...like i was saying about 2nd edition 40k some people hold it up as the holy grail, others dont.
Hey Bits, I don't think 2nd ed was the holy grail it's just the version I played the most and knew the best. And it was far better than the edition that replaced it. I remember exactly how awkward and unbalanced some of it was.
My comparison was mostly about the target age group and the kiddification of 3rd ed.
I think GW have, by and large, done a good job balancing the new game and source books for a more mature audience again.
