Well, I hear people say embarrasing to still have a 5th edition codex. But at the same time, that's like what? 4-5 years ago max (except for BA). 6th was only a brief moment in time that lasted 2 years.

It's still impressive that they are churning them out so quickly, but I do hope 7th and their codexes will last a bit longer and that the quick release pace will slow down (with maybe the odd new model/dataslate in between).

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!

Personally I think the armies will go over more to a sporadic update and dataslates after everyone is updated to 7th (Where everyone have their own tactical cards etc). It seems to be the way things are going.

Solely my own opinion though :D

But it was never really a problem, because the fluff is entirely mutable and you could ignore all the crap in the codexes anyway. Besides, Ward was far from the only one doing shitty stuff with fluff.

And yes, I know he's gone know, and I'm sad about it because he was one of the few actual RULES writers GW had worth a damn.

I have a suspicion that this is why we have 7th edition now because Ward left in May 14, GW wanted to replace all the work with his name on or the rules that he appeared in. It does look like a douche move by GW but if we can get good rules & good fluff that would be a big bonus

brets are like the sisters of fantasy, untouched and left alone for ages, i think they have a book in 5th/6th edition, and they only gay if paint them in a rainbow colour scheme,have psychic manbags, there gun shoot flowers and there battle cry is "I Am What I Am"

GW Gamers wanting the opposite since 75
I think personally the best release schedule was the start of 6th when it was a 3 month cycle including a 40k and fantasy book, now it just all seems to merge into each other.

How come he left? I never even realised.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Mat Ward made good rules.

Unbalanced compared to those written by others, but internally? They were pretty well balanced (Fantasy 8th edition magic, notwithstanding - and that's more down to how some unupdated armies were able to capitalise on the radically different mechanic), with several options. Purifiers, Coteaz, Paladins were all fairly well done. Some options are clearly better than others (I never saw Interceptors, but that was down to the core mechanics, more than anything).

His fluff writing (or his approval of said fluff before some clever cunt comes in and says "he may not have written all of it) reads like a 13 year old hyper on sugar so much they can taste colours - which funnily enough is their target audience - which oddly enough, as older sarcastic gamers, seem to put on the newer younger up and coming gamers.

I am wondering what a Grey Knights Land Raider is. No other Marine Faction has it's own boxed Land Raider. Is this a new model with Psycannons? I hope so.
