Why No Love for the forts? Many armies are seriously lacking in the anti air firepower that a good fort provides. Also, it seems the forts, and the new system for setting up the terrain have given new life to an otherwise sort of stale ~ everything 4+ game~ Just a thought but does not hobbytown likely have forts on the shelf? Does it not seem kind of strange that you would sell items that have some great new rules and add a whole new aspect to the game, and then ban them from gameplay? Are they so massively overpowered as to break the game?
Have we even played enough games to render an informed decision? Why not ban flyers? I would put forth the question...... Are we banning forts based on the fact that they are so overpowered? Or are we simply banning them because they demand that we come up with a new method for terrain setup at tournaments?
......... "Instant replay will slow down the game too much........." "A college football playoff will devalue the regular season........." ect ect ect
We should embrace change and innovate the tourney scene : ) GW put forts.. allies... flyers..... in the new rules for a reason.....
One final thought; giving players a hand in setting up the terrain on the table which they play could actually help take some of the onus off TO's... as we all well know, despite the different looking terrain, think of how many tourneys you have played where every table is a carbon copy... you know the deal... one big peice in the middle, and one peice centrally located in each other section, no peices touching the edge of the table... so on and so forth.... If you have not played a game where you used the new rules for setting up terrain, I urge you to do so, they have the forts factored in very nicely and it is well balanced.
No Dis, just some random thoughts.... What do you guys think about this issue?
As always, my apology for any poor spelling and whatnot.
Let me start off here by saying no offence taken.
I talked to Ed about this before we put the stuff on the calendar and the events forum. We were thinking about how we set the tables up before hand. a few of the tables have so much terrain on them that putting your defenses out could cause some issues. However, I will talk to Ed again and we will readdress the issue.
Tepogue: I agree with you on this part of it, I have a Space Wolfs army I was working on that I have put on the back burner because of that same reason.
greycat: We have a Imperial Bastion on the shelf right now but I've been having trouble keeping up with sales on the fortifications. I have addressed that issue with the owner and we are going to redouble our efforts.
