IMHO 2 and 3 are not viable. 1 is perfectly reasonable

While there is potential for gameyness, in my experience it is rarer than you might think or expect. The same is true of the other ‘gamey’ aspects like clipping or pinning part of a formation through the countercharging rules. the elephant in the room is that players like the gameyness of these rul...

you don't need LOS to the unit that breaks though

the rule is clear enough I guess but it doesn't follow its own design notes where it says "these Blast markers represent the detrimental effect on morale of seeing friends defeated in an assault." because the rule doesn't require the supporting unit to have any LOS to the defeated target u...

they are talking about planet falling formations of skimmers with a transport capacity. pods are not relevant other than to say it would be less time consuming if such formations of skimmers had a rule that allowed them to scatter once like pods and not individually by unit as the rules require. Suc...

It will be interesting to see whether any new players come across this way - given that EUK tourny player details are in the public domain - it will be known in time. I'm doubtful though because E:A is better (i.e. more enjoyable, strategic and competetive) played with combined arms and at least 10 ...

In 40k didn't they ditch saving throw modifiers in 3rd edition only to bring them back in 8th edition? I think there's a lot to be said for one saving throw with weapon specific modifiers (i.e. like back in 2nd edition epic) versus the all or nothing approach of MW/TK and frequent double and occasio...

I think it could be that the core issue is the gulf between a naked 4+ (or 5+RA which is simlar) which is moderate armour and 4+RA which is hard as nails. Adam77's graph suggests there are steps spanning that gulf but a naked 3+ is often perceived as a problem due to the all or nothing nature of MW ...

In my mind there are all sorts of "no-impact" changes you could theoretically make to the rules to add granularity e.g. variable inv save (4+,5+,6+), variable fearless (weaker variants where you get a save from hackdowns etc), variable ignore cover (weaker versions that modify rather than ...

that was actually the main purpose of starting the thread, to discuss where unit RA changes were desired so that the likely effect could be assessed. I know some people have named units previously or on other threads but thought it might be worth discussing this further in one place, whilst acknowle...

I think intuitively it feels more appropriate to have the RA(x) as the save available for MW. Thats because it feels like that is the "saving" throw you get when your armour is defeated by the MW. As written its a bit of an issue because you cannot give e.g. a 4+ unit a little bit more sur...

I’d have to say they take the RA save, not the standard one. I also think it would be a reasonable convention that the RA save can’t be better than the standard save. Based on existing (GW?) wording you cannot reroll failed save against MW therefore you would get your normal armour save rather than...

yes all you have to do is just add the two sentences in green in the OP to the RA rule and its done. The fundamental issue is who has authority to do such a thing.

however, as stated in the OP i was curious how people would use this power were it granted. e.g. land raiders becoming 3+/4+

some really good points. like ginger said, for me inv should be reserved mainly for characters, daemons etc. and stay at 6+ And thats because otherwise i fear we'll get "marines characters deserve inv 5+ because they're the best" leading to "eldar are the most advanced so of course fa...

I was browsing again this thread http://www.taccmd.tacticalwargames.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=32500 wondering whether there were any rule changes where there appeared to be consensus that it is a problem and consensus in what the solution should be. The only item that I thought might qualify was t...
