They told me i was crazy, that i could not win with an army list like that. 2000 points later i found out that they were right

This is both huge and not so huge news if only because its 2 to 3 years off. That said GW generally doesn't like to present info like that unless they are committed to it. This also bodes well for them doing some of the alpha testing of releases for rules like they did for Sisters of Battle.

It will be interesting to see how they manage this. I wonder if they might move to a different scale, maybe 15mm and half all measurements? Maybe re-release old metal models in a Reaper Bones-type material? Whatever they do, I'm sure there will be lots of people angry that their favorite edition wasnt selected as the basis for the new system.

They don't say fantasy is coming back, they're saying they're working on something set in the old word and that it takes at least 3 years before its done

2 to 3 years suggests brand new models rather than re-releasing the old sculpts. Which isn't a bad thing considering that many of the models that were around at the end of the Old World were old sculpts barring a handful of armies that got something new. Plus a good few of those very last months releases were more AoS vibe than Old World (things like gods and such).


The hint of something from the realm of light (Light Aelves?!) and Gargantuan is also very encouraging for AoS; though I'm guessing we are looking a good many months before those hints appear. Still shaping up 2020 to be a great year for AoS if they get a new army; something big and also will (it seems from some leaks) get all three remaining Battleomes released by March

Great, it's a Studio project, so it'll actually drain at least some resources from AoS development (I've no doubt 40k will be left alone) all for the sake of a project that failed once already and some nostalgia money from boomers.

What ? That probably the best news From GW since the end times
WFB never failed, GW stopped it. Now they are finally undoing their mistake. It took time for them to put pride away and to come back to this but eventually everyone sees the truth, including GW.
Greatest news !

The fact that people who express sentiments like that will be annoyed by them diverting resources from AoS is actually the best thing about this announcement.

Just wait until we're back in stores and clubs, with our actively supported game, luring away new players with superior not-Egypt and Proper Dwarfs rather than silly He-Man Bone Bois and Fyretoddlers

Ugh. Reminds me of the WoW Classic fights. 'Why is it based on patch 1.12 and not patch 1.115768?' Paladins lost 0.01% DPS in that change!

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

And sentiments like yours make me think you should be applying the toddler moniker to yourself. Thrown toys and prams and all that.

Wake me up in half a decade when we know what scale this is, if the setting is made interesting and if it's plastic or forge world only. Then it may be worth looking at.

The hint for something big coming from the realm of light being Light Aelves was my thought as well. If so, my poor wallet just got wrecked by Sylvaneth, only just barely managed to escape Ossiarchs (my brother got them so I am enjoying them through him), is about to further get demolished by Chaos, and potentially soon Light Aelves...

Well, that's good. Biggest mistake of AoS was blowing up the old world for it instead of just making it an addition. Hopefully that will be rectified.

Giants and Hysh? Probably not related (not that I care either way), and people were certainly expecting light elves, but was there any demand for giants? Almost seems to me like they're porting Knight armies to Fantasy with a small model count, all giant army, That's the worst case scenario anyway, but I guess all (or mostly) monster armies are a thing already so whatever.

I won't complain if we get a nice giant model out of it, though.

This is excellent news and happy for those WHFB players who have felt abandoned with AoS. Free cities seemed to perk up spirits but this is something, even if years away.

I'll just move on, like I did with other games, when the time comes. I'm not the one that was first treated to a nice nurgle banquet by GW with End Times and then blowing up the old world, only to spend 4 years not getting over it, and now eagerly jumping back into the same bed with the same company because they decided your money is good again.

I eagerly await the bit where all the "nyeeeh, boomer, nyeeeh, ded gaem" people move on. Could that be soon? It'd be real nice if it was soon.

And you know, it usually helps when you're about to try snarking someone to do a quick wee check first to see if you're about to make a massive wobbly boob of yourself when you put words in their mouth - GW are going to have to woo me like we're in a late 90's romantic comedy if they expect to get money out of me, I learned the lesson of the End Times/AoS debacle well, and these days I have 3D printers.

If the rules are made to be able to put your AoS armies in movement traits and play with them in both sistems like they did with War of the Ring Ill be all over it.
I love AoS, bot setting and game, but I also love Fantasy even more. Yeah Im one of those strange people that likes both games.
Also, new models are always cool.

They want some of that sweet cash from theTotal War: Warhammer fan base, many of whom won't know or care about the Old World being blown up, and AOS.

I think the Total War game has helped, but I'd wager the vast majority of its fanbase won't buy Warhammer models. Some willl and some won't; many who will likely already bought into AoS itself.

The Giant hint is the really interesting thing for me as its fairly unexpected. Fingers crossed GW will have something to show off at the next preview.
