Adapting a WFB army: Part 3 Warlords of Erehwon

This article is the third part in a series discussing how to convert a Warhammer Fantasy battle army for use in the three rulesets used in The Fantasy Project. If you haven't done so already, have a look at Part 1 as it explains the models that the article series will be using. You can also have a look at Part 2 which looks at Dragon Rampant . 10 equals 10 Empire Brigade army box When it comes to reusing a Warhammer Fantasy army in a new ruleset, Warlords of Erehwon is the clear winner. This is hardly surprising since Rick Priestly, who wrote Warlords of Erehwon, was also responsible for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. These rules have a more detailed point costs for the units as well as more unit options. Where Age of Magic had army themes and Dragon Rampant has no army lists, WoE has very specific army lists that assume specific types of models. There are army lists for Beastmen, Goblins, Orcs, Elves and, the one we will use, Knights. Warlords of Erehwon doesn't really have a suggested point level for g

Adapting a WFB army: Part 2 Dragon Rampant

Units in Dragon Rampant are usually 6 or 12 models but the rules also support what they call Single Model or Reduced Model units.

Adapting a WFB army: Part 1 Age of Magic

The easiest way to get involved in playing one of the three rulesets that The Fantasy Project is working with is to, if you have one, adapting an existing army that was built for Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Odds are though that what you have are the beginnings of an army that wasn’t completed and so while you might not have a full WFB force you have some painted minis that you can use. Each ruleset, Dragon Rampant, Age of Magic and Warlords of Erehwon, have different ways of paying for units and monsters as well as different unit sizes. Thankfully each ruleset is fairly flexible and it will let you get the most out of your existing army. A small note, I do not yet have a copy of Age of Magic so I am basing my comments on what I have read in other articles and seen in videos. Age of Magic also has ‘sublists’ for each army theme and I will not be dealing with them at all or any of the oddities of the lists like the lack of Levy troops in the Otherworld list.
