Default Forgeworld XV9 Crisis Suits

Does anyone know which codex/book the rules for these suits are in?

And how viable is it to to do a full suit list of Crisis Suits?

ex.
Farsight Supplement
HQ - Commander
Elites - Riptide
Troops - XV8 Crisis Suits
Fast Attack - XV9 Crisis Suits
Heavy Support - XV88 Broadsides

For XV9's? I've heard that their value has been killed since 6th came out. Their thing was having multiple weapons with no multi-tracker requirement, and that's been eliminated with this edition. They're also generally more expensive than a standard dual weapon crisis with not much to show for it. That said, I haven't actually seen the rules for the models themselves.

Buy the Fusion Cascades for awesome looking double fusion blaster crisis suits.

Buy the Phased Ion Guns to turn into Submunition rifles, because while they're expensive guns, a group of 3 suits armed with them will blast groups of infantry to pieces. The regular PIGs are kinda awful otherwise.

XV9's with Double twinlinked burst cannons are cool, but unnecessary.

Just to be clear, XV9s are Hazard suits, not Crisis suits.

They seem to cost too many points for what you get. Im against equipping Burst Cannons on suits that have better weapon options(thats what Stealthsuits and Pirahnas are for). And the other weapon options make them cost even more.

They are neat though and I would consider using them if they were cheaper.

Just say NO to Burst Cannons on Crisis suits.

Always use Stealthsuits.
