Am I the only one that's bothered by the fact you can't purchase Jump Packs for the Command Squad when you can purchase bikes?

Granted, as a Raven Guard player I'm incredibly biased, but the only similar parallel I can find the codex is the Techmarine, and I'm not going to argue for a jump pack on his already overloaded backpack. (Though the more I think about it, that might look awesome. Pretty please?)

I'm guessing the issue arises from the Command Squads potential for being quite a shooty unit, and having a shooty unit on top of impassable terrain might upset some people. Naturally this logic falls down as soon as you consider skimmers.

I'm genuinely at a loss with this one, so I'm just going to curl up in the corner with the Kauyon supplement and see if I missed a page.

Overall I'm very happy playing Raven Guard, this is just a niggle I thought I'd get out there. Thoughts please!

Try mixing in a small Blood Angels force, their command squads can take jump packs. That way you won't be missing them.

Except our Command squads have mandatory Champions and Priests, which doesn't suit many people considering the Champion's lack of wargear options.

Ugh. Champions. Bleugh.

I'd happily fork out more points for a better champion, but forcing challenges on a standard veteran marine with +1 WS when there's almost guaranteed to be better challenge fighters in the combat makes zero sense to me.

But like you said, very fortunately not mandatory.
