I don't so much mind that they come together in one kit, but the fact that they come together as one option in the rules for 400pts is disappointing because I totally wanted to run the Land Raider, but I don't want to have to bring a Rhino with it.

What did I miss here, have the rules for these models leaked and not made it to this thread?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Some tasty stuff in there! Not gunna lie, totally blown away by every SM army being able to take them. BA and SW (and sometimes DA..?) usually get left out of the fun, no?



....also, notice no mention of Black Templars as a Faction despite the rumours of them leaving the main SM Codex.

Both of those for 400 points sounds pretty great, honestly. Giving 2 units of Devs Skyfire would be nice (or, sorry, one of them "snaps fire at full BS," heh), but there's a lot of flexibility there for when you aren't against flyers. Good anchors to a firebase, hiding that Rhino in a Ruin or behind an ADl (or, hell, in a Skyshield Landing Pad) with potential counter-attackers inside the Land Raider, or some such.

@Orochi : I don't know if GW are publishing the authors of their codexes anymore, given how much hatred got heaped on Matt Ward, calling Cruddace's books Cruddexes, the hurt anger whenever Phil Kelly made a sub-par book... Daemonkin, certainly, at least, didn't have the author's name written anywhere on it (though a fellow named Simon Green took credit for it on Facebook), and I haven't heard folks talking about who the author of the Harlequin, Skitarii, new Eldar codexes, etc, are (apart from some assumptions the new Eldar dex was from Kelly).

Even when a name is on (or in) a codex, they are much more of a team effort anyway.

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

The back of the box, showing some of the commander options and closeups on the detail work (from BoLS).

Oh great, now all I need to do is to spend $2,300 dollars on airfare and accommodation and i'll get a box, but seriously they'd look great Chaosified. Pity i'll never get them.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.
