What are somethings you guys like about 8th?
« on: January 20, 2018, 07:02:14 PM »
Thinking of trying to maybe play a little more of 8th edition. I haven't played a lot of the new rules and wondering what you guys think of it as a whole.

I like that the game plays faster, units move quicker, more shots in general per unit. Speeds things up in a good way. I do think in balance games should be a bit smaller in size/points.

Iím so so on vehicles now being like everything else. I like how monsterous creatures and some multiwound models work.

I like how GW has been updating and supporting armies.

Considering 8th is a break from previous rules edition I think itís very well done so far- 9th edition will be the full refinement of 8th.

Everything except terrain rules which need a real overhaul to be worthwhile.

Yeah, it seems Terrain really doesn't seem to do much unless it fully blocks line of sight or you can cram a whole unit into the cover piece.

Well I didn't get the game I planned for but I still got a game in, unfamiliarity with the rules is what cost me the game. As well as a bunch of missed melta shots but that's how the dice go sometimes.

I like the fact that vehicles can move and fire way better than before

Vehicles are more life like now, more dynamic.

I'm still 50/50 on wounds vs. hull points.

I think hull points made more sense, but wounds has sped the game up for sure.

Not a fan of a house rule that the store has now that weapons don't count for line of sight. But I just won't play in any store tournaments. Cc

I love split fire on every unit and every tank
