The Grey Knight Effect:
So how many clubs out there are experiencing the same thing as we are?
The Grey Knight effect…
Has literally killed the 40k community at our club. Now we will have some die hards, but in general, people simply are no longer that that interested in 40k. mainly due to grey knights. And honestly, for our guys, I do feel bad for them. They were not the bandwagoners that most of the people who know play GKS are. They had been waiting for that book forever and most of their army still consists of the old GW models. But what are the rest of us supposed to do? When we have the option of many other game systems or opponent to pick, why on earth would anyone want to play against the Grey Knights?
We are hoping 6th edition can bring balance to the force, for the sake of the game, for the same of our club members who play grey knights, play against grey knights and for the community at large.
For now, we have suggested to our guys that they run an army other than grey knights. Oh look, they get more games in. big surprise. I hope this is just a short lived time period in the 40k timeline, and they 6th brings hope for a bright future.
It will be nice timing that our fantasy league will be ending right at the beginning of 6th edition. It was a nice jaunt into the fantasy realm of wizards and knights, but I am ready for some chainsword and bolter action again.
