Hey, in the I wish for this pile:
A squad of Dire Avengers can take a Dire Avenger Shuriken Cannon! Two models in the squad replace their ASC's with Shuriken Pistols and a grav platform Avenger Shuriken Cannon. Stat line would be
Avenger Shuriken Cannon 36" S6 AP5 Assault 3.
Bladestorm would work as normal.
Thoughts and/or costs?
I don't know if this really fits with the dire avenger theme or for that matter aspect warriors in general. They are mainly perfection trained troops with one really BA Exarch leading them so fluff wise you may have some objections from your competitors.
For points cost it would seem logical to make them pay 1.5 times the guardian's cost for this weapon as the troops are 1.5 times more than the guardians and the rate you have increased the weapon is the same as the troops' basic weaponry is already increased.
That explanation was a bit long but basically take the price for the shuriken cannon and multiply by 1.5 and it should be fine. Enjoy!
NOTE: Always best to round up in case of fractions.

I have to agree and say nay to that idea. It really doesn't fit the squad's purpose. GW already gave us a huge boon by giving us an extra specialized range for our avenger's shuriken catapults so that we can outrange rapidfire weapons. Combined with Bladestorm and Doom, having a grav platform against the targets avengers should be used to kill is almost a moot point.
