The way the rules for 40k are atm make me think how armies like the Imperial Fists and Tau ever win a fight in stories.

Fantasy uses a winds of magic system. Long story short they have a randomly generated dice pool each turn for casting/dispelling. They also have all the core rulebook spells as a purchasable deck of cards for easy reference.

Well if they change the psychic rules to the shite that is fantasy 7th edition I will be quitting for good.

My first (and last game) of fantasy 7th resulted in all 3 mages killing themselves.

Those rules are shit.

Magic went to a high-risk/high-reward system. I rarely see many mages die from their miscasts, and they don't miscast unless they're forced or they're throwing large amounts of dice at a spell (or just roll badly). If anything the magic terrain is the worst part since even Beastmen and Wood Elves (two races who live in areas with magical woods) don't even get any form of protection from magical forests in the current rules. Not to mention the entire board can kill you if those rolls go badly.

Unconfirmed rumor. It's possible but I don't see it being all that likely.

But I could be wrong.

there are models banked from about a year ago but nothing has happened with them as yet,
I believe they will see the light of day,
but I have no idea about when and the WD rumour is just speculation due to no one being entirely sure whats happening yet

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
