Amen to that brother. Having said that though, I would restrict certain things like these new datasheets like the Tau one and the SM one with the two storm talons and the storm raven either to one per primary detachment or alternatively limit the amount of points you you spend on them to certain percentage of your overall total. same goes for super heavies.Tthe only thing is that if you do that with the super heavies it may end being unfair becuase super heavies are worth differing points values and if you're only allowed to spend say 25 percent then some armies would be able to take super heavies lower points level games than others because, for instance a baneblade costs less than a lord of skulls. If I had of been the one authering Escelation would have been authored differently and would have been far more balanced, for example I would have put a percentage restriction in place, but instead of limiting the lord of war slot to certain select list of super heavies, I would have included other option from Apoc like the linebreaker squadron as it's pretty much the equivalent of a similarly priced super heavy, both use the big pie plate, also three vindictors have the same number of hull points as a baneblade as well. Still the great thing about 40k as a game is that we are actively encouraged to modify things to our liking and negotiate with our opponents as to what we are llowed to take or not, which rules to include or not, and even the ability come up with our own unique rules from scratch. Of course this is only really applicable in the beer and pretzel environment, which luckily is where most of my hobby and gaming takes place. I plan on experimenting with things a little with my gaming baddies and try out a few things, find out what works for us and what doesn't.

Banning allies is interesting. From a personal point of view I wouldn't care. I never have enough points to get everything I want in my primary codex, let alone spend stuff from another codex. Since 6th edition I don't recall ever having allies. But I am also not opposed to other people taking them regardless of the power combo they create.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I couldn't agree more.

I've got 18K of painted Eldar and it's hard enough to choose an 1,850 Points army list from that little lot, what with them all shouting "Play me! Play me!"l.
And now I'm going to start leaving even more of them out of my list just to shoehorn in some Johnny-cum-Lately's?

I don't think so...

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

I like this thought. Ban Allies. That actually fixes a lot of the broken lists...

Allies in an army are fine ,in my opinion, as long as the player has a really good reason to have allies in his army (THEME!) and the army doesn't look like its OP.
Players need to remember the game is play for fun not play to win and piss everyone else off!

This is for tournaments right? So no ones gonna bring any theme based stuff, and the allies are so intone mic it's not even funny- blood angles/necrons your having a laugh! Tau/orks when was I friends with my greatest enemy?
Allies in tourneys are just a way to patch up your armies failings- taudar for instance or space wolves with tau for melee defence, or imp guard for blob squads or cheesy fliers or tanks ETC
