10th is coming and rumors are that it will be a doozy of an update, possibly even a reset invalidating all codexes and campaign books.

So NOW seems a good time for our completely false and made up 10th edition rumors!

1 - Die rolls will change to an intuitive system of d8 and d12 rolls with d100 and d1000 reserved for chaos mutations.
2 - All old codexes will be invalidated. Except for Codex Witch Hunters. That one will remain legal.
3 - IGOUGO will finally die the death it should have died in the 2000s. Instead the new system, called IGO, will be streamlined so that the first turn will be decided by a die roll, after which the winning player is assumed to annihilate his foe in an alpha strike. Competitive players will praise how the games are faster and more balanced than ever before.
4 - More $100 diorama special character things, you guys like that right?
5 - Price hikes
6 - Fewer models in a box. What if like instead of 3-5 marines in a box we did like 1-2?
7 - No rules for the Inquisition.
8 - Internet-based rules. You simply buy a physical book, input the code into an app, download the FAQs and Balance Updates, check against Army Builder and Waghapedia, spend 20 minutes negotiating with your opponent, and you're ready to go.
9 - Look kid, either we can release 1-2 updated codexes a month that are filled with typos and blatantly unbalanced rules, OR we can spend the next 5 years releasing updated codexes, one or the other. Or maybe both?
10 - Squats?

Gw will face the facts, stating: "We've screwed up so many editions now that we've decided to just throw in the towel and truely become a model company. Use any of the other available rulesets to play games.".

We have reached the conclusion that the Codex model is outdated because customers are paying for too many rules they don't need. So, instead, we are now selling Dataslate Holders (binders) which can be filled with Dataslates (pieces of paper) with all the rules for a model. Of course, all stratagems, relics, psychic powers, and the like are available separately. Finally, players will be able to build their own codexes!

All rules will be replaced by stratagems. At the beginning of the game you shuffle your stratagem deck and draw 10 cards, and then the players alternate playing stratagems until someone wins. It will still be mandatory to buy all of the models and set them up on the table but they will have no effect on the actual game.

Paper codices will be replaced by Warhammer++, GW's new NFT-based digital content system. To prevent piracy of the rules each purchase will give you a unique codex with slightly different rules and before playing the game you will have to validate your NFT to prove ownership of your rules. Codices will be able to be traded on the Warhammer++ Marketplace for a nominal transfer fee.

Battle-Ready™ painting means Battle-Ready™. All GW stores and sponsored events will be equipped with a proprietary spectral analyzer tool which will determine the exact pigment contents of the paints used on your model and guarantee that it was painted with official Citadel Contrast Paints™. Any model not painted exactly according to the Battle-Ready™ formula will cause you to lose the 10 VP for painting and, in a GW store, these illegal models will be confiscated and destroyed.

Each primaris marine in the Imperium will have his own individual bolter type with its own Bespoke™ stat line. Codex: Bolters will be available on Warhammer++ to ensure that you always have the specific rules for each marine in your army.

Oh wait, that last one is probably real...

One of their light walkers carried a weapon of lethal effect. It fired a form of ultra-high velocity projectile. I saw one of our tanks after having been hit by it. There was a small hole punched in either flank - one the projectile's entry point, the other its exit. The tiny munition had passed through the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out through the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty metres from the wreck.

Bow before the Greater Good, gue'la.

10th edition will feature premiums ammo available on a per game basis for a small micro transaction. This ammo will be superior in all ways to regular ammo. Also, you need to keep track of ammo. - WG...er...GW... whatever, we're the same company now and all balancing will be based on spreadsheets.

Introduction of sub-sub factions: Now your Farsight Enclaves army can be led by Commander Farsight himself, Commander Bravestorm, O'Vesa, Commander Brightsword, Commander Sha'Vastos, Ob-Lotai 9-0, Commander Arra'kon, or Sub-Commander Torchstar.

Each of these heroes (with their own $100.00+ plastic model and one random one from FW) can no longer be played together due to balance reasons and will now have their own sub-subfaction bonuses located within physical only mini-codices launching every month. This will of course be in addition to the Farsight Enclaves subfaction book that will effect all of these armies, and the actual Tau codex itself.

