Im sorry for the confusion on that, the fact of the matter being that they effectively can move up to 9 inches and are still super squishy.

I see alot of pie plates coming your way.......but it's still mass......Railguns cut through things pretty decent.

440pts for APCs Shocked

..don't forget that any APC can transport any unit that will fit.

The skimmers will be easy targets and with having a low Front score...easy to pop.

Marc - The problem I have with the XV88s is that even with slow and purposeful they can be taken out real quick. Its a matter of taste and how you play.

CJ - DP's and moving over 6 inches gives me a glance sure they can still destroy the vehicle but I will take my chances, And with me running the two RH behind the DF it allows me to do a modified FoF which can work depending on the armies I am fighting against.

As an IG player while I hate Pie-Plates the Hammer Head is the preferred target. Broadsides with shield drones take forever to kill, it is sickening. While multiple Basilisk shots almost always eat Hammer Heads by turn 2.

With my Inquisition I would probably prefer fighting Broadsides since with power weapons I'd have the edge when locking them up.


Solidly with you on the style of play bit. It doesn't matter how game effective a model is if its strength adds little to the force.

What about a Sky Ray? Two network markerlights will shine giving a -2 cover save to a particular unit.
