warhammer is a world of fantasy. so i thik there should be more fantasy armies. we have 3 elves 2 undead and 2 man (3 if you say chaos) arimes. i would like 2 see more weired armies so if u have any ideas put them on here and see what people think.

one i have come up with is a bug armie with dragon fly riders ant's for its core like workers up 2 soldiers maby special rino beatles and centorpeads rare could be praying mantis and stick insects
lords could be a queen ant and princes. and battle ants for heros

what do u think? and what would u do?

I wouldn't like to see any new core armies, the development cycle for the existing ones is long enough as it is.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more specialist armies from forgeworld though. Raher than completely new armies I'd like to see races already existing in the fluff fleshed out some more rather than something totally new. Chaos dwarves and hobogoblins would be my number 1 vote, followed by cathy, then kislev and estalia. For human realms I'd like to see each given a unique fantasy flavour though rather than just being copy and paste of historical armies, e.g. cathayans using golems as core troops.

I say do cathy and ind / araby. I miss a asien tuch in warhammer world. I know that skaven have assasins as DE. They are like ninjas. But i miss a big army thats looks like a samuri army or a chines army. I think it can be really cool to actually do a army like that. And a good inspiration can be shoguns. But they can make ind and cathy in one army book.

Then you have Araby, well i know it can be a nice middle east tuch. I dont really know how they can do it. But i think salladin can be a good inspiration for a araby army. :)

If not they can allways do DoW again.=)

I personally don't want any new armies. I think GW has more than they can handle. You will get a lot of votes for Chaos Dwarfs.

Rather than add a new army, I'd like to see GW incorporate rules into existing armies to allow the creation of "new" armies. For instance, in the Empire book would be the Kislev and Cathay rules, and in the Dwarf book would be the Chaos Dwarf rules and in the Beastmen the Khuresh Tiger-men rules. That way, they can have more armies rules-wise but in terms of models, it would be a slew of conversion kits (like the Blazing Sun knights but better) to allow you to customize.

Forgeworld could be the producers of the kits I suppose, but trying to add full model ranges is daunting and will lead to higher costs...so why not just keep a base of 14-16 armies (or condense them into races) and expand with conversion kits. One of the main aspects of the hobby is creating your own miniatures and they'd help a lot.

Just an idea:

Empire - Kislev, Cathay, Estalia/Tilea DoW
Bretonnia - Nippon, Estalia/Tilea DoW variant
Lizardmen - Slaan army of old, Aztec Humans, Insect-men
Dwarfs - Chaos Dwarfs, Gnomes
High Elves - Galrauch's old army, Undead Elves
Wood Elves - Araby (with elementals), Albion
Dark Elves - Cult of Slaanesh, Kingdoms of Ind
Ogre Kingdoms - not sure
Tomb Kings - Living Nehekarans, Araby variant
Vampire Counts - the differing Bloodlines
Orcs & Goblins - differing Tribes
Warriors of Chaos - Gods of Law armies, various historical Hordes
Beastmen - Hinterlands of Khuresh Tiger-men, Needle-teeth Fishmen
Daemons of Chaos - Gods of Law Pantheon of creatures
Skaven - Mole-men, Eastern Monkey-men

Craziness!

Chaos Dwarves need brought back, and they probably will be at some point. After that I would love to see Dogs of War return with a new line of models.

I believe Warhammer Fantasy cant really cope with more new armies.

Development of the army books is cramped as it is - Not all armies got a book at 7th, there are factions on WH40k that dont didnt have new books for quite a while too and are desperately needing them.

It is simply that GW has a lot on their hands to handle, and adding a new army might just be too much.

Ramius4
26-11-2010, 20:10
Chaos Dwarves of course. But that's it. There are enough armies that need support as it is.

If I had a wishlist of new armies though, it would be Nippon, Cathay and Araby.

