WFB 9th Edition

I'm thinking.....a dangerous process in and of itself!....that since we don't have a squats chance in hell of getting information from GW about the next edition of Warhammer Fantasy, that I'm just going to make a make a guess and go with that. There are 'rumors' all over the various gaming sites, but no solid info of any sort.

I'm guessing the next version warhammer comes out June 20th, 2015. Lets go with that.

So let it be written, so let it be done!!!!

We will be up late on Friday night at the Swarthmore store with food and refreshments, and spend a few hours switching models to round bases (if that's true?). Have some fun, read the new rules, goof off, maybe try a game.

Sunday June 21st we'll hold the first 9th edition tournament. And yes, you'll need your own copy of the game to play in the tournament. It will be amusing enough to play with barely any rules knowledge. Having people who don't even own the book and havent read it at all would be silly.

No cost for the tournament. No real requirements on painting or modeling other than no stupid proxies, or hideous clay sculptures. If you don't have the model, you don't proxie something for it.

If they have both Skirmish and large game rules, we'll play the new skirmish version.

We'll play two rounds, try for three rounds if it goes well. Winners vs winners, but prizes will be random and provided by the store.

No entry fee. Free food. Free prizes. No whining.

No, really, i'm guessing this time. I've begged GW for info. Best i got was "well, probably we'll have WFB this mid summer...maybe". More info as we beat it out of them.
