Glad I found this, WFRP is likely my most favourite system (and not just because of Skaven...). Got to give these a spin sometime. I still fondly remember the almost-with-power-point-slides presentation about How Bretonnia Is Not Just Empire With Funny Accents our GM gave us before chargen when we were to play the Barony of the Damned.

The 9 Most Ridiculous Badasses of the Warhammer Fantasy Game
Tabletop game maker Games Workshop has announced that the world of its long-running Warhammer Fantasy Battles game is coming to an end, to be replaced by a new setting. With its departure, we have to say goodbye to some over-the-top heroes and villains that made Warhammer so great — and here’s nine of the best.
It's bad enough that they missed out on luminaries such as Gotrek & Felix in that list, but it's a downright atrocity that Lumpin Croop's Fighting Cocks weren't featured in the top 3.

An infamously insane commander who's also a genius, so obviously...What bonus do I get if I bang two coconuts together?
The Mad Count: Marius Leitdorf is an
exceptional swordsman, even if he is totally
insane. If, during your hero phase, you
pretend to ride an imaginary horse, you
can re-roll failed hit rolls for the Averland
Runefang until your next hero phase. If
you actually talk to your imaginary horse
you can re-roll failed wound rolls as well.
Also: you can automatically win the game with a couple of Tomb Swarms?!

I haven't followed the Warhammer metaplot in a long time, and now I feel a hefty dose of 'get off my lawn' coming up. Well, most of my remaining WFB stuff is from the third edition era anyway. These days, my miniature gaming needs are fulfilled with Song of Blades and Heroes, so GW can do whatever they like to keep their investors happy.
As for the audio, these were pretty fun. And the tone was just right, made me want to play WFRP again. Granted, that is not the hardest thing to accomplish, but anyway...

As Age of Sigmar is official Baby’s First Warhammer (no tactical depth allowed, no skill required) I fully intend to play it with stuff from the Early Learning Centre. Schliech, £4.95, ready painted. Just glued it down to a 60mm round base, flocked it, and off we go.

BTW - @skunner I thoroughly enjoyed the podcasts you have released! Will there be more?

Thanks for the reminder, I had totally forgotten to tip my hat to @skunner.
As for the article, yeah... I really don't buy the 20%. Or maybe I just don't like their figures anymore. I really think there are so much more attractive figures for painters and collectors. And I bet even those that do just buy and collect the GW models, do so for a nostalgia kick for a game they used to play. And if there's no game today, there will be no nostalgia tomorrow.

I don't have the budget for buying into Age of Sigmar, and the style of most of the fluff isn't really to my taste (not that previous editions were either), but they do have some beautiful models that I enjoy looking at in White Dwarf.
This is the aforementioned Sylvaneth beetle queen.Spoiler
I say I don't care for most of the fluff; I do find the Flesh-Eater Courts hilarious, because they're repulsive ghouls and ghasts and zombies who are all convinced that they're brave warriors defending human civilisation from evil in the service of a noble king . . . all while they're wielding the remnants of the last person they ate as a weapon, or strapping skeletons to their back instead of a heraldic banner.
I mean, these guys think they're knights in shining armour:Spoiler
That is a beautiful miniatures but represents one of the reasons I just can't get into Age of Sigmar.
It's a lot nicer looking than the gold Sigmarite Space Marines though.
- My paintings skills simply aren't up to snuff to make that look good.
- I am primarily a game player, and, while pretty, that does not look like a miniature designed to be transported from game to game.
- Aesthetically I have mixed feelings. There's so much going on there that I don't know what to focus on.
- I just couldn't justify spending $130 on a single model that I just don't have the skills to make look very good.
I know what you mean. I admire a lot of the models produced by Games Workshop and Forge World, but at the same time I know my limits and that I wouldn't be able to do them enough justice to make the purchase sensible.
I'm not a gamer, at least at the moment, so transporting isn't an issue - but I do have a mountaineering cat, so unless and until I buy a lockable display cabinet (not exactly high on my priority list at this stage of my life) I also don't want to put anything too pricey and/or delicate on my shelves.
