I'm eager to meet you and play a few games. Over the summer, I've built a Dark Angels successor chapter with an Inquisitor Lord and Sisters from the WH rulebook as Allies. I was paging through the new SM Codex this afternoon and my gaze fell upon Kayvan Shrike. His Chapter Tactics rule replaces the 'Combat Tactics' rule with 'Fleet'. This intrigues me, as I've been eaten alive by 'Nid armies with the Fleet of Whatever rule before... the best I could do was stand my ground, fire, and wait to be overrun. And I swiftly lost objectives to dug in bugs.
I'm thinking about rebuilding the list, but am fond of the DA's codex rule that allows the bike squads to place teleport homing beacons for my termies (Ravenwing).
Maybe I'll get me a fig to represent ol' Shrike and find out if I like it better this way. What do you all think? IMHO this makes a SM army of the vanilla variety vastly more maneuverable, but this might only be in my head.
