Yes I know, a lot of them will have BS forge world models or armies. Because when in doubt, pay for the most OP thing.

It's not that bad. 4 or five will have forge world.

Yup. Probably the top 5 or so. Lol.

Look, there is no way to oversell the impact of Forge World. I love the Tau players who say the Y'Vhara suit "isn't that bad" or the guy with the Tau'Nar suit that claims its balanced because {fill in the BS}.

Sure. My mantra from way back in the day still holds true: "If it has stats, you can kill it". It's true but that was never the point. :roll:

Oh really,I watched 2 models jump a far distance over terrain to my guys(That I couldnt see at all on my first turn mind you) I lost 10 custodes, a land raider, a dreadnaught and a bunch of marines that came out to 1350 points in turn one by 2 models, mostly from one. each weapon doing 12+ attacks -3(I think it was -4) ap, 3dmg a piece for there point cost is ridicules, its not balanced at all with GW models. My custodes are super hard to take down at t5, 3W, 3+ invuln, and I was tabled by the end of his second turn. Soooo "not that bad" would make sense and people didn't purposely pick the most broken thing they could take to a fight from forgeworld. I mean if thats not pay to win, then what is it? xD, not even unorthodox has tabled me that quick against my custodes

I've never minded fighting forgeworld when people take other stuff, its the broken FW stuff people generally bring to a fight. Though to be fairish, 7th edition was all about ap1/2 and super heavies. Not quite sure why forgeworld is so bad at balancing tho. xD

So unorthodox will not be attending tomorrow, he has important family stuff going on, so I shall drive us to glory, but I need to know some information.

Who all is going? How many are attending and hoping to carpool will dictate which car I am bringing. We can still meet at unorthodoxes house as a central Meetup point.

So curious how the overpowered forgeworld did winning the tournament? Wasn't able to attend but am curious how it went. As far as FW goes, I really think the FW issue was a bit overstated in the previous posts. I feel if you have a solidly built list FW will be no more a problem than anything else.
