What I’d like to get:
I’d like the rules to be brought into line with game play and fluff, rather then marketing. A.k.a get rid of the “no model, no rules” nonsense. And stop the special snowflake just to be special stuff. Every new unit doesn’t need a bespoke rifle with a wacky rule that triggers on a 6. It’s just slowing down the game and adding bloat.

Replace a lot of old finecast models with modern plastics. Not new units that do the same thing, enough of that bloat. Just new kits of old stuff that needs an update. Top on my personal wishlist is plastic aspect warriors, but many armies need this.

While finecast replacements should take priority, there is a lot of aged plastic that could use a re-cut, despite still holding up OK. With new sprue technology and how well they pack things in these days, you could consolidate kits. Dreadnoughts, Eldar grav tanks, a lot of the rhino chassis, etc. There are some other kits that havn’t aged as well that could use being replaced, like SM scouts.

What I am more likely to get (and still be happy with):
Multipart versions of the new vanguard marines. I didn’t care enough to pick up the box, as I only play the marine side, and was “meh” on half that. But suppressors with more options, a small squad of the infiltators, and maybe a trio of eliminators for flavor could find their way to the shelf. But I don’t need those HQs with crap play options (although the Lib is cool looking, but I’m not sure he’s worth clampack prices) Suppressors are something I might kitbash, as I’m not fond of the looks. Might grow on me though.

They’ve recently done a SM vs. Eldar box, which had the best chance to grab me as I play both sides, so it’s unlikely to happen again. But if they had one with new kits, I’d eat that up.

A vision for the Aeldari race.

Gahering storm was a mess from a fluff perspective, even tho there where many good ideas in there.

Now we have so many threads that don't lead anywhere, the aeldari fluff is really in a bad state. But it doesn't need much to reconciliate all of it. Unfortunately the new Ynnari Index showed, that GW doesn't know what to do with the Aeldari race.

Furthermore this fluff problem bleeds into the models and rules. There is so much potential with the Ynnari. But... nothing. What about the old Aspects? ... nothing. What about Commoragh just having a massive shake-up? ... nothing. What about the Harlequins - Cegorach - Ynnead relationship? ... nothing.

So GW: What is the path forward for the Aeldari?
Show us that you have a vision where to go from the now. Story, codex, model range...
We don't need the full thing, just hints and tidbits would be enough.

I'd like to see <Traitor Guard> regiment, similar to as <Brood Brothers> are.

Something like:
Traitor Guard

In the Codex: Astra Militarum, replace all IMPERIUM and ASTRA MILITARUM tags with CHAOS and TRAITOR GUARD tags. You cannot include any named characters blah blah blah...


You get the idea.

Bringing a concept that was in the 2nd edition Chaos Codex and updated in the "Eye of Terror" campaign book back to life. Some groundwork has been done with the BSF traitor guard already. Add a proper cultists kit, some truly chaotic abominations (somewhere between actual Chaos Spawns and "normal" mutants), some more chaotic upgrades to imperial vehicles, and a new unit or two.

Although I approve looting of all kinds....

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like soup. Now you put soup in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put soup into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now soup can flow or it can crash. Be soup, my friend.

Faction themed terrain that doesn't have special rules attached to it. Upgrade kits with weapons/wargear for most factions. Conversion bits for OOP models with rules. (Sonic Dreadnought, various IG factions, FW Hammerhead variants etc) Terrain Conversion kits like the new Hobbit-hole, but for 40k. An official army builder that uses points and is friendlier to new players than battlescribe.

Other posters have covered a lot of the stuff I'd like to see in terms miniatures for Eldar, DE, Inquisition, IG infantry etc. A couple of things I'd add to that list would be Flayed Ones, C'tan shards, and updated GK kits (in a similar manner to the new CSM). Faction upgrade sprues should also be more of a thing/

In terms of the rules, GW really needs to do a rewrite of the core rules to tighten them up -- a revision that's clear and concise. A reference sheet without the flavour text would be swell. It'd be great if the 40k rules team followed the AoS team in having consistent use of language around functionally identical rules across different codexes. Hopefully we also start seeing some 2.0 codexes for factions that need to consolidate new units (daemons, space marines) or ones that need a fundamental rethink (GK! ).

Edit: Almost forgot to add -- better terrain rules and some proper LoS blocking terrain.

1. A loyalist power armored force that isn't a complete joke.
2. Chaos Slaanesh and/or Khorne codexes. I don't play them, but I wanna SEE them.
3. Look, I KNOW there will be more Primaris releases. Please make some of them both awesome looking AND good in terms of gameplay. All the current units either look mediocre and are good in game (Intercessors), or look awesome and suck in game(Almost everything else?). I won't buy something just because it looks cool, so please make them good?
4. MAYBE new space marine bike models/characters? I feel like the current ones are the same as I was buying in the 90s.
5. New Space Maine codex would be nice.
6. Literally anything exciting for my Tyranids. I have zero hype for them at the moment.

So over the 2019-2020 year I would like:
Short term: release of the primaris and either a space marine codex 2.0 or codex primaris
Medium term: an update to the cover rules. They are too simplistic at the moment. I want more depth to the.
Long term: scrapping the IGUG system, bring back weapons skill effecting combat, make the wounding system more in depth, make vehicles feel like vehicles not higher toughness units with lots of wounds.

New Xenos models. Especially Necrons. And I don't just mean one new character and call it a day. I want to see a full release schedule over 6 months with all new units or in the case of Eldar, upgrading their current range to plastic.

I'm starting to get really, really tired of the Imperium and Chaos spank fest

I second this. Kill-team has a good system. I bet it would work with 40k too so some extent and with some changes.

Since they have been testing the AA system with killteam (and i think apocalyspe is gonna use a similar system from my understanding). We might get some (beta?) rules allowing us to ditch IGOUGO in our games. Its honestly one of the most swingy mechanics in the game and it highly favors gunline armies.

Anyway, personally i wish for mechanicum rules in 40k and for a consolidated ruleset.

Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

I'm doubting 9th Edition is coming in 2019 or 2020. Don't get me wrong, 9th Edition will come, but I doubt it'll be in the next 19 months.

I could be mistaken, but I believe 8th Edition is the most successful edition of the ruleset that GW has had in many, many years. Not only are the core rules greatly reduced to allow for ease of new players, but many, many people who haven't played in years are flocking back to the hobby and the game.

I have a feeling that GW is going to ride 8th as long as it possibly can before releasing 9th.

Its also become a bloated mess of documents, books, faq errata, and community articles thats frankly near impossible to keep up with and daunting as feth for anyone joining now.

It could use a better structured and higher quality clean slate.

I think 8th will last exactly as long as it takes for them to release enough primaris units to build a whole primaris codex. And then its done.

Realistically:

Editiin 8.5, get an updated brb out with all faqs, erratas, and beta rules

Electronic living ruleset, ideally a subscription service that grants access to all rules and codexes. Otherwise just electronic rules that get updated with point costs, faqs, etc

Traitor guard released as a dedicated kit. As mentioned above, brood brothers rules for traitor guarf

Thats pretty much it. 8th is in a good place, if gw is smart, they wont jump to 9th too soon. They need to reel in their release schedule and get what is imo the biggest problem with 40k fixed: having to bring a small library and multiple printouts to every game.
