    Wow terribly disappointed in assassins Callidus is getting hit hard because for the eversor counter attack will only work with its high number of attacks, and its bio meltdown is great.
    Death cults can be only taken one at a time so who cares if she gets mobbed aslong as i dont have to take 200 saves im ok.
    Thanks for the guide, i looked at it all. Holocaust should work a bit better right?

    I'm not sure what a FTP link is but i hope this helps
    Perhaps you have your firewall blocking the PDF loading?

    FYI: The document is a "living" document, and I have one factual error that is going to be cleared up ASAP. (Iron Will means that the squad will take wounds as though Fearless, as Iron Will effects is covered by No Retreat!) So it may be worth checking back once in a while to see what gets corrected, changed, and added.

    I'm glad y'all like it!

    Hi, thanks for the article I thought it was good. Only factual thing I noticed was for the Land Raider (non crusader variety). According to the DH errata on the GW website, machine spirit is now working differently, and as far as I can tell you would now get 2 LC moving up to 6 inches at full BS, or 1 LC at 12 inches or shaken/stunned. And the extra can be at a different target. They also seem to count as assault vehicles which could prove quite useful. Do you think this makes LR more worth their points? Cheers.

    Well I don't thinkthey knew about the FAQso it needs updating really to the FAQ.
    No it doesn't make them worth more points it just means the old rules have been fixed. As to what i think on their ability, it makes them alot more versatile which Land Radiers are for, not just anti tank. Atleast thats what i think they are designed to be i.e. Space Marines are strong all round, but do not focus on one paticular area like firing or close combat.
    I might write like a ork but i fight like a poet.
    Some one tell me they have ever seen a nightbringer die from a Nemesis Force Weapon.

    Actually, I do think raiders can be worth their points. In 4th edition, it was all about maximizing your unit count in general. But in my 5th edition games so far, provided I have a solid core of Troops, I have much more freedom to take other units that I wouldn't have use so much of previously.

    And land raiders are among them. We usually play 1750 pt games in my group, and I can totally afford a pair of raiders and 4 GK squads and some terminators, which is a list I would never have tried under 4th edition. It works out OK in 5th.

    I just think the game dynamics have changed so much -- and for the most part, for the better -- that I've seriously rethought most of what I took for granted with this army.
