Wade definitely knows the modeling side of the hobby, but not so much the playing side of it. His army looks great and his conversions are quite nice (google wade's world eaters for tuts and wips) but that's about all the good things I can say about his army

So... Basically we have learned that GW staff members are bad players, or what?

The following has to be pointed out... these are the people that are supposed to balance, and enhance the game!

Again, it is because they are in the business of selling miniatures, not writing articles on proper competitive level play. The article was clearly pimping the new Daemon Prince model, Spawn and Predators. Maybe other things that don't get used in the common Lash list to which I was not paying attention. They like to show off the things that are non-standard in order to try to help them sell stuff.

They're non-standard because they suck!
Why not spend your time fixing the bloody thing instead of write a fucking god awful tactica!?

The goal is that you buy stuff. The means of achieving this goal are irrelevant, so long as the goal is achieved. Consequently, if a low quality tactica can make mentally challenged customers buy models of questionable worth gaming-wise then it is what they will write, and most likely on a whim. Unfortunately, customer satisfaction doesn't seem to be on the to-do list of GW. From the looks of it, if they release something thats edible to the point of actually being good (read: at least reasonably competitive), it is either a coincidence or a Space Marine Codex.

The fool, the coward, and the ignorant proclaim that the warp is a realm of unknowable peril and indescribable terror, that it is the hell of countless ancient myths and legends. This is a lie, told by those whose authority is based on lies, to keep the masses terrified of the unknown. The warp is limitless power and its secrets are infinite; it is knowledge and strength, life and death, and the untapped potential to make and remake worlds. It takes only the discipline and the will to shape it; those who lack that clarity of purpose are liable to be shaped by it instead.

The biggest problem with the tactica that I can see is that it's dealing with an army that's far to big for normal games. How many of us regularly play 2'500 point games?

That said his ideas aren't to bad. While I'm not sure how his Daemon Prince has managed to get a cover save (a blessing of Khorne perhaps?), his idea of deep striking the termies and oblits probably takes some of the heat off his Berzerkers.

All in all, he must be doing something right because he seems to have been using that army for ages.
