Review: Transport - Chaos Rhino
The humble Rhino.....Once known as the "first blood", the "death box" the "why the fuck are you using a Rhino??".
Not anymore. I love the new rules for vehicles and for transports especially. They may have doubled in points but they are also quite often one of the last models I have left on the board, a major pain in the ass for the enemy and a great L.O.S blocker in an edition where that makes a huge difference.
They are way more durable than they were before and quite nippy too. The ability to advance and still pop smokes is great for a first turn objective rush and they are more than capable of delivering their cargo where it is needed without some concentrated effort from the enemy. I would highly recommend them again for combat Chosen or Marines. They are obviously helpful for redeploying your firebase too.
I run mine at 72pts with just a combi bolter as they have a job to do and investing in more expensive weapons seems a waste. They are still a prime target but by no means are they durable enough to operate as a main battle tank, even with full load out.
I currently only 2 but as my Legion grows I will be adding one to every unit that needs it, or maybe just every Marine and Chosen unit.
