Once everyone has everything, everyone IS everyone and everyone is bored.
You can always convey more with a few things high in flavour than many things soaked in it. Quality over quantity. The old codexes did this well. A few special rules and maybe three unique units.
The flavour in the power armoured parade comes from style of combat and cultural traits. Xenos I feel get a pass in this round cause their entire army is unlike other armies.
And maybe that’s why the power armoured armies stick out so badly. They aren’t supposed to be xenos they are space marines. We who remember when the difference being different kinds of crayon colors hate this new need to be soaked in flavour.
Ever over salted fish? No? Read space wolves codex? Yes? Okay you know the feeling then.
