Om de miniatures creativiteit toch even te scheiden van het gameplay deel, een nieuw topic!
Ik zat (na lange tijd) weer eens wat rond te lezen en het is zo'n spannende/onzekere/nieuwe tijd tegenwoordig, er lijkt van alles te gebeuren te staan!

Iig een eerste quote die me al snel opviel:
http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/in ... #msg941369
Quote:
The rumors seem to be closing in around multiple sources stating the new 9th edition will take place in three different time periods: Pre-apocalyptic world (PAW), END of Times (EOT), and post-apocalyptic word (POAW). The PAW will feel like current 8th edition game play with a few rules adjustments. EOT is a Mondo ballz to the wall, bring everything and the kitchen sink to battle, with crazy magic . The POAW game will be a skirmish game set in city ruins etc. However, like one player pointed out (sorry forgot your name) how can we play in a city in ruins if the world has ended? IMO I think civilization as we know it, ended not the world; however, I have not read the EOT Archon book yet.
The New Box Set (rumor)
1- New rules for the three gaming styles (or just the skirmish game)
2- A force of light, rumors are saying human (empire) troops and knights, they are also saying an elite group of super humans (don’t like this on haha) also there might be a unit of dwarfs, and elves
3- The force of darkness or evil (whatever) is a mixed of chaos or Orcs not sure
There also seems to be rumors that in the POAW world certain factions or armies will no longer be around, however, they are playable but will not receive any more support from GW ( lizardmen, Bretonnian, Chaos Dwarfs ( FW army anyway) I cried a tear for the sons of Bretonnia.

So there what we know right now ….if I forgot anything please add to this discussion

Dat klonk me eigenlijk al best interessant dat je verschillende speltypes met WHFB kunt spelen (en waarom ze dat niet eerder hebben gedaan!).
Ik hoop natuurlijk dan ook dat het klassieke spel ook nog overleefd, want daar ligt m'n hart toch.

All WFB rulebook, army books, campaign books, starte kit, and WFB specific counters and movement trays have been taken off shelves, and a flyer/poster thing put in place. And they were handing out invitation cards for the 11th July launch party.

Ok so I just spoke with our GW guy for about a half an hour about Age of Sigmar. Here are the details:


+All the rules are free, core, unit specific, everything- The core rules are very simple but the complexity comes with each unit getting its own individual "Warscroll." The warscrolls will detail what each unit can do, its stats, etc. All the warscrolls and the core rules will be made available for free download starting on July 4th.


+The game can be played with all existing models in the warhammer fantasy range. There is no strict force organization chart. You could make an unbound army but there are benefits for taking units of the same faction. There is increased synergy and interplay between units of the same faction (Chaos, Elves, etc).


+ There is a lot more synergy in general in the game. The Khorne banner guy you see in the pictures has the ability to plant his banner in the ground and create a warp rift where every Khorne unit within 12 inches of the banner gets all sorts of nasty benefits.


+The starter box is 100 bucks after discount at TJs. It comes with 47 new models, 96 page Age of Sigmar Book, dice, measuring sticks etc. It comes with two armies Warriors of Khorne and a new army (Stormcast Eternals). He said the pictures floating around don't really do them justice and that they were the best quality plasics he has ever seen (he got the chance to construct, paint, and play with them last week). That sounds like a sweet week at work! smile emoticon


+The Stormcast Eternals are warriors of the warhammer world that Sigmar saved before the destruction of the mortal realm. They are then reincarnated as demigods keeping some of their previous personality. Every time they die, he resurrects them and they lose a bit of their individuality of their first life. This will explain how we will see heroes and villains that were important figures in the Warhammer World before hand. Apparently the guy riding the drake is one of the previous characters but his identify isn't revealed yet.


+There will be a bunch of new armies coming from the 9 realms of the game world. Some of the realms are familiar (Death, Beasts, Chaos, Heavens, etc). Each realm will have familiar armies coming from it, as well as new ones (like the Stormcast Eternals). I am guessing my beloved Greenskins are in the Beasts realm!


+The white dwarf next week comes with a new Stormcast Eternal Mini.


+The game while having skirmish elements is not just a skirmish game. Large scale battles are completely doable and actually will have a lot more interplay and intricacies due to the layers of synergy with the individual warscrolls for all the units.


+Bases don't matter. Measuring is done model to model (center mass I imagine). Bases are purely for aesthetics.


+He made a comparison to X-Wing where the core rules are simple and fun but the unit specific rules are where the game really comes to life.


+Premeasuring is still alive and well.


+There are fluffy faction specific rules that make armies play how you would imagine. He used an example of how Khorne units have the ability to take a death blow. When a khorne model dies they can get a last gasp strike as they fall.


+He said the game plays faster than WHFB, is simple at its core, but complex once you start throwing in all the unit specific rules. He said it would be much easier for new players to get into the hobby and the themed armies have really cool things up their sleeves.
All in all I am really excited. Putting all the rules out there for free, making any regiment box in effect a starter box, and keeping large scale battles relevant are smart moves. I cannot wait. We will be having some Age of Sigmar stuff going on in the run up to the Launch Party. More details to follow! Everyone will be able to start playing AoS on the fourth of july without spending a penny.

Er is een demo in mijn local friendly gaming shop (LFGS) aankomende zaterdag.. maar ja, Star Wars hè?
Ik ga de week erop wel even koekeloeren, morgen staat er wellicht ook iets over op de GW site bij de Daily White Dwarf optie.

