    Given that “The Old World” is basically just 16th Century Europe with some Fantasy nonsense thrown in for good measure, I don’t think you would need to make many changes to be free of copyright threats and still feel like “The Old World”. Or just pick any old generic fantasy rules, use your warhammer armies and pretend that it’s a battle in The Old World. Because that’s what you were doing when you played warhammer fantasy battle. The rules and the setting aren’t really linked

    Now there’s a game I haven’t seen in some time.  I remember stealing all the knights and using them as Bretonnians.  I have a copy of the original Space Crusade and, although tis now quite dilapidated, a copy of the original rogue trader book which I dare not even take off the shelf for fear it’s cover may finally just fall off.

     

    I think it’s fair to say whatever The Old World is, it won’t be 80’s/90’d oldhammer 🤣

    As hinted, my main motivation for getting into WHFB back in 4th/5th edition was its’ popularity – meaning it was always easy to find people to play with, MUCH easier than all other game systems put together.

    For several years in the early 00’s, I even tried getting people into Fantasy Warriors, Slaughterloo/Flintloque, Erin, Fairy Meat  and a variety of other systems, all of which I liked better than WHFB, going as far as telling them they could use whatever minis – mostly Citadel – they already had and offering to provide them with photocopies of the rules.

    Nothing doing.

    If it didn’t say GW on it and/or was older than maybe 2 years, no one wanted it, no one knew it and no one wanted to know it.

    1 close friend was the only one willing to try Slaughterloo, using his Citadel Undead army.

    I don’t even know if there is a mini gaming scene currently active in my area, the remnants of what used to be the largest game store just closed a few months ago, I just recently discovered a new (?) store tucked into a corner between a barber shop and a restaurant (which used to be scooter store), their windows are blacked out so you can’t see inside, their hours are very inconvenient, but it says ‘card, tabletop and board gaming’. We shall see….

    I agree about the miniatures, very, VERY few of Citadel minis produced since the early 00’s have captured my attention, most of them are spindly abominations, twisted caricatures that would have disgusted even a Nurgling back in the 80s. That trend started with Rackham’s Confrontation , especially the Dwarves of Mid-Nor. Whoever designed those…I do NOT want his nightmares….

    Not to mention the fact that they are PLASTIC, but cost more than METAL minis cost back then. I thought US $ 19.99 for a regiment box of 20 Clanrats or whatever was an acceptable price, I don’t even want to know what they cost today.
