What to do With Fantasy
Even though fantasy isn’t my favorite genre by a long shot, I still have more or less three armies for Warhammer, Beastmen, Empire and my 40k Daemon army and they are all collecting dust.
The club I’m part of has started talking to another club to get some competitions and gaming going between the clubs and one of the games they play is Warhammer. They are currently playing 8th but are looking at the 9th Age fan edition.
Thinking Hat On
So with that I’ve started thinking a bit on what I would like to do with my collection.
I started reading the 9th Age rules and so far I’m not that impressed so I started looking at old WHFB editions (3rd in perticular) but I doubt I would find anyone here to play it with me.
So I continued to search for other games I could use them in. First I found Kings of War, which I’ve looked into before but I can’t really remember much of what I found out back then but I’m going to read the rules again and see how it feels.
I did find some other games that could have potential:
- Impetus Fantasy, a Impetus version. I’ve never played the original so I don’t really have much of an idea how it plays so I’m going to read through it as well.
- Pike, Shotte And Sorcery, fan based version of WLG’s Pike & Shotte.
- Shadow Storm, fan based Hail Ceasar version, which is also a WLG game.
- Warmaster 28mm, I’ve seen photos of it and there are some information but I don’t have big enough armies for it.
The one I think have the most potential is Shadow Storm, it has more finished materials and has been given an OK by Rick Priestley and WLG. So yea this is the first to get researched.
If anyone has any experience with alternatives to WFB I would love to hear them.
