I LOVE the book, starship troopers. And playing SM and IG, I have always felt that this element is really lacking (jumppacks, heavy weapons, one-man-armies).
So what happens? GW releases the PERFECT starship trooper unit... as another race. Great.
Seriosly, the new TAU race = starship troopers.
So, now, would it be ok for me (new to 40k, used to play epic) to field an imperial guard starship trooper unit? Meaning = tau suits with humans in them, possibly backed up by other IG forces (or SM).
Of course, in matter of fact I already have a home made codex for the M.I. They pertty cool ya know. Just go to google and do a search for:
Codex: Mobile Infantry
it gives you all those cool suits and stuff you would want. And by the way I too am a starship troopers fan :w . I agree, the books are awsome. So far I have only read the starship troopers that was formed by the movie(with the SST movie sceen in front). It too is a good book, havnt read any others yet though.
When goblins blow themselves up its stupidity. But when humans blow themselves up its bravery....odd isn't it
You should check out the original, it's a solid book
Just as a side note, I like starship troopers - but can't stand tau!! They're just too robotish (yes, its my new word)/japanese anime for me... therefore I always have to rush them as fast as possible and destroy them all so they can be taken off the board and out my sight :rolleyes: haha
Too bad you can't get atomic bomb-lauchers...
yeah a Y rack on the back of your storm troopers would be awsome. I think that would look a lot like a one of those terminators with the Missile launchers on their shoulders though.
