@ilaunchbury I was wondering the same thing when I was reading that. It seems like it's worded for BS 5+ being the higher point cost, but that seemed pretty incorrect so I went the other way.

Well
I give up
I'm done with my RG until GW decides to get thier head out of thier collective asses
Deepstrike is fucked beyond repair, and trying to use any of the following: [Jump pack units, drop pods, speeders, and infantry that aren't carrying heavy weapons] just gets you an auto-loss more or less

@Thairne that's one awesome tank. I had one very similar to it (salt water) about a decade ago
@WindstormSCR what's this nonsense of "deepstrike is fucked beyond repair"?
I mean, yeah, don't do it vs. Eldar with Forewarning
Especially if they're Dark Reapers LOL

@CrusherJoe waaaay too easy to deny most of the table leaving a useless and inconsequential spot. Deny radius needs to be reduced, and made so you can get closer but can't charge if closer than 8"

Also thats just native strikers, pods are even worse needing room for the pod and 10 guys