Wth?!

Let me give you an idea of the scale of changes regarding the rules for our beloved Empire:

One of the rules of Kurt Helborg:

Pride of the Reiksguard: Helborg's skill is as legendary as his moustache is magnificent. You can re-roll any failed hit rolls when attacking with the Runefang so long as you have a bigger and more impressive moustache than your opponent.

The Mad Count: Marius Leitdorf is an exceptional swordsman, even if he is totally insane. If, during your hero phase, you pretend to ride an imaginary horse, you can re-roll failed hit rolls for the Averland Runefang until your next hero phase. If you actually talk to your imaginary horse you can re-roll failed wound rolls as well.

If you don't believe me, check out the rules.

Ik zag die van Leitdorf voorbij komen op Twitter, Vampire Counts is overigens ook niet gespaard. ;D

Quote:
one Bat Short of a Belfry: Konrad is a
violent lunatic, and his temper does little
to help his stretched sanity. If, during
your hero phase, you talk to Konrad von
Carstein, you can re-roll all hit rolls of
1 for him until your next hero phase. If
Konrad von Carstein talks back to you,
re-roll all failed hit rolls instead.


Wordt een interessant potje volgende keer. XD

Ik weet niet of er nu meerdere 'keep 8th edition' alive initiatieven zijn, maar dit is er een van:
Quote:
I am playing a little AoS. It's ok. Not warhammer but ok. It appears that the majority of folks here are still interested in EE and W-E appears to be staying as-is. This is a great community, I've been here for maybe 11 years and I love it here. For people who want to dive deeper into EE stuff, please join us over at EEFL.freeforums.net.

Here's what's going on right now at EEFL:

-the first draft of the new updated Bretonnian army list

-rules development for using the new Stormcast Elementals (Sigmarines) in EE battles

-painting and hobby stuff

-EE list review



I would like to add that our rules development and administration is being led by my good friend Kevin Coleman. He wouldn't want me to brag about him but he has written extensively for white dwarf and the citadel journal, wrote the Indy GT army books for dwarves of chaos and most recently wrote Warhammer: Grom (an all-Goblinoid army book). He was also one of the last official play testers before GW phased out the program.

This is all to say that Mr. Coleman is very passionate about warhammer fantasy and has a great track record of rules development.


Just to be clear, here is something that the EEFL community will NOT be doing. We will NOT be changing the existing EE rules. While some players see this as an opportunity to "fix" warhammer, and we respect their angle,new plan to play EE AS IS. Simply put,mew like the rules and don't want to make a mess by tinkering with them. We do feel, however, that change can happen through the eventual "fixing" of the army books. Some armies, of course, haven't gotten much live from GW in the last decade or so. Since WE not own warhammer fantasy, we can use our skills to revise the armies.

Some are interested in moving on to AoS and that's fine. It is not warhammer but people can still find entertainment in playing it. If you, like us at EEFL, plan (at this point) to be playing warhammer fantasy for the rest of your life, we would like you to join in iur discussions and show us your pics. Play test with us, meet up with us for EE events. Warhammer belongs to is now, let's enjoy this new age together.

Erg interessante artikel uit januari 2014 over een stukje Warhammer Fantasy (en White Dwarf) geschiedenis.

Nice quote:
Quote:
I am sure that you are like me when I say that I miss the wall to wall racks of blister packs. You used to walk into the gaming shops back in the 1980s and be confronted by an enormity of lead. Even a solid hour's reflection over those blister packs and their contents would leave fresh discoveries still to be made. Different variants of models, miniatures you have never seen before and sometimes even something mind blasting in its originality, to you anyway, in the bargain box - a preslotta most likely! What is eBay today but our wall of blister packs? Our pleasurable hours cruising the internet site for models is merely a reflection of those days of youth at the blister pack wall, our heads full of dreams and our imaginations fired by the creativity on display.

Tabletop game maker Games Workshop has announced that the world of its long-running Warhammer Fantasy Battles game is coming to an end, to be replaced by a new setting. With its departure, we have to say goodbye to some over-the-top heroes and villains that made Warhammer so great—and here’s nine of the best.

heh

Het eindigt zowaar positief:
Quote:
It was not expected, we couldn't have known, since the resignation of supreme leader Tom Kirby there has started to appear a pattern, sporadic reports of real discounts at Forgeworld and Black Library, and then, in the last days of 2015 it has been revealed that major changes are coming, the sudden resurrection of specialist games, Games Workshop releasing starter sets with real saving, all around the internet neckbeards are discussing and watching, wondering what's going on, perhaps the new guy in charge has decided is time to take some contingencies for the inevitable demise of tabletop gaming with the ever increasing development in 3D printing and the emergence of new alternatives. It seems like the boxes are a replacement for the old Battleforce packs, and while you don't get as many units as the old box, they are cheaper and usually come with a good mix of units to start a small army.

And now, there's an official (as in hosted and ran by the almighty GeeDubs themselves) Blood Bowl tournament going on at Warhammer World on May 21st. Truly these are strange times. GW also appears to be preparing to starting selling their product in toy stores (Toys-R-Us Etc.) as well as producing various Warhammer Merchandise such as pillows and journals (For Some Reason). Also now they've made a 40k starter set with simplified rules and all the paint you need to assemble the models. Clearly the sky is falling. (Also they've started making conversion tutorials and stuff, for some reason).
