I was looking at the Land Raider Prometheus in the Forge World issue and I had some quesitons about it that I hope you guys can answer.
First off, is it practical? I play an army that does use reserves, at least two drop pods and a squad of Teleporting termies, so the rerolling the reserve roll is a very attractive ability right off the bat. As well, it has a rather low model count by design so I'm thinking the presence of a Land Raider will divert enough attention from my other models so that I can get them placed where they need to be with less risk. Add to the fact that the ammount of Heavy Bolter firepower it's able to put out is stagering even against MEQ armies is something that I find inticing. Lastly, it would provide a way to get my Termies (Particularily my Assault Termies) into battle without using Teleport homers and relying on Deepstriking them, though it's not my first choice as DSing along with the pods is my preference.
Second, Is it legal? I'm a little fuzzy on Forge World rules and such seeing as how I haven't use anything from them before. Would I be able to use the Prometheus in Turnaments? Is it somethign that can be relyably played?
Also, if you guys have a better idea or would like to see my army list, please comment as well.

Yeah, use the Prometheus. It couldn't hurt. After all, your list fits right in with it's powers and the 4 TLHB are no light matter.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
I've faced one on a few occasions, and it is incredibly hardcore. Very little can stand up to its firepower (That many TL heavy bolters is sick). It certainly has its uses - but like any land raider, there is the chance it gets destroyed by the first shot of the game and gives your opponent a lot of VPs.The FW books state that their models are considered legal for friendly games. They are only tournament legal if the organisers say they are - and most of the time they don't. So if you're looking to take it to a competitive event, you are likely to be out of luck.Originally Posted by TacJack
