Default Favorite Forge World Model - Poll

I decided to make my question into also a poll so I got a better idea of what people think.

What is the best performing on the battlefield for its points cost.

Please go ahead and vote and leave feedback!!!

what do you mean by best? best as in most practical? most cost effective? or just outright awesome?, because if its the last one then the manta will romp home. im voting for it anyway.

I think that the options are a bit vague. Best is also an equally vague question. generally, discussion is better then polls.

Broadsides, because they actually make them look credible, none of that 'lets put the large cannons on our shoulders' BS. Remoras comming in at a close 2nd.

The Manta fails by being more expensive than an RC helicopter.

As for best performing, I wouldn't know as the only FW I have is a Broadside with a broken leg.

I voted for the XV9 basically before reading the question.

I'd say that the Suits (commander, XV's, and broadsides) are the best - as they are often just a much better model.

Rmyr is also very good value for points.

The manta is one of those once in a lifetime models, effective, but too expensive to really get best use out of it.

Tau air support got raped in the APOC rules anyway, so that puts them low down.

Best? Greatest? Biggest? Need a morgage to buy it ? Manta, for the win. I like it just because of it's pure awesomeness, and 28 (I think) pounds of resin is going to leave a mark on your opponents army.

As a side note, I love forge worlds renegade millitia.

The only way the Manta is ever going to get more awesome is for them to make it to exact scale. As it is now on the table top, it's still too small. :P

I have no idea which is the best performing but if anything I'd want to field one of the air units (my money would be on the A-X-10).
