I have been tweaking the website design recently as it seems that most of you ( 60% ) are using smart phones to read these pages. The improvements you may notice is that the search result images are now under the headlines so that the results fit better on these smaller screens. The right column content still drops under the main content so you can access the search features and menus. All these changes have been tested on larger screens so that the 39% of you using desktops and 1% using tables still get a great looking site!
Age of Sigmar General’s Handbook Pre-Release Overview So Age of Sigmar has been out for about a year now and here comes the rule book and the first army book. The Age of Sigmar rule book is to be called “The Generals Handbook”, and advanced copies can be sewn at your local Games Workshop shop. They are available for pre-order in shops and mail order suppliers like Wayland Games. The Black Library also has a ‘sample’ e-book that you can download. The sample is mainly the introduction that explains what Games Workshop are trying to achieve. Just a note about the sample download. It comes as a eBook EPL v3 file. On most of the ebook readers that I tried on my Android device the background images for the page texture was displayed separately from the text, even on eReaders that say they read v3 files. However, after some searching I found that the ‘Kobo’ eReader did render the pages properly. You need to click on the menu item and import the documents on the device. It is worth the effort though. Once you have the sample properly rendered it does look as good as the printed publications Games Workshop…
Yes, Wargame Tactics has become so big that WordPress can not cope with the number of pages on the website. To fix this I have created separate menus for Warhammer 40k, 8th Edition, and Age of Sigmar. There is also a fourth main menu that holds links for other wargames and general links. While creating the new menu structure I have had a chance to review and improve the fonts and animations that I use. I hope that the new styling will make it quicker and easier to navigate around the website both on the computer and using mobile devices.
Ok, here we go again! The 2015 release of Codex Dark Angels is out and I will be updating the Wargame Tactics Dark Angels Tactics web pages, starting with the Dark Angels HQ Tactics as these have received the most changes, including the promotion of Azrael from the HQ section to being one of the ‘Lords of War‘. Other changes are that a number of Forations have been added to the codex. The formations are now where youcan find the Deathwin and Ravenwing armies, plus a number of other interesting formations, each with thier own special rules!
The King is Dead! Long Live the King! Yes, Games Workshop have pulled the plug on Warhammer 8th Edition as we know it. In it’s place comes the much more simplified Warhammer Age Of Sigmar. What is more, to kick off this new war game Games Workshop are giving the first edition of the rules away free! And what if you do not like the new rules? Well the 8th edition of Warhammer Fantasy still exists, and you can still get the rule books and army books from independent stockists. However the old rules will not be available forever so if this is what you want to do, stock up on the army books and cards now while they are still available. > Also buy: 8th Edition Warhammer Rules from Wayland Games So what’s happening here? As for this site the Warhammer Fantasy web pages will still be up for a while yet, but the updates on those pages will be slowing down. In the meantime I will be adding Warhammer age of Sigmar Tactics on the website too, just as fast as I get to grips with the new rules!
