I have the 5150: Book One, 5150: First Contact, and 5150: Infestation that I picked up about six years ago. I'm wondering if I would be good using these, or do I really need the newer books. What is truly different? I hear about a PEF test, and like that idea, but am unsure how that relates to the Contact test in Book One.
I mostly want to play solo using my Tyranids, Necrons, Imperial Guard, Tau, and Grey Knights that I have. I have a flyer, land raider, and three armored suits for the Grey Knights, and some of the larger Tyranids. I also have a few of the suits for the Tau, but nothing large.
Depends on what you want. The newer mechanics are a lot smoother and faster with fewer tables to consult. Really good for 2-3 short battles in the same amount of time as a 5150:Book One game. If you want a bit more grit (different impacts vs different armor types and lots of different reaction tables), then stick with what you've got.
