"The Command Cards can have a serious impact on your list. The ability to hold in secret an ability or action that your opponent does not know you have can in itself be a game changer. The community seems to be of a mixed opinion on the cards as a whole."

I'm also mixed; it is an easy way to add and remove points from a list. The issues is that does it increase or normalize the randomness in the game.


/aside. I found the OMG secret stratagem in my vest the other day Sad

Fine for casual play I think. But still not likely to get them. The table is getting cluttered enough as it is, with everything but models.

Even then I've seen people stop playing certain games ever again after their armies were ripped to shreds in a single turn due to combination of circumstances.

Also the cards add a whole bookkeeping aspect (and are easy to loose) to the game that I'm not a fan of.

Also, they are Nationals legal, so not really "casual" at that point...

The strategems in 40k seem to be well thought out because you don't buy them with points, you use command points that could be used for other things..
