We'll find out soon enough eh.

Yeah this will be something utterly mundane/a pun of some kind, there's zero chance they're bringing back WHFB.

The GW facebook team already shot that down, tongue in cheek. They said they already offer that and linked to the GW filing tools.

Since GW has been on a tear bringing back specialist games, I would love if this is Warmaster rebooted to the new AOS background.

Because quite frankly AOS is not a game that I can enjoy, but a warmaster style game in the world would be something I'd fork money over for.

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.

Won't be anything major. They'd save a big announcement for an event - like New Year Open Day - rather than slap it down on a random Friday. Mind you, it might be a teaser and 'MORE DETAILS SOON'.

I'd freaking love it because the Warmaster scale would work perfectly with AoS. With 28-32mm you can't really do proper sieges and have the right feeling. You can do them don't get me wrong, but they are more skirmish sieges. Warmaster scale you can certainly do a full castle and battle and everything and it looks better at that scale. That said such a release would be massive for GW. I think this tease is too light in tone for something as major as that.

Warmaster AoS is the kind of thing that gets announced at a major event rather than on the GW website news on a Friday

I'd love AoS Warmaster. Chances of it happening are nil, but it sure would be nice, I still think it was the best ruleset GW ever created.

I don't know that I trust GW to do Warmaster correctly right now. I feel like Middle-Earth went unmolested simple because it avoided the gaze of the number-crunchers... ditto for Bloodbowl, but any really "new" system has come back either unrecognizable, or largely worse.

I dread a new Warmaster (now in 15mm for example, so everyone has to start a new scale), being to its original version, what say Warhammer Quest was to its original game.

I’m eagerly awaiting this while trying not to get my hopes up.


I’d squee over just about anything fantasy that wasn’t AoS-related.

I’d go bankrupt if they decided to some serious MTO runs for things like Brets or Tomb Kings.

If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

Most rumor-sites are just saying it is Apocalypse/Siege Age of Sigmar, akin to the 40k version, but with a token nod toward regimental/ranked movement trays.

Ah, that makes sense re: movement trays and APOC's existence for 40k. I was getting sorta excited it might be Mordheim's return (on round bases), given that came out in 1999 and GeeDub likes money. That or a rerelease of some Oldhammer books ala the WD compendium that just came out.

Holy hell tho, the raging in the KOW FB groups / bizarre declarations of love for WHFB in the AOS FB groups over this post

I'd be very surprised if they wanted to still manufacturer square bases.

What makes it funnier is many of those people in the AoS groups are no doubt the same who kick, scream and sneer that anything to do with WHFB should be purged and gleefully snigger when something from it goes LCTB.

If WHFB did come back in some form, you can guarantee those same GW-White Knights will proclaim it was the greatest thing since sliced bread, and how they 'always loved it and wish it would return in some form'.

Thats because a lot of the gw white knights are die hard gw fans because of the community. The games themselves don't mean as much as the fact that whatever the games are, they know that they have tens of thousands of people playing it with them.

Especially in today's community where it seems everyone has a paid blog, patreon, or twitch stream behind a pay wall they want to milk the rest of the community for.

I can't get 5 seconds into twitter without seeing someone posting about their paid content.

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.

It has to be a Legends-related bait & switch surely.

Right?

If this actually is WHFB-as-Horus Heresy for AoS...I'm more afraid than excited. There are so, so many ways they could do that in a gak way, and only a couple where it would actually be good.

Honestly GeeDub's ubiquity, followed closely by its unrivaled plastic kits, is probably its games' greatest selling point. And a monolith that all emergent games struggle against, on top of having to compete with video games, the eternal boogeyman.

But anyway, guess we'll find out whatever the poop is up with square bases in ~40 minutes!
