Ok, here are a few examples:
-Has no upgrades whatsoever.
Dark Angels Rhino:
- Are eqipped with a storm bolter, smoke launchers and searchlight.
They both have the same armour.
(with autocannon and no side sponsons) - 100 pts.
Dark Angels Predator
(ditto, as well as smoke launcers and a searchlight) - 70pts.
The codex veterans originally costs 18 pts per model, but only has one attack and leadership 8. They can, however, take terminator honours for 10 pts per model. The Dark Angels veterans cost 20 pts each, but have the terminator honours benefit included.
That means, they are 8 points cheaper than regular veterans, but just as good. Moreover, a Dark Angels veteran squad can be equipped with a maximum 3 power weapons/power fists/plasma pistols/storm bolters/combi volters/ in ADDITION to a special weapon and heavy weapon, while the codex veterans can have a maximum of 3 (because the sergeant is given it from the armoury) EXCLUDING this.
Oh, and they can take terminators as a troop choice if they just include a special chahacter.
Is it just me, or is this slightly
And aslo, has this uber-whateverit'scalled happened to other chapters who've gotten codexes on their own?
Great thing that I'm using the Dark Angels army list! Come over to the dark side, anyone?
