Quite a good idea, and not at all overpowering - I was afraid it was going
to be a reroll :). But I am a little concerned - the next one might be
TechMarines, Apothecary and so on. But I am guilty of that too :P Personally
I am thinking of redoing the termie - into "Devastator" termies and
"Assault" termies.

Devastator termie assumes that the termie squad has either an assault
cannon/cyclone missile launcher.

The firepower of this termie squad is set at 3 - no rapid firing allow -
actually you can rapid fire the stormbolters, but the effect is not
significant as compared to assault cannon/cyclone missile launcher. Actually
I am thinking of firepower of 4, but I am concerned that it might be a
little too much.

Of course cheeselords can take the Space Puppies all equipped with assault
cannons/cyclone missile launcher. Then firepower equal 10 ? But on a roll of
4+ the whole stand blows up :>

Assault termie assumes that the termie squad are all armed with only HtH
Assault termie adds either 1 or 2 to their assault value. If it is 1 maybe
add rampage.

I think I better stop here before I get carried away. Any comments ? And the
point value ?
