Welcome to Librarium Online!
Heya, I think some of you here in the fantasy section MAY recognize me from the Space Marine Boards.
After awhile I started noticing the Fantasy armies on the store shelves and I asked around. Only a few of my 40k buddies play Fantasy as well, so I didn't get much.
So, I turn to you guys. Could you give me a breif rundown of major differences between 40k and Fantasy?
Also, a breif rundown of these armies: Brettonians, High Elves and Wood Elves. Right now, the Wood Elves are most appealing, but I want to find out more before I invest in anything.
Thank you, very much!
Well, go check out the WE forum for a long discussion of what I think of that army.
I don't play 40K, so all I know is what some friends of mine, who play both, have said. They say it plays really differently. Ranks and blocks of static troops in Warhammer is much different from the skirmishing, every-model-for-himself movement of 40K.
I read someone's Space Marine codex and was totally perplexed by it.
You should just ask one of your buddies who has more than one army if you can play a game with him.
I have been playing fantasty for about 7 years now, and 40k for only about 2 months. they are vastly different!
the basic dice rolls, and psycology is the same. but the main difference i have seen is how psycology effects battles. in 40k it is a rare time that a panic test is failed or a unit flees. in fantasty many battles are decided by the outcome of combat resolution or panic testing.
also the way the troops move and shoot are alot different. the block formations mean that there is a very limited line of sight in fantasty, units block LOS for shooting. and charging is at the begining of the turn.
