Default Spearhead, fearsome or fail?

After getting my white dwarf through the post this morning, I read through the spearhead rules, but i'm still undecided on them as I feel i'll need to play a game before making any judgements

however i want to know you're first opinions on this


cheers

Haven't got mine yet. Bloody Royal Mail! But I expect to quite like it - after all I do like tanks!

the new missions, and setup is quite interesting, i also like the fact that destroyed super heavies count as an objective for your opponent in some of the missions

the fact that super heavies are allowed is starting to put me off however

cheers

I love the rule set. Can't wait to try this out, and for the other spearheads to appear on the website. Also I may get lucky with my new Guard tanks on Friday so this could be interesting.

The rule set is interesting, but is there anywhere online yet where they actually list what units can make up a spearhead? It's not in the WD issue.

Are you looking for Spearhead: Formations (on the GW website). Although you have to sign in in order to get the PDF, it's free to do so.

I haven't gotten this month's white dwarf yet, but the datasheets make it seem pretty interesting. From a competitive standpoint, I'm sure there's ways to be really obnoxious with it. That said, this doesn't seem like an expansion for the power-gamers, and I think it will be great fun to rampage around with tank columns and tides of warriors.


Though if they had some spearhead package deals online..... that would be really keen.

Check my Purgators progress log, and give me crap for not working on them enough!
