One thing that was sort of added-in-but-not-noticed made a huge difference
in our games...That units had to take the shortest route possible to enter
close combat, and that it is not possible to attack your enemy on all sides,
(unless you have him surrounded). Another big change was the inability of
weapons with no save modifier to take down void shields/power fields.
There were also substantial changes to the pinning rules. Now anything not
pinned in close combat, but is still in close combat, can fire out of close
combat, ie. skimmers, titans, etc.

Oh, and I almost forgot, there is now an almost universally despised and
very poorly thought out psychic phase before first fire. This is the first
thing that the people I game with agreed to completely ignore. It just
causes way too many arguments.

No, I would say that it isn't really worth the cost, and it could be quite
hard to get anyway. I'll take a closer look at the two and email you privatley.
