It is coming?
But, looking at the new poi to from chapter approved, I think we are going to kick butt. We know from codex space marines of quite a few buffs that are coming our way already. the extra wounds, power weapons, dreadnoughts... as well as some nerfs (core units)
But looking at the new points, the cost of our units is not really changing. ALSO, our troops (in particular our PAGK
) are not going to pay for Falchions, incinerators, psilencers (which I've been advocating for for years, if we are giving up a storm bolter and a force Weapon, then make some up the other equipment setups free)... and the PAGK
only went up 1-2 points per model, depending on the unit, making those PAGK
so much more survivable. And the fact that psycannons are going to cost points to upgrade makes me think they are getting a boost in their profile... maybe.
Most of the hq
are about the same price, or went up or down a few points. But the GMNDK is going down quote a bit. Elites characters (apoc
and ancient) are reciveing some adjustment in points, which makes me wonder if the Apothecary is going to work more like a space marine one. Paladins are coming down in price, which makes me think that they are not getting much love in the new edition. Dreadnoughts will likely gain the damage reduction the space marine version has.
Hoping crowe doesn't suck....
