6th Edition redesign from the ground floor to incorperate the good design elements from War of the Rings. Place a heavy emphasis on keeping the rules balanced at high and low points levels. Include Necromunda/Mordheim/Kill Team level detail but introduce "Horde" Mechanics from FFG's Deathwatch to deal with large units. Refine and simplify rules to provide clarity. The game should be easier to learn and harder to master.

Introduce 6th Edition as one giant tome featuring one list for each race that can purchase their army build and army legacy as army list upgrades. Kind of like now with SCs but instead of buying Vulkan you buy "Salamanders Gene Seed" for +X points.

In addition to purchasing your army build (seige, scouting party etc) and army legacy (Space Marine Chapter, Ork Clan, Eldar Craftworld etc) you would then purchase a Primary, Secondary and Tertiary mission such as "assassinate Enemy HQ" or "protect drop zone until reinforcements arrive" from a list of about 20 or so that everyone has access to, This way the battles two armies fight against each other make sense thematically right off the bat.

1. A fully funded 40k Battlefront styled game

2. Instead of faction only based codexes every year, GW would make one big codex-codex with rules and fluff for all factions every year.

3. Cheaper models, available in pre-built and pre-painted forms, allowing people not so keen on painting and assembling to get into 40k easily by picking those choices.

On top of that, while books will not be mixed, encourage players to use multiple legal (1 HQ, 2 Troops) armies in one game. Like doubles tournaments now but without the need for a second player. This sort of happens now, but I'd like to see it actually officially encouraged so that I'll start seeing more "1,000 points of traitor guard and 500 points of daemons" style armies without resorting to giant apocalypse battles that take all day.

I'd also really like if the core rules, like Lord of the Rings, placed a heavier emphasis on warband sized games. Mordheim/Necromunda/Gorkamorka battles could be easily reintroduced with playtested and refined rules in 6th Edition 40k. Give 40k a much more squad based, tactical feel. Then you can choose to scale up and challenge yourself with larger strategies.

As to the master army list in the core book, I'd like to see a simple purchasing system where basically every species or "sufficiently unique thing" gets a unit entry and can purchase any option available to the race including certain parts of a master skill list that they have access to at varying costs. Vehicles would get one of these unit entries too. Basically the Vehicle Design Rules all over again.

Except this would all work because in this magical fairy land where GW actually playtests the shit out of their stuff and the game is well balanced on the points system alone.

And if it's well balanced on just points you can easily have campaigns too where xp directly convert into points allowing your army to grow and purchase new skills and equipment.

Come on GW it would be easier for you, you'd still get a good amount of people buying it and you'd render piracy irrelivant. Plus you could actually correct unforseen flaws in your game as they occur instead of waiting an edition to fix them.

Seriously though. Tournament level playtesting of a game marketed and thought of as a small warband game but that is designed to scale up in points really well. Like Mordheim meets Lord of the Rings but with vehicles. That is what I want out of my 40k.

Your sororitas as you know them since 3rd already shit all over the plot. They were originally explicitly said not to be under the Inquisition's command. As for the funny stuff, like, assassins, their original fluff actually made sense, since they were not overspecialised for asspie 13 yr old. Also, Grey Knights were not so few, and the Ordo Malleus was a meta-Ordo that could control all others. No stupid division between ordos that doesn't mean shit. Same stuff for the deathwatch: EVERY goddamn marine is already supposed to now how to kill a xeno, and to have the best equipment and training possible to achieve this; the Inquisition codices were all categorizan and specializan against common but in favor of assburgers who cannot appreciate things without labelling them.

Marine codexes are cut & paste jobs that take no effort and pay for all the other codex releases.

They couldn't do it in a single codex. But they could easily pull off two or three (maybe based on the 4th edition divergences - Codex/Minor Divergence chapters in one volume, Notable/Significant Divergence in the other. And then you could have the old rules from Index Astartes for Salamanders, Iron hands, etc. plus designing your own chapter).

>>Space Marines are iconic, they're the face of 40k, they sell best, they appeal to the target audience (preteens buying on their parents' paychecks), etc.
Then how about making the rest of the races/factions NOT SUCK.

How about making them appeal to the audience as well?
How about diversifying the target audience a bit?
How about making the whole image of 40k more colorful than showing only Space Marines EVERYWHERE!
How about alleviating other races from the collective status of being Xeno scum to a point where people know at least their names.
How about trying something more resource intensive and risky than milking the already dried out cow?