Rikadome
26-11-2010, 20:12
I agree with Superczhunk. Creating additional lists in the back of the army book with ways to modify units and the army list itself to create new armies is a great idea! Especially if they give tips on how to convert and have pictures of conversions, and some artwork to help people get the look and feel.

ghost21
26-11-2010, 20:32
chaos dwarfs, though i agree about the conversion kits , but i doubt it , since warhammer forge hasn't even a website yet they said by christmas, n really , to get christmas orders it should be up allready

I think a fun oen would be one with animations. Like clay statues, iron statues in a asian theme. Kind of like the terracotta armies coming to life. This would allow them to do an asian themed army without having yet another human race. Who knows what the characters would be though - they could be human i guess.

Dogs Of War

Reimu
26-11-2010, 23:06
Seconding Dogs of War. They're especially good if you like Border Princes campaigns. If you're an army like High Elves, you can't just keep your numbers going and going, right? It makes sense to throw some hired expendables at the enemy.

Araby, lots of light cavalry, few infantry, muma...err.elephants, flying carpets, 1001 nights on steroids

kyussinchains
26-11-2010, 23:28
I agree with dogs of war and chaos dwarfs.... more than that and you're starting to duplicate existing races.... I would like to see more detailed background written for the wider world, the southlands, cathay, araby, nippon etc, so people could convert models and use other army lists to represent them without having to invent too much background....

26-11-2010, 23:44
I'm with the OP, a new human army would be kinda lame. I would like to see a reptile/fish like army with a Lovecraftian theme.

Kevlar
27-11-2010, 00:41
I like the bug idea, but I think they should maybe be some alien type of space bugs. Big bugs with tough carapace armor and rending claws, and little swarmy bugs with maybe wings or leaping ability. Not sure what they could base such an army on though.

Kislev - Araby - Elemental creatures

Another vote for supporting existing armies before creating new ones. Not only keeping up a regular schedule of necessary updates for the current army books, but also showing some love for the Chaos Dwarf, Dogs of War, and Kislev players.

Anton
27-11-2010, 01:28
Chaos Dwarfs. After that, I'd love Araby or Ind.

Pacorko
27-11-2010, 03:35
why make a new one, even if mentioned or heavily hinted at in the fluff, when all they need to do is bring one back?

I mean, Kislev can be a lot more in terms of minis and fluff than what we were given in the past.

27-11-2010, 03:51
Scrap Demons & Ogres as proper armies. And ideally retcon to combine HE & WE. There, I just cleared out three slots.

--->Cathay! Kislev could be independent or just fit in the Empire book.

Actually I'm not crazy about DE's...redo them too.

Wait, what?

It's not a matter of deleting armies, but of suggesting one you'd like. All three elven nations are pretty distinct and work pretty well. That said, Ogres rule. Don't mess with them, mister. :p

Kislev has always suffered the lack of proper attention due to it always being forcibly vinculated to the Empire. It deserves a lot better because there so much that can be done with it.

But Cathay could be nice, too, if they go for Qin or Song Chinese, or Korean Imjin Wars aesthetics, instead of the typical Samurai-style everyone seems so keen to see. Otherwise, I'd find it way too L5R to be interesting.

I'd prefer that GW expedite their fantasy release process before they add any new armies. It's already going to be at least a whole year in between beastmen and whenever O&G get released.

Charistoph
27-11-2010, 05:52
Keeping to just 2 would be hard.

There are the Chaos Dwarfs that are barely given any time in the Warriors of Chaos book. There are the aquatics/fishmen that people are clamoring for. Insectoids would be nice, but you COULD just run a Skaven army with Tyranid models, since they would likely run similar. Kislev is basically Empire, but they ride bears more often (which, I would approve of). Araby, and the other human nations south or east of the Empire would be nice, too, if nothing else, a way to play them from another army book and have the cool models to boot.

Dogs of War need a complete rethink since they technically cannot be used to add to armies any more (stupidest move by GW, imo).

