So it's OK that they go faster then a jetbike? Or are you joking? To me that
just seems wrong.

I have never heard anyone but Eldar think that the Eldar titans are
worthless in epic. That is not to say I think the current Elf titans are
cheesey, just that they are well worth their points.

Does this mean that strategy ratings are in epic97? They are one of the
reasons I dislike 40K. I heard that tragedy cards are in epic97, I just hope
their not taking ALL the bad things about 40K for epic97.

As has been pointed out the skimmers don't see everything all the time
anymore, but to be able to charge and pop-up, fall-back and pop-up,
overwatch and pop-up seems a little lame to me.

I just wish that Imperial Guard were a popular 40K army. Then they might get
good stuff instead of having stuff eliminated.

Having to stay the colour of parmesian everyday.

But cheese can be the colour of bananas.

And cheese can be stronger then the wind.
