As you can see it's pretty comprehensive buit there are several omissions. There are supposed to be variant lists and some others which will be downloadable too, total is 140 odd.

He says he's waiting on a copy from ForgeWorld for 'proof reading' which is enough to make me doubt the whole thing

But we'll see, If your one of the 4 people bothered about WAB this is exciting stuff.......hopefully see it before Xmas?

The ForgeWorld editing process has been known to take years. I would not get too excited about this list from Martin.

With the recent 50% off sale at Warhammer Historicals - I fully expect the department to be closed before this supplement is released.

We'll see, but I expect they're flogging off the book as they're are about to be replaced. Partially by AoA which has more lists than the it's predacessor and MG has talked about a lot of other supplements they have had for ages taking no action with them.

+100 army lists? In one book? Even Field of Glory is not that big.

And woe to those who use japanese armies in the current book

I think the caps are still relevant!

MG actually said that Bushi will be normal troops in his list as opposed to (admittedly admitted) Jervis fangasm...

I have a field that the reason it's 100+ list because this will be there last one for a very long time if not perm as they said a while ago that they wanted too shut down the WAB dept due too lack of overall sales but WAB 2.0 was actually a huge seller so who knows I guess in the end. I am excited as I play WAB at Adepticon and I can't wait too see the lists for Macedonians!

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!
