(Crapy fluff)

Created by the Glorious Fist in M39 by Techmarine Artemis, the vehicle has started fieldtesting. This vehicle has not yet been approved by the adeptus mechanicus however the Fists have gotten results with it and for now they keep continuing using it. (Under close supervision of several Ordos)

Bs Front Side Rear Points
4 13 11 10 110

Equipment:
-Turret mounted Twinlinked Missillelauncher (Frag/krak)
-Search light
-Smokelaunchers

Options:
It may take Heavyboltersponses at 10 points Lascannon Sponses at 25 points or missile launcher sponses at 15 points

It may also take the following upgrades:
-Power of the Machine spirit: 30
-Hunterkiller missille: 15
-Extraarmour: 15
-Pintlemounted stormbolter: 10
-Dozerblades: 5


So give some coments and maybe some field testing results.

Yes 1 missille each with unlimited range, krak only.

Gw is making extra armour 15 points at the moment so thats why i already put it their as 15 points.

You'd expect something called 'Hellstorm' to have something to do with flames...

i had an idea the same as this but it was still in the brainstrom phase so here what i thought

a regular rhino that can be fitted with 1-10 hunter-killer missiles at about 15pt each and is the same as a flyer in that you can fire all of them at the same time but once there gone there gone and the rhino automatically has the AA rule

p.s. the name hellstorm seems awfully familiar :o

It sounds better than Predator Missilleer.

BTW youre idea seems more like a Whirlwind version if you ask me.

Missilleer?
How about Rocketeer instead?

Whirlwind Hyperios rather.

Keep the name for later now.

What about the tank itself. Pointcost/ etc etc.

I also like the idea of a Rhino loaded with a mess of H/K missiles. I see it as a conversion of desperation. More H/K's lying around than vehicles, a skilled Techmarine, and a need for some heavy support that for some reason isn't available at the moment.

Sounds good, I'd say that the points you have are good. I'd add the option to take normal missile launchers for sponsons aswell.

If it's a basic points cost you're looking for maybe +10 or +15 on the Predator's base cost?

I also like the HK rhino :)

I picked a nice point cost between the Destructor and the Annihalator. (Not to mention that the missille launcher sponse upgrade fale in between as well.)

I like the Idea of this tank. I agree that i would like it to have regular ML on the Side and not HK's I would say that are the same points as a Las C, just so that people wont sweat ya over it. I would also say that a Pred full of Missile ammo would blow up pretty big if it got hit in the wrong spot..... Maybe on a 5 or 6 it would blow up big on a Pen....


Not sure about a name.

So normal Missille launcher it is then.

As for blowing up i'am not sure, that would be somewhat pointless. Just like that overload on the Landraider terminus. (Make that tank on a datafex again and remove it i would say)
