Warhammer Fantasy 9th Starter: Forces of Light vs Chaos


It is still a little ways out, but Warhammer 9th edition is what a lot of people are talking about. From the round base rumors, to skirmish sized games, and armies no longer supported, 9th edition has been on a series of up and down rumors and dramatic reactions to what may or may not happen.

Here are some rumors from over on Bols that are pointing towards a starter set box release of the "Forces of Light" vs Chaos release.


Please remember that these are rumors at this point.

WFB 9th Box & Armies
The results of the End Times will be directly reflected in the armies included in 9th Edition
Boxed Set:

Will include good guys (the Forces of Light) versus Chaos – in a loose fashion.

The Boxed Set is set in a former city of the Empire (save your breathe, it’s NOT Mordheim), but luckily the End Times offers up plenty of new choices.

Boxed Set includes a campaign at a skirmish level and is firmly designed to introduce new players into the game at this smaller model-count level.

Look for an increased focus on “Heroes & Characters”, even at the skirmish level of the game.

WFB 9th will kick off a new set of products that cover not only the new surviving factions, but new modular terrain pieces that support the game at all size levels and reflect the new “Post End-Times” world.

  1. Interesting that this scenery rumor shows up immediately after the scenery tab rumor. Could be that it backs it up or this could be speculation based off it. Either way it seems intriguing.

    But the Box will also include dice & a rulebook! ;)

    Really? Good Vs Bad guys? Thats the rumor? Larry really needs those Klicks i guess!

    1. I'm personally curious to see if the red sticks of shame will continue to be included. Those make great back/leg scratchers

    2. Can't scratch your own legs? damn..

    3. Broken foot. Leg in cast. That stick is small enough to fit in cast, numbers make good scratching material.

  3. Breaking news:
    box will come with 2 red "rulers." My source says they may be attached together by another piece of red plastic.

  5. I'm not even gonna touch this one.. fantasy has never been my tea..one thing for sure a new edition of whfb will not be that dramatic .. for crying out loud a new dwarf and wood elf codex was just released and will surely be just as compatible.. any new edition has been in the works along the same time as the latest codex productions.. these random clickbait rumors that have no basis or foundation are laughable

    1. on the one hand it might be as dramatic or more so and on the other hand it might only be superficial changes. those that people state are among the best believe it'll be the former not the latter. time will tell us the most accurate information. so i'd best bet on waiting and seeing as opposed to forming opinion based on limited information which by your own words "these random clickbait rumors that have no basis or foundation are laughable"

  6. The interesting part of this is it says forces of light 'in a loose fashion'. Could that mean a comined force for light? Elves, dwarves, lizards etc? Also enough of the rumour bashing, we all come here for the rumours and the headline made it pretty obvious what this one would entail

    2. Yeah, I think complainers should ask for their money back...

  7. Would love it if it had a mordheim style campaign system too

  8. I'd love to see the next edition keep many 8th edition core rules, tweaking magic and some areas, but also expand on some things. Such as once again orovide full on rules for sieges and a skirmish type system. These sorts of things can really change up the gaming experience for players. I like the idea of the campaign type linked battles with strategies for generals in the Thanquol book so I'd be happy to see more of those types of options for people to use if they choose to. Just please none of that Khaine magic. LOL Not a fan of those rules at all.

  9. I have never seen a company disintegrate with a new "updated" product such as GW with The End Times.
    Oh well.... unless I count the NGE of Star Wars Galaxies....

  10. I wonder if it would've come to this if not for 8th ed where GW tipped the power balance back into infantry, but made sure that you need to go with huge blocks of models to really get the benefits. As a result, GW made the threshold for new players to get into the game even higher. I think that's what triggered the decrease of sales.

    1. Its one of the reasons that despite loving the game play I can't bring myself to get excited at painting the large blocks of troops. Which kills my general excitement for the game.
