Experiemntal House Rules – Imperial Bunker and Webway Portal

A while ago our club members were chatting about the idea of creating data sheets for some of our terrain, as such I’ve created some experimental rules for them.

Here are the version 1 rules for our Eldar Webway Gate and Imperial Bunker.

Please let us know what you think by clicking on the below images, you’ll be taken to the PDF.

Webway Portal Imperial Bunker

These are currently the first edition of the rules and will most likely get tweaked after a bit of play testing, it’ll be good to get input from the wider gaming community (it should help with balance).

The Age of Sigmar or the End of Warhammer?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have probably spotted the two images of the new Age of Sigmar game that broke today.

People are still not totally sure if this will be a replacement for WFB, the fabled 9th edition or if it’s a stand alone game. All we are sure is that it looks quite different and the models have round bases!

To me it has the look and feel of a small scale skirmish game such as (the much missed, in my opinion) Confrontaton from Rackham or Privatee Press’ Warmachine/Hoardes.

The initial responses ahve been polarising to say the least, some in the community love it, others are convined the sky is falling and this is the end. A number of people are looking at buying it just for the conversion potential!

For me, I’m going to wait to see what else is revealed over the coming days/weeks, although I can see myself potentially dipping my toe in the water, especially as there will be easy crossover with 40K thanks to the bases!

What do people think? Do you like the new direction that is being taken? Will you be giving it a try?

Let us know!
