Default Cheaper crisis suits

I recieved my copy of IAV3: TAros campaign, and i found that crisis suits are cheaper than in codex. So even fireknife, with it upped plasma rifle price, is cheaper than before.

Now cheapest Crisis suit could cost 34 points (it is not usefull configuration but it is cheap).

So all the previous cofigurations are in fact cheaper, and with new equipment choices you coul do even cheaper variants.
Also note that not only Shas"ui crisis suits are cheaper, but also Shas'vre crisis suits are cheaper also.
The only config which is more expensive is a suit with TL plasma rifle, which is more epensive by one point than before.

Just out of interest...what on earth just costs 34 points? Remember you have to fill all three hard points?

It have TL Flamer, and Black sun filter. Total cost of 34pt.

But more usefull config with burst cannon, flamer, and muti tracker would cost only 42pt. so it is also much cheaper.

actually, fireknife gets more expensive. by a whopping 2 points!

Im glad to say the cheap flamers and missile pods allow me to field a 52 point deathrain. which i will happily do.

and it wont be 34 points. you still have to fill in all 3 hardpoints IIRC. I'd hope GW changes that so i can field 48point deathrains!

Point is that when the price of Plasma rifle goes up. The base price of Crisis suit goes down, so Deathrain is now possible at 46pt with Black sun filter.

So the cost of Crisis only goes down for the new suits or for all the suits?

Based on the info from IAV3, all crisis shas'ui and shas'vre are cheaper, broadsides stayed on same cost, but they have more options, and stealth suits are not listed in the book.

IAV3 is Imperial Armor Volume Three. It is a collection of rules for all the new units forgeworld has made and has a bunch of fluff on he Taros Campaign.

I use fireknife almost exclusively, so I'm happy with the new costs, though I don't think they are significant either way.
