Librarians should get some more XP for psychic powers.

Librarians need WT (Force).

Devastators need WT(Heavy) and WT(Las or Flamer).

Krak and Frag Granades have the same blast radius, I think Krak Granades should have no or a much smaller blast radius then frag granades.

The Astartes Lascannon needs Proven(3) or it is weaker then the IG Lascannon.

I don't think there's a Jump Pack in OW so you'd need to stat that out if you want people to use this without DW.

The same goes for the Servo Arm

What is the baseline for comparison here? Black Crusade or Deathwatch?

 

Ah, these were based off of Black Crusade. The specalizations took inspiration from Deathwatch, but not much else.

I would give the Apothecary the option to have a Chainsword or a Bolter just to make it more in line with the iconic apothecary from the Table Top. And the standard Power armor used by loyal marines, the mark 7 armor, gives 10 AP to body and 8 every place else.

 Hmm instead of giving all space marines a bunch of aptitudes in common and then giving each speciality one additional aptitudes how about giving each one it's own list.

 

 

I actually like the way Plushy did this! I had posted on another thread that all SM's were essentially the same until they became Veterans and gained their "true" specialty. This method actually reflects that while giving the Nod to the fact that a character's personal aptitude will have been there all along. Nice job!aplauso.gif

And just curious: What does PEACH stand for???serio.gif
