Re: Warhammer: The Old World

Oh absolutely. It's both entirely possible to go too far and obviously has on occasion. At the moment it seems like GW is intent on correcting those kinds of imbalances so if that would continue I think it'd likely turn out at least interesting.

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

Well some imbalance is what makes it Warhammer.

Key word being /some/. Games can be over balanced. Not that I expect it from GW but I feel that strongly enough to at least bring it up.

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

Yeah. Bell of Lost Souls had this article with a lot of rumors that were posted on Faeit 212 . Rumors are saying 7th edition with influences from surrounding editions, which I've got no real problems with if that's true. Still years out it seems like either way.

Re: Is there a summary of how I can play HE in AoS 3.0?

Unlike the older editions of Age of Sigmar, all in my own personal opinion of course, this third edition of the game seems to be a lot more interesting. Our club has actually picked it up and we're pushing above a thousand points in our Path to Glory campaign. I find it's a worthy game and recommend...

Re: Warhammer the old world

No, I was specifically talking about my community of friends and people who played Warhammer Fantasy. Nothing was picked up to replace it, no games of the old system were played, etc. No fan made continuations, no kings of war, no game of thrones, no historical, no just play older editions. Nothing.

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

Thank goodness we know what The Old World is actually supposed to be now. I'm very curious what the rules will end up looking like and how they're going to present models to people. Just rule books? Rules and then reboxed kits? Forgeworld only? I have so many questions!

Re: Line of Sight Rules question.

Well, if I'm remembering correctly, it's true line of sight. So you're expected to get in close and try and decide that based upon your judgement if the unit can make out what it's targeting. So it's possible a unit might block line of sight, or it might not. I don't believe they provide any cover e...

So we had the initial announcement a few weeks ago of work starting on The Old World and square bases being teased, but now they've got rumors of even newer elves more in line with what used to be at least from the artwork used to described them with this spring. So new elves. Anyone seen anything a...

Second Edition

Hey, it looks like the materials are out for second edition and it's looking a lot more like an actual game this time around. It's still not Warhammer Fantasy, but at least this feels less like a slap in the face. Aelfs also seem to have some showing on the factions page.

Re: How has AoS done in your area?

The FLGS has sold 1 box of AoS as of last week, and that was one of the owners so they could put them together for display purposes.

At present we're working on developing something new to replace Warhammer in stages. 7th edition is looking a lot more attractive then 8th.

Re: Take a Deep Breath

That's the thing that looks to be the sticking point for us. It seems more like Munchkin then a war game when you add in stuff like that. That kind of humor could fit in some places but it seems like it's just been randomly applied to different factions without rhyme or reason.
