Hey everyone, Reece and Frankie reporting from Valhalla again!
So, the internet is still really bad and inconsistent, we have trouble getting online at all and can’t load much. Podcasts will be on hold until Sunday.
Valhalla itself is really cool. Very relaxing, lots of gsming , great food, and cool people to talk to.
However, we wanted to talk about some of the 40k talk of 7th and the unbound style of play everyone is talking about. For now, we don’t know much, but what we have seen is pretty wild. Potentially no FoC? That means unlimtitted potential for freedom in list building as well as unlimited room for breaking the game. My prediction now, without more facts, is that that style of play will probably be reserved for casual and narrative gaming, or for specialist tournaments like Ard Boyz.
For casual play, it would be awesome to take an army of all named characters in an X-Men style list against a buddy who had an army of cannon fodder and a named villain to have a fun, themed game. In a tournament? Not so much.
So, until we have more info, there’s not Much to say, really. We’ll have to wait and see. But I predict that it won’t be that bad and that tournaments will still go strong with house rules to curb the crazy stuff as we always have done.
What are you all thinking about it?
