What squad size will reign supreme in 8th? The Massive Blobs or will MSU be king?
Games Workshop has just dropped the teaser for how characters will function in 8th. Plus, we’ve seen how Large Models, Infantry and wounding will work now as well. These changes have a pretty big impact on the game as is but it also has us wondering how to build our squads now: MSU vs Blobs
Now before we go to far, let’s define our terms so we can all be on the same page with this one.
MSU – Many/Multiple Small Units. Think tons of combat squad style marine lists or tons of minimum sized units
Blob Squads – Max unit sizes, could include upgrades or not. Think tons of bodies on the table in huge units (Ork Mobs, Guant Hordes, Guard Blobs).
Quick Note – Yes, I know not all armies have the option to do both and some squad sizes teeter that line (10-man Tac squads, where do they fit, for example). But let’s not split hairs here, we’re talking in broad strokes, okay?
There are probably a dozen more pros and cons for each. Personally, I think it’s going to ultimately come down to the army and the player. It’s still really early to tell which direction the Meta is going to push it. I’m leaning more towards Blobs for my Nids but I’m not sure how I’d run marines yet. Time will tell!
Which play style do you prefer and which one do you think will end up winning out? What other Pros/Cons do you think will impact the outcome?
