Very true, with deepstrikes and DWA I've never really felt like I needed vehicles, beyond having reliable tank killing weapons beyond a couple Cyclones up front or assaults if I land close enough. I can see some good in this idea though. I've had pairs of Predators shooting each other for entire games killing nothing before. Have to see how this is written though.

Yes indeed it does look awesome.

Actually it sort of reminds me of 3rd ed. Not entirely sure. Also doesn't look to terrible to me, though I guess with the covers as of late maybe this just seems like an improvement to me.

Huh...now that you mention it, it does kind of seem like a throwback to the older editions. I like that since it gives you a bigger feeling of something epic than the lone hammer.

I had a random thought today:

If, in 6th edition, power weapons grant a 5++ in close combat, did regular Grey Knights just get even better?

i.e., The Nemesis sword increases the invulnerable save by 1 in close combaat. And power weapons grant a 5+ invulnerable, therefor does every Grey Knight now have a 4++ in CC?

We'll have to wait to see how that works. It might be a fixed parry save sort of deal.

Well the advantage of the hammer was that it seemed to very obviously be the rulebook, or at least not a codex as it's image was more iconic than scenic. Though I still think I like this one more.

an invuln save for power weapons would make them more on par wiht the power fist. right now the fist is the better option usually. unless of course the fist gets the save too.

4,220 CSM
2,320 Necrons
1,870 eldar
1,000 witch hunters (trying to get rid of this)
1,000 SM (trying to get rid of this)
680 Tau (newest addition)

It's no more likely than power fists (and anything else that is treated as a power weapon with extra rules) getting it.

It sounds like only power weapons will be gaining the 5++ save. Since close combat weapons are gaining AP values, it seems very unlikely that any weapon in the rulebook will continue to "count as" or be "treated like" a power weapon, as they'd all be able to have their own individual statline.

What i was told was that force weapons =/= power weapons, they will have their own entry
