        Hmm, well, in the games I've played (Ok, ALL two of them :(), we
had twice as many turns that we used to. All armies having air cover will
add some depth (even if it's not much).
        As far as I am concerned (as a IG player), having everybody being
stuck with my old probelm of 25-30cm command and control has givin ME more
depth, because I can play like everyone else, and not be hinded. For other
armies other than IG, I can see the problem, having to keep that windrider
host all toghter now. I think that mabye Ig havn't gone foward, but
everybody's else has been taken back to our postion. So it acts like a net
gain for me and a net loss for you. (Marine's in particlar probably).
