    Well, we already have the standard Land Raider, the short-range-multi-shooting Land Raider Crusader, the high-on-Heavy-Bolters Land Raider Promtheus and the HERETICAL Land Raider Helios. It just struck me that no Land Raider is armed with everyone's favourite weapon type - PLASMA! So I thought up one, based mainly on the Land Raider Crusader. Might work well with Dark Angels or Black Templars.


    LAND RAIDER QUETZALCOATL

    Points: 260
    BS: 4
    Front Armour: 14
    Side Armour: 14
    Rear Armour: 14

    Type: Tank
    Crew: Space Marines

    Weapons: The Land Raider Quetzalcoatl is armed with a twin-linked Plasma Cannon, a Missile Launcher and Firestorm Pattern Plasma Guns on the sponsons. Each Firestorm Pattern Plasma Gun counts as three twin-linked Plasma Guns. The Firestorm Pattern Plasma Guns can always be fired, regardless of how far the Land Raider Quetzalcoatl has moved or what other weapons it is firing.

    Options: The Land Raider Quetzalcoatl may have any vehicle upgrade from the Space Marines Armoury.

    Transport: The Land Raider Quetzalcoatl may only be taken as a Heavy Support choice, never a transport option. It can carry up to 10 Marines in Power armour or 5 Terminators. It may only carry one squad and independent characters.

    Eh, you do realise plasma weapons are supposed to be rare right? Having 6 plasma guns on one tank (and that&#39;s not including the two cannons) seems odd... not to mention this thing absolutely butchers anything that relies on toughness/armour rather than numbers. Sorry but I don&#39;t like it .

    (Fear my instant fluff-creation powers&#33

    The Land Raider Quetzalcoatl was developed on Ryza, where the ancient art of contructing plasma weaponry are still remembered and practiced. Even so, the forges on Ryza have been unable to cope with massive demand for plasma weapons to mount on Land Raider Quetzalcoatl&#39;s. As such, they count as being 0-1 in a Space Marine army of any chapter.

    Hehehe, I suppose that&#39;s easy enough to work around. It&#39;s still way too über vs certain armies though... imagine playing against other SM or CSM, you&#39;re going to murder a terminator squad with one salvo. It&#39;s actually underpriced here (underpriced?? Land Raiders&#33;?), but if you&#39;d kick the cost up it&#39;s overpriced vs hordish armies...

    this would be the nemisis of any deathwing army out there, though just like BiD said it is pretty much useless against horde armies cause of it&#39;s weapons.

    The firestorm plasma guns are a bit over the top. Nothing else in the game has that kind of firepower, especially plasma based. Combine the two main weapons (who gets two main weapons?) with the sponsons, and you can wipe out a full squad of ANYTHING each turn. And the rule about the sponsons always being able to fire - you realise that this goes completely against the new vehicle move/shoot rules.

    I&#39;d say make the sponsons just 2 TL plasma at most. Maybe change them from plasma to something else entirely (maybe PC turret and a ML on each sponson?). Or maybe give it an overheat rule to counter the firepower - maybe for each side gun, on a roll of 1 it takes a save vs overheat. Or if you fire all the weapons, you can&#39;t move or fire the next turn because of the sheer amount of power used from the engines?

    Why not have 3 plasma cannons or 2 plasma cannons and a twin linked plasma gun? Cannons in the sponsons and a cannon/2 guns replacing the heavy bolters.
    Signature?

    Hmmm, two twinlinked missile launchers in each sponson and a (perhaps twinlinked) plasma cannon on top? Or maybe autocannons in the sponsons instead, that would be cool.

    Hell yeah, I always wanted a tank with Reapers&#33; That would severely rawk. Maybe the Chaos LRC version...

    8 terminators/15 CSM capacity
    Weapons: Reaper on top, twin heavy bolter sponsons, maybe add an extra thing on top like the MM, but that&#39;s rather rare in CSM (only dreads can get it).
