    Hmm, I'm in many ways still fairly new to 40k, but why the Terminator Armour on the ACs? As I understand mixed armour rules, if you were to recieve enough wounds to the unit at least one of the saves would have to be made using the ACs terminator 2+/5+ and if by some odd chance you were to fail that save the AC would have to take the wound (and die). I may be misunderstanding the mixed armour rules, but as the AC generally can't be singled out anyways I'm not sure what advantage Terminator armour's really granting. Also, as you have some points left over, why do none of the ACs have Thralls?

    Finally, it may just be a point of personal preference, but I really like Wind of Chaos and a Thrall for squad ACs in a rhino. You'll probably be getting close to the enemy anyways with them, and two Winds of Chaos combined with 8 rapid firing Bolters should be able to take out even the toughest unit that may have otherwise shredded you in Hand to Hand. Like I said, it's my personal preference and you may have a particular strategy for using the BoC in the rhino that I'm missing.

    Overall looks good though.

    to answer your question destp, about my ACs.. Terminator armor is cheaper than or the same price as giving him a power weapon or powerfist, and D. Mutation, with the added bonus of the 2+save and the 5+invuln, just in case you end up with just our AC left in combat (which happens to me a lot).

    As to why no thralls, I forgot them haha, I knew I was forgetting something lol. I will fix that. As for why not take WoC on the AC in the Rhino, I usually end up almost tank hunting, anti-high point model killing unit. They just run around shooting bolts out at a safe range, and then when they get out, they just duke it out till they die... pretty effective thus far.

    Thanks for the comment, anyone else?
