30th anniversary marine

Post  the bushels on Sat Apr 16, 2016 5:38 pm

So picked this guy up today, anyone who hasn't seen the rules he comes with needs to check this out.
Standard marine stat line, but has a disintegration pistol, cce, and combi disintegration gun that can shoot the disintegration gun every turn. The gun is 18" range, s5 ap2 rapid fire gets hot instant death.
And he can be taken in place of a regular marine for free. Badass.

Ha.. the figure's been online everywhere, but I never realized it came with rules. 

Who's gonna wanna play against that guy.. str 5 ap 2 rapid fire instant death.. for free? Thats pretty ridiculous.

it's only one guy though, with a weaker plasma gun that gained Instant Death.  given people's penchant for wanting you to field something with the rules handy/official model, just ask the player to field the actual model and have the dataslate handy for the game.  for such a situational gun, and the fact they had to pay $35 for it, it's hardly worth worrying over.

He can hide in a big squad.. not be targeted and take out a bloodthirster in one shot, but not a big deal. I just cant figure out why theyd make his gun instant death? Why not just str 5 ap 2 since hes.. free!

He might die every once in awhile, but with a str 5 ap 2  .. he will definitely insta gib some stuff, thats a gurantee. 

But we know why they did.. 35 for the model, limited edition, and people will be selling it on ebay next month for double.

The den had a couple left on the shelf when I was there this morning. Its also a unique model, so only 1 allowed in an army. He seems a lil bit overpowered as a free upgrade, but compared to eldar D cheese, 1 guy with an instant death gun doesn't scream broken to me.

I'm not honestly worried about this model. I would nix anyone wanting to run the rules without the fig, (unless they've got a nice conversion) and theres a lot of ID weapons out there, a rapid fire gun on a bs4 model isn't making me too worried.

Im just really against having to buy a model to get the rules.. its a gripe against GW, not against anyone playing him.

Better than buying the model AND codex to get the rules though isn't it?

I know I'm a bit of a smart ass sometimes.

I just wish that GW had more wisdom and made 2 or more models. Sure make the Space Marine, but why not the first Chaos, human and Xenos. You could reasonably cover most every army. Make some money and have something cool for everyone. Instead of everyone having SMurf envy. If they took out the instant death part of the guns, most of the complaining would stop. Oh well he's now my Beaky Jr who will be the body guard for the 2011 Beaky Sr. Have a great week.

I'll be interested to see how many tournaments we see this instant-death legionnaire at, and what impact he has.

If itc finds it overpowered, making a single free upgrade model illegal for tournament play would be... Well child's-play, no pun intended.

I've been mulling over "old hammer", I don't want to force anyone to play 40k in a way they don't enjoy, but some sort of league reward system throughout our upcoming campaign for using oldhammer, or "balanced" rules might be a thought.

I dig the oldhammer as well. Also got my first game in with the insta death marine against paz's iron hands. Killed one tactical marine and insta killed an eversor, then got stuck in cc with a sergeant for the rest of the game. Made an impact, but not super game changing results.

That disintegrator gun is so broken...

Lol not really. I ignored him, and paid the cost. It's still just a marine, no invul.

Now those new space marine psychic powers! Taking control of my razorback to blast the kheres assault cannon off my contemptor was the first real upset of that game.
