I readed the Advanced Orders and saw that Great box deal.
It's a 2000points, perfect for starter or for some1 that want more in his army, but they put 4 Heavy Support, that isn't the best thing for a starter

1 Land Raider
1 Predator
1 Whirlwind
1 Vindicator

Did they change the organization where you can have more than 3 Heavy Support? Maybe I miss something on the new rules...

The Land Raider can be taken as a Dedicated Transport for a Command squad or Terminator Squad. Then it wouldn't use a Heavy Support choice.

I was under the impression that a Land Raider could be taken as a transport option (for Terminator commands). I don't have the codex to hand so maybe I'm mistaken.

With the Land Raider as a Transport it make more sense. Since everyone seems to have a dedicated Trasnport in this box.

I only have the Blood Angels codex, so Land Raider wasnt a Dedicated transport, was it a dedicated one in the SM codex before?

Yes. Land Raiders can be selected as a Dedicated Transport in the Space Marine codex.

Yep, I think it is.

Besides, even if it was 4 HS choices, variety is always good ;)

For sure variety is good, it just for a starter, he get 2000pts but 4 HS choice, so cant play 2000, but if in the SM codex it a dedicated transport also, it all good...

**Think to go back to Ultramarines**

Go Crimson Fists, they're just a darker shade of blue and look infinitely cooler!

I always liked Marneus Calgar and having him on a Terminator Armor make him cooler!

True, Cortez isn't much as far as eye candy goes...

No, I think it's that last little slap in the face , or that last jam in the rear.
Because when 5th comes out no one will be buying space marine or guard tanks.

Whatevs man, they'll be even harder to crack than ever.

That an LRs are rumoured to be the only vehicle to be able to move and shoot due to PotMS

I guess I'm different from everybody. I'm first and foremost a collector (miniatures and armies) and secondly a gamer. If it underperforms, 'tuff luck, I get what I like, not what plays best (at least, not always ;)).

Is there a set price on it? Also is it confirmed that you will be getting the predator, land raider, whirlwind and vindicator?

I may be mistaken but someone told me that the price for this was going to be about $200.00 US. For what your getting its not that great of a deal. Also the whole reason GW would want to put a big armored column out is to entice people to get into Apocalypse.

I just looked at the image. There isn't a Predator in the photo, just the list of contents.
