It's a fun diversion in AB to create vehicles for my DH army but I haven't and really don't plan on fielding a VDR tank anytime soon, but was wondering what type of tank other DH players would find perfect in our army?
We all wish we had more anti-tank, but given the endless possibilities of VDR, is that the tank you would create if you could create just one? Remeber, points are an issue here. Yes an ordanance, with LCs that can split fire, with 14 armour, etc. etc. would be great, but be realistic.
Well, imo the VDR shouldn't ever be used to create NEW vehicles so much as variations on the exising Imperial ones - there are only a few chassis types availible to the Imperium, so how would one army have a completely unique vehicle?
Also, I believe in sticking with the fluff of an army. I wouldn't ever create an anti-armor tank for DH, as that isn't their job. They fight Daemons, not AV14.
So to me, the fluffiest tank you could make for the DH is a GK Land Raider variant. Maybe TL-psycannon turrets, hull incincerator, blessed, extra armor - basically a GK-ified LRC.
(That wasn't meant to be so preachy, just justifying my own choice ^_^ )
I fully agree with the fluff aspect.
My thougts on a cool DH vehicle would be a chimera body and the multimelta turrent from the SoB immolator. Then on the hull instead of a HB, make it a psycannon, or incin. This way your STs tank-hunters or inquisitors, would be really equiped to get into it with the daemon hordes and flame away. It would be a cool looking inquisitorial vehicle that's not overpowered and have a crew of STs that also makes sense, instead of SMs. Remove the hellpistols so it's sleek, and add extra armour for a tougher more seige look. I think it's really fluffy and keeps the DH army pure to its intensions and style of play.
