Generic Legion Stuff
-Breachers: Give them access to CCW. Hell, let me take Chainswords instead of bolters and I might consider them for my Blood Angels.
-Cement playtest rules as definitive. Destroyers finally feel like they should always have.
-Scrap the Deathwing and Stormwing rites of war because they are just awful and re-write them from the ground up. The Deathwing one is an objectively far more terrible Pride of the Legion with no reason whatsoever to take it and the Stormwing one has super neat ideas but the way the centurion upgrade and requirement works basically guarantees that A.) Only the highest of points games will ever see a stormwing army and B.) they cannot properly utilize their advantages due to how the centurion requirement is worded (i.e. only your compulsory troops choices get a slot-less Centurion - all other units don't).
-Give Interemptors access to Rhinos as a DT. Practically nobody will take them in a Dreadwing army because just taking a basic 10 man squad with their DT of a Land Raider Proteus will run you around 450p which is insane. Rhinos would solve this issue.
-Allow the Enigmatus Cabal to vary its unit size. Being stuck at just 3 models is super weird and sees them mulched within moments. It also doesn't help that a unit that's supposed to be centered around character assassination is eternally stuck with AP3.
-Clarify if the Legion Rule Mastery of the Blade applies to Corswain's The Blade.
-Clarify if the prior RItes of War available in book 6 (Ironwing and Ravenwing Protocol) are obsolete now or technically still usable.
-Rework the Scions of the XYZ-Wing rules. Their points costs are insane and whichever legion RoW you take will mean that you have to sink in 75 points into upgrades that are oftentimes just nonsensical. Why would anyone take Scion of the Deathwing for a singular reroll in a challenge - an upgrade that does not confer to the attached unit AND is 25 points - when you could instead take Scion of the Firewing for the same points cost and grant the character and attached unit Hatred (Characters) instead for the same points? Scion of the Stormwing will almost never be useful as will Scion of the Ravenwing. Scion of the Ironwing will be ignored by a 5p upgrade that is virtually ubiquitous across armies. Only Scion of the Firewing and Scion of the Dreadwing are remotely worth taking. I had expected something alongside the Thousand Sons temple rules - stuff that is actually beneficial - just maybe a tad toned down.
-An access to AP2 swords as legion items so that our sergeants could take actual advantage of their legion rules. Doesn't have to be as strong as the WS glaives - AP2 at initiative swords would do perfectly fine, even if priced similarly as WS glaives. Hell, I'd take them.
-Clarify the Grenade issue with the Dawnbreakers. Do they now have assault grenades or not?
-Add jump-pack upgrades for our characters. The fact that Crohne and Raldoron don't have any access to them is just stupid. Particularly Crohne, who is the legion equivalent of a Moritat Prime and supposed to hang with the Erelim and the Destroyers.
-Scrap and rewrite the rules for the Crimson Paladins. From front to back these just don't make any sense whatsoever - which is a shame considering how SICK they look.
-Just do something to make Saboteurs and Headhunters worth taking. I'd love to play the Headhunter Leviathal but having to take Headhunters themselves is just naff.
-Alternatively: Let me take Seekers as a troops option in the Headhunter leviathal. After having used Seekers as troops in my Firewing army, I have learned to appreciate them a LOT.
-Iron Circle need some fixing 'cause I hate the way my four battle-bots are collecting dust in their case.
-Erasmus Golg should have Leadership 10
-While not having to take morale tests from shooting is nice, the second part of our Legion Rule (giving wrecker to grenades) is pretty much nonexistent. It'd be nice to get something actually useful - I've been playing a lot of 40k IW recently and while being able to fully ignore most types of building-provided cover might be a bit much, I think something similar to that might prove to be fluffy and strong at the same time.
-Not technically part of the thread topic but I don't get to mention it enough: Give me rules for Dantioch. Turn him into a force-multiplier, like a frail Perty or a mini-Guilliman. Pls.
