Walk about the Realms:

Main topic:

  • Three ways to play is still in there: Open, Narrative, and Matched play.
  • Path of Glory will be a separate book.
  • For open play more multiplayer battle plans and Triumph & Treachery rules.
  • Narrative will be expanded with siege rules and new Times of War rules, with rules for places undescribed at this time.  (Maybe a fore runner to Aelfs?)
  • Matched play will include new Battleplans, some new rules of one, and updated points for the factions.  (How long have we waited for a GW game with “quick” adjustments for competitive play?)
  • Allegiance Abilities for Fyreslayers, Seraphon, Slaaneshi hosts, Nighthaunts and over a dozen other factions.
  • Release date is not given, just says later this year?  Purely based on rumors from a few sources, by September at the latest.

    Really looking forward to the time of war rules, and the more allegiance abilities. I just hope my Dispossessed are in there :). But the change I would like the most, are more battleline options, or less restrictive battleline and allegiance options based on keywords. For example, rather than “this unit becomes battleline if your army has the X keyword” change it to “this unit becomes battleline if your general has the X keyword”. But I would settle for more battlelines.
