I'll definitely be running lictors now. Even Warriors, now that I can have my swarm AND my swarm leaders.

I'd also love to run two crones and two harpies. Financially this remains beyond my reach, but it is definitely on the cards. The new grounded rules just make them so much better.

Tzeentch, flaming, chariots.

Zion pointed out that 7th rules make a chariots rider RELENTLESS, unless i miss understand that, or there's something else in the way that i don't know (i'm unsure) then by god, that thing has turned from 'joke' to monster!

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

WIth my Dread Mob I've been using for a few years, I can finally field as many walkers as the points will allow for. My favorite change is that now that escalation is in the rule book, I don't need to warn my opponent about bringing a Stompa to the table for the sake of being courteous. It always leads to some form of list tailoring against me. One or two drop pods with full combi-meltas, or melta bombs that I know they would never take in the first place. Now I can bring one and not worry about them crying foul :D

I'm wondering if Unbounded would allow you to not have to adhere to Infantry Platoon composition, and thus allow Conscript armies? Rules seem sketchy, as it states you still have to follow unit composition with Unbounded , but platoons are not units per se...They are just a single troop choice on FOC and each unit within treated as individual units. I just think fielding an army of conscripts led by priests would be fun: Could build a story behind it saying they are cowardly convicts being forced into battle to gain redemption (like penal legions).

Also, I may finally start a mercenary/pirate force, made up of dark eldar, guard and orks. Is it true you can take as many allied detachments as you like now? If so, this could be made a reality very soon...Arggghhh!!! Me hearties!!!

Exactly my thoughts. Burning chariots got immensely better for their cost.

Not really. It's still not that mobile as it can only move 6 if you want to fire, but now it can at least do it's job.
But it's hardly a monster. By that definition a Heldrake would be a supermcfablemonstertruckcartankkillerthingamajig.

I would say it can now finally do something for it's cost. This, of courses, pleases me greatly as I love the model (and own one), and now I have a reason both to use it and to get more.

Maybe if your buddy is ok with it, then sure, but I would argue it hah platoons are units, they just work separately. They count as a single unit in the codex until they hit the table. Unbounded or not, it would be like trying to only take dedicated transports without a unit that is dedicated to.
