40K at 25

Gods I feel old! It’s true, this year sees the twenty fifth anniversary of the first publication of Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader.

I came into the hobby during the last years of the first edition however my copy of this venerable tome still has pride of place on my gaming shelf along side the Battle and Vehicle manuals which both simplified and massively complicated the game respectively.

I really hope that GW do something special, not just the release of the 6th edition but something unique this year. Personally I’m hoping for some Finecast Primarch models and maybe the surprise return of a race of vertically challenged bearded folk.

What are others hoping for?

    Legendary. Do you think the staff at Lenton all stand around a flag poll saluting when they release a new version. In honour of the granddaddy of it all. 🙂

    Perhaps the Slann or Jokero (sp?) could make a return. That would be a surprise!

      The Jokaero are back, sort of, here: http://bit.ly/y2j1xL and the Slann are part of the Lizardmen army as well!

      Not quite as old skool as one would like but it’s probably the best we’ll get any time soon.
