Warhammer 40k 7th Edition

I looks like we'll have another edition of Warhammer 40k at the end of the month. It has the appearance of just being a cash grab to inflate the end of year fiscal numbers, probably to increase the likelyhood Games Workshop will be sold.

Among the new rules rumors for the new edition, is opening up the force organization chart and playing "unbound." That means you can just play with whatever you want - no restrictions, no rhyme or reason. There are a few bonuses to playing with a regular force org, but this just smacks of a sales pitch to move more models. I already dislike the allies chart in 6th and it looks like I'm going to dislike 7th even more.

Jervis Johnson talks about it in this video.
