Lately a new menace has begun to threaten the games we know and love so much. What’s this new threat you ask? Well its greater than the religious nuts or the rising price of metals and there’s a big hint in the title about it, so read on for more.
True line of sight is the new big thing. Both 40k and Warhammer Fantasy have in their most recent additions moved to this system and it seems to be the new up and coming thing. It is a very simple concept at heart. Basically, if the model can “see” what is trying to see, then it can in fact see it. Simple, easy, effective, realistic, at least at first glance.True line of sight has begun to replace more abstracted systems that GW and other games systems used in the past. Gone are rules like size categories and only being able to see through 6 inches of woods. Now what you see is what you see, its simple. But its killing our games, it is overall one of the worse things to happen to wargaming, ever.
