Random Question from C:BA

Why don't Dante and Seth have Orbital Bombardment?

In C:SM it states that all Chapter Masters have Orbital Bombardment. Now, I realize that C:SM and C:BA are two separate codices and you can't pick and choose, blah blah blah.

But, the crux of my question is this: Would giving them Orbital Bombardment have made them broken in some way?

It, perhaps, would not have made Seth broken - but Dante has enough extra abilities without granting orbital bombardment.

All of this has happened before.

They don't need it...The codex is powerful as it is. You however answered your own question and it's because they are different codex's.

From a background POV, Orbital Bombardment would probably have been a bad idea, mostly because these chapters are either going to be closely engaged already, or capable of moving very fast. Neither of these screams out "orbital support now" in my humble opinion.

Three things matter in marksmanship - location, location, location.

Who needs Orbital Bombardment when you can deep strike your entire army in Land Raiders?

Blood Angels are too busy frothing at the mouth and applying hair spray to aim and fire battleship lances.

ther orbital bombardment is throwing landraiders at the enemy.

It doesn't suit their fighting style as they are a close quarters style fighting so it would be too dangerous for them.

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
