As a preface, I'm unsure if this belongs here or in the rumor forum. I put it here since we've already got a very steady foundation of confirmed rules to work off of, and since I figured the rumor thread on 6th ed rumors is just rumors, this thread will hopefully be appropriate. I'd like this thread to be specifically focused on how people believe the confirmed rules changes will affect the general tactics of 40k. It should be a thread of predictions, projections, and innovative ideas. It's not for wishlisting, griping, or rumor questions.
Overall the goal should be to take a broad overview, regardless of race, and see what tactics can be deduced from the rules/weapon types/unit types. Race specifics should be avoided (for the most part) to ensure the thread doesn't devolve into "Army X gets nerfed so hard" while "Army Y gets buffed so much." Questions we should ask and answer are things like: how will the changes to vehicles durability, speeds, and embarkation/disembarkation affect the meta? Does "Hammer of Wrath" make jump infantry viable assault units that we should all look out for? Or is it just a gimmick? How will HS and FA choices scoring in certain missions affect FOC choices?
Since this is a prediction and projection thread atm, there will be a lot of opinions and "I think"s, but this also means that the best arguments will be those with greater mathematical support, or clear logical validity. Hopefully based off this thread we can all work together to build innovative new ideas, and break curves/see trends before they happen.
To pre-empt any side-issues that could bog the thread down the official rumor thread is here: http://www.warseer.com/forums/showth...cussion-thread
and the best source I've seen for rumor confirmations is here (the guy even included a pic of his acc name and the rulebook itself in a link he posted):
