Balance isn't bad, and it's clear that (despite some rough spots were designers get too caught up in trying to make rules to the same level as the models) GW has overall gotten better at it.

That's why everyone complains that everything (save the over-designed stuff that you can tell were someone's pet project) sucks.

It's also a multi-part building, so it's actually two AV 15 pieces.
Thankyou sir, It appears I am a little behind the times.

I do have memories of 3rd. Ed cover generation basically ending up with both sides using the cover to create cover for their gunlines and/or a 'tunnel' for a crazy charge.

8 tactical squads on a hill, anyone?

Does anyone remember 'Melta-missiles' and 'wrist-mounted grenade launchers'?

I just recently got into Warhammer 40k a couple of months ago with the purchase of the Dark Vengeance Set. Been looking at all the videos, been buying the books and have increased both armies gradually. I'm probably at the addictive, can't believe I didn't know about this game before phase
I really enjoy the site and seeing all the content and like the idea that in a way its not getting old but rather rejuvenating or whatever. It's nice to see a hobby that is still producing new stuff as of late. I'm already liking the looks of Necrons but I'm wondering if I should wait for the new codex to come out. Oh ya, Im a Happy Bunny...but She Bunny isn't thrilled

I'll be impressed when GW does an actual reduced sale that makes me want to buy something from them instead of Ebay.

And then people get mad they paid full price or that the discounts weren't "low enough". There is no winning for GW.

And living in a recession, I need to save money. Hence why I build slowly and only buy at cost through other people.
