So, I am sat on the tram with my new phone and I was wondering how long do you have to leave the flavour of the month before it becomes acceptable?
This has bugged me because after my absolute trouncing using an un-optimised chaos list at the last tournament, I wanted to use something a little more competitive.
I looked at the army and thought this looks like Marines nothing chaosy except the look. However, Space Marines aren't overly competitive themselves. That made me look at Space Wolves and I was tempted, but I already have a Space Wolf army. So that made me turn to Blood Angels and I saw a connection. I can still take two special weapons in assault squads, the Vindicators can move 12" and still shoot!!! But mostly they have psychic powers "fear the darkness" and "shackle soul" perfect!
I then looked deeper and saw that my Heresy era World Eaters would fit these rules as well. Everyone could get furious charge and fearless for 3pts less per model if I take assault squads.
So am I a horrible person for using my Night Lords with the Blood Angels codex? (not using mass jump packs). Will counts as ever be acceptable? Is there a point when the Bandwagon leaves and it is safe to grab the old flavour?
