If the armor of the chimera was left alone, would it be acceptable to lower it's price to 60pts as you suggested?
What about the Taurox? If it's armour was left alone, would lowering it's price be acceptable? Or should it remain at it's current price?
60pts is a reasonable price for the Chimera. Can't speak for the Taurox because I don't face them. Maybe a 5pt drop?
Words... lots of pointless words.
You're right. The game changed. The game changes every time a new edition is released; every time a new codex is released. Get used to it, it's going to happen a lot.
Why were Guard successful in 5th edition, where you had to move to take objectives, but not successful in this edition where you have to move to take objectives? Why were you successful in 6th edition but not 7th edition? The rules for moving and shooting with vehicles haven't change in any way that would affect the Chimera.
But I'm done making my point. You clearly
are the only one who has anywhere near enough experience to be able to make any suggestions. You are clearly
the only person that knows what works for the Guard and what doesn't. And you are clearly
the only person who knows how to fix things. So, in the face of such awesome
knowledge, I will bow down and stop making my point. You are right, the Chimera is amphetamine parrot. Right now it is 60 points too expensive and should have 15/15/15 armour to make sure it survives being thrown into the middle of the enemy's lines. Clearly what the Guard need are no weaknesses. How could I have been so blind not to see that?
