Good or bad, one things for sure: it'll be expensive as fuck.

Hopefully, if not there are dozens of other systems out there for fantasy rank and flank. Just hope some of the new models are cool looking.

What was the last good thing GW did?
>>
Nah, there'll be some usable models but they'll be overpriced to buggery, system will be mediocre, support for it will trickle out particularly if they try and rush something for TWW3, and it will be special character driven like TWW, AOS and modern 40k.
>>
>>78525316

blood bowl was pretty alright (not the newest stuff)
>>
>>78526868

>special character driven
AoS has less special character than WHFB
>>
>>78527351
And?
>>
>>78525316
Name one good system GW has put out in the last decade that isn't MESBG(itself just a cleaned up version of a 20 year old game).
ToW will at best not be completely awful, but it certainly won't be good either.
>>
>>78527351
Which only means you see more of the few it does have because they're just that strong.
>>
>>78526860
Everything since the 8th edition reboot has been an improvement.
>>
>>78527515
For their business, not for the game.
>>
>>78527433
>>78527514
Not really, special characters are usually side grades that require you to play a certain sub faction. They range from busted Teclis to literally who Alarielle
>>
>>78527524
40K is better in every way since 8th. Specialist games are back. Even Age of Sigmar is apparently in a good state. You're really showing how new you are by not being aware of these things.
>>
>>78527107
That's because they literally copied it from its fan-made version. The initial rulebook even had the same typos as the fan-made one
>>
>>78527608
Not him but 40K 8th is very different than older editions and doesn’t appeal to many of the older players anymore. It became a fundamentally different style of game. I’m glad it’s seeing a new surge of popularity but it just isn’t fun for me anymore
Sigmar is pretty fun though
>>
Yeah for scalpers, they will hoard manuals, cards and minis due to limited printing from GW and most ppl will be unable to play like with WH40 atm.
>>
So here’s what we know for sure
>set during the war of the three emperors
>will include empire, kislev, bretonnia, orcs, and high elves at least
>it uses square bases
>it’s being headed by forge world
We can assume
>other old world races will be included, new world studf probably in later releases
>it’s 28mm
>it’s rank and flank

I’d say it has a decent shot. Rank and flank has shown to still be something that can survive in the current market with things like oathmark. Plus the forge world side game guys who are on this usually do a good job. Nightmare scenario is resinshit
>>
>>78525316
I don't think so, no. And this comes from somebody who spent years respectfully requesting a return of old WFB, repeatedly telling GW customer service I'd drop tens of thousands of dollars yearly if they'd only release non-AoS WFB stuff again.

But WtOW is going to be shit. I have no faith in nuGW and their pozzed corporate dictates. You can already tell from the shitty Kislev concept art that it's just going to be more of the same nuGW generic fantasy horseshit instead of their cool grimdark setting that started as generic fantasy and became something great on its own. Sad days ahead.
>>
>>78527792
This has to be bait, it’s too perfectly constructed to be an accident.
>>
>>78527351
See, kid, special characters were, you know, special. They were for special occasions and often they weren't allowed on tournaments and such, depending on edition.
>>
>>78527808
Yeah, too many hooks.
>>
>>78527808
How is it bait? Everything we've seen for WtOW looks awful. The first unit teased is some shitty late 8th edition magic weapon wielding unit of ice princesses. Absolutely shit nuGW fielding. Does not inspire confidence.

>>
>>78527563
If I had proofed my post with a lawyer's eye I might have written "more special character driven" but when you come from never seeing a special character at a tournament because you had to ask permission to use them, and only ever saw them at a handful of special events, and you're comparing that to a game where you can search "such-and-such-character meta" and get hits ... you don't consider that somebody could "uhm ackshually..." your post. Maybe I'm naive.

I started an orcs and goblins army at that time as I was fed up with 40k and Fantasy, even 8th, was more fun.

No.

I wish they wouldn't do this. Retiring the setting was the best thing that could have happened to it. Look at the End Times/Age of Smegmar setting or nu40k, and tell me that Fantasy not suffering the same fate was not a blessing.

