Eh? How is this something reportable? Nothing they posted in that writeup is false or misleading. Just because the internet is a bitchy little set of whiners does not mean they are right.

thinking about it, i know its a game but in real life if you shot a tank with two or three missiles you would expect it to blow up, just because its a tank dosnt make it invincible

They're right in that tanks are more likely to be operational later into games. It's now very difficult to one shot vehicles with anything other than a melta (same for AP2), and you need a penetrating hit to do any damage at all unless you wipe out all the hull points.

There's also a lot more pressure on builds to take plasma to counter AP2, and flamers for Overwatch. Then there's flyers and flyer defense. All of which means less room for the standard max mech and melta of 5th. Just building to kill tanks is going to hurt you in other areas.

Dependa what you are being obscured by of course, not everything is 4+ now. Also the extra cover save was if u can some part of the tank but NOTHING of the facing you are in, which was what the pic described.

Well, it is a game but considering the time assembling/painting, money spent, and list writing to include it you certainly want to see it survive for at least a while.


And, in my book, tanks are always invincible... except when they're not!

I'm not going to argue that too much. But, in my own experience once I've painted a few troops I get a method going for 'how to paint them' and its way easier for me to knock out a squad/platoon in no time. In fact, I was actually painting two minis a day of my marines at work when all I did was bolter toting troops. I imagine most people paint between 2 to 6 large tanks and those may take a while longer in consideration of construction, priming, base coating, and finally detailing.

yea i didnt mean to argue for the sake or arguing, i was just saying its a warzone, everything is vulnerable in some sense, even tanks. and i do agree you put more effort and thought into a centre piece like a large tank or a character.

That's actually not a bad idea if your just tossing them.
