has seen fantastic success, most recently with Talisman and Dark Heresy. This change does not take away from that achievement rather it allows BL Publishing to focus on producing the best novels we can. This is a purely commercial decision and will enable us to carry on the huge growth that we have recently been experiencing with our novels’.
Don’t get me wrong, novels based in such universes are excellent. It’s just sad when a pen and paper RPG falls by the wayside. Speaking of pen-and-paper-based adventure, does anybody else miss the Fighting Fantasy books?by
