Eighth Edition

So the rumor mill is hot and heavy with rumors of Fantasy going to Eighth Edition next summer. This would be right on schedule, although a lot of people seem really surprised. Here's some quick thoughts on what I'd like to see when Eighth is released:

- Ranks done by base size, so that Ogres and the like don't have to be five wide for bonuses.

- Break checks from fear and terror causers have leadership modifiers, instead of auto-breaking units. Like say -3 for fear and -6 for terror.

- A revision to the magic phase so that armies don't really have to focus on it all or nothing.

- Don't dumb down the game like with 40K.

  1. I agree with all your points above, especially with the magic revision.

    Here is my wish list:

    I really hope they put in scenarios. I am kinda bored with pitched battle. Have scenarios where only Core can capture objectives would help to bring troops back into the game.

    Eliminate mounted monsters in units, such as the stegadon in a unit of skinks.

    I hope the game isn't dumbed down, but with the lack of common sense and the RAW crowd looking for every loophole, maybe some rules do need to be dumbed down.
