The New Eldar Phantom vs the Cobra

Alright, I'm getting a summer job this year, and I'm trying to figure out what the save for.

Right now, It's between, like the title says, the Phantom Titan and the Lynx Superheavy.

Links to the experimental rules:

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Download...PDF/l/Lynx.pdf


By the end of the summer, I'll definately have enough money for one or the other (or possibly both, though I can't fathom fielding both of them at the same time....That's 2850 points for two models!).

Both of them suit my Apocalypse strategy of blowing Sh*t up, but which one do the Heretics think would work better?

Death Korps W1 T0 L1

Dark Elves W0 T0 L0

I don't think you can compare the lynx to the phantom titan they are completely different

Go with the titan because its a titan!

The lynx is alot more stealthy, use it to snipe at larger targets, but isn't that durable as far as apoc goes, the titan will be a fire magnet but is more likley to survive and can really dish out hurt.

Why not buy a Revenant Titan, a Scorpion Super Heavy Grav Tank
and a Lynx or two with the change from what you'd pay for the Phantom?

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

That titan is absolutely beautiful- I would do it if I could ever live with spending that much money on one particular thing unless of course it happens to be a car. Otherwise, naw.

Get the lynx and save all the rest of the money for somthing else (Vaz has a point, cars are amazing) unless you play a ton of massive apoc games.