>>78528401
How is Erehwon, I’ve heard mixed things about it kind of like SPQR, but unlike SPQR it hasn’t had a “we’re sorry” combo deal yet
>>
>>78528007
From the end of 4th to mid 5th was peak waaagh! No joke.
>>
>>78525316
Probably not. I mean I'm a WFB fan, but modern GW suck, and so will this game.
>>
>>78528395
It's the fucking truth. Fantasy would be completely in the toilet too, if GW hadn't retired the setting and launched the End Times/Smegmar setting instead.
>>
>>78528409
Erehwon is a fundamentally sound derivation of Bolt Action, which I like in vague abstract terms, I just find a pretty mediocre WWII ruleset. Could do with a more comprehensive set of army lists rather than trawling through Priestley's facebook posts, but it's decent. SPQR is a fundamentally broken, underbaked steaming grog bog and even if Erehwon was mediocre it would still be an unflattering comparison.

Going by what WHFB's sales numbers looked like when it was still around, they wouldn't sell enough of it to get back the cost of making the new molds.

By bloating it with special rules, making vehicles monstrous infantry, and making the to-wound chart absolutely worthless.

NTA but that is half the reason WFB tanked in the first place, the other is that balance was completely fucked not long behind the massive and rapid price per model increases from the twilight of 6th.

Consider the state that 30k is in regarding support, rules quality, release schedule and price.
Then consider that instead of focussing on 4 unique factions (Legion, Auxilia, Mechanicum and Talons), people seem to expect 16 factions plus Kislev and Cathay.

What do you think of Warhammer armies project 9th? I've got some friends who I've finally convinced to try something with superior square bases, and it looked like a better way to dust off my Bretonnian army than usual ng their old ass army book in an 8th edition game.

The fact that 6th moved some of the power from heroes to units was the only big change. The rest wasn't drastic. But I get your point in my group we still have diehard fans of 5th who deapise 6th. On the other hand things like ogre hero with a unit using grey magic teleporting into the enamies on 2nd turn is not a thing I want to get back to.

This is only tangentially related to the thread, but I see people say that square bases are ugly, both here and a lot of other places online.
I know aesthetics come down to personal taste, but I feel like the shape of the base is such a small detail, I don't know why so many people are upset by it.
Gameplay-wise I get that they have the drawback of being longer diagonally than top to bottom, which can fuck with measuring distance, but that's pretty minor imo.

>>78525826
this....
square bases / fantasy regiments. more men in the square means stronger unit (like in fantasy)
AKA competitive square collections.
this could get dumb very fast...

new neat models that can be used in other games? yes please but i doubt everything will get a new model.
it might be leaders and war machines only
perhaps oldskool dragons..? not the lame sigmar thin lizard with wings.

i dare say it may fizzle out or only the eldest of us all will want / play / spend money and time on this.

It's good if you like WFB, walks back a few of the faults of 9th. Army books can have some cringe OC but the level of support for all sorts of disparate subfactions and the breadth of units available to armies from their history is pleasant.

I don't care how any of my armies fare in GWs new game. If I can use my old stuff, great, I'll probably buy some more stuff to add on to my armies if I see anything I like. If not, I'll just stick to older editions or similar games, which is why I was asking about the armies project's 9th edition.

>>78540764
Is it easy enough to learn coming from 8th? It's not the first time ive had to shift editions, but teaching people new to fantasy how to play an edition I haven't might be difficult if it's too different
>>
>>78539015
As a dwarf player who's played it only as dwarves it's definitely fantasy. It's literally just 8th edition with a lot of the bullshit trimmed out and fluffy things added in like throwing axes for basic infantry, more than three rune spells not directly tied to the anvil of doom, etc. It's fun for what it is, but it just suffers from what I call "mantic syndrome." Inthat it's a fine game for what it is, but it just doesn't have the direct feel that WHFB had. It's literally a soul vs soulless thing that /v/ likes to throw around.

