DAMMIT STEG YOU BEAT ME TO IT!!!!! AHHHH! I just saw the trailer on youtube and it was so awesome!

I was hoping it would go back to the older editions type of play but I understand this is more "new user friendly."

Thereís been one thing weíve been asked for more than anything else in the last three years (aside from the Lion riding a Thunderhawk): ďCan my digital codex come bundled with my print version?Ē Well, Noble Hobbyist, yes. Yes it can. Whenever you buy a 9th edition codex, youíll get the digital rules for that codex in the app for free.

from that community link..

Whoa!!

I'm very interested in all this. Seems like some great new updates and idea. I REALLY like the codex thing.

Don't get to hyped. Its a long running joke from before even Guillieman was released. Someone made a one line joke that the Lion would come back riding a plastic Thunderhawk, and since then they've inserted it everywhere.

8th was the best edition I ever played of either 40k or WFB. Hyped.

Now I realize that Mids and Padre claimed I was using CGI to show them the infamous mounted crossbows (I blame it on their eyesight waning at this stage of life, like mine), but there's no way I conjured up a whole game with Midaski in front of Artoban, Padre, and 023 without multiple folks talking about such a great and momentous occasion at much length.  Padre was even wearing glasses used from the 17th century, and Padre even got out his flea scope from the same error. Nothing, no game, nada ... but ... maybe someday.  We were all creating and painting though. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

I don't know ... those new Necrons are looking suspiciously like advanced Ossiarch Bonedudes. :icon_mrgreen:

And the Judicar ... his shoulder plate, sheesh, it looks suspiciously like a Stromrcrud trooper.  See, I new the Stormcrud dudes were really Chaos incarnate, not Sigmar's chosen.  And looks at this ... Stormcrud troopers, Judicars, hmmm ... Stormcrud Justicators!  All the Judicar needs now is a missile weapon, like maybe a lightning bow, or some such. :icon_rolleyes:

Oh, so is 40K turning to big models?  Don't tell me I have to have them to play.

Eh, not particularly. Big monsters and vehicles are certainly powerful but you can do without them. My guard army does pretty good and I only use one tank in it. Its very much you get what you pay for points wise. Big giant primarch is going to be powerful, but also a giant easy to shot target.

In fact right now some of the most powerful units are individual captains with jump packs because they can quickly move around the board and smash things.

The gravis armour the Judicar wears used the same size shoulderplates Aggressors wear, which are Terminator ones. If anything they look less ridiculous than the old models which were way out of proportion.

I am not a big fan of primaris marines, but I am liking the new range of sisters. I am a little sad that GW is retiring the Necron green rods, which was always iconic for them since their models were first introduced. I am sure there will be 3rd party bits people can get, but just feels like an end of an era you know?
