  1. Ya I’m curious what the February White Dwarf will have. Didn’t GW hire the designer of Hinterlands?
  2. Ya. I’ve been playing with the house rule of “No Heroes”. Works better that way.

    Is the system going to be more of a Fantasy (percentile-based) system, or something completely new?

    How do you play open/casual?

    I like the bold part. In 40k, they actually added an additional restriction to matched play that you can't take the same unit more than 3 times (I think Troops can be taken more than 3 still). That could be an interesting wrinkle. I'd think for AoS, it would be: "Except for battleline units, you can't take more than two of the same unit or more than one of the same unit if you are taking a maximum sized unit." That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure that's not perfect.

    Does using points, but using Open War or narrative missions instead of Matched Play missions count? That's all I've ever done. I just find it too hard to balance without using points.
  6. Not to derail the thread any further but Nick Horth talked pretty extensively as well about the narrative process on the latest Stormcast podcast.
  7. There are a fair amount of non-human undead and chaos mentioned in the novels. I’d love to see rules for using them. We don’t need new models necessarily. They could have “upgrade” kits made available to convert models from Order or Destruction to Death or Chaos. I’d love to create some Death or Chaos Ogors. Or some Orruk Zombies... etc...
  8. I got no problems with elves. Those books just seem on surface a bit more stuck in the Old World than the others. Im familiar with the vibe of the Old World mostly from the video games. If that trilogy is a good read I’ll give it a whirl.
  9. These past months I've been doing a deep dive reading AoS novels. I got through the entire Realmgate Wars, Soul Wars, Plague Garden, Hammerhall, the two Callis & Toll books, Shadespire, and the Gotrek audio book. I've loved most of it, especially the Callis & Toll stuff and the more recent Josh Reynolds books. His books seem to start off kind of slow for me, but they really ramp up nicely. I'm thinking of picking up either the Sigmar, Nagash, or Gotrek books from the Warhammer Chronicles lines. Are they any good? I'm not too keen on the old dwarf and elf stuff, but if they are really good, I might try them.
  10. I think in that case you just bring the whole warband at it's full cost, just like a character. It would be similar to using a War Engine or Behemoth with "multiple models"... but it's really just one model (not on the same base).
  11. Would it make sense as a variant format, to disallow Hero characters for balancing?
  12. I don’t think it’s an oversight. It’s just not useful in Skirmish. Not everything has to be (at least imo).
  13. No. You can only pick a Grand Alliance allegiance and only choose the traits etc outlines for that allegiance in the skirmish rules.
  14. Correct. This ability won’t have an effect.
  15. There are going to be more rules in the February issue, including campaign rules
