The alternative is a normal weapon and saving your points for something useful.

I don't think that getting 1 S4 (S5 with Cursed Blade) power sword per unit is going to make a *huge* amount of difference.

It does when you have 5 attacks on 3-4 units, remember Reavers can also take a Power Sword.

Both are 5pts right now, how is it saving you points?

4 S5 -3AP attacks that hit on 2s for 5 points is something useful.

It is also nice to have the option on Test of Skill units against vehicles.

With dissies, S5 -3AP is not a weapon profile I particulary lack in my lists. I would gve my wyches a blast pistol over a power sword anytime. Even if it's 1 in 2 units (to fit the 5pts of the power sword)

Blast Pistols and Power Swords have little in common, besides point costs. If you are taking Wyches to cause damage in melee, the Power Sword is a great upgrade. If you are taking Wyches as a Troops tax, minimum size with maybe a Shardnet upgrade, go Blast Pistol. Taking both is not a huge cost, even for someone line me, who runs 6 Wyche units, that's 60 points.

I made the mistake of opening the Guard FAQ first. Half a page of weapon updates, flamers/melta/heavy bolters/etc.

Then went to the DE FAQ. One weapon updated, just the power sword.

Screw us, I guess. Good thing we are getting rejuvenation from all this excess emotion. Just wish the emotion was Happiness instead of Envy Razz

I knew it wasn't likely, but I am disappointed that heat lances didn't get the new melta rule. I really think we need that D6+2 damage to guarantee a Primaris kill with the shot.

Fortunately, for me, our Primaris Deathwatch player got absolutely hosed with his FAQ.

I honestly think Orks will be around Jan-Feb. But even if they are that means nothing as Marines that are literally coming out in a couple weeks got updated.

Given the major overhaul of Marines and necrons expect our units and weapons to be significantly changed. Dark Lance's will be stronger vs anti tank.  Heat Lance's will likely get a special melta rule. Splinter cannons may end up with 3 to wound or - 1 save and 2 damage like heavy bolter they need to be represented better. Dissies may be changed to a higher strength perhaps.  It's exciting. Our army may play different I think. Wyches and hellions will be a better go to now. I'm expecting-1to hit or something crazy
