When you say "The Empire now has MORE Synergy," I thought it necessary to give you a slap across the face. How can it have 'more' synergy when you field less of the same, and in some cases even weaker then the sum they have replaced?
The few improvements you have installed into this rulebook in no way outstrip the points increases or rulechanges you have incorporated for even the most basic of infantry types found within.

Please find a different occupation and leave the gaming side of my hobby alone.
