Default I'd like a fleet of rhinos please

did you guys hear? The latest edition of rhinos are (15 less than the old ones, 3.5 fire warriors, and 1 less than three drones) pts. (.22 MEQ kills/turn from storm bolters)

That's like 3 drones! (3.6 firewarriors)
(.36 MEQ kills/turn from twinlinked carbines)

Holy smokes! (sold separately)

I mean, seriously, to encourage people to take the rhinos over the massively efficient drop pods, they swapped the prices instead of nerfing the pods.

i think it's time for me to join humanity's finest.... maybe I'll get some love from GW then~

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

To provide an early warning system that the tau may want to take more msl pods to prepare for he surge in number of rhinos?

You can't post points costs, just so you know. Its against forum rules.

And the Rhino's 1.4 times that price anyways.

Yeah, I've actually seen people using walls of rhinos to completely block LoS to their army BEFORE the pts drop. I can see it being done with the new DA being rather effective

I hate that tactic, I'd assume it'd be absolute hell on an army with little anti-tank.

Good thing we are playing Tau, then. Rhinos are still only going to survive more than a turn by popping smoke. I can't say that this development concerns me overmuch.

Okay, I don't want to sound like an idiot here but I'm going to have to ask. What, generally speaking, are we talking about in terms of changes? I didn't fully understand the replacement equations given. I assume "Rhinos cost less and shoot stuff?"
