  1. The latest pre-orders have gone up and as many of us expected free warscrolls are no longer listed for download on the website. Based on reboxing we also know that the warscrolls included only show stats and not abilities. Therefore the only official way to get rules currently is to purchase a full physical battletome. GW seem to have permanently ditched digital books. The official form of digital rules will only be the currently non existent aos app that will form part of the paid for warhammer+ sub. In the transition from 2nd edition to 3rd we have lost the free app, free rules on the website and access to digital books. This during a global pandemic where many people have faced financial challenges and where GW continue to earn record profits. My view is this is incredibly anti consumer and should be met with universal scorn from hobbyists everywhere. I will continue to access my rules elsewhere, but I'm not linking anything as it may violate forum rules to do so.

  2. I am strongly encouraging my fellow AoS hobbyists to avoid signing up to WH+ Reasons 1) There is little to no AoS content at launch. We know there are no AoS animations as part of the launch offering. The only announced AoS fiction for the platform is the Blacktalon animation that lacks any clear release. We know there are two battle reports and two painting videos, it seems likely that one of each will be for AoS. However, there are tons of free painting videos on YouTube (including by GW) and if you are looking to go to the next level I would advise spending the money supporting a pro painter who has a patreon. There are so many free battle reports on YouTube. 2) We have no idea when the AoS app will launch or the state it will be in. Put simply it could be a complete car crash or totally lacking in features. We also have no idea when it will be updated or how much premium access will be included initially as opposed to a free "beta". If you think I am being pessimistic look at the 40k app and how that went. 3) We have no idea how often new content will be added. Very simple. They could add several new episodes each week, or it could be a couple a month. We also don't know how long these episodes will be. For instance, painting videos may only be 5 to 10 minutes. 4) There is no harm in waiting. Give it a few months. You can get an idea of the quality and schedule of content, as well as hopefully see the release of the aos app. If it turns out to be great then you've got a few episodes of different series lined up to binge. If it turns out ****** then you've dodged a bullet. Sure you are going to miss out on some store vouchers, but most countries have access to LGS who offer 10 to 25% discounts on GW products. You also potentially save more money by just waiting. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY... 5) Put pressure on GW We should all remember that up until now a lot of the content that exists on WH+ has been available for free. The old AoS app, painting videos and so on. GW is monetizing something they used to give away, and as consumers that isn't a good deal for us. Nor are they actually sticking to their commitments, I.e. including a premium aos app at launch. If the service struggles to attract subscribers at launch do you know what will happen? They will have to make it more appealing to consumers. Do you know who wins from that? YOU! A final word... If you are already using the paid features of the 40k app or are really keen to set aside time to pour through old white dwarf articles, then go ahead and subscribe. I know there will be value in this content to some people. This post is meant to argue that the cost exceeds the value for most AoS players. If you are 100% happy and excited for what's already been announced then I truly hope you have a lovely bug free launch day and enjoy it!

  3. Due to some of the posts we’ve seen recently, I think I need to remind some of you what we want to see here on TGA. The reason we all visit this forum, is because we like assembling, painting and gaming with Games Workshop miniatures and playing Age of Sigmar (or a combination of those or some of the other things they do). Now I’d like to think we are all a little bit mature and know that we may all like different things and not always agree on the same things. HOWEVER, some of you have been posting negative comments and if I’m honest, after a long day or work the last thing you want to read is somebody moaning about a hobby you enjoy and use to escape the horrors of the real world. Its okay not to like everything GW does. It’s okay not to agree with what everybody else says. Its okay to be a bit grumpy about something you have been looking forwards to and not have it turn out you would like it. BUT it’s not okay to moan and post negative comments. It’s just not great to read about something you enjoy. We Mods try to lurk in the background and steer things as they need to because we think you all want to enjoy this forum in the same way. We are not saying you can’t say you don’t like something but just be constructive with the criticism. If you are replying to something, just pause and think of what you are writing could be classed as negative. In no way am I saying we are going cancel culture, Woke or whatever you want to call this but I would like to think you could apply some common sense, care about your fellow hobbyists and players and generally keep this a great forum for discussing about Age of Sigmar. Thank You

