Warhammer Fantasy


It's early Sunday morning, and that means packing things up here in the room. It's the final day of Adepticon. If you've been here, I hope you've had a good time. If you've not been here, I hope the photos have helped you live vicariously through my lens. To help with that, here's some more galleries of events from the show.

And stay tuned this afternoon for the results from the Crystal Brush awards.

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?

Well, we're getting close to the new version of Warhammer Fantasy Battles from Games Workshop. There's been lots of rumors and half-heard things being passed along for quite a while. Well, you know that we here at TGN don't deal in rumors. That's a disservice to you, the readers. These, however, aren't so much rumors anymore. It does look like Warhammer is getting more of a reboot than anyone might've expected.

You can now get the Warhammer App for your Android devices (for those of you that don't have Apple products). The App is free to download and has some pretty neat features if you're wanting to be kept up-to-date on all things GW.

Forge World will be one of the many vendors headed to Salute, the UK's premier gaming convention. They want to make sure that if you want to buy something from them that they'll have it on hand (because nobody likes going away disappointed and empty-handed). So to make sure they have what you want, they're taking pre-orders for the next week. Just tell them what you want and they'll bring it with them to pick up at the show.

Games Workshop adds to their pre-orders with some new stuff. For those following along with the Warhammer Fantasy releases, they have their Khorne Daemonkin book in various forms, from electronic to deluxe edition. To get your figures to and from the table safely, they've also got 3 new carrying cases.

Games Workshop added a new hero to their pre-order page for Warhammer. Well, anti-hero is probably more like it, unless you think that the slaughter of your enemies in the name of your insatiable god makes you a hero. It's all about perspective, I guess. Anyway, I'm getting off track. You can order Skarr Bloodwrath now.

Games Workshop added a bunch of new Skaven to their pre-order page, including new Stormfiends, a new Grey Seer, a Skaven Warlord, and some Warlock Engineers.
No extra word on bubble-universes, though.

Games Workshop's rumor mill is running hot and heavy with speculation about the upcoming 9th edition. Much of it revolves around the losing of certain factions as well as the creation of new ones (sounds like there might be a "Space-Marine-Esque" one coming). Also, rumor has it that the world, itself, is exploding. Gone is the old map we've known for so long. Instead, each portion will be its own "bubble universe" that occasionally bash together and create a place where various factions can battle.

What're your thoughts? I know these are rumors still, but they're supposedly from fairly reliable sources.

Games Workshop starts off this new year with a new pre-order for all your Warhammer Fantasy players. This one's the new Verminlord.
It's... $90. That's... a lot.
It's a pretty nice looking model, though, and does come with accessories.
But... $90.
I know I try and keep the editorializing to a general minimum, but ... wow.

The user Shala GW Tilea is proving to be a really good person, as it provided more pictures that show the enormity of bitz included in the kit of the King of Contagion, but not only, because there are also pictures of the new character Gutrot Spume . In the rules, have the option to be put on War Altar, in fact, you can see it with this option in the first image.

From the post:

All across the face of the Old World the dead are uneasy in their graves and the winds of Shyish gust wildly. Usirian, lord of the Nehekaran underworld is dead and taking his place is the Demi-god Nagash, first Necromancer, the dread lord of Nagashizzar, the enemy of life itself and potentially the savior of the Warhammer Fantasy world. The world is ending and every single race, every faction, has been called to arms for the last great war. The End Times are upon us.
