Stuff they are mentioning in the semi-humorous video that comes before actual rules talk
 
-more starting cp (less soup specifically mentioned)
--using stuff from a codex will get you more CP,you can spend them to unlock more detachments from other armies + the usual stuff
 
-tanks can fire in h2h (presented as answer to gretching bogging them down)
 
-crusades are narrative rules (sounds like kill team advancement rules,but more complex and far reaching)
 
-"explosive weapons deal maximum damage to hordes"
--blast is a new type of weapon,good at blowing up mass infantry
 
-new terrain rules
--de-streamlining terrain rules since they feel they went overboard.New rules have models and terrains interacting better with regard to LoS and cover
 
-flyers changes
--new rules to better manage intweractions between infantry and flyers . Also new rules for strafing runs (including the fact they can get off the table without exploding at table's edge)
 
-reserves
--you can field in reserve stuff you coudlnt before to protect it from fire (or w/e)
 
Hopefully they'll explain some more in the actual talk That's all of it for now
 
 
 
Also they talked about a new app (what's that,the forth one?) that seems will be a bit more involved than just managing army building

So aircraft's getting an explicit buff at the same time as almost every aircraft on the store is getting a real world price increase.

 

Hm, really makes you think.

-CP: using stuff from a codex will get you more CP,you can spend them to unlock more detachments + the usual stuff

 

-Tanks firing in melee: basically that.

 

-Terrain: de-streamlining terrain rules since they feel they went overboard.Better way terrain interacts with LoS and cover

Command point changes sound great - mostly derived from the size of the game rather than detachment shenanigans.

 

Good.

Tanks can shoot even when in contact.

 

Well thats nice for the CC armies where this was one of the few viable tactics for them to survive more than 2 turns...

They're really good at saying a lot of words without actually telling us much. The 2 min trailer summed it up way better without all the waffle.

I like how they're talking about a lot of the 9 things and saying "we've reworked from the ground up" and "it's a new weapon type". These things aren't new; they existed previously and just got tossed out the window for 8th. It really gets me that they basically pretend that last editions didn't exist and the problems aren't directly the cutting out of game mechanics.

Well,they admitted it for terrains at least.

As usual.We already know they are going to milk the reveals for weeks,expecting them to not use the "lot of smoke,a tiny bit of substance" approach would'be naive

I just want to point out that Pete Foley's whiteboard show's aware the team folks really are - it says:

Things to do today:
Assemble plastic Thunderhawk
Write rules for Angron
Confirm Dark Angels are actually the best!

:lol:

And Fenriwolf, it won't matter to some folks - they automatically dislike GW even when they admit something was wrong and got changed. It's cool to hate and all that - 40K devotees of a certain age (especially those that fell hard for the grimdark) often forget that they were some of the first edgelords...

It's good to see that they think they removed too much and some complexity might be coming back, will be interesting to see how it is handled in game.

Just before I posted above you, I sent a message to my friend saying "These aren't new rules worked from the ground up, they're fixing the bad rules decisions in the change from 7th to 8th" :P There were some other words in there too, but not suitable for this forum.

When he was first on it had

"Next Codex squats tyranids Space Marines!!!"

 

Bit *too* on the money...

Yes, I laughed pretty hard when they talked about flyers leaving the board and returning later. This was already in the game six years ago!

All sounds good, i heard command points  will be you start with more and it costs CP to buy in other factions or FOCs, which feels like a good change depending on the costs!
