Non-Codex Marines in Killzone
I am wondering if the non-Codex chapters of Space Marines should have more freedom to show their unique style in Killzone. I have been really focused on trying to keep the scenarios and teams balanced, that I may be handicapping the flavor of the non-codex chapters.
I have to thank AbusePuppy for bringing this up in the Space Marine Errata comments.
If you look at the Killzone force building guidelines you will see the following restrictions.
A team may contain no more than two models with 2+ armor saves.
A team may contain no more than two models with Jump Packs.
A team may contain no more than two bike, jetbike or cavalry models.
These are the three restrictions I am debating making mutable for the different non-codex Chapters.
Blood Angels may forgo the option to take two bikes; this will allow them to take two more Jump Pack equipped models. Increasing them to a total of four Jump Pack models.
Space Wolves may forgo the option to take two Jump Packs; this will allow them to take one additional Bike/Cavalry models and one additional 2+ armor save model. Giving them a total of three in both categories.
Dark Angels may forgo the option to take two Jump Packs; this will allow them to take either two additional 2+ armor saves or two additional bike models. It will allow the force to feel more Deathwing or Ravenwing like depending on the choice made.
I am open to suggestions on Black Templars should we follow this route to fruition.
So these are my initial ideas, what do you guys think? Good idea or Bad?
