Eighth Edition For Life!

The REAL Warhammer Forum is dedicated to the 8th edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. While GW has launched a new era for Warhammer with the Age of Sigmar, this forum is for those in our hobby community who wish to continue playing WFB 8th edition either exclusively or along side the new Age of Sigmar.

In addition to various 8th edition Warhammer discussions, from rules questions to army list building to painting projects and so on, the EEFL (Eighth Edition For Life) community on this forum also seeks to create new army books and expansions, such as the Indy GT Dwarfs of Chaos army book and the Warhammer: GROM End Times expansion.

I think you mean 6th Edition. Like 8th edition but with 300% less big plastic monster bias.

Definitely 6th, the bad changes massively outweighed the good changes after that, 8th was a ****, True LoS is horrible, all the extra attacks make weak combat troops massively weaker, virtually no charge advantage de-emphasised the importance of maneuver.

You know, you could just say that you never got around to playing 8th. You'd know that monsters are pretty poor.

Agreed, 6th was the best and most complete edition.

I've just started gathering all the 6th ed resources for my group :D

Glad to see you around here Kevin, i remember your goblinoid article in WD, plus i loved your chaos dwarf indy GT armybook which i used for years until FW released Tamurkhan.

I agree that AoS is nothing like the fantasy battles we know and love.

I still think 2nd edition was the best of the 8 editions so far.

I'm just gonna keep playing triumph and treachery. Stupendous fun...you get so wrapped up in the treachery that triumph becomes secondary!

Well, for those of us who are weary of AoS haters crashing every thread with the same knee jerk criticisms over and over again, I suppose there might just be some entertainment value in watching those same people splitting into teeny tiny factions and squabbling over the minutiae of which Oldhammer edition is best. Subscribed. ;)

Don't worry. We know which edition is the worst.

The hypocrisy is strong in this one. ;)

6th edition was a solid rules set, my issue was with the army books - GW sucked the life out of the Warhammer world with barely any fluff in them. Furthermore, lots of units from various armies were dropped from the actual army books (goblin spider riders, Empire Steam Tank, classic special characters, etc). By the time 7th edition came around, they realized what they did and fixed all this for the most part.

Anyway, 8th edition is my fav because it's the ultimate mix of 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 editions into one awesome edition. The most balanced in my eyes as well.

Those of you that enjoy 8th, come join us at EEFL: http://www.eefl.freeforums.net

And this is why i can't support any community initiative. There are probably 20 going on right now, all doing different things.

Sadly, this isn't Mordheim or Bloodbowl, where the rules are short and the buy-in is small. WHFB is a huge game with a huge rulebook that needs a lot of support from a company. It will stick around a bit, but will fracture. It already is. Folks will move on to games that are actively supported. I am headed to Kings of War, myself.
