Hello fellow Watchmen/Battle-brothers
So today I want to talk about Forge World, but more specifically three units that i have been looking at.
With Deathwatch being a low model count faction the aim of the game has to be efficiency somewhere so we can actually run with a chance of winning.
Tarantula Turrets :-
Coming with Twin linked Heavy bolter or TL Assault Cannons at 30/31 points respectively these look like a complete steal. T5 W5 can be a pain to get rid of and is BS3+!
The draw back is HB must attack nearest infantry first.
Lascannons must attack nearest Tanks first.
Assualt cannon and Multiamelta variants do not have any "must attack" rules attached.
Actually hoping someone will come out of nowhere and give a good verdict on this one but i have been recommended it for 8th edition as it works like the Stormravens currently.
Fire Raptor :
Of the two Birds this is the one that i am eyeing up the most. coming in at 400 points this thing has 2 Quad Heavy bolters and Megabolter and hellstrike Missles. The reason I like the sound of it is because it makes the corvus look bad in terms of raw firepower and carries around the same surviability while taking no penalty for flying around due to the machine spirit rules.
So I am hoping to create discussion about these units.
