Did anyone see the new rules for the Tantalus? It got a huge bump in the apoc book. 12 srt5 ap2 shots is brutal! It has d6 str7 ap2 bladevain attacks! 5 hull points (which is weird). 16 transport capacity is nothing to shake a stick at either... Now all I have to do is keep it alive.

Bet it's got an AV that makes the 5HP pretty much irrelevant though.

AV 12 front and sides... so, it's weird right?

not too weird. Remember Hull points is suppose to be the size of the thing. If the raider has 3 and the tantalus is basically 2 raiders slapped together, it makes sense to have 5 (-1 for the joint in the middle) Add in the 16 capacity is for a max unit of wyches + IC (or a ton of grots)

As for the gun stats and the bladevane, it looks basically what it was before, so no change there.

I think what he meant by that was AV12 means it's still going to get wrecked pretty easily meaning 5HP won't really matter Razz

do you still have to use the court to use it as a dedicated transport?

yeah its HS or take a court to get it as DT. the unrefined rules for it gave it str 6 heavy 6 shots which was chopped to str 5 in its first outing in the armour book. and unless im mistaken it used to have a capacity of 20 but came in at a huge point cost. points have been dropped particularly but str 5 still only makes it a troop killer or a DT glancer at best

Finally a vehicle worthy of carrying Vect.

I got mine a month ago, but hobby time is at a premium with me. I expect to finally have it built and, possibly, painted just before 2014...

5 HP should make it somewhat more durable... 5HP is much imo, unless they score a pen and rolls 6...

I got a Tantalus about 4 months ago and if I say any thing it's this, have plenty of green stuff on hand. Other than that everybody that sees it thinks its an awesome model. In game it becomes a target priority for your opponent. I almost want to paint a target on the sails xD
