That's super dumb... I can't believe they are bringing that crap back! Why the hell would you need a battle forged army to capture an objective.... that's like the American army on D day saying "guys! We forgot to bring an extra tanks! Looks like we can capture this bunker, oh wel... might as well go home!"

I am tempted to put 20 grotz in a battlewagon equipped with a deffrolla and send it to combat.  Get 20 pistol shots, hitting on 3's, in addition to the wagon rolling over stuff.

Hope this posts..

I was going to say that it would seem to encourage larger troop units. So large mobs would have to be targeted. Over all it just forces models count to be important again and maybe makes some other troop units have to move rather than stand around in the back. Armies constructed with things like points heavy single models will have a more difficult time.

Keep in mind, its battle-forged, not a specific detachment. All narrative and matched play games already use battle-forged detachments and there are a lot more option s for detachment composition than there used to be.

As pointed out throughout this thread, orks a couple cheap and decently effective options to fill troop slots, so this is less of a hindrance than out may be for some other armies
