Default Re: Banshee exarch...not fun

Those are pretty fundamental rules, though. It is supposed to be balanced by the fact that you give up the ability to make any attacks back, and also that you have to lose a leadership test for it to work. Guard actually have a reason to make return attacks, since they have the ability to bury power fists and power weapons sometimes. So I am not sure why playing Guard would make you a fair judge. The rule is there to limit the power of single models in close combat, and to keep close-combat armies from locking up tougher enemy units by intentionally getting as few models as possible into close combat. Do you drop the cost of Fire Warriors and Guardsmen to compensate? Do you change the distance for determining who is allowed to strike in close combat?
