The Old Rules
All that old stuff is still good. There's no reason not to keep playing a previous edition of the rules long after it has been superseded. Just because GW releases new editions of the rules and new codices to go along with them doesn't mean that you can't still play the old rules sets if you want to.
The urge to play try out something new is very strong. But if you had a lot of fun playing the game in an older edition, there's nothing to stop you playing that edition long after a newer edition is released. New models might require some rules modifications if you want to include them, but what's to stop you from doing that too?
In fact, my gaming buddy Badelaire has been working feverishly on his Crimson Fists army, so we may soon play the "Battle of the Farm" scenario from the Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader rulebook. Using those rules. If we do, the battle report is going up here.
