Re: Since Closure

I'm the same. I've painted very little. I've joined the Facebook group but it just isn't the same. You can't follow threads very easily and finding old stuff will be much harder. I much prefer a forum. Shame this one is for the most part dead.

Re: Which books should I get?

Thanks, that's good to know. Also, do the Grand Alliance books (Order, Destruction, Death, Chaos) contain all the force Info? For instance would I need to buy the Blood bound, Everchosen, Dreadhold etc battle tomes or is that all in the Grand Alliance Book? Or, can I get all the info from the Grand ...

Which books should I get?

As I contemplate whether to invest in AoS, I'm wondering what books I should buy. I don't just want the free rules, I would like a book with some background etc. Anyway, I'm thinking I will need the rulebook (does this inclyde any rules for different factions etc?), The Generals handbook (I want to ...

Re: Sending The Glass Cabinet off with some style?

To be honest it's not bad, especially if you play AoS. I don't but I still wanted the model for a Varangur KoW army I'm making. I probably won't buy it again but it was a BIG improvement on the few weekly ones I read.

That's a very good effort and nice model choices. Thanks for running Club 200 this year too.

Re: What I Love, and What I Miss

The only thing I miss (and that really kept my interest) was the Old World setting. I suppose I also miss the sense of community which has sadly splintered now aswell. I would even have given the new game more of a go if it had been kept in the same setting.

My update this month - my first horde of Blacksouls is complete - a combination of two handed weapons and shields so I can swap the front ranks depending on which variant I choose to use.

Hi, just wondered if anyone has any spare Abyssal Dwarf or Dwarf Throwing Mastiff's they'd be interested in selling? I'm after 7 but if anyone has even one or two spare I'd be interested.

Thanks

I'm not a fan. It lacks elegance for want of a better word. Some of the Silver Tower stuff was great but this 'bigger is better' thing just doesn't appeal to me.

Re: White Dwarf Weekly confirmed as dismal failure??

For me a Warhammer game would be one set in the Old World pre being destroyed, preferably (although not essentially) with ranks/files etc. AoS might be a fantasy game but to me it isn't Warhammer despite it being given the name.

Re: totally flummoxed and confused

1992 will be the year the model was made. They will probably still be use able (may even be worth a bit/rare if you are lucky).

I'm certain if you get some pictures up they will be identified by forum members!

Yup, total failure. I stopped buying it when it went weekly, and I wasn't going to buy/pay a ridiculous amount for Visions (essentially an overpriced catalogue). I'd be more inclined to buy the monthly White Dwarf if there was any Warhammer Fantasy in it, but that doesn't look likely. Bring it back ...

Re: Thinking about getting back in to warhammer

If you want something like old Warhammer I'd be looking at Kings of War which has lots of support from its parent company (Mantic) and a good community - my preference, or T9A (The 9th Age) that also seems to have a good bit of interest or even good old 8th edition WFB.
