I've sent an email to the FW Team regarding many rules errors and potential balance fixtures - such as Powerscythes granting Rampage rather than Sweep Attack (in practise sweep attack rarely grants more than the 2 attacks you have anyway) - as well as those characters who are "touched by fates" to recieve Eternal Warrior for free to actually give them a reason for being taken.

I don't see why game balance etc needs to be sacrificed for some authors love of a particular tactic.

It was done ages prior to Christmas - I recieved an email back a few days ago, signed off by "Alan B" which reading between lines was that they hadn't anticipated the power creep, and were looking into reworking the rules for later books including Chaos rules for the legions.

I'm impressed they responded to you about that stuff, @Vaz . It seems in general that a decent amount of excitement and creativity goes into writing rules, but far less thought about how those rules effect gameplay over all.

You should see the stuff they don't bother responding to. When I was bedridden I must have sent about 3 emails a day that were rarely responded to after the first.

They should just give up and hire me as a tester/rules checker.

Hows that different then the normal game workshop practice?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

It isn't, but since he was talking about the FW team...

I imagine it's different writers, all equally bad at proodreading, editing, and understanding how they're changing the game.

I would instantly give Vaz more credit as a game designer, assuming he has no professional experience.

I got a response when I asked them whether they would be doing dreadnoughts for all the legions, this was a while back.

Anyway do you think they'll add any raven guard stuff? I'm considering doing a force of Solar Auxilia as the Therion Cohort with some Raven Guard allies and eventually Corax.

Hard to say. Alpha Legion, Iron Warriors and Raven Guard are all in the same boat with no kits produced for them (sans Shoulder pads). only IF have anything from Book III, and that's a pair of upgrade kits.

Hmm ok, I'll start with the Cohort for now then, do you think the Solar Auxilia suit them? I'm worried they may be a bit to elite.
