I mean, you may have to change the Sweep power attack, but aside from that, would it totally break the game to just get rid of arcs and treat huge-based models the same as any other model? There might be advantages to simplifying these things next time they do an edition change.
But would it really make sweep over the top if you got rid of the arcs? As another posted said you lose your initial attacks while doing it. Also most colossals are only mat 6 so when being jammed by higher def troopers you maight have to boost as well so your colossal might only make that one attack.
It might just add some flare and different gameplay options, it could be to powerful But i am not sure. I do think they need to look at the special power attacks for colossals as they don't seem to be viable options at the moment
I’m not an expert; I rarely play huge bases because they are less convenient to transport on the bus, so maybe it would be fine.
I’m not sure arcs of fire add much tactically to the game, and it would probably be worth removing them. Even the fluff argument doesn’t really make sense to me... most colossals and gargantuans can easily turn their hips and swing at people on both sides as regular sized warjacks and warbeasts do. The only situation where it might not make visual sense is some of the battle engines with really extreme sponson-mounted weapnry like the Gun Carriage, but even then, I think it is just as, if not more egregious to imagine wagons and chariots turning on a dime or getting thrown into reverse during their reposition move.
