    Default Age of Sigmar

    c'mon its almost time and still no talk about the new whfb stuff!


    obviously more of a skirmish game than the previous whfb but hey ho i dont know anything about rules n stuff. this is more appealing to me although i fancy a real big battle id never paint up a whole army, but a fewer amount of minis is actually a possibility.

    the new models seems... well, not bad models me think but with the rumors of heavy foot knight i was hoping for the medieval kind of knights, instead i got the sf kind. kind of down beating actually. Chaos (khorne) dudes looks pretty cool though!







    more spoilers to find with a quick google search.

    so, what ya folks think? "oh my gaaaaaaaaaaaaawd round bases end of whfb boooo ill kill myself slowly - cut cut"

    Looks kinda good to me. Still not getting into Warhammer, but it tempted me a little. I see that GW has taken a lot of pointers from their compeditors with unit cards and short, free rules.

    Colour me excited. I am getting the set ordeed on saturday as it will be good to learn, and taking leaf out of some other competitors with GW's tech level and plastic quality i will be happy.

    Also, no invalidating of old models

    Meh. I was expecting something more I guess. The blood angels, oh i mean, the warriors of sigmar look ok. The guy on the lizard looks pretty good. The chaos guys look pretty cool too.

    Rumors say the rules are only 4 pages. If thats true I'm wondering how all the other armies are going to fit. Anyone know the retail cost?

    Rumor also that you can use round or square bases.

    mostly mehh for me. The only figure I'd like to paint on the sigmar side is one of the winged things. I couldn't have a good look at the chaos side, but so far 0.

    Forgot, that it works again.

    I assume that these will be the core rules, while troops and the like will come separately, just like CMoN has done for Dark Age and Wrath of Kings (a myriad of other companies has done similar things).

    I probably will not buy it like the fanboy I used to be. But I would like to see how it works.

    The IP was of more interest than any edition of WFB. Was more into the rpg, novels, and painting the toy soldiers for the joy of slapping paint in a nice mini. Sad to see the IP mullared and the minis gone in in this direction.

    A conflicted IP, sometimes dark or low fantasy, sometimes high fantasy - the RPG looking up at the world from a gutter point of view while the battle game looked down upon the best of the best. At least neither impacted the other. Hard to imagine a 4th edition of the RPG getting rolled out. Doesn't sound like there's room for stories about Olaf the rat catcher anymore.

    WFB was a peculiar beast in scale too. A few dozen mooks, a wizard and a hero on a flying monster didn't feel like an army (like say, epic/warmaster), but was too big for more detailed skirmish rules (mordheim/necromunda).
    There's some that say because how sales where never as good as for 40k, trotting out just another version would be uninspired thinking. All this is bit much though, a grenade rather than a tweak. Would have preferred to see each new edition advance the timeline about five years, with blurb describing the rise and decline of certain factions and characters, changing the line up of army lists. This more explosive shake up is purportedly due to GW's close attention to wanting to shake a legal stick at other companies, eradicating factions they couldn't easily argue "but judge, look, they're copying us". Should prove an amusing day in court when the amount of spiky bits and skulls are brought up as possible IP infringement.

    Depending on the quality of the rules they may deserve praise. Short rules, available for free. Course, if they're crap rules then that means little.
    GW's minis have for some time seemed like a cheap parody of itself. Now they look like a homage to companies that have echoed GW's imagery.
    The paint job isn't helping. That bronze. If they'd gone with steel it would have least have carried the late medaeval vibe. Clearly haven't reverted to a bronze age, so bronze coloured armour is evoking something weird.

    You'll have to excuse the harshness. Thirty years of being into this IP and seeing it mishandled this badly is rather irritating. Like Kanye West's Bohemian Rhapsody cover, rendered in plastic.

    That is correct.
    The odds of succesfully finishing this miniature is 3720:1
