Scouts...do all kinds of things that normal marines can not do...
like die in droves to EML plasma missiles
There's nowt wrong with the humble tac marine. My gripe with marines in general is that they receive a disproportionate amount of attention/codex space compared to the combined other races. yes, yes - I know that marines make up more than 50% of GW sales worldwide, but that dont mean I have to like em.
With regards to the flying tank thingy, I think the rules are wack, inasmuch as yes, its a fast transport, but does that mean it has to be the fastest, shootiest, most acerific transport in the game? (apart from the Shoebox, but we dont talk about that...)
I also think its a fugly model, but then, I'm an eldar player, where swoosh is the name of the game. This thing is the anti-swoosh...
