Hello everyone, I used to play Warhammer back in the day but sold off all my stuff. Now I really want to get back into it and field a Wood Elf army. I have a few questions.
1) I read that Fantasy Warhammer is on the 7th Edition and that the 8th Edition is not to far off? 2) Whats the deal with that, cant they just get it right and stop messing with it or is it truly needed? Perhaps they make mucho denaro off the rule books? 3) I also read that Wood Elf's don't have a 7th ed book but will with the unveiling of the 8th ed? 4) Is there a place online where I can flip threw the current rules?
To your questions,I'm sceptical of this one. Generally, GW have been pretty good with updating all FB books before working on a new edition of rules. It also tends to depend on your source. Redshirts and managers know just as much as you or I about these things, and GW actually used to pay people to spread rumours about new books. Not too sure if they still do.1) I read that Fantasy Warhammer is on the 7th Edition and that the 8th Edition is not to far off?Yeah, profit is generally the big motivator for new books every two months. It's why smurfs (Space marines) are updated so much.2) Whats the deal with that, cant they just get it right and stop messing with it or is it truly needed? Perhaps they make mucho denaro off the rule books?They should get a new book before 8th Edition (8e if you want to use nerd-speak), as will every army that hasn't received one yet.3) I also read that Wood Elf's don't have a 7th ed book but will with the unveiling of the 8th ed?Sadly, no. GW are very tough with their IP, which is why people can't post stuff like stats or long passages from rulebooks here on LO.4) Is there a place online where I can flip threw the current rules?No problems. That's what I'm here for.Thanks
Hope this helps. Welcome to LO, check out the rules and if you stick to them, you can't go too far wrong. If you get into any trouble, ring the cowbell of Moderator-summoning (or just PM myself- whatever's easiest at the time), and I'll try help out any way I can.
Yeah, 7th ed. hasn't been out that long, and there are still many books to be redone, including WEs. Wood Elves will be one the last to be redone, but it should come sooner and later.
Your concerns sound like pretty far-fetched rumors. I think you're safe to dive in and enjoy the fun. Or rather, slip into the forest and begin notching arrows.
Cheers and welcome to LO.
Thanks for the info, hopfully I can sell some usless crap and get an army together. Then the domination station will be pulling into port! Death to all who enter the forbidden woods!
I remember when I sold my VC book to some unsuspecting sucker who didn't know a new one was due for re-release. I really love LO sometimes.
