Quirk finally wins a campaign and the video gets lost. He even loses at winning. Poor Quirk.

I would agree that it is unlikely to get more support beyond the book reprint. Think it had 3 goals, 1 push initial sales of new terrain via bundle box, 2 carry over hype to sell new terrain in separate boxes, 3 stopgap between 8ths providing some mechanics similar to what 8th may have in a format where they work really well.
All the above I think have done really well but can't see much benifit from long term support/updates

I disagree with your comment, regarding GW not supporting Armageddon in the future. With how quickly the box set sold out, i'd be surprised if they aren't already planning 'expansion' box sets. Meaning: I doubt they'd make models specifically for the game, but i could see scenario/campaign update books and new terrain pieces being added in any given expansion box set.

Absolutely loved watching the campaign games. Also enjoyed watching the wrap-up. This has me pumped to get some stuff up and moving. Terrain for the box is awesome, can't wait to get my hands on more of it.

"Now I'm not going to name names, but all I'll say is that someone really Quirked it up..."

Hamoclease (6 months ago): - delete
I do find it curious that GW would use SW:Armageddon as an entry point, given that the boxed set (entry level product with everything included at a reasonable price) was snapped up overwhelmingly by existing customers who wanted terrain for cheap and rules/counters. It's a much different prospect selling separate rules, miniatures, terrain, counters - all of a sudden it's not such an affordable or enticing an option for new/younger players. Given that, the logical solution is to bring the boxed set back as a standard line.
