This weeks White Dwarf has good deal on the new edition of 40K. So much for it being just a clean up of 6th. Well, no more than 5th was a revised 4th and all. Call me a overly optimistic fanboy but I am actually really looking forward to 7th edition, starting with the throwbacks to second edition, the three book rules set and the Psychic phase.
We will have to wait and see exactly how the new psychic phase works, but it sounds solid and something that will add to the game without putting much drag on the turn structure. Daemonology sounds fun and a real boost to the fans of the ruinous powers.
The new missions set seems very dynamic and should be entertaining. The other huge change is of course, the Unbound army selection. Sounds like a lot of fun, providing you don't play with total smegheads. And even then it should be good for a laugh. Used responsibly it will allow for interesting battlegroups that exist in the fluff but cannot be made using the existing FOC. Like my all assault squad army that is coming to to a table soon, or a "proper" Ork kult of speed. Oh, the possibilities.
I want to wait until next week when I have the rules in hand before I yap about the rules tweaks.

We'll see how well he listened to our pleas
