Firewolf Space Wolves only get 2 detachments. I know that we have Champs of Fenris and the box set formations, but that means another £60+ to get more. I would like more formations in 1 book, but thems the breaks of not playing Codex marines.

I see Raven Guard more as masters of guerrilla tactics, ambushes, hit and run attacks etc. more than straight up stealth.
I think you're bang on for their warfare methods, but that's not how GW are writing them and that's the problem.

Smells like an inconsistent plot device to me.

There's always the Fleshtearer detachment from the Shield of Baal book if you need to up your FA slots.
True, but the reason I want a new codex despite having received on just six months ago is that I want my units to be on a par with the new SM book, furiosos shouldn't have a lower number of attacks than regular vanilla dreads, our demi company is less flexible and lacks obj secured and I would like WS/BS 4 scouts, ass marines as troops again would just be a bonus. I wouldn't have wanted these things if the vanillas hadn't gotten them with this release, it's lik when DA ere stuck with 4++, combat only storm shields when everyone else got 3++ equivalents. The solution to this would be the design studio writing all the marine codexes at once, even if they released them a few months apart.

I think it's ridiculous that they're 'the sneaky Marines', because Marines aren't sneaky - their Scouts are, but Power Armour makes a noise like an idling V8 and that's just standing still. You might be able to sneak up on a half-deaf Ork sleeping off a hangover, but not much else.

tu_shan82 well that gives me hope BA will get ass marines as troops again in A YEAR AND A HALF when they get their next codex. Seems like one of my armies is always the test bed. They shoul write all the marine books together, even if they release them months apart

ntaw On the topic of the new SM codex, I'm not seeing anything that allows bike units to be taken as troops.

EDIT: just found it in the bike entry, and it now states 'any independent character with the SM faction' unlocks them as troops. FOC swaps remain in 7th!

MidnightSun No, just poorly written.

ntaw ^ HH books make them out to be plenty sneaky. Were 30k suits less noisy perhaps?

Orochi not to mention they're what... 8ft tall on average?
