So I have seen the End Times and I can tell you as predominantly a tournament gamer they are bleak… If you want to play in your garage and at your club with friends then End Times is amazing. Great models, fluff, new toys and now magic out of control. However I really think the argument to include this in the tournament scene is getting weaker by the book as they get more broken. “End Times Khaine” introduces two key changes to magic that lead me to this conclusion.
LoreMaster – Everyone yep that is right… everyone is a Loremaster.. your L2 now has access to every spell.. plus the new End Times spells. Yes that is 4 or 5 banishments in a light council.. Great..
4D6 Winds – and the 2nd again plucked from Storm of Magic (and we don’t use this in tournaments) is 4D6 winds. This really does jump the shark…
I really don’t want to join any Nerd rage but for me – you play End Times – everything or you play none of it at events. I’m coming down on the side of none of it until we know what is left for “Warhammer” as we knew it.
