I played my first game with the new dex on Thursday - trying out lots of new things, so it was anything but a cohesive list. My opponent did the same, not taking his competition DA list, so it was by no means a huge test of things, but it certainly gave me some pointers - read the write up here

I'm optimistic on this basis that I can definitely use the codex in my meta confident that I'm not going to get roasted every time unless i take a heavy dose of eldar allies, realistically the game was over by turn three as a contest, it was just a matter of how long it would take me to mop up Belial and his terminator squad.

I was really keen to try and see how PfP affected the warriors at the end of the game - do they actually become viable for assaulting if necessary (bearing in mind that shooting wasn't an option as Belial was already in combat and the scourges were unlikely to cause enough wounds to do it on their own.

Turns out yes they are, with 30 attacks from a full squad at S4 they should on average cause 7-8 wounds on WS4 T4, and more like 13-14 on WS3 T3. Enough to give most units something to think about in the last turns of a game.

I'm really not worried about our codex capacity to deal with an almost all infantry list like the one you faced. But toss a couple of rhino into that mix and suddenly we're in trouble.

Yeah i'm hoping to try stuff out against a sisters list before long, which has at least half a dozen rhino chassis in it, along with a pair of exorcists
