So, I've been wondering how people feel about the viability of some of the sicaran tanks such as the omega, with a 2+ and armor of contempt making them far tougher. I have had some success with Leviathan Dreadnoughts for similar reasons, and with 14" move and a cheaper 1cp 200pt price tag, do you think they're finally worth it? (With the new plastic kits coming out, ofc)

I think the Sicaran has definite mileage now and the Omega looks like the best of the bunch to me. Sadly I suspect the codex will only have the auto-cannon version and the Omega will remain FW only.

Love to be proved wrong though.
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

The regular Sicaran Battle Tank lacks firepower for the points.

The Sicaran is significantly shootier, faster and tougher than a Predator Destructor for only a handful more points (not that the Predator is good, I admit). The problem is that much of its firepower has just been hit hard by AoC and Marines are always going to be a target you have to take into account.

Sicaran Omega is amazing, I wish CSM had access to all the variants....
