Warhammer: Empire 9th ed 1.12 out now!

Update 9/1:
  • Greatsword can upgrade to medium or heavy armour, not heavy and full plate armour.

Update 4/1:
  • Warrior Priest prayer's do not affect detachments (as detachments do not exist anymore). 
  • Witch Hunters do not have light armour by default.
  • Fixed bug in army list where Marksmen have A2 and Preceptors have A1.

This update contains the following changes:
  • Removed Knights Panther, Blazing Sun and White Wolves from the book, these can instead be accessed from the expansion with the correct special rules for their Grandmaster.
  • Removed skirmishers from Sisters of Sigmar, is now optional. Added Immunity (Fear). Nerfed to Ld7 like in Mordheim, champions have WS4. Can only have HW and shield, as befits their models. Will get more options in the Priests of the Old World expansion.
  • Cut off Valtens backstory to after he saved Lachenbad so the story does not interject with Volkmar's current fluff. Valten as the Champion of Sigmar will be made available in Storm of Chaos later.
  • Kurt Helborgs armour can never be made worse than 3+, rather than rerolling saves.
  • Boris Todbringer has a shield, hates Beastmen.
  • Jubal Falk may include the Nuln Ironsides.
  • Magnus the Pious have the Leader of Men and Righteous Fury special rules.
  • Additional power dice from multiple Arcane Battle Altars are cumulative.
  • Greatswords are State Troops.
  • Reiksguard Knights joined by Kurt Helborg may re-roll failed break tests.
  • Witch Hunters can take crossbows.
  • Arch Lector 100 pts. 
  • Nerfed Bruckner's amulet.
  • Engineers can have light armour.
  • Flagellants Ld5.
  • Multiple bugs and spelling errors fixed.

As well as this release, you will also soon get an update for Knightly Orders just to bring a few things up to par with 9th ed. After this, I will release a small expansion for Steam Tank Variants as well as a few short stories that include them in battle. Later on, I will work on making rules for the Priests of the Old World, such as Taal, Morr, Verena and so on, including background for all the cults in the Empire. As well as this, I plan to make a Colleges of Magic expansion with fleshed out background from WFRP, rules for Arcane Battle Altars from the other colleges, and probably rules for each of the Patriarchs of the different colleges.

8th ed Ravening Hordes version will updated in around 2 weeks. 

As usual, let me know of needed bugfixes and various feedback. Hope you enjoy the book!

Warhammer 9th Ed 1.073 out now!

This update changes the following:

  • Volley Fire cannot be used if the target is within half the weapon's maximum range.
  • Clarified that a chariot mount follows the rules for ridden monsters in regards to Split Profile. 
  • Frenzied models can take a Ld test to restrain from charging again.
  • Fast Cavalry and skirmishers may reform twice duing their move; once before they move, and at the end of their move.

Also just a quick heads-up on the Empire, seeing as several people been wondering about it; I still need to finish the layout for the main background and some of the graphics which will take some time.

Right now I have also been really busy trying to finish my Playstation collection before the next Steam sale so I won't be swamped in games in December. Fortunately I'm a pretty fast gamer, so I should be able to finish the 9 remaining games on my list this month (probably 3 weeks tops).

After that I will be able to fully commit to working on the books during the remains of November and first half of December, during which I promise you will see the release of the Empire book and probably the High Elf book as well. Just hold on for a few weeks more!

I plan to finish the Empire book sometime next month as well. I've yet to finish proofreading and adding all the art and fluff blurbs, but other than that it's pretty much finished.

Spring Cleaning - models for sale!

Update: Just got an email from Ebay saying their are lifting my selling limit of only 100 items, so I can now list the rest of the stuff I thought I had to wait with until next month. This includes a lot of Blood Rage minis (perfect for Norse), including limited edition Kickstarter ones, some various characters for RPG games, and some more Warhammer miniatures that did not get sold last month.

*****

Now this is a bit of a different thing altogether, but seeing as the majority of the models on sale were bought with the WAP armies in mind, I'm sure this can be of interest to some of you. Last week I cleaned out a ton of old Warhammer that I no longer have any use - or indeed space - for any more, and this week I am doing the same, but mainly for historical miniatures and other fantasy games.

As such, if you play one of my unofficial army books and you are in need of some fitting models, I now have a pretty big selection up for sale on Ebay that I am auctioning off (unfortunately they won't let me list more than 100 things a month, so the rest will have to wait for next month). So, if you currently are or plan to collect either Araby, Albion, Bretonnia, Cathay, Nippon, Kislev, Dogs of War, Estalia, Halflings, Norse, Pirates of Sartosa, Empire, Vampire Counts, Slaanesh Daemons, Dark Elves or High Elves, you can find suitable things for them in the link below:

Orcs and Goblins 8th Ed 1.01 out now!

Reckon this update should have been out a month ago, but I've really been focused on the main rules as well as working on the Empire, Dwarfs and Vampire Counts lately. But anyway, this update changes the following:

  • New Rare Unit: Orc Brutes (W2 orcs, a mini-Big Boss unit essentially).
  • New Monster Mount: Maw-Crusher (from AoS).
  • You may take one unit of Big 'Uns for each Orc Warboss of the same type in your army.
  • Fix Skullmucha statline bug.
  • Goblins still Fear Elves with an Orc Bully.
  • Fixed Arachnarok points cost for Shamans.
  • Clarified that Size Matters makes Orcs ignore Panic from Goblins and Snotlings.
  • Snotling Pump Wagon strength bug fixed.
  • Snotlings do not counts towards minimum core.
  • Added smoke bombs to Nasty Skulkers. 

This will likely be the last complete army book update for 8th ed. 9th ed version will be released soon.
