WS5 / BS3 / S4 / T3 / W1 / I6 / A2 / Ld8 / Sv5+
*That stat looks decent enough and promising.*
Add in two power weapons and a 5+ Inv Save.
*Okay, you have my attention.*
To make it more interesting, this dude has access to some dedicated transport choices.
What if, you get all of the above for the cost of a 4th Edition Space Marine?
*Wow, that's awesome! But it'd probably only play the role of shock troops.*
Alright, how about this? There are a few IC standing around that gives -1 Toughness to all enemy units in the first round of assault, and on certain condition that particular IC can also provide +1 Strength to his unit.
*Dude, are you kidding me?*
Hmm...I don't think that's enough. Why don't we allow this dude access to Land Raiders and Stormravens too?
Don't you think it's a bit fragile? Lets give this close combat specialist the option to include some guys with Power Weapon/Storm Shield and give them the same cost. Shouldn't be a big problem, right?
*Hey, I think we should stop here.*
I have another great idea, let's create an IC that allows this dude as Troops choices.
Lesson of the Day: Always look at the bigger picture.
