Whaaaaaaaaa?!?!? Just found this today in the IA Apoc book... Gotta say that I Did Not Know That

The Tantalus CAN be used as a Dedicated Transport for Court of the Archon in a standard 40k game (doesn't have to be an Apocalypse game).

So at 1750pts, I can use that to fill out my Heavy slots with DL Ravagers, Reapers or maybe a Voidraven (if I'm feeling saucy).

Time to build those Sslyths and Medusae I have!

Yep, it's either heavy support or a dedicated transport for the Court.

Yes, its true. Meaning two Lhameans is the tax for two extra Tantalus, and a Tantalus filled with Medusae is a Space Marines best friend!

Not to mention 12 S5 AP2 shots per Tantalus. Terminators won't have a good time either!

I sincerely hope FW releases an FAQ to allow us to take certain units in Ynnari Warhosts. Like, say, Tantali.

Well, you can take the Tantalus in an Ynnari Reborn Warhost Detachment. It just HAS to be a Dedicated Transport for a Court of the Archon and not a Heavy Support.

I wish my poor Raven, rubbish as it is, could partake in sweet Ynnari murder, but alas it is not to be.

While I am also glad that Tantaluses can be taken in a Reborn Warhost, I am not sure they make good transports for Yvrainne and the Visarch. I'm thinking one of the best ways to take Yvrainne is in a Seer council, not a Court. That way as the seers die Yvrainne can restore wounds and gain Mastery levels. I am reluctant to take the Visarch not with Yvrainne (and hence in a seer council) because he loses some of his utility if he's not in the same unit as Yvrainne. Am I missing some nefarious ploy to be concocted?

I just see the Visarch as a good means of chopping up MEQs. He'd function pretty well with just some wyches to tank hits whilst he goes shopping for marine bits. That high strength and good AP ought to help him out, and being able to provide a possible command buff always helps.

Yvraine for me serves the opposite role - she's a bit more of a challenge monkey, since she's basically like a Huskblade Archon but with Eternal Warrior and +1 Strength. The psykerness is also a major plus but for me I'm just planning to use it for general purpose buffing rather than any particular shenanigans.

Why would you think Apoc? Its just a AV 12 Open top with a couple extra HP's...... Its over 200pts base, look at Necrons Ghost Arcs and its even in power/points.

Because it is written in an Apoc book, so it's reasonable to think it's Apoc only. Common mistake. Smile

Actually, the book containing the stats for the tantalus clearly shows that the it can be taken in a none Apocalypse game.

However, it also shows that formation with the Tantalus can only be taken in an Apoc game.

Not a problem considering Stormsurge formation is also apocalypse.

I know the dataslate says that, I'm just saying that for the typical gamer, hearing that a vehicle is found in an Apoc game, it's easy to come to the (reasonable) conclusion that the units therein are Apoc units.

Side note: there is no greater woe in my 40k career than the Stormsurge being Apoc only. If they make that 40k-legal, then the things the Freakshow could do would make people weep. Very Happy
