This is something that has been bothering me. The marines are supposed to be
mobile, but current army list puts them in the same line with IG. How about
introducing a special "unit" from AT era for marines: the transport pool. It
supplied enough rhinos to transport a company. It could be classified as a
support unit, so a player wishing to mechanize a company would have to
sacrifice heavy support for mobility. Also, since it would take a unit slot
the mechanized companies would have one infantry detachment less than foot
companies. What do you think?
