40K 7th Edition Early Rumblings – Rules Percentages

Apr 30 2014

Following up on this week’s report of GW ramping up for 7th Edition in May, here’s the latest batch of rules morsels of what we will see:

Overall, we are NOT looking at a massive overhaul to the game.  Look for a lot of fine tuning, and massaging of the more broken parts of the current 6th Edition to integrate the later rulebooks and clean things up.

First up – Percentage FOC limits (like in Warhammer Fantasy):

40%+ Troops

10%-30% HQ (single character HQ Warlords can break this limit)

<20% Elite

<25% Fast

<25% Heavy

<25% Lords of War

<20% Fortifications…can take multiple fortifications

<25% Allies, Secondary Detachments, or Allied Army Formations

<50% Primary Army Formations

+++We consider this set average reliability+++

Hmmm, so who who you think are the winners and losers with these changes:

We are still very early in this rumor cycle, more as we get it.  Expect the drip-drip-drip to accelerate in the next couple of weeks.
