I was looking over the new book and I noticed a huge change in the point values for Space Marines. Scouts can now take the sniperrifles for free and such things. The thing I noticed though was the Predator. I personaly think it's the end of the predator anniliator. With the new rules you can get a predator with an autocannon and sponson heavy bolters for a mear 85 points, to get the twin linked laz cannons and sponsons it bumps you upto 165 points, thats 20 more points then it was before. It just turned the standard predator into a killing machine for very few points. I think an auto cannon and 2 heavy bolters is worth 85 points, what do you all think?
what do i think? i think you're not allowed to post the exact points of anything, such as you did, because it breaches copyright.
but i agree with on the pred!
Scouts now hit with sniper rifles on 4's, that's why they're free.
Transports are cheaper since GW wants you to buy more of them.
Well that makes my day ( besides the breach of the copy right thing) I run at least 2 Preds with auto cannon and heavy bolters now for under 200 pts it like christmas came early( or when the ne codex hits the shelves)

Yes, it's an amazing deal. I like the transport discount as well. GW needed to do that a long time ago. It was expensive for a bolter and that movement. As far as the preds go you cannot go wrong with anti marine tanks and anti-tank marines. It will make the world a fun place!
Back on topic. Yes the deal is extremely good. The reason a tri-las is so expensive is because of how many lascannons can be fired a turn..the thing they should have taken into consideration was the fact that you can only move and fire one O.o ..I mean..that should be enough to balance out a cost of 100 or so, in lieu of this 165 BS.
JOIN MY SQUAD IN THE SONS OF THE LIBRARIUM THREAD, I NEED TACTICAL MARINES! I PLAN TO CONVERT UP A SQUAD TO "COUNT AS" LoTD IN MY SMarine ARMY
lordsauron, you're probably correct, that's just how i remembered the forum rules.
sorry, Cheetahfurry, if i am incorrect.
I think you are right on the points but I am pretty sure you can post totals. Example is you see people posting the point value of a predator all the time in the army lists. I did not post the costs of the weapons or hint at them as it can obviously builty many different ways. I just gave a total. And I did not give the cost of the new scouts at all.
Predator at 85 pts is a steal. I would dfeinitely take it at just the basic model, as I would also take 10 Space marines with the free upgrade weapons because its so cheap. No point in upgrading
I am thinking 2x pred's with the autocannon and heavy bolters and a demolisher, say hello to a pretty sweet heavy unit core for under 300 points. Throw in 2x Dreads and you have enough armor to make iron warriors jelious.
