House Rules’ are tricky. Are we at a place in the game where we need a few to keep the competitive fires stoked? We tackle a little bit about that question on this show. We also talk about how Paul was wrong about a Space Marine flyer.
Space Marines will continue to climb the tournament rankings with their new supplements. We’ve spent a lot of time talking about Iron Hands but this is only the beginning as generals out there really drive in to the subtleties of the other supplements.
I believe I was completely wrong about the Stormhawk interceptor and you can even make a case for things like the Storm Eagle and Fire Raptor still. Those things were a little underpowered for their points a few weeks ago but with the addition of the new Space Marine rules – maybe not.
The ITC has issued some House Rules for their upcoming tournaments that disallow the use of ‘wobbly model’ for Vehicles with the Fly keyword. You have to be able to completely place the model with NO overhang of it’s footprint (model or the base depending on what you use to measure in the game) on the level it is trying to sit on. Wobbly Model was been abused to the point of obscenity – not because it doesn’t make sense that a model could fly over the spot but because it prevents interaction of other models in the game. Is that the intent? I don’t think so. This house rule helps address that but is it a bridge too far?
