The danger of always changing the rules to accomodate some "cheesemongering" will inevitably fail. Since its the abilities of some to find loopholes in rules to enable them to make said cheese armies.

Having played hundreds of games of SM/TL I have seen almost all combinations of cheesy armies, all knight armies, all bloodletter armies, heavy weapon armies etc. Funnily once you have a good grasp of the game you can beat all these specialized armies with regular everyday armies, without resorting to cheese. All you need is a plan and a good knowledge of the rules.

If some have specific examples of a cheese army, I'll tell you how to counter it.

I play space wolves we don't get alot of long fangs only as support cards but I have no problem playing squats were the guy takes nothing but thunderers and bikes very hard army to beat when squats are played like that or eldar with almost all falcon grav tanks long range, pop up, and a save mod. I just come up with a new plan, like drop pods to fight the eldar, drop them 2nd or 3rd turn on objectives and win game for they don't have that many foot troops to hold you off of the objective. Boy you want to see someone get mad do that to them and fire comes out there eyes, or drop assault marines on there heavy weapons +3 to +1 caf and whatch them complain bout you being cheesey with the drop pods. Or get something to blow the crap out of biuldings when they go in them or near them shoot the building and whatch his heavies die >:| SO there you go no rule change just better plan of attack.
> Now I have a problem with HQ units dose the whole unit fight like the rules say or just the command stand? somebody told me only the command stand gets to move as charge and fire first fire not he tank, The tank is part of the unit right so i say all in HQ unit get the speical ablity Please set me right here so I know
