Whilst the Org chart is a nice idea and I see the reason behind it, I concur that % lists should make some kind of a return

Anon from /tg/. Might just be echoing things though but this was from this morning:

Believe me or don't, you'll know in 3 weeks either way:
24th May is a new 40k rulebook.
It is not a new edition, its more inline with eh gamer edition from last year.
It isn't filled with drastic changes, the rules mechanics from escalation and stronghold are in, as are some interesting tweeks.
Percentages are not in.

I'm confused, so, enlightenment would be appreciated.
I've used percentage points with non-GW systems, but I don't like it for small games*. Although I don't tend to use named 'big characters' myself, others who I game with do.
Likewise, in small games it could stop Tau from building established XV8 type command squads. No doubt the same will apply to many more armies.
Still, in the end I will have to wait until the new rules appear.
*Small games - 1000 points or under

Well, I'm curious to see what this looks like and think @Tawa should do a book review

Had a conversation with some voices in the walls and here's what I've learned:
-No known changes to psychic powers
-Assault changes where on the table at one point to try and make it more on par with shooting but it's unclear if they made it in or not right now
-Escalation and Stronghold Assault rules are in, but profiles are not (and they were added to try and balance the Riptide and Wraithknight, paticulalry for Imperial Armies who don't have a lot of tools to shut them down fast enough)
-Just one book, not three.
-New Starter isn't Marines and Orks .

My local GW has had a change of opening hours - they're opening later every day, but open until late on a Friday as that is when pre-orders will now be announced. This new set-up starts next week.

Pre-orders will go up at around 7PM on the 16th.

From /tg/, take as much salt as you feel it needs:

I was bitching to my GW store manager today about the staticness of the Eldar bikers and he told me to wait for the 24th...

Anyone else anything about New Eldar models?

do you think they'll ever put official word in the rulebooks regarding Forgeworld rules?

also new jetbikes? maybe we'll finally see these.

About frickin' time we got new jetbike models. I remember when the DE reavers came out it said in the design notes that the sculptors were instructed to make a "generic" template that could serve as a starting point for both elder armies.