BRETELF
27-11-2010, 05:55
I would say elementals, There is lots of stuff to work with there. READ THIS GAMES WORKSHOP, ELEMENTALS...or an army from the sea would be pretty cool. Lots of stuff to do there.

Not enough people know anything about the south pacific for there to be an army, the area of the islands just isnt big enough to constitute an army.

Savage Orcs?

Vandelan
27-11-2010, 06:21
More evil elves, more of an antitheses of the Wood Elves, I'd prefer them to be colored red and obsessed with mining/black powder in addition to heavy armor and a little bit of magic. Not mining in the sense that Dwarfs, do but in a sense that they consider themselves the masters of the earth and don't care what sort of damage they do to it to get what they want from it.

Basically an excuse to have an elf army with heavy/heavier armor and guns in addition to being an excuse for red elves.

Ville
27-11-2010, 08:23
I'd love to collect myself a Chaos Dwarf army, especially if the book would have strong fluff and fascinating units to choose from. Yeah, I think they could have a lot of potential to come back for good, if GW made them right.

Games workshop should get their line done properly first.

But warhammer forge could get chaos dwarfs and dogs of war back. If "new" is wanted it should be very strange and over the top in style. It needs to add but come from fluff so amazons with old ones weapons! Though not the style of the mordheim warband please, something more slick and space like (with better female bodies). But could be added as allies to lizardmen for all I care.

27-11-2010, 11:09
Elementals would possibly be doable with the Daemons book. I'd seriously considered converting an army where the different types of elementals corresponded to a chaos god - Tzeentch for fire (because all tzeentchy stuff is flaming, if I recall rightly?), Nurgle for earth (being generally tough and immovable), Slaanesh and Khorne would have to be water and wind, though I'd prefer Khorne as fire and Tzeentch as water, you can't really have flaming attacks from a water elemental....

This, i think they have enough trouble trying to balance the existing armies, why add more!

WarmbloodedLizard
27-11-2010, 12:16
I totally pro more armies but with more kits that have bits (or different ways to use/assemble the bits) for different armies (like giants. this could easily be done with bolt throwers, elven Archers with 2 sets of heads (HE/WE) Dwarfs with 2 sets of heads (chaos dwarfs), etc.). that way 18-20 armies would still be doable and it would be more economic for GW. In line with thast, the should make armybooks more lasting with a view into the future and continuous erratas for the books (even including new units, points cost change, etc., this wouldn't be as good for sales as new books, but it would still increase 'em) and just do slight alteration to the printruns of ABs (or just release a new armybook every 5-10 years as they do now. just no stupid experiments like they always do. rules should mature over time, not completely renewed all the time or they wont ever be good. I'm pretty sure if they wont at it in a less chaotic and more organized way they could do everything at once: more armies, more sales, lower prices, better rules.

sure, the units would look slightly more similar and sales won't be made in waves that much any more. but in the long run that's just a superior design and business model.

logan054
27-11-2010, 12:21
I would disagree that it doable, its 8th ed and armies are still using 6th ed army books, I think for it to be viable they would have to start trimming the armies a bit, one big book for chaos, get ride of the crap like Ogres (just make them direct only, d/l army book).

In the old fluff Tzeentch was air (Eagle), Nurgle Earth (Crow), Slaanesh water (snake) and Khorne fire (not sure but I think bear or bull).

27-11-2010, 21:10
As much as I would like to see something crazy like Cathay, Ind, Araby if they add anything at all it should be Chaos Dwarfs and thats it.

There are enough armies as it is.

spiderman5z
27-11-2010, 21:17
Well Chaos dwarves are an obvious choice cause theyre fracking awesome! But if we are assuming that GW is so awesome that they can keep an infinite amount of armies up to date no problem (Well I can dream, can't I?) then Nippon, Araby, and Cathay would be really great additions to the warhammer realm. Since basically there are only White/European humans in all of warhammer...

BRETELF
27-11-2010, 21:43

I don't see the point of another human army, they already have Empire and Bretonnia. I can see units of all of those armys in Dogs of War. There is just not enough I don't think to build an entire army around.

