I played DT quite a bit when Operation Blue Thunder came out, but haven't played it much in probably 18 months.
I'm looking to get into the game again, and, while looking at the current unit lists, it seems like the heavy infantry makes a lot of the old infantry units obsolete, particularly for the anti-armor units.
I mean, I just don't see spending 27 points on Laser Grenadiers, 22 points on Tank Killers, or even 21 points on Battle Grenadiers when I can get Heavy Laser Grenadiers for 30 points. Nor would I probably spend 22 points on Bot Hunters or 20 points on the Gunners when the Tank Busters are 30.
But all that's just based on looking at their stats.
So, in actual play, what difference have the new infantry units made? Have you noticed them displacing the older units?
