Warhammer The Old World Announced

A couple years ago, Age of Sigmar totally redid the world of fantasy Warhammer. Well, now, we're getting some nostalgia back again as Warhammer: The Old World has been announced. Details are still thin on the ground, but it's definitely going to be something to pay attention to going forward.

From the website:

You’ll never believe what we’re working on. The Studio had to tell us twice.

Yeah. For really reals.

In the deepest dungeons of the Warhammer Studio, the counsel of the wise have convened, ancient forges have been re-lit and work has already begun. So far… we’ve made the logo. 

Next up, everything else. 

You get the idea – this is a long way off. Years. More than two. Like three or more. Definitely not soon.

Obviously, this is really exciting news for all of us, and just like with Sisters of Battle, we’ll keep you updated with more news as the project unfolds.

...yeah, this was inevitable. Their entire digital library consists of Old World stuff. They've got decades of Old World lore. Now they're going back and rummaging through the dumpster? "Whoops, probably shouldn't have thrown those bits out so soon." Sigh. I suppose it's the new rules wrapped around the old lore. If it doesn't do well, they'll have plenty of excuses for it. Just give me my Sisters of Battle and we'll call it even. :(

Good, I did not like the Age of Sigmar line.

So is this going to be a revival of the old Realm of Chaos books etc? Has GW finally seen the 'Oldhammer' love that's out there and decided to cash in? I'm intrigued.
