State of Play – Ogre Kingdoms: An Askew Review

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Fenriryan's Blog, State of Play
After something of a hiatus (read as sheer bone idleness for a month), State of Play returns with something unusual - a review thats not quite a review - read on dear readers, read on....

Funny thing these Games Workshop releases...

In 40K you know whats gonna happen - the inevitable Codex Creep that pushes older Codex further from the lime light (by older I mean anything more than 3 codex ago). And as a result, Count As is rife through the 41st Millenium - hell, Im jumping on that particular bandwagon myself by using the Space Wolves codex to run a close approxiamation of a Deathwatch Command (with the add of a sinulge house rule ripped from the original Chapter Approved - but thats for another article).

But in Fantasy, we dont really have these issues. Each army book that comes out is considered in its own way (generally to cries of 'OVER POWERED'  admittedly, at leat for the first few reads), and there is no mass outcry of Army Book Creep, or Count As Fodder - its releasesdd, it cools, we play it, what ever.

And yet here have come Ogre Kingdoms....

Today is not a review of it as an army, but a review of what this release has meant to Beastmen players like me across the Old World. (I did warn is as an Askew Review)
