    So apparently, people called Forge World and it was confirmed that the Legion of Azgorh (Chaos Dwarfs) are being retired/discontinued. It is discussed in this video starting at the 23:40 mark.

    Which means 50% of my armies are discontinued (CD and TK). At least my WoC are pretty much the safest bet (outside of DoC) to never get scraped.

    Yep, and that means the Legions of Azgorth likely won't get anymore updates. Just like the Dogs of War and the Renegades and Heretics. Woe to the fallen!!!

    In 8th edition nobody gets anymore updates... so it makes little difference! !.png

    To be honest, when GW killed WFB, I was worried that the game would slowly become stale. Much to my surprise, I'm very much enjoying having a stable game. I'm even going through the trouble of slowly collecting all the books for each and every army, which is something I would not have normally done because they would simply become null and void in a few years time. In short, GW can't hurt the game. It's beyond their grasp.

    Others will disagree of course, which is also a valid stance to take. Most people need/want a constantly evolving game.

    I blame modern videogames for this. The ability to send out frequent updates has conditioned a lot of people into craving the excitement of constant & often rather extreme changes, and otherwise they'l just move on to the next game. Ignoring that a good game doesn't need a new gimmick every year or so and eventually stablizes as it matures.

    And of course there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting to play something new and exciting, but endlessly chasing that excitement often causes the game to devolve into a mess. It's always a shame to see a game lose it's original spirit because so many changes have happened that it's no longer really recognizeable as what it once was.

    Having a game be officially retired like WFB can have it's advantages by allowing to to finally more or less stabalize. Especially when it's inherently quite easy to have varied games because you have flexible objectives and a flexible board/level design (e.g. terrain, army builds etc.)

    In fairness, those dwarves are copy pasted, it's really just the ship, 2 floating dwarfs, the king the standard bearer and 1 row of dwarfs copied 20 times. :p

    He’s not just a king, he’s King Belegar Ironhammer, Son of King Lunn, True King of the Eight Peaks! Just because AoS killed him off (when most of the characters they’ve resurrected are crap) and turned him into a generic Dwarf King model, doesn’t mean you can’t ignore his name when we’re talking about Fantasy Dwarfs.

    Come on matey get it right ;)

    A lot of people hate those hats, but to me they are nostalgia personified. I first started playing Warhammer when 4th edition was on the way out, and the guy who got me into the game has a large old-school Chaos Dwarf army.

    A lot of people love those hats as well. There is a significant contingent of players who prefer the old school big hat Chaos Dwarfs over the current (soon to be retired) Forge World line. Personally, I like the Forge World ones better myself, but the old school ones are pretty awesome too.
