Default 5th edition

I've just got back from my local GW games club and we had an intro to 5th ed and some of us older patrons played games using the new rules and all I can say is there very interesting!

I march before a martryed world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood
I urge you to be brave, I'll lead you to you destiny, I'll lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
FOR I AM KHORNE THE GOD OF WAR AND I WILL CUT YOU DOWN

I have done the same.

Counter assault makes things...interesting. You end up charging a unit and having it counter charge you before you realize the counter charge has placed it in assault range of a second unit of yours.

Which is great for my Worldeaters. I like the cover save for vehicles rule too no need to take extra armour any more. And there is the tank shock rule making a return and the vehicle battering ram rule too all great fun.

Be honest... wound allocation, thoughts? It just seems this would slow the game down immensly and continue to trivialize individual upgrades.

Pondering...

The ramming sems it will be quite a kick. After you drop off your marines send the rhino on a suicidal charge of doom. but they seem like some well balanced rules.

P.S. i dont thing that only troops being scoring is smart but whatever.

It didn't slow the game down at all and that included an assault with 48 plus attack dice being rolled. So honestly I don't think it will affect the game unless you are going to be picky about it.

I think the only reason they did that was so you wouldn't get armies of just 2 troop choices and then maxed out on the other sections i.e the classic 1 HQ 2 five man scout squads then 3 elite and 3 fast attack choices.

But then again I played with my Worldeaters and they only had 2 troop choice and I won mainly because I wipe out the oppositions troop choice.

So overall would you say improvement on 4th. edition?

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

I liked it but I suppose its down to the individual. And it will make me think about changing my usually 1500 and 2000 point armies, not a lot but just a few tweaks. But with all things there are going to be players that hate it, those who like it and those it will grow on.

Overall it seems to have added some common sense but I'm sure once I've read the rulebook I will find something I don't like and that is to be expected.
