Why, everytime, unless you limit it yourself, at least 20-30% of players will be Melee-focused Glorified Bodyguards!?
By Glorified Bodyguard I mean a character that has little use in RT besides that of a bodyguard.
I mean that AM/Kroot/Ork/Dark Eldar/Random-DH-combat-character that doesn't care for Tactica Imperialis of simply doesn't care for the ship's troops or doesn't even bother to setup special combat troops.
RTs usually handle everything in large scales, it really doesn't matter you have an eldar power sword and a power armor if you are fighting the enemy in the thousands!
WS is very useful for honor duels and the like - but you don't want to fight Rak Gols with that.
It's also next to nothing in ship-to-ship combat.
Yes, you get to have a cool character... But with what are you really contributing to the group as a whole?
AM, Ork! Setup a sniper's team to take out rivals, put together a group of storm troopers in power armors/bolters and jury rig a drop pod into your Cargo Hold for precision attacks.
D.E., Kroot, DH Assassin! Act like a killer! Investigate, make complex plans on how to take out the Dynasty's rivals with no one ever knowing who did it, in a single hit! At least get a decent BS so you can shoot voidship weapons so the VM can focus on piloting for example.
And if you really want to be just one more WS focused Glorified Bodyguard, learn to humiliate a rival in an Honor Duel in public situations so you can at least discredit the enemy's Dynasties! If you just keep killing minions one-by-one you won't even make a dent to it!
