I'm looking forward to learning Xanth's and Oxycutor's views on the new release. :icon_cool:

I'll try and grab a copy in June. I'll be reviewing it for sure, but right now that cash is a bit tight.

I'm really optimistic about this release though. The artworks look really nice! :blush:

I've pre-ordered.  I think I get a chance to get the .pdfs in June, and physical copy isn't until July.

That said, they said they will have stuff to show at Warhammer Fest, and I'm going to that next week, so I might be able to find out some detail, or even have a flick through of the rulebook, if I'm really lucky

Would be really awesome to hear some snippets from that trip. :blush:

AoS RPG will be a completely separate game, not a supplement for WFRP.

I'm actually hoping for it to be a successful, interesting and world-expanding game. Something which would really helped improving the AoS.

sure I agree...I'm glad its a separate game and not a supplement thanks for that correction Oxy-dawg

I've pre-ordered the Rulebook + Starter set. Now Cubicle 7 has announced that the main game will be in July and the Starter will arrive in September... That really rustled my jimmies. :dry:

So, this game is delayed a bit.  Was due out in June, with physical copied in July.    in the end, a not quite complete preview pdf was released to pre-orders, about a week ago.

And, as a pre-order customer, I've got the preview copy.   

I think I mostly like this new edition.  Apart from delays, and so on, I can't think of anything so far that I would try and "fix" with houserules.  I'm looking forward to the completed edition, and to what they plan to add to the range down the line.

I've also recieved the preview.

The combat is strange now, as even if you lose, something can happen in your favor.

The elves are absurdly OP. The dwarves, who are best craftsmen lore-wise, are horrible at crafting.

The bestiary is very small. They will probably release a full bestiary later on.

I like the career progression rules. It's nice that you can stay indifinetly in the same career through the entire game.

I'm waiting for the final product, then I will review it.

I haven't tried playing it out yet, to see how well it works, but yeah, combat could see a winner from who failed the least worst.   I think i'll judge once we've played it properly.

Having begun converting characters from 2ndEd to 4thEd, yeah, Elves are very strong, but fortunately very rare, and will the lack of Fate and Resilience balance them out - again, will wait until we've tried it out.  I wouldn't say Dwarfs will be bad at crafting, average maybe, but perhaps a trade() skill or craftsmand () talent should have been available as a species skill or talent.  I'd have to re-read the section on Endeavours in the down-time bit to see how it works.

I find the attributes many careers get are a bit random, and sometimes obvious ones are not in that career.   And quite a few careers have been lost - Runesmiths in partcular.  I do wonder if we might get more career classes and careers in future supplements.  I do think it will be easier to make NPCs for townsfolk at varying ability with this system though

Agreed, judge the final version.

IMO dwarves should not be average at crafting. They are known as the greatest artisans of the world, except for the elves, but they do use a lot of magic in their endeavors, so...
