Characters in 6th Edition 40k
Independent characters got 3 pages in 5th Ed rules. In 6th Ed Characters still get 3 pages. But Independent characters get an additional 2/3 of an indented box page that summarises most of the 3 pages of rules in 5th Ed. While the actual 6th Ed characters section introduces a significant fun change in the tactical game with challenges. As a result the Characters section of 6th Ed markedly adds to and changes the way in which the game may be played. While the GW emphasis in recent years has been to build bigger, bigger and bigger and more complex battles, city fight, apocalypse, reducing points values for vehicles, flyers, reserves etc, the small addition of character challenges enhances the possibilities down at the smaller game level and markedly adds to the fun element of the game at this level.
