New Battle of Vedros Starter Set and Rules

Postby ThisCharmingDan » Mon Feb 15, 2016 3:25 pm

Has everybody seen the new rule system that GW are releasing for 40k? It appears to be 40k for kids with simplified rules. Seems like a good business decision to me and I'm in for a starter set when its released. I'm interested in hearing how actual hardcore 40k fans feel though

From the buzz online, it sounds like its a very simplified version of the rules. To a 40k newbie, thats pretty interesting as I quite often get lost in the technicalities of the 40k system. At the very least it seems to get rid of the psychic phase (maybe just because those rules don't apply to any of the mini's in this box), Maybe cover saves (which I'd prefer they kept) and all other dice modifiers. Its probably a good idea in my mind to get new players into the 40k world.
