It’s great to see the blogs lighting up with the release of 6th edition. Everyone is discussing rules implications, new strategies and tactics, everything and it’s awesome. For a while things were stagnant with 5th edition, it had lived its life and worthwhile topics were hard to come by.
I’m still reading the rules and absorbing everything. I’ve already read through the rules once completely and am now on my second pass through. This Wednesday I’ll finally get in a game and I can’t wait. I haven’t been this excited about 40K in a long time and I’ve always loved the game. So much has changed that until I get in a handful of games I don’t feel completely comfortable discussing 6th edition as it would be full of assumptions and what-ifs.
For the moment I’m also holding off on figuring out what direction my armies will take. I have ideas but again, until I see it played out on the table I can’t be sure of anything. I’m a patient person and I want to make sure that any changes I devise are worthwhile. My pockets are not infinitely deep and so I suspect a fair amount of reasonable proxies in the foreseeable future to avoid regretful purchases.
I do have a lot of catching up to do on reading my fellow bloggers’ articles as well. I was away on vacation the past five days and with the explosion of the blogosphere on 6th edition, it’s going to take a while to get back up to speed. I look forward to it though. There’s always some great insightful things to be learned and I’m absorbing it all.
