16th June 8th Release Party

Well everybody get your wallets ready. Looks like a leak on reddit/Facebook confirms 8th release weekend is midnight on the 16th of June. That should be a fun club day. I for one will be happy to start learning the new ruleset right away. I'm excited!

Yep! I'm with ya. Got the

Yep! I'm with ya. Got the announcement email today. Some cool new toys are being released too.

Im digging the fact i have

Im digging the fact i have both factions in this box set, though because its so character heavy, i most likely wont be buying more than one boxset. Still not sure if i will actually play one of those factions or stick with craftworld windsor. Eldar in this edition were starting to get real old though, maybe just warp spiders and scat bikes got old, will be nice to possible use all the units again.

im contemplating a box set,

im contemplating a box set, but I don't really dig the deathguard. If anyone wants to split on a box 60/40 and keep the deathgaurd models, let me know.

I just like the fact the

Based on what the codex looks like. This game is gonna be completely different..

i think part of it (many wounds) is to help differentiate between different types of guns. For example in the 7th something like a scatter lazy was amazing because i could destroy both infantry and anything AV 12 or less pretty easily, now with all these multiple wounds, scat bikes will be not efficient at all vs vehicles but something like a D6 wound lascannon or meltagun will clearly be the choice to take down something with 10 or more wounds.

I dont like how D cannons are now "only" d6 wounds, and only 1 strength higher than a lascannon. Than i look in the book and see my fire prism's gun can be strength 12, insane.

I am not ready for the amount

I am not ready for the amount of wounds im going to have to keep track of...

It's not an issue in AOS

Once a model in a unit is wounded you have to allocate to it. Its not that bad unless your opponent is really not focusing down your vehicles.
