I make it seem like there are several morale checks note that there is only one test per shooting phase but that is good as one unit can cause some wounds and the phariahs can then shoot at the unit that has not meet the requirements to force morale sorry for the confusion.

Alright, Ckok, since nobody has stepped up to the plate, I'll say four things:
Firstly, it's Pariahs, not Phariahs (unless GW has released a new unit). The fact that you consistently misspell the mere name of the unit suggest that you aren't as knowledgeable about the unit as everyone else on the forum who spells their name correctly, so it's hard to take your advice seriously when it sounds like you don't even know what you're talking about.
Secondly, please be aware of proper grammar, punctuation and spelling. I'll give you an examples:Originally Posted by CkokThere are more changes I'd like to make, but you get the point. When you type clearly, believe it or not, people have more respect for what you say.Originally Posted by Correct
Third, everyone knew this already. Pariahs have been discussed over and over, so ask yourself, what new are you bringing to the table that everybody doesn't already know? Tactics, strategems, pros and cons have all been discussed in full, and people have been combing over Pariahs to find a strong way of using them.
Fourth, this entire Tactica was more or less an opinion rather than a Tactica. You like playing an army that takes advantage of special rules, and as such the Deceiver and Pariahs are great for you, but telling us to use them in only one way is, frankly, quite silly. Every unit in every army has tons of uses, and it's entirely up to the general to decide how to use it. A Tactica is meant to suggest a variety of ways to make a single unit successful, or to inform people of an effective style of army list (for example, the Tyranid "Godzilla" list), or to simply inform people of an army's strengths and weaknesses of each individual unit. In the future, try to be objective about the article, identify strengths and weaknesses without getting your opinions involved. Try to avoid saying "I think" and "I like" and instead say "This ability lets the unit blah blah blah". Just trying to help.
Glad people are still trying to make the Pariah viable though.

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.
Thank you so much I made this while at work off of memory I will make some changes and take all of your recommandations and make it easier to understand. Thanks ilonginus
I'm gonna say you have a decent start here. However I believe you have a little more thinking to do and should go over some more in-depth observation. Thinking outside the box a bit.
Examine how the unit would fare against multiple sorts of units, instead of just throwing a couple odd statisics based advantages out there. Not everyone believes in mathhammer (myself for example).
Also as horribly tempting as it is, keep the witty quips to a minimum. Trust me I had a hell of a time not making a wisecrack every third line on my TS tactica.
Also consider several ways to effectively use the unit. I.E. flayed ones can be used as counter-chargers, infiltrating assassination squads, front-line shock assault troops to your phalanx, an escort to a combat footlord or C'tan, or even with a contingent of Pariahs to go double-duty on fear abilities. And I'm sure I missed a couple.
So maybe put some more thought into your tactica, and REALLY grind over the effects of Pariahs in 5th ed and all the options they have available.

Summer finals and a 20pg report is taking up most of my time, I made the original thinking you guys were expressives but you guys are analyticals so I am changing it. It will hopefully be up by friday I will most likely start a new thread.
