So its been a while
since my last post for Nick, life has been busy, moving house and setting up
working from home. I have however still been playing 40k, but that's
not what I'm here to talk about. Today I'm wanting to
ask a general question, what do you think of the current state of
With all the Dataslates, Formations, Combined Arms, Detachments and Allies. It's a
lot to get your head around, not including Forge World, Lords of War
and Super Heavies that are regularly part of the game now.
I cast my mind back to
4th/5th Edition with a release every three to six
months or so, nothing in between the big releases, things got a
little stale, Grey Knights were all over the tournament scene and
many people were wishing for quicker releases. But has today's GW

I'm not going to lie, I'm struggling with all the reading as I
prepare for Caledoninian 2015 (the biggest 40k event in the UK
currently at one hundred and eighty players sold out). I'm just about through reading the Blood
Angels book now, but, in reality I'm still trying to work out the
Tyranid releases and how they will play and with Necrons due out

comers list that has answers to every list in the game.
But the hobbiest and
casual gamer in me says this is a super cool period for us 40k
players, all these new models, new rules and formations, it's
exciting. I mean, I'm looking at the Harlequin rumours, they will be
released in the next four to six weeks and I'm wishing this to be true! Something
the 4th/5th Editions players wanted, myself
included. I think this also coincides with the balanced nature of
all the books/releases (bar Ad Lance campaign book) which to me, is
making the game very enjoyable.
I'm really enjoying the
current state of 40k, I think 7th Edition has been the
most fun to date edition for me (played since 3rd Edition,
but mainly 4th onwards) and I really enjoy the challenge
of learning new Codexes and working out how to beat them with my
But what's your take?
