So, I am reading the book and have been going over the FAQs and getting in a few games when I can, so here is the question...
Is the game worth playing?
Yes, the game is a fantastic divergence from what it was, not in a bad way, but in a Faster, more fun way. The system has added in a few elements from other game systems [like 40K and War of the Rings] that make the game faster and easier to learn. This will mean a lot of old schoolers may leave, but some of use REALLY old schoolers may come back [like me!].
It looks like the game has moved in a direction that is attempting to move all the different armies from the "tier" classification to a more balanced set of armies. [Yay! GW finally got something balanced!]
I am not saying the new changes will be possessive for everyone. Lord knows, I think Tomb Kings may have been gimped a little, but I don't play them, so.... *shrugs*
