  1. I still don’t know what to think… I’ll still doggedly hold to my faith in the hideously flawed 6th ed. Squishy terminators, yay.
    I’m looking forward to new kits but SO concerned for the story. That gif of Beaker with his mutant pinky fingers is pretty much spot on.

    • Uncertainty is never fun, and as someone who didn’t want the story to advance (and then loved it when it actually did) I remain optimistic. Cautiously optimistic, but optimistic nonetheless.

  2. Mate, you know being both levelheaded and cautiously optimistic will set the internet Inquisition upon you. Better beware. 😉

    Naw, you pretty much summed up my stance on what we know so far. It looks to be pretty great.

  3. The real benefit from ditching all the Dexes at once isn’t the trade-off with free Unit Rules from here on out, it’s the fact that it let them do the badly needed hard reset and change all the other stuff in one go. It sucks having a bunch of books outdated at the same time, but I think it will be worth it to clear out so much of the problematic stuff from 7th.

    Also, speaking of which, one of the things that really boosted my confidence was when they mentioned that they’d consulted with people like Mike Brandt and Reece Robbins, who run some of the biggest 40K Tournaments in the world, and have both a deep understanding of the Game and a vested interest in a balanced system that will give Players of all Factions good reason to come to their events.

  4. Speaking as someone who hasn’t touched 40k since 3rd edition I’m very excited to get abck into the main game with a less ponderous set of rules. Oh and i’m enjoying bumbing around your blog! Cheers.

      • It was supposed to say bumbling…but I guess it still works! Thanks, i’m looking at starting a Crimson Fists army when the new edition hits.
