The OTHER Ancient Enemy

Got to play with a bunch of folks at an Independent Characters' event yesterday and it was a lot of fun. I played in two games; a 1500 mano-a-roboto slugfest vs. Necrons and then in a Zone Mortalis team game (Eldar & Ravenwing vs. Plague Marines and Necrons). Got thoroughly trounced in both by necrons - I haven't played against them that much, so it was a real learning experience.

Banshees: Something to Howl About?

By now, even I'm getting tired of working up cheeky cultural references to tie into my posts, so I'll stop. I promise, soon.

So what's with Banshees now? There's been a lot of heat about how they 'were lackluster before, but now they are full of fail! FAIL!'

People who diss Banshees usually cite the usual reasons; the weakness of assault units combined with a soft stat line, the reduced strength of power weapons, etc. And while those are all valid issues, is it really all that hopeless?
