Forgeworld put out the new Imperial Armor Apocalypse (2nd Edition) book last month. Tell me what you think of these units:
First of all, all these units have that top logo on them:
Now I’m going to have way more to say on this in a few days, as I’m poring over the book now, but lets start off with something easy. Take a look at these units and tell me if you think any of them are totally unbalancing, or would break the game in standard (non apocolypse) play:
SM Contemptor Dreads (Standard, Blood Angel, Space Wolves, Mortis)
SM Siege Dread
SM Land Raider Achilles
SM Caestus Assault Ram
SM Lucius Dread Droppod
Valkyrie Sky Talon Transport
Grot Bomm Launcha
Remora Drone Fighter
Chaos Contemptor Dread
Spined Chaos Beast
Now you have to have the Forgeworld book to dig deep into these, but think about those entries from a couple of viewpoints and discuss:
1) Are any of these totally broken and would unbalance the game? Remember to take the FOC and point costs into account.
2) See any interesting trends on who gets things and who doesn’t?
~I’ll be talking more on this one soon. Have fun.
