I have a ton of SM footsloggers + 2 dreadnaughts. I'm thinking it's time to buy some vehicles but have a very limited budget. Given a budget of $100-150 and assuming 20% off retail from most on-line stores, what vehicles would you recommend buying to provide overall list building and playing flexibility?
For example, Rhinos would be good for each squad, but for the $, I'd rather pick up a Land Raider and magnetize the weapons and sponsons. Land speeders would be a nice Fast Attack option, but $-wise they're pretty pricey unless I can find a really good deal on e-bay.
I'd say a Heavy Support choice, either Land Raider if you want to combine it with transporting, or one or two Predators and giving your army a slightly harder punch. Now, I'm Swedish so I don't know how many of anything 150$ is going to get you, but speaking from personal experience you can't go wrong with Predators.
Well, you can get around 3-4 tanks depending on what you buy. Most of the actual tanks barring Rhinos and Razorbacks go for 40$, and Land Raiders are 50-55$.
I personally thing that you shouldn't buy Rhinos. If you want to buy troop-transports, buy Razorbacks instead. That way, if you keep the top-hatch unglued, you can always simply turn it into a Rhino. The same goes for all the other Space Marine tanks barring the Land Raider since that uses a different chassis.
A Land Raider Redeemer goes for $50 and the Predetor kit is $40, so $72 with the typical on-line discount. Could probably either pick up another vehicle or the lascannon sponsons for the standard Land Raider.
Why not both?
Unless you intend to get the standard Land Raider completely, you should be able to afford another vehicle and order the sponson bits online. Those twin-linked lascannons shouldn't cost 30$!
Seriously, you need to pick one or two of these up. They're tough, compact, aggressive little buggers that pack a hefty punch and they're easily one of my favourite units in this codex.
With a Siege Shield and Extra Armour, they'll go anywhere you want and shrug off almost everything your opponents throw at them.
Dont forget that a lot of those are designed off of a rhino chassis. I've seen some sweet whirlwind mods using a rhino and some bic pen tubes. Would only take a little extra effort to make the "whirlwind launcher" detachable so you can have your rhino back when you want it. Also the razorback would be great spend some of your budget on magnets and you can switch out whichever turrets you want or go turretless for a rhino. With both of those you could have a whirlwind and razorback or whirlwind and rhino or two rhinos or two razorbacks or even two whirlwinds if you wanted all for around 70-75 bucks after buying some magnets and greenstuff.
that son of a b**** is dead'ard. 5" blast that has bs4 behind it? yes please. i'd even recommend you buy the 'terrain restructuring force' (what i call the 3 vindicator apoc formation). 3 pie plates against one of the 5th ed infantry-heavy armies?
splat. splat. splat.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
