What do you guys think of the rumors? I see two different camps

>Percentage based FOC
>No army more than 2 books
>Sideboards

Or

>It's more like 6.5 Edition
>Only folding in Escalation and/or Stronghold Assault into the core rules.
>Included all current errata and FAQ into the core rules

>> No.31867635

>>31867510
You know, even though the first group seems to be tournament player wishlisting, I'd be keen to try it out. The only thing that bothers me is armies being limited to two books. We play at high point levels and it's common to have at least two books. Especially with Imperial players. For example my Imperial Guard are allied to Space Marines and have an Inquisitorial Detachment.

From my experience I'd add a third camp of people who now rabidly hate 40K and the direction the rules and the costs have gone etc. They only see any new edition as a new low either casualise the rules further or a cynical attempt to get money.

It's depressing because I have a nice world eaters army and so few people play it at my gaming group.

Calling it 6.5 is a stretch, it is probably just an updated rulebook including rules from escalation and whatnot. I doubt a single rule will actually change.

>Also there's rumors on the new starter set
Seems unlikely seeing how DV is still up on the website while the rulebook isn't being sold anymore.

>Blood Angels vs Orks
More likely of the two
>Imperial Guard vs Eldar
More interesting of the two

Anyone who seriously thinks we are getting massive changes like a percentage based FoC and sideboards is delusional, limiting the actual forces used eg. inquisition, allies, knights, pick one; is actually possible.

Perhaps they were, but odds are it wasn't carried over or if it was they are very minor changes. Most changes I can see are rules being cleared up, especially regarding combining books.

I recall a separate person talking about the assault rules getting charge reactions and what sounds a lot like being able to redirect charges.

I guess something like you can swap out say 25% of your forces to make a matchup better so you can put say 250 points in a side anti mech unit and anti flyer unit then pick one for the match. It's from shit like TCG

IG isn't being replaced by AM, the codex itself refers to the army as the Imperial Guard in their codex.

>> No.31868490

>>31868149
Pretty much this: >>31868239
The example being tossed out is that in a 1000 pt game, you have the option to take 750 points that's your main list and have a certain number of 250 pt sideboard lists (I can't remember if it's rumored to be limited as to how many sideboard lists you can have). After you both see each other's lists, then the person that deploys first chooses his sideboard and deploys normally. The person that goes second then chooses his sideboard after that. So he'd know everything the person going first is bringing.

Also, your final list including primary list plus your sideboard must conform to the percentage based FOC.

Even though it's probably wishlisting, this is actually one of the very few I'd like to try to see how it goes.

>> No.31869479

I have several armies. I wasn't interested in an Eldar army until I heard about the possibility of an IG/Eldar starter set. I have a large guard army. The only Eldar faction that holds my interest is Ulthwe. So I might just branch out to Eldar as allies.

What I'd like to see in such a starter set

Off the top of my head. Want to run Ravenor? I suppose you can take power armor to represent his armored chair. But he's limited to mastery level 1 and can't take a Psycannon if you run him as Ordo Xenos. Amberley Vail? She has to leave her Displacement Field at home.

Ward is seeing a popularity increase because he hasn't committed anything meaningful since some time. Who remembers Sentinels of Terra and Iyanden? Yeah.

Cruddace has done Codex:Skyblight Swarm, Space Marines and IG. All of them rather unimpressive, if mostly workable.
Kelly has done Eldars, Chaos Daemons, Codex:Heldrake and Farsight Enclaves. All of them prime example of rape.
Vetock has done Dark Angels (so okay no one cares) and Empire Tau (wtfbbq).

Power creep started to explode after the IG 5th, GK 5th and SW 5th. People mostly remember Ward because, while IG/SW 5th were rapetastic GK 5th was Nyarlathotep-level insane. And Necron 5th didn't help.

Necrons can still give it a pretty good go, but Grey Knights? They have a couple of units which are an absolute pain in the ass to play against, but outside of Henchmen spam, they're really not as powerful as they once were. Draigowing took a substantial hit when 6th edition stopped it from juggling wounds around to keep its Paladins alive.

>> No.31885309

>>31885019
Andy Chambers was in charge of 40k back then.

He left when he wasn't allowed to make changes to the game as he saw necessary. I think that was GWs biggest mistake so far in regards to 40k. Because after that everything was just a patchwork of covering up past mistakes.

No. Necrons are mostly average when not being allies to chaos for some Chaos Crescent. GK are quite dead, the only thing left of them is Coteaz, because Psyback spam is dead and Inquisition Detachments or IG allies do their thing better.

>t's almost like the power creep left them behind and kept on rolling
I think it's more that the core rules changed to stop them being abusive.

'Power creep' isn't remotely consistent, anyway. Since 6th we've had codices at all power levels.

>> No.31885354

Paladins still can but with MUCH less reliability. Also, GK deathstars aren't impressive when the most played army brings a S8 AP2 Ignore Cover Large Blast.

That was the Spiritual Liege incident. The most whined-about things are Grey Knights (Mortarion's heart, Bloodtide, mighty men with musculous magic, radical GK, whatever) and Newcrons. Let's not speak about Newcrons.

>> No.31885373

>>31885314
Which is irrelevant. Your claim was that Grey Knights and Necrons are still capable of dominating Tournaments; this is simply not true. Both books can produce a gimmicky list or two that can do well at a tournament, but almost every codex can do this. Even Tyranids, with their shambolic codex, can do this. That doesn't make them overpowered.

I didn't mind that stuff all that much because I was failing out with 40k at the time anyway due to coming with terms over how poorly GW managed it.

Newcrons got much less rage than the other things. Look back in the archives and you'll see the majority of posts were in favour of them when they came out.

Though the Oldcron fans were persistent, I guess.

I would say it was a mixed response. I for one was glad they pretty much fluff assassinated the C'tans because I really didn't like them as the root of all evil. The entire point with Chaos manifesting the way it does in the setting is that it mirrors all the evil in the galaxy.
