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?

For me the new Ork Codex is kind of a mixed blessing. I see the gaming aspect of orks greatly improved as they probably will be more towards my playing style. Modeling I actually see a decrease in modeling aspects. The looted vehicle was one of my favorite things and that is gone. Replaced with the looted wagon which in game play kinda sucks. Its not terrible but its not great. Like Scarpia I also am not going to be using orks that much in favor of going to Necrons as my main army and orks will be my second while I figure out how I really feel about the new codex. I won't give up on them totally but they also won't be my main army after 9 years.
