More End Times stuff, this time pulled from /tg/. This time it's army comp:



Looks like they might be easing people into building armies differently.

I like the sound of those, so far. Never cared for the limits.

I agree. This gives them the chance to scale things down to a more reasonable size, add new and more dynamic skirmish components, update ALL the models for the game, and create a new environment. New isn't always bad. Scary, indeed, but not bad.

I've only just got back into 40k TT recently, since about 4th ed. Still not looked at picking a fantasy army up due to all of this. So I'm gonna wait until all the dust has settled and we know what's what. But honestly, they would have to screw it up beyond complete recognition for me not to buy an army again.

I think what we are likely to see is much less generic fantasy battle game, many of the core units of this game can be produced by third parties such as mantic at a reduced cost to the wargamer, GW know this and cant protect the IP as it stands, but if they wipe the slate clean, start afresh, rename everything, replace the range from the bottom upwards with fresh designes while allowing pre 9th minis as stand ins or equivalent to they can control there IP.
There is huge FU chapterhouse/mantic whiff about whats happening at the moment, but hey when you're on top of the pile the best way to get market share is to target those who tried to take it from you in the first place.
