@CrusherJoe I just re-read my books, and I think I'll be making word bearers armored breakthrough to support my RG or integrate as shattered legion
imagine a spartan full of zardu and gal vorbak :D
though really the best thing about zardu is he can explicitly malefic even if he's not a libby, is ML2, and also a diabolist with master of the legion
and has the daemon rule so no extra perils, just normal perils on malefic

....yeeesh
sadly I hate the round-top pred turrets

already figured out how to make every single hellforged/deimos gun option

so statistics say the LoC with impossible robe is worth running with or without WL trait, which makes me pretty happy
not the best choice mechanically

it might have been once upon a time, before the nerfbat
the dark reaper problem is mostly a symptom and not the disease itself, the actual disease there is hit penalties
I guarntee if any tau or necron unit gets a similar ability to ignore hit modifiers that they would be taken in large numbers

you could boost the cost of DRs by 5ppm and the people spamming them wouldn't even blink
possibly even 10
simply because being able to hit is that important
the scary version is that one of the tau support systems or lower-number markerlight effects becomes 'ignores hit penalties'
then you will have the mixing of a cheese fondue that will be unrivalled
using hit penalties for anything other than flyers and very special unit effects was a mistake, armywide was the biggest mistake

I was brewing some rules for raven guard 8th ed heresy project (since the ones they had were awful garbage) and the best effect they could have done for stealth is a constant +1 save in the open that stacks in cover
or you know, make some more interesting terrain rules, and have some form of interaction with it
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 09 2018 20:34
I agree that negative modifiers to hit are the worst "feature" of 8th edition

at some point after I acquire zardu I need to wrap my head around the old daemons codex for HH use
so that my allies section can become daemon helping daemons helping more daemons
