New Spore pod Tyrannocyte
« on: November 03, 2014, 10:41:47 AM »
Transport capacity of 20 or 1 monstrous creature and has 5 deathspitters that can be upgraded to 5 venom cannons or 5 barbed stranglers.



-Edit- Sorry, I guess it was already posted in rumors section.

well 75 pts. for deep strikeing drop pod that can float around soaking up shots isnt that bad, I mean T5 6 wounds  and fearless, not a DT so no taking warriors or gaunts and making it obsec, and WS/BS 2 and Instinctive fire (if that does what i think it does) doesnt make it a very good tank after it drops off the payload, other than a much needed deliver system I wouldn't know how to use it. but the fact it takes up no FO slots means you can as many as you want/need. but yeah 3 of them dropping in a fex each give you 6 MC's in your opponents face, or you can load up a squad of warriors and deep strike synapse where you need it. so ya what do you do with it after you drop them, use it as mobile cover?

Yes. Exactly. We can use all of our (most of our) useless models now.

We're all required to Deep Strike Pyrovores at least once now... just because we can.

no S6 AP 4 assault 1 blast, the heavy version is S9 rest is the same. from the WD the upgrade is the regular venom cannon, would be sweet to have 5 S9 weapons for 25 pts though

so for 25 points you get 5 blasts that's kinda ridiculous

Gonna definitely pick up a pod as a delivery for my Haruspex. I love that critter.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

So the kit will come with options to build the spores, and the pod. $60 US price point. Not bad. Rules are supposed to be out on the 15th.
