    Some, but not a ton. It’s a really well balanced book – nothing is totally over the top or criminally undercosted, but there’s a lot of really great combos. Very fun and flavorful!

      I agree, it’s right up to the edge of the power curve but doesn’t step over it. I really enjoy playing mine.

    That’s sad to Grey Knights no were in that list for the past 4 weeks. GW really should on the ball to make them playable again. Maybe give them all Primaris Psykers.

      They certainly do need a boost of some sort.