  8. Disappointing. Not a huge surprise but still a disappointing retrenchment into classically bad GW consumer practices, part of what appears to be a harsh ‘locking down’ of many aspects of their stuff and a return to a higher barrier to entry in some regards. As has been said before, ‘GW definitely wouldn’t do this’ turned out to be incorrect pretty quickly. I’m also uncomfortable with this idea being put around (not specifically on TGA) that it’s not so bad as GW used to have no free rules at all. Free warscrolls have been a feature for six years, the entire lifespan of AoS, people are right to feel like it’s an important part of their game. Moreover people are right to feel sore about it; if all narrative rules (or multi-part minis or certain factions or painting guides or another aspect of the hobby) were scrapped and their absence justified with ‘well, once these didn’t exist so you’re just back to how things used to be’, people would be entirely right in feeling that the game was poorer for something being taken away. It feels like overall it’s there to prop up an app that frankly we have no real reason to have high expectations of, one that may well be a significant step down from Azyr and/or Warscroll Builder. What’s unfortunate is how the scrapping of warscrolls really hurts casual or narrative players most, anyone who just wants to chuck some dice around their plastic soldiers.

  9. Can we keep the moaning about W+ to one of the other moaning about W+ threads? So much negativity about the hobby recently, i'm almost ready to pack up just to get away from the community. I wouldn't care if it was all in one place so i could just avoid opening that topic, but people are hell bent on spreading it everywhere. I want to read wild speculation about new Blades of Khorne releases, not endless posts about GW being bad. This place is a real bummer to visit recently.

  10. Yeah, no. This isn’t people whining out of entitlement. People are annoyed because a commitment has been made, missed, no explanation provided, no new date announced, and all references to the original commitment scrubbed out of existence. For all intents and purposes people feel like they have been lied to and treated like fools. A simple explanation wouldn’t change things but it would go a long way.

  15. I play with the (digital) BT but I use the freely available warscrolls on the freely available app (rest in peace) *all the time* to check both my units' and the opponent's warscrolls. So this looks more and more likely to result in (another) straight downgrade of my experience with AoS For me money is tight. I rely on the free warscrolls. I can justify £25 for the Cities tome, just, but if I then have to buy the SCE and Sylvaneth tomes to have the rules for all my units then that's £75 just for the rules for my army. And against family finances I can't justify that. Even worse is not being able to research what my opponents might be bringing to the table. Am I meant to buy the tome for every faction I might face?

  17. When I got back into Warhammer after a break of about 10 years, I was pretty firmly in the camp of "GW models are good, but everything else they do is a scam". Or maybe not a scam, but they are using their position to take advantage of their customers. However, at the time I got back in about two years ago, I looked at the state of GW and saw some pretty reasonable policies: Free warscrolls, free list builder, somewhat transparent communication and regular FAQ support. It looked to me like GW had put their previous policies that had led to the death of Warhammer Fantasy behind them to a degree and were focussing on just making a game that is as good as it could be (to a degree, they are still a profit driven company after all). But in the last year or so, GW have definitely shown that they are fine with having an antagonistic relationship with their customers if it means higher profit. The Lumineth release was one example of that, where they released the two halves of the army separately, using their internal knowledge to maximize profits against their player's best interest. The removal of free war scrolls are another example of this: Take something that was previously free and convenient, and make the whole game worse and less conventient to play by putting it behind a paywall. The removal of free warscrolls signals a return to Kirby era practices to me. It seems GW wants to go back to the good old times, where they were basically the only game in town. In the 2000s, people put up with having to buy battletomes and rule books, because there was basically no other distribution method around. But that's really not the case anymore in an age where basically every game has a wiki detailing all of it's mechanics. Making you buy individual books in a dedicated app is just so far below the current standard of what's possible. There is really no reason I should have to buy books in a dedicated app just to look at unit stats. It's an awful user experience. And the fact that GW tries to get me to do it after several years of record profits, just to squeeze slightly higher profit margins out of the game, really shows me that I should endeavour to not give GW any extra money whenever I can avoid it in order not to reward this type of business strategy.

  20. I never asked for W+. I don't want all that other junk. I just want a good game with easy access to digital rules that you don't get double-dipped for or nudged into buying a lot of stuff you don't want using the old "buy more and save!" pitch. Does that make me "entitled" and a "moaner?" I'm sure GW is happy to see you saying so. But I don't think it's so unreasonable a wish list, and I think it's rather poor of you to look down your nose at people like me who have different interests. It's like the used car salesman trying to upsell you to something that costs 5k more because "you get 25k worth of stuff!" accusing you of "moaning" and being "entitled" if you say "no, I'd really just like a car that works, thank you."

