We’re getting a whole bunch of rumours about the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 at the moment as well as some sneaky peeks inside the rulebook which you can check out in our forums. On top of that Bell of Lost Souls also picked up what look to be the details on how the rulebook is going to be presented. Not one book but three…
Here’s the thinking at the moment…
This Edition is to be presented in an new format reminiscent of the old rules with three hardcover books in a slipcover. It should come in at around 450 pages in total.
The Rulebook: 200 pages, Only rules.
The Grimdark: 128 pages – Fluff and history of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
The Hobby: 114 pages – Full miniatures and hobby book. All splash pics, and intro to the hobby stuff.
…does this sounds like something you’d be interested in picking up and does the new format suit gamers better? It certainly stops you from having to lug around a massive tombstone everywhere and weighing down one end of the board.
Something to think on!
