We all know that it is annoying when someone asks "How much does an infantry platoon or a Leman Russ cost, and what are their abilities?" and everyone answers "How about you buy a codex?" Well, that is one thing, but what I am asking for is a little different. I'm wondering what are the armament, options, and points cost (in marines- i.e. 150pts = 10 marines) of the various Imperial Aircraft, and which ones you consider to be the most effective. I'm planning on converting an aircraft with a model plane and a veritable plethora of bitz, but quite frankly I don't want to drop 300+ dollars on forgeworld models and books. Any input is appreciated.
