Jake Corteen won the British Masters with a flying circus KoE list to bring one example.
They have had viable infantry lists for some time which is very new.
OK can play monster mash, hero hammer, death star, gun line, balanced as well. I would say that is "a lot" of options, wouldn't you?
I believe @Ipower just won a major event in the UK with SA guerrilla style list.
We are probably both biased, you looking for flaws me looking for upsides. Maybe that is the reason for different outlooks on same armies.
/Jacob - not offended and still not seeing facts, just a different point of view.
KoE flying circus to me is more than 2 units of pegasi (8 models) and 1 character on pegasus, and you won't get more if you equip them.
Before 1.3, you could field 3 units plus 3 flying characters. Like I said, you don't have to like the option, but it was there, now it is gone.
So added together, you confirm that OK didn't loose or gain anything, and KoE lost something.
Just because somebody names his army after a lost option doesn't make the option available.