  21. It's a really, really bad decision, and it proves what some of us suspected for a while now - that free scrolls were never anything more than a way to entice people into a new game after they squatted WHFB. Now that AOS is established, they've done away with them. This is something people shouldn't put up with. The idea that they're doing it because it's too hard to keep the scrolls on the website updated is frankly a bit silly, it's saying the reason they can't do one thing is because they won't bother to do another. This is another of GW's recent decisions aimed at squeezing even more money out of the player base to raise their already incredible margins by a few more % points to satisfy investors who demand continual stock price growth. I'm sorry if that sounds negative or not constructive, but I don't think there is any way to say this in a more positive way. It's not a positive decision. There are no positives to be had here, unless you're a GW investor rather than an AOS player. It's been one of the continuous puzzles of GW in the last year that they've actually been moving *away* from easy digital access to rules rather than towards it.

  22. I think we should stop making excuses for them. We are their customers, not their friends. Nobody is perfect and sometimes things slip through the cracks. However, after so many years of putting out erratas for things that shouldn't make it past an initial QA check, GW now appears to be incapable of releasing a product that doesn't become invalidated almost immediately. Sometimes they even need to errata their errata, and sometimes even more than once. It's embarrassing for a company to constantly make these kinds of blunders... it gives the impression that they don't care about their own game and/or the players. Im sure most of them are a lovely bunch of people, but they are either not giving it their best effort or their best effort isn't enough. They need to do better because they are eventually going to run out of the good will they built up over the past five years.

  24. It’s a very specific pandemic recovery that allows GW to release a 40k box, a 40k dual box, 40k battle sisters, 40k kill team, 2 40k FAQs and publish a 40k “roadmap”, but delays AoS battletomes, the AoS GhB FAQ, and AoS Forgeworld points. Very specific. Very specific indeed. Almost like they are prioritising one thing over the other. I wonder if the pandemic recovery is also responsible for Warhammer+ being almost all 40k content also? Edit: anyone else remember that time the pandemic meant there wasn’t enough data for AoS points updates, but there was enough data for 40k points updates? That’s so convenient. Turns out Covid is a massive 40k nut and just had it in for AoS all along.

  25. Hope that one day most will understand that it means more than just a social movement, its part of life and should be accepted. But as much as we can all talk about it we can show this through the hobby and other means any can access. It would mean much to the community. I appreciate all of your support towards this comment. Maybe we can start a community project? Message me if you are interested. I will try to organize something.

  28. Interestingly, as @HollowHills suggested, there are a number of canonical nonbinary characters in Slaanesh however I think they're often misgendered as "she". Shalaxi, Dexcessa, and Synnessa are all only canonically referred to as 'they', but fans usually refer to them as female (though sometimes male for Shalaxi); I'd imagine that it's because they have a feminine form and name (with a vowel ending), and they sound more female when voiced over. Just an interesting tidbit! (A few people will say all demons don't have a gender, but this isn't true in the sense that Skarbrand, Rotigus, and Kairos are always referred to as "he" - they may be malignant figments of the imagination, but they are gendered malignant figments of the imagination). I definitely agree that I'd like to see more representation, especially with how open a setting AoS is. While I love Slaanesh, I do hope that other factions get more LGBT+ representation because it feels a little, erm, questionable for the only LGBT+ coded faction (where it's common and very much accepted canonically) to also be the faction that represents depravity and who are probably the most deplorable and evil faction in the game. I know this is a holdover from the 80s where Slaanesh was more rockstar culture, but it'd be nice to see more LGBT+ heroes (as in, 'good' guys).

  34. If only there was some kind of way, perhaps an app of some kind, where rules could be updated on the fly. Of course this would not be entirely free, perhaps some kind of subscription service, surely people would be ok with that... Nah just release it in paper format from a country that can't buy or ship paper or cardboard apparently, that will also be great to carry around with your tome, 300 page rulebook, rulers, terrain, small dog and umbrella.

