If you want fluff, look up the faction books. I believe all the original 8 were published. They're still floating around places like ebay, and amazon.

Crusaders, Reven, Necropolis, Nefsokar, and Overlords were the only Faction books released.  They were great books, but the problem was, they were being written by the Reaper staff who were also trying to manage their day-to-day jobs at the factory as well.  Too many hats, not enough heads.

 

At that point, the plan to make individual faction books was dropped, and instead a multifaction book was going to come out.

 

RAGE Chronicles was sort of a precursor to that.  

 

Then the rules got rebooted with 2.0.

 

If you can get your hands on it, the old Dark Heavens Apocalypse boxed set has a ton of fluff about the various countries and powers in Adon (Warlord game world) that Warlord is based directly off from.  Even the Savage North armies are based on stuff from Apocalypse.

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.

I picked up a hard cover the other day called "Warlord, Battles in Worn Torn Taltos" . . . where in the Warlord Publishing history does this book fall?

That's a first edition book.  Second edition Core Rulebook was softcover.

 

If you look at the binding, if there is a ribbon on the edge of the binder, that is a second printing, and some corrections were made between 1st and second printing.

I don't see a ribbon and looking inside I see a "First Printing June 2004". The binding also has "Core Rules" so duh! Its the core rules . . . :-)

 

I already have 2nd Ed and Savage North. Did the fluff change much?

 

Not that it really matters . . . I have the book now and you'll have to PRYITOUTOFMYGRUBBYFINGERS to get it . . . :-)

Fluff didn't change at all between 1E & 2E AFAIK. Just the armies were expanded that didn't get Faction Book love.


KS III is currently giving ridiculous amounts of Warlord love.

There is also fluff in the older casketworks. You'd have to look through them to see what articles are in each.

I love the Dark Heavens Apocalypse box set. Great fluff.

I believe the very first one has a lot of fluff and should be availabe in pdf for free on Reaper's website.

A handy list of which ones are Warlord models and which ones are close proxies for a Warlord model would be a fun thing to compile. But, in this thread.

 

I saw 5 Crusaders, Some Tre Manor Orcs...

      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!
