They all have air units at the least. Playing through it as SoB right now so I am not sure beyond that. Don't think so though C.

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?

They all recieved aircraft- some more powerful than others. I'm pretty sure table-top versions of all these units are available from forgeworld in case anyone was wondering.
Here are descriptions of them:

Marines: Land Speeder Tempests= armed with an assault cannon and can be upgraded with frag missiles (anti-infantry) or krak missiles (anti-armor)

Orks: Fighta-Bomma= I don't know much about this one

Chaos: Hell Talon= Armed with what I think is an autocannon and has the ability to drop poison bombs that spreads a disease through the enemy ranks

Eldar: Nightwing= don't know much about this one but it appears to be designed for fighting against infantry

Imperial Guard: Marauder Bomber= has a wimpy anti-aircraft lascannon, a wimpy anti-infantry heavy bolter, and the ability to make bombing runs with one of three types of bombs; krak bombs - which are good against vehicles and buildings, incendiary bombs- which create a massive fire for a small amount of time that is great against infantry, or smoke bombs- which do something (I have no idea what).

Necrons: Essence of the Deceiver= has a ranged attack not powerful enough to kill an ork boy; the ability to create a fake monolith that does no damage but distracts enemies and can have infantry summoned to it; and can temporarily make enemy infantry join your side. I'd rather use the nightbringer. Also, attack scarabs have been changed so now they can fly but can only attack aircraft.

Tau: Barracuda=effective against vehicles and buildings but doesn't do anything to infantry

EDIT: Hell Talon's autocannon is effective against vehicles and buildings

The marauder is pretty cool but the others are just Ok nothing special. They had the oppertunity to make some cool new units but kinda fucked up. They shouldn't leave this to the modders but do it themselves!

A lot of them are effective in the campaign (ex. land speeder tempests and hell talons are great for destroying the shrines in the Sisters of Battle HQ mission), but they only seem good in multiplayer games as a distraction. Unfortunately, although marauders are cool, you are limited to two of them at a time and they take up much needed IG vehicle pop. They really should have spent more time on this game. I wouldn't mind waiting an extra 4 months just to get a few more cutscenes and a couple more units. Or they could have simply worked an extra week to make the aircraft more powerful.

Dark Eldar seem to be the most broken army I've run across and extremely competitive. I know most people think the SOB's are just plain nuts but once you get some soul generation the DE's get to be pretty ridiculous :/

The nightwing is indeed geared to infantry and with fully upgraded will regen health. It has a wimpy attack until it expands its wings from sitting for a bit then it rains death on infantry. The ork Fightabombers have an extremely long ranged bomb for some odd reason, not the greatest but nifty. Sisters got a lightning which seems usful tot ake other aircraft out and suicide runs to complete objectives.

Actually I enjoy the Deciever, but the Sisters aircraft is crap, but the Tau baracuda are amazing. I just build 5 of them and make them scout out the bases and take everything out. Works about up to STR 7.
