Just a quick post today. Although i’ve been playing and enjoying a lot of Kings of War this year, I still have a massive hankering for 8th edition warhammer fantasy.
Many of the dedicated older forums (Herdstone, Asrai etc.) have seen massive reductions in footfall since AoS (although some of the admin said it occurred before then). Most is down to the fall of the old world but in some cases (such as with the oldhammer forum) it was likely due to the creation of a facebook group and most members just post there. Some of the forums have even been taken down for extended periods (which is one of the reasons I started the blog as I retain control over it and my posts will stay up as long as I want…)
A group of the players that still love and play whfb 8th edition have set up a new* forum. It is very active and everyone is really helpful and friendly, so if you still want to post about and discuss 8th ed, I really recommend giving in a visit (I can be found posting under the name Knoffles).

* ok by new I mean in the last few years though i’ve only just found it.
