It's definitely interesting and exciting news, i was going to post it too. I believe the huge success of TotalWar Warhammer is probably related to this decision.
Sadly, we're talking abouit a wait period of 2-3 years… :(

This makes me very glad that I neither rebased my models nor sold any of them. I am not so sure that the wait period is going to be so long either, as GW appears to be mocking itself with some of those time-related comments ;). Either way, I think that it is potentially a good news story for all those of us who invested a lot of money in Fantasy over the years.

As an aside, the trailer does rather remind me of the trailers for the 'final' Star Wars film. 'Nobody (nothing in this case) has ever really gone'.

N.B. I've moved this to the World that Was for now, as it's more appropriate to a Warhammer board than an Age of Sigmar one.

SO TRUE.

i would really like to come play again my true Tomb Kings. And even proper Dawi, as they were not truly discontinued, but the survived dispossessed in AoS are kinda… 20% of the models range i own.
The situation for vampire counts is less problematic, as basically all of my models are still playable in AoS (except necromancer on horse)

on a side (but related) note, GW say that using square bases on AoS minis is fine (as long as you measure to and from minis as if they were on the round bases), but with the Old World with square bases, I'm confident that round bases will be the only ones playable in AoS. Kinda like WYSIWYG: pick the base / equipment you want, and stick to it.

Today, Games Workshop has confirmed that Warhammer: The Old World will be using square bases and that it will be the in the standard scale (fears of a Warmaster remaster are washed away, huzzah!).

https://www.warhammer-community.com...tions-about-warhammer-the-old-world-answered/

While square based armies always trigger nostalgia in me, I find the round bases more visually appealing and still plan to rebase my old VC on round bases. Especially since I'm more into using them as a display piece than I actually play.

However, I also really liked this aspect of the WHFB: "Warhammer: The Old World is a reinvention of the classic rank-and-file game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Regiments move in ranked-up units, and strategic manoeuvring into position to launch or receive a critical charge will be as much a key part of the game as it ever was." so I plan to use AoS models with trays or base adapters to be able to play both games with the same models. Only intend to play with a group of friends so it shouldn't be an issue anyway.

They also said they aim for the game to be a mix of the best rules from 3rd to 8th edition so we still need to see how that will turn out.

What I'm most excited about however, is that this implies that Bretonnia and Tomb Kings might get new models sometime in the future. That would make me very warm inside. 😁

What are your thoughts and plans regarding this?

I am excited for ToW... i only hope it won't take 2 years or more to release it.
And given that a large part of my armis are still square based, i'm happy with it.
