The 7th Edition - to a great beginning!
That morning the rules were released we all went out and grabbed a copy, then immediately put them to the test... so far I believe the general consensus is a firm thumbs up!
The new Maelstrom of War missions have also been incredibly fun and certainly require some new ways of thinking within your typical 40K game.
Overall I'd say the new rules are pretty smooth and even intuitive, though a few of the terrain changes seem odd to me; in particular the forest / "Twisted Copse". Must we really buy the GW specific "wood" to make woods/forest/jungle work like they should? I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
I'd say every wood/forest/jungle on a base, should work like the "Twisted Copse", but loose trees/plants should not. Anyway... the area terrain changes seem a little more logical otherwise.
Here are some pictures of games from a few different days of gaming:
