Between the sacred silence and sleep.

The poll is asking about the box set, but the intent seems to be 9th edition as a whole.

I have no interest in the box, but will buy anything 9th edition related that I need for my Drukhari.

Going to hold fire on this edition until the rules drop. Need to know if it's something that will lure the local players back to the game or if I should get back to work on my 5e re-write.

From the video - maximum damage artillery, units deploying from any table edge, strafing runs, more command points and more stacking bonuses... has me worried.

I stopped playing 8th a while ago, and I don't see 9th suddenly changing my mind. However I hated 3rd/4th and thought I'd never play 40K again until 8th came out (and was good, for a short time). So, stranger things have happened.

If that’s the marine half of the new starter, I can’t hit the “Buy NOW!” button fast enough.

I never believed that 8th would be the last, but 3 years is pretty short.


I didn't believe it either, but I figured what they would do is collect up all the FAQs at a certain, regular point in time (say - every 18 months), and release a updated battle primer or something like that. Because THAT is a "living rule system". Patching your BS mistakes several times a year and then ending the edition is just business as usual. We were promised this would not be business as usual.

My fault really. I knew the stove was hot. I touched it anyway. No sense in complaining about my burns now.

Add an option for don't know enough yet.

No one really has enough information to make an informed decision. No sense in asking a yes / no question.

The 9 Things trailer had things I liked and didn't like. But I don't know enough to even think about it yet.


Agree, although with what we do know based on that teaser, it's probably safe to say that a lot of games will be over even quicker now, unless the background system has had a major rewrite - which it can't have had since they said the 8th ed codexes will be compatible ...

But yeah, I'm still in the "wait and see" mode. If the books truly are compatible and 9th is a good edition, I'll buy in. Probably...

I'm under, "Wait and see." if it looks like things have actually improved (beyond the Usual Suspects shrieking about how it's the bestist game ever and GW literally can't produce anything but perfection) then I might go ahead and pick it up in the future.

I will most likely buy the starter barring that it will cost gazillion dollars or something. If it has Space Marines and Necrons it will contain something for two factions I collect, and the rulebook will be a welcome addition.

Otherwise I am generally very excited about 9th edition. I love when things are shaken up a bit and with the rule changes they hinted at in the online reveal I am looking forward to the new rules.

Also, if the app is going to be like the Azyr App for AoS, but better, I am going to have a lot of fun in the near future.

I'm really looking forward to either of these two things:

Either A: 9th ed goes back to needing a rulebook, codex, and FAQ

Or B: 8th has finally slowed to halted with its constant rules updates meaning I can game perfectly fine with the codex, PA, CA, and final FAQs for the edition with out having to worry about a new rulesbook popping up or an FAQ changing things every 2 weeks.

If both those pics are combined into one box, I think it would be a packed box, but doable. The question is the price point. You want to keep the starter set at least vaguely affordable.

We can dream of mono-faction starters. Basically a megaforce with rules. But GW has not really done that in the past.

The thing is, even if they charge $200+ for the box, compared to buying everything separate, it’s still a bargain. Even if you only want one half. Although that mostly just speaks poorly of GW’s pricing.

Not to drag this off topic.

Nah. Would rather just use my 40k stuff to play model agnostic sci-fi games. Far cheaper, and often better written.

might be useful to look at what they've teased by now.

1-5 are addressed. 6 is nothing they can fix for you, metachasing happens even for minor gains. All they can do is tighten the balance up, but it's not possible to create a perfectly balanced 40k.

* when I say "addressed", I mean that they claim that 9th addresses these issues. We'll have to wait for the actual changes, obviously.

I'll be picking up the starter box. The new units will be nice additions to my existing Primaris army.

I'm not sure if I'll sell the Necrons or do them up as a mini-force for antagonists when running 40K RPGs.

Almost certainly. My son's just started a Necron army, so we're at least 50% covered by the starter box - I think Necrons being in it is a given at this point. I'm hoping it's Sisters against Necrons. I'll jump at that. SMs are less appealing to me, if my youngest son doesn't fancy them I'll consider selling them on....

Not a chance right now. I’m not enabling GW by buying stuff after their latest price gouging. Plus neither army interests me...

Besides, fool me once with 8th. Got roughly a dozen or so games of that in as people are far too flaky. They’re all talk and bluster. They say they’ll buy into the new edition then they all dry up quicker than a puddle in the Sahara. 40k, GW’s premier game made by the premier wargaming company out there and there is naff all people to play against here. I won’t be fooled again into wasting money.

The box? I doubt it'll contain anything model-wise I need/want, and I don't have anyone on the Christmas list that this'd apply to. So most likely not.
Even if it has some way cool exclusive figure in it, picking that single piece up eventually on Ebay will still be the cheaper route.

Now had you asked about the BRB by itself....

looking at the pictures the space marine side of the box looks to contain:

1 squad of assault intercessors (likely a troop choice)
1 Bike Squad (fast attack, almost certainly)
1 powersword and stormshield unit (these are elites and are almost certainly a vetern unit, possiably generic Honor guard?)
1 Captain, 1 Chaplain an ancient and... possiablt a Lt.
and 1 unit of what looks like Gravis with Meltas


I'll be buying it, heck, depending on the price I might buy 2. 1 for my marines 1 for my space wolves.

No plans on purchasing when it is released. I might consider it if I feel that the desire to be around the group that I'll build another 40K army, if one of the armies are one I want to play, and my budget can support it again. Odds are about equal that I'll just buy the other half of someone's at that point. We have a few days a year in the market where a shop will open up the play space for selling old stuff.

Yeah, maybe I should have been more specific.

That said, I had zero interest in ever owning Necrons, and less in restartes weenies.
But, with the rules as promised - unless GW screws the pooch on this after the details come out - now I do.
So, the box will be a must for me. If these changes weren't forthcoming, I would be moving on.

Yes, because it's a new edition and I generally feel obligated to buy a copy to review all the rules changes for myself.

Yeah, this is where I am on the cron side too.
Might see about trading them, but they paint up soooo fast.
Why not keep them in the box for a mauseleum crusade run with the new crusde rules using the old sigmarite mauseleum stuff and the new terrain rules, small points... halloween? looking forward to the chance.

Won't be buying either. They already said that current codexes will still be valid. So, elite units still won't feel elite and horde units, despite this buff to blast weapons will probably still be top dog. So, why bother getting the new edition at all?

Assuming the price is decent, probably. I play marines and necrons, so it's basically a big box of new models for me. That could change if some of them are garbage, or there is some soul wars style fractional unit strength.

Not touching this edition unless they do a major overhaul of the core game system to not be pants. 8th is such a fundamentally lacking and flawed foundation for a game and it seems extremely unlikely that GW has the skill to fix this bare bones mess of a core ruleset. They need to take 8th behind the proverbial shed with a melta gun put it down full stop and create a new proper core game system with a solid foundation to support deeper gameplay. 8th is rife with literal 1 up power creep, stack all the buffs, hero hammer nightmare of abusing the d6 system until it bursts.

Ill keep an eye on how 9th pans out but if they chain themselves to 8th's design then I have zero hope for anything other than more of the same and the continuation of power creep due to limit design and gameplay space. I don't think GW has ever learned the right lessons from their mistakes and they will continue to fail into success due to the strength of 40k's IP.

Hoo boy.

5th ed Necron redesign got me on a buying frenzy back in the day. I like the look of the new Necrons that are coming, but I refuse to replace my new Codexes.

There will be free rules, so I'll take a look at them. I have no intention of buying the BRB or any codex, but I may grab some models, but not the starter set.
