Indeed - I have noticed that and it was a pleasant change.
It's not so much that GW has ever made an individual model unplayable (at least, not for me), more to the point they reorganize the army lists so that the army I have is no longer playable. Units need to be overhauled with new models, and the only hope for the obsolete is to take up a position in a newly-purchased unit.
This is probably how I wound up with over 4500 points of Space Wolves over the years - yet I'm still painting up an army that I can currently use on the table.
Also, I'm seeing how I'll be able to play a normal game of Warmachine with as few as three models, usually less than 10, and seldom more than 20. That's about 20-25% of the size of my Space Wolves army. That means I can have a complete force painted up in a couple weeks, instead of several months. And the price is comparable on a per-model basis (actually a little less), which means I can build a WMH army for a lot less than a 40K one.
I'll still play 40K, and probably even expand my army... but I'm through with chasing after it, if you know what I mean.

I wouldn't mind if I only had to overhaul my army once... but I've been playing since Rogue Trader, 25 years ago. So that's been 4 times that I've needed to redo the army - I don't dare to think how many thousands of dollars went into it. I have sold, given away, and occasionally even thrown out what I can't use - and I've still got some stuff I'm going to take to the local game store today and see if I can trade for credit.
I had a Squat army, so I snort when people complain about 1 or 2 squads going out of circulation
I feel your pain - I had a Squat force as well... pity that they annihilated that race from the game. It's one of the reasons a Rhulic force in WMH is appealing to me. I tend to gravitate towards Dwarves in most fantasy games and MMOs, it seems.
I'm starting to introduce him to GW stuff - if only because I'd rather he did that when he gets a bit older than some other stuff (tm) that could happen.
Funny, that's the same reason why my wife indulges my hobby.
