Warhammer 8th Edition
Warhammer 8th Edition Fantasy is set in a fantasy setting of wizards, dragons, and mythical creatures. Warhammer Fantasy has more rules than the Sci-fi version so it appeals to the more mature player. The races available are similar to Warhammer 40K with approximately 15 different armies available to choose from.
Please remember that these pages are not a replacement for the Rulebook. You will need the Warhammer Fantasy 8th Edition Rulebook, or at least access to one, to play the game.
You will not find Warhammer Fantasy Battles in the Games Workshop Warhammer shops any more as it has been replaced by Warhammer Age of Sigmar. However if the prefer the more complex and tactically challanging Fantasy Battles rules I have kept these pages available.
Why Play Warhammer Fantasy?
The Warhammer 8th Edition Fantasy Battles has been replaced by Games Workshop with Warhammer Age of Sigmar, so why is there still such a strong following?
Warhammer Fantasy Battles requires much more precise thinking that is required for Warhammer 40k or Age of Sigmar, and is generally played by more mature players.
As usual to play Warhammer 8th Edition you will need own (or access to) a copy of the rule book and additional army book for the army that you play. You will not be able to find these in the Games Workshop stores any more, but you can find them on EBay and Amazon

However, with the release of the Orcs and Goblins army book we can see that Games Workshop will be slimming down the army specific quirky rules and equipment to make the armies more streamlined.
