Personally, I think 8th edition is the best WaFaBa's been for almost a decade. 6th was annoying at best, and 7th was better, but 8th really fixed a lot of what was wrong.

Sure I still hate 'wheeling', and sort of wish it was replaced with just 'moving the entire unit block like a HUGE skirmisher'. But the game is built on this mechanic, and really utilizes it well, and to change it would change the entire game.

That being said, creating a smaller scale, skirmish type game to bring in some new people would be awesome! Just don't abandon true WaFaBa to do it.


Stop trying to make 'WaFaBa' a thing!!! Not gonna happen!!!

I starting to think that the Bretonnians are the only thing that can save WFB!

Updated Peg Knight dual kit for knight + knight lord... That would be stellar. Plastic Grail/Questing dual kit. New Trebuchet + Cannon(?) dual kit. New plastic lord kit. Maybe something with regards to being big and intimidating or a "Monster in Knight Form" meaning a guy with just astronomical stats being the Lady's Champion?

Oh, and the King being 600+ pts plus and never fielded.

Lol! It was a thing long before I ever heard it. Back when I began playing 40k in the early 90's (back when everyone called it 'War40'), i used to hear it all the time in chat rooms. I always thought it was a cool way of saying it, and just never stopped.

WaFaBa?

WaThaFu?


And it's wonderful that you think 8th is so great. Sadly, WarFanBat ain't doing so well selling side of things, so GeeDuh is releasing a new one to make some quick cash.

To be fair, HBMC, WFB is about due for another edition. 7th ed 40k is much more of a cash grab, imo.

It's not selling so well because of the bleeding start up cost!

This. Absolutely 100% THIS.

I've got roughly 2000pts of Vampire Counts which numbers over 100 models. 70 of those, if I bought them outside of army boxes, would have been in 7 expensive 10 model boxes.

Fantasy is a great game let down by GW making it more expensive to start than saving for a home loan.

The thing is, all they need to do to bring startup costs down is get rid of the percentage system and go back to 7th's unit selections that were more like a Force Organisation Chart.

I'd want to play Fantasy is other people played Fantasy. And I'd love to run a VC army if I didn't have to paint 500 boring skeletons or zambeez.

Also, isn't WaFaBa a pokemon or something?

Never heard either of those, and I've been doing this since the late 80s. 40k and WHFB or "Fantasy Battle". Might be a local thing to your area or certain chat rooms.

Better than before but I see Nagash still gets his hats from clownsRus.com.

Are those spectres/ghosts stuck on him?

Regardless of how stupid WHFB gets, or what happens if they go Unbound, etc, I'll probably pick up that model up. Both for Scholo's old times sake, and since my wife loves Undead for some reason...

Yeah, bring 40k and Fantasy together to a single game, just like Warmachine and Hordes.

If anyone's going to throw down with the Kingdom Death King, it's that guy. I sure hope he's affordable...

I can tell right now he's going to kick the unliving crap out of the 4 or 5 Bones not-Nagashes we'll see in stores this Christmas.
