We’re going to make it easier than ever to get your hands on the rules and start playing. The core rules for the game will be free, and you’ll have several options on how you get your hands on the full rulebook. Watch this space for more.
Definitely a bit of leeway there. From just that statement you could wind up in a situation where you didn't actually have enough rules to play a full game or at a tournament kind of level. But Age of Sigmar had basically everything available for free at launch so presumably if they're saying this for 40k then they'll do similarly. So maybe getting the materials won't actually be a problem?
Joe,...howsabout' scaling down the army size/points. This would leave more time for people to check/reference the new rules while playing in the tourney
