Stick with 3rd, or use my 3.5 Edition (which is the best of both 3rd and 4th).

Play a few games, ignoring anyhing you think you know.
Yoda put it best:
Quote:
You must unlearn what you have learned.
Read each section through as you go, and as the new bits are found, implement them in your game.

Basically, start all over again.

There aren't that many changes, most of the stuff is the same.

It's really hard to do that. Because you just play 3rd Ed basically, with occasional changes. You're never sure when to check the rulebook.
I've read it several times but I can't get it to stay in my head. Maybe that's because I have the BFG rules fighting them for brain-space. ;D

If anyone wants it, I have a rules update saved on my computer which has all the changes made between 3rd and 4th ed.

It is from the GW website, I dont know whether it is still there or not