They'd have to actually exist to die off anon. I've only ever seen people try out the game once or twice, then never play it again and that was at the very beginning. Most people I even see play anything with the setting are the small box skirmish games. Even now, after briefly scanning the "rules" of the newer edition, it's still a shit game compared to WHFB.
>>78528672
Even as "bad" as WHFB's sales were (30% of total sales) it was still better than AoS'. they could have AOS sell at the rate of peak 40k for the next 10 years and not recover the cost they lost from the first few years of the end times.
>>
>>78528861
No they're bringing back fantasy because of just how shit AOS does in sales. No one plays it, and the only people actually buy shit from the line are your typical kitbash fags and whales. They can try to blanket the causation for bring back the old world they want, it's because no one is buying their shit replacement and with the increase of interest from Total War and Vermintide they've done nothing but gone beyond shooting their foot off. at this point they've blown the whole leg off.

It's literally the stock of Games Workshop from 2015 to 2019. People were bailing on games workshop left and right during the end times that their stock plummeted in massive amounts from the backlash alone. Not only that you can look at the sales during that time and you can correlate what I'm saying from that directly alone. Not even mentioning the costs of having to make new moulds for literally everything, shelling out paying for rules writes shitting out the steaming piles they made, etc.

No amount of you fags white knighting Games Workshop will change the fact that them murdering WHFB was nothing short of a Titanic commercial blunder the likes that hasn't been seen in the industry ever.

Warhammer is far too flanderized for them to just release something grounded and subtle unfortunately.

You mean the actual customers. I'll give you there were people who still plague the fandom who are completely irredeemably terrible (WAACfags) but when GW murdered WHFB they also murdered any trust they had from their customer base I know quite a few people after the fact who literally said they'll never buy from them ever again after what they did and these were the same people who regularly bought product every week, myself included. Like it or not the only people who still buy GW product are purely 40kfags or fanboys who will white knight them until the day they die.

AoS has come closer to 40k's numbers then WHFB ever did.
>>
The fact that GW killed off and now are bringing back WHFB tells me two things:
1) WHFB wasn't as profitable as 40k when it died and more importantly its profits were probably stagnating. GW probably did the math and decided that the opportunity cost of WFB wasn't worth it for a product line that wasn't growing in profits compared to 40k. All of the proof I have seen about how well WHFB sold has been anecdotal (both for it selling well enough and it not making its money back) so if anyone has actually hard number I would love to see them but at this point I don't think it exists. As for why the profits were stagnating, that has been covered by others in this thread (high cost of entry, poor rules, etc.) but basically it boils down to mismanagement of the property.
2) I think they are putting TOW out because GW realized that they made a mistake. Not in terms of profitability, but they realized that WHFB was the 500lb gorilla in the room that prevented other companies from being able to access rank and flank fantasy market. KoW, Erehwon, Oathmark, etc. all show that there is interest in that style of game and money to be made there. It might also be a Marvel Comics deal where the "comics" in this case is the wargame which isn't expected to turn a large profit (if any) but instead generate value as an IP that can be licensed out for actual profit. Either way, I expect TOW to be a token attempt to keep WHFB "alive" with basically zero chance of it actually being good or threating GWs main line sales.
>>
>>78552791
>AoS has come closer to 40k's numbers
AoS is no where remotely close to 40k's numbers. Dont say cringe like that ever again.

I pray it is! I have high hopes for sure, anon. I expect new and better models. And if it does good, they may even split it from AoS.

I love all of Warhammer and I hope so GW doesn't fuck it up. It's good time for me and my friends.

And I'm excited to see the new Vampire Counts, Tomb Kings and Bretonnia! For the Lady!

I want to get into Fantasy with official models because they're going to be easier to buy for me. Even buying proxies is expensive for me because of shipping so buying Fantasy models in my country would be great.

>>78552951
>AoS is nearly as big as 40k!
Now thats coping.
>>
>>78551349
It won't kill AoS, but it will draw a lot of people from it, I think. There's a lot of AoS players that just see it as a stop gap game to play until they can get their old setting back. There is also an audience that exclusively likes the new weirder stuff, but they're much smaller than the aforementioned group.

>>
>>78550194
>>78550100
People loved fantasy. The problem came, like many, from Kirby, who went full retard on his profit making scheme. Not content with trebling the cost of the models he also had the devs increase the model count in armies by making units cheaper and increasing the standard play size.
My friends Chaos Warrior army went from 60 models to well over 100, and my Skaven army became so large i ended up just dumping the models in a massive toolbox because I didn't have the money or hands to be carting 3 to 4 carry cases about with me.
Nobody wants to paint 300+ models, especially not when most of those are just glorified wound markers. In addition the price per model meant making armies was impossibly expensive for most players either in or looking to get in to the game. So they moved on to other systems and gw lost out, then blamed players for not dumping hundreds or thousands on armies for a game that was rapidly being sidelined for space marines.
>Tl;dr gws greed killed whfb and their narcism meant they blamed players.

