You haven't done what?
Ok guys, this is a subject that we all have from time to time when friends at our (and I'm sure at your) local FLGS have with each other. Its the "Wait, you haven't used that unit?" Or "That unit is not in your normal list?" As such I figure I should put out there what my own unit is, and then hopefully hear from all of you.
For me its silly really, I -know- how good they are, I know I can get a hold of the model if i want to, but i just never seem to fit it in or think about putting it in my lists unless I am doing something really, really silly.
Its the Valkyrie/Vendetta.
I know, I know "How can you go without!?!? It's a fast transport! AND ONE OF THEM HAS TRIPLE TWIN LINKED LASCANNONS!!!!!"
Ok I get it... no need to yell... weirdos. I know its good, I know I could use it, I know I can make lists that work well with it.... but because I do not own the model I don't make the lists, and because I don't make the lists... I don't buy the model. That is besides the fact that my typical style of play (ask any of my opponents) is to turtle up as much as possible and make you come to me and deal with my gun-line, with the odd Stormtrooper squad deep striking in to cause havoc amongst your lines.
So what about you? What unit in your codex is there that you just don't seem to use, even though it is really a good unit in the codex? (I mean common I don't use Penal Legion Squads but who does? They suck.)
Until next time, burn some heretics, kill some mutants, and do it always....
FOR THE EMPEROR!
