Ok, so onto non-existent issue number 3.
So issue 3 is people and their lack of knowledge of the rules and units, this was also touched upon in my first rant-icle on the FW backwardness down here in oz.
Another cry is about people’s lack of knowledge of certain armies/units within the Forge World books. I won’t lie, there is a large and flavorfulvariety of units and characters within the Imperial Armour line. But as said before, this is the exact same as core.
I take myself as a relatively competitive gamer when it comes to our fine hobby, but at the same time I couldn’t tell you the ins and outs of every single unit within every single ‘core’ codex. At a tournament, I would, like a normal human being, ask my opponent what odd or exciting rules his army has.
This could be A Deff Mob from Imperial Armour or the new Daemons, I have NFI. I know this sounds odd to the humble nerd, but actually trusting in your opponent and letting him tell you the rules to his army I find is generally acceptable (there will be a douchebag that ‘forgets’ a rule until it helps him, this happened against Grey Knights, a core-dex, so go figure).
|I have the same knowledge on both of them, sweet FA..|
Either way I could keep circling this issue and sprouting the same things over and over again but I covered it pretty well in the first article under concerns on availability. So in a nut shell, if you’re desperate you’ll find ways of sourcing the rules, just the same way you’d source core-dexs. If you don’t care one way or the other, then a giant High-Fucking-Five to you good sir/madam.
Will continue shortly with issue 4, the OP'ed-ness of the unknown...
