Default new stormtrooper stat

so i went to my local gw today and they had the new codex on display . i went through it a bit and noticed something awesome , it went like this

ap3 stormtrooper weapons - its safe to say its gona rip apart marines and whatever else has decent saves. the basic 5 man squad costed less then 100pts.

the general unit if your forming a 10 man team is a lot more expensive then previously your looking upwards 180+. they retained much of their old stats too.

couple of things that changed you have a sentinel variant with 12 frontal armor and both the 10 armor and 12 armor type have 5 str now , o and thye are cheaper i belive.

the best was the leman russ rule ... which i mostly forgot . it included being able to fire all normal weapon normally allowed even the main turret i think.

Please do not post full stat lines -AC

This is all quite old, we've known about all of this for some time now. Sentinels have always been S5. I'm not too stoked on the AP 3 considering just about everything I shoot at will be behind cover anyways. Point costs going up is not a fun thing, but at least they all get 2 attacks now from having a hellpistol + CCW as basic equipment.

They're not call Hellguns anymore. They're called Hot-Shot Laspistol/Lasgun...

They have become too expensive due to the Hot-Shot Laspistol/Lasgun. I rather have Bolter stats to be honest...

Doesn't even make sense. Hot-shot laspistol/gun always used to be +1S.

The different skills they can user are definitely cool though.

Likewise I'd just prefer a chaeper, bolter toting stormtrooper, but it's not all bad. High volume AP3 firepower is always nice. It's a smart choice by GW to rename the weapon though and avoid all the complaining that would come their way for inquisitorial stormtroopers having the same weapon with a worse stat-line. Now it's technically a totally different weapon...

Fair point; they make good DSing/Outflanking Anti-MEQ.

A storm trooper with a HSLG also costs 18 points each.

And is only range 18"

I use my SS as a CC squad. I'm not that excited that they cost more points, but I do like that they come with a pistol + CCW as well as those nifty special rules. So I don't mind paying a little extra for those bonus attacks and the ability to reroll scatter for disembarking form a Valk
