    really they should have made commissars allow no more than d6 wounds from morale checks

    • YetAnotherFacelessMan

      So long as you’ve only lost 7 models in a single turn, Commissars have a better version of that. For everything except conscript squads and combined infantry squads, losing 8 or more models in a single turn is basically a ruined unit anyways, so we’re really only talking about conscripts from this point forward.

      Leadership was supposed to be the weakness of conscripts, but it was a weakness with a REALLY easy workaround. I like this update.

      Another fun thing about this update is that it cements even further the Valhallans as the best conscripts. The Valhallan relic pistol allows a “commander chenkov” to run with one or two units of conscripts, give both of them the old version of Summary Execution, and also issue FRFSRF half the time.

      @Aaron: No, I they shouldn’t. Conscripts now aren’t the most reliable and unbreakable screen ever. They were far better than any other infantry in the game for 3 points.

        Do you play this game? Synapse creatures are more reliable and unbreakable. They can be made so by characters than are tougher then Commissars, with three times as many wounds.

    Lol… “Big” news for Warmachine. That’s never happened. Ever.
