121 cad for 5, which is the standard new terminator price. Still burns to see deathshroud and Phoenix terminators for 100 cad.
Their loadout tho. Split ranged weapons...the thing no one ever wants. I see why the rules got changed; not for balance as I thought it made them too good for their hq role, but because the sculpts would have forced people to pay more points just because.
Hmmm....I get your point about mixed ranged weapons, and for the cost I would expect the option for either ranged weapon in the kit. However, the fact that the Volkite is only ranged 10” doesn’t make it a significant issue. I mean, it’s only 3” longer range than your template weapons. In some ways it might be helpful to mix in some volkite, place your flamers at the front, volkite behind. Flamers fire first, volkite mops up the rest. When I’ve used flamer support squads in the past, it’s often hard to get all of them into range, for no additional cost a couple of volkites adds flavour and the ability to hit those units just out of range, plus the volkites don’t have to jostle for optimum template positioning.
I like your points about them being an efficient HQ slot though, perhaps we will see a trend in future releases.
