Warhammer 40K 6th Edition Release Date! Maybe?
Patiently waiting for the new rules.
This is the next six months of GW events at Warhammer World. Couple of interesting things on there, what is College of Artisans and How do I get a place in an Imperial Armour War March?
Take a look at the weekend of July 14th/15th. A studio open day followed by Warhammer 40k Cataclysm. What do you think that is eh? There have been whisperings of 6th edition 40k coming out in July so this may be the real deal.
It may just be an unannounced event but there is historical precedent.
A new rulebook is generally released in the summer with the new box set following in autumn.
Finally we may get to see what if anything from the wish listing leak appears in the rules to huge choruses of "I told you so" from whichever camp was right. If this is the real deal I am interested in what cataclysm is.
Even as far back as 3rd edition there were rumours that the story was being moved forward, that the Emperor would die and Ultramar break off from the Imperium and the western edge of the galaxy is sucked into chaos.
Whilst I am not expecting any significant move forward we should remember that the 'modern' age of 40k was reclassified as The End Times with the revelation that the Golden Throne is definitely broken down.
Time will tell but best get those new armies started now if you want them ready for the new rule set, we are!
