Ork vehicles are awesome, trukk is the fastest in the game, trakks have bomb chuckas, kans have vehicle_high (same armor type as baneblade and landraider) and looted tanks are russ' with artilley fire and slightly reduced damage, of course there's the bomba which is the ultimate infantry disruptor.
Also, sm vs ig is a walkover for the IG, one of the most broken matchups in the game (along with elf vs tau, tau being the upperhand).
sm may be able to pit a horable defence but in the end the IG win. unless they spam heavy bolters. on which case your gunna have to be skilled.
yeah ig wil own sm
i believe we alrady discussed the SM versus IG.
Yes, back to the point, the IG's weakness isn't really the cap it's more of the fact that they don't even get their best variants of the leman russ. For example the Vanquisher and Demolisher tanks.
you should have a choice what your relic unit should be. the storm blade or the baneblade. we need more options. for a vehicle centered race they sure do have a limited amount of vehicels
yeah that would be cool having loads of differnt tank options but will they ever do it?
But you've gotta bear in mind balance issues, hell the game is imbalanced as it is at the moment. In my opinion IG is one of the strongest races in the game as they have very few bad matchups, if anything certain things need a nerf for example the amount of cap they get for one mech command (10) and priests fantacism.
yeah proably having a stromsword and what not would unbalance it even more
