your mind

The purpose of this thread is to take a survey about plans to purchase the new edition that was announced on May 23rd.

Then, I would like to post a follow-up poll after 3 months or so and see who actually did purchase this new edition.

I think that it will be interesting to see if anyone changes plans, and also I hope to see in comments for instance how many people may come in and buy into this edition while having avoided prior editions, and why.

For me, the aesthetic, the narrative supporting an interest in the Necron faction, the allusions to perhaps some positive changes to actual game rules all contribute to a "Yes - I plan to purchase!" vote.

No. It'll depend on whether the rules are any better or not. I'll probably look in a few weeks in and decide whether to give it a go or stick where I am now.

The narrative stuff seems very newcron heavy so I'm out on that front and I don't trust GW to successfully make the rules better.

It depends on my opponents.
If the entire ruleset is free, there''s no real reason not to.
If the missions and such are in the paid-for rulebook, only one of us has to buy it.

I expect we will, but it depends...

I normaly don't like such claims, but I am 100% sure that no models in the upcomming starter set have stuff for GK. So buying it would be foolish.

Right behind you.

Your poll is misleading.

I have no plans to buy the box. I do want the book.

Good point. I'd missed the word 'box' in the poll, that wasn't in the title.

The (current) lack of flayed ones continues to hinder my on again/off again dream of building the Bone Kingdom of Drazak - but yeah, new Necrons certainly tempt a purchase.

Could also paint some Primaris yellow.

Depends on lots of things really.

Will depends a lot on the rules, and what they do with my army in the future.

From the sounds maybe they have changed up internally so maybe they will try and fix the mess they have.
But i still feel its probably held back a lot by a lot of 8th choices they cannot change without New Codex or Huge Updates.

I would be fine with, but i can understand why people would not be. But eh, Not that excited as a whole.

I suspect I’ll pick up the box. Whatever it contains. No interest in Necrons, but generally the starters are a solid value even if you just want half. And call me old fashioned, but I like a hard copy of the rules.

Now if the marine half looks like hot garbage, I might pass and just grab the rulebook separate. But looking at the previews and the leaks, I doubt that I’ll be unhappy with what I get.

Well, as usual they announced tanks can shoot in combat, and made vague information about what benefits close combat, so its probably gonna be an even more shootier edition than last. So i dont expect to pay a dime for their lackluster rules.

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.

I voted yes, but I suspect I won’t be buying it immediately on release, and only if the minis appeal to me.

Book yes. Starter maybe. I have no interest in sisters at all so if the box is part marine part sisters against necrons then no. If it’s marines vs necrons then yes.

Yes. There's not playing. You could go full crazy and make a video of yourself burning your army if you want but that's somewhat extreme.

There really should be a option for "undecided" or "wait and see". I hated 7th. It was a special kind of bad that basically killed the game in my area. Killed it DEAD. Most of us quit fairly early on in that edition. 8th brought most of us back. Particularly with the promise of "there will be no 9th edition - this will be a living rule set that we want to last for a very long time". So now I'm looking at "9th edition" and my first instinct is to tell GW to go feth themselves.

We shall see I suppose.

Edit: I just googled ablutions and apparently it does not including dropping a duece. I should have looked it up early sorry for any confusion. - Baldsmug

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

Might be the new normal.

At least it’s not 6th’s 2 years. That left a scar.

I don't play Necrons or loyalist Marines so I'm not interested in the box, but I got Necron and Space Marine players in my gaming group that will get it so we have a new rulebook. It also sounds like it will mostly just be an update to 8th, which is okay for me.

I will say the Thread title and the pole question being different is a bit of a bait and switch which probably means the results are meaningless.

The box will have no armies I'm interested in and the core rules will be free, so no, I wont be buying anything.

No, I'll wait for the inevitable FAQ needed because they accidentally say models can't move in the movement phase instead of can move.

2, 2, 3. Aos was 1 or 2 years. Gw does fast edition changes. 10th won't be that far away either

These are the things that would have to be done for me to consider returning to 40k... all of which are things that I know will never happen:

1) Removal of magic the gathering style list building wombo combo as the center piece of the game.

2) Remove CP farming from the game.

3) Remove true line of sight from the game.

4) Add cover rules that matter. The ability to take out my entire squad because you can see one guy's forearm is a hard no for me.

5) Add rules to make terrain significantly impact battles.

6) Make it so all armies are viable and not just a handful that get rotated every year forcing me to buy new armies regularly. Thats about as pay to win as it gets.

Do those things and I'd consider playing again.
