Warhammer 8th edition is coming out soon (not that this is news to anyone). It's been a long time since I played it, as the 40k side of things has dominated my gaming for a long time now. I originally played High Elves and have since played Bretonnians. Due to getting various boxed sets, I've been amassing quite an Empire force as well, which has so far lay untouched and unpainted. And I've been eyeing Wood Elves for a while now. I still have tons of miniatures lying around, waiting to be painted. Maybe this is just the thing to get me into it again. (so many games, so little time...)
I'm very tempted to pick up the new book. Will I have the chance to play Warhammer very much, if at all? Probably not. And it's hard to justify spending $75 for nostalgia's sake. On the other hand, it just might get me back into playing Warhammer... But considering the calculations I just did above, I might have convinced myself that it's more than worth it.
