assault, but have no range, rapid fire, stubborn and are at -1 armor.

Actually, this has raised a question amongst our group abou the chaos
list. Why are chaos space marines of a higher point cost than Imp. Space
Marines, even though they don't have stubborn? Also noise marines 21 per
stand, devestators 20 per stand? They did reduce the points for lack of
stubborn in chaos terminators.

Finally, why the low assault values for slaneesh titans? Why are the
silver towers so weak in firepower? Why don't greater demons have
multiple wounds, to better reflect 40K abilities? I know that the points
are more or less equal to their abilities, but I thought they were
trying to make Epic units more on the order of 40K units. . .
