    Warlord - the state of play

    It appears the current intention is for people to buy the miniatures to paint and then play a few occasional game. At one time, there was a kickstarter for a sim but it fell flat on its face. Besides, without any support from Reaper, I doubt very much anyone will try again. Retrospectively, when Reaper launched Warlord back in 2003, I suspected that it got hurt a lot financially. I believe that the 2nd edition and its supplement were doing not too bad but far from ideal when compared to all the successful KS projects on bones. Although new releases will be exciting, you will increase the chance of play imbalance. Warlord already has 20 factions with each one having 2 to 3 different tactics. It is hard to add in something new.

    Confrontation: Classic

    People are interested in Confrontation because of the miniatures. The rules are not great. There were reasons why Rackham decided to revise 3.5 to 4.0 and made pre-painted plastics instead. The whole game system failed once. What makes people think that it can be revive again if nothing has changed?

    This is why I really don't understand. Shouldn't it be the other way around? If I was the one who started this KS project, I would pick a few factions to begin with and then add in more if funding went well.

    I always prefer metal over anything else. If this KS project is to reproduce metal figures, I would have pledged.

    Confrontation: Classic

    Initially, I had a lot of interest about this game. After years of supporting various project on KS, something do not sound right. They are not able to specify what material they used and not even the name of any specific manufacturer. The fine details of the old metal figures cannot be easily duplicated by computer scan and this raises a lot of concerns from various sculptors as posted in various forums. It also does not make any sense why it is a all or none package. I cannot come up with a reason why they cannot offer different pledges such as single fraction or rule book only. How many single players will need that many miniatures at one time? At such a high price, most if not all developers will show at least some prototypes but not this KS.
  6. Same here. The last thing everyone wants to see is a revision of the current rules since there is nothing seriously wrong with it. For your information, I believe the 2nd edition was entirely driven by some hardcore players. There will be no more change. The best we can hope is to incorporate the halflings and Razig as official armies, or to have a story that bring the the world of Taltos and Savage North together. Given the fact that there are so many models and factions already, it will take a lot of work and one's imagination to introduce a new one and add more troop type. Again, this will not happen. I don't like bones at all. All my models are metal including Deathsleet.

    Sticky Meet-up Spots

    Comparing to other game system, you don't need to spend much. It depends on what you choose. At 1000 points, the figure count can be low at 10 or more than 50.

    Campaign Engine revised

    Well done. 1300 pts in 2016. 1400 pts for 2017. Top at 1500 pts from now on?

    Bones 4 is Coming Soon!

    I really appreciate if Reaper can take the opportunity to re-introduce Warlord game with this coming KS.

    I don't believe that they will promote the game for free and Reaper is not going to pay them any commission.

    GW Announces WH40K 8th edition

    All current codices will not be compatible with the new edition. Likely, GW will make you buy new copies.

    Advice on book purchasing?

    Savage North is hard cover. It has all the rules for you to play. The main difference from the 2nd edition is the fractions listed.

    Warlord - the state of play

    The beauty of this game is that the figures do not get replaced by a newer edition. The bases remain square or rectangle. So, what was painted more than a decade ago can still be used. Not every good for the business point of view and I kind of understand why the company is not promoting the game if they are already selling well on their figures. There is no need for them to put in more resources to promote more sale. On the other hand, if I am the CEO, I would definitely take the opportunity to make a dent in the gaming world when WHFB got changed. For the long run, it is a worthwhile gamble. The loss of the online army builder is a great disappointment. That is the main reason why I kept coming back to this site to make out various theme list for fun. I shall fully support of this game if one day this company decides to promote it. For your information, my profile picture is actually taken from the figure I painted.
