It makes me wonder how much money they have to work with. Cities of Sigmar took up that niche. [–]downquark5 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children), Look at the lore between warhammer fantasy and age of sigmar and make up your own mind, [–]Yobalt 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (26 children). The constant marine wank pushed me away from 40k for now. Storm Ground is coming next year, and further away there's the Age of Sigmar RTS from Frontier. The faction identities are top notch however, and I really love how distinct and original they are, compared to the more mundane and historical parodies that Fantasy was (though often great parodies in the case of Empire for example). It’s kinda sensory overload for me tbh. LotR probably was at the lower declining point when reports showed 40k holding the line compared to when it sold like crazy during the movies. is permitted, but it must be balanced out by a much greater level of non-promotion participation in reddit - the rule of thumb is no more than 10% of your submissions may be promotional. Age of Sigmar's lore was just too far and unnecessary, and the complete change from something a that was overall a more gritty and 'normal' Fantasy style to one that's just full of high-fantasy stuff and overelaborate designs and such is also something that's offputting to me. We got the German empire, the French, the English isles, we got Africa with Egyptian skeletons and mummies as well as 'Araby' and so on and so forth. They'll throw out the actual rules for gameplay convenience. [–]beenoc 8 points9 points10 points 3 months ago (6 children). 2 years have passed and they got nothing that’s unheard of for “poster boys”. Small range means easier to manage project too while waiting for more sub-faction releases. That's why the timeline is in Ages as the times are all over the place and can't be specifically placed from the sheer distance between places and variety of celestial bodies be they the wild suns of Ghur running through the sky like beasts or the Shyish underworlds going by hourglass mountains that vanish over a day and reform the next. Although the reveal trailer definitely wasn't on the level of say, a Dawn of War reveal. [–]Aunvilgod 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (5 children). Reddit Warhammer.

Submissions should be for the purpose of informing or initiating a discussion, not just with the goal of entertaining viewers. Because being popular means that nobody can find it awful. Always the best choice with games. Those games had trailers done by Blur studios who are amongst the best in the business for that so it's understandable a small studio didn't meet that standard. No Man's Sky and Mass Effect Andromeda NEVER FORGET. AoS is very much Warcraft-y, especially with those damn new high elves. Age of Sigmar is the current fantasy tabletop miniatures game from Games Workshop, having supplanted Warhammer Fantasy Battles in 2015, with a second edition in 2018, and is one of the most popular miniatures games in the world. The game will have the Stormcast Eternals as its heroic faction, going head to head against Nagash’s undead Nighthaunt. Like right now we got news of the demigoddess of shadow Morathi pushing forward with her plot to become a full goddess while Death invades hell itself at a sub-realm known as the Eight-points putting Chaos on the backstep as the undead legions battle the daemon hordes and flay their warriors to make bone forts to keep the ground their invasion gained while several other big plots happen elsewhere as well between gods and mortals resettling their reclaimed homes. Turn-based strategy. The Mortal Realms are bubbles of reality floating in the Warp. I got Fantasy, 40K (Dark Eldar) and AoS (Idoneth and might get Lumineth). I would be very down for something like Gears Tactics, if that's what this is, [–]Nuke_A_Cola 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children). I feel this. I honestly couldn't tell you - They probably could have worked AoS ruleset into Fantasy, but I think that would also have disenfranchised a good part of the remaining Fantasy base anyhow, considering that the jump from rank & file to a more skirmish kinda of style with lose formations and such. [–]Funnydead 8 points9 points10 points 3 months ago (7 children). Turn based is pretty cool that's got me curious, however if its a MOBA then HELL BLOODY NO. from Deepkin sea aelves on flying sharks, Ossiarch bonereapers being a mix of mongolian-persian-japanese bone golems warrior legions and now mega titans and chaos fire samurai Flame Scions to name just a handful of amazing things. I was really getting my hopes up for an Age of Sigmar version of Dawn of War, but that's really not the vibe I'm getting from this. [–]TheVoidDragon 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago* (0 children). Steam has tags and the ones on the game seem very accurate. Instead realmoscopes are synchronized with the god's power in the realm center so south is always towards the innerlands where the magic is stabilized. The Empire, Bretonians, Dwarfs, High Elves, Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs & Goblins, Tomb Kings and Vampire Counts especially-- hardly anything in those factions was particularly visually unique from what other people were making models of before they launched their game. I like the Lumineth hats myself. “ Yeah enjoy the space marine spam in 40k while age of Sigmar actually doesn’t spam Stormcasts.”. 3. ... No sharing or requesting illegal content. [–]Aunvilgod 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children). Even beyond the different tastes in aethetics, the level of detail and engineering that goes into new models is astounding. Once the first General's Handbook came out it pretty much fixed all the complaints most people had and the game has been pretty solid since then. [–]beenoc 13 points14 points15 points 3 months ago (14 children). According to Steam it is a turn-based tactics game. It was mostly the lack of points that put people off because once that was fixed with Matched Play it shot up to 30% of GW's profits.

