Does anybody have a complett list of all the Changes?

 

Orgyns going up is a little bit strange. But i think this won't impact anybody becouse nobody played them anyway;)

Mortars and Wyvern going up seems also pretty random. both aren't that great

But i can live with this random point hights as long they leaf the Guardsmen at 4ppm.


A good soldier obeys without question. A good officer commands without doubt.

I believe Hellstrike missiles were reduced, but I’m not sure. If they were the flyers just got usable I think.

Wonder how the Stormhammer and Storm lade turned out.

The stormblade will never be any good unless they rework the rules for its main gun. It's total garbage right now. Baneblade has a whopping 50% more firepower and additional guns.

Did I hear correctly that scions dropped to 7ppm, but command squads are still 9ppm?

Yes. Makes sense from the point of view that GW seems to have a vision of how specific armies should broadly be played. And for Command Squads, given the restrictions they put on them over time, it's that they should be support units and not necessarily beefed up special weapon squads that get spammed out.

The Baneblade family is interesting now...you can can get 3 for under 1100p (3x364), which gives plenty of space for support elements. I think you might even be able to bring a Brigade and 4(!) Baneblades...at a certain it raises the question of heavy armour saturation for your opponent.

Note, I do not own a kit and never played one in 8th, so this is just speculation on my part.

Sounds like you're going to have to do it now! ;)


I wondered if that was going to be the case about the scions oh well not necessarily a bad thing

Oh yeah, I know. :D

I have a sizeable army at this stage, some of it even painted (yes, I will get around to putting pictures up here too!) but no real superheavy support. So they are next on the list.

The Baneblades have to wait though...I still have my half finished Marauder waiting to be done. No new superheavy until that one is ready to fly.
