Among the changes to this codex, a number of models were rendered, well useless..
Not “this unit is crap now” but either “this unit doesn't exist anymore” or “this unit cant have that weapon anymore”
sadly this has affected a couple of models I’m quite fond of.
Obviously everyone knows Marbo is gone. now I'm a bit miffed form a gameplay point of view cos he was good fun, but i am not honestly that cut about regarding my model, its not my best conversion or paintjob.. still, it’s a model i just cant use now.
Now these I am miffed about, these are still some of my favourite models, my priests, I took em when they were crap, and now they aren't I cant use my models, – the eviscerator inst an option for them anymore and they come with an autogun not a shotgun. – by the way, good luck finding the autogun in the codex, it isnt there. nor is it in the BRB. I found a line in something that said it was the same stat line as a lasgun, so meh. shame.
Also quite sad about these two. these were my company command bodyguards. sure they could be platoon sergeants, and most likely will be as I put together a blob squad, but that’s not the point, – I don't want to have to get a frankly horribly ugly box of ogryn to use as a bodyguard. I cant see the benefit of that as the nork deddog model is oop. I guess they are hoping that this move will make us buy the box set. If only someone would explain to them that what makes us buy box sets is good models combined with rules….
On the positive side… anyone else interested in sergeants with boltguns?
Anyway, that's what the new codex has taken form me, – oh and I need to repurpose a few things obviously as primacy changes codex to codex.. but that's another topic.
What is most notably missing from your army now? apart form its name that is :)
