Just feel like the harpoons are off. Off brand, maybe? I dunno, but just doesn't feel right to me.

Really dont care to argue about it. *shrugs*

I'm with Triszin on that, the Legio Custodes look amazing, why can't FW do that with the Wolves?

 

Also how do you include someone's else comment in your comment (so I don't have to keep adding names)?

Just tried that and I end up with my comment, but not the one I'm quoting on.  Odd, maybe a browser issue

really wish that FW would stop with the whole 'every space wolf needs a bare head' thematic.

 

Jsut my personal taste i know but ill be 100% avoiding all these upgrade kits as none of my new wolves im working on will have bare heads.

 

The shields are ok, jsut wish they didnt all have that big ruby in the middle, would be ok if 1 or 2 did, but not all of them. The torsos i think id just pick up the old FW upgrade kit they already had as they are nicer.

 

--------------

 

On the harpoon/spear thing...i quite like it..especially when combined with shields in a bodyguard unit. Spears keep folk at length. I would see them being more like a custodes spear than an old whaling harpoon though (e.g. something you could also slash with)

 

In game terms,

 

- you could have a similar boost to the old initiative value (which from what i remember is what power spears used to have?), in that a unit with spears always hits at the same time even when charged.

 

- You could also have a unit choose to throw spears, but they then lose the weapon for the rest of the game biggrin.png would be pretty silly

 

- Or they are just power weapons with bonuses against large foes etc.
