Yeah…Ogryn still suck.
I'm just hoping that they "fix" things and include the bone 'ead enhancement somehow…as well as unnatural strength and toughness advancement opportunities with an advanced specialty or cybernetic item in the Hammer of the Emperor player's guide.
Bummer. I was hoping for exactly what you said; Unnatural Strength and Toughness as special advances!
