"WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND MY NECRON/BLOOD ANGEL ALLIANCE

You understand me, right, Draigo?"

*Hugs plush Draigo*

"Oh, Draigo, you're so cold... Let me warm you..."

True story.

I am sure his yearly salary keeps him warm at night.

OK so you can't deal with Draigo IA, I'd reckon "Draigo Envy" is more about you than Matt Ward.

The whole thing sits just fine with me, particularly since it dove tails quite nicely with the new allies rules.

I like your sig. Are we now in some kind of competition to 1-up each other or something? How does this work?

I don't blame Draigo. The model is nice, and his rules aren't super overpowered (Unless you play chaos, in which case you are boned). It really is matt ward. He has this thing he does, where when you hear he is writing a codex, you have two reactions. The first is "Yes! A competitive codex!" and then immediately afterwards the horror sinks in and you get the "Oh god! He's going to rape the fluff!" reaction.

He has never failed to disappoint.

I just don't see anything in a Codex anywhere that justifies all of the crap that gets heaped on the fellow.

Fluff evolves over time, nothing wrong with what he has written.

Which is the usual piss weak response I get when I ask that question, never anything that actually backs up the BS.

Try answering questions once in a while instead of redirecting so you don't have to justify yourself?

In all honesty, having read the fluff in Ward's books (and he did write the Fluff for the Sisters WD Dex!) I don't know if he's all responsible. We often forget that there are a number of people involved in these books, and in the case of where Ward was the only one writing the fluff (Sisters) he didn't do bad to be honest.

Besides, there is FAR worse out there than Ward fluff. Some of the stuff that's come from /tg/ is pretty god-awful, and there is FAR worse out there in terms of BL books (C.S. Goto), or fan fiction in general. Ward may not be a genius in terms of his fluff, and there are parts that aren't all that great, but there is FAAAAAAR worse out there. I'd say he's at least okay, and mediocre at worst.
