A defiler with indirect seems to me that would only serve a purpose on a board 4x6 or larger. I could be wrong though and fielding in in a corner might help? what is everyones experience with them setup with indirect fire on smaller boards? is that 1-2 turns of shooting worth it in a 2000 point or less game on a 4x4? what about a 4x6?
Thanks for your input
Looked through the older defiler post and I love the mecha one that was modded, it looks mean...but very..easily spotted.
and that brings me to another points. LOS, can you mod something like the defiler to be taller so that you can have better LOS?
Can you take land speeders of their stands to have them hide at end of movement phase?
The top two rule questions I would call GW but my phones dead and I'm at work.
any input or tourney pro/or personal is welcomed.
IF Defiler *can* fire directly if you wish. The rule is explicit about that. (Unlike Basilisk's one)

Taking them off their stands changes nothing game-wise, but... you do know that landspeeders can hide behind terrain as normal for vehicles, yes?Can you take land speeders of their stands to have them hide at end of movement phase?
If you're asking about landing your speeders then only the Tau can do that and even they normally don't bother.

raising your defiler isnt going to change your los. its still a size 3 model and is blocked by size 3 terrain.
ive had luck using one on a 4x6 board, i dunno about 4x4 though thats tiny.
basically 1 good shot on a squad of marines and it made its points back though.
i dont overload mine either though.
indirect fire, sometimes havoc launcher, and sometimes mutated hull is the only thing i put on mine.
leave the moderating to the moderators
