As it is, in Scoring Missions you can split the tactical marines into two groups of 5 dudes and have the HQ's walk around with them and leave the plasma cannons in the back. That said, it's all foot and lacking AV14 killy.

Thiessen won't be getting new models until the book comes out now though. What "Thiessen" would really like is a pair of Razorbacks :-)

just DS termies in and blow up AV14 with chain fists.

I'm a huge fan of the Plasma cannons. I'd say that my obliterators spend 75% of their time firing plasma cannons. I may have to do some "Fallen" lists. Plasma plasma plasma

True on the fists. Assault Cannons with their 4 S6 rending shots aren't useless either.

Apparently, Dark Angels will get some sort of Plasma Preditor or Razorback or something. That'd be fun.

In a way they already have, as all marine armies have access to the Predator Executioner. Only it doesn't get plasma sponsons, so maybe their codex will add that in. Or even better, DA ignore gets hot if at least 1 hq is still alive

Mike S: Ignores "get's hot" would be amazing, with 3 Plasma Cannons (I live in a dream world) I imagine with a new book, the points cost of some of those dudes would drop enough that I could fit that pred in with very little shenanigans.

Just realized the Ravenwing Bikes have Teleport Homers. Scout Move + Deathwing Assault means Termies in your face on turn 1.

are you allowed to scout move out of your deployment? or is their scout movement unique?

Believe the rumour is that DA re-roll saves vs gets hot.

either way, the more plasma cannons you can get on one unit/vehicle the more crazy they get. I would field that plasma predator every game. that whole compounding templates thing makes it nuts.

Too bad the executioner isnt available to CSM. i would buy one tomorrow. Just HB's or a storm bolter for weapon destroyed protection. Its a steal @ 125 points.

In 5th they could make their scout move OR turboboost. Not sure if that changed or what.

Rw bikes need about a 20 pt reduction in cost or +1 attacks and skilled rider.

So you deploy, redeploy 12" (which can take you out of your deployment zone),. Dw assault, then move, turbo boost, then pray they live long enough for the next squads?

Yes, basically. That first unit goes on 18" up, basically. Should be assaulting something on turn two. You could feasibly run a unit of 6 bikes, or outflank a second unit of 3.

Huh, I had missed the fact that your scout move can be outside of your deployment zone. Jeez, glad I found out here instead of during a League game!

Rats, looks like the Sergeant's on the Dark Vengeance Bikes don't have plasma pistols :-P Thiessen's got another 30 pts to spare. Well, 50 pts if you drop some melta bombs.

They have holsters on their bikes, I might play them that way until the book comes out :-P His army won't be at any tournaments or anything... He's only 5 (turning 6, but still!)

Ugh, that's one thing about the DA codex. You drop 30 points or so and it's hard to pick them up anywheres.

Clip on of the BP off. If you don't have a spare PP I have about 30.

When the new book comes out, if you can take a squad of 5 with two plasma guns, that's what he's taking :-) (Especially if I can weasel an Attack Bike in there)

Bikers?

Reg SM can, so I can't imagine why they wouldn't.
