Of all the things that I have heard for the new system, the new packaging of
blisters and units is one of the things I strongly approve of. And the
reworking of the flyer rules to the DS2 fly by way. I was always annoyed
that it was possible for some land units to go faster then flyers. It'd be
great to build up say termies or say howling banshees, rather then buy heaps
of unwanted guardians again. I have so many normal marines and guardians
it's not funny.
