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 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.

Warlords of Erehwon first look

I finally picked up my copy of the Warlords of Erehwon rules from Warlord Games and had a read through it last night. This isn’t intended to be a review of the game but just my first impressions based on reading the book. No dice have been rolled in the creation of this post. The book is the the same size as the Gates of Antares rulebook and is hardbound. The cover and the internal pages are all printed on a semi-gloss stock which makes the book look attractive and the pages much easier to read than previous Warlords’ rules. The book is a hefty 248 pages and is more alike old Warhammer rule tomes than a svelte book like Dragon Rampant. The layout is quite nice and a dramatic improvement in quality from previous Warlord books. I am not sure if Anna Bereza, who is credited with the layout, is a new addition to the company but she is a great addition. The book looks good, has lots of great art and photos of miniatures. There are prominent headings on each page that make it easy to find a particular

Announcing The Fantasy Project

For some time I have been looking for a set of fantasy rules that let me play smaller scale games that Warhammer Fantasy, Kings of War or Age of Sigmar without some of the complicated insanity of rules like HoTT. Some time ago Osprey Publishing released their Dragon Rampant rules which are a variant of the Lion Rampant historical rules. They are a flexible set of rules but despite having them for some time I never ‘pulled the trigger’ on a game of them. Recently Warlord Games published their Warlords of Erehwon rules and Studio Tomahawk released the Age of Magic expansion for their Saga game system. Each ruleset has a different approach to fantasy gaming but plays at roughly the same level and so I thought that it would be an interesting project to build two armies and then use each ruleset to play some games and see what sort of game experience each of them gives. It is also an excuse to finally finish two fantasy armies that I have been wanting to get done but never had the impetus to do so. Wha

Dragon Rampant Vs Warlords of Erehwon

Two weeks, two games both set in Ancient China.The first outing an Dragon Rampant game with a scenario lifted from Grant & Asquith's Scenarios For All Ages  The long term plan is to play them all but at the current rate this could take over a decade...The scenario saw a column of troops stumbling into an Imperial camp and looking to break through into the cover of the woodland.The Imperial forces were unprepared and would have to be roused from their tents to block the path of the enemy forces. 24 points a side.The War Wagon was used to good effect blocking the path of the advancing column, the Crossbow men looking to blunt the Palace Guard who were leading the attack.The Guard stumbled, halted and finally routed. A poor morale roll saw them get below zero and leave the table.We manged to get two games in an evening. Swapping sides the Imperial Army once again stood firm against the lost column.The light cavalry charged and were repulsed there was to be no way through.Dragon Rampant gives a good quic
