Join Godfrey, Trooper, and our guest Ultimate Dave 469 as they discuss the release of the new Imperial Guard (or Astra Militarum if your silly and actually use that name). The book certainly shows some signs of improvement over it's predecessor, but does fall a little short in terms of the potential it had. Its a roller coaster ride filled with ups.... and the downs........

Something stirs in the heart of the galaxy. Something which has not been envisioned sense a time when the Emperor of all Mankind walked among his people. A vision of the Imperium's perfect warriors re-imagined.
They shall be the true Angels of Death. And they shall without doubt know no fear.

Thinking how valuable stat points are and how this influences game design and it got me to thinking. In a lot of places we have rules that act as artificial statistics, specifically I'd like to talk about re-rolls, how they've popped up in 40k and what that can tell us about the value of different statistics. Broadly speaking, we can group rolls into three categories: saves, shooting attacks and melee attacks. I'll not discuss re-rolls to wound, as they fall into one of the other categories and can vary in value much more than the other three. This one will be much more evidence-based than statistics based, so don't be afraid to come with me.
