Will these updates, or at least the most important ones, be added to the free version of the rules as well?  I have this nagging concern that they may not be.

It's a separate book. Chapter Approved.

No. These are additional rules by the sounds of it. In the preview on the community site it has additional/different missions and such. Seems more geared towards matched/tournament play.

They're not all optional though, Boots on the Ground for instance. Explained on the Community page so free, currently.

It's a separate book. Chapter Approved.

I appreciate that, but what I was driving out was whether certain rules, such as Boots on the Ground, which Rummy mentions above, are going to be included in the free rules once Chapter Approved comes out.  The concern for me is that updated core rules, such as this, will end up being in the books only and players will be told that if they want to have the amended core rules they will have to pay for them.

Those are not core rules. They are supplimentary rules for matched play. No matched play rules are available for free.

Looks like chapter approved will be the generals handbook for 40k.

My wonder, is if it'll replace the matched play rules in the cardcover rulebook, meaning you don't need that book.

No matter what, the tournament scene is pretty messed up right now, I'm happy gw is working on a system to sort it out. And, a lot of these changes seem based on one's the ITC has already been using.

The preview on the community site states that you can choose which matched play rules to use. So I would assume it does not invalidate the core rules.

Hello, could somebody please let me know where is the canon / official source for the advancing storyline and new stuffs in 8th ed mentioned here?

Dark Imperium/8th Ed. fluff leaks/rumors : 40kLore

It's a list of the changes, like on 4chan. But what's the source? Is it the rulebook for Dark Imperium?

Thanks!

allll over the place...

Some of it is covered by the Gathering storm+Audio series taking off from there, Some in the new rules book and some in the new codexes. Sounds like a bit of guess work is in there as well.

Those are not core rules. They are supplimentary rules for matched play. No matched play rules are available for free.

The video says they are rules for all 3 play styles, not just Matched play.

The Deathguard and the Adeptus Mechanicus are on their way.  And look at that, rules for individual forge worlds.  Makes me confident the IG will get regiment types back.

Oh yeah. I'm excited when Tau and Necrons get the the chapter treatment too (and My Harlequins!). I cannot wait to see what cool ability the Masque of Midnight Sorrow gets!

Prices for the Deathguard stuff have been leaked and it looks like Mortarion is going to be even more expensive than Magnus!

Yup I figured somewhere in the $120 range. I got the GK dex and it's nice but not $40 nice. It's a shame that they don't just do a white dwarf with each armies upgrades for those if us that just want to play and not fluffgasm over it all. I know how expensive this is from 26 years of it. The books with the armies are nice and somewhat affordable.

yeah I guess they are moving everything to age of sigma style, including the pricing.. named hero's range from $180 - $280 for us down here.

Funny thing is I see a lot of returning players with 8th, some are starting from scratch again, but they are all adults, I have not seen any young people picking the hobby up, not in my LGS nor the local GW store, in talking to the staff they have noticed the same thing as well.