So this is the gasket games game. [–]Helpful-Definition-3 10 points11 points12 points 3 months ago* (8 children), Yeah enjoy the space marine spam in 40k while age of Sigmar actually doesn’t spam Stormcasts. Not Teclis though. The stakes are so fucking huge that I can’t even care about them. Warhammer Fantasy (WHFB) = The Fantasy Warhammer most people know about and remember. Sure, undead mummies and gryphons were a thing, but in the same vein there were so many blurbs written on how said grpyhons were wild beasts, where to tame them.

I think I like the very "Grounded" aspect of the high fantasy that WFB had. We have straight from authors mouths that Warhammer Fantasy novels sold extremely poorly while AoS are doing bounds better. r/WarhammerUnderworlds. Age of Sigmar = Canon successor to Warhammer Fantasy. Some promotional submitting (posting your own projects, articles, etc.) 57.0k members in the ageofsigmar community. It will launch on Switch in 2021. A very large amount of the Total War + Vermintide Warhammer fans have never actually given much thought about the Tabletop aspect. Thats more or less the people who I see most angry at it. You have one of the oldest, most influential fantasy settings in the world, why blow it up (in a really poorly done way, to boot)? [–]Funnydead 9 points10 points11 points 3 months ago* (16 children). Here’s an overview of the game, along with the debut trailer: Conquer the Mortal Realms! Factions that were only marginally in the game like Araby, Tilea/Estalia, Cathay, Ind, Nippon-- all based on real life places and real life armies except with magic, so they couldn't be made. But yeah, I guess that comparison came off of other types of paints and got hit by telephone effect. Better to look at it as it's own game ala Bloodbowl. I'm not really a fan of the fantasy marines but this is interesting. Graphics don't look great. [–]agamemnon2 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children), I collect 80s Rogue Teader models, so for me the technical excellence of modern miniatures is somewhat wasted. Tabletop is a niche compared to the video games really. WHF was doing poorly due to being mismanaged in a way that resulted in little attention given to it and therefore lower interest, and because of an overcomplication of the tabletop side in terms of army pricing and such that just made it hard to get into. Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Storm Ground Trailer (youtube.com), [–]WinterSpark21[S] 37 points38 points39 points 3 months ago (17 children). In addition, piracy was rampant because since GW had basically pirated all the setting from other generic fantasy they had no real way to enforce copyright. So it'll be in a year or two they start releasing humans matching their descriptions in the lore as the tribes and kingdoms that evolved in the realms. Compasses too work strangely as there's no locked directions. Even if stormcasts only share aesthetic (and fairly superficial at that) themes with SM. The Stormcast are these weird armored angels, it's not really the same as my old State Troops in their spear blocks and militia detachments. [–]AllegiantGeneralWolf 33 points34 points35 points 3 months ago (15 children). Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground > General Discussions > Topic Details. It tickles my fancy. Yes, but a different narrative than Warhammer: Fantasy Battles. After playing, I split the Blackreach box with my roommate. It’s literally a continuation the world that was before is constantly mentioned. But I adore that the elves for once are using big ass hammers, and that instead of traditionally elf creatures they got a giant battle cattle. A new game set within the Warhammer universe was announced at Gamescom Opening Night Live.Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Storm Ground looks a lot like a new MOBA, and is set to launch sometime in 2021. I care about the destruction of my favortie hobby, [–]TexacoV2 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children). People criticize old fantasy for being too generic, but that sort of makes it stand out when so much modern fantasy games go for the over the top WoW design. They could have kept the lore, added a few more new things to it, and made the rule changes they wanted to bring it to a smaller scale game, while still offering the option to play something similar to what there was before alongside it. I understand that mechanically it might be a "better" game (which ignores that skirmish and rank and file are inherently two different kinds of tabletop war games) and that some people might like the way modern fantasy stuff looks, but it irks me that any nay-saying about AoS is just "lol u mad bro? With any luck, in 2040 when AoS is awesome and really fleshed out, they won't say "time for End Times 2! Then I got some Tau which I later sold, and then Dark Eldar. Unfortunately, no specific release date has been announced just yet. It doesn't help that the Fantasy army I was building at the time of the End Times was Empire, who were only kind of brought over to the new game, as "Cities of Sigmar" I think they called them, but who have received, to my knowledge, zero new models since then, instead having their old range whittled down over time with nowt to replace it. AoS is custom made for a new revitalized tabletop franchise. High fantasy, magic is far more common and less dangerous, cosmic background, has quite a bit of influence from Norse mythology (cosmic realms etc). [–]BaronKlatz 10 points11 points12 points 3 months ago (0 children). Interestingly Faeit insiders had 7th edition sales even below Gotrek and Felix book sales. This is Storm Ground, a world of legends, heroes, hellish creatures and fearsome battles. The subreddit dedicated to all things Warhammer Age of Sigmar. What’s the gameplay suppose to be like? In last year's annual report, the CEO let slip a point that AoS, despite its unpopularity, had already outdid Warhammer Fantasy's sales for years, just to show how bad things had been. That gives me some hope. I'd say GW is only below Bandai when it comes to models. Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground launches early 2021 for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One. It was actually because Kings of War was launching a 3rd edition and they needed something to keep from getting blocked out of rank-and-file tabletop completely. I love Age of Sigmar but you haven't told me jack jack so I don't understand them starting pre orders. Please report posts containing spoilers unless they are hidden using the following method or are inside a thread clearly labeled as containing spoilers.

