Bring forth the nerfing of GK: AP values of close combat weapons/Terminators will be king
If you have been around awhile remember back in 4th when everyone had mechdar since they were the best army? Or a little earlier with 3.5 Chaos? Remember how they translated to 5th edition? Kind of crap right?
Well when editions change old armies tend to not work as well. They were far to refined to play in a specific parameter of rules so when things change they aren't as efficient....and well they tend to suck. We know get word of ap values for CCW's which is in itself a good thing. Yet with Power weapons being now only AP3 who does this hurt the most?
Well non-terminator GK armies in a big way which tended to rely on purifiers and death cult assasins to be way too over the top in assault. Yet now being AP3 they will suck against terminators as they will get thier saves. Do I dare say this actually makes lightning claw terminators far superior to Thunder hammer/storm shields. With chainfists and powerfists being AP1 and AP2 as well as being the only viable CCW to kill 2+ save models Terminators with power weapons will be the cats tuxedo....so I would state that GK terminator builds become very powerful while normal marine codices will need to stick to lightning claws more often.
Honestly should we complain that GK get less powerful? I am starting to get happy about purchasing 30 assault terminators, against my better judgement not to buy anything in 2012 till 6th drops.
With other rules to assault pointing to assaults off the deepstrike, and consolidating into assault will terminator armies return as kings? Things are starting to point more and more to that direction....Yet it is possible 3 months from now we laugh at all these silly rumor notions, and those that complained about the rumors will stop whining....yet will everyone ever stop complaining about any change? I am excited for 6th.....
Remember my bet, Friday the 13th of July 6th will drop
