I've been leading a local group of players (I deem the only one existing in Russia) since 2007, making yearly campaigns and leagues of up to 10 participants and 30+ games per season. It appears to be

Well, one way to look at it is that Reaper accomplished what they wanted with Warlord.  First edition with 10? Factions.  Second edition to fix the balance issues, along with an expansion with even mo

Me, I buy Warlord figures not for the Warlord game but because they are fun, well-sculpted, full of character, interesting, and reasonably priced.  I use them for other game play and I like them.

Well, how could fans push / encourage Warlord without stepping on Reaper's IP, strategy or prerogatives?

 

The prices for the books on Amazon be cray cray:

I haven't played beyond 300 points, trying to get my usual group to pkay something new - not to mention me getting time to play anything at all - is a pain in the arse.

Wow. It's like you're me. :(

 

Like Bryan said they don't have the manpower to push Warlord. If it's going to be pushed it needs to be done by the fans (again).

Actually he said they don't have the human resources to do anything with Warlord while they concentrate on Bones III. Thus (again) giving us (false) hope that they may give it some love at some point in the future. Maybe SOON.

Didn't we have that conversation last Kickstarter when you and I were screaming "ANHURIANS!" in tandem?

So tangentially to this conversation, and to follow up on my previous post, I got the 2e Warlord book last week (though over the holidays haven't had much time to do much with it). I saw there was a sample battle towards the back, with a fixed army list for Necropolis and Dwarfs. I was already intending to collect dwarfs anyway, and I never had an "undead" faction, so I started loading up the shopping cart with a few items (the other army I intend to collect will be Elfs, because I am a dwarf & elf fanboy...). I'll probably use some of my GW dwarfs as proxies, and maybe I'll do a batrep at some point...

 

Edit: Re -- fluff. It's hard these days to become invested in any major property as a fan, whether it is gaming related, movie related (i.e. Star Trek) or the like. Invariably, the deeper you become invested, the more disappointed you will be when it goes right off the rails. That being said, however, fluff plays an important part in determining why we play the game, beyond pushing figures together and rolling dice. Why are we here? Why are we fighting? are key questions I ask myself whenever I face off against an opponent. Good fluff and background facilitate this, makes the game more logical, and thus enhances the experience. I play Battletech from time to time, and definitely wouldn't have stuck with it for 30 years if it didn't have such deep and engrossing background fluff.

I just watched a hilarious video where some dude burned his 8th Edition Hardback Warhammer Rulebook on a hibachi. The thing took forever to burn. Sad portentous mood music playing throughout...

To be fair, if the BRB had enough Dark Elf fluff in it to contain the name "Malus Darkblade" then a hibachi is too good for it new edition or not.

The 8th edition is the one being closed out.. [?] ..and the one the nutter burned.

 

 

Getting back to Warlord. It does not need to go to a v3.0. Two is good the way it is.

 

If something new happens someday Warlord 2.1 if anything.

Dramatic, but silly.  There is nothing stopping you from playing an older version of a game if you have the friends to do it. 

 

A game is only as dead as the people's want to play it.  Heck, I still love Marvel Super Heroes and Legions of Steel.  They have been "dead" for years!

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Painted that one in 2017, but never made pictures of him. But last weekend he got a gig as a model in the photography class. So finally: Picture! Yay!
       
      I used fluorescent paints for his eye sockets, so they glow under UV-light.

      Next mini off my shelf of shame: The little mummy from the warlord familiars pack III.
       
      Only when I painted the eyes of the scarabeus I realised that the sculpt is one eyed. And then I was too lazy to add the other one. Oh, well...
       
      Just a quick paint up, enjoy!
       
      C&c welcome!

      Finished!
       
      This is another one of my long term residents of my shelf of shame. Stripped, re-primed and re-painted after an unsuccessful first attempt. 
      I tried for a somewhat mayan color scheme by googling pictures of mayan art and choosing the paint closest in colour that I had.
       
      Fun fact 1: The mayas produced a special blue-green pigment which they used in their paintings. This pigment is very resistent to weathering. It's known as maya blue.
      Fun fact 2: Mayas used the same word for green and blue, meaning different greens and blues were seen as shades of ONE colour, not as belonging to two different categories, like for example in the English language.
       
      I had a lot of fun with the water effects. But next time I have to cut back on the sea foam, it definitely looks better when applied sparingly.
       
      Enjoy, c&c welcome, as always!
