    Apparently the rules portion is to be age of sigmarized.

    New true-scale style Marines have been sighted for the new starter box.

    I'm hyped.

    Been avoiding 40k due to the complexity and high barrier of entry... Hopefully this makes the game accessible.

    Time to research armies and see what I fancy playing in 40k!

    I'm on the opposite end of the fence, just like with AoS

    From the looks of it (by which I mean the reading of the faq), it looks like they are trying to incorporate the best elements of AoS while learning from their AoS release mistakes (they haven't abolished points or the lore/fluff/setting). It appears like AoS turned out to be a good trail run for 40K. It's also positive that they look to be making a concentrated effort to maintain and promote two way communication with the community.

    Then bring back the old setting for fantasy. "It was just a dream, Franz. Wake up."

    RIP 40k

    Hello Warhammer Age of Guilleman

    I'm super stoked. I hate 40ks current buy 4 books and flip through all of them at the same time mechanic and hope for some age of sigmarized rules

    This looks interesting. Can anyone give a rough overview of how each army plays? Might like to play it but I have no idea what the various armies do and only know a sliver of the lore.

    Google lexicanum and hit random article on the main page.

    Also look at 1D4chan for a lore accurate yet uncouth laugh fest

    Pretty much this.
    I would have started a Tau army already if it weren't so damn complex, beginner unfriendly, unbalanced, and expensive.

    I just don't want things to turn Noble bright, aka the primarchs return to bleep everything up and the imperium comes into a new golden age, etc etc

    I would, and I have at times gone through it. There's just quite a lot. Also I tend to then click on links in the text and next thing you know I have 500 tabs open. Nothing that can describe them in less than 5 lines?

    Noble bright might be a bit too much of a change.. though I would like to see a bit of a story that isn't just "and then we stopped the evil monster from eating our souls for the nth time so now we're safe for another 3 days until the next massive ork waagh, tyranid fleet or dark crusade comes along"

    I would definitely have started a tau army. They look so cool. Might have to some day. But I think I will keep my focus on the AOS.

    I´m actually looking forward to this, haven´t played 40k since I started lizardmen, so I think it´d be a nice return

    Looking forward to this. I really hope my tyranids are playable as something other than "flying FMC spam". I started my miniatures career as a nid player in 3rd and would love to get back to my roots.

    I wonder how my Necrons will fare. I haven't played in YEARS, but still curious.

    Too bad the C'tan will still be "shards".... stupid Matt Ward :punch:

    I'm honestly on the fence because I can't stand the Hand to Hand mechanic. :/
