The only non-sisters units I used to take were inducted Guard. I can safely say I'm doing better with this list than the old one. My units are better in combat due to having both frags, kraks for tanks and bolt pistols for if I really have to charge. I do miss the book, but crying over spilt milk won't win me games - adapting will.
There is nothing wrong with this dex that creative thinking won't fix. Get over it, it's here to stay until we get a full book.
I'm glad for you, that the new WDex suits your taste. But if you want to start a career as a GW suppository, please do so, without telling us what we should like, what we should discuss about, and certainly not, by telling us to adapt to every piece of dump GW scat before us!
I'll admit this WDex is still quite a bit off of what I'd deem unacceptable and from a strictly competitive view its neither better nor worse to me, some things got better (Rhinos, ...), some got worse (AoF, missing options, ...).
However, there are many little things with this WDex, that make it a huge let down for me. First and foremost the use of Sisters as guinea pigs for something GW had failed before. The apparent lack of care shown by presenting a half painted army, the many incomprehensibilities in the codex and the WH errata still listed on their website.
Add to that my not-so-objective issues with the feel and the style of play of the new WDex, as well as the direction it's leading the Sisters.
Not even mentioning general issues about miniatures.
It seems we will be stuck with this WDex for quite some time and it might as well be true, that neither complaining nor discussing the problems will change that or the upcoming Codex. But not discussing it and pretending to be happy with it, won't change anything for certain!
PS: Guess what SilverTabby, some of us do not just play the game to win, some of us play, to have the kind of fun you can enjoy even if you lose
