That wouldn’t be to bad at all, the sisters ones seem pretty good, not broken but a nice little boost for running mono faction.


Yeah, Gw always either goes bonkers over the top crazy or super undershoots with their "new thing we want to try and then roll thru the codexes".

Combat Doctrines are looking more like a "6th ed Valkyrie/Heldrake/Night Scythe" or a "7th ed decurion" then they are a "7th ed first few formations" or a "8th ed Marine/CSM/Admech/Eldar chapter tactics"

then they forget about it for the rest of the edition and just leave the players to deal with their mistake.

After the nerfs the basic doctrines aren’t to bad a bonus to ap for various weapons that changes each turn is nice, now they just need to reign in some of the super doctrines a bit. The BA one adding 1 extra attack on the first turn of close combat turn 3 and on is neat but rarely do I actually get to make use of it, as the melee units are dead or the opponent is. Some of the other chapters super doctrines are way to good.

I think scrapping the doctrines and rolling some of the bonuses into a 1 use stratagem or stratagems might be better, you pay x CP to activate a doctrine for 1 turn and can’t use it more than once(maybe just make it a single strat so you only get 1 doctrine for 1 turn and no more), then give the various chapters something closer to on par with the sisters bonuses where you can pick one small buff or 2 if you roll(could have some unique ones for more unique chapters like BA, SW, and DA.

I run 3 because if I don’t go first I usually lose 1 to 2 in my opponents first turn, this may change a little with the new terrain rules.

The Invader datasheet was leaked, and Multimeltas appear to have gone up to Heavy 2. The half range ability was changed to D6+2 damage instead of roll twice/take better.

With the rules change I’m going to have to consider picking up one or two of the new primaris razorbacks with the close range anti tank load out, twin las talon and what looks like 2 multimeltas.

I would hope that if the new codex doesn't drastically alter doctrines (or standstill and fire twice) that event organizers start doing something to address the imbalance.

Heavy 6 AC? Heavy 4 lascannon? On a platform that is probably 80-100 points based on the PL?

The real kick in the teeth will be when there's not another day 1 patch FAQ to give chaos, guard, sisters, etc heavy 2 multimeltas.

You don’t want them to buff multimeltas for other armies when they change it for loyalist marines?

These datasheets/booklets just seem a bit weird. (Can't say I'd be surprised if they buffed Praetorians/Lichguard though - or a repackaged spider.)

I mean I guess you could move to "datasheet is stats, special rules are in the codex somewhere else" - but it seems unlikely.

So while there isn't really any reason to doubt them, I feel we are missing something.

what's interesting to me is that the new melta rule (the damage +2 thing) is not on the eradicator datasheet. They have the usual, half range, roll twice rule.

If they were planning on +2 damage being the new core rule, why wouldn't they change it for eradicators?

and if those datasheets are just "filler" and the core changes are coming in the new 'dex, then why would Storm Shields be changed in the new datasheets? Why not just leave off all changes to the codex?

Seems pretty GW to not have any consistency with this sort of thing. They probably were printed at different deadlines and they changed stuff in between or the intern that does the pack-in pamphlet datasheets just used the wrong one "Is it 'Invictor 9.0v2v4 (latest)" or is it 'Invictor 9.1v1v3'?" situation

Oh, if ONLY we had some kind of universal, game-wide change method we could use to take these shared profiles and update them all at once, across all factions.

Would that we could do that sort of thing during an edition change, but alas, we have so many OTHER things we need to do then, like interpreting the pattern of gak our caged chimpanzee throws at the wall to determine the new points values of everything! We also have to hit ourselves repeatedly on the head so we avoid remembering any lessons we learned over the course of the previous edition.

Good point - maybe they figured they were already overpowered and decided to give them lesser versions

I'm beginning to wonder if they aren't from a draft version of Edge of Silence (the pamphlet in Indomitus). The format is very similar, down to the picture and quote in the sidebar.
It would also explain why these things all have points at the back of CA2020 as well.

No idea why they don't have any special rules though (beyond 'its a draft version). The Invader should at least have Angels of Death, since its a Biker unit.

I'd suggest waiting. This changes nothing for any other multimelta.

Says "Multimelta", not Heavy Onslaught MacroMultiMelta or anything. If the points leaks were right and the Lascannon was 15 while the Multimelta is 20, this would be a good reason.
