So Warhammer Old World, for those of you only used to Age of Sigmar is a “square based” version of Warhammer Fantasy (now obsolete) that is expected in the next couple of years.
Arguably driven by the huge success of the Total War Warhammer series, Games Workshop announced that Warhammer Old World is coming a while back and whilst it won’t be the old Warhammer Fantasy relaunched, will be using square bases.
Given the direct work between Creative Assembly and GW on the upcoming Warhammer Total War 3 game (“TW3”), there is a clear message that fans should expect to see the factions and units in TW3 in Warhammer Old World. Here’s what the FAQ says:
Deep within the realms of Chaos the four Ruinous Powers of Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Khorne prepare for war and two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay.
We can’t wait to start introducing you to the nine playable Legendary Lords that will lead these races into battle!
And given that the work on the units and KISLEV and CATHAY came from Games Workshop as mentioned on Warhammer Community the link seems clear that the Old World will include these.
