Just a quick update. As many of you know, Games Workshop updated old rules for Dark Angels and Black Templars, as well as updating some more rules for all Space Marines. This means all Storm Shields, Combat Shields, Shotguns, Power of the Machine Spirits, and (sadly) Smoke Launchers are with the current 5th edition rules, plus some other things like Cyclone Missile Launchers and Land Speeders.
What does this mean? Well, Assault Terminators are now worth using with Dark Angels and Black Templars. Maybe I won't sell off my Dark Angels and instead pick up some more troops... Hm... I'll have to see how that pans out. Most of my terminators are old and I would like to update them, but perhaps I'll hold onto the bikes. Well, enough rambling.
Another big thing (in my opinion) is Power of the Machine Spirit with Black Templars. Putting these on Razorbacks, Predators, or Vindicators would be great, better than possession by quite a bit. I'll let you Black Templar players discuss this as it is not mine to deal with.
Anyone have any big opinions here? I'm glad, even if Smoke Launchers are nerfed a bit, new Storm Shields and Cyclone/Typhoon Missile Launchers are nice.
