The plasma cannon is really phallic!

It's not a bad thing. It just looks like it has a penis on its turret.

It is better than the Forge World conversion kit...



I would be afraid to own the thing since Mrs. PhillyT would probably bring it into the shower with her and ruin the paint job.
Where did she touch you Eight? Show us on the doll.

Better not derail this thread into the back table though!

Surely Mrs Philly wouldn't be getting excited by a 2 inch turret.... Even if it gets hot.

Ask Mrs. Philly if she likes my microdick.






Cheap hydras!




Fucking magnets, how do they work?

I personally like the dirty look of the tanks, gives the impression of being stuck into a campaign.

are Hydras even better now with the proliferation of flyers?

Unless it's changed recently, it can only snap fire at anything that isn't a flier. Because it has 'skyfire' but not 'interceptor.'

That is correct.  Hydras are pretty useless vs ground targets, so their usefulness changes considerably depending on if the enemy are likely to have any flyers.  I have no idea if this is a deliberate decision or an oversight. 

I own a forge world one, its not taken part in any games, primarily because most of my group no longer own any flyers, as they sold them!  I own more flyer modes in my armies than all my opponents combined.

It's funny, because it has a special rule that negates 'jink' saves on skimmers... too bad it can't hit them very easily!

Ha ha, who knows! They've had plenty of time to change it though.

Plus it is meant to be a dedicated AA gun, so it kind of makes sense.

Still, you get four shots, twinlinked.  So you should get at least one hit, on average, even against ground targets.  It also has a hull heavy bolter.  It is very cheap for what it is too.

It was definitely too cheap for what it could do under the old rules. It's only about 75 points I think? So maybe still worth having.


Returning to the subject of the thread, I've just noticed that the spare sponson weapons are stored on magnets under the tank. Clever!

If you donít want to take a flyer of your own, or an Aegis tank, then they are probably worth it. Still, strength 7 vs a storm raven might not be too much fun, and vendettas are so cheap.

Three twin lasers. Can hit ground or air stuff. Armour 12 front and side. 130 points. Hmmmm!

Points hike for vendettas please.

Well they do work well against skimmers under 6th edition.

I seem to remember it hits skimmers normally, I might be getting it wrong though.

It just says 'skyfire' and 'no jink saves' in the errata.

My brain hurts. Judging by what I've seen, taking two hydras is probably not a bad idea anyway when everyone is taking flyers and I can't be bothered to shell out £50 for a valkyrie. Right?

Moving on: God damn forgeworld. The middle sections were so thin and flimsy I was unsure if they were just more flash, and they were all shaped like bananas.




Still, they were cheaper than buying accessory sprues with track guards for £8 from GW.

WIP autocannons made from scavenged bits and old pewter.




Slightly more finished heavy bolter teams:




I've tried to squeeze some semblance of variation out of the models, but it ain't easy.
