At last!...not quite
First, Phase out is gone. This alone makes them infinately more playable. WBB is being changed to work something like a combination between the old rules and FnP. Basically you'll get it vs any weapon, but it happens immediately. The orbs, which are now standard equipment make it a 3+.
The Gauss rule is being altered somewhat. Not every weapon has it anymore, but now rolling a 6 leads to a second roll...a 5+ on that will penetrate no matter what. If not, it's still a glance.
We'll see some new models, too. There's a plastic Lord kit with some new weapon options and plastic Immortals 5 a box. There's also a special character that will make them troops. The C'tan are still around and will be tweaked somewhat. There's a few new units, but they haven't given details on them yet. Still I think we'll be pretty happy after waiting so long for something playable again. In other news, today is my wife's birthday...EDIT- It's also April Fool's Day.
