Overview of changes from Warlord 1 to Warlord 2
Posted 28 July 2009 - 08:40 AM
Things NOT in WL 2.0 that were in previous versions of the game:
25% merc rule
Adepts & Grunts (They are all just Soldiers now)
Army sublists (replaced with Faction Doctrines)
Buying spells (A completly new magic system allows you to pick your spells during the game - the cost of which is already included in the cost of the spellcaster)
Coup de Grace (Tough checks now happen at the end of the Fight Action)
Defensive Magic (replaced with a simple Counterspell system)
Elevation adding to ranged attack ranges
Elites to soldiers ratio
Freelance Companies (Everyone has to pick a faction)
Leaving downed models (dead or not quite dead) on the battlefield
Rear facing (every side of the model is treated the same)
Warlord requirement in list construction for large games
Things that are in WL 2 but the rules have changed:
AOE is done in Diameter now instead of Radius
Chain of Command for army building (now just need 1 non-sergeant if 3 or more leaders & leaders cannot lead soldiers of higher point cost)
Dwarven Griffon is now on a Large base instead of a Giant (this was the only base change I believe, and was done to fend off a large price increase, as we can replace the 2" metal base with a 1.5" plastic one)
Leaving btb with an enemy (if you are bigger than the enemy, you can break away for free)
Ranged attacks now use range bands of Normal Range and Extended Range
Reach now allows an attack rather than giving a bonus to others
Support bonuses (you get a flat +1 if there are 3 or more models in B2B)
The definition of what constitutes B2B contact - any physical contact between bases is good (even corner-to-corner)
The meaning of the Troop Capacity notation (minimum soldiers - maximum soldiers / max elites) (leader isn't included in those numbers)
Warmaster (Every model gets all of their attacks during Defensive Strikes)
You can now move through friendly models

You can find that list right... HERE
I'm going to lock this one up for now. If Gus needs to add in anything new, he can always unlock it and make the addition(s) as necessary

... Pay no heed to proud thoughts, famous champion. Now the flowering of your strength is but for a while. After a while, the time will suddenly come that disease or the sword's edge will cut off your power. Either fire's grasp or flood's surge or blade's bite or spear's flight. Or vicious age, or the flash of your eyes will gutter and burn out! It will be all at once, great campaigner, that death will overpower you.
It's terrifying! Without enough caffeine your body undergoes these hours of partial paralysis and hallucinations! :shudder:
