    Missle Launchers in 5th Edition

    Now I know you all already love missle launchers, however, in fifth edition, they'll get even better. With the new blasts rule you'll be hitting tons of infantry compared to what you used to. That's actually all I wanted to say, just wanted to point it out in case you didn't know already.

    My gaming group's new motto: That army you're using is overpowered because it hurts my guys, codex is broken and needs a rewrite.

    Yea, this is great! I always thought is daft that a blast weapon would fail to hit and so evaporate. This is much more realistic. Deviation!

    Well you'll still miss if you scatter (ave marine scatter 3", max 8"). But I agree they are going to be more fun, especially four in a Dev Squad.

    The only downside is the reduced effectiveness against AV 14.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    Agreed, but you still had to be quite lucky, just now even more so

    Verily. However! Let's not forget about the thundering pain Typhoon missiles will dish out!

    Warm fraggy fuzziness is sure to abound

    Of course if you have a 4 ML squad and they all fire frag as a multiple blast you could end up with a line of templates running perpendicular to the enemy unit, and only hitting 2 models...

    Hopefully not, but it could happen!

    How so?

    Krak missiles aren't blast weapons last I checked.

    Very true - they aren't blasts and don't scatter... But they're only S8, therefore just barely able to glance AV14, which means they'll suffer from that negative modifier on the damage chart. IIRC, that makes it impossible for a Krak missile to kill AV14 without immobilizing it, blasting off all its guns and so on first.
    We've got plenty of youth... How about a fountain of smart?
