If they have more than 5 wounds, killing an opponent's named character should be worth victory points. Ten thousand orks dying to slay Guilliman is a victory for the orks.
Of course, that comment should be irrelevant, because primarchs shouldn't be playable in matched play.
I agree absolutely.

Thanks to the Horus Heresy novels, Ultramarines are actually kind of cool...
-2nd edition was really not bad to play if everyone involved played with restraint.
So long as you didn't play against Eldar, or either of the two particularly nasty Space Wolf builds, 2nd edition was the bomb.
Playing with restraint is recommended with each edition of 40K
as each can be broken by a particular combination of units. 2nd was by far the most detailed version of 40K
and thanks to the Dark Millenium
boxed set provided you with a plethora of great templates and even rules for constructing your own vehicles. The last one was especially an Ork´s wet dream. And nowadays afaik
the Orks can´t even bring a looted wagon to the battlefield. LOL
After 8th I am even more convinced the 2nd was and remains the best that GW
will ever produce. They could resurrect it and retcon all the most recent primaris girlyman bad dream garbage but why waste good... Ummm... Bad IP right? Anyways i wish that they would.

There should be an official inquisitor in 40k
names "Obiwan Sherlock Clouseau". He was the first named inquisitor in the original rogue trader book and should be made a character.
He could have the Clouseau rule which means attacks aimed at him have a chance of hitting a nearby friendly model.
And look at this guy, you know you want to paint him.
elements should return. There should be less board gamey dice rolling math hammer and more identification with the warlord and personalization even where this doesnt add up to win buttons and min max optimization.
went the other way with monopose sprue design to ward off second supplier shoulder pad replacement and orher modification and the toyification of ork vehicles with admittedly fun though again monopose buggy designs with trademark names that no one wants to use or remember and special rules that could be associated with hobbyist mods but that are difficult to convert and even worse that go together in an all of nothing SuperBuggy(tm
Hasbro wanna be posers have taken over the ship.
This is the true Heresy of our era.
Will will stand idly by and see the old gods laid so low for what? Corporate greed?
Do we sell our loyalty to the vision of the emporer for plastic crack and Duncan's voice repeating over and over <paint name> (tm
) thin coats.... Thin coats....
Wake brothers and to arms. Take that snazzwagon(tm
) and cut it up. Chop it in half. Modify it and make it your own for today we hobby and tomorrow GW
will have lobbied the thugs in government to make it illegal. It is their IP after all...
Oh and this terrain here. This is hard cover. You get a minus 2 to hit. And cannot target models that are not visible to firing models so without LoS
you wont be removing casualties. Yeah my dudes dont run into machine guns from cover just because the rest of their unit got caught in the open and one more thing... Plasma explodes on an unmodified 1. Every time. Just that easy...
O yeah. And every faction has something like plasma. That is some weapon tech that fills a hole in their available tools but that is just outside their abilities to manage and maintain. So orks have lots of gunz that explode on 1s and even eldar have distort cannons which might drift onto their own units if their intended target is close enough due the nature of ripping holes in the fabric of the universe... And so on and so on...
Color does not equal complexity.
