There are some speculations going around of what is going to change (not all of it good).
Has anyone heard anything? And opinions on this?
Here's a little something from "warseer.com".

|well iv always promised my self if thay change the rules agen i will not move on to it as i feel there taking the mik now, i may even revert back to 2nd ed shore it tolk longer but i do miss the 2+ armour save on 2D6 for terms and being able to lob frag greanades and kill with them and the more relistic damage results on tanks|

| It was a 3 up save on 2 d 6, not a 2+ save, other wise you'd never fail a save on a 2+ on 2d6.
The new rules are needed, as of now tanks need adjustment, infact the 5th edition is looking to be the best incarnation of 40k, closer to a playable 2nd edition than ever before.
Oh and Tyranic Vets can kill with grenades in the edition we have right now, throwing grenades was way over powered in 2nd edition it turned waves of gretchin in to a killing wave of little mad bombers.
I will have to SEE 5th edition and play before I whole sale turn my nose up on it.

| Im fine with it changing rules as long as they dont "dumb it down" too much so your army is not as flexible and all armies for each race become the same or very similar.
If i have to rework my Falcon Guard list.. grr
But i can easily see people rejecting these new rules and using the old variants...

|in short terms its not handyto buy a rulebook now>?|

|No I wouldn't buy a rule book, rumor is that 5th edition will be out before 2009. It's a rumor though, but I wouldn't buy a 50 dollar rule book, you just might be buying another one in a few months.|

|Looks like we will be seeing 5th edition by July, and a new Codex Space Marines in October, cross your fingers, theres allot weighing in the balance this year.|

Referance to GW's profit margin and share price?

Well your spot on everyone that is going to continue playing will need a new fancy rule book, and especially marine players will also need the new codex in Oct. With the new box set coming in August and drop pods some time before Christmas, it looks as though GW is pulling out all the stops this year to make a financial turn around.
