I don't play 40k to crunch numbers. I play to have fun. I don't consider it fun to see a penalty right off the bat for my simple unit selections when I do not get any benefits in exchange for upping the unit size thanks to the way Blast weapons work.

Oh, okay, so it's not actually because you understand the mechanics involved or the effects of the change I'm proposing; it's because you see a -1 and that makes the sad face.

So here's an alternative idea: Squads of 6-10 models get +1Ld. Squads of 11+ models get +2Ld. Wow! Bonuses! Also, we'll be doing a balance pass where we reduce the Ld on every datasheet by 1.

Would that be more acceptable?

Why are you so weirdly invested in forcing a penalty on minimum sized units to begin with?

Because you can keep throwing numbers all you want, it's a terrible design to penalize someone for something like that.

In fairness, MSU armies tend to be fluff-destroying abominations that suggest "I play to WIN, screw the lore" instead of "I play because I love and respect the lore".

Is it true that Space Marines can run away in 8th edition? I don't recall seeing that in any of the books or computer games. "Leg it brothers, all is lost!"

Please pray tell how MSU is against the lore.

I saw a list, possibly on Goonhammer, for a Tau army that did well in a tournament. If I recall, it was a commander and two cadre fireblades, and the troops choices were all drones, then I think there were two of the largest battlesuits.

"You have proven yourself well in battle. You have earned your reward. You will lead a small number of gun-drones."
"But I wished to lead my bonded kin into the furnace of war. We have fought together since -"
"We no longer deploy our soldiers into combat and instead we send drones backed by a Commander. It is the way of things."
- Excerpt from The Raping of the Fluff by CS Goto

1. CS Goto hyperbole from someone complaining about power gamers? Never seen that one before!
2. Drones aren't troops and never have been.
3. You didn't really answer the question of how MSU breaks the lore.
