Default What is the difference...

Hey all,

What is the difference between the space marine tactical squad and the space marine combat squad? Is the only difference the amount of marines you get or is there something else?

Thanks in advance.

If your talking about the box sets you buy, then the difference of the 10-man squad is that you also get heavy weapons and a sarge.

The combat squad box comes with 5 standard marines. No sarg, no special/heavy weapons, no cool shiny bitz. The Tac box is only about 60% more, and you get twice the number of models, plus special weapons, heavy weapons and a sarge. In my opinion, get the tac box over the combat squad any day.

The cool thing about space marines is that it's incredibly easy to modify and create weapons for them from scratch. In response to the above question, there is no difference ingame, but moneywise/amount you are getting there is (As pointed out above).

I make most of my heavy weapons out of misc pieces; can't tell the difference, which is why I included that in my response .
