    Going to play my first 7th Edition Game!!!

    In a few hours, I'll be in one of the GW Stores, playing a 3,000pt Chaos Khorne(me) vs 3,000pts Chaos Nurlge(GW MGR) using the new 7th Edition Rules! I've arleady posted up on several other sites what I've read and I'll do so here, tomorrow morning.

    I'm also going to see if I can have a sneek-peak at the new Greenskins Book!!!

    Hey Dark General. I remember your Tactica Chaos posts on the GW message board, good stuff. Looking forward to your game report.

    Re: Going to play my first 7th Edition Game!!!

    I actually played my first 7th edition battle today (my Ogres vs. Dwarfs) and won. I must say that we get a rather nice boost with the new edition, while my opponent seemed to suffer more than I (he had to drop a unit to get his other infantry units 5 wide and had to get more of my ogres into combat when he charged).

    I quite like the new Psychology rules, where units in combat don't take tests and the way fleeing and charging has been better defined also made for a smoother game.

    Will post a fuller 7th edition review in a day or two.

    So that means no panic test for charge in flank and rear?

    Good to hear positives in general though!

    Yep, units in combat only take Break tests, no Psychology tests.

    I think he means that skellies and zombies (and most ItP things) are probably over-costed with the change. Some would argue correctly costed.
