Possibly the best response I've heard to a question like this in a long time. You could worry and fret and pull out your hair but that's not gonna help anything so why bother?

I went back to playing 2nd edition years ago,so I don't really mind what GW do with 40k at the moment. If they come up with yet another rule set I'll give it a go, but if I don't think it gives a better game I won't use it.

If they simplify it any further it will simply be tiddlywinks.

Doesn't worry me though. Plenty of other rule sets out there for me to use my mandollies with (and most don't care whose models I use).

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

They could just make it a single die roll for each round. 1 you lose the game, 2-3 you lose a unit, 4-5 enemy loses a unit, 6 you win the game. No movement required, no force organizations or points costs, just bring whatever you want, no tedious tactics or strategies. Games over in like 2 minutes once you get setup.

I don't worry about that but I do worry they will make a new version as bad as the great big steaming pile of shit that WHFB has become.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

That I can sympathize with. I'm not a huge fan of magic, but with the way it works now if you don't bring some to the table or shut it down, you might as well scoop.

I can't see it getting that bad with 40k, but I can always be wrong about that.

Haven’t been too happy of the 5th ed, so I’m looking optimistically towards 6th.

40k has no equivalent of magic though. Not in a gameplay sense.


I don`t see what they could do that would fuck it over to the same extent as was done to WHF. Incidentally, I don`t mind the new WHF rules but I was never reliant on magic and am mostly able to deal with it. Mostly.

You sir are onto something there! Get it boxed, put a fancy name on it and get selling...

Everything gets dumbed down these days, people want a quick fix, or what MMORPG players call instagrats, playstation3 and Xbox trophies are a good example of this. Some games you get a trophy for moving FFS.
