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?

a couple of times when people thought they couldn't beat my army i have offered to swap and played them using there own army. Most well made armies can cope with any other armies reasonably well
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
so if you take 2 libbies in one command squad you've spent probably over 400 points to get the opp to make those ld tests. i'm not denying its a good power but i just think is it anyworse than all the stuff other armies can lay down
