With the 6th edition of Warhammer 40K on the horizon (most likely next summer, followed by a new starter set in September, in time for Games Day 2012) I haven’t been able to stop myself wondering what changes I would make to the game.
We have it on good authority that there are a number of Games Workshop’s finest who enjoy Beasts of War… in fact… you may be one and you may be reading this now!
Which is why we are taking the opportunity to discuss changes you the beasts of war community would make to the next edition of Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition.
What we’ve heard so far (all unconfirmed) is that they are going to take 40K in the direction of Warhammer 8th Ed, and basically make a slightly less competitive game, almost all the sources we’ve spoke to have said that GW is not very taken with the tournament/competitive style and believes that its detracting from the fun of the game (and it is a game after all!).
We’ve been told to expect a pretty detailed overhaul of rules for buildings etc too. And that its possible that a ‘one book to rule them all’ could replace apocalypse and other supplements.
But hey, this is not about what we have heard, this is about what you think!!!
If you have thoughts on the direction Warhammer 6th editon should take, then this is your chance to get your message out there.
So join the discussion and let’s see if we can make a difference, each of the BoW crew will be adding their thoughts and ideas below as well so get stuck in!
