6th Ed 40k imminent.

Again, sorry for spelling/grammar issues, writing on my phone. Anyway, 6th looks to be on the horizon. We’re getting word from mulitple sources that gw retailers are being told to clear out 5th Ed rule books in preparation for the new rule set.

What this means is that we shall soon see if we get a did or a revitalization of 40k. I certainly hope it’s the later.

Some of the rules we’ve seen with fliers seem to indicate that possibly the leaked rule set was accurate, or at least partially accurate. Rules for getting BS improvements for holding still, rules that indicate fliers will be in the main rules as more than just glorified skimmers, etc. With gw’s recent price shenanigans, I certainly hope they can recover from the fumble. With the hype other games are getting now, the time is ripe for a big shift. Peoe are realizing that this hobby is more about the community of friends than any one game. Gw needs a big play here to stay on top of the game and if they give us randomhammer 40k,, they may be jb for a very ride awakening.

Either way, we shall very soon see what is what.

I told ya, man. The ‘Fantasy 40k’ stuff is nothing to worry about. We’re getting something long deserved. Peoples’ cries have not fallen on deaf ears, despite what everone likes to think.

This guy has given me ample proof he’s not blowing smoke up my ass. He’s built a whole new army around what he knows and says it will all be super fun by the time we get it. I think GW may be running some misdirection using their mongers. Either way, we’ll know for sure in 30 days. 😀

Not really. I still have my 5th ed book. If it’s as horrible as everyone fears… for some reason? We always have the old stuff to fall back on. 🙂

I think it’ll be fine, anyway. 🙂 Though I have actually pondered playing some 4th ed 40k just for something fun. I have the book and the codex i need laying around somewhere.

Should all be moot, but I have Dystopian Wars to fall back on should all be lost. Tellin’ ya, Reece, you should really try it out. Fantastic ruleset, and something fun to fall back on when you get burnt out here and there. 🙂

Really? None of the fleets did it for ya? Wow. Though they have released a couple new nations and Russia is fast approaching. Maybe have another look 🙂 If you do play, pick which ever nation looks coolest and learn them. The game’s so well balanced that it doesn’t really matter which one; which is a VERY good thing.

I like the aesthitic because it’s over-the-top like 40k, but in a slightly different way. The rules are VERY good, however. I’m still learning all of it, but when I asked advice of one of the local veteran players about what unit’s to get for my Prussians (who I dig for the cool WWII/Bismark look) he said to get what I think looks the coolest/most fun because the game is so well balanced, that your tactics are what really decide most battles. I’d have a look at what’s out now (even the massive ground unit releases, too!) and try out a game. I think you’d LOVE the way it plays. It’d call it a lot like chess in that it’s easy to learn, but impossible to master. A huge amount of depth that is very smooth with very few ambiguous moments. When I’m not playing 40k, DW is definately what fills the gap 🙂

For sure. Squeeze some in before we’re neck deep in a new edition of 40k. 😀

I’ve been hoping this for a while. I’m hoping this rule set will be the thing that makes me want more than ever to repaint my AoBR marines as the Citrus Marines and drop juicers on my enemies. Hopefully it makes the game fun again as I have been told it once was.

I’m hopin for a complete revamp, not just a few minor tweaks, but I certainly don’t want it to be like 8th ed fantasy.
