    3+ saves in all armies

    I just realized that every army to my knowledge has access to a unit with a 3+ save except for kroot.

    SM, Sob, DH, CSM, latd, eldar, nids, necrons, and tau all have them, orks have mega armor which is 2+, so its better, but still, IG have enginseers, and dark eldar have incubi.

    Now I'm not sure about feral orks or some others like catachans, but I know that have 0 3+ save units.

    If I missed anything, let me know.

    Just found that kinda interesting...

    Well, I just thought about it for a quick second, but I didn't think of any that you missed.

    Only reason why the Kroot don't have a 3+ save unit in their army (IMO) is because unless I am incorrect, the Kroot were not initially designed to be a stand-alone army, just as a mercenary unit for the Tau. It wasn't until a Chapter Approved that they were declared a legal army by themselves.

    But yeah you're right, every other army has SOMEONE with a 3+ armor save.

    Indeed an amazing revelation. I think it is because all armies are supposed to have something with heavy armour, so that they can be more varied... I meant, most armies don't have 3+ save as standard. But having like, a single unit with 3+ or better save is not strange.

    Well, it actually seems appropriate that the Kroot dont have that kind of save, what kind of Kroot would want to be weighed down by all that clunky armour?

    Yeah, the more serious issue is that the "default" armies all have 3+ saves as the norm.

    The default armies have units that have 3+ saves, but I know as an eldar player most of our units have 4+ or worse same with Dark Eldar, and most guard, and most tau IIRC.

    **Edit**
    Picture an eldar Guardian before a battle against space marines..."sir...do we really need to strip all the screen doors? I mean everything the space marines throw at us cuts through our armor anyway...." Warlock - "Keep removing those screens like a good space elf"

    Eldar base armour save is 5+, aspect warriors cruise in at 4+, exarchs at 3+. The only units with 3+ as standard are Spiders, Scorpions, Wraith units and Shining Spears. All of these are far more expensive than the basic marine!
    I do get very annoyed when marine players moan about AP2/3 weapons... they get Whirlwinds and other kit which can make mincemeat out of 4+ troops. Blech

    As a nids player I know what you mean, I reckon just be happy with all your awesome basic stats!
