Default What If: The new codex is a let down?

Like the title says, what if the new IG codex really is a big let down? :-\ We get all the good rumors and we jump up and about in excitement.

What do you fear losing most? What would you do if the new IG is like the Smurf one? I've heard about codex creep, how would that apply to the IG?

If our codex is like the SMurf one, then for once people will whine and complain about the IG being overpowered.

I just fear using our mortality, our human nature with lots of fancy gizmos and what not. I want us to stay as the guard, with ancient technology and lots of manpower, things that are unlikely to change.

I always got Orks to fall back on but looking at the new Codices namely Ork, Eldar, Chaos Space Marines and the more recent Chaos Daemons and Space Marines, it doesn't seem too bad for the Guard.

The option of having 4 special weapons in command squads.
But I can live with that what I fear more is losing the ability to take sisters/grey knights (more inquisitor codex really) and losing the flavour of the guard. (ok I got 100 guardsmen to deploy then when your almost done "lets not forget the tank" and you put another 5 vehicles on the table which will stay stationary for most of the game (I don't want manuever guard that's Tau, guard are with many have the best tanks in the game and can stuff more infantry up your Throat then you can handle))

But I'll see what games workshop cooks up.

PS: And troops with deep strike.

Not unless the Eldar have an obscure Warrior Aspect that revolves around the complete mastery of the common light bulb.

Well, I wouldn't really mind if the suicidel command squads would go away as long as they give the command squads a better role. Also you can also take special weapon teams for replacment.

Does your command squad with 4 plasma guns deep strike or do they make it very dangerous for terminators to deep strike anywhere near your gun base? (I know what the answer is)

Then I'll have a lot of work to do. :P

But seriously, if the rumours hold true, we have a lot to look forward to and will find a way to make things right.

It wasn't about whether they are usefull or not,I dont really think the officers are supposed to do much combat anyway, they should be commanding not being a terminator reppelant. ;D
