Hi guys

Does anyone know the official fluff on how many marines crew a standard land raider and a rhino?

Originally (as in 1st and 2nd Ed), it was a driver and one gunner for each weapon. So 2 for a Rhino and 4 for a Land raider.

When the vehicles got new models and a bit fleshed out background (as well as the rules mechanics changing to the crew not really mattering as much), it got changed to one Tactical marine handling the Rhino and, and one plus a Techmarine for the Land Raider.

sweet thanks for that

means even though my world eater units are not in 8's all of the WE marines on the board inc crew add up to 24 which is a multiple of 8, heh hurrar.

Mind you, in the original fluff in 1st edition, both Rhinos and Land Raiders had auto-drive, auto-aim and auto-facilities systems, and could operate entirely autonomously.

And in the current background, Land Raiders still have the ability to function entirely (if not to maximum capability) under the control of their Machine Spirits.

But yes, in the current background, the Rhino has one crew, and the Land Raider has two (one Marine, one Techmarine).
