Pretty much as I suspected, mostly subtle buffs to vehicles and subtle nerfs to infantry. Infantry may be able to do a bit more damage to other infantry, but they'll get cut down in droves losing a point from FNP and cover saves, and be more likely to get stuck in no-man's-land with random charges.. 6th will be all about taking maximum Dedicated Transports and escorting them to objectives, if this holds.

Start ordering your Rhinos and Razorbacks now.

Probably means that basic games are going to be nearer to 2k than 1.5k, as now. I don't mind, you can play a bigger game in the same amount of time...

All that is important is known.

Pretty everyone already has Rhinos and Razorbacks already thanks to 5th edition, so why would they need to order them?

And if you noticed the vehicle WS mechanic (when moving they have WS1) that means that infantry will consistently either hit vehicles on a 3+ in close combat or automatically (WS0 when stationary). Additionally if you read the full hull points rumor (vehicles get a set number of hull points that are removed with each successful pen or glancing hit and when they run out they're wrecked) they'll be dying a lot faster to concentrated tank fire unless the the damage chart gets a major overhaul.

Seriously, this is like the 3rd or 4th time I've seen this in the last week and it seems people are cherry picking which rumors they're looking at to claim what 6th edition is going to "ruin".

Now for some historical context: 5th edition had this too coming out and it wasn't the game ruiner that people were claiming, and honestly I don't see 6th edition being that way either. It's going to be a new way with our plastic/metal/resin/Finecast men/women/aliens/daemons with our friends. Maybe it'll be more competetive, maybe it won't. Either way it's not the sign of the end times and the Ragnarok isn't going to occur just because 6th edition is going to hit.

Well at least the rumoured vehicle changes make Gauss a genuine option again for Necrons. In 4th ed. it was possible to 1-shot vehicles with a single glancing hit, perhaps 6th ed. will be especially kind to Necrons and make that lost dream a reality once more.

All that is important is known.

This is a massive change that primarily impacts on Xenos, as usual, just not Nids in a negative way. Marines are more capable of surviving a turn in the open than anything that isn't T4 with a 3+, and it massively neuters Fast Skimmers, if they follow the same movement rules, as they will no longer be able to claim objectives going last, as you cannot move Flat Out and Disembark.

Ugh, only have a pair of Rhinos that are usually configured as tanks. Not really interested in more until they upgrade DA though...not that DA troops have to hoof it otherwise.

Transmission looks interesting, is it possible plot is happening in 40k? Insanity!

I'm not quite that bad.....4 Chaos Rhinos, 6 Sisters Rhino/Immolaters and 3 Exorcists (Rhino Chassis), but yeah, I'm done buying Rhinos for a while. I'm really hoping for a viable Infantry option to become available again (I'm essentially looking for something that isn't overpowered (thus invalidating armies....again), just functional without the preverbial metal boxes) .
