Sixth Edition Ho!
Despite what I had been hoping for, it looks like the changes will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. I see a lot of people having a good upset over what rules revelations we see in the other pages of the sneak peak, and I must admit that while I don't share their concerns, I do understand them. Especially Eldar players who are mad they got less Psy powers than the Skittles Marines.
I don't use Psykers (I always forget to use their stupid powers, so the points are better spent on more torrent fire), but I know a big part of what makes playing Eldar special is how they are supposed to be skilled and powerful masters of Psycraft. Being worse at it than a bearded Space Wolf shaman is like saying Einstein could beat R. Lee Ermeigh at arm wrestling!
