Default Your opportunity to bitch and moan about your armies codex

What bugs you guys about your army lists?

Here's my first gripe

Eldar: The Falcon does not have BS 4?

Farseer: "I know lets put Jones the new recruit guardian in our heavy tank."

Warlock: "Hmm, has he ever fired a gun before?"

Farseer: "I don't think so but we haven't got any cv's from aspect warriors so he'll have to do."

Warlock: "Good'o, alls well and back to our brandy ey chaps"

It perhaps worth asking folk not to repeat something they've already said in the, What is the worst unit in the game? thread.

---

With that said, why are SM Gun Servitors the same price as a Devastator when Devastators are already a substantial increase in price over the tactical prices. And to make matters worse the multi-melta is 5 points more.

Secondly I agree on there being a different price for multi-wound models for the SM armoury, but wouldn't it make more sense to have 1, 2 & 3 wound prices? This would make the 2 wound type HQ a little more desirable.

Space marine termoinators are too exspensive in points you need like 2000pts to get them in and have a okay-ish army.

GW needs to unf*&k the Nids codex.

1. Here's your new cool Broodlord model that can take a unit of genestealers and infiltrate. But wait, he cannot fleet of claw so neither can the genestealers. They are also his retinue and he cannot leave them.

2. Biovores have to get really lucky to even think about hurting a tanks armor.

3. Biovires need to be able to fire at different targets AND be able to launce one spore mine for every biovore in the army.

Biovores can do both fire at a different target, and shoot different kinds of mines...... their seperate rule like the lictors lets them do different things, and why couldn't they shoot different mines... it's like having 2 guns, you can shoot your bolter, or your plasma pistol.

i actually think the nid codex is as close to perfect as possible.

OK biovores don't nuke tanks like railguns but booo hooo they aint meant to. But you have a 1-3 chance of hitting the rear of a tank with 3 weapons that can do a max of 15 vs an av rear armour to 10. Infact thier av roll is 10 so its a glance - thats good dude.

Broodlords have to have a retinue - ohh no the horror! please don't make me take some stealers. So what if they can't fleet, just means you have to be a bit more creative than infiltrating within 12", then move, fleet, charge.

Amen to all of that. First of the Guard codex is nigh on perfect (and Doctrines work better than Traits for what it's worth).

Secondly in the grim darkness of the far off future there is only war. Humanity must kick ass on a daily basic just to survive, and yet half of the human race on hundreds of thousands of worlds isn't included?!? It's a little ridiculous, and as you say, sexist.
