earth127 Mostly simplification reduction of rules bloat (A better tought out AoS), curbing of the excessive balance issues (I'd do this by keeping an app/list of updated points values, formation/organisation chart benefits costing points to have but you would still be battleforged even if you don't pay the points and a more evenly spread focus by GW

Battlescribe works great, is free with ads or a couple bucks without, and is constantly updated by the community. You can even manipulate the data files yourself if you'd like on your desktop, I got fed up with the lack of Angel's Blade Formations added so I did them all for myself.

It would for sure be great if GW did something as well though.

Khorne's Fist Whatever about streamlining and removing the preponderance of random rolls, what I really want is a proper army builder app or website. A new edition would be the perfect time to roll one out. I've been playing Flames of War and Bolt Action a lot over the last few years, both of which have easy accessible army builders. If you buy a digital codex, you should get access for free, or you can buy access to a specific codex for a nominal fee.

WOW... getting an explosion is hard enough in 7th, and you want to make it harder? You do realize that only Lascannons and Melta weapons can one shot you right?

Just be happy that an Autocannon, or Missile Launchers, can't one shot stuff anymore.

If your idea does happen, I can be happy that Rhinos, chimeras, and raiders are going to be super effective.

I propose that we post 1 or 3 single sentences.

Mine:

1) Cut the randomness in stuff that affects army character, e.g. psychic powers, warlord traits, and pay points instead.

2) Offer guidelines for alternate unit activation play.

3) Lost hull points should equate with lost effectiveness on the battlefield...

While we're at it, let's get the per-vehicle unique damage charts back.

Nothing better than sniping the driver of a Land Speeder out of his seat with a single retreating Grot who had to hit on a 7+ and the gunner failing to take over the controls (this actually happened in 2nd to me)
Likewise, it doesn't make sense for a Wraithlord to be stunned.

Ok, i know that the above is pure fantasy, esp. the last point.
Honestly, they should have done this years ago when publishing was actually relevant. Right now GW's rules should be a free "service."

GW can publish books for illustration and fluff purposes but the rules should be available as a Web service. There's no reason GW can't manage the rules and especially the points values online. They should be in a curated database where the values are adjusted as the game changes. There should be no "meta." The points should be statistically a 0 sum game. If a new powerful army is added the relative value of other armies should be adjusted to compensate.

JAMOB I dunno mate ómaybe not the last one, but the rest seem not too ridiculous (granted, this is GW)

diomede.80 - A flying creature that opts to jinx will make a disorderer charge on the following turn, in addition to snap fire.
- Absolutely NO kind of save that succeeds on a 2+ can be rerolled under any circumstances
- drop D weapons or rewrite them entirely
- nerf ridiculous monstrous creatures rules, esp. compared to vehicles
- publish all codex at the same time and write them all together, with real mutual playesting and balance in mind

Gret79 I'd like to go back to buying specific psychic powers. It made psykers so much more useful when you could plan round what they had. But nowadays, all you'd see is the most powerful powers all the time.
Electrodisplacement and writhing worldscape everywhere - So on that basis, I'd like to see a complete overhaul of the psychic powers.
Balance them all out and then be able to pay for specific ones.
If GW can manage that, I'll ask them for world peace next
