From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Warhammer Community recently featured a Q&A style article about their forthcoming Old World game. They confirmed that square bases will be used, and that the rules designers will be dipping into many of Warhammer’s past editions when writing the rules for this game.

This revealed that the time setting of this game is a couple of centuries prior to the setting of Warhammer, well, the setting of Warhammer 4th through 8th edition. This puts the game in the years leading up to the Great War Against Chaos.
The Empire was weaker in those years, and the Colleges of magic were yet to be established, so it will be interesting to see what that army looks like – or whether separate Empire states will have their own forces.
You can read the article for yourself, but the game is still some time away. I don’t mind, it gives me time to finish all that painting!
