8th edition does not do medium battles well without a lot restraint on both players sides and a good amount of house rules. (Not that 6th or 7th were any better.



A game that has everything from a grot to a titan in the rules simply doesn't work well. Who cares what upgrades I choose for my tactical squad sgt when the knight across the table is just going to roll a few dice and boom whole squad is dead.




1000 points, cut table size a little bit, pick one of the chapter approved 2009 missions with sudden death rules so the one guy who brings a knight for some reason still loses on points.

Probably some of my most fun games in the last couple years honestly. If you have it do a full size table and pack that sucker with terrain for a real fun experience.

I agree that does sound fun but it kinda proves my point. You played a modified game with a like minded player that isn't stock 40k. I know a lot of people love Super Heavies and flyers in standard games but I think is one of the things that GW screwed up with introducing in the name of profit.
