Hi I haven't played for a long long time and when I came back I noticed that the Cyclone Missile Launcher is now Heavy 2 without being more expensive. How can that be? Was it UP before? I ask because when I compare to the Chaos Terminators' Reaper Autocannon the Cyclone Missile Launcher costs only 5 points more but it has +1 in Strength, -1 in AP, longer range and it doesn't replace a Storm Bolter, which can be fired at the same time. The Reaper Autocannon is twin-linked but yet it seems wrong with only a 5 points difference. The BT Cyclone Missile Launcher even costs the same as the Reaper Autocannon. Any thoughts about this?
You also have to consider that not only are chaos marines cheaper than other varieties, you also only need a minimum of 3 terminators in the squad.
Therefore, if you cared about no other upgrades, you could get a unit of 3 chaos terminators with a reaper auto-cannon for 115 points, which is coincidentally HALF the cost of a unit of 5 space marine terminators with 1 CML.
All in all, you have to consider the costs of the units as a whole.
