With GW on the horizon for releasing 8th edition WHFB in July, apparently there will be army erratas to conform to the new 8th edition ruleset.

I'll be happy to proofread any fixes here for Army Bulder for Warriors of Chaos (my main army) and any others I happen to have.

How will the update for 8th edition occur? Will the previous main files become obsoleted? Since the main structure of the game, at least according to rumors, will change quite a bit, I expect this to be the case.

Pre-orders went on-line yesterday at 10:00am BST (and promptly broke the server ) and you should be able to get access to a preview copy at your local GW store by the end of the week, just in case you wanted to start compiling lists of things early.

Anyway, most of the changes are unrelated to stat-lines from what I can tell, so you'll mostly want to look at the updated "college" lores of magic and the new list of common magic items.

Other things of note; hand weapons with shields now give a 6+ ward save in CC rather than an extra +1 to your base armour, monsters get extra "stomp" attacks at very low initiative (and big monsters get more), and, apparently (I can't confirm this) some monstrous mounts combine their profiles with their riders somehow.

So, what's going to happen with 8th Ed? I guess that regular folk write up stuff for new Army Builder? Is someone going to write one for 8th Ed? Is someone doing it now? Will we have to wait until the new book is released to the public?

I just got Army Builder and am trying to tool around with the new 8th Ed rules. I'm hoping someone is working on the new edition.

Yeah, I'm equally curious to know if anyone is currently working on updating the Fantasy datafiles to function with 8th edition.

I had a go at editing the generic items and magic lores, but it's a challenge to interpret how the file has been laid out by the original author. I'm happy to contribute with any filling in of information, but if I was to update the files to 8th edition I'd probably need to start from scratch. I'd suggest waiting to hear from the original author first and take it from there.
