Default There is no Gav.....

According to the ever knowledgable Brimstone, Gav Thorpe has left GW, with rumours that Alessio has left as well.

Sauce

I don't know what to think about this, there are some things I wanted to wring his neck for (metaphorically speaking) but there were some really great things he did as well. Not to mention his clear passion for the hobby.

Thoughts?

Wasn't Fat Bloke's name Paul Sawyer? ???

I can't remember, and I am at work.

Possible proof that GW is starting to lose it's own support? They ignore they fans, but now they ignore the workers?

Who knows. Gav will be missed for good fluff, at least.

I checked the source there, is no confirmation yet.

That being said, I am starting to think this might be a good thing. I never liked the other Thorp, I like the other guys, Thorp always seemed like a premadonna(sp) to me, and got on my nerves.

Maybe they can get back Andy Chambers or Paul Sawyer.

Actually out of the two, I liked Gav more... He did some great work on the Dark Angels (not the list - which I don't like, but the fluff), and Alessio was responsible for the LOTR games *shudders*...

For my edification, other than the new C:SM book and the new Vampire counts book what "new" codexes has he worked on, going all the way back to the last new tau book.

Sure would -that guy was legendary. Coincidentally, our store had a staff member who looked EXACTLY like him (including the waistline), who was also called Paul. He left shortly after Fat Bloke left as well, to look after his new baby daughter. But anyway, I think all agree that WD was infinitely better when he was around (read: not a giant advert). On the subject of Gav, it's sad - he did some good stuff, and his replacer will undoubtedly be some coin-counting CEO who thinks a Space Marine is a sort of fish.
