6 SHIT THINGS ABOUT THIS MODEL
2. it looks far to G.I Joe. google GI Joe S.L.A.M
3. what no Aquilla?
4. not really "possible", even in the 40k sci-fi setting
5. maybe too retro? no one wants heresy era guard.
6. look, they really fucking dont.
LONG STORY SHORT...
while it brings some "pew pew pew" to the guard, A i cant use it in my main army (Armoured Company) and B its rules are a bit meh... while S9 ordanace is ok, and twin linked, itsrange is piss poor, and with BS3 your gonna need that TL. i might possibly get one, or even try to build one (wish i'd not sold that thunderfire cannon now) just cos a bit of anti heavy tank dakka is always handy, but as a HS slot its a bit of a price to pay. but 40pts does mean it is useable in small games, and adding it to the guards low priced hydra and griffon, and giving them a chance at smaller games.
im not sure about the retro design, but it does have a charm. using cadian troops on the pictures is surprising, as it cries out for Krieg.
the best i can offer is; might be worth a look...
