As I've been saying for years, every time GW introduces a new product -- be it as major as a new edition or as minor as a redesigned paint brush cup -- the reactions are eerily predictable:  33%

I predict that the new edition will fix a lot of the imbalances of the current, the first half dozen new codices will be nicely balanced, and although the Internet hive-mind will figure out a couple q

Yeah. I just hate it when people voluntarily agree to exchange their wealth for the goods or services voluntarily being offered by others. 🙄

The week before I decided, “Yup. Gonna do it. Gonna collect a Custodes army!” there where four boxes of Sisters of Silence on the “clearance rack” at Guardian Games and all my favorite online retailers had them in stock.

Two weeks later? Sold out everywhere.

D’oh.

We have a Sisters of Silence player here locally.  He's been scoing 22-25 points in every game but not winning much.  Maybe it will be better in 9E.  Iay.  it's worth noting that his denies people from scoring quite a bit with it as well and opponent scores arent all that high either.

I registered on the web page a week ago or something like that. Try going to mywarhammer.com and register there instead. However, that being said, the new 40K crap is not worth the download currently. There is no list builder and you have to subscribe to get any info. You also can't unlock content that you have bought since I'm pretty sure they will only enable that for new 9th ed books only. So basically, get ready to be bent over for $5 a month for info you have for free now with no list builder. And according to reviewers, there are no PL or point vales.

They responded to me on Facebook about ten minutes after I posted a question about this. Said they were aware of the issue and working to fix it... and it’s working now.

Subscription to the app gives the basic rules, an army builder, and the rules from all Eighth Edition codices... As new codices are released, you’ll have to purchase them. I figure it’s worth $10-15 bucks to try it out for a couple months. If it doesn’t work the way I want it to, meh, that’s one less Large Meat-Lover’s Pizza on my waistline.

What I’m hoping for is something that can replace BattleScribe for list-building and unit  stat cards for an in-game reference. If it can do both of those things, then I’ll be happy.

I was all hyped about taking the Banner of Macragge Inviolate on the new Bladeguard Ancient for my Ultramarines until I read that the Relic is for Ancients only. The Bladeguard Ancient's +1 to hit for Bladeguard Units is NOT tied to his standard. With the UM banner, they would have been +1 attack, +1 to hit, autopass morale. But he has the keyword "Bladeguard Ancient" which is annoying. I'm thinking I'll probably just use the Primaris Ancient with UM Banner, Victrix Honor Guard, and the Bladeguard Captain as a nice little CC unit. In an Impulsor I think. Yeah, looking like I'll be making some big changes to my UM. Exciting times!

Depending on how nice their app is will depend on if I use it beyond the first few months. Still need to get the registration email

It’s weird that the Bladeguard Ancient has the keyword Bladeguard Ancient, but the Primaris Ancient has the keywords Primaris, Ancient; the Company Ancient has the keywords Ancient, Company Ancient; and the Chapter Ancient has the keywords Ancient, Chapter Ancient.

I think this is probably just an editorial mistake, a result of trying to update the thirty codices, seven codex supplements, and thirteen campaign supplements all on “Day Zero,” rolling out the new edition’s rulebook, and no doubt also trying to get the first two or three codices for the new edition finalized... and during a national lockdown to boot.

This will probably be addressed in the next Codex: Space Marines, but for now I guess just roll with it.

After the, "no state will work" problem this morning I finally was able to give GW $5 bucks to see what the app had other than a PDF version of the rules. The parts I see are nice enough, but not $5 per month when Wahapedia.ru is free. I will wait to see how the app evolves. I hope the rules become part of the app, not just a PDF.

Core rules are free. The $5 is for the list creator, access to all 8th ed rules, etc. I have not paid the $5 and have access to the core rules portion. They look to be the same as the free rules that was posted to the Warhammer community page earlier this month.

I could not access any of the material on the "References" tab on the bottom left until I paid the $5 fee. There is no army builder yet. The search function lists searching rules, but only searches datasheets. Not worth the $5 yet.

On the app in the bottom there are 3 tabs. The references are the 8th ed rules you unlock by paying the monthly sub which I wish they just did a yearly sub. 

The bottom right has a Core Rules tab which is all I have unlocked atm. 

Yea the Army builder is not yet out

Yeah, I'm not sure HOW they are going to get this app on iPhone. Apple are tyrants about apps, requiring full access to the app for a very lengthy and technical approval process. Then, every time the app requires an update, it has to go through the entire process again.

I have a feeling the hang up is GW trying to negotiate the fees. See, if an app is "free", then the creator is charged a one time fee to apply to have the App put on the store. If the app has micro-transactions or a monthly fee, Apple gets a percentage of that fee- and it's a hefty 15%-30% depending on the type and amount. The reason I know all this was due to the CS 483 Mobile Application Development class I took last year where we made apps for both Android and Apple, and we went through the entire process to get an App at the Android, Google, and Apple store.

Seems pretty clear cut that they would get hit with double fees then right? After all they're choosing to pursue a freemium pricing model. I think the delay has more to do with outsourced development and needing to port what were originally Android app design assets & architecture into Apple's framework. But who knows 🙂
