Warhammer fantasy battle: it does what its says on the tin.
I've been playing warhammer since the late 80's and by and large in all that time the game has
remained, for me the same. I played 3rd, 4th and quite a bit of 6th. I enjoyed all three of those iterations immensely and truth be told there is very little difference in them. If you can play one you can play the other.
I'll admit that I've dallied a while with other systems, RT and 40K 2nd got a good look in, Fantasy Warlord and Armies of Arcana got a go and various skirmish systems. I'll leave aside historical gaming and admit I always went back to Warhammer. Why?
And this is why the monumental happenings in the GW world mean nothing to me. My game still exists. I could give the new rules a go, I may but what I already have isn't broken. Never has been and never will be. And this to me is oldhammer, bumbling along in my own personal way playing my fantasy game the way I want and reaching out to people to say,"Who wants to play, War-ar-hammer. Who wants to play, War-ar-hammer."
Forget the guff do you want to play or not?
