Seriously, I should your computer overtaxed where you just can’t fit 76MB onto it? They have it in multiple languages and free to download. I haven’t read it yet, but downloaded and printed it out for later. Plus full page Artwork that I’ll print and laminate for the wall.

GW may be terrible with some stuff (Pricing), but this is free .

Am I reading this right as to mean 3rd ed doesn't have real terrain rules and just specific rules for specific GW models?

Picked up the core rules download, pretty cool to have the actual rules for free rather than the truncated version we got for 40k. I'm definitely liking what I am seeing and the new Path for Glory sounds really fun after watching a few reviews.

I'm kind of tempted to expand my Warcry set up with another ravaged lands set to have a table for small AoS games. I have probably 1000 points of Slaves to Darkness just hanging out. Not sure if I will go in on it though, as my LGS generally plays 2k and I have no real interest in playing that large of a game.

This is the weirdest complaint ever. Not also sure how incompetence plays any part in this these are high detail pages that seem intended for user printing.

I am personally super happy that I am getting a high res copy of the rules.

Now I just need GHB and I am a happy camper.

I wonder how Bonereapers are going to interact with the new Battalions? As it is, they gain no benefit at all from fully half of them, as they cannot use command points or abilities. Though they are quite hero heavy army, so could certainly benefit from including the other ones for extra enhancements and the one drop.

Nope. Haven't gotten that far yet. Just that the 'setting up the battlefield' section, states that terrain on the battlefield is represented by terrain from AoS range. Then it says 'These are terrain features, the rest of the battlefield is open ground.'

Also see 17.0 and 28.2.3, which I haven't gotten to yet. The upshot is, old editions used to be vague about terrain because they didn't know what dyi or other terrain players would be using. This edition is only concerned with AoS brand products. Though the battlefield can be a table or even the floor, no reference to mats or whatever yet. Though the 'battle packs' will dictate the size of the battlefield.


Efficiency is the highest virtue.

I have here Gamma Wolves, a 113 page full color print quality pdf with art and full page backgrounds that's 12 megs but okay, GW is never expected to meet the same standards as some dude writing a game in his basement.

You get the rules for free and still complain about "incompetence", have you ever considered playing something else because that is next level hyperbole or trolling.

That maybe 1200dpi is unnecessary in a pdf. A couple of posts up the filesize was used as an excuse for the pdf to not be a direct download so if that's correct, maybe I'm arguing that the slovenliness of their layout guy is causing hassle to literally everyone wanting the pdf.

What are you arguing? That GW is above criticism?

It's big because these are high quality scans - heck they are higher quality than many digital comics! I've just blown the front cover up to 300% and it still looks darn good.



If anything I'm impressed that its only 78mb!

Yep. They specified that in the Facehammer stream. Those dudes are the tourney sort, so they went for that early in the stream.

In the same boat with my Fyreslayers. Losing Lords of the Lodge is a blow, but I'm not despairing until I see all options.

Yeah, you if we can divide it up kn to 'good at the game' mayched play and 'people who whine about tryhards' matched play, that would probably be best.

Pretty much is isnt it (bar the tryhards bit), seems the default for pickups.
Play wise though I am most excited for the new campaign system, sounds like great fun with a like minded group and reminds me of the campaigns of old.

I honestly am surprised by the new AoS narrative play, indeed they feel like improved Crusade mode from 40k. And I totally dig the "conquer territories and build your stronghold" mechanism.

To be fair, it being the "default for pickups" is linked to the nonsensical trash that still gets perpetuated to this day that things like Open Play automatically mean hundreds of Nagashes or Archaons or that Power isn't a "real" balancing system, etc. GW's games have been the only spot where I've seen the "hottakes" from places like 4chan, FLG, or BoLS circulate in the communities in the real world.

One of the few reasons I would like to see GW open up an "official forum" again or start having an easily searchable reference for people via Warhammer Community is that it would be nice to see people get exposed to actual info before memetastic goons get to them.

Play wise though I am most excited for the new campaign system, sounds like great fun with a like minded group and reminds me of the campaigns of old.

I'm torn on Path to Glory personally. I like the concept but I'm concerned about the "territories" bit.

Hopefully the book versions of things will expand it further.
