My thoughts:

What a bloodbath! Fun game aganst Norto that i really enjoyed!

Didn't get to try the Annihilators out much since they spent most of the game broken.
Had 2 formations in devastators in land raiders which made them feel very durable. The reinforced armour helped me save hita in 1 engagment and i even started with my guys on the blitz mounted in their transports!
The formation gives marines some good fire power and will probably be well used in foot slogging marine lists.

Can't say much about the eldar changes. The farseer got killedfirst turn and couldn't summon the Avatar. The other formation didn't get broken before they summoned him.

Haven't faced that many Eldar SHT:s before so can't really say how the proposed stats impacted the game. They killed alot of things though!

Shining spears never made it into CC so we didn't get to see how the loss of their extra attck was either. But 2 less 4+ attacks wil lsurely matter sometimes.

I'll let Norto give his thoughts.

Thanks for the report. I'll be honest I thought that the Eldar had over stretched themselves in the first turn, but they managed to hold on.

My first time so Im definitely not a pro using them. Did feel like i was getting smashed but seemed to always have enough to push through.

Voids activated 2 or 3 times over the 4 turns so I can't really comment on the point increase, spears didn't see CC. Its going to be hard to find a situation where a career is broken at an optimum time to double for summon, have been on the receiving end before of it and it's a little on the crap side. Cobra went nuts and rolled a 6 to damage shooting a warhound. So I don't think it changes the outcome either way for the different stats.
