Default Hell Vulcan Datasheet

Recently a friend of mine made a Baneblade variant. It was based on the Plaguereaper so it's BS 4, the Puss Cannon was replaced with a Vulcan Mega Blaster, the side sponsons were replaced with extra armour, it was given the command tank special rule, and it was given the options of a twin-linked bolter, combi-flamer, or a havoc launcher, all for 550 points. So I'm asking, what do you think?

I don't know that the Apocalypse Baneblade costs, but it's underpriced for "real" 40k.

An Apoc Baneblade costs 500 pts., before any upgrades.

Please avoid posting points costs - sorry for making it seem like I was asking, I was just musing really.

BS4 + one of the most freakish anti-MEQ weapons ever conceived, easily worth as much as a standard Baneblade chassis.

It should be 600 MINIMUM for Apocolypse, and then a little more than the 40k baneblade for regular 40k.

A "little" more? The Apoc Baneblade is about 300 points under what it should be. Even if you gave it the exact same weapons and rules as the 40K Baneblade, it's still undercost by well over 100 points.

Yeah. That is horrendously cheap.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Well, what I ment by the "40k baneblade" is the Imperial Armour one. The Forgeworld, not the Citidel.