Count me in with the "they can't properly support what they have" crowd. Get all the current armies with proper support before they even think of adding anything else.

I wish thay would add more official alternative army lists in the books.

It really dosent matter if thay are balanced or not either, just make them bad. Take blood bowl for exampel. In BB we have a halfling team that really really sucks. Thay will never ever win anything but thay are still a great team to play with.

zhu bajie
27-11-2010, 22:29
Old Fluff - Slann and Amazons with Kola habits and bolt-pistols should make a comeback.

Hows GW doing in china? Cathay, Nippon or something oriental flavoured would make good business sense.

if gw wanted to expand into asia it would make sense to do an asian themed army, but alot of warhammers armys are fantasy as in not real. so im thinking the asian people and their culture wouldn't take so kindly into something that isnt a real legend.

Ihope this does not offend anyone.

Kingding85
28-11-2010, 00:00
dude for adding armies its gotta be Grand Cathay and Araby i mean its not fair they mention alot of stuff in black libary about them and grand cathay could have some really awesome looking dragons , ninja's, shaolin monks etc...

Araby well you can see most of an army in warmaster so its just a matter of making them bigger surely, i mean they do have an elephant so huge elephant vs stegadon it would look cool!!!!

Hochdorf
28-11-2010, 00:06
I'd rather not see Far Eastern armies. I like having that part of the world mysterious. (Just my personal preference.)

I'd like to flesh out the regions closer to the Old World that have been touched upon in the past: Chaos Dwarfs (and Hobgoblins), Kislev, Araby, and Tilea would be top of my list.

If they decided to do something cool with Estalia, Norsca, the Border Princes, or even the good old Fimir that would be nice too.

doddy84
28-11-2010, 01:49
GW always do the same armys up. y not leave them finish the rest and start on some new things. or brig out a book with ideas n ways of making your own. they could put the poins n rules online for us to down load

Even though humans are supposedly numerous, and elves aren't, the latter are represented by 3 armies while the former only have 2?

If all for another army human (proper human, not like WoC) for the most of it. Of course, other stuff can be added if the fluff allows for it, like elephants for Araby etc.

The question is what TYPE of army do we aleady lack, in terms of battlefield tactics. I think the current options cover all the available options pretty well.

WarmbloodedLizard
28-11-2010, 17:44
I would expect ind/araby or cathay/nippon to be vastly different from the other human armies, so i don't see a problem with that.

Peregijn
29-11-2010, 08:56
i think that with a little Fantasie and back ground you can turn any armie into anything you want.
me. i am building a WoC Tzeentch armie where half of the armie is total blueisch and gohst like. they have been partly planted in the warp by my suprime general so that they have some extra protection (mark of tzeentch = 6+ wardsave)
and you can say that they look like "mist" elementals.

Coragus
30-11-2010, 20:05
Instead of a new army, I'd like to see options for different builds in new army books.

Think back to the way Hordes of Chaos used to be. If you picked a Deamonic general, then deamons were core and mortals were special. The general you picked influenced your army build.

That could be done with other armies as well during their updates. An Empire army from Nuln should look and play differently than one from Altdorf, not just be painted a different color.

Reimu
30-11-2010, 20:28
Well, one of my wishlist ideas for 8th Ed. High Elves is giving your characters "origins", detailing which part of Ulthuan they herald from. Caledorian characters might get +1WS and Nobles might get the capacity to ride Sun Dragons, for instance. Casters from Hoeth might get magic bonuses, while martial characters might get the Heroic Killing Blow special rule.

And then your General could influence your army. So a Caledorian general would move Dragon Princes to Core. A Hoeth general would move Swordmasters to Core. And so on and so forth.

Chainaxe07
30-11-2010, 22:48
Hello,
like many here: chaos dwarves, nippon/catay then kislev. After that i wont mind either deep one like fishmen (ok, ok, i know) then armies from the southern lands.

theunwantedbeing
30-11-2010, 23:06
Kislev would be good, as would Dogs of War(including Regiments of Reknown).

