Default Vendetta Gunship

Due to a rather heated debate about railguns and vendettas in my fast attack thread, i thought i would post this poll so people can argue about it in an area for that argument

I'm actually undecided. The TL lascannons are a truly nasty armament, but it still only has hellhound armour, so if it wants to fire them at all it makes itself reasonably easy to kill the next turn. On the other hand you are getting a ludicrously good deal for it's points cost. You can't even get a fully las-ed out predator for that price tag, and this one gets to be a fast skimmer transport to boot!

So definitely under pointed. Overpowered? If it's not, it's on the border.

Overpowered, probably. Broken, unquestionably.

...and you have no one to blame for it but GW.

Personally I think they would have sold a shit ton of valkyrie models without giving them three twin-linked lascannons for a ridiculously low cost, but hey, it's all about the money right?


Anyway, personally I voted yes, but I'd still max out my fast attack choices with them anyway.

If you think about it you can get a heavy weapons team with 3 lascannons and use the bring it down to twin link them getting the same result for even cheaper (unless counting the price of the command squad but you would probably have that any way).

Personally I don't feel as though tey are overpowered, borderline though. They have poor armour and are easily destroyed.

my issue is that, as stated above, its so damn cheap, and comes in squadrons.

plus its just needlessly good at what it does. that is what makes it overpowered.

i can understand an argument about rails vs lascannons, but how can you argue about rails vs vendettas?

eitherway, i voted yes.

i also like pie, but i only get one vote.

i voted no, but they arnt far off, its the alpha strike capability that makes them so good, its a very tau trick and they just dont like it.

tau have an alpha strike capability?

you mean as in we can prevent someone from doing any damage to something by hiding things in reserve?

In my army I call lascannons "LOLcannons", because they truly suck. They are single shot and don't do hardly any thing against AV 14 vehicles. I guess they are okay against AV13, but I don't see AV13 around allot where I play. Frankly I don't even field lascannons any more, I just go with melta if I want to get the job done. And for AV12 and below autocannons are awesome and cheap.

I wish the vendetta rather had 3 twin linked autocannons. Now that would have been sweet. Flank and then get some side armor shots, or shred some infantry. Man, chasing Eldar transports around with that would be mean. I guess that's what we have the Hydra for.

Oh yeah and, lol squadrons. That's like strapping TNT with targets painted on it to the outside of the Vendetta. And then some how have it so that if one Vendetta is shot all of them magically blow up.

mmmmm pie.
