Anticipation can lead to disappointment: New Codices

This is not a judgment on the imminent release (tomorrow -- woohoo) of the Orks, just an idea for a discussion point.

I am a big Ork fan & player, but trepidation resulting from previous 'dex releases that I have been waiting for (BAs for example) have me girding loins for disappointment, from this one.

I know that it is a case for "wait until you get your hands on it", but the rumours/ sneaks and official GW releases have me confused as to how I should feel.

Modelling; I think that I'm going to love ----- Gaming; I'm not so sure.
I'll have a better opinion once I've tried it out - obviously.

Scarpia is vehemently opposed to this one, and I've seen others that have changed their gaming lives because of one Codex change in their favourite army or an opponents.

But will this release have me running for the hills screaming "NERF!"??
I doubt it, but I may be unhappy.
Why should I be unhappy? after all it is a dynamic, absorbing game that naturally evolves/devolves.

Am I wrong to take this attitude, how do others feel or cope?

the problm with the new chaos codex is that it goes against so much of the fluff, havocs with the icon of khorne anyone khorne is for close combat, and the actual legion troops are horrific against some armies, there is a guy in my local workshop who has 2 different armies and you only get to fight against the one thats best against your army(thousand sons really suck if you play saim hann. but to be honest most of the older guys at my workshop armies are just as bad
rereleasing codexes that arent that badly broken is annoying anyway there are armies out there that need a makeover a lot more than the chaos and orks and probably because of this are not as popular so wont get a look in for ages,
