Latest Warhammer Army rules query.

Postby Shadowsin » Sun Mar 15, 2015 5:03 pm

Hey peeps!

just a quick question about how the club will respond to the new Army list creating rules.

With the new Archaon end times book release, i read it in my local GW on the weekend and it said from this point onwards, all warhammer armies, be it end times or not, now have no %'s to choose from. So it's bring what you want now in and points list.

How does the club feel about this. Would we be able to start designing our lists around these new, confirmed rules?

many thanks,

Jay

I suppose it depends ultimately on whether or not it's been FAQ'ed into the core rules or not. Also it all depends what kind of game you want to play, I'm sure you could build some monstrosities without any % limitations.

I'd wait and see if it makes it into the core rules (it took a little while for the 50% Lords & Heroes to make it.) Personally, I prefer the percentage system as at least it makes the army look somewhat like an army and helps to keep the game relatively balanced.

With the percentage systems removed, it would open the game up to a fair bit of abuse. Also, I would imagine tournaments (ours & outside) will likely keep the percentage system in place.

Saying all this though, maybe the odd game with no percentages could be fun though I don't think I'd like to play no percentages on a regular basis.

The wording in Archaon is much clearer than Nagash. Percentages are removed for all army selection from here on.

However there is a 'Designers Note' that says its ok to continue using the rules in the BRB, so its up to everyone to organise between themselves, just like in 40k I suppose.....

Throne of Skulls puts an interesting set of titles that may indicate future factions. Currently it's unbound in virtually every sense but the 5 factions may be a good indication of future direction (Chaos+Skaven, Empire/Bret/Dwarves, Orcs/Ogres, Undead and Elves/lizards? - these are just guesses, I've heard the lizardmen rumors but that's a logical place for them in terms of names).

Hmm, very interesting James.
I'm sure the Throne of Skulls/Battlefields just before the release 8th had us playing the scenarios that would become those in 8th edition, so maybe it is a hint of what's to come...

Perhaps it's worth having a standard assumed "pick up game" rule that we still use the percentages unless decided otherwise by the people playing?
