Look it up and you'll see what I'm on about. Mini army vs. full army with hilarious mission twists for a bit of game balance.

...like hell I'm buying something that has an Imperial fucking Fist with a frag cannon.

It's not about having a full sized army, it's more about themed game play among those nostalgic enough to remember the WD rules/missions for the Last Chancers.

And the anti-phasic bolts only affect bolters/combis, so no help to pistols in the hands of the Vanguards.

There's also bonus VP if these guys slay a Xenos warlord.
Meh, that's not too appealing to me. If I was gunna do a Formation of Sternguard/Vanguard I'd bust out the modeling skills and concoct that BA Formation where everyone gets free power (VG) or combi-weapons (SG).

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
