I for one hope they go the War of the Ring route, in terms of basing and rules because that was a truly excellent and severely underrated system.

I started in 5th and I’m 34. Pretty sure that means I have one foot in the grave at this point. I miss 6th edition WHFB. If the new thing is something close to that, I’ll be happy.

Now, more importantly...any rumors/news on the upcoming Everchosen stuff?? I’m REALLY looking forward to that!

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Apologies if I sound like a snide tosspot here, but why do peeps feel this is a FW effort?

Wording in the article is;

Warhammer Community announcement wrote: The Old World is to Warhammer Age of Sigmar, as the Horus Heresy is to Warhammer 40,000. The bedrock of lore from which mortals rose to godhood and legends were forged. And like the Horus Heresy, seeing those mythic heroes in action has an undeniable appeal, as does re-creating the glorious armies of a previous epoch – an exciting proposition for hobbyists and gamers alike. And now, we have a dedicated team in the Warhammer Studio beginning the work of bringing all that awesome back to the tabletop.


Sounds to me like it’s a main studio product. Unless I’m missing something, which can never be ruled out.

Probably because traditionally side projects and the Horus Herasy (which its been compared too) come from Forgeworld. Also there's a lot of general chatter so in that those who forget or who didn't read all the info make mistakes and then self perpetuate.

Honestly the line between GW and FW has become increasingly blurry as to what it actually "means" for us gamers.

Yeah just people assuming it can’t be anything else, based on nothing really.

Though as mentioned, with the blurred lines, yeah it’s harder to distinguish these days..

I mean, it’s mainly based on Tony Cottrell (head of Forge World) being in the video, which is hardly nothing.

Or maybe with Horus Heresy reaching Terra (in with it the end of the campaign) he needs a new main project for the studio

book 9 should release beginning of 2020 and there are at 4 more arcs planned (at least 5 books as I guess the Solar War will have more than one)

1 to 2 books a year and the HH will be done in about 3-4 years

so now is the time to start development of the upcoming new project, specially if GW/FW want to have plastic starter boxes, to have the stuff ready when HH ends

Interesting that the formorians were initially enslaved by the human/elves/dwarves and not chaos.

Though for something described as 'an island' and 'a fortress,' Allpoints/Eightpoints sounds much bigger than that, with multiple cities and nations.

Is there a map somewhere?

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

None that I know off, I imagine it to be something along the lines of the size of Ireland maybe, given the note on multiple cities and nations, while the other realms would be on the level of continents if not entire worlds themselves.

There's a bit of a map of one part in the Warcry book. It's far bigger then Ireland.

The Realms are each bigger than the Earth we live upon (bigger than the Old World); so even a whole continent would easily fit inside the eightpoints

It seems more like each realm is the size of the old world on it's own, IMO. As for Eightpoints that still leaves tons of room for it to be a tiny island by comparison yet large enough to have multiple kingdoms within it.

Except they can drag HH for a decade more if they want, there is still the Scouring which was longer than HH itself (and we know it will be touched in at least some way as two of the HH books by FW already had campaigns from it).

The Mortal Realms are vast - they have dozens or even hundreds of continents.

From the maps we have, it seems like the continents are smaller than those we have IRL, considerably so. The structure of land and water masses is completely different, no surprise given it isn't driven by plate tectonics. Notably there is much more land in the land:water ratio.

Comparing the Old World map, which is about the size of the RL world
Spoiler:



which is about the same size as this:


which is just a small spot within a Realm




So the Old World could just be another small spot within a known Realm and it would be no problem at all

Unless there are some measurements I missed we have no definite numbers on how big those each are. What if the great parch map is only the size of Ulthuan? The scale changes entirely.

I don't think you missed anything. GW seems to have gone out of their way to not introduce tangible measurements (of both space and time) in Age of Sigmar.

Probably to make it appear more mythical and avoid continuity issues.

On the other had, those are mountains marked on the Parch map and, while I doubt individual peaks are ‘accurately’ represented, they do help figure out a rough scale – unless they are being deliberately contrary of course.
That basically makes the Parch a minimum of about three times the size of Ulthuan and could be up to twenty times. Either way, it does make Aqshy vastly larger than the Old World, by an order of magnitude at least.
