Hi NAF'ers,
as a paying member, I figure I might as well ask here:
Will you be considering your ruling on Khorne from january 2013? Ever?

The original ruling hinted that their status might change at some point. It's been almost 2 years now, so it might be time to mull it over.
*Since the team was released, I think it is safe to say that it is no longer reasonable to fear that they are overpowered.
*Not to mention it has been close to 5 years since we last had a new team. It's not like we're getting swamped with new teams. Certainly not cr*p like Space marines or Gretchin, as hinted in the original ruling.

I personally think they're a fun addition (even if the could do with some minor Price cuts).
Anyway: New management. New policy?

Cheers
Martin

Edit: And heck, it would certainly be a step towards the Cyanide fanbase.
And it's not like we'd have to accept everything Cyanide Cooks up. Really, it's a decision that can be applied on a team-for-team basis.

Since someone opened the can of worms...

This playing and paying member would also welcome the "Khorne" roster being NAF accepted/approved.

Don't have a personal opinion on this either way, but would there be potential to give them 'semi-official' status? Effectively they would become an optional team for NAF Sanctioned tournaments at the TOs discretion. Wouldn't force them onto Tournaments that didn't want them, but would allow the NAF to start collating some data (if it's required) on their performance.
There would be changes required to the NAF database which would incur costs of some kind.

I'd like to see some NAF-sanctioned (-acknowledged? -suggested?) optional teams as well. Khorne and Bretonnian seem like logical choices to start with... Who else? Is there a team from FUMBBL's stunty league that would be ripe for inclusion? Apes of Wrath? Another "alternate human" team?

I think having available minis would be essential for getting tabletop players into a new squad, and the support of those players would be important to NAF sanctioning. Certainly, new minis would be fun for players and good for the businesses that support the game--a new team could sell quite a few minis if players knew it was going to be widely accepted. But I don't know how that would work... When the "new" Slann team came out, what did people use to play them? How long did it take for teams to become available? Did minis have anything to do with when players/tourneys started using them?

No thanks. (I'll self-censor myself of the rest of the post).

Balanced argument, well presented. :wink:

We've had a Khorne team in our league, "Piloted" by Sann0638 the NAF Media guy for one season, its certainly not proven overpowered....

Personally I have no objection to its inclusion, maybe Mike (Sann's) will add his (more informed) views.

Khorne are a pile of rubbish, and just as they are getting good the commissioner makes us take new teams next season! Booooooooooo! :lol:

Love them to bits though, and would rush to become the first person to have played "the 25".

How popular is the Khorne team on Cyanide compared to the other races they have available?

They are the most "official" race outside of the 24 but when BB2 comes out we don't know when or if they will be included in that and who know how long BB1 will still be active after that.

If the NAF are going to approve new teams why not create new NAF BBRC to make several new teams rather than being lumbered with the rather lacklustre Khorne team?

Entertaining. But relevant?

They've been allowed at the last three or four tourney's I've attended and in the league I play in and have not ripped anything up. An interesting and diverting roster that appeals to many.

Tell me your objections. I'd genuinely like to know.
