ok, this makes a little more sense.....

Don't like Daemons and CSM not being battle brothers. Just wrong.

I do like the differences based off the "home" army (Tau/SM are battle brothers, but SM/Tau are 2nd tier)

Geeeeez Mike, it's like you've got something on your mind that's coming up soon.

Do they have Warhammer in Wadena?

I dont like the battle brothers rules. TBH.

There are just too many units that just scream for the love of a sanguinary priest. 3 of them in fact. and a libby, and a unit of scouts.

I could handle BB if its the "Home" army granting its stuff to the "Allied" army and not the other way around....

Vulkan+Thundernators+Sang Priest in a Deep Striking LR?

*shrugs* It's gonna be part of the game, so I guess we all have to adapt.

I rather like how my armies are going to be with the Allies tho

Space Marines->Grey Knight or Guard
CSM->Daemons or Guard
and Orksies for fun.

The Allies rules will make it easy to transitiion to a new army too.

PS: 1000 posts, woo hoo!!

Oh, i'm down for allies, i think it adds another dimension to List building, and I'll be able to use the daemons i own, as well as opens up options for increasing the collection.

However, i don't like either Blood brothers, or grudging allies rules.
Why not just give a list of possible allies and treat them as a second, separate list on the table? BB is prone to abuses, and GA penalizes players based on Fluff . both of which are not healthy for the game.

Mike: Agree to both your points.

I like the new rules and it should be fun, but I'd have rather they went in the direction of a "tight" ruleset.

i think the overall effect is neat. it gives room for more narrative games; immagine if we have 2 guys playing and they both bring bregrudging allies and rool poor on both so they just sit there and your both stuck going "oh crap...". that could be a fun amusing game.

and sang priests sound like theyre getting nerfed mike; some of that stuff says its dropping to a 5+. so now you're in a 33% instead of 50% FNP save.

It's still amazing for the points... Almost a requirement in fact. We'll see how it plays. The concept of having shooty 'crons backed up by an Ork Warboss in Mega Armour and a Nobz Squad in a Battlewagon.... Beefy.