Not be an douche here I only learned marketing for one semester and even I know that if the company never changes/refreshes its image will quickly loose the interest of the consumers.

Pumping out updated versions of the same Space Marine codexes and making more Space Marine codexes only trashes the iconic image of Space Marines. Wouldn't it help the lore a bit better if the Imperium had more enemies than EVEN more of the same method for casually steamrolling the same incompetent enemies? Will we reach to the point when Space Marine chapters actualyl have to get together and stand in a queue to smite the enemy?

While in the main promor text says
>>Humanity teeters on the brink of extinction, assailed on all sides by aliens, traitors and Daemons, and only the superhuman strength of the Space Marines and the uncountable numbers of the Imperial Guard stand between the slavering alien hordes and total annihilation.

Yet the product range shows the complete opposite, humanity clearly seems to dominate and the enemies of humanity seem to be the weaker minority.

cato sicarius is rubbish in my opinion, sure hes got that fancy feel no pain rule and artifcer armour on but with a 4+ invunerable save (thought the smurfs could do better than that for one of there greatest heros!) hes rather weak in staying power. now my tactics probly differ greatly so heres my army list (you shall think me mad!!!) and another note, i have named my bigger meaner units since the opponents need to know who creamed them!

captain Finn: darnath lysander rules
points: 200

notes: eternal warrior with 3 up invunerable with 2+ armour plus a str 10 master crafted thunder hammer and 4 wounds, i'll have that!

tactical squad: 10 men, melta bomb, plasma cannon, flamer
points: 180

note: i take two squads of this configuration for tact squads as it doesn very well for me

terminators:5 men, cyclone missle launcher, 3 chain fists
points: 245

stern guard: 7 men, powerfist, melta bomb (for laughs since i had spare points!), combi-melta
points: 210

thunderfire cannon 'morvern'
points: 100

land raider 'stoorworm': cronus (BS5, ignore shaken and stunned, why can't i have two!), multi-melta, storm bolter, HK
points: 350

land raider redeemer 'corryvreaken':extra armour (cronus is a one tank wonder!), multi-melta, storm bolter, HK

>> No.13377140

right, theres my arguement against cato, look at how i have arranged my army, notice a lack of anything for him to lead. he falls down at a rabbit fart for me (used him at least 3 times, and his coup de grace is like a melta at half range, it misses all the time) so instead of join pedros i went for the founders of that chapters 1st captain (note i have my own chapter and plan on using ALL SM IC, fluff in codex says so!) who kicks serious ass. i say cato is most likely one of those weak ones who HAVE to lead a unit before there good, some leader if he can't roundhouse half an army for 200 points (something that darnath does! plus bolster defence, oh and re-roll bolter misses including storms, heavys etc., wheres that titan mega bolter XD cronus anyone!!!!!!). then again i face an ork player who spreads two 30 ork boy units across the board hiding half the squad for a cheesy 4+ cover! plus two trukks with mek and warboss with power mitten (mek with sheild thingy!) anyway enough of me falling off topic (gulity as charged on several forums ) cato to me just says fragile, handle with care hence my liking for vulkan and darnath (darnath being number one in my fav list), so to me any leader not wearing some form of REAL protections like a leader should have (pedro, chapter master, wheres the artficer armour?). my main point is i like all the characters (trust me, leadership 10 is good, but stubborn is a good sub) but most are too fragile for there job, shrike i understand but the rest are no good (except marneus). oh and has anyone noticed sicarius has gone from lowly side character on gallerys to full blown character, its thraka all over again (and wheres the lightning claws hmmm? they are what i want, not some fancy sword with a long winded paragraph just to say power weapon)

And that is without his "BLEACH" marines

Action figures?
A really cheap kids version of the game that doesn't require painting figurines and such (just solid coloured plastic) that has really easy to understand rules for kids?

Only Blood Angels should take Devestators as a rule. In Vanilla Marines, they're badly overpriced relative to the mech options though you could argue for Missile Launcher Devestators, and usually only if you are looking to flood the field in Rhino/Razor chassis; Space Wolves do that better though (being able to take cheaper minimal-strength squads, including min-strength Grey Hunters and Wolf Guard means it's easy to cram more Razorbacks in).
