I have well and truly fallen out of the hobby, something I never thought would actually happen. 8th ed shook me, and I stubbornly clung to 7th like a drowning man, but this new direction the fluff has taken is too much for me.

I refuse to give Games Workshop any more of my hard earned cash.

Have you considered getting into more skirmish gaming? There are some nice settings out there.

Between cash constraints and a lack of settings which capture me in the same way, no I have not really. It's a pity, but that's the way it is. :(

Is fair enough. I'm not doing much gaming at all; I got to the Uni's tabletop society sometimes but mostly end up boardgaming rather than anything else.

Yeah, I'm getting my gaming fix from the 3 Coins sessions, which are a surprising amount of work to organise, run and then recap.

Back on topic though, I don't think I will ever reconcile with this new direction.

Yeah - Warhammer was always meant to be a bit of a mix of low and high fantasy, but it's now... so high fantasy it's getting to "arsonist on a weed farm" levels.

I loved that line. :P

I think my biggest disappointment is with the loss of the world itself. I had a lot of time invested in the setting itself. It was a fantastic setting, but it has now been reduced to a heap of bubbles floating around...

You should check out 9th age PG.
It's pretty good. Not excellent, but it works.

I do wonder whether AoS will get more world building over time - I feel like without it they'll have difficulty keeping people coming back.
