So as the years have passed since Warhammer Ancients/Medieval rules stopped being published did you find a replacement?
I'm sure some stayed with the rules and didn't care if anymore army books came out.
I tried Clash of Empires, Neil Thomas rules, Hail Caesar and even Kings of War. No fix yet, though I'm about to give War and Conquest a try.
A) stayed with the Warhammer
B) replaced it with ****
C) still looking

I have always been puzzled by gamers who wholesale abandon a set of rules because it's "no longer supported".
Well, that's precisely what is wrong with Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40K. They're TOO well supported. As soon as all "races" are covered by a new codex, out comes a brand new edition, starting a whole new cycle.
What if a set of rules is perfectly fine as it is?

+1 to John the OFM.

(But what does OFM stand for?)

old fat man or maybe opinions frequently mocked, nah!

Still use the rules from before Warmaster Ancients.

I think John the OFM has hit the nail on the head – if you like a set of rules why would you change just because they stop printing them- surely you already have a copy?

Concur with the Old Fart Man about not abandoning rules.

I play a couple rule sets where we didn't buy into the "updates". Maybe they're still published and updated, maybe not.

It cuts you out of sponsored official tournaments (as all official sponsored play seems to be tourneys now, or at least tracked long term). Then again, it opens you up to new players who are willing to invest $5 USD in the 5th edition WH40K rules (which I just did) and $2 USD each for a couple of codices. Very similar to getting "retired" minis from officially sponsored game lines. After reading them, I feel I overpayed.

To the OP:

D) Never played WA/M.

Staying with Warhammer Ancients.

Stopped using Warhammer Ancients because the rules didn't seem fun or satisfying to our group, not because they aren't supported

Mister Tibbles02 Sep 2020 1:06 p.m. PST

Warmaster Ancients and ADLG.
