Truth be told, it's not that difficult to circulate a new set of rules in the information age. Dump a .pdf on your web site and presto! it's fixed.

The hard copy versions take longer to print, but it's a far cry from the 90s and Aughts when GW had to publish corrections in a magazine or sell an "annual."

That's another reason I think it better to wait and see. If the howls of player protest really induce changes, that will be the moment to play.

As to the new models, etc., I'm agnostic. I buy exclusively on the secondary market or use non-GW models. I don't even know what GW tanks cost these days, but I know that Tamiya kits are super-cheap, have excellent detail and even working running gear. Plus, they're fun to modify in new and exciting ways. I have to say that as I've gotten older, I've gotten more pleasure out of conversions than game play.
