Games Workshop put this video up on their blog yesterday.
With all the rumors floating around I think it’s easy to guess this is the rumored 7th edition for Warhammer 40K.
I’m really hoping this is the consolidation it’s rumored to be. I just can’t see Games Workshop making 7th edition a whole new rule set when 6th edition isn’t even 2-years old yet. The game desperately needs to be pulled together into something cohesive at this point. With so many add ons to Warhammer 40K right now the game just feels very fragmented. Not to mention it’s not entirely clear what’s a part of the core rules and what is optional. Clearing everything up will go a long way to helping the game.
There’s some rules clarifications that need to be made and of course some balancing. Games Workshop has the chance to streamline the game and I really hope that’s what we’re going to see on May 24th.
Update on Warhammer 40K 7th Edition
So, leaks are abound from White Dwarf showcasing alterations to the force organization chart as well as a psychic phase. I’m not liking what I’m seeing at all and this is the first time that a Warhammer 40K edition change has me considering getting out of it. I will wait for 7th edition to drop but I will not pre-order the rulebook and will instead read the rulebook that someone else buys before making a final decision.
