Metal Bawkses, on the tableside.
Metal Bawkses, full of red barettes...
Very Happy

Seriously though, I think those Munitorum Armoured Container Caches are nice fortifications, and not only for Imperial cowards and fools.

But would you use them? And if yes, how?

I already said this before, but I'll say it again:

Purchase metal box for 40 points.
Purchase corpsthief Claw.
Purchase Tigurious.

Place corpsethief claw formation on box.
Use Tigurious psychic powers to move box(terrain) across the table 24".
Charge on turn 1 with corpsethief claw.
Profit.

Could do the same thing except with a sword & board wraithknight instead for giggles.

Hmm...
How to fit five Taloi on a Rhino-sized object though? Neutral

I haven't physically seen the boxes, but I'm sure you can fit something appropriately nasty on it. Experiment and let me know. Razz

Size compariosn:



So they can roughly hold a single file line of 5 marines inside? Maybe ten on top if they are all bunched together.

Not convinced you'll get five whole Tali on one of them.

Except of course that its all down to "how you build the model" these days, so you can build whatever size containers you want.

I bet you could squeeze a unit of Grots up there though.

Or a wraithknight. It's like a wraithknight surfboard. Twisted Evil

Well in all fairness size of contained model to capacity of model isn't exactly 1:1 in this game. Tell me that you could cut the top off a rhino and fit all those space marines inside that space and pu the top back on.

Those containers aren't transport vehicles or buildings though, they are just terrain pieces. Think of them as something of an oversized Quad Gun model.

I'm starting to think that they might not be that great a choice for Shifting Worldscape shenanigans.

Why not? There are plenty of MCs and GMCs that could ride that surfboard. You could probably fit 2 Daemon princes on there, and at least 1 wraithknight. All it has to do is sit on top of it. If the edges hang over, it's no big deal.

Now I'm thinking about the guy riding the nuclear bomb in that ancient movie. Just that the guy on top is the dangerous thing this time. Very Happy
