Another awesome feature that I wished carried to gamesworkshop is that each unit that you purchase comes with card representations for fast access to stats abilities and damage counters.

H0RRIDF0RM Its a skirmish game with alot of emphasis on a warlock and his chosen warbeast being the core of the battlegroup.

Inbetween Warhammer 40k and Warhammer Fantasy leagues our local store owner convinced us to give them game a chance and about 14 people bought into it.

Whats really amazing is that for $100 dollars you could have a solid battle group. All of the models are cheaper in comparison to Gamesworkshop and most of the miniature range is very good.

Well there's something that I was in all honesty unaware of. Sounds great, I'm glad to hear that, thanks

Wiccus You dont want the metamorphosis and evolution books as those are last edition. Each faction will be getting their own faction books in the coming months as Mk II or the second edition of the game just came out. Other than that you can just buy the faction deck that has the cards of all the existing models in it excluding the brand new models that were released in like the last month.

Its definitely skirmishy but not simple by any means. It has a lot more tricky maneuvers than fantasy or 40k.

A very good game. Probably my favorite miniatures game. Theres something thats just really satisfying about having your big ass troll pick up a huge were wolf and throw it onto the enemy general and squish him. Or the image of your beast performing a trample attack and wiping out a whole unit of infantry with it.

Red Corsairs Yeah there are several books.

Primal MkII is the current main rulebook. Then there are the Metamorphosis and Evolution expansions. Then there are seperate Faction Books for some of the 4 different factions.

The Quick Start Rules are just to get you into it. But in general it is a much smaller scale of War than Warhammer Fantasy or 40k. You don't have huge armies, but much smaller Battlegroups. Just as well really because the models are quite expensive.

jigplums do you get armybooks or something for hoards? how do you work out what units you wanna buy for your Gang
08-10-10 11:16 PM
jigplums i think it is a very skirmishy game mate, ive heard its much more like Necromunda rather than warhammer

bitsandkits Just read through the quick start rules, im just wondering how much there is in the main rule set? as it just feels a little simple and skirmishy
