I know theres already a thread regarding 5th edition tactics, but I just thought I'd ask this seperately, since it seems to be barely discussed in that thread: what changes are you doing to your typical lists in light of the new rules?
Personally, the only change I'm doing is adding more troops. Before this I only ran 4 troops (tops) which included two "sniper" squads that almost never moved. Now that troops are required for objective capturing, I'm probably going to add a Raider squad (maybe two) just to increase my ability to capture objectives.
So, again, what have you guys done to your army lists for 5th ed.?
I have started to use a WWP list because I found TLOS was literally army crippling for what I ran in 4th. So far it has paid off (8 games with 6 wins).
As a whole i'm using less warrior/raider squads but the squads are much larger (like I run a 16 strong warrior squad and a 10 strong raider squad for WWP delivery). Other than that nothing has really changed.
IMO we'll see less wych heavy lists and more lists utilising the awesome power of supporting warriors.
