Please, if you want to insult me, do it to my face (ie e-mail me, we don't
need to be insulting each other on the list) instead of as a side note to

Why can only squats and eldar buy 2 companies?

Whoa, now you lost me, but what does money have to do with it? Everyone
had to buy multiple boxes of plastic to get a company of anything (except
land raiders).

I can see that, but what makes less sence is that the goliath can move if
need be, it can't fire if it does, but it can move... you'd think that
thing should be anchored in the ground more than the thunderfire... we
always played it as the thunderfire for that reason...

Sure it's cheaper, but i fail to see how it's better the IG one will hit
on a 2+ with a -3 save or you can split them up right? With the goliath
you can't and most people speread stuff out as best they can so it's often
not worth taking for one big shot.

No because regardless of the ability to re-roll ones, squats troops aren't
really good in HtH and ince you have to take a company of non mobile
troops of each of the tree types, i think most people just buy them and
rhinos in support cards because most people only want the thunderers. I
don't really think the others are worth it... at least they never were
when i used them.
