Looks like every army book is on there. I don't think I'm the lone guy out there hanging on to WFB in the Old World... (Maybe I am?)

BTW, after a decade long break, I'm jumping into the new 8th edition 40K.  It's that good now...

I believe Furion has abandoned that project.  He's been keeping himself busy complaining about how slow we are updating things in the 9th Age...

You could try the 8th Edition for Life forum.  They had some promising looking rules at one point but I don't know how active their site is these days.  http://eefl.freeforums.net/

@Phil, I'm actually a member of the EEFL site and I've spoke with a good number of the guys in Rochester, NY that are still playing 8th.

I know Kevin Coleman is an irregular contributor to The 9th Age but I don't know what he's playing now or if EEFL is still growing.  I loved some of their army lists though!

Yep, I still say that 8th edition is the best version of WFB that GW ever created. I'm still happy to play it.

Braulio gets a kick out of calling me a "Game Hipster" who is that guy playing discontinued games. Honestly though, I have yet to play a game (Outside of possibly 9th Age) that scratches the same itch that Warhammer Fantasy Battles does. I don't have anything against Age of Sigmar. However, to be honest 40k and AoS are so close to one another, they might as well use the same 6-10 pages of rules and call it done. In some cases, I actually think that AoS looks more futuristic.
