    BT's, Rhinos or big troop squads?

    Should a BT army use Rhinos to get troops into battle or should they use big troops squads, like 10 inits and neos? I was thinking that having big troops squads may mean you start screaming up the board like a looney when you start getting shot, but then there's a chance that you could get blown away before you even get to the enemy. Also, the distance you run isn't always a sure or definite thing. If you Rhino rush however you don't have potentially have as many troops to smash the enemy with when you're in combat. Has anyone done the math on this one?

    def rhinos...i love getting into close combat in the second or third turn as opposed to foot slogging across the board taking fire

    I'd say take the big squads. Not only is it 50 attacks on the charge (guaaaaggghhh), being at twice the size means that you are half as likely to be wiped out in one go as a 10 man Initiate Squad. They simply take hits and keep moving forward. It's hard to stop an assault of that magnitude, even with Terminators.
