Warhammer Old World


Over on the Warhammer Community site they have announced how Warhammer Old World will be released.

They won’t be doing a huge launch boxed set, instead, in the first instance they will be releasing two army boxes, Tomb Kings of Khemri, and The Kingdom of Bretonnia. These each contain a 1250 point army.

It will be interesting to see how these are priced, considering each box contains nearly a hundred miniatures, and a huge army centrepiece. You also get the 352-page hardback Warhammer: The Old World rulebook.

As well as the boxed sets the rulebook will be available separately.

The rulebook will also be available separately. This weighty 352-page tome features over 70 pages of background on the World of Legend, plus Core and Advanced rules for the game, an explanation of the Winds of Magic and rules for casting spells, a gallery of armies painted by the ’Eavy Metal studio, and rules for building armies and setting up your battlefields.

I do like how the two army books are called Forces of Fantasy and Ravening Hordes.

Forces of Fantasy is a 192-page book covering five factions: the Dwarfen Mountain Holds, the Empire of Man, the Kingdom of Bretonnia, the Wood Elf Realms, and the High Elf Realms. Ravening Hordes contains all your Evil factions – it’s a 160-page  containing similar material for the Orc and Goblin Tribes, the Warriors of Chaos, the Beastmen Brayherds, and the Tomb Kings of Khemri.

Forces of Fantasy was the name of the first Warhammer (1st Edition) supplement. Whilst Ravening Hordes was the army list for second edition. I bought both of those back in the day!

I am tempted by the Tomb Kings of Khemri boxed set, as I always liked the idea of an undead skeleton army. I had some metal skeletons back in the day.

I am also thinking of rebooting my original Dwarf army as well. Then again I always liked Orcs and Goblins.

As for a release date, no idea.
