many hate it, but the 40k
needs to do an AoS
simpler rules = more fun!
when you need to drag a rulebook that is bigger then ikea cataloge, something is fundamently wrong!
I strongly disagree, the rules are fine and AOS
is garbage. 40k
is not complicated, its only issue is that there are some armies that are overpowered. Drop grav, D weapons and decurions, decrease the efficiency of some psychic phases (for example: you can never have more than 10+1d6 dice for casting psychic powers, regardless of the number of psykers involved), increase the cost of some big tau shooty robots and the game would be way better. In general if you play not competitively at any cost but organize balanced games with friends then 40k
is still awesome.
And make the rules free, with an optional printed edition like with AoS
. That will make it easer to have multiple armies.
