For those who can't tell due to the potato-cam, it's got Psychic Abomination built in and is a fast attack option.

THE RHINO

HAS PSYCHIC ABOMINATION

FOR 45 POINTS

AND IS A FAST ATTACK

You missed the detachment rules then?

The part where for every unit in the detachment that's on the table, the range of psychic abomination on every unit with it is increased by 3" after the first...

And with 3 units of sisters with 3 rhinos as DT, that's a range of 27" radius if all 6 are on the table PER UNIT

So you can literally stop any psychic power on the table from working with the right spacing!

And for that godlike power, the Imperium of Man has to spend the princely sum of 360 points!

That's only 20% (give or take a bit) of their army. Jeebus.

I'd pay it and run it along side my Ynnari in tournaments. I don't need psychic powers as much as most people do.

Isn't this a good thing?
Excuse my ignorance i'm hardly a gamer but I thought the number one gripe for hardcore gamers in 40k have been playing against these psychic stars in its various forms. Those type of lists suck all the fun out of the game, is the gripe I read most.

Now with this anyone can combat those tactics for cheap and hopefully could lead to more variation in list building and what you may come up against?

Yes and no its a good thing.

Is a hugely powerful rule on a way to cheap platform that essentially stops some armies dead in their tracks. Its way to cheap for what its doing. Adding this to a battle company at 1850 is easy enough and you have an army that is all but unbeatable.

It scores easily as almost everything is ObSec
Its mobile
Its got lots of units
Its got good shooting
It completely shuts down any psychic powers (meaning marines are even better as they have the best basic stats and gear)

The armies that NEED psychic powers like nids suffer a huge amount as a result

The ability to nullify psykers is extremely powerful. To have that ability on multiple cheap units that are available as a standalone formation with no tax and that cover sufficient area to block out 4 entire battlefields is uttely ridiculous and terrible design.

If psychic deathstars are a problem, firstly STOP MAKING BROKEN PSYCHIC POWERS, secondly, do something about Battle Brothers and thirdly, have a long hard look at how special rules confer between units.

The flip side is you can kill these things as easy as space marines, and if you DON'T use psychic powers they're dead in the water.