Okay, that would be cool. And funny. But treat it like a cat urine mist and use smell instead of color. Which ever models hit by the spray smell the worst, those are the ones that are hit.

Codex books remain a thing as before, but points are updated monthly instead of twice a year now.

Hex bases are reintroduced, 'cause folks like their oldschool, amirite? This will go with mandatory base sizes for all models, and you are no longer allowed to use any illegal bases when playing in stores or in tournaments. Base sizes might be part of balance updates every now and then.

Units will only be sold in their "base configuration", any special or heavy wepaons, as well character upgrades are sold in blind boxes.

Codex books will only contain the rules for those "base configuration" units, with the other rules sold in seperate supplements. Note that while this might sound okay, of course the basic units suck - upgrades are more or less mandatory.

As above, but the official base sizes change whenever you, the reader, change your bases to the previous version.

‘What Lorgar’s fanatics have not seen is that these gods are nothing compared to the power and the majesty of the Machine-God. Already, members of our growing cult are using the grace of the Omnissiah – the true Omnissiah, not Terra’s false prophet – to harness the might of the warp. Geller fields, warp missiles, void shields, all these things you are familiar with. But their underlying principles can be turned to so much more. Through novel exploitations of these technologies we will gain mastery first over the energies of the empyrean, then over the lesser entities, until finally the very gods themselves will bend the knee and recognise the supremacy of the Machine-God"

To follow the logical progression of being penalized for not painting models because of course players can't use their imagination. All GW bases will now be completely clear so that you can see the proper terrain beneath the models feet. No longer will players have to suffer models based on city-style bases running through a forest and breaking their immersion. This will of course be reflected in game, if you have any model that is on a base which is not completely clear, you lose 10VP. You will of course have to pay a premium for new bases for you old models.

We will have a new breed of Marines called the Neomaris, with T10, W10 and Sv+1/++1/+++1

Also their guns will ignore saves and fnp, will automatically hit and wound and will have infinite range and ignore BLOS.

And each time one Neomaris makes a melee attack, their owner gets to punch their opponent in the face.

1. all the non primaris marine stuff goes send to legends
2. primaris get a new intercessor box. One with a lastalon, multimelta, pyroblaster and a hellblaster as "special" weapon
3. primaris Lt/Cpt with a jump pack option.

10th edition is where GW finally admit, they can't write good rules. So the rules will be scrapped and the game will now be played however anyone wants.

Want to smash your models together while making noises, can do!
Want a deeply elaborate set of rules, sure (just as long as you make them yourself)

Just remember, Marines always win... oh and if a model is killed/destroyed in however you game, it need to be replaced with a new model as it is now dead and can not be used again.

Gaming for everyone!

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

42- GW's popular line of 25mm infantry bases, 28mm, 30mm and 32mm will be enhanced with 26mm, 31mm and 33mm bases.

Units not on the correct base at deployment will be automatically destroyed.

GW will sell laser calipers so you can verify your opponent's armt is legal.

Awesome thread Kyoto but OMG #7 ... killing me harshly!!


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I expect that most aged units will be retired from so called matched or competitive play, in order that GW befudnicks can simplify enough to get their weasely heads around so called balance. So, unit X has a, and older unit X with d will be retired.

Seconding the need for 41mm and yes, 63.5mm base sizes.

Introducing new terrain mechanics whereby all terrain is purely aesthetic and either blocks all los or is transparent, because, yeah, weasely brains.

Finally, units not correctly based, e.g. on a 63.5, or outfitted per 'seasonal' requirements, will per Kyoto's post be destroyed ... physically smashed on the floor underfoot. Good for sales!!

All models are sold in individual blind boxes, unassembled without datafaxes and with glue and paint seperate for your convenience.

Stratagems are sold in booster packs, with 5 random strats per pack, with a stale peice of 1970's bubblegum. Packs are not sorted by factions.

All physical copies will be burned and rules go to the electronic war app, which unfortunately won't be ready until 11th edition.

The entire Dark Eldar line is refreshed, but unfortunately consists of only one model - Drizz't Do Urden.

It never ends well
