Default Incoming! Warhammer!

Looks like the new WFB edition will be out in July!

In this issue: Incoming! Warhammer - The Game of Fantasy Battles

Incoming! Warhammer

Warhammer is coming! This July heralds the coming of Warhammer, The Game of Fantasy Battles.

The Warhammer world is a place riven by relentless warfare and the corrupting power of dark magic. Its a place where vile creatures and titanic monsters roam the lands, where vast armies of evil warriors unleash slaughter upon their victims and only the unceasing valour of the forces of Order prevent the whole world slipping away into chaos and death.

Amidst this tapestry of conflict and carnage are races fair and foul, warriors chivalrous and brutal. These are the combatants who fight for dominance of the world. From the blasted north come warmongering tribes of Chaos Warriors, armour-clad barbarians who have thrown their lot in with the Dark Gods of Chaos. In the Badlands gather the greenskinned marauders known as the Orcs and Goblins, vicious, brutal creatures whose insatiable lust for war grows almost as quickly as their vast numbers. Beneath the cities of the civilised realms nestle the repulsive ratmen, subhuman creatures whose machinations spread disease and distrust these are the Skaven and they wish only to destroy and dominate all others. Even the forests of the Old World are not safe, for the trees themselves are things of malign presence and the Beastmen dwell within, the children of Chaos braying beasts who crave slaughter and the chance to enact their savagery on the civilised races.

The Warhammer world is a place where you must bury your dead deeply, for Necromancers and Vampires raise the legions of undeath in their war against the living. Far away in the south the legendary kings of a long-dead kingdom now awaken, leaving their vast tomb cities to wage war upon all under the sun, their skeletal legions a chilling parody of their once glittering majesty.

All these examples of horror are enough to cause weaker hearts to quail, but there are those who resist the darkness, kingdoms and realms that fight for survival. The Empire, greatest of all the nations of Men musters regiments of brave soldiers. Armed with faith in Sigmar, their warrior god, and with tempered steel and black powder weapons they defend their lands. South and east of the Empire lies Bretonnia, a land of chivalry and noble tradition. There, bold knights harken the call of their mighty king and ride out to crusade against the monsters of the Old World. Dwarfs, in their mountain strongholds, are as unyielding as the stone around them as they battle above and below the ground. Loyal allies, but terrible enemies, the Dwarfs are brave-hearted and steadfast as they protect their once-great realm.

In far-off lands the Elves fight out their bitter blood feud against one another a mighty civilisation that spanned the continents but is now riven with strife and betrayal. Perhaps the greatest warriors in all the world, their numbers are now few and too many of those that remain are lost each day in the unending war between Ulthuan and Naggaroth.

This is a world where victory and death rest upon a knife-edge and the fate of the world, be it damnation or salvation, will soon be decided.

Warhammer, the Game of Fantasy Battles will be released in July. The preparation for this date has been a time of great excitement here in the Studio as we have lavished detail, care and attention onto the rulebook and the fantastic Citadel miniatures range that it accompanies.

Now is the time to gather your regiments, paint your armies and prepare for a battle like never before. If you have a Warhammer army, dust it off and finish up those last few models. If youve always been tempted to collect a force there really has never been a better time to start! Warhammer is coming and its going to be great.

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?

No offical word on the boxset, but I'm very worried. The only good thing is at least it won't be a major overhaul as they have only just released a new army book, so no rav hordes type changes.

Personally i wish they slowed down the rate which they go through editions otherwise some armybooks are 2 eds behinds others, and 1 army still is stuck in rav hordes.

If the cover is anything to go on then the boxset may contain chaos and empire, but until the set confirmed I'm not buying another kit, just in case one of the armies i collect get a mass of cheap troops, I still like the rumours of HE V skaven.

Good thing I didn't end up building a full army of Dark Elves. Guess I'll see what's changed after this comes out and then decide to play the game or not.

No mention of Daemons of Chaos in the blurb, I notice. Do you think GW have got the message and are trying to discretely sweep them under the proverbial rug?

I don't think so, the Ogre Kingdoms, Brettonians and Lizardmen weren't mentioned either

Heavy on the story, light on the details. Hopefully we'll find out more in the coming weeks, maybe they'll do an article on it in WD. At any rate, everybody STOP PANICKING!

Nothings been confirmed 100% yet, so stay calm, wait to find out some more info, and think that this games been going on 25 years, so it won't suddenly implode into absolute suckfulness overnight. Most of the rumours out there are absolute crap, the few that have the ring of truth sound far more reasonable, and we still don't have an overall picture of what the changes might look like, so it's hard to say "this rule sucks" in isolation, when we don't know what else might have changed. Just try to keep it together eh?
