Talk:Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition

From 1d4chan

I'll Leave the Core Rules here: https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Lw4o3USx1R8sU7cQ.pdf

Now that the rules are up, what are the general opinions on it? So far it seems the major differences are clearing up some iffy rules, making it so that modifiers on your to-hit rolls cap at +1/-1, and removing Overwatch as a core mechanic. Some of the rules are still written weirdly though: Reinforcement units cannot make a Normal Move, Advance, Fall Back or Remain Stationary in the turn they arrive for any reason -- Triacom (talk) 08:33, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

I think the "Remain Stationary" bit is going to be some trigger for abilities that apply in further phases, so it should read like " you cannot move, advance, fall back, nor trigger any abilities in further phases that required you to be stationary in the movement phase" --Halandar (talk) 08:43, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
It also affects shooting with heavy weapons, it's just worded weirdly. -- Triacom (talk) 08:45, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Jumping into the new edition[edit]

Since every book has received FAQ's that allow them to fit into the new edition, I've gone ahead and made the new tactics pages for them all. here's the updated template as of now for anyone who wants a handy link to all the individual pages, and the FAQ's are linked at the bottom of the main page.

I also just finished updating every individual faction page to link to their new tactics pages, so by this point I feel we can safely retire the 8th edition pages and prevent anyone from making 9th edition updates to them. There's going to be a lot of those in the coming weeks I feel. -- Triacom (talk) 01:54, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Watching tournament lists[edit]

Normally I'd put this on the tactics page, but I don't think nearly as many people watch and read that discussion, so I'm putting it here. It's going to be very important to watch the new tournament lists to get a feel for the new edition, and it's meta despite the rules being similar. In 8th edition ranged builds were far better than melee builds, yet in the latest GT the top 3 were a mix of ranged and melee units. For anyone who hasn't seen it, Grey Knights got third, Custodes got second, and a soup list of Space Marines and Sisters of Battle (mainly Repentia) got first. -- Triacom (talk) 18:49, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
