Default Fantasy 9th Edition Rumours updated 12-4-14

9th edition has been part of the Fantasy talk for some time, and now word is out that Fantasy's new edition will return with flying options. Now this makes sense as both Fantasy and 40k tend to feed each other, and as such, I would expect 9th to also include a heavy dose of allies rules as well.


Please remember that these are rumors

via Bigred over on the Bols Lounge
Skaven Take to the Air
From the birds in the trees...

Skaven are being worked on and penciled in for 2014.
In particular flying options are being put through their paces.
Editor's note: This goes in line with the 9th rumors we have been hearing of flyers (with lots of new dedicated rules - see 40K 6th) returning to WFB after many editions of absence.

Nah, it's bullshit. BolS are so far behind the bellcurve for rumours it's not funny, and the only "rumour" is that the 8th edition game is coming to a close compared to the "4 year rule" people seem to have up.

Flying Skaven? I doubt it as its completely against their nature and all given fluff for them ever.

i'm hearing fantasy allies will turn up by an expansion and not in the next rulebook,
I expect the new rule book in 2015 but that's because it ties in with some things I do know and not because I know anything about the book itself.

I would expect skaven to have anti-air weapons but not sure about flying skaven, 2014 is likely to be correct though for skaven

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?

I sincerely doubt GW cares about that when the smallest border skirmish has a L4 Wizard, Steam Tank, and an order of Demigryph Knights.

It would not be beyond possibility that the "flying" skaven are skaven using the flying rules for tunnelling units - ultimately of the unit goes up or down it's pretty immaterial just that the unit cannot be targeted while doing it.

It would of course also mean that GW could stealth test the rules by initially makign tunnelling skaven before they re-introduce flying high in the next ed.

I wouldnt mind the flying high rules coming back. As long as they bring back the magic spell that destroys all units flying high as well.

That always upset my bloodthirster.

Man, if true allies come to WHFB, and I can legitimately ally Dark Elves with Skaven without heavy drawbacks, then I would be far too tempted to not buy into WHFB. So far, only one edition tempted me to buy in, which was whichever edition where they last redid Dwarfs. However, all my dwarfs got stolen, so I only ever got to play one battle.

Let me ally Dark Elves and Skaven, GW! (Almost) everything will be forgiven!

That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
