Just been browsing through the Codexes and noticed that the Chaos Land Raider has a troop capacity 2 less than its equivalent used by the emperor worshipping dogs...
Is there any reason for this, or is it an error?
I'm gonna say its because that was the established capacity in the older Dex's for both forces and the the Chaos Dex was rewritten and it kept the older, more established capacity of 10... then they redid the SM codex and increased the capacity. The SM dex is newer than the Choas one... I could of course be wrong since I didn't start on SMs until after this newest dex.
Cerrik is correct on it it's because the marines and chaos were updated than marines got upgraded AGAIN and got the better version IMO just another glaring old codex thing
Chaos decorate everything with spikes. You can't do that AND have room for all your friends.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Yep, when the spikes are full, you have to put the skulls for the throne somewhere!
perhaps over the years and millenia, the empire has gotten a little better and feung shui (how ever the hell you spell it) and so now we can fit more bodies in it than you old crusty chaos marines (oh and being that almost all marines are significantly younger and not prone to arthritis) I would assume that the empire can simply fit in the tighter nooks and crannies : )
Slaanesh, god of the beer goggles
1 Less Terminator to be worried about I suppose...
Actually you can fit 12 (6Ts) in a chaos land raider, though two (or 1T) end up becoming shish-kebabs due to the bumpy nature of the rides (and afore mentioned spikes)
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!
I did not know the loyalist LR could carry 12/6. Looked at my friends codex and it is indeed 12/6 models, and the Crusader is 16/8 models! Chaos got really shafted over that one!
Still, as it's been said, the SM 'dex is on its 5th while Chaos is on the 4th so who knows what changes will happen when GW decide to finally make a new Chaos 'dex. Still, at least the Chaos LR is about 30 points cheaper (which is 1x Chaos Terminator - except you can't carry him!) so probably balances out somewhat - but I do like the spikes theory
All the more reason to blow up loyalist LR's if they are packed! Glory to Chaos!
