What the hell Games Workshop!? It’s like I’m writing to myself over here.
Have you seen it? HAVE YOU SEEN IT!? The END of Space Marines as we know it. Here I am, asking to raise awareness for the Emperor’s Chosen’s matched play needs, and in walks Gee DUMBelu to save the day.
“Moving forwards, many of the most powerful aura abilities will only affect Core units from a Character’s (sub-)faction. This represents a more realistic form of in-situ command, with Characters acting like they’re supposed to from a narrative perspective. After all, a Space Marine Captain should be issuing orders and inspiring units of his battle-brothers on the front line, not babysitting a squadron of Repulsor Executioners at the back of the battlefield!” – Warhammer-Community
Now I know what Padme felt when she told Anakin he was breaking her heart. YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE! It was said that you would bring balance to the game, not leave it in darkness. I need my Marines to be the best. What, do officers not issue orders to tanks anymore? Do you expect me to believe that the Codex Astartes believes that only certain Angels of Death need to be directed by their chain of command!?
Sure, all armies will likely be affected by the new core units approach in future codexes, but most non-Astartes auras were shit or didn’t even exist. It really is only the Marines that suffer. This kind of targeting is so disgustingly blatant I’ve got half a mind to light my Ultramarines on fire.
THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT SALTYJOHN! I don’t know how, but it is.
Thanks 9th edition, it’s been fun. Looks like it is back to Age of Sigmar for me.
