    Cameleoline question/comment

    Is it just me, or is cameleoline now the best doctrine in the army?

    Since almost all terrain now gives a 4+ cover save, any unit with cameleoline obscured by it gets a 3+ cover save. That's better than having power armor! It seems like something they'll 'fix' in the new codex, but as it stands, I can't see a reason not to use it in every list.

    Does anyone see a problem I'm not noticing?

    and then add the going to ground save on that for a nice 2+ save. Guards with terminator armour minus the invul save.
    Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?

    Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?

    Cameleoline is definitely a very good Doctrine, and was even in 4th. I'd be careful with making too exclusive use of it, though; i.e., find ways to model it without spending too much cash. Once the new IG codex ends up rolling around (likely not too long), cameleoline will be a thing of the past. So use it while you can, I would just be hesitant to completely redo an army for it.

    Oh yeah MackDawg, don't forget another nice little item called Cyber-Enhancements. Granted it's only a +6 invul. save. But it's still alot cheeper to go with guardsmen armed with those two doctorines for abit cheaper price. Then again I could be mistaken, but it still ain't something to laugh at.

    If it doesn't work with the Emperor. Then it's been officially Karmooned!!!

    Really, a 6+ invulnerable is a horrible investment, especially as you have to pay a good deal in order to get it. I suggest sticking with more Guardsmen.

    Chameleoline is nice, but consider the overall per unit cost and I wonder if it might be better to just add a remnant squad or extra HW squad...

    just a thought. But I DO agree with you that it IS a boon and might have to be looked into.


    peace.
