Re: Why is Imrik missing?

Yeah, they went through all that trouble making the really nice elf on dragon kit and didn't give him new stats to go with it. He'd have been easy to build just with what was on the existing sprues too. Heck I think he's in some of the pictures they used in the 8th edition High Elf codex to boot. Wo...

Re: Oldhammer, Middlehammer & Newhammer

Any news on this lately? Rumors still have it happening sometime in 2023 so there hasn't been a lot of news about it lately which is understandable given how hard they're pushing the new Horus Heresy edition. Wargamer.com had a running article if you haven't seen everything so far: https://www.warg...

Re: Oldhammer, Middlehammer & Newhammer

I wouldn't put Age of Sigmar in there. Not that I presently have any problems with it. Third edition has been a ton of fun to play with my friends but it's a completely different type of game with completely different lore and mechanics. It's not *completely* disconnected but so distantly removed it...

Re: Path to Glory

What is it that makes 3rd edition different from the two before it? Well there's a fair amount of changes between the second and third editions. Second was still an actual game as opposed to that farce of first edition but third is even more so. Also the newer GW style of actually paying some atten...

Path to Glory

Has anyone been doing any of the new Path to Glory narrative campaigns for 3rd edition? We've been having a fair amount of fun with it. Feels like 3rd edition is a lot more of a game my circle can enjoy and we've built up a lot of forces. We're kind of using it as just a framework to just play games...

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: 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.

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 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.
