Default What we find annoying in 40K

personly, i find the lack of strong artillery in space marine armys annoying. at best its a str5 weapon, where you see the slightly less advanced imperial guard, with a range of 128" and a str of 9! whirlwinds should at least have a rage of 72"..

true, but they also have a save of 5+ that = almost no armor

And SMs have a save of 3+, the best for basic troops.

What I find most annoying is that SoBs get a 3+ armor save, and a Bolter for only 1 pt more then a stormtroopers cost its utter bs.

the fact that there is no vehicles in tyranid armies and all the weapons are relatively short ranged, 36 inch at best

Artillery is all that is really missing from SM... They would be overpowered with it.

Why would Tyranids ever need vehicles? Vehicles aren't alive! Or longer ranged guns (of course that would be nice) though thats not part of their army. In fact, why did you post saying this?

(I'm confused)

For that cost we don't get frag or krak grenades so the cost is actually a bit more.

What I find annoying is that there is 2 inch kill range in combat, but I can take guys away from anywhere in the unit. So I punch a guy in the face and a guy in the back of the unit dies.

What I find annoying is that the Eldar have more anti-psyker stuff than my beloved Thousand Sons... I'd settle for a Psychic Hood, even... Really annoying considering the gear we USED to have...

For me the nerf Defensive Weapons got in 5th edition, I was a Guard player, I'll be a Guard player again. And I tells ya if Conquerors do make the Imperial Guard Codex without some kinda of ability that allow it to fire all its weapons on the move, expect the whole pram to go out the window, never mind the rattle.

But aye, in general, hate the change to Defensive weapons.

As a tau player the defensive weapon thing sucks. My basic infantry carry a gun that is an offensive weapon on a vehicle!
and the 6+ cover save provided by razor wire can stop a railgun shot!

Conquerors are the reason why 5th ed defensive weapons changed. Too many guard players stopped taking leman russes for conquerors. GW changes rules that get abused and im all for that. With that said the thing that annoys me with 40k is players taking armies just to win. IE marine players with assault cannon armies. Feed as many assault cannons in cos they is uber. Then they play these armies over and over with little change. Its sad and so unnecessary. Play for the fluff or try roleplaying it just a little.

However saying that I have been known to field sick armies including marine armies with 6 dreads. Other nasties included recently my Ork army with over 160 boyz !!!

I am green therefore I am
