My guess is they want to add flanks and ranks.

Oddly enough, the way they deep strike that drop pod in the video is actually more-or-less how it worked in Epic once upon a time...

So fantasy gets scrapped for being too complex and becomes 40K-esque, and now they're turning 40K into a tactical style game a la old fantasy?
:?: :? :?:

But Duckman.. The possibilities are endless. Round bases brought much needed liberty to fantasy and square bases will bring 40K the flanks it always craved.
The video explains the rest :D

I'd say it looks silly, but 40k stopped being a sensible game a long long time ago. So why not go with square bases?

The point is: GW wants you to spend more money.
In order to manage this, the game with square bases gets round ones, and a height increase in minis (from 28 mm to 32 mm)
The game with round bases gets square ones (and I would bet a dramatic units size increase - as in WHFB 8th edition which made larger units stronger and more reliable with steadfast rule).
They ain't getting my money anymore. Definitely.

I'm sorry, but the only thing I can think of in relation to this subject, is this Youtube video...

Why are they changing it. What's wrong with the way it is now?

Welcome Wilton to Druchii.net. :)
Be aware that these sort of first post, a single line with a vague sentence which could apply to pretty much any threat, is usually considered as a sign that you are a spam robot, not a real human with genuine intentions of participation.

Could you elaborate a little bit? ;)
Thank you.

I don't think they are changing it. I think it's a joke :)
