"Limited Edition" is a strong word. They'll be spunking all over the place and for a while with this.

My favorite is;
"Why should I trust you?
Come on! This is New Games WorkshopTM"
There's a lot going against that line. Also, broke out snickering when I read that. We shall see if you deserve our trust GW. We shall see.

If the rules are as good and sleek as they're promising, and we all hope, than GW will have earned some good will credit.
I very much approve of the core rules being free. It's a model used to good effect with other games. Warmachine/Hoards and the latest D&D edition are doing this and it's working really well. So, step one is good GW.

Or possibly replacing them. Its possible, slim possibility, that they are just discontinuing that set of them. I doubt it because GW but on the other hand making a new version of a thing is a total GW move.

Yup did that already.

Three "Factions" are Imperium, Chaos and Xenos.
Imperium is very padded out with 6 Astartes (Space Marines, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Grey Knights, Deathwatch) then Imperial Guard, Sisters of Battle, Custodes, Sisters of Silence, Mechanicus, Imperial Agents and Knights.
Chaos getting the stinky end of the stick again, has Daemons, Marines, Death Guard and Thousand Sons.
Xenos (wooo catch-all), gets pointy eared padding with Craftworlds, Harlequins, Dark Eldar, Ynnari, Tyrannids, Genestealer cults, Orks, Necron and Tau.
Xenos get a cult group in their faction but we can't have a Chaos Cultist group in the Chaos faction? Bah, bad show GW. Bad show.

Yeah the ally matrix pretty much, but what I was suggesting is they do away with the sepeate armies and make them mass groups. There wouldn't be allies, it would just be the big factions combined.

I like that better.
Doesn't really make sense to have Tyrannids ally with anyone, whatsoever.

They've switched out templates before, the set before the current white semi-transparent one was bright green as I recall. However, I'm having a horrible suspicion that they're gone for good and the days of actually having to take care how you maneuver a unit are over.

Because nobody needs a game with a high skill cap, amiright?

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.
