    In the older versions of W40K, certain weapons (ie: Lascannon), if they inflicted a wound and were not saved, would cause, say, D6 wounds. In the new version, the only thing i notice is that if the Str is double a target's T, then it can kill them outright. This, unfortuneatly, gives things like the wraithlord an advantage over most other things, for example, a SM Dreadnought. the SM Dread can be killed by a single lascannon shot, where as a wraithlord can not.

    Can someone please confirm this? Or am i missing something?

    this is true, but has already been explained as the fact that such constructs have a soul, and therefore a force of will, even when they are "hurt".
    also dreads can be disabled in a number of ways (power supply damaged, dead pilot, etc.) whereas you SPECIFICALLY have to break the soulstone on the wraithlord to stop it from continuing on.

    Yeah, this is excellent! TY Angel of Rust!

    Wraithlords can be killed by strength 5 weapons where a dreadnought cannot.. The older edition is over 6 years old now too heh, not exactly new. There are a lot more differences than "wraithlords are cheesy" which they arent as they can still be killed very easily

    Anyway, no pointin turning this into a wraithlord argument as anyone who has played a good number of games knows they arent that tough to kill if you know how.

    For everything unfair in 4th edition there were atleast 50 things unfair in 2nd (I still cant believe people play that edition with its 10 subrules for everything and its complete imbalance with wargear and movement rates)

    Thanks for the replies, and SM dreads have no pilot ^_^

    But I agree, I like the "new" version better.

    Yes they have the body of a dead SM is placed within a sarcophages or however you write it. Anyway that thing controls the dreadnought so in fact he is the pilot.


    However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.

    the pilots aren't dead at all, they are just mortally wounded. and they need this shell to live.
