indeed, its longer, wider, BUT not taller, its very low in comparison, so it can behidden in terrain much easier, its how a Tank in 40k SHOULD be, not these jokes that GW have designed

We often use house rules and such so I wasn't really bothered, it was roughly the same size and the bloke actually owns a real Basilisk (god knows where it was and why he wasn't using that) so whatever.

Well, the other guy who plays Eldar was flat out against the use of this plastic box and pen tank, he demanded it be removed from the table or he refused to play. He claimed that assembling and painting your models is what gives you the right to field them, blah blah blah. Even though the Guard player has an actual Basilisk, he wouldn't accept this, claimed it was unfair and that was that. He simply would not play.

So now I'm wondering, because I don't take the game has seriously as others, does he have a point or is he just being a bitch?

Would you let your opponent field a plastic box pen tank against you?

How would this kind of thing go down in your local store?
As long as the IG person had paid for it in his list i'd be fine with it, The Eldar person was being a cock, you should have just said screw you then or whatever...

I can see both sides of the argumet here but cant really decide where I stand. I mean on the one hand it is a bit of a nothing moan, its still for all intents and purposes a basilisk. But while a rare occasion it may be, fighting with a fully modelled and painted army is great and adds loads to the experience. If you've made all your troops up, painted them and lugged them to someone elses house to field them the last thing you want to see on the battlefield is a tank made from office supplies.

If it were me i'd allow it but i'd make damn sure i blew it up real quick to get it off the table.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith
