Hello everyone smile.gif

So I'm a potential returning player (i might as well be brand new for how much I actually remember) and just wanted to get a quick and dirty snap shot of what the current state of things is with the hobby.

I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the state of the game in general as it stands today.
I hear 8th edition is around the corner, how soon is it expected?
Are there any glaring flaws with the current rule set that I should know?
What's the current feelings on GW and the direction the company is going? (Is it still a love/hate thing?)

In addition to that I'd also add that I want to get back in to the game with SM, specifically a Drop pod & infantry based army, nothing too grand, just enough to dip my toes in. I used to play nids. But I've long since sold off all my models and gear, so I would basically be starting the hobby from scratch. Any advice in this regard would be appreciated

I'll make a post on the army list forum soon enough, but I'm still in the very early research stages at the moment.

Thanks for reading smile.gif
