I am more excited for what I can use in the 6th army than what is coming. The Gryphon Legion and Winged Lancers models are too close, so if I use the bear riders on 50x50 and double the wounds, they would make a cool Gryphon Legion instead of the old models

Isn't that the game that only exists in pictures?

I imagined Stirland to support the Emperor in Altdorf and therefore side with Riekland etc. After all, they seem to reason along the lines that if Talabecland say go, we say no!
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

Been pondering this today and wondered whether any new Empire stuff for the Old World will also be crossover with AoS 'Freeguild'. This is mainly because I have some duplicate bits and bobs and it's a personal dilemma whether to splash them all now on my Wissenlanders or whether to bide my time and keep some in reserve for potential kitbashing with anything new to come a few years down the line...

Annoyingly I'm also once again second-guessing my choice of round bases but hey-ho, they're a visual collection not a gaming army so I need to keep reminding myself of that!

I know this has been discussed a little bit previously but my concern is more that the Empire won't get much attention beyond a few characters and heroes, with the rank and file remaining as they are now...

Hmm

Do we know if Solland is still alive and kicking at the time of this 'revival' of the Old World?

I don't remember the years they said this would cover (and am too lazy to google it :-P) and whether it's before or after the destruction in the South?...

Visually, they still look better on squares ;)

Naa I have to disagree, hence the decision in the first place. People always say a mini has a 'golden angle' where it looks best and sometimes that's really hard to line up in relation to the square base. In that respect roundies have the aesthetic upper hand IMO though I do plan on getting/making movement trays that will have flat edges for when they're on display.

Anyway - we digress :biggriin:

Solland's end came in 1707

The origins of The Time of The Three Emperors was in 1152, its actual start was in 1547, while in 1750 there were 4 emperors for a wee bit, and its end came in 2304 when Magnus the Pious brought all of the provinces in underneath one Empire.

The setting is post Vampire Wars and pre-Great War so no Solland.

Ah well, nevermind eh. I think I've decided to hang on to a few of the rarer bits I have in my bits box in anticipation of hopefully kitbashing with whatever comes along in the future so maybe instead of Sollanders I'll drift towards one of the other provinces I quite like, maybe Hochland or Averland perhaps.

Sourced for you:

"The Old World will gather up all our favourite mechanics from the 3rd edition to the 8th edition** and add new elements where needed to create something deeply familiar yet fresh and new.

** The 1st and, to some extent, 2nd editions were more of a roleplaying game with miniatures than a tabletop war game, with Warhammer Fantasy Battle as we know it truly being born to the world with its 3rd edition."

Hopefully they leave most of 8th out of it. there's a reason the game died there.

Gankom posted this elsewhere, although looks like they are talking about "units", and so here we go ...

Seems like there's definitely an effort for expanding into Cathay.
