36:30 - Community changes
- We discuss how we think the relationship between AOS and 40K players will develop when the rule sets are similar.
- We take a positive slant on how we think a shared language (in terms of rules), will allow for a broader conversation between the two parts of the community.
- How having a similar ruleset allows for more community feedback and better gaming systems.
