Regarding the "Age of Sigmar"

So, as some of you probably have seen, images of the new "Sigmarites" are out on the internet, and I'm decidedly in the camp that is not positive about their look, or the round bases. So, for those who wonder, I will not be updating my books for Age of Sigmar, but rather stay firmly in 8th ed, maybe with a few alterations.

So long official Warhammer, it was nice while it lasted, but I'll stick to homebrew rules from now on.

Or possibly Kings of War...

Multiple updates out now!

So after a long break (and I'm still sort of on it) I did have some time to through the books and fix some things that were brought up in the comments. Now these are rather minor updates that mostly fixes bugs, but also improves some of the editing, spelling, layout and paragraphs of the books, as well as new art. I am currently working on a bigger Albion update which will add at least 2 new units, and maybe a special character too. The Bretonnia update is still taking a lot of time to finish due to the near total re-make of the layout in the background section.

The fixes and changes are as follows:

Araby:

  • Genies Wishes fixed, you now how to pass a Ld test when taking a wish or it fails.
  • Genies have Magical Attacks.
  • Janissaries do not have armour by default, can have LA. 6 pts basic. Handguns 6 pts, bows 3 pts.
  • Fixed duplicate text in background section regarding the crusades.

Cathay:

  • Celestial dragons 300 pts, lvl 1 wizard 35 pts.

Cult of Ulric:

  • Knights now have barding listed under equipment.

Kingdoms of Ind:

  • Fixed Phansigar attack value, it's now 2 like normal Champions.
  • Sowar Horsemen can have short bows instead of bows, 1 pt.

Nippon:

  • Fixed Dripping Poison stacking, it's now one per army.
  • Tengu background fixed for consistency, WS4, 1A, no longer have LA option, Katana instead of HW, 12 pts default cost, halberds 1 pt.
  • Ashigaru Bowmen have longbows instead of bows, costs 6 pts. Can no longer skirmish.
  • Shinobis taking Clan Mon counts towards magic item allowance.
  • Daimatzu Mon only applies to Katanas.
  • Batake Clan Mon no longer only applies to War Machines.
  • Fixed spelling error in the Sashimono rule.

Kislev:

  • Hawks of Miska stat line fixed in the Army list.

Kickstarter for Cathay models

In a stroke of non-endorsed commercialism, I'd like to bring the attention of Cathay fans to Watchful I Studios' Kickstarter that is currently in the making. They will create many models suitable for a Cathay army, including Fu Dogs and Terracotta Warriors, which are very hard to come by at the moment from other manufactures.
I'm a pledger myself to their project which is good on the way to be successfully funded, and you can even get a glimpse of my smiling face in the comments (if your interested in that sort of thing). Be sure to "like" their Facebook page too in order to unlock more free miniatures if you decide to pledge.

Regarding the lack of updates

Well, it's been over 3 months since my last update, and for some, it might seem like the project has died. This is not the case. However, (as I have said in the comments) I just don't have the time to work on the books right now due to other commitments (work, politics, video games, girlfriend). So, for the time being, the Warhammer Armies Project is on hold until I feel I have the time to work more on the books in proper.

I still plan to finish the Bretonnia update, though I don't know exactly when, but the other planned projects (Gnoblars, Fimir, Border Princes etc.) might not see the light of day I'm afraid. Probably not the news you have been wishing for, but that's unfortunately the situation at the moment. I will still update the already existing books and fix bugs, spelling errors and minor rules changes, and will post here whenever a book is updated with the changes, as well as update the galleries whenever I have finished painting something (with better quality pictures). A wave of smaller updates will be out soon.

In case I will not have the time to finish any new material in the future, I just want to say that it has been a very fun ride, and I hope someone else will take after me and try their hand at making their own rules based on the Warhammer universe. And much thanks for all the support, you guys (and gals) have been a large part of the reason why I have kept going for as long as I have. For now, let's bring on a new good gaming year, with a balanced number of both wins and losses!

New Albion and Estalia updates out now!

Another set of small updates here, changing the following:

Albion:

  • Nerfed Cormac Chath and Conor McFeud. The former could cause way too much damage alone, and the latter were too unkillable. Don't think I have uploaded these fixes before, though they were patched quite a while ago based on feedback.
  • Several minor text formatting fixes.
  • Fixed formatting error caused by this update (20/10).

Estalia:

  • Conquistadors now have light armour by default, can upgrade to heavy armour.
  • Genitors do not lose Fast Cavalry with LA.
  • Genitors may take spears.
  • Several minor text formatting fixes and some minor edits to the fluff.

In more interesting news, I will be making some changes regarding the release order. I've decided to scrap the release of the Mordheim characters as a stand-alone supplement, these will instead be included in the special characters book. I simply felt that it would be a bit too barren of a release to put out as a whole new document, so they should make a better fit with the already existing Special Characters. What this in effect means is that I will be pushing forward the date of the planned Bretonnia update, which I know some of you have really been looking forward too. Going to try to have it finished later this month.
