Vanguard moved to elites and assault squads and dedicated transports moved to the fast attack slot, while Baal predators moved to heavy support.
Dropped 5 points and retained overcharged engines to be a fast vehicle. As solid as ever, though I suspect drop pod lists may be more favourable this edition. Like with space wolves, the rhino is now a fast choice and the dedicated transport slot has disappeared.
Net drop in points as although the base cost went up 10, the upgrades became cheaper. The Razorback is still a decent halfway between transport and tank and with smaller squads will be worth considering. Note that assault squads can no longer swap out their jump packs for a razorback, only a rhino or drop pod.
Same as the codex equivalent and now a fast choice. I think pods will be popular either for allies, terminators or small squads of marines with melta / flamer weapons.
No change from before and points in line with codex marines. These chaps will probably struggle when competing with the other fast attack slots sadly
The humble assault squad had now been relegated to fast attack. losing obsec isn't such a big deal but the inability to run an all jump pack list is a huge change and a sad one to be honest. I'm keeping fingers crossed that Exterminatus will provide datasheets / detachments to rectify this. With furious charge as standard now, large jump squads are a reasonable choice. they retain access to meltaguns unlike their codex friends, as well as plasma guns and their special pistols. Not grav pistols though. They may remove jump packs for a free rhino or drop pod, but no longer a razorback. Importantly, minimum squads can take 2 special weapons and sergeants can take dual pistols. I can see drop pods with 5 marines packing 4 melta or flamer weapons being a popular choice here.
Points are now costed in-line with code marines and they also gain access to grav weapons. I think small bike squads tooled up with grav or melta (and or course being relentless with furious charge) will be the other dominant FA slot choice.
Attack bike squad:
Same as before aside from furious charge of course. I have a soft spot for my pair of multi-melta attack bikes and will continue to use them for tank hunting. However, there are probably much better choices for that in the FA slot now so I doubt attack bikes will get much of a look in.
Scout bike squad:
Once again, all points are now in line with codex marines and the only real difference is the availability of ranged weapons Blood Angels have and furious charge.
