    Raider Squads.

    Ok, I got this idea from the Chaos Marines FAQ.

    You may take a dedicated transport if the squad that it is bought for numbers MORE than 10 due to the fact that the squad numbers may drop during the game.

    Does anyone see this as a possibility for the new Codex?

    No more ‘Raider Squads’ that is limited to only 10 models.

    Thoughts?

    In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

    They are called "Warrior Squads"

    hmm.. that would be very cool. That way we could take a nice Warrior Squad and a Raider for "in case" they drop below 10 models. Helps us get vehicles on the board without the squads.

    Genius

    I don't think it's very likely for the reasons Ooglatjama so eloquently stated. I think it's likely that GW will keep the two squads as separate entities in the next codex. Most likely this will stem from differences in equipment between the squads (crosses fingers and wishes for SP/CCW).

    Though if they decide not to make any differences in the options I could imagine the two being combined and us only having a single troop choice.

    No... If they will work on something they want to sell it. After the 5th ed. You can`t sell an army with only one troop choice. I guess they will keep the warriors split and add one more.
    Mandrakes... maybe? Wytches?
    They will keep raider squads, they are the bestsellers.

    Ok, firstly a Warrior Squad may not take a Raider, only a Raider Squad may and the difference here is numbers.

    Numbers of allowable Raiders not troops, so I fail to see the stated eloquence here.

    The point in the original post was that it would be an added option to give Dark Eldar, done by removing an existing limitation and leveraged by precident shown within another army.

    Codex power creep is a constant concern when we have stood still in a rules time warp for the past 10 years and this little trinket gleaned from the new FAQ shows that we need rules like this be keep pace with the modern game. Plus its any easy FAQ fix.

    I believe that we will get another Troops choice; we will get Raiders for ALL squads bar those with Jump Packs. And yes I can envisage Warp Beasts being transported also in the future also and as such I am optimistic that ‘when’ our new Codex is finally published for sale it surprise us all.

    Cheers.

    A good idea, but for me not very useful.
    One advantage would be the possibility of 5 man footslogging squads.

    What if they remove raider squads but allow us to split a warrior squad like combat squads and give each combat squad the option of raiders. The whole unit would be a total max 4 kp and as other combat patrols was can have the important units, special weapons units, in one raider and have the less significant in the other. No different from 2 raider squad. just the weapons of the squads will be more concentrated.

    Thoughts!

    Interesting thoughts Seeker84, but I see Combat Squads as a unique feature of Space Marine codex chapters.

    I think Wicky's theory has is highly likely. The Warrior Squad will probably be like the Raider Squad with 5-20 models and an additional long range and short range weapon available for squads numbering 10 or more models.

    Indeed, what is a Raider Squad but a squad with a Raider?

    Remove the outdated number needed to take the transport and lets have at it with 2 heavy weapons per squad!

    Cheers.
