Default Re: Question on Pathfinders?

Don't think about it as a "point loss". Try writing the devilfish's information COMPLETELY Separate from the Pathfinders. It's not that you have to have this very nice, drone/missile dropping vehicle, it's that you GET to have it. A well-kitted warfish with TA, MT, DecLaunch, and SeekMis is roughly 140 points for a AV12 rolling battle wagon that most BASIC infantry can't scratch. Another way to look at it is as a down-graded sky ray, but it can rescue the Pathfinders in case of emergency.


Personally, I preffer Sniper drones: Yes, they are easier to kill when you get close, but they have the ability to split fire with every member of the unit. They have a high-accuracy markerlight, and multiple Meq-popping, IC-blasting punk weapons for roughly 20 points a model (cheaper than the upgrades they actually come with).
