So, I finally got my copy of Only War, and having not had the beta, it is nice to finally get to see what's all in the book. Two little things I see "missing", though (the Valkyrie's block should be a third, but not relevant to this entry) are both attached to the Tech-Priest Enginseer. First, I notice that they don't get The Flesh is Weak, and it doesn't seem to exist. This game is more in the DH power level, so one supposes that, since DH Tech-Priests didn't see Machine (X) Trait until Ascension, that would be a similar absence here. Accurate? I know that, in many cases, the Flesh is Weak made for silly-powerful Tech-Priests and Techmarines. Does this all explain the absence, or is there a Tier 3 way, likely, to get it, and I just missed it?
Second, and considerably less important, though humorously similar, I see that the game does not include Power Armor, AT ALL. At first, this didn't surprise me, as NO IG I am aware of can field in Power Armor, but then I remembered that Tech-Priests in the Table Top field in Power Armor, probably as a reflection of their machine-like nature. While these games certainly deviate from the "established" rules of the TT when appropriate, and it might be gone in a similar way, and for a similar reason, as The Flesh is Weak, being just too much AP value compared to everyone else, and the operation window on the batteries could impede them, unless one of their TP powers can recharge the cell, or link it to their potentia coil, blah, blah, it still seems weird to deny the Tech-Priest BOTH ways his tech would give him armor.
So we now have Tech-Priests who are not garbed in their tech, either sheathed in it, or slowly becoming it. Accurate? Not saying either is bad, really, and I can see motivations for the choices, but just wondering if I missed anything, in my new book, or other's feelings on the matter.
