New Albion update out now!

This takes care of some bugs and clears up the descriptions of some things, as follows:

  • Gaelic Fury leadership penalty is now only affected when taking Break tests, not every turn.
  • Clarified description for the flying Chariot magic item.
  • Re-done the effects of White Hilt.
  • Elemental power is now an augment spell.
  • Fenbeasts can be included if you have a Druid.

Warhammer: Albion proper 8th ed update out now!

Finally finished! This is a pretty hefty update, containing nothing less than 18 new pages. Gameplay-wise, the army might be a little weaker with slightly more expensive troops and the loss of Devastating Charge, but Albion should now be a lot better accustomed to 8th edition. And for those of you who prefer Scribd instead of Issuu, Albion is finally back on the website!

New features are:

- Extended history for Albion, including Dark Shadows and the history of the Gaels.
- A timeline of Albion.
- Completely revised geography section.
- New units: Hunters and Centaurs.
- New Special Characters: Dural Durak, Morrigan and Connor McFeud.
- Completely revised Magic Item section.
- Various rules changes to bring the army up to date.
- Full colour update (with some tinted images).

And as usual, let me know of any bugs you find. Hope you like it!

Details for upcoming Kingdoms of Ind update

Also known as "the book that was never finished" (by me at least). Well, this summer I aim to change that. Ind will finally have a complete background section with history, geography, and a decent amount of society. It won't be a huge tome, but they will get around 25 pages or so to describe the faction in more detail.

As far as the army list goes, it will see a pretty large expansion in terms of units. At the moment, these additions will be the following:

Vishkanya (assassin character)
Rajputs (basic infantry)
Urumi Swordsmen (basic infantry)
Snake Swarms (swarms)
Thuggees (skirmishing main line unit)
Bengal Cavalry (MC)
Ganeshas (MI)
Lore of Eternal Truth (spell lore)

I would also like to be possibly expand upon their mythological units with more options. So for those well versed in Hindu mythology, what other creatures not already in the book would you like to see make an entrance?

Do note that the Kingdoms of Ind are scheduled sometime after Albion and Sartosa, so do not expect this book for a few months still!

Development Update: Sartosa

Yes, this book has not been forgotten, even if it was announced about half a year ago! I have been working on it quite a lot these past two days, and have finished the main background section except for half of the timeline. From the looks of it, the book will be about 90 pages, which is quite a lot considering it's rather limited subject matter. It will also be really nice on the eyes, utilizing some of the graphics from GW's Dreadfleet game for a really professional look.

Rules are about half-finished at the moment, and will stay that way until the 5th of June when my co-author Stefan Wolf will be available to discuss them. This is the first cooperative book I've made since Dogs of War, so it might take a while to go through all nagging, arguments and verbal pie throwing (slightly exaggerated) until it's finished, but it should hopefully see a release some time in July. Until then, you will still have Albion to look forward to.

Current Progress:

Contents/credits - in progress
Society - done
History - done
Timeline - done
Geography - done
Bestiary - almost done,
Special characters - half-way done
Spell Lore - done
Magic Items - done
Army list - in progress
