Vendetta Rebalance

Post  Lore Weaver on Fri Apr 04, 2014 9:16 am

Hey Look, I'm a Vendetta and I'm *still* broken.

It's better... but not by much.

---
The Vendetta has gone up to 170 points, and lost half it's transport capacity, in that it can only transport up to 6 infantry (25mm) models. They can, however, still be taken in squadrons.

Also, apparently, Sly Marbo is gonezo? Take a pinch of salt with that one, until the book comes out on the 12th.

Apparently the chimera has gone up by 10 pts but vets have gone down by ten. Sobthe net effect on my projected list is 0 haha

Chimera at 65pts is still decent. Same cost as Two wave serpents. I think that's fair, side armour 10 makes it tough to march up the field though. Can't always deploy and move in a spearhead.

Also looks like veteran doctrines are going to be cheaper. Grenadiers for 15pts rather than 30. Which basically means a grenadier squad will now be 25 pts cheaper.

super pumped about the IG book. GW might actually get some of my $$$.

Multiple Primaris psykers per Slot,  and Psyker Battle squads with access to Div.

More orders you might actually use.

Cheaper Vets

Warlord trait to give shit relentless?

55 point rough riders with 2 specials? Smile

Ministorum Priests with Zealot. Zealot is fearless and Hatred (All).  makes for some cheapo Blobs that don't require an allied space marine to make worth taking.

...and taking a BS4 Lemun Russ as your HQ? heh... That is what i'm talking about! Roll a 5 or 6 on your warlord Traits and issue Orders from the hull of your russ Razz



Orders
"Take Aim": Gives the ordered unit Precision Shot
"Smite At Will": Gives the ordered unit Split Fire
"First Rank Second Rank": Ordered unit gains an additional attack with lasguns and hot-shot lasguns
"Forwards for the Emperor" After shooting, ordered unit must run even if they can't normally
"Move, Move, Move" Ordered unit must run, roll dice and use the highest.
"Suppressive Fire" Ordered unit's weapons have the pinning rule

orders for ancient officer only
1-tank & monster hunters
2-ignore covers
3-unit regroups without problems

Warlord Traits

1-d3 units of the primary detachment can outflank
2-choose 1 codex, warlord and unit have preferred enemy against units of said codex
3-friendly astra militarum units within 12" of the warlord don't have to test after 25% of deaths
4-warlord and units have relentless
5-warlord have "voice of command" (the rule to give orders), if he already does he can use them to units within 18"
6-warlord have "voice of command" (the rule to give orders), if he already does he can use 1 additional order

Medusa, griffin and Colossus are gone, unless you play IA.

The Hydra variant apparently is better anyways.

The vendetta is balanced better.... But it's still an obvs top 3 flyer. It, the drake, and the scythes could stand an extra 30-50 pts ea.
