Sometimes the edition wars fight themselves.

Age Of Sigmar, the new entry-level skirmish game which is apparently the basis for Warhammer Fantasy Battle 9th Edition previews today and...

Well, I like to keep this blog positive, so I will say that a rules-light entry-level wargame is a nice idea and releasing the rulebook and army lists online for free is a very nice move.

And apparently the strained attempts at comedy like the requirement for a player to have a moustache to use one of a certain unit’s special abilities (that’s great for women or children playing...) or the requirement to insult the other player for another (no chance of asshole player actions there...) are just jokes for the backwards-compatible rules for your old miniatures, and there isn’t anything like that for the nice new miniatures GW want you to buy. So that’s okay then, isn’t it?

Is it?

(Update - a tournament has since added comedy rules for current armies. FUUUU)
