A direct excerpt taken from what used to be the historical site. Just another long line of what appears to be stupid things done by Gamesworkshop and it's affiliates. Although I'm not surprised by the actions, they don't do any historical miniatures, so why build a game.
I love the core Warhammer rules, they work well and WAB 2.0 is a very good system, the AoA book is an awesome source of lists. So it saddens me to see this, for I dislike Hail Caesar and I don't know what this will mean for the future of the tournament scene. Locally, I think people will continue to play, but what drives many people to play games here in the midwest is the tournament scene, its a way for people with like minds get together to have fun and play hard. Hail Caesar is not equipped to deal with tourneys in my opinion, I'm definitely not a convert. I think Black Powder is fine for Napoleonics and such, but not as a Ancients Games Set of Rules.
Maybe someone purchased it, but I doubt that very much. I may have to consider Clash of Empires, as I forsee a mass exodus of players from Warhammer Ancient Battles. I could be wrong, but its possible.
I do plan to order SAGA as I get more in to the Dark Ages and look forward to some smaller skirmish styled games.
