The Officially Unofficial Not-6th Edition of Warhammer 40,000

Woops, well this is embarrassing.

It turns out that there’s a good chance that the leaked sixth edition of Warhammer 40K that I and others decried as a hoax may turn out to be, while not the official sixth edition we’ll see later this year but rather little more than a brainstorming exercise carried out by the GW developers early into the edition’s gestation.  Right now The Shell Case has a few more details  here and I’ll try to find some more links and info for you good folk soon.

I still feel that the views I expressed in my previous post on this subject are still valid however.  This rule set appears to have been misrepresented as something it is not; while this could have been done in error, and with the best of intentions, there is the possibility that it was released maliciously by a person or persons who knew that this was not the finished article it pertained to be.  If that is the case then I hold those responsible in very low regard.

Anyway, rant over.  Whatever the sixth edition holds we’ll all know soon enough and I know I’m looking forward to it.
