Weapon If they makes a haims of it, then they'll change it before they lose too many sales.

We would do well to remember that GW re-made the abysmal 3rd edition Chaos Codex into the 3.5 Codex that we got, purely because people hated it. And considering how much more important the BRB is when compared to a mere codex, I doubt that they'd screw up the newest edition that badly.

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.
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.

Serpion5 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.

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

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.

chromedog 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).

Obithius 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.
