I mean it is pretty common that a new tome changes things up and some people lost things they deeply loved and dont like direction the new tome is going. It sucks, but thats how it goes. The old Astrolith and especially the old Thunderquake were tiresome imo. and felt like a band-aid fix to a broken army. It was annoying having to roll 5 times to determine damage for Razordons and Bastiladons. I'm surprised they kept the 2D6 for Razordons but oh well. The new Bastiladon is different to the old - It lost the MW save and ethereal, but gained a significantly better save at max health and now you can go Coalesced and get -1 damage, that's pretty big. The damage from the new Bastiladon is pretty close to what you got from the old Bastiladon with rerolls to hit and wound, and in Thunder Lizard with shoot twice it is significantly better. It is also somewhat more reliable now with flat 9 attacks at full health and +hit buffs. It really sucked to teleport a Bastiladon and then roll double 1s for the amount of attacks. Loads of stuff is viable now. You just have to open up and embrace the new playstyles.
