          lol you know what? Not a bad idea. We could sell them and have the proceeds go to the children’s hospital charity.

    A few years ago I would have gone CRAZY for Star Wars legion, but “the Last Jedi” movie completely eroded away my affection for the Star Wars universe.

    Sticking with 40k – the Superior setting, even with all it’s crazy goofiness lol

      Yeah, 40k is meant to be a minis game first. Legion is cool but certainly not going to dethrone 40k IMO.

    Wow, gw is terrible at pricing hybrid and big units. 227 for the mini-knight? Really? Do they hate making money?

    • rvd1ofakind March 17, 2018 1:56 am #

      It’s like they don’t understand how hybrid units work.
      Most of the time it’ll either shoot or punch. Not both. However they’re priced as if they do both every damn turn. And since they’re hybrids, they are not great at shooting and not great at melee.

      The worst examples of this are the hybrid units with Heavy weapons. You want them in combat… But if you move to get in combat, your BS goes to crap. So you either stand and shoot (where you could just as easily get a dedicated shooting unit to do the job better) or you try to move and shoot in order to get into melee (which is how you should use them) and once you’re in melee(which you’re only OK at), you can’t shoot anyway.

      They should just be priced at the better gun’s value + 5/10% points or the worse gun. Not +50/100% like they are now.

      Looking at you, soul grinder and skull cannon
