I keep reading on those forums how warrior models, especially infantry units don't really exist in the game. That the power boost for warjacks made them irrelevant. The low POW weapons or models often get the comment "they are theoretically good but not in the mk3 environment where they have nothing to kill".
I find it not true at all. And not only in my local environment but also battle reports from abroad seem to contradict that. Armies tend to have, on average 10-20 warrior models in units and additional 5-10 in support. There are some excellent infantry/cavalry units and solos in the game, that really pull their weight and appear very often. Trenchers, Stormlances, Idrians, Flamebringers, Karax, Ferox, Satyxis Raiders, Fennblades, Sentry Stones, Iron Fangs, Winterguard, Widowmakers, Dawnguard types, Mage Hunters, Farrow Brigands...the list could go on.
In addition, most factions seem to have an even bigger group of not-best-but-still-good ones or ones which work very well with specific casters. They are even more numerous and also appear often.
Add to this ubiquitous support models like the Krielstone, Choir, Paingivers and a smattering of solos of different flavours.
That's a lot of warrior models in the, supposedly, warrior-light edition!
Yes, there are some armies that include only warjacks or warbeasts with some support, but, from what see, they are an exception rather than a norm and are quite normal as they are tied to warcasters and warlocks who are created to run such armies, like Amon, Karchev or Absylonia 2. They are counter-balanced by many casters who only take very few warjacks/warbeasts and concentrate on infantry, because that's what they do best - Vindictus or High Reclaimer or Goreshade 2 are some examples. So, yes, those ends of the spectrum exist but still the most numerous middle seems to run combined arms to me.
So, where does this conception of mk3 as an edition with no warrior models come from, in your opinion ? Or is your meta really only ARM+boxes and nobody plays dudes or horses ?
