The 1.0 Squat list is up
and discussion is ongoing. I would like some specific input on movement. This is a hotly debated item and as much as I would like to discuss other aspects of the list, this one warrants the most attention because it has broad effects on the list. Once this is decided we can move on to issues like the stubborn rule, Super-Heavy movement, and other nitty-gritty details.
For anyone new to the topic, the 1.0 list has all infantry moving at 10cm, 5cm less than standard infantry. After discussing this with a core group of playtesters, I decided upon the 10cm move because of several reasons:
1. It had been used in the Dvergatel list (Morgan Vening's baby) with no known issues.
2. It is flavorful. Squats are short and it adds a racial distinction to the list.
3. It encourages a type of play that I think captures the Squat mentality. Move up, shoot, then sit. If assaulted they, hold their own.
There have been some playtests by one active group that show this to be problematic. While I haven't been able to duplicate their concerns, that doesn't make them any less valid. Please vote with the most accurate choice, but also feel free to provide an argument for changing the movement or supporting it. Use pictures or illustrations if possible to detail any concerns or lack thereof.
