Well... I've played one game, and it's got pros and cons.So, now that I've been gone forever and a day, and still aren't really back, I have to ask a sensitive question...
How do you feel about Age of Sigmar?
Yeah, with Git. Yes, one can do rollbacks but only as long as you're doing your pushes in such a way as to make it store that version in the history. More than once we've had to merge changes where one misstep caused all the progress to be lost. Should be easy enough to roll back right? Nope, because with Git, there's no central repo. Each node, including the GitHub site itself is considered a peer, so if you want to rollback, each node will have a different history. When all that stuff was lost, the developer who was working on it should have been able to recover his work, but it looks like he wasn't committing changes locally.WHAT IS THE POINT OF VERSION CONTROL IF YOU CAN'T REVERT TO PREVIOUS VERSIONS EASILY? THAT'S LIKE....THE WHOLE POINT!
Had any experiences quite like that?
I've heard a lot of Fantasy players that are greatly unhappy with it. Seem's I can't visit a wargaming website without hearing someone cast plagues on it. You make it sound fun, though. I kind of want to take it up myself, since I love the GW Dwarves models and free rules. >_> I'ma wait though, until I know if they're going to keep supporting the original Fantasy stuff.Well...

I REALLY like the simplicity. Warhammer Fantasy was WAY WAY WAY too complex and I played it more for the social interaction and fluff than for any love of the rule set itself. They seem to have done a great job getting a very simplistic rule set wile still allowing for plenty of tactical flexibility. In that, I give them an 'A.'
Balance is a problem, because there's no points system or balancing mechanism of any kind, so that puts the onus of balance on the players. Not a bad thing per se, but that makes AoS absolutely unsuitable for tournaments. That's fine with me as I've attended tournaments but I don't really like to play competitively. Games Workshop has been pushing for a more narrative approach and I think this will help.
That said, the game plays very similarly to Warhammer 40K, and when I was playing I found myself wishing I was pushing Space Marines around instead of Knights. So while I'm glad I still have a game to use my Bretonnians with, I'm not sure I'll devote a whole lot of time to it since I like 40K better.
Actually they are. You can download army lists for ALL of the old WHFB factions on the same webpage where you can get the free rules.

Destiny (the game)?
Back in the day, I often did weekend long mega 40K battles... oh...Nice. Well, at least they didn't go half hog...
Of course, now I'm in the boat of wondering whether I should go ahead and buy some Dwarf models before they become scarce. XD
All night gameathon, or all night paintathon?
James 1:5What is your favorite Bible verse?
Jealousy. So much jealousy. Still haven't made it to a gaming group. But on the positive side, I'm comfortable with my army now (got some Gun mages and Rangers) to the point I'm hoping I can get some gumption and visit the FLGS.Back in the day, I often did weekend long mega 40K battles... oh...
