For me personally it's more like, if I'm going to spend $125 and 5, 10, however many hours building and painting this thing, it's not worth it if I have to think about if I'd be able to take it to a local tournament or whatever.

Because people making up rules is easily abused and especially among friends it can be hard to say "Hold on a minute".
For example, our game group once had houserules for really custom characters. This led to custom units which then led to an entire homebrew Codex that won every single game. Anecdotal I know but you'll find a lot of people have similar stories or things about people using non-original material for their rules and doing a bit of un/intentional cheating.
Among good friends who have similar mindsets it can be done but at your local with a group of acquaintances it's going to be a lot harder.

Though it's bit different to adding one keyword to gw unit datasheet. As far as house rules that's one of the most reasonable ones.

But yeah no luck for tournaments or random games in flgs you haven't pre-arranged and instead just show up.

We actually have that very discussion in our group right now, with no result so far.

The chaos knights player wants to add just one keyword so he can use his FW knight which obviously is an abhorrent class properly within his crusade force.

Now the next ones wants proper keywords for FW battlesuits and TS legacy units. Another TS player already starts planning a list around getting access to pre-nerf warptime through legacy.

A player asks to remove martial legacy.

While they were at it, I asked if we could fix biker nobz and give the battlewagon keyword to the kannonwagon and the squig keyword to squiggoths. Someone claims this would be too strong for snakebites (it's not).

One player is confused by all this and suggests not using too many house rules.

A marine player chips in that GW did leave out those keywords for a reason.

Multiple people agree that FW rules are a mess to big to fix.

We are back to square one.

"just use house rules" only works for a very small group of perfectly aligned people or for groups were few can forcibly push their houserules on others.

[...] To the Ork, the only conceivable explanation for this is that the vehicle travels faster because it is red. However, as disturbing as it sounds, these 'facts' become true. Red Ork vehicles do travel perceptibly faster than those of other colors, even when all other design aspects are nominally the same. Similarly, many captured Ork weapons and items of equipment should not work, and indeed do not work unless wielded by an Ork. I believe this is linked to the strong psychic aura surrounding all Orkoids and have developed the Anzion Theorem of Orkoid Mechamorphic Resonant Kinetics. I theorise that many Ork inventions work because the Orks themselves think that they should work. The strong telekinetic abilities of the Ork's subconscious somehow ensures that the machinery or weaponry functions as desired.
This is literally all GW has ever writte on this topic - everything else is meme knowledge

Yeah, in my experience implementing house rules often requires rules bartering (i.e. "sure you can do that if I can do this"). More often than not one person tables an offer that is less reasonable than the other and the agreement either falls apart because of it or the agreement proceeds and falls apart later due to escalation.

Anybody knows the base size for the new daemon prince? From what I´ve gathered online there seems to be a consensus on 60mm, but it does feel way too small for how the new mini looks.
I´m currently painting a kitbashed one and would´nt like to be stuck with the wrong base size.

IIRC it was confirmed to still be on a 60mm

I'll be very glad if it stays 60mm.

I was hoping for them to go to 100mm like the charater DPs, or at least get to 80mm.

Was not expecting rules for Traitor Guard. At least, not before the AM Codex was released.

They seem to be a little better than Cultists.

At least the options in the Datasheet are actually in the box this time.

1 more points gives them a 5+, which seems worth it.
Do they have any other benefits besides getting other Special Weapons that I'm missing?
