They want to have a inside look from gamers how they find the GHB needs to be tweaked!

I've submitted my comments, and I see a few of my friends have too.   My group seem to be keen for more Narrative play stuff, and less focus on matched play

I made a comment on someone, to have multiple versions of a battleplan for 1k, 2k and maybe 2,5k, so the 4x4 or 4x6 tables are used

The room I made for my hobby was planned fora 6x4 table but on completion it looks a 4x4 would be more optimal. Anyone playing AOS on 4x4's and what size of army would be good considering the skirmish style of AOS

I don't (and many others with me) consider AoS a skirmish game.

But to your question.. 1k would suit a 4x4 while a 2k would suit a 6x4 table and I think the GHB even mentions a 8x4 for 2,5k points.
And in my local GW store we only play on 4x4 and usually 1k or 1,5k so that is fine

Awesome! Thanks cause that would work out better for the layout. And I like the idea AOS isn't skirmish! I have pretty much fleshed out fantasy 2k armies of high elves, goblins and orks plus empire so that would great.

You can ask ten different people and get ten different answers on what is and isn't a skirmish game.  I care little for the difference.  To me there are games I enjoy, and games I don't.   Age of Sigmar is in the games I DO enjoy.

Possibly true and I agree, there should be games you enjoy or don't..

As for my own definition of a skirmish game.. It would be individual models that move around like: Mordheim, Frostgrave and 40K Killteam

Anyway back on topic, I would really like to see what this asking around will bring!

I just call it mass skirmish (which is basically a battle :laugh:) since it's flexible enough for any amount of models you want to use.

Anyway, any changes are fine with me as long as they keep close to the first book. No need for any huge leaps so soon.  Also want more battlelines and bigger narrative focus.

Already on pre-order, but it's finally here. 

Anyone have any opinions on what to expect, or hope for from GHB2?

(and I don't mean bring back WFB)

Well from what I gathered yet (not much after my vacation I need to get back up to speed.. mostly deprived of information for the past 10 days) I really like the allies idea and more faction specific bonuses coming
