Hello! I’m returning to wargaming, possibly having been bored out of my mind by seven weeks of enforced inactivity.
Anyway, turns out my old haunt has 'sploded. I’ve been looking for replacement venues for my armies, and have narrowed it down to The Ninth Age and Kings of War, both of which look very tempting, in slightly different ways.
Before I buy the rulebooks for this, though, I have one question that is so staggeringly dense I don’t think the Mantic website bothered to address it. What’s the difference between the “Kings of War” rules ebook, and the “Kings of War (Gamers’ Edition)” rules ebook, the latter of which claims to contain everything required to play, and is somewhat cheaper? From what I can gather, I’d need one (both?) of the above, which will cover my greenskins, and possibly the “Uncharted Armies” book to cobble together an opposing army from a couple of old Battle Masters sets (plus some sundries).
Also - more generally - presuming other people here went through the “which game to play” decision making process - what made you decide on this one?
