Rhinos are Dedicated Transports and cannot be purchased separately. Units that are allowed to purchase Dedicated Transports will have the words in bold in their entry. Take a look at the Troops section on page 134, and you will notice that the Tactical Squad has this entry while scouts do not. This would mean that the scouts cannot purchase a Rhino.
A Scout army is fun. I won't ask you to change your army composition as it would seem you intend to play with Scouts, so I'll just share some experience I've seen with Scouts.
Firstly, their stats are lower than regular Space Marines, so they will have problems shooting and fighting. Their weaker armour save is also a liability in close combat. However, since your whole army is Scout based, you probably won't notice this too much.
Secondly, their 4+ save means that they are vulnerable to Heavy Bolters and Heavy Flamers. Since a lot of armies can take these, be wary of moving them in the open.
For your Chapter Master, you may want to get him a Relic Blade, and forget about Melta Bombs. In general while Melta Bombs are fun, they are pretty hard to use.
Firaya is correct (I seem to say that a lot lately) in that you'll appreciate a Relic Blade one hell of a lot more than Melta bombs.chapter master, power weapon, melta bombs 145No camo cloaks make scouts die. 3+ cover save FTW!5 scouts, sniper rifles, heavy bolter 85
5 scouts, bolters, missile launcher 85Swap the melta bombs and power weapon for a power fist, it's a lot more flexible.5 scouts, combat blades, power weapon, melta bombs 95Drop these - you don't need 4 troops choices, and scouts are a bit piss weak in CC.9 scouts, combat blades, power weapon, melta bombs 147You can'trhino - im not sure if i can legaly take thisTake 3 grenade launchers for these - krak grenades have a lot more punch than bolter rounds.3 scout bikers, power weapon, melta bombs, cluster bombs 100Goodland speeder storm xx
Use any remaining points on: camo cloaks, the relic blade + power fist upgrades, more scout snipers, more scout bikers and finally weapon upgrades for the storm.
