    6th Edition WFB battle reports a plenty

    http://www.classichammer.com/forum/v...hp?forum_id=31

    Figure I'll shill for the classichammer site a bit rather than try to copy/paste all those reports. Tons of posters on there posting battle reports.

    Interesting. I really liked 6th when it came out, and when I heard it was going away, that pretty much broke my remaining tie to GW. I'd already bailed out on 40k, and while I toyed with the idea of keeping my books, my sense was that gaming groups would go with whatever came out, especially since it was as yet sight unseen.

    Having noticed that my 3rd ed. 40k books were worthless on the resale market (due to the advent of 4th ed.) I decided to dump all my books while they were still worth something.

    Subsequently, I made Conqueror to scratch the fantasy itch.

    Ironically, I did end up with a few of the 5th edition books for inspiration for my Conqueror army lists. I already owned a few and friends gave me theirs, and I found them useful to think over mechanics and such.

    I do still own Ravening Hordes which is arguably the most balanced list GW ever produced. It's also a nice resource for ideas.
    Want a better way to fight fantasy battles? Try the revised and expanded Conqueror: Fields of Victory!

    Do you like Star Wars but hate the prequels? Ever wish someone came up with a decent story about how a decadent galactic commonwealth descended into chaos and civil war? Look no further.

    I took the opposite route on this. Even when subsequent editions came out, I had no intention of selling out my old army books since I liked the edition so much. Even though I expected GW to implode or die away like the Westinghouse, I would have to admit that I had no intention of starting up any retro gaming so soon. At the time, I expected to teach any interested young ones that came into my world since the end of the edition. Given the way that things turned out, I am glad that I made the decision that I made when I did. I even tracked down a hardback of the BRB.

    Conqueror is a ruleset that I do want to look at. I keep dragging my feet because as of late, I really don't want to be a customer of Amazon any more than I have to.

    With 40k, I recognized that 2nd was THE definitive edition, but I didn't feel that Warhammer 6th ed. would have that staying power and retain a following. The decision to sell out was also motivated by a sense that I could do better, and I think I have.

    While I understand your feelings regarding Amazon, understand that independent authors benefit far more from your your purchases than Amazon does. To put it another way, if you must limit Amazon purchases, cut out the stuff that you can get somewhere else rather than independent authors.
