Greg posted his thoughts on the recent digital version of Codex: Space Marines here.
Here is the new teaser trailer for what I presume is Warhammer 40K, 6th edition (thanks to Mike D for the link).
"VI" = 6th ed. = June . Hmm.
The 5th ed. rulebook has not been available for sale from the GW website for a short while. However, there`s been no official statement regarding 6th ed. until now. If this follows previous GW marketing efforts, will June 23 be the date when we can pre-order the new rules, which would be released a couple of weeks later?
I admit that I am somewhat disappointed in the lack of real info. I don`t count all the various spoilers that have been floating about the internet. I have not seen a proper, coordinated marketing campaign.
Some questions for the peanut gallery:
- Does the publishing of the latest iteration of the core rules for GW`s flagship game demand more marketing horsepower than the efforts shown so far?
- What do you think of the now-usual GW news blackout? What purpose does such a news blackout serve?
- What would be an appropriate level of marketing effort for such a significant release? How would you create interest and excitement for 6th ed.?
- What kind of content and functionality do you want to see in a digital release of the core rules? What would be a fair price?
It is the 25th anniversary of 40K; I`ve been really looking forward to the release of 6th ed.
The release of new core rules is of not-insignificant interest to me. I play a lot of tournament 40K - besides local events, last year I set aside time and money to travel to events in Vancouver and Las Vegas. How will my Eldar Swordwind work under the new rules? How do I need to modify both my strategy and tactics? Should I change up the new Crimson Fists army I am painting? What new models will I spend my hard earned dollars on? I just want to get a handle on the game I shall be playing for the next several years.
