What happened to True grit. Why are you guys paying extra points per model for it, when it is no longer a rule in the 40k rule book? It would seem it was there to add an extra attack in cc. But now what??
What about the rule for playing against demons, and doing some instability tests? That doesnt seem to be in 5th edition either.
Grey knight true grit is in the DH codex (page and still applies to the power armoured GK - but not when the GK are charging.
The rules that no longer work are :
Aegis (partial) - minor psychic powers don't exist (it's also unfortunate that it doesn't protect against the psychic blasts of daemons, but there you go)
Rites of exorcism (partial) - no instability tests, but daemons still assault through difficult ground.
Daemonic infestation - only nurglings remain
Banishment - psychic power, doesn't do anything
Blessed (partial) - vehicle upgrade, only daemonic possession still exists
A number of rules are also out of date - equipment wise off the top of my head - bionics, digi weapons, force weapons, psychic hoods, stormshields, and vehicles in general.
The daemonhunter's psychic powers also compare unfavorably to those of their astartes cousins.
A squad of 10 noise marines with sonic blasters, and a champ with a power weapon is the same points cost as a squad of 10 PAGK - the traitors have 50% more firepower at range and strike faster in combat, while the PAGK have better long range defenses and hit harder in combat. They are otherwise very similar.
However this noise marine squad is only one small facet of the csm list, while the GK have few options to play with.
Loss of exorcism has been balanced out by loss of infestation though.
Actually, Daemonic Infestation doesn't work at all because Sustained Attack no longer exists as a scenario rule. It didn't make the cut from 4th edition to 5th edition, and as the 5th edition FAQ states, any rules that refer or use other rules that don't exist should simply be ignored.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
