Anyone think the vault is worth it in competitive lists. Comes in at nearly 500pts making it a quarter of your army.

A GT was won recently with this list, so... yeah, the Vault is competitive.

The vault just seems like the way to go if you’re going to use C’Tan powers. Being able to choose four means you have quite the selection of dumping MW on things. And using 3/turn ANd getting +1 to most effects is not bad at all.

I am honestly expecting C’Tan to get nerfed in the near future simply because the ability to just designate enemy units to take MW without rolling to cast or be denied or whatnot is something that is going to get cheesed in an upcoming high-profile tournament. And GW seems to like to just need things in response to griping rather than looking at fundamental issues.

But isn't the Vault still a super-heavy? Because if it is, there are TOs that forbid that slot being filled in their games.

Are there? I haven't heard of that since 6th, maybe. Knights are present in almost every tournament so if that is true it can't be very widespread.

I'm in Australia, we're a bit odd down here & like restricting/banning super-heavys and full bore banning anything Forgeworld. Though the countrywide Forgeworld ban is apparently weakening with some units from there now on the restricted list.

Got to agree with Rod.H here, I'm Aussie and yes we're rather restrictive sometimes, I think due to forge world being quite expensive to get (for us)and with its semi overpowered rules it tends to get bought by the rich cheesy players etc etc, sometimes it is better to limit the pay to win types eh ;-).

That's why people(Aussies) go to Chinaforge for all their Forgeworld needs. I haven't due to getting most of what I wanted at their booth at the last year of GWs' Gamesday, though that's my Imperials somewhat sorted (till the Repressor appears in plastic) and of the FW Necron units only the Night Shroud & Acanthrites appeal to me.
