Default Anyone considerd warhammer historical

I was just wandering if anyone here is intrested in or has played warhammer historical, ive always been obsessed with history so i thought id have to give it a go, i was considering buying the ancient armies book and doing an army of greeks set in the punic wars.

Theres also the new great war book and from what i heard the rules for that are pretty much the same as 40k,so im guessing the ancient wars book has rules similar to warhammer fantasy.The only problem is theres no GW figures yet so you've got to buy your own from inderpendent model sites but i seen some good deals where you can get 60 plus figures for £80 so should work out ok.

Just asking basicly if anyones used the gaming books and can tell me whats different between them and regular warhammer and if they've found playing it a rewarding exsperience and if theres other players out there i could take on with my probably decadent athenian army as the wars rage on!!!!

I have thought about it myself, some of the fantasy range is suitable but for the most part finding good models can be tricky. The only thing that has stopped me is someone to game.

Thought about when I saw the book, but found alot of the armies too dry. Also very few people actually play and good mini's are hard to find. If you can convince some mates to play though I reckon it could be a blast though!

For me I have in to it its just finding minis that would fit that puts me off. I you use games workshop models you'll just end up playing warhammers, and other models just dont seem to have the consistancey and detail you would want in a war game.

Also finding opponents is always difficult in such obscure games.

Great War is excellant. I have purchased models from Renegade and found them to be excellant, both in terms of quality and value for money. They may take a while to show up at your door, but its definately worth it.
As previously mentioned, the difficulty may be finding an opponent. Try asking around at your local games club.

Stick a V8 in it!

I am very interested in Warhammer historical.

Currently slowly building Gaulish and Roman armies to battle each other. I have 4 celtic spearmen (lol) which I got from Gripping Beast.

The Shieldwall book is pretty nice too. ;)

Historically speaking the units and equipment is pretty well researched too which is nice.

They've just released a WWI book too which looks pretty cool.
