Many SM players loved the new codex when it came out. I was no exception. But then I switched to the Tau, and my brother used the SM. He was so glued to the power that he wouldn't play without it. Unfotunately, My 4+ saves and 4+ shield saves only work 1/2 the time (makes sense...) and if he has veil of time, my saves fail almost all the time. Is a power that lets the SM player reroll virtually anything important (except vehicle AP and effects) too powerful?
I think this should be in another forum, but...
In short, no. There are ways of beating that, especially since you know he's going to take it every single time. And compare it to other armies' similar psychic powers. ie- Eldar farseers have access to both fortune and guide- which allows a whole squad to reroll shooting or saves for the same price for one power and cheaper for the other.
Just imagine if the power carried on to whatever unit the Librarian was leading.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
Also, remember that Veil of Time doesn't allow the Marine player to re-roll your saves, only those saves that the Librarian himself makes. A librarian with veil of time is still a mostrous beatstick whom you should expect to crush any amount of tau units he gets into melee with, but at least he's not as bad as you seem to be making him out to be. Just don't let him get into melee--which is the Tau response to just about everything the marines field.
