40K RUMORS: 6th Edition First Murmors – It has Begun!

Jun 20 2011

Note the date folks, we have officially entered the rumor event horizon for Warhammer 40000 6th edition.  Fasten your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen, heavy chop ahead…

via the Lounge and BoK

Some of the biggies in there (go read them all):

– similar ballistic to hit chart as wound chart: compare BS to target’s speed and unit type. BS 3 hits moving infantry on 4+, but lightning fast jetbikes on 6+ and stationary tank on 2+… HUGE
~Looks like someone has been playing Flames of War…

– flyer rules are incorporated in the main rules
~That “summer of flyers” is starting to make more sense now…

– some weapon types are specialized in taking out specific unit types and are incredible good at doing this (sniper vs. infantry without armour), but on the other hand ordnance vs flyer isn’t going to do much

-no more random game length
-no roll for first turn


~Ok, so take these with big, BIG grains of salt.  TastyTaste from BoK says that there is an equal mix of wishlisting and accurate stuff in this first rumor dump.  Have fun folks.  Let fly the dogs of (rumor) war…
