So we are getting close, and there are numerous reports of hardcover rulebook sightings at various spots over the globe. Here is what the birds are singing into our ears:

Firstly, the rule-set has hundreds of minor changes all over the place. It is a different game so we will all need to really take the time to re-read every sentence carefully as many, many subtle changes have been made all over the place. It isn't a case of the same game with just a handful of major changes.

Secondly, the leaked PDF must have been quite early as there are many, many changes from it.

Here is a set of some of the larger individual items we've been hearing:


BS of 6 and higher made it in.
Wound allocation by model is in (meaning special models may be lost early)
Torrent of Fire is gone
Intervening models (friend or foe) grant a 4+ cover save to the target unit
There is no longer any consolidating into new squads in assault (only charging can do this)
Only engaged models may fight (like now), but casualties can be pulled from anywhere
Powerfists only get the +1 attack if you have a pair (like lightingclaws)
Monstrous creatures do fire 2 weapons per turn
Vehicle LoS for sponsons and various weapons are now defined through a ton of charts
Obscured and skimmers moving fast now grants a cover save vs damage (and it is a cover save so chew on that for the full implications)
Assault Attacks versus vehicles with no WS are resolved against rear armor
Vehicle Squadron rules are very different
Vehicle Ramming is in (and skimmers get a dodge save to avoid it against non-skimmers)

Also, it seems that--according to White Dwarf--that the token and template sets will be available separately if you do not want to order the "gamers" edition.

Costs:

Tokens - $6
Templates - $15

I was more cracking on the loss of area terrain. I can hear the LOS/cover debates starting already.

That said, the rest of the rumors look interesting enough. I will be glad to have a cleaner assault phase. Looks like they are moving away from the more static shooty game, which I am grateful for.

Liking many of the ideas. Should be interesting to see how they play out. But this.
