Flying rules need some work anyways, so I'd be welcome for it, though to me it seems like just yesterday 8th came out. XD It always bothered me that these winged creatures would just be hovering over the ground like idiots. If I had a dragon, I'd sweep my enemies and not just sit there on the ground and try to stomp them to death.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

We're maybe a third of the way through 8th Edition's run... It came out Summer 2011. Talking about a 9th edition release right now is like talking about a 7th edition 40k release right now... it's not likely even in development yet, and won't be for at least another year and a half.

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?

Some news for fantasy 9th edition

Quote:
via Father Gabe on Faeit 212

Just got some news from several sources concerning the strong possibility of 9th edition Warhammer Fantasy.

1) Coming tomorrow to a GW near you will be a series of new posters for in store advertisement for something BIG as the corporate email stated.

2) Some GW stores are finding Island of Blood sets are being zeroed out of their system for restock. Similar when Dark Vengeance happened to Assault on Black Reach.

3) This part is speculation: Bretonnians are going to be playing a big part in the Nagash saga in the beginning, it is believed the following is going to happen:

a) Pre-Order for 9th Edition will be Sept 13th (with special editions - standard new edition merchandising)

b) October will receive the new box edition (if standard releases from past is an indicator) which may contain Bretonnians and Undead.

c) Bretonnians will have a new Army book, model release following that, possibly into November before the Christmas packs roll in.

d) intermingled among these releases will be probably some filler models (repackaged Crom/Valten/etc.), army bundles, etc.

4) Not of speculation, though it must be considered rumor, I (and a few chosen) have personally seen new artwork by John Blanche for Bretonnians. Does this mean it will be in the new book? No idea, but sometimes his stuff is used for the sculptors to pull concept to model.

Or we could be really blindsided by everything and it be 25 new paints (not very likely), Dark Eldar (possible) or something ridiculous like a mass Hobbit release. GW likes to have a strong second quarter launch that will help carry through 3rd quarter (end of February).
Preorders might be on my birthday

After seeing some of the models (Nagash and the Lord updates) I was quite excited for my Vampire Counts seeing a big boost with a lot more attention devoted to the undead. But the more I read the rumours (allies) and a rumour saying; undead are becoming much like demons, where everyone can summon them, sounds a bit painful. The entire point of a VC army is tarpitting and then hammering with strong vamp lord/spec unit. But now suddenly everyone can get masses of zombies and tarpit as well? Suddenly VC become even more difficult to play... Maybe it's just me being stupidly cynical at the moment.

Bretonnians can't come soon enough I'm really considering doing a pirate themed undead force but there's already several undead players in my local store and I'd rather play something no one else does.