I don't really mind if it's a bit older looking if the game is as fun as DOW 1&2. [–]agamemnon2 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (2 children). More games in the Mortal Realms are always a joy to see. Frontier has exclusive rights to develop and publish an RTS for both PC and consoles based on Age of Sigmar, and plans to release a game in fiscal year 2023. They just parrot the angry oldhammer crowd even though they never touched a model themselves. It's a game I've never seen anyone play, but I guess people just wanted LotR shit on their shelves.

High fantasy, magic is far more common and less dangerous, cosmic background, has quite a bit of influence from Norse mythology (cosmic realms etc). People who actually played Warhammer know damn well it was killed off for a reason. This angry Oldhammerite can boil most of his dislike into one thing: There isn't a human faction. It'd be fair to say "they hate it because it's different" but because "it's awful" doesn't mean anything for one of the most popular tabletop wargames in the world. Edit: ah, it was black spray primer. Yea I would love to see some gameplay. I really, truly wanted to like the Lumineth, but the hat designs(yes, basically just the hats. It's not even a setting.

[–]bobman02 7 points8 points9 points 3 months ago (1 child). Yeah I remember last year there was rumors of Focus working on it. Because locations. IT doesn't make sense AT ALL. Good narrative flow on how they rocked the realms with their undead blitzkrieg toppling empires and fortresses as their millions just ghosted through walls. Part of the reason why Age of Sigmar was created was not only to make Fantasy play more like its more popular counterpart WarHammer 40K and thus be more beginner-friendly-- but also because so much of WarHammer Fantasy was a hodgepodge of effectively public domain elements on the surface level. Their creative process of create cool things and then fit it into the setting couldn't work with such an old setting. facebook; twitter; pinterest; reddit; tumblr; discord; Search [–]kuroyume_cl 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (3 children). 1st ED of Age of Sigmar was really bad and put alot of people off. I can't relate to Stormcast at all (I've tried reading their lore, but their grim personalities make most Space Marines seem warm and cuddly), and the AoS takes on fantasy cliches like dwarves and elves likewise leave me very cold. Age of Sigmar has become an enourmous success that Fantasy never got close to, and this success, along with the success of 8th ed. Warhammer has been around for decades, longer than most modern video game tropes and series. Gives oldhammer fans something while cementing AoS' mainline place by giving it a Horus Heresy. Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Storm Ground Hey guys! I’m glad I can enjoy all 3 settings while still identifying their faults. [–]Helpful-Definition-3 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago* (0 children). Join. Video game guys are Lore guys mostly. Ending the old world was weak shit. Dawn of War II was the game that really got me into the hobby. Just wish they’d release more info about it already. The previous CEO thought the best way forward was to start over, and we all know that AoS didn't start out great. I won the first game I ever played, and could play without being coached by game 2. Even the Eastern Beastmen which would have truly been unique were based on various public domain Asian mythological creatures. It's all explained in good detail in the second edition Core Book. I am not even sure their tusky Chaos Dwarfs or Mongolian Hobgoblins were fully copyrightable. I hope and think that someday Age of Sigmar will be as good a setting as the World that Was; I just would have rather they spend those decades making their existing setting even better. 40k/30k basically held the line for all of GW in the last few years, since AoS, and before that Warhammer Fantasy. All Discussions Screenshots Artwork Broadcasts Videos News Guides Reviews. Not many have looked into what Age of Sigmar even is. So it must be the Stormcasts. ;). Yeah I could see it selling consistent as a collectors item as gamewise it was near non-existent until 2016 when they revitalized it with the Hobbit and more focused Forge World sales(despite the older LotR rulebooks being the best they ever made with elements leaking into AoS rules). [–]agamemnon2 -1 points0 points1 point 3 months ago (2 children). They're an acquired taste. Even if HoS are the exact oppositve of Ultramarines in philosophy, background and tactics.

