With the release of 7th edition fantasy, can poeple confirm or deny this rumor for me. they are going to jump right into re doing empire after orcs a goblins.
i dont know if its true or not.
as when the 40k rulebook came out they jumped into space marines as that is the army that most campaigns are based around and such, so i have been told its the same for fantasy, as Empire are the be all and end all if you like of fantasy.
and i really wanna collect a fantasy army, looks much harder than 40k, and much cooler...
thinking bretonnians or wood elves or lizardmen.
Fantasy is harder to play, and a lot harder to play well. You typically need a better grasp of tactics and you need to think ahead a lot. Basically, WH40K is more forgiving if you get something wrong.
Armies which are easier to play with include Empire, Brettonians, Dwarfs, Mortal Chaos, Orcs & Goblins and Lizardmen. All are very flexible.
Vampire Counts, Tomb Kings, Daemon Chaos and Beast Chaos are typically more powerful but fragile due to special rules.
High Elves, Wood Elves and Dark Elves are very fragile and take a lot of skill to use properly, but can take most things if done so.
All in all, up to you!
Well as for the rumour I know that they will be redoing Orcs and Goblings, which should be out in 1Â½ month, Don't know about the empire.
I disagree that elves are hard to play, and there is more challenge to other armys with more 'everything or nothing' special rules, such as Tomb Kings.

I have heard that Empire will be redone for the start of next year; even going so far as to redo 90% of the model range too keep the same sculpting levels as the Dwarves and Orcs have gotten recently.

Empire is the next fantasy army and after that Vampire counts are going to get a new book and range. After that its still up in the air.
hmmm... i like empire but i am thinking i need an army, but which one... hmmm orc and goblins do look cool butttt...
anywho, is the empire still a rumor or is it confirmed?
not that it matters. well thanks!

skaven are extremely fun to play. there is nothing like tying up a regiment with slaves and firing a warp lightning cannon into them followed by a warpfire. ha ha ha
there is no art more beautiful and diverse as the art of death
plz don't play Empire ! Empire and Spaces marines are the same... people play them, they are like the superhuamn power and all campagn are around them. plz don't play them, i'm so tired of all the kiddies that come at my town GW store and are like ''OOOH spaces marines, they are the good guys, they ar ebetter'' or ''OOOH, Empire, they are the good guys, they are better'' plz dont plzy this.
empire are not the spacemarines of whfb, its defonatley dwarfs, good save, good weapon skill strength and toughness, solid leadership, all for a crazerly cheep price ... sounds like a spacemarine to me
no word on when HE are being redone

-DoomThere is no Space Marine of Fantasy. There is no one army that i so powerful that everyone plays it. Some are easier to play, but there is just no one big army.Originally Posted by Magicaltux
