Stormraven's turret doesn't have to target the closest enemy, nor do any fighters with servitor pilots. Also, you haven't explained why the operator has to be a techmarine specifically and why a regular marine can't do.

So here's the insulting part:
3+ 3W is flatly superior to 2+ 2W in almost every single situation imaginable.
5++ is overrated, as I'm sure you've discovered if you've played terminators.

But that isn't why aggressors are better

aggressors absolutely *shit* out damage compared to terminators. Each aggressor is putting out 9.5 bolter shots each on average, 19 if they stood still, for about the same price as a terminator (who is only putting out 4 in a best case scenario)
*and* aggressors are flat out 50% better in melee too.

The cherry on top is that aggressors can advance and shoot their guns with no penalty, meaning they have a significantly better max damage threat range than terminators do outside of deep strike

Deep strike is legitimately the only advantage terminators have in normal play but they're so pillow fisted it barely matters.

Death guard have the newest models and are pretty divisive in terms of looks: either people love them or hate them. If you like them, they just got a lot better with psychic awakening and their models are widely available.

>custodes
second newest army in terms of models, also just got their PA book. Decently fun but not really competitive without either spamming bikes or forgeworld units. That being said they're definitely playable and fun. Also they look fantastic.

>grey knights
third oldest army in terms of models. Used to be shit for most of 8th edition, are actually quite strong now with their Psychic Awakening book. Most of their models are less than a decade old and hold up very well but they have some finecast stuff which is a bummer.

>World Eaters
the oldest chaos faction and one of the oldest in terms of models in the whole game. You're going to be bringing a fuckton of khorne berserkers which are REALLY good in game but have models that can legally vote. They look really fucking weird next to new CSM who are bigger and much more detailed.

Probably a good choice. They have a relatively new range. A good choice if you like converting. About to get some new rules.

>Grey Knights
They just came out of a long run of being one of the worst armies in the game. They have quite an old model range but I think it holds up very well with one exception. They don't get a lot of new stuff, but as an Imperium army you can easily slot in other things from the faction once you're happy with your regular guys. One huge problem is that their main centre-piece unit is the worst model in the entire GW catelogue, The Dreadknight.

This guy gets it. The modern left is based around brainwashing. The believers are made to de-learn and then re-learn about everything in order to completely alter their eprception of "normalcy". That's why their catch-phrase is "educate yourself!". They have alternative definitions for most political words (what a progressive means by "racism" or "equality" is vastly different from classical definitions of those words) as well as an arsenal of newspeak that marks anyone using it as a member of their cult.

They were for a campaign I ran with a couple of mates; the Scrapkillas are a mechanised Deathskull warband that specialises in wrecking the vehicles and of their enemies and using them to build more dreads and buggies. Chop Shop here is the nominal leader but its effectively more of a big mek coop that all specialize in their own things

Fluffwise they were recently pushed off the imperial agriworld Harvest IV after a three way war in a ruin city between them, Eldar and Death Guard in pursuit of a lost Eldar artifact. Despite building increasing numbers of kans, dreads and eventually a Morkanaut they were unable to dislodge the entrenched Death Guard before they performed a ritual to corrupt the continent. Since then they've gone off planet and are slowly accumulating more vehicles as Chop Shop has started building a Kult of Speed around him

They tried to give each army more personality by giving them unique formations. This was a good idea on paper but led to an arms race since they became ever better. Problem was that only a handful of factions (Marines, CWE and Necrons) sat in the sweet spot where they had broken formations and undercosted codex entries at the same time. Then there was the problem with GW releasing new center point models for some armies (Wraithknights, Riptides etc.) which not only looked awesome but also had very competitive rules and were criminaly undercosted (no surprise, right?).
So what we ended with were a small number of viable army builds (for pick up games against randos) that were neither fun to play against nor to play with. Roflstomping your enemy with your Wraithknights becomes boring after a short time.
The rules itself were mostly fine though if a bit tedious at times (haggeling with your opponent over nanometers when using templates for example).

What I miss the most is how armies were spread out over most of the table back then. Now they have all these incetives to clump up and form walking or stationary castles. Hopefully 9ED will bring more dynamic manouvering back to the game.

7th also had a machanic similar to CP with warp charges. You could get a bunch of psykers in order to farm them just like CP.
That said I had more fun with 7th than 8th.
Something about not having actual options even if they are shit kind of killed the fun.
For example the amount of dumb crap you could do with Inquisitorial Acolyte and how much extra gear you could give to vehicles was fun.
With 7th you could simply remove formations and it could be usable. With 8th? I cant even find where to start
