So, with all the goodies in the new BA codex, amongst all the golden armored jump troops and shock assault fast vehicles, lies one of the more important strategic assets in the game - Brother Corbulo.
So, its turn 6 and your up one objective in a tournament match, and your opponent rolls to continue onto turn 7... damn if the game would have ended here I would have won. Wait wait, what do we have here. Ill be using Corbulos ability to reroll any one die roll in the game. Ohh, you rolled and this time the game ends, wow, I just won... Ohh no, I just failed that leadership test with Mephiston because he isnt fearless. Ill go ahead and reroll that that 6...
So, with a little strategy as outlined above, I find that Corbulo bring something to the game no other character is able to (outside perhaps the SW HQ that can become a kill point), the ability to attempt to change the ever important game length. This is a very bizarre move by GW considering they claim to want to streamline the game. I noticed a number of things in the BA codex that seem to go counter to that philosophy. Continue to debate!
Also, feel free to click on an add for me, get me an extra 50 cents or so for my modeling fund :-)
