Shocked

How did the reaper do?

It wound up in two games. It pretty much won the first game for me (against the list I was most worried about having too many vehicles). I think it only took out two or three vehicles (that opponent had a few rhinos, two squadrons of land speeders, a predator, a drop pod, a dread, and a flyer), but two or three of its shooting phases ended up forcing the heavy flamer speeders to jink, which is a damn fine use of its time.

The second game it didn't do AS great. My opponent only had two vehicles. However, since I got the Strategic warlord trait that gave me stealth (ruins) I was able to park it behind a building with the gun sticking through, and go to town on my enemy, all the while enjoying a 3+ cover save without Jinking required. The Mandrakes were probably the MVPs of that game (if you discount the Venomspam warriors, of course) though: their Soul Blaze NEVER expired on any unit they shot.

Eh? Where are you getting that from? It causes ID on a 5+ in beam mode but I don't see anything about a different Haywire table. Question

It's on the rules page. When I get some time later I'll look it up and give more specifics. I guess the Haywire rule wasn't standard when the book was printed? But it gives rules for Haywire in the datasheet, which say it Glances on a 2-4 and Pens on a 5-6.

Forgeworld need to make 7th edition rules for the reaper and tantalus, anyway.

No doubt! The Raven, too.

Or better yet: give us new Forgeworld models! FFS, is any army LESS supported by Forgeworld? Don't freaking Sisters have more stuff than us?

Sisters only have 1 tank that's out of stock and some doors for rhinos and immolaters

Forgeworld sent me an email and in regards to the reaper they said house rule the reaper but didn't say anything about the other 2 so.

House rule the reaper to what?

Aren't there selections that any Imperial army can take?

The house rules for the reaper are in regards to the war gear it can take like the thing that's only available to venoms now and it can do those fly by attacks
