    1. Did you expect anything else from GW? :P

    2. Called a teaser for a reason. ...

      Exactly that.

      It's a teaser, it's supposed to tease you with something without giving any real info, to peak your interest.
      If it had more it would be a trailer or advert.

      I really don't understand why some people can't get that concept to be honest.

    4. I think it is more the pride or lack of that they take with them rather than the amount of content which has been a complaint since they first started with them. Now asking for Sr. Spielbergo but some effort would be nice.

    5. That doesn't mean a teaser can't be lame, does it? FW teasers include peaks at the artwork, occasionally models and have generally great stuff to leave you going "I NEED BOOK V NAAAAOOOO!!!"

      This was just a logo and a date.

      Like I said, just because it's a teaser doesn't mean it has to be inconsequential rubbish! =P

      That's because those FW vids aren't actually teasers, those are more like ads.

      The one posted above is a teaser as it doesn't actually give you any info, just an idea that something is coming to get people talking about it.
      Something it seems to have achieved I'd say.

    7. Actually a teaser gives you a little bit of something to peek the interest of the watcher. This does not. Its a name, a date, and a logo. Woopy do.. My 7yr old could have done a better job on his phone than this. Lame

    8. read the description in this "article" and avoid being disappointed, i saw it said "not much of a teaser" and "first official mention".....lame or not it done it's intended role/job. but many here already know about it.....it's nice GW cottoned on to the fact many knew about it, and thus gave a logo instead.....

    9. Even the date is somewhat misleading

  2. The age of Sigmar heralds Chaos.... not spikey chaos,just uncertain pain in the backside chaos. Chaos over lack of news. Chaos over bases and rules.....

  3. Oaft, that like/dislike ratio is pretty harsh. I actually hope this game does well and that newcomers to Fantasy give it a go. I won't be playing it (obviously) but I'd really be gutted to see GW plough money into it only for it to utterly disappear.

  5. I really can't see this going too well for GW if rumours are true that they are scaling back so much on factions and armies to start with. That is demanding the utmost loyalty from fans to rebuild/wait and stick with it all.
    The new rules need to be something very very special for this to pay off at all I reckon.
    One positive I am gleaming from it all though is the skirmish mode which could be and I hope is well done. Always thought that worked in better in fantasy setting.

    1. Me type English good. The gods (what's left of them anyway), demand an edit button!!

    2. Think you got problems....

      I was going to make a comment elsewhere of: "try reading while rapping", but my phone kept confusing "rap" with "rape".

      That would have been awkward

    3. I think your phone has problems. :P

  6. Went into my local GW today. He had the Age of Sigmar posters up on the shelf and none of the current army books. When I asked him why no books, he told me they had given him specific instructions to take them off the shelf and put the posters up. He also said they're still for sale. He said he highly doubts they'll discontinue them but there might be some kind of combined books, like a Beastmen, Skaven and Chaos etc all in one book. He genuinely doesn't know though. He said that if anyone at GW stores tells you anything as FACT they're lying. Head office apparently hasn't told anyone in the stores anything concrete so even what GW store staff say is still just speculation.

    1. I'm still amazed people take "my local GW manager said this utterly insane thing" as anything more than a manager trolling an annoying customer!

      Delete
    2. I know. I love the guy that runs my local. He just tells it as it is and gets just as excited about whats coming as anyone else does. His enthusiasm is infectious. I once had a guy in a GW store (not my local) say that the Wulfen were 100% back in the lastest Space Wolf dex. I didn't believe him anyway but he was obviously lying through his teeth.

    3. I dunno. A GW manager in NYC told me Eldar would get rending shuriken catapults. That was back in 2004. Eleven years later and it happened. (shrugs)

  7. The End has come
    An age has crumbled into ruin
    The world will never be the same again

    But from the flames a Phoenix will rise
    From the darkness comes the light
    A new age dawns

    The Age.....

    .....of Sigmar


    Age of Sigmar 4th July

    Now would that be so hard? Add some dramatic music, I'm thinking war drums, and some smoke drifting across the screen with flickering flames behind. Perhaps narrated by a "James Earl Jones" sounding voice.

    I made that up without thinking!

    1. +1

      Personally though I think John Hurt would sound better. James Earl Jones would just make me think Darth Vader is the main bad guy in Age of Sigmar...

    2. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of Sigmar.

    3. would you A: spend more on a video teaser knowing your future product is likely a failure from the get go, or B: spend less than required and play it safe, and if/when it goes down the toilet (along with former fans/player base enjoyment of said game universe) then they lose less overall on this project/product.....

      GW is playing it cheap/safe. if i was GW doing this sort of thing i would inject minimal resources into the video teaser......GW is for once acting/playing it safe. for that i applaud them.

    4. also it'd be great @ Malleas Bane: if Sir David Frederick Attenborough narrated it this imaginary teaser video.

      Delete
    5. Not like it'd cost much extra to insert some art slides and a bit of bombastic, pre-licensed music =P

      Hell, most British people would do that for half a bag of crisps (chips to all you Yankees out there) =P

    6. Considering as well the huge gamble they are placing on wiping the fantasy slate clean, you would think that they would want to reassure fans a bit more.
      Its this type of arrogance from them that would make a small part of me happy if I ever saw them crash and burn spectacularly.

    7. You provide the popcorn and I'll bring the beers.

      But seriously, I've a feeling this is either going to be epic! Whether epic fail or success remains to be seen, but I doubt there will be a happy result in between.

      I'm still hoping this will be the beginning of my Fantasy gaming. But I will admit to feeling some caution about spending money on such a game with an uncertain future.

    8. Get Michael Caine to do all GW's teaser voice overs.

  8. My first glance at the picture had me thinking this was somehow related to the HH Ultramarines Legion. Then I looked at the title.

  9. Did that teaser REALLY require a video?

  10. I've never played a game of fantasy warhammer... I've painted a lot of the minis but the whole system seemed too different from 40k and actual military engagements but this new reboot just might have me rolling dice in the old world.. I'm optimistic and a bit excited :)

    2. "To different from actual military engagements"
      You really need to look at history my friend, EVERY military engagement on a large scale from the early Roman period all the way through to the Napoleonic war and after were fought in block formation. The Shield Wall all the way to the English Square Formation. Watch Zulu for an even more recent depiction of a block formation (and Micheal Caine at his best.)
      only modern warfare saw the advent of a more loose formation i.e 40k and even then the 40k style formation is very unrealistic and more action film orientated.

    3. Ah, not to mention the Greeks, Persians, Sumerians, and the ancient Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans... etc.
      :D

  11. I just hope it brings new blood into fantasy!
