Hey, I'm a guard player thinking about starting DH and I had a question. In some Q&A (or something, not too sure) I read that Inquisitorial Stormtroopers were more expensive because they have access to rhinos which are better than chimeras. Did rhinos get changed (in the SM book they aren't nearly as good as chimeras)? Did I read wrong?
I'd say you read wrong. Rhinos are the base transport, and Chimeras are a better version of them. I *think* they're more expensive because they get some neat stuff, namely the VetSerg can take equiptment from the DH armory.
Thanks for the help
i thought that the ST's and the IST's were the same points cost
arent they both 10 pts a model?
"I am the architect of fate!"
yea-i thought they were just about the same-stats and points. just that the DH 'troopers have more gear options.
and i go with the rhino personally, although the chimera to some is "better." i like that i could repair the rhino instead of shooting and i can get 2 more guys or 2 special weapons instead of chimera.
besides im an ultramarine player-so that way my cash doesnt get soaked up in bying two different transports when i can use one for either army i decide to play
Inquisitorial Stormtroopers are more expensive in the sense that the IG Elite ones get Krak grenades, and the Inquisitorial version doesn't. But the Inquisitorial Stormies are Troops, and have access to awesome wargear like Thunder Hammers, Combi-weapons, better Armour, and plenty of other things to make them sweeter than IG stormies.
Reading the latest BG on GW's site, I was informed that 10 man IST squad in a rhino w/ a Vet equipped w/ a TH is actually a good counterassault unit. Anyone have any experiences with this?
I've never tried that, but I like to put an Inquisitor with a power weapon and a thunder hammer with some IST's in a Chimera. The Inquisitor has a Teleport Homer and I just played a game with meltaguns for the ST's. Worked great for me!
