Don't we all still call it Feel No Pain? I'm pretty sure moste people in Poland use FnP. I've never actually heard DR
Maybe it will come paired with ignore ap-1... That would give some protection vs small arms fire, example - bour infantry would ignore the ap - 1 from bolt rifles, making them more survivable against d1 weapons (better armour save). On the other hand they would be more survivable against 2dmg weapons.
This wouldn't help poxwalkers though and would still leave many strats and tge plague surgeon useless...
I still to this day, make the joke of "How much pain are we going to feel?" when rolling DR. Followed by "He will feel exactly 'x' (failed dice) pain."
Picked it up in my 4th ed Blood Angels days, never been able to shake it since.
I don't think we'll get an AP ignore, since the rule/lore is way more about them getting hit, and suffering the effects of the damage, but their bodies don't give a damn. Gaping lascannon wound? Roll well enough, and honey badger don't care.
I think the 5+ will remain, which on 2W bodies will still be very powerful, while still being dope on nurgle deamon engines and anything using the corrupted monstrosity strat. Especially with the poxmongers 4++ action my contaminated defiler and 2x PBC have been loving lately.
