I'm planning on getting my friends to stop here with 9th once all our codexes are released. Crusade seems fun, the 9th rule system seems better than 8th.
But until then I just want to have casual games of 8th. Thing is battlescribe (the only thing they'll ever use) doesn't have a data repository of 8th at its last update. It just got renamed to 9th and they kept going
So I'm asking how people manage playing older editions and steps I should take to make things easier to manage. Do I subscribe to battlescribe and make my own repository for our group, would it be hard or possible? Or do I just make them play 7th?
