Hey Everyone! Adam, from TFG Radio, here to talk about what is on my mind and what’s pm my mind is new edition (not the group).
Well, we are getting more and more information about the new edition from Games Workshop.Unfortunately it is at a snails pace. At his rate I expect them to release the rules by Christmas with the only way of getting the complete ruleset is to print out all the Warhammer Community article and bind them in a book. The pace seems so slow that I fully expect them to talk about one model each day that will be in the box set. That should last them, and hold us off, for a while. in case you haven’t noticed, I am not a fan of the drip feed method that games Workshop is using.
Now I know many of you are excited about the new edition, and I am too. Some of you are happy with the way they are teasing the new rules that we will soon be seeing. Although this is a new way for them to promote the product, especially with the use of Twitch, I’m not sure I am a fan of it. When they show us the previews, they seem to be varying degrees of information given. They seem to tell us a lot about some things, but then don’t really tell us anything new about other things in the new edition. It can be frustrated at times not having the complete, or anything vlose to complete, picture. Then you have the click bait people that try to sell you on watching a game of the new edition, or the pre-new edition, when all they are really doing is playing Open Play using modified rules with the current edition. Sad really.
What Games Workshop should do is just go back to the old ways of releasing the game. When Games Workshop was planning to release a new edition of a game they would just let us know in an issue of White Dwarf, usually a month or two ahead. They would then just release the new edition along with the White Dwarf that told you everything you needed to know about the new edition. You didn’t have to deal with the guesswork of what the new rules would be like just by seeing one sentence, or have peopl over reacting because they didn’t like a rule that they read even though they still hadn’t seen the rest of the rules. We also wouldn’t get Snake Oil Salesman that try to get your clicks by claiming they were showing you games of the new edition when they don’t event have the complete rules, unless they are willing to break an Non-Disclosure Agreement just for a few clicks. Things were so much easier back then.
I know we can’t go back, so I will just have to deal with everyone complaining about knights that apparently can move around buildings or just the fact that we are getting a new edition at all. In the end it will all work out once we get the full set of rules. For me, I’ve waited long enough and I’m not getting any younger. The sooner we get the new edition, the sooner I can start yellow carding people for new rules violations.
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed the article. Let me know what you think and what rule are you excited about, in the comments section below.
