The GW news is no surprise at all, they are just following their usual strategy, which they have been doing since around 1990.
The staggered re-release of their secondary games comes around every few years. support for said games is either limited to a short window around "limited stock" releases or for a year or so after they come out, before being retired again.

I'm sure it's welcome news for fans of some of the games in question though :)

Well I love both Epic and BFG and I'm not so sure. Both games play great though there are a few rough edges and I'd rather not see an "updated" rule set that messes with either of them more than polishing the edges. The prospect of new models is a both nice and a little weird too. Honestly, for me, if it's anything Marine, IG, AMTL, Skitarii, Necron, Eldar, or Nid based I'm not really sure I'd bother unless the models are exceptional.

I half expect BFG to end up something like Dreadfleet with a play mat and a few ships for either side and the rules toned down. Epic is a bit more challenging so I figure we either won't see a box for it or the box will be a considerably smaller skirmish style game just replacing 28mm figure with 6mm.

Apparently the revived Specialist Games will fall under Forge World's wings, which will hopefully make all this very interesting...

They did an awesome job on them - those rifles convert into space ship hulls perfectly!
Oh yeah I can make that....

They are very cool indeed. Just the right level of detail I think too.
