Yea. There's the odd bit of cool art - 10019018 for example - but I'll never understand the praise the old editions of the game gets, beyond it being pure, blinkered nostalgia. Cringe-enducing comedy, idiotic 'Metal' overtones...the modern tendancy to make everthing overly GRIMDARK is annoying as well, but so, so much better than what came before.

>> No.10019099

The rule book is filled with fluff. Every page is overflowing with it. Rules for everything, ideas for everything.

>> No.10019126


The Grimdark was added in the 90s, as that decade did to so many franchises.

It's only very recently that 40k is approaching something resembling a respectable setting. The process is two steps forward, one step back - Every time Black Library describes a believable Imperium, Matt Ward comes along and "derp derp 1000 Ultramarines safeguard a third of the galaxy".

>> No.10019141

>Because you haven't read Rogue Trader.

Yes, I have. I bought a copy of the old Rogue Trader book from Ebay, just to see if it was as good as everyone said it was.

Yeah, because eldar used to be metal space pirates.

I for one, like the old (1st and 2nd ed) 40k, it had less of the lol Matt Ward ridiculousness and more of the ridiculousness that a lot of people got into 40k for.

And yes, I also like the old models (inb4 that stupid picture comparing badly painted epic scale minis to modern ones)

This thread is full of evidence that it was patently not wonderful in the RT era.

In fact, I would go so far as to say that the reason 40k's grimdarkness is so hokey is that they didn't clean off the RT-era herp'n'derp before applying grimdark.

>> No.10019295

Before 40k proper, there was 40k 'epic' scale that focused on titans and tank regiments.

I joined the hobby in the times of the 2nd edition ,i have All codices from that edition up to the recent BA codex in hardcopy, what'smore all my codices are codices are bound in dosiers with the related WD articles.
I own a copy of the rogue trader Book.
I did plenty of research in spec games related stuff have uncounted PDF-s but i haven't seen this picture.

Amongst the five editions of warhammer 40,000
the only finished and balanced one is the 2nd.ed.
That's why i'm playing that.
I have tryed all edeitions since, but i tend to return to the old ways. The new editions are much simpler though. But shittier too.
I'd say, when this game was created by hobbysts for hobbysts the minis were shitty and the game was good, now when this game is brought to us by merciless businessmen the game is shitty and the minis ar more and more awesome. Art too has evolved greatly.
But ewery edition has it's own feeling and each can be liked or not.

Armies of the Imperium
Orc & Squat Warlords
Epic 40000