Kislev is different enough from the empire and bretonnia to play differently, plus you get to have an ice magic lore and ice mages. As well as things like giant bears, winged lancers and other things that have yet to be made up properly but would allow for a different enough army to exist in warhammer.

Dogs of War mainly because it allows the Araby/Ind lore to be explored without making it well known and ruining the mysterious element of it all. Dogs of war wouldn't need to be an add on list for every other race, it could be a standalone army made from many many different units and incorporate multiple regiments of reknown into it easily enough.

Chaos dwarves would be a nice army to get re-done, simply as they have existed for a long time and never really been given a proper book.

I could happily live with Ogre Kingdoms being reconned and merely referenced within the Dogs of War list rather than being a proper list. Although things like Maneaters & Leadbelchers would get to exist as a unit, as would the gnoblars and gnoblar scraplaunchers and such.
Yhetee's could easily be lumped into a Kislev book, no human list has anything troll-like within it's list, so it's a nice alternative for the army and fits with the snow theme they have going.

I do miss the old hoardes of chaos style book though.
It would have been nice to have had the 3 chaos books be interchangable as that was something we've had for a long time and it was fun :)

mr.kislev
30-11-2010, 23:21
I would prefer kislev as a new army because they have a different play style as a full light/mid cavalry army.

ChaosCajun
01-12-2010, 00:27
Plenty of armies already. Bring back Chaos Dwarves, Kislev, and Dogs of War (perhaps as a Tilean army?) and you have way more than GW can handle.

BRETELF
01-12-2010, 19:05
I think if they bring back Dogs Of War they should make them more like a regular army instead of 20 different regiments from different army backrounds. Does anyone get what im saying, i dont know if i do?

Spleen Hammer
01-12-2010, 22:38
Not a fan of Chaos Dwarves. Worst... models... Evar!!

I think that GW should hire more staff to get out what they tenetively have promised. *what? It'd take away from their bottom line? Hrmm*

I support the rolling into one book the High and Wood Elves. Same with Bretonia and Empire. Consolidate and revise, all around.

As for a new army, I'd like to see a race of (insert suitably cool critters) that have dwindled over the aeons. They themselves are few but their creations are many. Sort of like the Alchemists of Dirz, but better. Super crazy mutant doods running around scything whole regiments at a time, supported by characters with funky abilities to make the crazy mutant doods better. No magic, but instead alchemal treatments.

That'd be neat.

Albion with a new race of some sort such as Gnomes. Use alot of magic and of course giants.

skullkandy
28-12-2010, 16:49
Rather than add a new army, I'd like to see GW incorporate rules into existing armies to allow the creation of "new" armies. For instance, in the Empire book would be the Kislev and Cathay rules, and in the Dwarf book would be the Chaos Dwarf rules and in the Beastmen the Khuresh Tiger-men rules. That way, they can have more armies rules-wise but in terms of models, it would be a slew of conversion kits (like the Blazing Sun knights but better) to allow you to customize.

Forgeworld could be the producers of the kits I suppose, but trying to add full model ranges is daunting and will lead to higher costs...so why not just keep a base of 14-16 armies (or condense them into races) and expand with conversion kits. One of the main aspects of the hobby is creating your own miniatures and they'd help a lot.

Just an idea:

Empire - Kislev, Cathay, Estalia/Tilea DoW
Bretonnia - Nippon, Estalia/Tilea DoW variant
Lizardmen - Slaan army of old, Aztec Humans, Insect-men
Dwarfs - Chaos Dwarfs, Gnomes
High Elves - Galrauch's old army, Undead Elves
Wood Elves - Araby (with elementals), Albion
Dark Elves - Cult of Slaanesh, Kingdoms of Ind
Ogre Kingdoms - not sure
Tomb Kings - Living Nehekarans, Araby variant
Vampire Counts - the differing Bloodlines
Orcs & Goblins - differing Tribes
Warriors of Chaos - Gods of Law armies, various historical Hordes
Beastmen - Hinterlands of Khuresh Tiger-men, Needle-teeth Fishmen
Daemons of Chaos - Gods of Law Pantheon of creatures
Skaven - Mole-men, Eastern Monkey-men

Craziness!


