I'm not sure what's actually changed from normal in the Carnifex entry.

Oh, and that dreadnought entry ::). If I vote for it, I'll look like a complete hippocrite thanks to my arguments in the monstrous creatures vs walkers debate.

I think I know what has changed with the Carni-entry. You'd have to ask the Entrant :P

I kinda like the Dread. Potentially more survivable then before, but also has weakness that players who know can use.
And if you're worryied about the debate, maybe you could say the higher voted entry between the carni & the dread is the better style for MCs? :P

I don't like the dread. A vehicle with Feel No Pain just seems wrong. It Will Not Die. . .well, there is precident for it, bit it just doesn't seem to fit dreads. It has no reason to regen wounds on the battlefield that I can think of.

Maybe once the contest is over, I'll nudge the Etrant to make a seperate posting about it, for a better discussion on the subject :P

For entry A, does this rule change mean that a Drop Pod landing on impassable terrain would suffer a mishap like normal deep-striking units? Perhaps you could PM the entrant to find out.
Ahh Cammerz has typed himself into oblivion! :o Someone get him back xD

That would certainly seem to be the case. Which is fine by me.

*grumble* immune to mishaps my left buttock..
So how many crashes have I survived now?

I think this and the CaC contest will be the only contests I enter. Its just so awkward being able to see how many votes my entries have in them both XD

Doesn't help that I've noticed something I missed with my entry for here, and had it been posted in the House Rule Board, I'd probably change it. But I'm being forced to wait, becuase I have no idea how the change(s) may affect peoples opinion on my entry.

Well, at least I now know this feel. Gives me reason to stay professional about the contests, and ensures I don't enter myself :P

That's alright, I noticed a couple of things I should've changed/clarified in my entry for this one too, and i forgot to include my explanation, so don't worry about it. :P

Hell, I completely forgot to enter the Create a Character contest lol.

WOO! I won what I think is the first contest I ever actually entered! Drop pods are good for something besides annoying me!
