The FAQ for 8th Edition has been released today!
Here is the Warhammer Community page announcing 8th Edition and here is the FAQ page itself.
Some thoughts from me, selected at random:
(1) The new format will follow the Age of Sigmar approach with matched play, open play, and narrative play. This seems good to me.
(2) "The rules in our current range of Warhammer 40,000 codexes aren’t compatible with the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. These books will be going off sale very soon. If you do want to pick any up, now’s the time - as all of the great hobby content and background information will be as valid as ever. "
There goes all the codexes!
(3) There will be annual "general's handbook" expansions like Age of Sigmar.
(4) No exact release date as of yet.
(5) Website: https://warhammer40000.com/
(6) Clicking on the different "factions" reveals at least the following:
Imperium => Space marines, blood angels, dark angels, space wolves, grey knights, deathwatch, astra militarum, adepta sororitas, adeptus custodies, sisters of silence, adeptus mechanicus, imperial agents, imperials knights.
Chaos => Chaos daemons, chaos space marines, death guard, thousand sons.
Xenos => Craftworlds, harlequins, dark eldar, Ynnari, tyranids, genestealer cults, orks, necrons, tau empire.
So, what happened to the other named chaos forces then?
