MKII Fieldtest Rules

Post  DoktorM on Tue Apr 07, 2009 12:49 am

The fieldtest rules are out at Privateer. After a brief look, they look sweet. Nothing apparently broken - no more uber infantry and if they are still powerful they will cost you. Point and Icon systems will need some getting used to. A basic battle group game = @ 25pts. An old 500 point about 50 points. You get the picture. And jacks are back! Casters cost nothing and each - essentially - get a free light jack (points toward WJ +5 or +6 depending on the caster). Some of the insane caster abilities of legends have been levelled.

I got a small chance to look over the Khador stats and some of the changes. I for one think its a great idea, since they are going to be moving to plastic models starting in June and when you buy a box set for a unit you get a full 10/5 man unit, instead of the base 6/3. Also nice to see that jacks have gotten much better and in most cases are cheaper then units, not to mention that your caster is free and each one gives x points just for jack cyclops

Yeah - Overall I am pretty happy with MkII. I think it sensibly nerfs infantry machine by either limiting the power of infantry or keeping the power but make you pay for it. I am a bit sympathetic to the complaint that some of the flavor of factions has been lost in favor of equalizing the playing field. As I have been just recently getting into Cryx, they took a little bit of the crazy fun out of Cryx. For instance, they removed Unbound from the Deathjack. That ability was just a plain fun, and besides it gave the opponent some opportunity to take counter-measures against an advanced deployed heavy jack with essentially arc node and its own focus. I think they should keep it and, maybe make it like a point cheaper (although I'd still field it at its new point cost with Unbound - just too much fun to be had).

On another note, PP just released an update of the MKII rules and stat cards. I understand that they are field testing, but new tweaks released every 7 days or so. Evil or Very Mad My printer (and wallet) are going to hate me!! affraid

I'll have to take a look at the new rules then, but I did really like how they broke down damage into different types. This makes a lot of things make more sense aka some Khador jack being immune to cold and some cygnar being immune to electricity.
