Ah, nostalgia …
I’m certain that this ruleset will be quite popular with the Fantasy crossover crowd that has been drawn to WAB of late, and will also draw in some more Fantasy/40K players. I’m even fairly certain that I’ll buy the book myself, although coming out in November, it sadly will probably not be done in time for Crisis.
However, I can’t quite shake the feeling that this is a serious deja vu. Almost 7-8 years ago, when I started to get into wargaming, then Guernsey Foundry created quite a stir with their Old West range of figures. Schild & Vriend’s first big period in the Golden Age was the Old West, and we have many photos to prove it (in fact, one of the revival games I have in mind for the future is an Old West game.
One has to wonder why WH has chosen this particular period to expand their range into, and at this particular time. Any ideas, anyone?
