Do you think that the blood angles rhinos should benefit from the "fast vehicles rule" (moves over 12" and can only be glanced) because of their oce upgrade? I personnaly think this would be a great additon to the rule b/c using the oce is a gamble in itself and this would give BA Players a little more incentive to use rhinos and get back to our fluff!:yes:
Let The Blood of our enemies flow!!!
i could go for that
that would definately improve the use of the rhino, as its survivability would greatly increase...
"I have died a thousand deaths, and I will die a million more..."
by fast vehicle, i assmue you simply mean if a rhino moves over 12" then it can only be glanced (as per fast vehicle rules)?
cos yeah...that would be cool, however it would just give GW an excuse make BA rhinos more points...worth it though
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
Blood Angel's Rhino and Razorbacks suck so much that I stopped playing them and went for a core SM army!!!
65pts for what? Can't I just have a regular 50pt Rhino?

that would be a good idea...... hopefully they would add something like that in the new BA codex?... Thats if we ever get one anytime soon.. otherwise rhinos are a no-no.... best saves in the galaxy equipped with the weakest vehicles.. what a shame..
OCE need to come down to like 1/3 of their current points cost or become optional IMO. They were worth the points cost before they were nerfed, but the nerf was too severe to not reduce the cost.
The only time I use rhinos anymore are with the DC usually, as they are free.
You use a rhino with DC? Why? I'd always go for jetpack DCs.... it is much much better. I've never seen a Rhino DC heh..Originally Posted by Darguth
it's actually a great idea for 500 pt games. it's a line of sight blocker. and your dc arn't worth much anyway, as you'll probably only have 3 or 4 of them.Originally Posted by Murekhalir
if the opponent is concerned about a FREE 65 pt rhino containing a minimal amount of dc, then they have done their job. IMO, distractionary tactics for 500 pt game, only. don't even include a cahppie. they are almost half your points.
however, if the rhino is underestimated, then those crazy-a$$ dc might do a little damage before they bite it.
but as to the original statement... yes, it seems viable that it should count as a fast vehicle.
Sorry, but if you really think blood angels need any more help, then why not just petition for them to get a wang gun. s6-rend-assault 6-ap2. 20 pts, for basic tactical squad.
As it sits now, BA are the most broken of the SM armies.
In fact, why not give them the wang gun, and give the exterminatus rule. Any game they lose, roll a d6. on a roll of 2+ the planet has been deemed "Lost" and the adepts have conducted exterminatus on it, resulting in a tie, no matter how one sided the victory-it now counts as a draw.
So not only do you get ass cannons out the wazoo, 5 s, +1I usually free models in a death company, ignore wounds from narthecium, feel no pain, free movement for an assault army, but you also want more transports to get you there safer-Bah!
Sorry, but you really need to take a step back and realise that BA rules are a joke as it sits now, to give them anything else besides a huge nerf is simply inappropriate.
