Default What is an Area Denial Node?

I just update my army builder today, and I found out there is a thing called a Area Denail Node. It's a turrent mount twin-link railgun, with 2 structure points and armor of 12 all around. I have tried to look up any pic so I know what it would looks like. And maybe I can build it myself with some spare parts that I have laying around my house. If any one has any picks on what it looks like post them.

Sounds like something from someone's house rules. There are Tau Turrets in the Forge World range, but none that have stats like that.

Those stats sound a lot like the Tau's fully-upgraded listening posts from Dawn of War.

It was in a recent white dwarf battle report. Basically an immobile railgun that I think can submunition. I don't have the article on hand though

Yeah, it's from the recent White Dwarf - it's an Apocalypse Data Sheet which is essentially just as everyone's described here.

An immobile Tau drone-controlled twin-linked Railgun turret that (IIRC) can be networked with other ones to produce devastating results.

It's a rather nice unit actually; I've been planning on making a model one of these days.

I do agree that it can be deadly. But its not a House rule at all. I know its a turrent and it can move.

You are not allowed to post unit stats or points costs, it's against forum rules.

and its also a Legendary for the apocalypse rules.


If I can find some pic's I am going to have a few so I can place them on the feild to deal with titans and any big and heavy things that come my way.
