if u would realy like a list that is soooo good that it can compete with the deamons and dark elfs? Or do u whant a new army that fitts in with the 8'th ed books. (beastmen/orcs&gobs/TK/OK).
Well, despite what the internet says, in my experience the 8th ed books are much better written than the last edition and they are more than capable of wiping the floor with DoC, DEs etc. The new books have so many more options, can partake in every phase and they are fun to use. The 'power armies' are basically all one trick ponies - I kick their asses with my (6th ed!) Dwarfs regularly (also a one trick pony, its just that my one trick is better than theirs ;P).
What I want is a CD army list that is well written and keeps me tinkering with it, not a list where I know what works and what doesn't after 1 game.
The big achievement of the 8th ed books is that they do that - there are no auto-pick choices in OnGs, TKs or OKs, everything
in the list is viable. Thats' what I want. The LoA units basically fall into 3 categories: Amazing, Rubbish and Compulsory, and there is virtually no debate about which ones are in which category (though there is some overlap).
New gigant rocks!! the one thing the old gigant needed was a armour save, and gues what? he got a 3+ from shooting! No more 10man skink unit blowdarting it to hell
And that's fine. The problem is that for a few points more you get a Destroyer who is so much better its absurd. My argument is not with the unit choices or the coolness, its the internal balance and lack of playtesting. LoA isn't a better book than the 7th ed ones, it has exactly the same problems - some units are obviously better than others. This doesn't mean I'm not going to spend days poring over the Tamurkhan book though, because I will - the fluff and epicness of it is wonderful :)
Will u lose against top tier armys? Maby u will.
I actually doubt it. There are some pretty ridiculous things you could do with this army list. A list with 3 lv1s on Death/Fire, BSB, 600pts of IG, 2 Magma Cannons, 2 Deathshriekers, Hellcannon, 6 Fireborn and a Destroyer will deal with most VCs and DoCs builds, and DEs too; if you play RAW, Repeater Crossbowmen, DE Spearmen, Corsairs and Black Guard can't even harm the Destroyer without Withering or Mindrazor going off successfully (and even then its still 3s to wound at best and it has a 4+ ward), and its powerful enough to take on both Hydras at once - now that's
broken :o. Its not a weak army at all, its just badly written.
A couple of years from now, if we produce a sensible and thoroughly playtested list of changes we feel are appropriate I'm sure they would consider publishing an updated list in pdf form.
I really hope so. I wish they had come to us for playtesting, we would have happily done it for free. :(
