I think it just means that they will sell square bases again on their webstore. If that's the case, then it's a good new for people needing square bases for whatever reason.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

So they’re going to bring back fantasy as a Horus Heresy style lead in for AoS. Jeez.

(I'm actually guessing/hoping the need for that will be obviated by War of the Ring style tray adapters)

I hope its bringing back a proper squares based game so that the other side of the fence that GW has alienated has something that they can enjoy.

Because as a business... I would think they want to maximize their target audience as much as possible. And AOS...well... AOS is night and day from what people that got into this for rank and flank want.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Killed it off due to dwindling sales, removed half the models for it from sale.... thing bring it back as a specialist game at undoubtedly higher prices that no one will want to pay?

Brilliant.

Well they killed the sales themselves when they pulled resources from making fb stuff into making aos when fb was still top3 miniature game selling. When kits sell almost all lifetime sales in few months and you don'' release new kits sales obviously die up.

Fb dying was gw deciding to kill it because to kirby anything that didn't sell space marine level was failure

Huh, that could be interesting -- a possible vehicle for "primarch" miniatures for the likes of Sigmar, Grimnir, Teclis, etc. Maybe even some of the godbeasts.

Oh man, I didn't even think to get preemptively annoyed about this -- I was just going to wait until 3pm like a fool!

I’m going to say this is probably going to flesh out the age of myth, rather than be a fantasy re-do.

I don't mind the lore and background of AOS. I just want a game that isn't AOS lol. I don't like AOS's rules at all, and would love a warmaster style or whfb style game, set in the age of myth would be great.

If they bring back fantasy, they should set it during the War of the Beard. It would let them focus on a smaller variety of armies, and flesh out the setting in much the same way the Horus heresy has.

That's exactly the same for me, auticus - I don't mind it, but there's a reason I always preferred WHFB despite being a scifi guy for almost everything else. I just like the game! I've given AoS, WarCry and Underworlds a try (and played Underworlds quite a bit!), but none of them are similar in gameplay, only setting.

So here's hoping for a rank and flank legacy game with FW at the helm... I'd be so into it!

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I'm the exact opposite - I liked WHFB, but what I loved was the WHF setting.

Honestly I don't know if I trust them to do it justice any more, so I kinda hope it is an Age of Myth thing and they leave WHF to the fans.

Considering how much Fantasy stuff I still have and the fact that I would never, ever put any of it on a round base, this does have me intrigued.

9th age exists, it compounds the worst faults of WFB 8th ed, so sounds perfect for WFB fans.

Wow what's going on? I can't watch the youtube vid at work but is WHFB back?

We don’t know 100%, but the tease vid is referencing a Heresy era for AoS etc....and square bases. In a knowing way.

looking on the official age of sigmar website, the age of myth seems out of place for a wargame, perhapse the end as the age of myth became the age of chaos

This is some exciting stuff. I'm happily playing KoW and have no interest in rulesets designed by mordern GW, but it's still interesting to see where this might go!

Thanks MDG!
I think they would be a little crazy not to capitalise on the popularity of The Old World due to the TW game, but I'll keep an eye on the news.

Seriously, KoW is a better game than anything GW ever was, is, or will be able to produce. Getting excited over a hypothetical square base ruleset from GW for the sole reason that it's from GW is pure Stockholm syndrome and the reason they can get away with selling pure gak.
