This has to be one of the funniest things I've read in awhile.

I don't play Fantasy - I collect Brets though, was always waiting for an update before I leapt in - but this seems nuts, flat out insanity, I know End Times is changing things up for Fantasy but it's my understanding that that is playing upon Lore and advancing the story. This just sounds like it completely guts it Jack the Ripper style.

Wonder how they could implement this sort of change without coming out with the core rules, and all the army books at the same time? I'll remain optimistic.

If this is true, they sound like they're trying to appeal to the folks who play Warmahordes.

That sounds shit, why would you do that to your fan base.
I don't have a club or play at lgs, is fantasy that dead that it needs such a reboot? This sounds like its fantasy's last hope to make money or its gone shenanigans.

Sounds fucking shit.

*Not a money grab*

Absolute bollocks. While I don't mind the idea of patching into the game to fix problems, it should be done free. That anyone believes the hype that GW won't intentionally create the imbalance (as really, the only way to balance OP'd units is to tone them down) is out of their fucking tree.

I had to laugh

'As these expansions are not permanent in the world, so too will these models not be.' then a little further down 'It will give everyone the opportunity and hopefully inspiration to do something new, but without invalidating everything from the past. It is opening room for creativity, not closing doors.'

Yeah because essentially making the bulk of your new models Limited Edition is not closing doors at all. And it makes it harder for people to try new factions or units unless they get them at launch unless they turn to eBay. This has got to be the most stupid thing going.

Three words that'll kill WHFB stone dead if true - Limited Edition Models.

Quote:
All the books (again, with the caveat that older books may not be optimal for the new core rules [but truthfully the core rules aren't changing wildly, like 5th to 6th edition 40k, really more of a tidied up 8th edition with a brand new setting]) are designed to be compatible.

Support will be towards the new book, new setting, however, with End Times being in the past. Viable, but not current.

Expect armies to have fewer units in their core books, which will be heavily focused on the fluff for where they are now, what they've been doing in the centuries immediately following the sundering. This will create a more "balanced" pool as they will be rapidly produced and released (consider a scale even somewhat faster than what we've had for 40k these past few years).


These will then be expanded on with supplements, not intended as money-grabs (as I am sure they will be received by the majority of your readers), but more as guided hands to acknowledge deficiencies in books, or even "global meta" changes. The first time that Games Workshop will be openly acknowledging things that need changes.

These units will typically get white dwarf rules treatments heralding the release in hardback of all of the new units from the previous month(s), for a new setting expansion, which will pit several of the races together (representing a collision).

As these expansions are not permanent in the world, so too will these models not be. They are intended to only get one template injection mold life-run, the same as the books will be printed only once in hardback, then delayed paperback.

They will of course remain legal throughout all of 9th, they will just be more limited eventually, the same as the end time models will not be available forever, the same as XYZ model is no longer available (just with a shorter life span than previous experienced). I mean... you can't get albion models anymore either, but that campaign was before people whined on the internet, so I guess that's why no one's complaining.
I don't think I'm alone in thinking "What the fucking fuck" when I read this...

Too much new information, way too fast. It's scaring the shit out of people. Why would GW spread this news around without easing anyone into the idea? I'm a GW apologist most of the time but... this is weird.

To offer some sort of benefit of the doubt, it could just be rumormongers spreading misinformation. The self-congratulating smugness on some of the stuff Faeit's run concerning this leads credence here.

That said, assuming it's not the case...what the absolute f-
