        hang on, whooa! Marines also have higher toughness and all round
better saves on average. Not a good idea IMHO.

        Going by 40K, yes, mabey, althought scouts have a tendency to be
used as cheap CC in 40K

        No idea, but yo DO get )(*& ^%$$ saveing deamons.

        IMO, no they SHOULD have save. Ever tried using 5 termi's as CC
troops when the're armed with storm bolters? Termies agaist CC troops OR
her's of any kind get blastered, they only take ages to kiill 'cause of
the save. Not their Champion-like stats.

        Elder already have this. But what's the problem with 30? Sure I
can't cover my advancing tanks/infantry very well, but arty with 2
HJydra's sitting one either side sure helps. Everybody will just have to
get SOME air cover, even if's it's 3 gargoyls to get in the way.

        IMHO, i HATE HATE HATE pop-ing up Elder anti-tank vechiles (wehich
is how they act). BUT, my Leman Russ now can survive ion anything bar a 6.
And that Tempest can get killed now by infantry if I can get close enough.
Fair enough trade off IMHO.

        Tried to kill a Warlord in his Great Gargant? 12 full shields. :(

        Mortors and Thud guns are probab;y being held over for Squats (if
ever coming out). But you are right.
