At this point I have no idea how we got onto that track.
If you just go back a bit, you'll see that that mr. Reaper over here suddenly starts claiming everything well be awesome again if GKs just lose half of their codex because apparently, Matt Ward made a Mary Sue mess of it...
Because ironically enough, the units that "Ward" (because let's face it, no man wrote a codex singlehandedly anyway) added to the 2005 daemonhunter books when the 2011 codex came out, are:
- Brotherhood champions
- Rifleman dreads
- Mordrak and Ghost knights
Baiscally, everything that was added then, is almost the only thing that remains of the book. Because you know... Ward sucks, and even though he's no longer here, it's somehow HIS fault again that they have to cut out the mess that he's made of the book.
Except that, when you have any knowledge of the prior books and think for 2 seconds before mindlessly droning on about a "Wardcodex".... you'll see that the stuff that "Ward made", is all that remains in this new codex.
The stuff that remains in the new codex that was already there in 2005:
- Brother captains
- Normal dreads
- Normal PaGKs (now knows as Strike Squads)
Or are you just here to go neener neener gk ward sucks yadda yadda.
This pretty much sums up his arguments thus far. GKs were OP, all the rest is fine now (despite... you know... facts about Eldar presence on top tables). So they deserve this treatment because Mat Ward made an insanely powerful codex. Even though almost all the stuff he added is still there, and the list that he didn't add to the army is SHORTER than the list of things he did add to the new codex.
