The General's Handbook is meant to be great value though. I think the podcasts mentioned it would be £15?

That gets you stacks of cool stuff - not just matched play but multiple campaign systems for narrative play and game modes for open play too.

Bye bye Dakkadakka, happy hobbying! I really enjoyed my time on here. Opinions were always my own :-)

I know you're desperate for points Kan, but you might want to consider branching out and trying other game styles from time to time.

So this turned up on 4chan. Not sure what to make of it, but it is half the price of buying the models individually.

Then some people probably won't buy it, which goes without saying. But there really is no reason to be such a sour sally.

excited for the book though. Points is nice but I wonder what else will be in there?

See, this actually makes me even sadder, because I would have loved a 40K-ish game(which this new version of AoS seems to be) in the WHF setting, but the months of "points and people who like them are the dumz" rhetoric and the way GW tossed aside WHF as an IP then took the piss out of its fans as a farewell has totally soured things.

I keep having ideas for cool little WHF forces you can do in a skirmish system that just aren't viable in a block-movement game, and then I remember that doing them would require dealing with the new setting(because I don't know anyone who both plays AoS and prefers WHF) and that pathetic "har har, mental health is a perfect subject for ridicule in a social setting!" rule and it just strangles all my enthusiasm.


Who cares about the "official" setting? I'm quite happy to ignore it, and there's no reason you couldn't do the same. Your models are your own, as is their background and your own "head canon". I know you're overly concerned about what the "official rules" and so forth say, but there's no need to concern yourself with it if you dislike it, even if you were to play in a GW store. Perhaps see if there's a local club in your vicinity where you can play some informal friendly games using the upcoming, pointed AoS skirmish rules within the WHFB setting.



I give exactly zero gaks about what the "official rules" say, except the bits that encourage folk to shout abuse at each other and take the piss out of people with mental health problems. Not because I can't ignore them, but because either someone at GWHQ with grotesquely poor taste actually though they were being funny, or because they were a deliberate "up yours, buy the new stuff" to fans of WHF under the pretense of doing us a favour. Either way, it doesn't provoke any great desire to engage with the system.

And, contrary to what some people seem to assume, I'm not actually a drooling moron "I don't know anyone who'd play AoS who's also a WHF setting fan" was inclusive of everyone I've spoken to at local clubs. Largely because there's not many people playing AoS at local clubs, but still.

Been that way ever since ya joined the thread mate.
The discussion part of news and rumours applies to the topics at hand.
Discussion doesn't mean come into the thread and piss and moan about how AoS isn't WFB anymore, which is all you do either blatantly or in a roundabout fashion. If you want to have a 'discussion' in this thread, maybe try sticking to the topic at hand, which is news and rumours concerning Age of Sigmar.

Awesomeness. I have 1 of those 4 mini's, so it'll be nice to get the rest, and use the extra for conversion fodder.

The owner of our local GW shop was already bragging about how amazing this book was (he saw it at it's presentation at HQ).

According to him, the new direction GW wants to go is: make it cheap if it's "mandatory" apparently. We'll see in the future I guess.

Oh man that Gorechosen looks like it has some promise as a smaller board game. Definitely looking forward to trying that out.

This would be awesome if it had the other Slaughter Priest, not the same one that the Silver Tower expansion has... but picture looks like the one with the two-handed axe.

Thats a shame:( I thought the whole thing with AOS was the free rules...

Will stick with 8th & 9th, might try KoW too.

The core rules and all the model rules are still free. You don't have to use the new rules if you just want to play like you can now. And £15 is pretty reasonable for 3 different ways to play.

What's the point of summoning and characters who summon when the cost is the same as cost of fielding?

Do people in 40k ask why 'keep units in reserve to Deep strike in'?


Not the same. Not only I have to pay for, let's say, a necromancer but I also have to protect him or I loose the "reserve". Isn't summoning also limited in range in AoS?

I don't play AoS mind you, might be bs from me but it sounds limited, situational etc given the unchanged point cost.

Not to mention this is essentialy 3 rule sets, a couple of campaign supplements and points for all armies (even ones that haven't come out yet.)

2000 points for a medium sized game, similar to 100 SCGT pools, 20 Clash Pools or errr 2000 points from 8th :-)

Buys GW products, complains about 15 pounds or $30 Canadian. Mmmmm. Can't tell if serious or not.

Agies Grimm:The "Learn to play, bro" mentality is mostly just a way for someone to try to shame you by implying that their metaphorical nerd-wiener is bigger than yours. Which, ironically, I think nerds do even more vehemently than jocks.

Everything is made up and the points don't matter. 40K or Who's Line is it Anyway?
