Hi guys. I used to be active on the old forum, way back, if anyone here remembers. Re-visited it again today and it seemed like there were some technical issues there.

Anyway, I've just started dipping my toes in 8th edition. Seems pretty good so far, though I haven't played more than a single 500pt match.

Ah, more and more of old hands returning ^^

And we sure could use some opinions on vehicles in 8th.

For sure. I don't know if the "vehicles have wounds" thing is new 8th edition or if it's from an older rule set, but I havn't played since tanks had armor values. Is the removal of vehicle specific rules a good thing for it's sinplocity's sake, or does it nerf vehicles to some extent?

Also, Sup sup Panzergraf!

It is a good thing for damage output and survivability, not so great for feeling different and vehicle like.

I've only tried one small battle thus far, against an opponent who was even more rusty than me and hadn't played since 3rd ed (!), but it felt like my vehicles had been buffed substantially. Sure, they may be whittled down over time by small arms, but being more resilent to lucky damage table rolls makes up for it.

I do miss the different front, side and rear armor facings, they made tanks "feel" right, if that makes sense.

What I really love about 8th edition so far is the return to AP modifiers, rather than just having enough AP to ignore an armore save or not. Weapons that used to have AP4, like auto cannons and heavy bolters, might as well have had AP- back in last edition, but now they feel more useful. Also, my powerful anti tank weapons are finally as powerful against monsters as they are against tanks.
