OK, so they’re coming in fast and furiously.
Well, some of the worst sounding rumors look to be true. We don’t know how to take these out of the context of the entirety of 6th edition, or if they are even completely true/read correctly/etc. but these are coming from Trade Reps at GW. They are literally reading them out of the book.
- Random Charges In. The exact mechanic we don’t know yet, but I keep hearing 2d6″, take the highest as difficult terrain. Wow I hope this is wrong as that screws so many armies. Let’s hope it’s actually 6″+D6″ or something similar.
- Snapfire. You can shoot assaulters as they come in, hitting on 6’s as I understand it. Not sure on this either, but the rule is in the book.
- Premeasuring in.
- Allies in regular games. The how and why of it is unclear, but I hope this is done right or it will utterly break the game if done wrong.
- Purchasing scenery. Could be cool, but again, depends on application. Who wants to see Long Fangs buying bunkers in every game? We’ll see how it pans out.
We’ll see, we’ll see! These rumors make me cringe on their own, but perhaps within the context of the overall game, they will be good fun….
