well, current rumorset basically decided things for me
I own no primaris, so if DW is "old marines are shit, primaris is the hotness" then it might as well be dead to me
so a falcon tomorrow, and then decisions about other things

@WindstormSCR that kit was more fun to work with than I expected it would be...

which, the falcon or primaris?
the Eldar grav tanks are actually really well designed, and not hard at all

Falcon/Serpent/Prism kit
Primaries are a mixed bag for me on decent vs awful- some people really like them, the arms and placement made me go “eh”

I'm just sad the hornet is bad with anything other than shuriken cannon
I might do a warp hunter just because
everyone is terrified of distort weapons, so if nothing else it'll be a good distraction

@tekton shocking isn't it. I want the hornet to be good because pulse lasers are actually pretty damn good
but with the HPL only being str 6 it kind of just becomes nothing but a more reliable (much more expensive) starcannon :(

"Lightning Assault
On any turn in which this model Advances, your opponent must subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target this model in the Shooting phase."
this is the problem
and why the hornet is ass with anything except shuricannons
