I know this might infringe on Wickys other post about transports with scaling nets but I realized something with this phenomena of putting any foot group into a raider.
What about making a 10 man squad with 2 blasters and 2 darklances - they get picked up by a raider. Now, the raider can fire 2 blasters and the raiders darklance to fire 3 dark matter shots if it moved or fire 2 blasters and 3 darklances (5 dark matter shots) if they dont move.
Guys, prepare to get our squads "adjusted" - they will have to change the rules of how many assault and heavy weapons we are allowed to have - they have too if you think about it. They might not change our squads special rules or abilities but as for making us take 1 special weapon for every 10 warriors is a big possibility.
Just an opinion on a rumor but it does make one think
Well GW could just keep Raiders dedicated just for our army.
But yeah, I agree with you since the days of 3rd Ed when Scourges with lances could be mounted on a Raider for a total of 5 matter shots also, this has been viewed as overpowered.
Taking one support weapon per squad aligns us towards the Eldar so I don’t like this one bit!
Oh dear, what are we in for with the new Dex?
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I think that is the greatest fear with the new dex... what they will change and how it will effect our army list selection... the easy way for them to initially get around this would be increase the minimium size of footslogger squads...
I have always found though that gunboat sqauds can be quite nasty anyway... more when facing guard than other armies as at least those lasguns can't hurt raiders, if I am not mistaken that is the only shooting weapon that can't! lol
The idea of non dedicated transports is quite nice as every so often you find that one squad getting isolated with its transport downed. I guess when the new rules come out and if we will see non dedicated transports we will be able to use this to our advantage until our new dex comes out.
Still don't think that I am a fan of the scaling nets though... for me the points it costs is not really worth it as I still think of Raiders as a delivery system rather than a battlefield taxi...
There is nothing more annoying when your Wyches with Plasma Grenades get "Always strikes First" for their combat drugs!
I aint talk'n about the new 'dex - I am talking about the FAQ we are getting in July. I don't see how they can not change our troop structure.
I agree that GW probably should make some adjustments to the DE list with 5th Edition... but I will also say that it's entirely possible that we'll be ignored and slip through the cracks, like we normally do. If we look at it from GW's point of view, how worthwhile is it for them to release and errata or new DE FAQ that will probably only be in effect for less than a year (until we see the new Codex) and is for an Army played by less than 5% of their customer base?
Still.. it could happen... but until it does, I'll be dreaming of a Raider firing 5 S8 Lances.

That does sound very very wicked Kwi.
I might have to try it. Although it does mean that you will have less raiders in the air over all as the warriors will be taking up the space of one of our raider squads on the FOC. This i feel is a bit of a negative.
It is a pity theat scourges ca't be loaded on transports due to their wings. Although it still doesn't raise their life expectancy much.
OT: When a new dex is released they will change our structure. Good bye two seperate selections (warrior and raider) hello one raider selection with optional raider.
PS: Wicked-Kwi might have to take over from grumpy-kwi!
