once again rumors from GW. i was given info on the new expansion and given a basic overview along with some examples on how it works. i was told that armies are as large as you want, no force organization charts, no points, NO LIMITS (thus the baneblade) what happens is you look at your force and then look at you opponents, together you decide which is stronger, whomevers is weaker is allowed a set number of special abilities. i was given some examples.
you have 7 basilisks. :shifty:
(GW staff member rolls scatter + die) the first scatters away, ignore that 6 to go
(rolls for second) the second is a direct hit, you can now place the remaining 5 around this hit without rolling :w00t:
that was the first example
not really an example.
certain units work in teams i was given the example of two whirlwinds and a landspeeder, the whirlwinds do not have to roll to hit a target as long as its within line of site of the landspeeder, it spots for them. :cry:
there is no retreat only death or glory.......
Fear the wrath of the ANZAC clan
I am not averse to facing the enemy myself. Why should i be? in my right hand i hold the finest regiment of soldiers from a world of soldiers. in my left hand i hold the will and favour of the divine Emperor of Mankind.
The Landspeeder and Whirlwind bit isn't anything new, I want to see what non-SM players get in that regard. No pt. limit or chart? That's kinda ridiculous, since I'll be playing out the Seven Samurai. Which is, seven Deamon Princes tooled up to own the opposition. I doubt the seven basilisks will give me trouble if I'm in H2H by turn two...
I agree this sounds a little far fetched seeing as how ubalanced some armies are already let alone without and organization chart.
I reject your reality and substitute me own!
The FOC won't be used but units limits will still most likely stay, besides 7 deamon princes will hardly be overpowered with the new chaos codex.
which will have a hard time facing like 7 grandmasters of the GK, besides going that road is simply lame, apocalypse is ment to be played with 3000 or more points, 7 deamon princes won't get you that far, especially with the new codex.
Daemonhunters are very nearly the worst anti-daemon/anti-chaos army that exists.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

That's where your wrong, in apocalypse you can as point values aren't an issue, also do remember than the uber cc deamonprinces will be gone before apocalypse is released.
this new campaign just sounds silly, I'm all for encouraging bigger games and such but getting rid of the FoC is just plain idiotic and pointless, completely kills the idea of playing for the fun and awesome cypher kills moments...

People should also be forced to make a certain percentage of their army troops in any case, so as to avoid ridiculous situations like those mentioned above.
