I figure at this point GK can’t get any further down the good list so I’m good- people can come join me at the bottom!

@tekton Deathwatch are currently below you, and would like a hand out of the road under the dumpster if you'd be so kind

Since they have a new codex soon-ish I had forgotten about them and Knights being down here with me

seriously, I just want functional kill-teams
like not costing as much as a 10-man tac squad for 5 wounds worth of medium load-out
even if they're not the best, unlike my RG I would run them for the character because I enjoy the flexibility
and the range of modeling/painting options
but right now, a "standard" vet squad, with combiplas, costs 170pts for 5

Wow

fun fact: space marine veterans (as in the command squad) are cheaper at 155 for 5 with full combiplas
and can be made even cheaper by just taking straight plasma
a team with three frag cannons and two stormshields is 195
that's more than a fire prism
or a quadlas predator

@WindstormSCR My Chaos (a.k.a. Traitor) Knights aren't amused that it looks like the Imperials are yet again getting the cool stuff with the armigers....
And they're annoyed that you can't take the Daemon Knights that you could in 7e

the daemon knights were a fw thing
they'll come back whenever FW gets around to doing the chaos book
at the rate things are going FW will have to do a second round of indexes just to incorporate a bunch of the changes from codexes

Yeah ... it was a cool item that meant that one could run an entire force with the DAEMON keyword ...

I think it'd be cool if the IK codex had daemon/chaos knights
as one of the households

@tekton I was poking at some stuff and realized that purifiers and strikes are cheaper than DW vets with stormbolter/sword :P

i've somehow lost my Tau index (physical copy)- the cards are on my desk, but the book has vanished like a stealth suit

@OftKilted I actually play at home since I have two tables here, or at my friends where we have three tables. Wasn’t there on Saturday, and not here today. It’s sneaky like that apparently...
