Is the updated demo any different from the previous one?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

as far as the new units are convcerned, they look pretty cool to me. the chaos dred and LRD sound cool, however the essence of the deciever? that seems a little pathetic to me.

It's a minor update. The previous edition was still using Commander Thules model (The cutscene is still the same though). And the AI seems to be slightly more aggressive now.

The additional ground units haven't been confirmed by Iron Lore so far, although they have worked on them.
They might have been replaced them in favor of the air units - but I still hope for a surprise.
After all a techmarine sounds more interesting than just another speeder variation.

true but how would it work in the fixing stuff department would it just be like twice the speed of the servitor or something?

They were supposed to get a repair ability called "Blessing Of The Omnissiah". (dunno what it's good for)
And being able to repair vehicles on the firing line comes in handy too.

Maybe its because the sisters dont have as much stuff as the space marines do? When you boil it down the WH codex for sororitas has purely 3 HQ. 2 elites. 1 troops. 2 fast attack and 2 heavy support. Whereas marines have how much stuff? Can i count that high? Can anyone?

Give em preists you still only gain 1 elite 1 heavy.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith

*farting noise*

If this is all we got after what, three years?, I think?, then I might as well stick to DC. DC was a letdown for me, but I overcame it for Soulstorm (At the time it was DOW2), and now this. Stoopud. I was expecting custom commanders, awesome new units, GOOD flyers, and the SAME FREAKING CHARACTERS! I WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DC CHARACTERS!

This entire flop is undeserving of my time.

I play DC alot online...ALOT hahahah. The reason WHY you SMurphs aren't given yet another vehicle choice is because you have more than any other race already.
Try playing chaos with it's stunning TWO choices. We have the option of taking TWO predators,(At 4 vehicle pop each) and FOUR Defilers (3 pop each). Whoopdeefriggindoo. Both of which will die in a 1vs1 conflict with their imperial counterpart(PredvsPred, DefilervsDread)

You also have the highest amount of independant commander units mucking about the place. Commander, Chaplain, Librarian, Apothecary. Wanna guess how many eldar has? One sad little farseer to attach, and the farseer council that will permanently be attached to her.

Also you can deepstrike any of your troops and have the luxury of being able to Deepstrike dreadnaughts. Want to venture a guess what other races get to do that?(Only you, chaos, and necron.)

I personally look forward to the new game and finally having an honest to the dark gods choice over what vehicles I'll be using.

Also, we speedster players complain about you slowpokes because the first twenty seconds of the game are the most important. If you goof off during this time, we're going to lose the match.
If you want to speed yourself up, set the rally point on your main building to what point the troops are going to take. Also, make a build order for the first thirty seconds if you know what opponent you'll be facing. A good way to win again ork and necron is to tech up to tier two as fast as you can, than get a predator. Ork's generally don't get tankbustas out, and since the predator can just walk away from the fatty big mek, he's useless. Necrons are much of the same, hit and run them.

And if you ever feel insecure in space marines, just remember. You have eight times the amount of anti-vehicle that chaos does. And you have the -STRONGEST- tier two CC unit in the GAME(Grey knights, not bad for a ranged army ) and three extra guns to choose from in each squad.

I keep forgetting how hilarious my old posts are.

It's not a question of who will let me, it's a question of who will stop me.
You fight for nothing! You are nothing!

OWNED! Haha!

Man, its funny to see space marine players (of any system) react to a so called 'injustice'.
