Warhammer: Hobgoblins proper 8th ed update out now!

Well I said "a while", and it's been one and a half week, which I figured was long enough (plus I had more time than expected with Rome II being a total disappointment).

Anyway, this update contains the following:
  • New units: Spear Chukkas, Giants, Scorpion Riders (replacing the Sabretusk Riders), Deathclaws, Thunderbirds and Dread Maws (replacing the Deathworm).
  • New special character: Hobgobla Khan, the Scourge of the Steppes. Gorduz Backstabber has been removed since he serves the Chaos Dwarfs rather than the Hegemony.
  • Improved layout and formatting throughout.
  • History consistent with other army books.
  • Timeline added.
  • Full colour art (with some tinted images).
  • Lots of balance changes.
  • New army-wide special rules.
  • New spell lore.
The new version clocks in at 66 pages, so it's quite a bit longer than the old one. File size is also down to just about 6 MB. Enjoy, and as usual, let me of the bugs that have surely cropped up!

  1. Have you tried the Warhammer Fantasy mod for Medieval 2 Total War: Kingdoms? It's called Rage of the Dark Gods(used to be Call of Warhammer).

    1. I tried to try it, but the damn thing wouldn't install. I might give it another go in the future. Hopefully CA won't screw up with Warhammer: Total War later too...

    2. If you're using Gigantus' version it should all go smoothly. Here's a link:

  2. hi m8 few mistakes so far

    scorp riders seem very cheap must be a mistake

    dread maw has a few spelling errors and seems way overpriced
    please bring back the old big worm

    love the new lore

    1. No way, how could MC's for 18pts each possibly be too cheap? ;)
      Will take care of it, must have completely skipped over that one.

      I will price down the Dread Maw as well, the pricing is the same as the Forge World one, but I too raised my eyebrow at the coast. I don't intend to bring back the old Deathworm though, the Dread Maw does the same thing, and is an official monster obviously based on the Deathworm to begin with.

      I will have a patch up later today.
