I am a returning WH40k player, been about 15 years since I played last. I brought quite a bit of DE because I love the way the DE army looks and they are the most mobile force in the game or so I thought. I am putting my army together and painting them atm.. I have a few questions about the DE and hope some of the more experienced players can help me.
First of all, why are our Pain Engines (dreads) and Flyers in the Heavy section?? All the other codexes I have look at have dreadnoughts in Troop (or was it Elite) and their Flyers are in Fast Attack. It really limits the choices we have. I would love to field some Pain Engines, just because they look sweet, but really cant justify it because our other Heavy choices fits into the army much better. Bugger...
Now I hear that Eldar are the new super mobile army?? They got Battle Focus or something, I thought everyone could move and shoot?? Or is it just move and snapshot? Dont tell me the sissy Eldar are most mobile now..
Are DE still competitive? With the new rules, heard that more weapons now ignore Feel No Pain and we lost some movement in assault I think it was. Tau looks like a serious pain in the a.. now.
Thanks and love the forum
