Blasphemer!I couldn’t bring myself to make an army with the old codex. It was filth.
I know I'm passionately opposed to Jervis Johnson and his inability to see things from a gamer's point of view. The Choppa was iconic to the Ork dex. It allowed Orks to take on Terminators, CSM, and Tyranid Hive Tyrants. Then all the beakie players got up and whined at the same time "Whaa! My Terminators got killed by a 80-point Ork unit! Make it stop, Mr Jervis!"
And he took away the choppa rule.
As to the chaos dex', the old one was much better. It was laid out better, had more choices, and just in general was a better dex. It had more fluff, models, and the Legion rules. Not the crap-O rules we have now for "Renegade warbands."
Sorry Jervis. I don't want a bunch of pO'd Space Marines, I want the Death Guard. The Word Bearers. For god's sake, man! The Demon rules!
I don't care that the new shiny Demon dex is coming out. For me, it's a 22$ waste of my life. I flatly use the new dex' at Tourney and when the GW staffers can see me. Otherwise, my Bloodletters and Demonettes are in support of my Black Apostle, and his Accursed Crozius.
Lesser demons. There are differences in the types. Moron.
The man should be impeached. Or perhaps explain to all the resentful gamers (some of the most loyal people I've ever met) why he chose to destroy the game we love.
