yes and no
they can't get any runes of battle, so just guide
and the main issue they have is they're overcosted like a knight +20%
example: knight warden gets a decent gun and keeps the chainsword, for ~430ish
a WK with suncannon which doesn't have a static shot number and is the same aside from slightly higher AP, costs over 100pts more
a double wraithcannon WK loses its invuln entirely, and still costs 60-70 points more than an errant

I don't want to see a return to "Wraithknight and bike extravaganza" but at the same time I'd like to not feel like I'm kneecapping myself to take one

until GK get a better shake on the game I'll probably switch (back) to Tau
My current Imperium list is making people angry with 3 Dawneagle Shield Captains, Celestine, Greyfax, Rex, an Assassin and AdMech littered about the battlefield

Feb 24 2018 04:31
yup!
there's a lot of chaos and psyker armies in the people i play- so you'd think the GK would do ok, but no...so I switched over last week and went 5-0; picked up two more dragoons to augment and try some other things this next week

welp
not bothering with THAT
NZD 65. which equates to $35
so I can have a meh character model, or a major component of my scions list.... :thinking:

I just don't have a massive budget
It doesn't look like he's limited time at least
so if I can squeeze him in another time that might be worth it

I've snaffled an Eisenhorn model just cos... prolly never use it
Was looking at the model as someone built it yesterday, finecast, not a great looking model tbh

They’re not fincast, it’s a different resin
They’re just still injection-molding instead of doing vacupour

Her certainly seems very finecast-y, but also a lot like the Crusaders too
The journal they’re selling today is actually really nice, almost relatively nicer than said new mini...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 24 2018 20:08
journal?
ah, found it
curious
as much as I like that type of journal, I prefer my acid-free paper ones with plain black cover and unruled for 1/3 of that price :P

Righto, yeah, I don't really get those kinda things

Perhaps I should!!

I still have some moleskin notebooks, graph, I bought about 18 years ago...best investment I made that year lol
I use them for notes during battles from deployment on out, but usually not my nice ones ;)
Sometimes on turn 4 it helps me remember why my guys are where they are
