Regiment Focus: Vostroya – Warhammer Community
Well that's...disappointing. A range bump? Big freaking deal--as though the Guard has ever had a problem outranging its enemies. Nice for lasguns, I guess.
I would also say "nice for plasma," but the whole point of taking plasma guns is to drop your dirt-cheap squad of plasma dudes in something's face and rapid fire like a madman. An extra 3" of rapid fire range isn't all that wonderful and nobody wants to sit back and plink away with mediocre BS plasma at long range.
Will this transfer to the Leman Russ? Having a slightly longer ranged Punisher Cannon does sound nice.
Overall, the last two have been better. It would be just my luck to wind up playing all the least optimal factions, just by dumb freaking luck. I bet the T'au Bork'an sept will get rules that allow them to throw two photon grenades instead of one.
I will say that "repel the enemy" sounds cool on paper. Much like the pistol rule, though, I kinda doubt it will come up. There's hardly ever an instance where falling back and getting a Get Back in the Fight wouldn't be a better idea.
