I'm curious, what do you all think of using a Baneblade in 1500 point games. Around here I know we are allowed too. I noticed my tank set up of
-3 Heavy Bolters
-3 Heavy Bolters
Leman Russ Demolisher
-2 Plasma Cannons
costs nearly what the Baneblade would with the Command HQ upgrade on it.
I myself personally think it would be worth it. I like to take tanks over Basilisks because of the WWI like battlefields I fight on, they can soak up a lot of hits. Yet I noticed my Ordnance doesn't kill much. Maybe 10 models each round if I'm lucky. That huge template would surely kill something even if it scattered, it can survive more due to how the damage chart works for Super Heavies, and I think it can produce equal amounts of firepower. I also like the concept of one monster tank with an infantry force around it.
What do you all think about taking a Baneblade in a 1500 point list? Sorry if this has been discussed before, I looked back and pages and didn't see anything.
If you use a BB in a smaller game, you have to use the Forgeworld rules, which makes for a much more expensive option, pointwise.
Now, if you opponent is willing to play Apoc rules in a small game, it is a pretty beadry thing to do. If your opponent plays a "balanced" list at 1500, they probably will not be able to deal with it.
If your opponent knows the BB will be played, then they can probably deal with it, leaving you with 1000 points of dudes after turn 1. The game will revolve around your Baneblade and your opponent's strategy to deal with it, which will be fun for one or two games.
To me, it seems like more of a special scenario option, rather than an everyday list option.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
I'd steer clear in such a game. In a 1500 pt game, that's far too many eggs in one very large basket. Stick to the wonderful Leman Russ i'd say!
