Wow, there are a ton of lists in there.
Yeah, for real. It looks like it covers about 500 BC to 1500 AD, with a good selection of armies from across Eurasia.
That's like BAAAAAAMMMMM!! upside the head. Didn't expect that.
I am just glad that Forgeworld did not scrap the plan. I hope this will revitalise the WAB community.
Personally I will still be using my old supplement army lists. I will only use the AoA list for out of period games.
Did not see this coming. Looks an impressive variety of lists!

Typically it gets released mere days after I order WAB 2. Now I'll have to pay postage twice
Well now this made my day. It is my hope that this is just the start what is to come down the horizon, but unlike the old AofA this will not just be a way-station for the next supplement. 200 pages in a hardback is a lot for just a transitional supplement.
Leondegrande stated on the WAB forum :
"If I remember correctly the next book will be a 200 page hardcover HYW book written by Alex Buche"
I really hope they will create nice FW quality hardcover supplements that are 200 pages strong in the future.
I don't. But I guess this is a Forge World project now. So maybe WAB is going the same way and destined to be reserved only for those willing to pay top dollar?
(Or top pound, I guess, since it's not available in dollars anymore.)
Hail Caesar Rule Book 30 pounds
Hail Caesar Army Lists - Volume 1: Biblical & Classical 18 pounds
WAB 2.0 Rule Book, 32 pounds on sale for 16 pounds
WAB Armies of Antiquity 28 pounds (more periods covered than Biblical & Classical)
Hmmm....I don't know... I guess I would say that is comparable.
Basic Impetus - free
Basic Impetus army lists - free
For myself and the guys I know who have not bought WAB version 2, we are waiting for the "company" to "allow" USA indie stores to stock and sell the darn rulebook!!!
I am therefore I think OR I think therefore I am?
You may have people that play Impetus where you are. I know absolutely no one that will play Impetus with me locally, even with it basically being Free. All our players in this area understand the basic Warhammer rules from playing Fantasy. Its a much easier transition.
Crazy, do you have anyone that actually sales Warlord stuff locally, because in Wisconsin I have not seen anyone do that yet? I have to order out, But I understand your complaint.
I do think it is assinine for them not at least have U.S. distribution, but unless Adepticon changes the annual tournament, I'm not switching. And even if they do, it will be hard to convert people here.
So, wait - does this replace all the existing books (Alexander the Great, Shieldwall, etc etc etc) or is it in addition to them?
Allegedly the existing books still stand. But who knows?
Note to self: don't buy anything more until you finish painting what you've got already!

OK, cool, thanks for answering. They could do with putting that info on the web page though...
