Default VDR light hummer for IG

Name Points Front Side Rear BS

Humvee 98 10 10 10 3

Type: Light Vehicle
Size: Normal
Speed: Fast

Weapons:
1 x Twin-linked Autocannon

I was thinking as a fast attack choice, small gun and able to help any guard squad to the front lines.

If it's going to be a transport it really should be a regular sized vehicle, like all other transport models in the game. Also the twin-linked auto-cannon is a bit much for such a small light vehicle IMHO. A single Autocannon or a heavy bolter would be more in line I think with the idea.

Yeah, i agree with spiritbw. Drop the transport status or make it bigger. Also, make it a choice between an autocannon or heavy bolter. I made the same sort of vehicle, and it rocked out with a heavy bolter. ;D

light hummer?

without looking at the rules that's the worst idea I've heard all day. Let's model something off of a civilian vvehiclewhich is modeled off of a military vvehicle Does that not make sense to anyone else?

good points - it was just a crazy thought that popped into my head, make a zillion hummer versions and making an all hummer army.
You are right however - I'm not sure it would seem right or work

I'd agree with Fingolfin, the Hummer is just a Salamander for closet-gays with small penises who were abused by their parents... which explains their popularity amongst rappers.

i dont like civilian hummers at all. military hummers waste too much as well. but the part about rappers is a bit much. were you abused as a child?(again j/k)
