If you plan on deep striking via drop pod all your marines is there really a need for the jump packs. It makes them 7 pts cheaper and even though you lose 6" worth of movement if you have drop podded them in would it make that much of a difference. It wont make any difference to thier attacks.
Its for my Raven Guard army and i already have five marines all done up with lightning claws for shrikes wing. Plus those seven points less could mean i get more and more marines in there.
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
up till the part when you mentioned you play raven guard i was gonna say that assualt squads ex-jump packs are a waste of fast attack slots...cause there not fast ^^,
but the tactic you've said,does seem a legitimate way to save on unnecassary points,i guess a drop pod could do the job of getting them into the thick of the fighting.but after they take out whatever squad they first hit,there gonna be footslogging there way to the next target,not a good idea to have precious assault troops slogging it across the board.
INNOCENCE IS NOT IMMUNITY
Well i hate to burst your bubble. I have been down this trail of thought before. It won't
work. Sure it's cheaper to take off the jump packs. But you can't drop pod Assualt marines.
With or without jump packs. Sorry. If you need proof read page 21 of the Space marine
codex. Assualt marines aren't mentioned as one of the units that can take pods. Even
on page 36 of the codex they can't have transports.
But fear not! Veteran squads can be equipted to handle the job and have a Pod too,
for 10 points more than you would have spent on an assualt squad with furious assualt
and no jump packs in a drop pod. Plus you can add power weapons to the mix! :w00t:
