I been playing games at my local GW and it seems everyone is obsessed with cheese. Anything i use and win with must be cheese and god help you if you want to take more than one of the same thing in your army. I see much cheesier lists everytime i look on the net but If i take something like an example of Fear of the darkness librarian i get ripped into about it by 3 or 4 guys and the redshirts as i play with someone. There not even in the game. The libby walked into battle in a termie squad. it didn't even ds or pod into battle.

Another guy there got the same thing for having 2 wraithlord in his army and that was from a gw staff guy who has 3 wraithlords and no wraithguards in his iyanden army.

so whats with all the cheese guys? why can't i take what i want without all the comments and people saying maybe we shouldn't let him play in the store?

There is always a way around the cheese, the Siren Prince still has to take a psycher test and Sisters of Battle ignore the Siren power (that that is only one unit type) and FotD does dick to a fearless unit, which is a large amount of chaos forces. While those tricks are nasty they do have some holes in them, though admittedly those are some small flaws compared to the benefits that those powers provide.

Is Fear of the Darkness really that bad? its only got a 12" range after all [taking tigerious though 24"=harsh]. The armies it really punishes are those that take static lists which bunch up and sit there near the back of there deployment, taking very little tactics to use. Tau can take etherals, but very few ever do, whilst IG have some of the best ld outside fearless in the game. You can make all you squads within the leadership bubble LD10 with a re-roll so against the darkness its still above average.
I do think its a powerful power but not quite on par imo as siren and similar
Its nasty because they will arrive via Drop Pod and there are usually a pair of them, thus your LD is lowered, you take two tests, and you don't have anyway to stop them from hitting you. (Though your opponent rolling poorly for reserves can help.)
