Games Workshop dive into more details about the upcoming Warhammer 40,000 App which is coming out to support the release of the new edition. Do you reckon you'll be subscribing to this?

As it stands, the free options from the App allow you to access the Core Rules for the game (already available in PDF form). Plus, any Codex that you pick up from the new 9th Edition of the game will come with a way for you to access it through the app as well using My Warhammer.

When you subscribe to the app (for £3.99 a month) you'll get access to a few more bits. In addition to building on the Codex and Core Rules options you also get a big reference of rules, a way to build your armies and all of the rules from 8th Edition Codexes until they get updated.

So, to recap. You'll be able to access the Core Rules for free and any Codexes you own physically through the use of a code. If you subscribe, you'll be able to make and verify army lists and construct them for use in your games plus access the Codexes from 8th Edition until they get updated. Once they are updated, you'll have to use the codes from new Codexes as per normal in order to access their new rules.

I'm sure folks have some thoughts on this and it would be neat to hear what you have to say in the comments below. I can see the reasoning behind the subscription myself as it should hopefully mean Games Workshop are pushed to maintain and tweak it as time goes on.

Will you be using this or sticking to writing down your lists on a piece of paper?
