Hey guys, we've rolled back to 1.0.7 due to a few problems people have been experiencing. We hope to have a fixed 1.0.8 out tomorrow. Until then you can find 1.0.8 under "Open Beta" in the betas tab.

Sorry for the inconvenience. In the future we will release new patches to a beta branch before making it the default for everyone.

Some great and interesting changes. Happy to see Dreadnaughts receiving some much needed love. I am interested to try out the adjustment to the "Ere we go" ability for Ork. I found myself closing so many gaps with the 1 additional tile movement after talking my first move and then attacking. Heavy Weapon squads on t2 is going to be pretty strong. Some great adjustments made to the special recourse tiles for Necrons. Really excited to get this new patch a go tonight with the buddies. We have all really been enjoying the game so far and are eager for more.
