    Earthshaker Platform

    What’s the general opinion of the Earthshaker platform, is it a better option than a basilisk?, same gun, same direct / indirect fire, cheaper on points, only it can’t move. Let’s have your thoughts.

    Never used either personally cause I don't play as IG, but I would guess Earthshaker platform. Basilisks barely ever move anyway

    We had a big discussion over this at Relic, and the general opinion was that yes, earthshaker platforms are worth it.

    It's a Forgeworld platform so it's in Imperial armour. It's 75pts, but I don't know if that includes indirect fire. I suspect it does.

    That's right, it's in IA1, there is no mention of a cost for 'Indirect fire' but it is mentioned as available for it. This makes it a lot cheaper than an indirect fire capable Basilisk.

    I'd love to play a senerio where you are an IG defencive line and you can get like 3 of these babies!
    Its the same gun as a bassie, just a bit cheaper. I would take it over the bassie most of the time. It looks pretty cool.:yes:

    let me think here... when have i EVER had to move a basalsk... um never. Earthshaker platform just cause its cheeper, allowing more men and guns!

    Just to mention that it can be blown up easier thought, as its already Immoblie and Immobilized result will kill it. AFAIK (Pretty sure as thats what it says in my BG
