So I had a thought, and this relates more to a 9th Edition DA dex more than the overall 9th edition rules. It does cross over somewhat. 8th edition introduced the doctrines.
9th will probably neaten it up up a bit, but that got me to thinking.
Back in the day, the DA banners used to mean something. We are the only chapter that I am aware of that have had five distinct ones listed. The three sacred banners plus the distinct Deathwing and Ravenwing banners. In other additions they have completely been taken out and be no more than any other chapters banners.
I'd like to see them all brought back flavor-fully in 9th edition. What if our sacred Banner of Devastation allowed any DA unit in 6" to stay in Devastator doctrine the whole game? Standard of Fortitude could do Assault doctrine the whole game, etc.....
I do understand that Psych Awakening effectively gave us a boosted Deathwing Banner and a Boosted Ravenwing Banner. unfortunately they take up precious Relic slots. I'd prefer to see each of them just be a straight up upgrade.
