I think it would make perfect sense for Warhammer to move to a Warmahordes type model of combining the two games. Some people really seem to enjoy the flexibility of it. Both systems still have slightly different rule sets and mechanics but it seems to work. If you take Chaos daemons as an example of crossing over the games you could consider that as the test model for a wider adoption. They're often regarded as a good army to have if you want to toy around in both systems with a lower investment than buying two completly seperate armies.

That said I'd really like to see GW adopt the stat cards model that warmahordes uses. I've been contempating creating some for keeping track of boon table rolls, wounds etc easier.

am I missing something? as this currently sounds about as useful as using a flamethrower on an active volcano and twice as pointless

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?

Either one must be your primary detachment, or you can have a sideboard of sorts. I don't know fore sure and both are speculation.

We'll have to see, it may just be pure speculation or a misconstrued sentence

Still not a bad idea to do that. With how iterative GW makes editions most things with be largely the same so that'll make learning a new edition easier (assuming it's actually coming, if it isn't then learning the current edition is still mandatory to play).

Dear GW,

By all means, continue to make cool models and release black library and background books. I only ask that you CEASE and DESIST writing game rules and/or mechanics. Just let Fantasy Flight make and test all of your game rules, they're much better at it.

Regards
A fan.

Now now, GW has proven from time to time they do fine with rules. The problem is a lack of consistency. A standardized points costing system would do wonders for 40k.