  35. I totally agree, and it really does feel like the hype and positivity around AoS is dropping a lot. It's especially frustrating as it seems more to mismanagement rather than mistakes in the rules, and then other things beyond their control. To put it in a timeline: - The last few AoS releases, while looking amazing, have had bizarre hype cycle. Slaanesh was partially shown in November, then had its modsls spoiled in the Warcry book, then were all shown on Christmas, and then Cursed City, Lumineth, and Gravelords were shown before their release. Very hype killing for those interested - Cursed City happened and this got a lot of people riled up against GW and their lack of communication and clarity - We had leaks of AoS 3s rules, and these spread around the internet. Certainly not reaching everyone but also being pretty widely known - Everyone suspects AoS 3 is coming, so the hype on release is lessened as there's no surprise. There's still hype but maybe not quite as much - Model descriptions start to be leaked, which is exciting when you first hear them but again takes away from the excitement on the official release as a lot of it turns into just waiting for confirmation - Dominion is announced and it does look really cool, but Kruelboyz are a little divisive in appearance. Not only that, there's some confusion on how they'll be included in AoS rules (e.g. will they get their own battletome) - Some of the rules were confirmed and proved controversial, such as 'Unleash Hell'. Regardless of how they've turned out, there definitely seemed to be more mixed opinions on the new rules. Many seemed to be an improvement, and some seemed to raise protest. In contrast to AoS 2 where the vast majority of rules were just a full upgrade to the more barebones AoS 1 - They do "how your army will be helped in AoS 3 articles" which end up being a bit of a damp squib. While they were designed for newer players, they didn't exactly seem exciting when they arrived. This is in contrast to AoS 2, which often previewed new summoning rules or GHB battletome stand ins for each faction - each preview seemed more important - There was still a lot of excitement, but when Dominion is hyped so much and doesn't sell out of the limited coins, I think this 'worried' some people. Not that it was an indication of health of the game, but the excitement did seem lower on the forum as the hype wore off - After a while, the FAQ dropped and that caused upset in some factions - The new battletomes for the Dominion factions will likely arrive 2 months after the box, especially after being told it was a month. A lot of people have lost the excitement in this time - There's also no GHB FAQ (or even knowledge that it will exist) which makes it feel like AoS has been hung to dry when 40k gets all of its rules. This isn't a good feeling after the new edition just dropped --- I think a lot of this could have been solved with better communication. While it's not as easy as it looks, as someone with experience in marketing, I think they've done a 'poor' job at it for 2020 and 2021. I'm sure it hasn't lost them money, but I think it has lost them goodwill and could spell issues in the future. Especially when it comes to changing information with silent erratas and hyping a faction up far too early in advance.

  36. Even the use of the word ‘soon’ is frustrating at this point. It hasn’t been soon. And October has also been removed, so expect the Chaos tome to drop later… I’m the first person to defend GW and advocate patience, and I actually wouldn’t mind the delays to the launches — if they were just honest with us and better at communicating.

  38. I think something like a canon trans (or even otherwise LGB, which I don't think we have seen yet) character model would be pretty cool. There was that mention of a non-binary/third gender Stormcast and nonbinary-to-female Skink Priestess in one of the Soulbound books, and I thought that really added to the atmosphere of how vast and full of possibility the mortal realms are. Really, in a place as magical as the mortal realms, I would be surprised if people didn't change their bodies to better match their souls occasionally. I also want it to be known that my skeleton hordes are strictly equal opportunity.

Not particularly impressed that you as a moderator chose to punch down on me in public, not even private message, to defend the honour of a global corporation over an entirely legitimate opinion you happen to disagree with. The wider discussion has been around the accessibility of GW systems, mu comment was entirely in keeping with that wider discussion. At no point did I attack Andy. I very specifically mentioned GW. I didn't even attack them. I said that I think they don't care about rules. They can't or don't need to care about everything. They're clearly thriving with the focus they have. Subjectively, were you in the same situation, I'm quite sure you would feel the same. Delete my post if you want, thats your right, it happens, or if you want to talk to me or I would suggest any member about their behaviour, then have the courtesy to do it in private. Don't treat me or others like a naughty child in front of the school assembly for having a difference of opinion.

  42. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/09/05/sunday-preview-two-new-battletomes-and-a-whole-new-show-on-warhammer/ Can't believe I'm saying this but Battletomes next week! Also the Soul Wars exclusive Lord-Arcanum sprue as a webstore exclusive so we can expect the Nighthaunt leaders to get the same treatment

  45. I hate being treated like I'm stupid... retro-editing the dates and trying to pretend "it never happened..." - it was the thing that really annoyed me about Cursed City. Just be straight with us...