Usually the Stormcast strike chambers (the paladins in gold plate armor and wings instead of tabards and magic staves who are Sacrosanct mage-paladins) take on physical threats like Destruction and Chaos with their gleaming shieldwalls and dragons. [–]agamemnon2 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children). [–]Psydonkity 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (1 child), 40k/30k basically held the line for all of GW in the last few years. Still, fuck Games Workshop for killing Warhammer Fantasy. The lore for them is excellent, though, which makes my decision all the more painful. [–]agamemnon2 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (3 children), Putting the entire franchise below paint thinner sales, GW doesn't actually sell paint thinner, so this part at least is untrue :-P, [–]BaronKlatz 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago* (1 child), They do have air caste thinners at least. Become the commander of one of the extraordinary factions of Warhammer Age of Sigmar - a dark-fantasy universe where immortal knights ride heavenly stardrakes to eradicate Death across a multitude of realms. [–]defeatinvictory 8 points9 points10 points 3 months ago (0 children). Less the complaints and more that Kings of War announced their 3rd edition at that time and GW needed something to keep from being blocked completely out of the rank-and-file tabletop genre. They already announced a RTS for PC (and a license for other consoles) in 2023. [–]LonelyGoats 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (0 children), [–]Barbarossa_5 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (1 child), I just really dislike the aesthetics of it. Within the Age of Sigmar, "immortal knights ride heavenly stardrakes to eradicate Death across numerous realms", and you'll be able to do the same in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground… I really don't like those either. Those video games generated a lot of interest in a setting that no longer existed at all. If you want to do pre orders show us some gameplay first or atleast a brief on what the game actually is outside of buzz words like customizable armies and open ended campaign. Maybe, there's a few awesome screenshots out now and the answer to NightHaunt looks like call in the Sacrosanct. Destroying the setting was not necessary in order make a more successful game. Also Teclis’s face) are a little too goofy for my taste and the range is far too small right now. Seriously. Either way the game fans are also lore fans.

A lot of AoS haters don't even know anything about it, gameplay or lorewise. In this case it's entirely possible. Low Fantasy setting (should be noted that the tabletop game tended to focus on the rare major battles so gives a skewed perspective of the general background), magic is rare and dangerous, Medieval-Renaissance setting with some wacky steampunk thrown in, very grimdark. Apparently sold more than WHF and 40k combined over the period of their entire lives according to Priestly.

[–]BaronKlatz 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children). This is Storm Ground, a world of legends, heroes, hellish creatures and fearsome battles. Modern GW has gotten very over the top and many of their large monster and character models in particular are nearly impossible to transport intact, which is a major pet peeve of mine. It wouldn't surprise me if that would have been even more successful, as I doubt many people went "Finally, the lore is gone" and were only interested because of that. It is a fantasy setting.

Might affect the gameplay if you can't bring your full strength because half of it misses the ethereal NightHaunt wraith armies. More like Xcom though?

Design based on /r/FlatBlue created by /u/creesch. I got bored enough to give AoS a shot by reading some of the novels. Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground. I am one of those people who played all those video games but never played the tabletop, but i dont actually have any ill-feeling toward AoS. But yeah, they jumped the gun way too early. Still Fantasy universe but VERY VERY different. I've been in this hobby since 1995, and I get the feeling it isnt for me anymore. While Fantasy as a setting is amazing, it was subpar as a game - Age of Sigmar is an amazing game, with a good setting that can evolve into something great, and perhaps even amazing, given time and dedication. My dislike of Age of Sigmar comes from the lore and the situation that resulted in it. If anything, I am more confused by it since it pretty much seems more like a new universe entirely that have some similar races as warhammer fantasy and the brand on top of it, as oppose to be a continuation of fantasy, even if the lore tried to connect the dot. The trailer wasn't the beautiful pre rendered masterpiece that we got with the dawn of war games, nor a glimpse at actual gameplay. :), [–]LeConnor 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (1 child). Even a niche videogame tends to sell better than many wargaming figures or rulesets. Only if it drops in profits as bad as Wfb did at 5%. It's a shame. And really, I had it comparatively good, compared to the poor suckers who built Tomb Kings and Bretonnian armies. After Vermintide 1 came out, I got into the setting, however, and that's my big criticism of AoS. That and it being made by their premium branch Forge World, their director Tony Cottrell behind it saying it's not made to compete with AoS as a Horus Heresy style side-game makes it so it's not a good idea to call it Wfb. For examples of quality discussion posts we'd like to see in our subreddit, please review this page. So other companies were pretty much legally free to produce models that were completely indistinct from what fit right at home in various armies. I myself don’t have all that much beef with Age of Sigmar, but I do see you guys make a lot of assumptions for why people dislike it.
