    During the GW live reveal on Twtich over the weekend, there were people in the chat commenting on WarCry about how they liked it better when it just featured these new, isolated warbands instead of porting every army over from AoS. I kind of agree with that sentiment, especially since the rules for the AoS armies are WAAAAAAY stronger than the unique-to-WarCry warbands. A Skaven Rat Ogre, for example, beats the absolute snot out of anything from the WarCry warbands; most of the warbands can’t even score a wound on the Stormcast Eternals; Iron Jaws cost the same points as every warband scrub, yet can outmaneuver and out-fight them. I wish the game were just the non-army warbands in the Varanspire/Allpoints fighting Mad Max style.

    As to people’s whining about the 1st turn in 40k: it’s user error more than it is the rules. The game is faster and more close quarters than ever before, and there’s more terrain than ever before. It is said a lot, but bears repeating: set up terrain properly! If you set up in a grid parallel to the table edges, you are creating too many firing lanes; set it up diagonally. I know it hurts the brains of the self-diagnosed OCD gamers out there, but that’s how it’s meant to be played. Also, build a list and deploy expecting to go second. That way your models are generally safer and can be in position to counter-punch and/or retake objectives. I choose to go second 2/3 of my games and almost always win them. Nick Nanavati does the same thing.

    It also stands to reason that a lot of people are still building their lists with an 8th edition mindset, where firepower output is all they are focused on. Either to castle up and hope to shoot the enemy off the board turn one, or to charge at the enemy as fast as possible in the hopes of closing in before getting shot. All you do in both cases is leave yourself vulnerable to counter tactics and losing the objective game.
