So, the local store has gotten into Sigmar (yes, I know, the horror! the horror!) and I find that while I enjoy it, it doesn't scratch the itch that was satisfied by my time in the good old days with my old lizardmen army ( I now am on the 2nd one, the first having been lost to the ages of time). I used to play lizards in 7th and had great fun doing so, but never got around to 8th, as Flames of War took over for me and I fell out of the GW hobby. Now, I do want to play fantasy proper again and have rebased everything to that end. Now my dilemma is whether I play with 7th edition rules or 8th edition rules. I have heard a lot of negativity surrounding 8th, and don't like some of the rules I have read (wonky skirmisher formations that are probably a pain to move without a special tray, and TLOS being the two culprits that come to mind), but other things seem good to me. I was just wondering what you guys thought of the various pros and cons for each of these editions. Player availability is less of an issue for me, as I also have a small (1200pts or so without upgrades) empire force to face off against for any victims that wish to join me. Oldhammer is also not a thing in my town yet, so there is no set precedence there either. Also I know that the 8th edition argument also involves the awesomeness that are ripperdactyls and the hilarity of a giant dinosaur that shoots snakes at people, so let's base it on the merit of the rules themselves (and the balance therein) rather than what the lizards get in one over the other. so what say you? which is the better edition and why?
