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?
