Meh, I'm guilty of doing the same thing. When the SoB WD came out I was a bit pessimistic but still hopeful the next WD that had the points costs would make the army viable but that turned out to be wrong. 12pts for a Battle Sister....
You wanna compare a Fire Warrior to a CSM? Pfft, compare a Battle Sister with a CSM, for 1 point you get +1WS/S/T/I.
But Sisters have a 6++... <--Fuck you and everyone else who thinks that's useful!
So far I think the 6E dexes have been pretty balanced, nothing has really screamed OP, Helldrake perhaps but I remember all the blogs etc stating it was useless and no one would take one when we got the rumours. Now all I read is about how the Helldrake makes MEQ armies useless etc etc etc.
Once the dex is out it wouldn't surprise me if people say Fire Warriors are the best infantry in the game for their cost or this unit is op and that unit is op.
So far it seems only the Kroot get pretty badly burnt but we dont have the rules yet so we dont know. Heck they might have a 2+ cover save if in terrain, can assault 12" and eat their victims to heal models that died during the battle. Then again they might be as shit as the rumours claim.
Only thing that worries me right now is that we have no SoB rumours at all, out of all the armies in 40K and Fantasy combined they need a re-release the most. Even more than the Tau do. Yet they dont even seem to be on the radar for a release, at least not this year.
I'm curious to see the rules as this is the first Xeno 6E book.
