Incoming - 6th Edition 40k
Usually these days seeing a 40k release promotes mild dissapointment as it means it's not a warhammer fantasy release. It wasn't always so.
I played my share of 40k back in the days of 1st - 3rd edition, and I've always loved the background. Lately I've been musing over what army I would take if I did re-enter the grim darkness of he 40th millennium. A motley crew of chaos degenerates would be most tempting, as long as I could mix legionnaires with human cultists and such. I do hear something chaosy is on the horizon too. The necrons are a bit of what I like, all that space undead business. But I think a genestealer coven is still my top choice, using whatever list I could hijack.
I've picked up all the books for 40k since rogue trader, so I will be picking up the new book, minus the associated dice, tape measures and such (which you can see here). I may pick up the psychic cards, we'll see. With everything on my desk screaming for paint it would be utter madness to start a new army in a new game.
