Wait, what .... I'm rather going to continue playing 8th.



They did that one thing .... utterly destroyed the unique tactical aspect of the movement phase in WHFB and made it a clone of 40k, pile-in moves and all.



Anyhow ... enjoy ...

I believe GW is releasing the 4 page rules as a prelim to the full book set coming in early august.

If this is the only ruleset we are getting then I massively regret just dumping about 300 into a new Dark Elf army.

Seriously though:

Roll to hit: Use the "To hit" characteristic of the weapon.

Roll to wound: Use the "To wound" characteristic of the weapon.

So if you have a sword of 4+ to hit, and 4+ to wound it makes no difference whatsoever in any way what the target is, whether it's a Giant or a Snotling - you need two 4+s to cause damage? That makes no intuitive sense, at all...

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I wouldn't be so sure about that, really.
Have you read the 'Warscrolls' ? They've been explicitly designed to work in conjunction with these minimal rules. So nothing wouldn't be in need to be expanded further. Essentially, this means they'll be producing models and just hand you the 'rules' with them.
Well, honestly I don't care at the time being. Almost everybody I play with or discuss aspects of the game with, has declared they'll be continuing to play 8th.

Now, we can only hope that GW doesn't surprise with a new and fresh edition of 40k in 2016 which uses the stupidly simplified Age of Sigmar rules .... killing off one game at a time.

40k Armies: Dark Eldar / Adepta Sororitas
WHFB Armies: Vampire Counts / Empire / various Elves
Horus Heresy: Alpha Legion / Warp Cult

Yep, there is a full new edition of Warhammer,
this is just the skirmish game that has been long (ish) rumoured

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Yes, but there's a huge difference between "Valid and supported" and "Your current army is playable in the current form".

Because as it stands there's no way to translate 60 Spearmen (for example) into a usable unit for a round-base game system.

90% of people think they are above average.

But in AoS, bases don't matter. That is the only system the rumors have been specific to. The full 9th ed is anyones guess.

In a game as detailed and wide ranging as "Warhammer Age of Sigmar"

This is the equivalent of posted on the back of a fag packet. Get fucked, GW. Not only did I hate the End Times, I hate the aesthetics, and I hate the fluff.

I love how we've gone from models like this;

I can understand the frustration of people who chose WHFB for it's ranked look... It's a completely new beast that's being pushed now. But just as there's some diehards who still play 2nd ED 40k, you'll get diehards who will be playing 6th/7th/8th/... soon.

Apart from that, I like the idea of a simple basic ruleset that takes 10 minutes to learn. Adding depth through units, their synergy and combo's is pretty smart too. Basically how warmachine (and aparently the X-wing games, but that's second hand experience for me) handle it as well.

I had a WHFB army after having been a "40k veteran" for a while. The skaven from this set: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...=93266&page=12

They are now in Canada, hopefully giving more joy to the guy who bought them than they ever did to me. I couldn't stand how 8th worked. Luckily, I was able to gain money on the paint job, or else my venture into WHFB would be a failure on all sides.

So I am looking at this with a more open mind. I would NEVER EVER consider WHFB again after the absolutely horrible experience of having to paint literally hundreds of models, spend God knows what for these big infantry blocks,... only to see them blasted apart by one wizard at the opposing end of the field.

But the prospect of an "easy to get into" game with (hopefully) a somewhat nice skirmish entry level of a dozen or so model (as opposed to 20 to form minimum units that are worth f*ck all on the battlefield) , might convince me to give fantasy another go.

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!
