I don't frequent this forum a whole lot, so sorry if this has already come up.
From 5th ed, the revised rules for transports allow you to buy a transport for one unit, but said transport is also allowed to transport other units as well. However, a unit cannot start the game off inside another unit's transport.
Example, you buy a rhino or chimera for ISTs. You deploy the ISTs somewhere, and the tranport vehicle somewhere else. You can deploy your PAGKs behind the rhino, and they can hop in the first turn. (They just can't start the game in the Rhino)
Hope that helps your strategies.
This will be a real boon late game to get GK to objectives, but I can't see them wanting to be in a transport instead of shooting stormbolters for the early turns.
Yep if were to belive all thats been said about the new rules this looks good somewhat. Also its going to be last man standing not below 50% as it is atm for taking/contesting objectives. Our justicars are gonig to have a feild day
it isnt as much appealing for gk to have a rhino
first we cant dakka dakka (or rapid fire)
it removes the ability to use our storm bolters (as stated earlier)
it removes our advantage of shrouding
on the other hand
we have a chance to gain a strategic point early on and at the end
we can save a load of points instead of a crusader with sooked up weapons being destroyed by melta weapons
we can make more use of incinerators
Ill believe it when I see it, this still doesnt help pure GK lists anyway.
Why they werent given rhinos as a transport option in the first place is beyond me....
GK's are too expensive to risk putting into a tin can and risk getting entangled and useless for a turn. You're better off leaving the Rhinos to the ISTs and letting the GKs dakkadakka.
Don't bother having anything more than meaningless small talk on this forum, the moderators won't allow it
Entangled is gone in 5th.
Still, only use them to save that last GK from giving up a KP or to grab objectives on turn 5/6.
Not to mention the fact that you still have to take a Inq Lord or IST's to get one.
This still isnt any good for pure GK player (Like myself), Unless by some mircale GW add rhino's as a transport option in the FAQ in july.
On a funny note, if someone does this they should paint their rhino as a taxi, because thats what its going to become for DH, lol.
