I am so pumped up right now. In 24 hours, I will be playing 7th ed! Yeah, adult life is going to get in the way, I still have to work tonight and tomorrow morning. My book and cards are both pre-ordered, already paid for, and waiting for me at critical hit. So as soon as I am free of adult obligations, its time to be that little kid on Christmas morning.
Now, if I had the perfect new edition introduction, I would like to spend about 10-12 hours reading over everything. That way I can have time to digest the info so to speak and work on some new lists. That is not going to be the case tomorrow.
Its going to be all legionaries present diving head first into games. We are going to learn by trial and error. Undoubtedly, we will get a few things wrong. Hopefully with other members observing the games, we can catch these mistakes as they happen. We should have a good spread of army types, eldar, space marines (of multiple varieties), tau, nids, necrons, and if we are lucky, daemons!
I am really interested to see how the psychic phase works out. I feel like you will see less psychic powers in this addition, just due to the fact that they take more dice to get off. I want to see how viable vehicles are now, so the Iron Hands will try to make a good showing. Probably most of all, I really want to mess around with the new maelstrom of war missions.
I am sure there will be bumps in the road; there will be things I don’t like. That’s not going to stop me from having fun though! If you are in the area, I encourage you to come by and check out it out! I will be down there Saturday and Sunday playing. I know Critical Hit is throwing a big kick off event with giveaways Saturday. Even if you are not local to Baltimore, I encourage you to get out to your FLGS and check it out. I am sure the same scene will be playing out there too, guys learning the rules and giving them a try. Now is your chance to jump back in! If you are already pumped like me, try to be welcoming and help others out!
Until Monday (or Tuesday with the holiday weekend), this is Severus signing off. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHH!!!!!!!!
