I for one am celebrating heavily. My local store has been riven by wannabe competitive players who lose at all the bigger tournies so have been bringing the same internet list against all the little narrative games or casual stuff.

Not really Space Marines. Yesterdays changes are mostly aimed at fixing the over powered Iron Hands, and somewhat at other groups like Raven Guard. Space Marines as a whole are still really strong. It's just the top tier list being brought more into line.

Which is freaking fantastic. A bunch of people at my local club have jumped on the Iron Hands Meta train and proceded to just devastate everyone they faced with just about no skill needed. Literally just sit in a corner and shoot.

Also, totally unrelated, but ah Zak! I barely recognized your picture there!

This is my beard face  :biggriin: ……… that's good clarification I heard that blood angels are pretty nasty as well. I guess I never understood that part of the game play , to each is their own I guess

I found this lovely video explaining the basics on how to play 40k 8th edition:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0GrQ2DIPyc

May come in handy if you are struggling, first time playing, or trying to show someone new to the hobby.

I honestly haven't played since 3rd edition, but have watched many youtube battle reports of 4-7th eidtion (currently on a kick of watching HH battles). Watching this video, as well as some other 8th edition reviews, takes me out of my 40k comfort zone. 7th edition looks more like what I played way back when than 8th edition. In some ways it reminds me of WHFB with how armor is saves and movement works. Getting rid of templates makes games a bit faster I guess, but rolling for scatter was always fun. Not sure how I feel about it, but maybe I need to play a few games to get better acquainted with it.

I've been playing a lot of 8th and did play a lot of 7th. 8th is _very_ different. Much more streamlined and quicker. Originally it was also much easier to keep all the different rules in mind as well, but that's been changing with the usual GW need to add a billion books all with new rules. There are some things I miss from 7th. The templates are gone, and so is the front/side/back of vehicles. Both made things far more tactical. No more can a flamer wipe out two units with good positioning, nor can you ambush a vehicles rear to have an easier chance of damaging it.

That said, I found my games are nearly twice as fast now. Generally I quite like 8th, but for people who played a lot of previous editions I know it was quite a shake up.

8th isn’t perfect but I enjoy it so much more than the editions I played (5-7). If vehicles had a toughness bonus when being shot from the front and terrain had proper rules, it’d be basically perfect for me.

I've heard flamers are actually pretty boss now since they can fire with auto hits on overwatch. It happens in the video at least.

It's a bit of a trade off. In a lot of ways flamers are a lot more reliable now, and being able to roast things in overwatch is awesome and very fluffy. On the other hand you use to be able to do some clever tricks with flamers and the templates. You're hitting fewer people now, but more likely to be damaging those guys you hit.
