Default New Cadian Goodies from FW!

Just got the newsletter today, and it has three new cadian goodies in it. First is a Sabre defense platform, very cool looking with either quad stubbers, twin autocannons, twin lascannons, or twin heavy bolters. I gotta get me the heavy stubber one, if only because it looks the coolest.

Next are the new tank crew models. Pretty cool and mean looking. Tank commander models arent my thing, but the bits are seperate and would make nice conversions

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/cadtc.htm

Finally they have a new, huge searchlight. This can be mounted on a vehicle or stand on its own on the same platform as the sabre defense platforms. Cool if you play a lot of nightfighting or want to spruce up your IG outpost.

Its a great time to play guard ;D

the sabre platforms look absolutly great, especialy the stubber one. its going to rip right through ork and nid armies.

the tank commanders look alright i guess, but nothing i hadn't converted already

and the searchlight, well fluffy but yet utterly pointless.

it doesn't really look kriegish to me. for the purpose it would be absolutly amazing for them, but it seems a bit to clean and well made. for krieg id expect something mroe along the lines of exactl that mounted inside a pillbox, or behind some razor wire encrusted sand bags. i see those platforms more in the hands of the mobile infantry from starship troopers.(but i they would be pretty amazing, imthinking of mounted on the back of a valkyrie)

I'm guessing two twin-linked heavy stubbers, like that quad autocannon platform (the Hydra, right?). That's a lot of dakka - about as much as a heavy bolter fire support squad, although of slightly lesser power. Accordingly, I'd guess a cost of about 70 points for the platform, or a bit less to reflect its immobility (and increased vulnerability? - would it count as an AV10 vehicle?). Call it 50-60, all up.

The model is definitely nicer than the others, too.

Well as crummy as the tarantula platform is (really low bs, limited fire ar, and very short "activation" range) it isnt very cheap. points-wise. This thing will probably be a bit more expensive than what its worth, but noone buys forgeworld for the rules! Heck, they mostly create their vehicles with VDR

But just to see, i made one up with the VDR in Army Builder III. I made it a small, immobile open-topped vehicle, with twin-linked autocannons (stubbers werent available) with the same armor as a tarantula. It came to 68 points. So you were right on with the guess of 70, assuming this thing was at all accurate. Not too expensive i guess.....
