Well, it’s the 4th of July and Britain has sent the US a present. That being Games Workshop has posted up the rules for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar on their website, for free, along with all the Warscrolls (I.E. – the unit rules) for all the armies. I’ve mentioned recently how game companies are more and more embracing the “free rules online” method, so you can see how a game works before you buy it. Well, Games Workshop has jumped into that bandwagon. What do you all think?
So, there’d been leaked previews of the rules, but as you know, we don’t deal with leaked rumors, because lord only knows how things could change between that leak, the rumor, and the final product. But now we do have the official final product.
A quick glimpse at some of the changes are:
* Model base doesn’t matter at all. When measuring, you measure to a point (any point at all) on a model.
* No point costs. Take whatever you want on the battlefield.
* No more “adds to 7” system for rules. Now you have a target number you’re trying to meet or beat for attacks, wounds, and armor saves (ok, that armor saves one hasn’t changed).
* If one person has 1/3 more models than their opponent, the one with fewer figures can pick a “sudden death” win condition for the game.
I… have my own opinions on the changes. But what say ye, the readers of TGN?
Good changes? Bad changes? Will this “save” Warhammer?