I like this idea, add more options to the existing armies.

It seems like most armies are "every single thing is "worthless" except these 2 units." it makes most lists look stale and identical because a tiny percentage of choices are infinitely better than everything else. diversifying the current armies to make many viable lists would be the best thing GW could do for the game other than releasing more than 1 un-tested army book every decade.

GW could easily make a Nippon army or a Grand Cathay army simply by tapping the resources they already are employing.

Jervis Johnson and the guys that made Warhammer Ancients already have some Chinese and Samurai rules that could be fleshed out to be a little more fantasy and added to Warhammer Fantasy.

Mike and Alan Perry (GW miniatures sculptors) already have a line of Samurai miniatures and Korean miniatures that they make with their own company, mainly for Warhammer Ancient Battles, so GW could use them to sculpt up the Grand Cathay and Nippon miniatures since they already have the experience of doing it for their own company and they are still GW employees.

Right now I'm using my Perry Miniatures army of Samurai with the Dark Elf rules because I see those rules as being as close to the Samurai as I can get in the current system.

Not more armies. - 15 is about right

But if you would like to experiment with 16 Completely different armies in WHFB meant to fight each other have a look at the link in my signature below

Still needs tweaking

Intriguing! 'File not found'. A very zen answer, sir.

I would definitly go for a kislev army, i live in canada where theres heaps of snow in the winter so it would be the kind of army I could relate to. Also the old polar bear models look soo sweet.

I think they could just add fishmen to the lizardman army, its not too big of a change.

If you are simply going for friendly games, I know there are several well-made unofficial army books for armies like Cathay, Albion, Nippon, Chaos Dwarfs, etc. They are pretty amusing with some interesting ideas.

I can't remember the exact site I found them on though, but I downloaded pretty much all of them.

Obviously, not for tournament/official play :P

Nippon ?
From this list?:

1) Dark Empire (The Old World)
2) Rebels of the Empire (Western Coast of Old World)
3) Antmen (Underground and Southern Badlands)
4) Molemen (Underground, mainly west of the World Edge Mountains)
5) Wizards of Zandar (Zandar, Southern Dark Lands)
6) Elementals (Chaos Wastes, Naggaroth, Lustria, Southlands, Araby, Nippon and the Kingdoms of Ind)
7) Un-Living Dead (The Land of the Dead and Sylvania)
8) Mountain Elves (Grey Mountains)
9) Chaos Goblins (Cathay and Mountains of Mourn)
10) Halflings (The Moot, at the foot of the Grey Mountains)
11) Dragons (The Dragon Isles and the Lost Isles of Elithes)
12) Raptors (The Southlands)
13) The Felidi of Chaos (The Hinterlands of Khuresh)
14 The Fiyarsu of Nippon
15) Avatarese and Ind Alliance (Ind and west of Ind)
16) Khemet and Pharaohnic legions (City of Quatar in the Land of the Dead)

Only 1 other person wrote an army book for Nippon IIRC.
Link for the above armies is shown in blue down below - apologies for repeating this :)

Oh wow. I had no idea that there were some here as well.

No, these were somewhere else. I apologize for cutting into your guys' game, no pun intended. :P

I miss Kislev. You gotta love someone riding a bear... or just bears in general!

So much fluff for them and yet so little recognition. They could even be released much like how the Space Marine factions (or whatever they are) are released just with the Empire. Same basic guys but some special bits to alter them with and maybe a wee book or something to go alongside it. I have a soft spot for Kislev because it was the first army I wanted to get! Then I got elves :P
