I am converting a new tank, and I'm trying to get some rules for it. It is basically a mix between a Leman Russ and a Chimera. The tank is ment to be a heavier armed and armored Chimera. I will have pics up as soon as I can (I still have to finish it), but here are my proposed rules-
Leman Russ Chimera- "the Ox"
Armor- Front 13 Side 12 Back 11
Guns- Turret Mounted Autocannon, Hull Heavy Bolter, 2 Side Mounted Grenade launchers.
Troop Capacity- 10
Fire Points- Same as a Chimera
Do you have any feedback (too cheap/expensive, etc)?
this this is WWWWWAAAAAAYYYYYY to cheep its a preditor with better guns and it can carry men lose out on some of the guns eg the nades and auto cannon armor wise its got a better all round armor value that the preditor and thats ment to be the tank of the elite corps of humanity
so all in all leave the bolter make it twin linked and in the turret drop the armor on the sides by a point drop the rest of the gun and insted of lasguns make them bolters but thats just my thoughts
spambot kill tally: 79
[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
I didn't use VDR. The reason I made it 130 pts is that a normal Chimera (with Multi Laser and H is only 85pts
85+5 (multilaser into Autocannon)+ 12 (2 GL)
I figured that +1 front, +2 side, and +1 back, but not amphibious and 2 less capacity would equal about 30 points.
What should I change it too? It probibly should be less than 155 (the cost of a Leman Russ with 3 H How about 140/50?
Edit- Can anyone understand what this- "this this is WWWWWAAAAAAYYYYYY to cheep its a preditor with better guns and it can carry men lose out on some of the guns eg the nades and auto cannon armor wise its got a better all round armor value that the preditor and thats ment to be the tank of the elite corps of humanity"- means?
Or you could simply use the Autocannon armed Chimera rules, since they're good enough as they are, IMO.
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
VDR has this thing set at 160, w/o the 6 las guns. Their is no option to have the lasguns be fired by the passengers like the chimera has.
Youâ€™re asking too much from this vehicle. I would say convert a chimera to have sponson heavy bolters, and reduce the troop carrying capabilities to 6 men. This would make it a transport usable by command groups and storm troopers but not the basic grunt. And 13 front armor is too much for something that has a hull mounted weapon. Perhaps remove the front heavy bolter for extra armor.
Here is my altered Heavy transport
Crew: human (bs3)
Front armor 13 (Removed front heavy bolter in exchange for reinforced armor.)
Side armor 11 (Removed lasgun ports, replaced with additional armor.)
Rear armor 10 (No modifications)
Turret Multi laser (or same options a standard chimera is allowed.)
Side sponson heavy bolters
Transport: 6 men (reduced capacity do to ammo reserves for heavy bolters.)
Amphibious (increased weight is counterd by sealed firing ports, allows the vehicle to submerge completely.)
Total cost: 151
The point of this tank is to be a powerful, well armored transport, ment for leading assualts, etc. I think that the arments are right because they are slightly better than a chimeras (better for cracking a strong point). The armor needs to be high so that it can take a bit of a beating. This tank is supposed to be alot better than a chimera, but more expensive.
Also, for those of you confused, the tank is based on a Leman russ chassis, with a bigger back (to justify the carrying capacity), and a different type of turret.
isitused version of the tank is much more fair and fluffy as well as being a ahndy tank that i wouldnt mind using. Also what has this got to do with a Leman Russ, will you be using the leman russ chassi?
The poster formaly known as VampireSoul, formaly known as OrkSlugga now known as Orkslugga.
Ork Slugga, read my post (the one right above yours) starting at Also (the second paragraph).
About itisused's version, thats based on a chimera, rather than a leman russ (I know he didn't know about the leman russ chasis, so it's not his fault, but it just doesn't work with the tank I'm making). The tank is ment to be a leman russ that has been modified into a transport for assualts, when a chimera is too light.
First thing, its a leman russ variant right? So it needs leman russ armour.
Name: Leman Russ Carrier
Armour - 14, 12, 10
Weapons: Must choose one of the following: Autocannon +25, Heavy Bolter: +15 or a multilaser at +25
Special Options: Can Carry 10 Modals
Points Cost: 105
I sort of used VDR, but it came out very cheap. So I added on a few points. Maybe I missed something?
