There won’t be 7th or even 6.5th edition this year

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

While many sites report news about allegedly upcoming 7th (some call it 6.5th) edition, I believe it is not the case. All these rumors had one thing in common: integration of Escalation into core rules. I believe it is not the case, for if it was true, we would have Baneblade (and some of its variants) in recent Astra Militarum Codex.

I’m not basing this on any rumors – just recent releases. On the other hand it is not entirely impossible. If any of bright men and women at Games Workshop HQ reads it, please let me share what I would like to see in new edition. Apart from integration of Escalation and Stronghold Assault rules, which I still consider possible (and it would be appreciated by many players) but less likely than two weeks ago.
