Just for kind of argument sakes on the whole apothecary not being a leader thing: lore wise apothecaries have been known to step up and lead the chapter in the event that someone else isn’t there so really it’s not too far-fetched to think that if they had more experience than say a captain they would have a special ability. More so than some giant hills have eyes dude with a sign in my opinion. Not saying they shouldn’t have it though!

I love when they add *gasp* tactical stuff like crossfire into the game. So much better than things like Admech where they just get additional abilities because reasons.

Lots of chatter out there on the internet today saying that Crossfire is too complicated, but personally I love it. Not only do I like the effect and the fluff and all, but I like that it’s kinda the point. I appreciate having some variety in the available factions’ skill floors and ceilings.

Can you two do all the future faction focus vids please… perfect mix of analysis and banter 👌

I’m sure Lawrence will want to jump in on the upcoming eldar release though but always enjoy hearing his insights!

Thrilled you put this video out. Things are pretty grim and dark here in Onterrible, so this was doubly appreciated.

Wtf. So just like we’re the only army used to not have our traits effect vehicles we’re now the only army who can’t give warlord traits to elite characters, so abominant. Wtf gw

In practice it’s super easy, it’s not that difficult
Hit a target with X
Check if a line goes over enemy unit between your units
Get bonuses
Sadly it has to written the way it is for the Rules Lawyers. Back in the halcyon days of 3rd through to early 5th you’d never have had it, cos people weren’t actively trying to break the game as much as now
