There has been a huge online response to the latest incarnation of Warhammer Fantasy Battle 9th Edition The Age Of Sigmar, partly, one would assume to the massive title, but mostly because Game$ Work$hop have completely rewritten the way the game plays. Gone is the ancient model profile with Weapon Skill and Ballistic Skill and in comes a very basic fixed roll to hit and a similar fixed roll to wound anything. Gone are points values. Just use as many models as you like.Having not played Warhammer Fantasy Battle since 2002, this new version caught my interest for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I have a couple of large armies in The Loft Full Of Lead that only come out for a game of No Quarter now and then. Secondly, these new rules are available free, so it is easy to download them and give it a go. What is there to lose?
So with the four page rules printed out and the Vampire Counts Warscroll loaded onto my tablet, tomorrow will see a game between the undead and some of Steinbergs Empire.
