Hi, first time posting here. Started tabletop gaming as a pass-time during the pandemic. I started with the GW First Strike box and then added the Dark Imperium box. I stumbled on the OPR rules set while browsing and I think this will be a much easier method for my kids (and myself) to start playing as the rules are far less complicated compared to the GW rules. I’m aiming on first starting with GFF while I get my armies painted and my scenery built, and gradually start playing the full GF game.
Recently I received a mail notice that the full rulebooks of both GF and GFF were updated, so I downloaded both new versions. When checking the website, I also noticed that the army book for the battle brothers/prime brothers was updated. In the new army books it seems that a lot of models from the DI box, which were there in the last version of the army book, are no longer listed. Was that a deliberate choice? It seems to me the new army book is aiming at the new Indomitus models? Luckily, I had the earlier versions as a hard copy, so I can still use all my units. Unfortunately, also the Battlescribe repositories have been lined up with the new army books. Will the older models be included in future updates?
Ok, I see. Those have been all collapsed into the Captain unit, because they were all identical except for 1 special rule each. So you can make a grave captain by buying grave armor and the melee gear, an ancient by buying the ancient banner, etc.
