Great rundown. Very well thought out. This game seems like an absolute behemoth compared to modern rulesets, and I’m all for it! I noticed in another video you guys talked about house rules regarding challenges, making it only warlord vs warlord. I really dig that change, and I’m curious to hear if you guys have considered any other house rules for the game?

Hope to see more awesome battle reports from the old world soon!!

Really good video! Very good presented and easy understandable. I also watched your Old World Battle Reports and they are great. I’m looking foreward to see more of them. Are you planning to use some of the legacy armies as well at some point? I would really like to see the vampire counts in action if possible 🙂
Keep up your good work! I really enjoy your channel!!!

very interesting. My high elves are ready just send me the books I ordered GW!! nice short (ish) video and not to heavy in terms learning if you played previous editions. Keep up the great work.

Oh excellent! I’ve just today been looking for something like this. I’d really like to try out the Old World as a game, but I don’t really feel like spending about €100 for the books just so I can see if I like it. If I do and want to play then I have no issue buying the books, but it’s a bit of a risk just to get started.
