Going to SEE the new rules before making decisions. Try before you buy, but try right away.

I am interested to see what the new book will bring to the game. My problems with the game come not from the rules, but from the players who feel it necessary to win so hard at a game as to be a detriment to other's enjoyment. It is one thing to face of against an army that has a Riptide in it, it's another to face of against 3 or more.

I have really enjoyed 6th edition, though I started in 5th and wish that some parts weren't changed the way they were, or that some things would have been implemented sooner. I think Allies are a neat way to expand on a collection, play more fluffy, and gives you a clear way on how to make a more-than-twp-player game work. Flyers are an interesting mechanic that adds some interesting dynamics to list building and deployment. Really, the only 6th edition rule that I dislike is Challenges, as I don't see the mechanic working all that well in 40K like it does in Fantasy. Let's change it up a bit, okay?

I will definitely be getting the new book, because I have put a lot of effort and time into my armies, and I enjoy moving little figures around on a board and rolling dice to represent their actions. I will not be downloading it off the Internet, because I will help support my FLGS. I am hoping for the best, but I am realistic about what this new rules set can bring.

I expect my actions to be largely determined by my gaming group, but I expect them to adopt 7th pretty soon(within the next 2-3 months or so).

I'm going to base my decision off of the white dwarf previews and reading through the store copy at my local GW. If it is actually a new edition, not simply 6th with super heavies in the core rules, then I'll buy it.

I don't have the Stronghold Assault or the Escalation books. If the rumors are true, that they will be integrated into the new rule book, I see an advantage in picking up 7th. However, how soon I do will be determined by the price. If its US$120+ ish, it might be a while before it gets added to my shelf. Less than that and I'll pre-order.

I'm concerned by the speed of this release compared to the 5-6th transition-that coming out with new editions so rapidly may become habit for GW. I don't want to learn updated mechanics, memorize new rules and buy a new core rulebooks every 2 years. I don't play often enough to make that worth my time, money and effort.

Never understood staying behind in the past.

6th is a decent edition, but I am always up for new rules :D

I had my doubts, but I think I'll just pick it up. If it has 2 other books added in plus some cleaned up rules...I'm for it.

That said, I'm not happy I dropped a bunch of money on the Gamers Edition less than 2 years ago. Maybe I thought the pocketbook was just barely cool enough, and kinda has come in handy. I may bite again, as I'm a sucker for LE stuff but very wary as well. If it's useful (Bag, etc) I will consider it. No LE books for me though, heh.

That armored fist bundle was (and still is) pretty nice. At least I thought it was nice.

I picked up my 6th ed about 6 weeks ago, so quite disappointed that 7th is going to be so soon.

I will be holding out to see what the new "starter set" brings as with DV you get the full rulebook in the little softback version (which i find much better on the tabletop when i have used both), and a bunch of minis (ok not as good as the individual pieces, but might bolster my armies). Just depends what they release.

Im keeping my fingers crossed that rumours of orks being in the new box may indicate the ork codex coming out soon after or around same time as 7th, in which case picking up the starter, with rule book and some orks to bolster my forces will help me justify the spend on the ork codex.

Or something like that :)

If Orks were in the box, I'd agree on expecting a new codex soon. Sadly, I believe more that the box is Eldar / astral mileycyrumGuard.

I doubt that it won't be Ork and Blood angels. There hasn't been a starter box without Power Armor.
