I wasn't sure how to price this, so I started at 300. You get a bunch of bonuses, but loose transport capabilites, so I figured its a fair price, especially when compared to the "wonderful" Terminus.

the land raider command vehicle is called the prometheus.
what you have created is a command bunker, not the rapid assault vehicle land raiders are.
sorry, but that's how i feel about it.

A land raider with las cannons is hardly a rapid assault vehicle, a crusader fits that title more closely.
The Land Raider was originally made to be a heavy transport. They provide cover fire for their squad that they unloaded.
Its protection, combined with its transport capacity (10 marines in power armour or 5 Terminators), would make it a perfect mobile bunker, except for the lack of firing ports for passengers.
This is true, but all Land Raiders are supposed to be transports.
The Land Raider MkIII Crusader was released in September of 2000 as a close assault version of the Land Raider geared towards transporting more troops
This idea is pretty cool...but it need a lot, a lot of refinement.
My messenger program runs all of those at once, so I'm always on. Hit me up, lets talk about 40k and life.

I am accepting commissions for Forgeworld building. I know many of you may love Forgeworld, but I'd just love to get my hands on something just to build it, you can keep it. You don't even have to pay me! Just for the product!

According to the IA rules above, it doesn't have a transport cap. listed, so it has none.
Sweet emperor, you are right, sorry about that, always thought it was an hq transport option. now i have to tweak my army lists again.
That being said, a land raider with las cannons is hardly a rapid assault vehicle, a crusader fits that title more closely.
well maybe not a rapid assault vehicle, but an assault vehicle nontheless. it even sais so in the unit entry.
may i ask why you want to use a landraider as its base? and not hide the rhino variant behind a large rock to avoid being shot at.
