So I've recently gotten back into both 40k and Fantasy only to find that BOTH of my rulebooks have become out of date. No big deal right? WRONG! GW was the spine to charge us 90$ for a rulebook, where the rules make up less than a quarter of the pages.....WHAT?!?!

Agreed, either have to fork out the money for the full rulebook, or wait for the miniature one to pop up.

I don't understand; you're upset that they updated both game systems? I'd argue that both were improvements over previous generations. If it is the money you're concerned about...welcome to capitalism! I'd charge $90 if people continued to pay, too, and judging by GW's latest earning statement nobody seems to be objecting.

Don't get me wrong, I don't like paying that much either, but I don't think we should be overly surprised at the prices GW charges.

You are surprised? This is GW everyone knows what they are like for their pricing. Just wait till next month to either get the box set or get the minibooks off ebay.

The Current 40K Rulebook

We are currently in the 6th edition of Warhammer 40K. This has been out for about 6 weeks, and is a vast improvement over 5th edition. No worries about a new edition coming out anytime soon, so if you have this one, you're fine.

Now to await the coming FAQ wave.

Compare it to a college textbook: it's cheaper, and you will use it for more than 6 months. With that in mind, it's a bargain.

GW brought out a new game. It doesn't stop you and your friends playing any of the old ones. Pretty sure I'll still play the occasional 5th Ed. game.

Personally I really like the 6th Edition rules. And game updates are hardly new in the gmaing industry.

Updated rules generally is a good thing.

My main complaint is, I play dwarfs, that I have to buy two warrior boxes in order to have one playable unit.
