yeah, if trees are going to be used i see them being really crowded with brush or more trees. Thing is, if ANY of the model can be seen... it can be shot now. Kind of annoying as far as re-tooling our terrain goes.

On a side note, you think about running your army as actual Black Templar again? They are set to be completely terrifying until their codex gets redone (a.k.a a long ass time)

Definitely. I used them as BT's in 4th as well. Just not so much cause our group tends to powergame, and they don't hold up so well.

That said, I don't think they are going to be that crazy in 5th. I just think they are going to be better than all the other Marines, you know cheap drop pods 2 ass cannons and all that crap.
You got to figure they are pretty marginal against most armies now. While 5th will give them a few benefits, I still think they will suffer from a lot of the 4th issues.

Ork Hordes, Bugs, and Eldar will still give them fits.

3 squads of SB Assault Terminators with RZ, the new run movement, and some Vows does sound pretty interesting.

Not sure man, large squads of scoring troops (who can whittle down two squads of 20 MEQ's to nothing?) add run and their righteous zeal, and you get one of the fastest armies in 5th (for all footsloggers) and they pack a bunch of nasty once they get there.

Oh and to top it all off, you can give the entire army Preferred Enemy... in 5th, that means they ALL re-roll misses in close combat. If that doesn't make them a top tier army, not sure what does.

Oh I hear you.

Try chasing (RZ) jet bikes, super cheap rhinos, and now little harassing units that come in from the side edge around all game.

No more extra CCW attacks for PF. No Terminator Honors for Vet. Sgt\'s, the new counter charge deal, and most importantly, No consolidating into new units.

They will be cool, I totally agree, but top tier I don\'t know.

I think we are supposed to be talking about terrain. Silly us. Laughing