>>78554056

The only good thing in Warhammer that's happened was Vermintide (and hopefully Darktide soon). Then again, that's not even on GW, they just let Fatshart use the IP.
>>
>>78554056
>Warmaster
Warmaster was a 10mm massed battle game, meant to represent larger scale engagements as opposed to whfb representing a regiment or battle meeting it's counter, a small scale engagement. Just as Epic was meant to represent large scale battles in the 40k setting.
But gw being gw, they decided to delete these and instead push for larger and larger battles in the (more expensive) main games, breaking the systems in the process.

ice princess was a character in 3rd edition WHFB so you don't know what you're talking about. as long as they releasesome battle boxes that are a great deal ill probably buy some, like the old starter boxes, if its like 1000 points a side in the box im down. like the orc vs empire one.

I doubt they'll do this for whole armies. Daemons here and there are one thing, but they want people to buy more miniatures, not simply reuse what they have from other games. What's more likely is that they'll limit the game to just the Western half of the old world. Most of the AOS armies that root from WHFB can be brushed away as "Not near here". Ogres are somewhere in the Steppes, Chaos Dwarfs are in the Mid-East, Dark Elves are in Naggaroth, Lizardmen are in the Lustria, Skaven and Dwarfs are underground. The only ones they can't make an excuse for is Orcs and Goblins.

>>78525316
They will retcon it to make lore worse, but still better than AoS
>>
>>78555298
Nah, no way. Making them compatible across multiple systems is an incredibly lazy and profitable way to generate sales, so they're certain to do it. They're also 100% including Kislev (and therefore probably Ogres), Orcs and Goblins, Wood Elves, and probably High Elves too.

You're like one of the kids who treat 6th ed of WFB as oldhammer...

> 'everything comes back around, even squares'
This does not necessarily imply squares. Among other things, because they did not use "around", but "round". Which could also be read as "everything comes back rounded, even squares". It is a play of words meant to reveal little.

My money is on WotR square trays, with round bases within. Single model removal has largely fallen out of favor with mass battle games.

Anon the announcement trailer literally shows a standard square base front and fucking center with those words.

I think that's the one thing I don't give a fuck about coming back from wf

Yes, and until I see miniatures based on 20mm squares I won't believe that's what they are going to do.

Because if they were, they would not be so cryptic about it, there would be images of SOMETHING on a square. They have NOTHING to gain over not making it crystal clear... unless they are going to do what I said, square trays with round bases. And they keep it quiet until closer to reception so as not to have a shitstorm raging for years.

This would also accommodate the players (read: clients) that started playing with AoS.

closer to release

Even one retardedly bad choice like the storm cast are enough to ruin a world when it’s best entrants are rehashed and stripped down races of an old game or the same race with an ip friendly name, some child tier lore and cow hats .

They literally said square bases are coming back in one of the earliest announcements. Low effort bait or retard

Nice retarded economic theory crap.
You want real economic fact:
They bought fucking LOTR license, did you expect them to be cannibalized by WFB?
>>
TOW will be shit because it will be a niche market for faggets willing to pay crazy prices for shitty resin models a la HH, meanwhile mass marketing will continue with Aos & Wh40k with chinese plastic mass production.
>>
To be honest, I actually wouldn't mind slotted movement trays because unless you're a skirmisher, the base doesn't fucking matter for rank and file. As someone who played fantasy and still has a whole wood elf army on square bases, it was a pain in the ass getting everything to line up properly, especially because they had tiny ass bases.

Wow this post is so wrong that it has to be bait
>>
>>78526860
as in a totally new concept? Probably Warcry.
>>
>>78572023
HH is about to get plastic production so TOW will likely get plastic support. Everything coming out of Forge World at the minute suggests that GW want integration and to distance themselves from the FW controversies.
