Other than a sign of our new machine overlords (who I welcome), what is that?

Its this http://www.animalrobots.eu/?page_id=16

Its also something that would be very easy to make in epic from a single press moulded part (x20). Or possibly an excuse for me to try out a 4 mould-plain mould for lead (x5). Hmm ok you could do it in2 mould-plains but less fun, meh.

Put a drill on the front of that which opens up to release a jet of flame and you have your big mechanical burrowing worm

I like it.

I noticed you kept the Leg of Doom, but now as a mortar.

I have thought about the name, about how it works (a mortar but also an AA weapon) and I came to the conclusion that shooting people and airplanes with legs is so fragging awesome, this needs to be in the list!


I really like this list. Not too keen on the malorcs, but I'll probably use GZG Alien Infantry for them. Already started searching ebay for a cheap colossus.

A few 'bitz sketches' around ideas of chaos squat chaos/squat/imperial armour mixes to make mortar/missile vehicles. Some are just silly, i think a few could work, all would clearly need spikes, chains, greenstuff etc added. Just to get some ideas going:

That was the Doombein version.

You will notice I changed the name to Doombane to get past the 'leg of doom' :D

As for Malorcs, go sick with other troop types. It does not matter what they are. At the end of the day, they are stats to model off.

Cheers dude

Apoc, these are really awesome!!

I have had a real issue accepting my rockets and cannons and I just need an excuse to change them - I think you have just provided it. You have also given me ideas on how to represent a Doombane

In regards to 'some are just silly', these are Chaos Squats. Nothing should be beyond their want to create bigger and better platforms of destruction.

I am going to start working on some stats to coincide with the above pics. If anyone else wants to join in and help out with some stats and costings, your most welcome

Cheers.......

Hmm, wonder what i should do with the pulsa rockets i just got on ebay to represent them ;D :'(

Will also probably be using the orphaned land train cars for Vedaj..s? (s? how do we pluraise words like this? :P ) Bear in mind that the 1s based on land train engines would probably have to be DC2...its a very big/chunky chassis even compared to a land raider. Have you looked as Assyrian siege tower design?

I also found some really cool Kiishar minis as well...all i need to do now is glue them together :-\ :

I was thinking about that as I bought a whole bunch of 2mm miniatures to do all my rockets. They could easily be used as Annihalators as well. You do not have to go with the boring squat mini I placed up as the example. If you have no use for them, I will probably buy them off you - as may some on these lists as well.

Remember, the stats are there so their inclusion or excluusion comes down to what the list needs. Let's get stats for those vehicles you made and let's see what fits.

Would that not be better used for the Zhatan? The Vedaj (or Vedai plural?) are merely fast AV to get you to a location

Ah but then what do i do with my Annihalator minis!? If this problem continues to propagate ill be using rough riders as titans by friday (np though,,,ill just use the pulsa rockets as pulsa rockets for my orks :P )

Also land train cars are a bit smaller than a rhino, i just meant 1 car per Vedaj, not a hole string of em.

Remember the theory behind Annihalators and power armour. The power armour does not allow these abhumans the mobility or dextrous fingers they would otherwise enjoy. Hence the difference in the armour.

You can do better than that Apoc. My grandad could have put that together and he is 90 years old! :D

*begins work on a 90 meter tall Annihalators made of titanium, diamonds and ice cream, to crush frogbear. It shall have feet made from buses, arms made from swimming pools, a chest formed of broken LHC components and hair made from spaghetti.

Pulsa rockets to proxy Annihalators is actually rather temping now i think about it more, had some trakktor cannons i was thinking of chopping up as well, hum... hmm we shall see...

Looking at all of Apoc's examples, I am thinking along the lines of the following:

Hashvaht Support Engines
Bought in formations of 4-6 units of any combination (75 points per unit - as a rough guide - may start out at 275 for 4)

========

Type 1
MV:20cm, AR4+, CC6+, FF4+ Reinforced Armour
Cannons 45cm 2xAP4+/AT5+
Missiles 30cm 1BP

Type 1 - version 2 - I am leaning towards this one myself for the type 1 version
MV:20cm, AR4+, CC6+, FF4+ Reinforced Armour
Cannons 45cm 3xAP4+/AT5+
Missiles 30cm 1BP Single Shot

========

Type 2
MV:20cm, AR5+, CC6+, FF4+ Reinforced Armour
Large Barrage 30cm 2BP, Indirect

Type 2 - version 2
MV:20cm, AR4+, CC6+, FF5+ Reinforced Armour
Large Barrage 30cm 2BP, Indirect

========

Thoughts anyone?

Prefer version 2 of type 1, I was definitely thinking of single shot when i put the whirlwind launchers on the sides, in the same manner as the gorgon mortar sponson single shot weapon.
