This is the sort of thing I'd love to see done for the new HeroQuest remake with questions answered. Just wanted to say that's cool!

I got WHQ as soon as it was released back in 96. It was the last big box game that GW would make for a long while, as GW said that making board games just was not profitable enough. Apparently, the board components and packaging were too costly to produce, and as always, GW really saw WHQ as a way to get fans of dungeon crawlers into their miniatures games.

WHQ suffered because GW wasn't quite sure where it was going with things like Fanatic Press, and without a store presence at a time of limited internet, information on WHQ was scare and sales suffered.

GW is famous for it's board games, but GW sometimes forgets WHY they are famous for them. Every now and then, they'll have the bright idea to reprint one of their board games or other boxed games, because of "demand." The problem is that most people "demanding" the boxed games already have the original material, so what they are really after is new content, which is way more costly than reprinting old material.

It's also sad what has happened to the WHQ brand these days. It's gone a bit schizophrenic, as it seems any sort of board game will have WHQ slapped on it, regardless of the fact that they are different complete games, and quite often incompatible with each other in terms of tones and mechanics...

I would say WHQ was pretty well supported. There were loads of Character expansions, two big box expansions, several treasure packs, 3 issues of Deathblow fan magazine, some citadel journal content, and around ten White Dwarf expansions (including new tiles etc).

This is more than quite a lot of their other big box games of the period.
