I've always had this fear of change with my hobby. I been a Games Workshop hobbiest for about 25 years now and every time an edition ends and a new one begins I move away from gaming for awhile. I still build and paint but lose interest in the play part. I fall behind and become distant to friends I share the game with. NOT THIS YEAR, even with the change bigger then any other edition (minus perhaps Fantasy to Sigmar) I'll be active. Actually I have already started collecting my new army even before any list choices can be 100% hammered out.
Yep I am shevling the white Scars and am doing the worst possible list to be unique with. Possibly the most played chapter as well. My plans are for a Girlyman led list with more of an elite feel. I figure with a new edition change I'll also move away from my MSU style and do a more elite thing. Low model count and poor planning should make for an exciting year for me. With this new style of list and play I'll be able to hone my skills and enjoy a different style of play with a totally different game. With this lower model count I am actually excited to spend more time per model in the studio and perhaps get an army painted to the highest standard I've ever done. I'll concentrate mainly on forgeworld models for the look. Mark 3 basically but with all the bells and whistles. None Metal Metallic ...sure why not do a whole army in it!
This edition with it's change wont scare me away and it shouldn't do so to anyone else. It's a perfect chance to start adding to your collection!
Now lets rid the world of unpainted models and roll some dice,
