Hahahaha! Back in action! So... you want the rules for low fantasy, eh? Take a look at White Dwarf 313 for more info on the exact definition of the genre, but for our purposes, it is essentially an emphasis on a low magic environment and rank and file troops.

For Warhammer, this translates to some very specific requirements on r-me selection that I shall re-post here for your browsing convenience.

Armies should be composed of 1200 points with the usual restrictions on troop types and characters, meaning NO LORDS CHOICES. There are no special characters allowed. Also, their will be some aditional restrictions in place to ensure that all armies comply with the "Low Fantasy" gritty theme.

When compiling your army, you may choose ONE of these 10 restrictions to ignore, in which case you must still comply with the requirement listed after.

1) No more than 2 characters in an army.
IF IGNORED: No more than 3 characters in an army.

2) No character may cost more than 125 points with all equipment, options, magic items and special abilities included.
IF IGNORED: No character may cost more than 150 points with all equipment, options, magic items and special abilities included.

3) No wizards higher than level 1.
IF IGNORED: No wizards higher than level 2.

4) No magic Items over 25 points.
IF IGNOREDL: No magic items over 50 points.

5) No more than one magic item per character or regiment.
IF IGNORED: One character or regiment may have 2 magic items.

6) No more than one Special choice.
IF IGNORED: Up to 2 special choices.

7) No Rare choices.
IF IGNORED: Up to 1 Rare choice.

No more than one war machine or chariot CHOICE.
IF IGNORED: No more than two war machine or chariot choices.

9) No large monsters.
IF IGNORED: Up to one large monster.

10) No flying units.
IF IGNORED: Up to one flying unit.

All armies must adhere. If an army would require you to break one of these rules, then that MUST be your one exception.

This should, in theory, limit armies to low fantasy themes. However, in an effort to encourage you to limit yourselves, I will make public the fact that a certain amount of points WILL BE AWARDED to players for army selections made on theme and in the SPIRIT OF THE GAME. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or post them here. Any glaring oversights in my rules will be corrected ASAP.

Scoring: There will be 120 points available... the points for appearance are counted seperately and will not count towards overall score.
You can get a total of 60 points in your battles, meaning that if you win ALL your missions and recieve ALL the secondary objectives, you get 60 points.
There are 30 points awarded by your opponents for sportsmanship and fairness of your army. So play nice. There will also be 30 points available for composition and Spirit of the Game based on the regulations listed above.

Have fun making those lists, everybody, and as always, feel free to post any questions.

In answer to a question that came up concerning the Brettonians and their allotment of characters, allow me to reiterate:

"All armies must adhere. If an army would require you to break one of these rules, then that MUST be your one exception."
