As i was expecting, every SM unit got CORE, except characters, vehicles that arent dreads, and centurions. Thats ~8/10.

Now, lets look at necrons. Their CORE units are : Warriors, immortals, tomb blades, lychguard, deathmarks. Thats ~1/10.

SM are the CORE army of the game, though.

Balanced Game: Noun. A game in which all options and choices are worth using.

Maybe though, just maybe, some of their auras work off different keywords than CORE? GW have different rules levers to pull now.

I dont know, but auras usually only work on CORE.

The Destroyer Lords buff Destroyer Cult units, one of the Cryptek variants is specifically Canoptek support.

Necrons don't work around the CORE keyword in the same way that marines do.

Really ? Necron auras affect CORE units. MWBD only affects CORE units. A HQ unit buffs a CORE unit, sounds very marine like to me.

Necrons have a good system. Specialist units get specialist characters that support them in both a thematic and rules interesting way.

Space marines get everyone working on all the buffs because reasons. GW feels marine players aren't smart enough to handle splitting specialist units into their own keywords and giving them their own support or something. You could easily do the same thing along the same thematic lines. Split marines between core, vanguard, first company, and fire support. Core is all your intercessors and your bikes, first company is all the vets, the termies, and possibly the dreadnoughts. Fire support is devastators, centurions and all the aggressor armored units except the heavy intercessor. Vanguard is the same stuff as it is right now. then you give each one their own captain that gives out buffs to them and not the other sections. They already have half a dozen captain datasheets. And the chapter master can hand out a generalized buff for all the things he does now to reflect being in over all command. Boom, thematic breakup of different sections in the space marine army. You can even start shifting what each support character does for their specific keyword group.

necrons have destroyer lords that buff destoyrers etc. they work differantly from marines, that doesn't mean it's bad. how everything interacts together is going to really be whats important here, we won't know how it all interacts until we're looking at starts etc
