can grenaiders use rhinos as transports or are they stuck with chimeras.
Quite right - my Inquisitorial Stormtroopers use Chimerae! I fail to see why anybody would take a milk float on treads (or Rhino as some of you may know them! ) when you could have a perfectly servicable light tank with some impressive killing power when used correctly!
I imagine that people would use rhinos over chimeras since they 11 AV on the front and sides which means that str 4 guns won't be able to do anything to it and it's also much cheaper than a chimera.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
Chimera's AV 12 means heavy bolters and fire warriors can do nothing until they get a side shot.
the advantage of a rhino, is that it is much cheaper(half the price) and it has a crappy weapon, so you might as well move it the full 12, so its a strict transport, where as the chimera costs too much to move it without firing weapons
a chimera is not really a transport, its a infantry fighting vehicle, very similar to current day Strikers, and Bradleys.
you can get 2 rhino for a chimera, so thats 2 transports, that will move 12 each turn, rather than 1 transport that will probably only move 6 and fire weapons
honestly i think guard should have something similar to a current day 2 and 1/2 ton truck,
basically a 10/10/10 vehicle with a single stubber(or not if you want it cheaper), open topped, and cheaper than anything else, its annoying that if you want to do a mechanized company, you have to have a lot of expensive transports, even if you dont need/want the shooting from the vehicle.
Hellhounds are good tanks

Hmm....a couple LMTVs would be actually pretty cool. Or maybe something like a Humvee with a gunner on the hatch and four firing ports!
They really need to do a pintle-mounted grenade launcher, too.
