Default Shadowsword Conversion

I acquired an old Armorcast Shadowsword through a trade, and decided to convert it over to the new rules set for em. Filed out sponsons for the Dual H. Bolters, got rid of the lascannon sponsons, and added lots of little details things here and there. Here she is:

Primed


Painted:


And here is with her sister for a size comparison:

It's interesting, and close enough to get away with. However, since the new (STUPID) vehicle range ruling, you'll probably be accused of cheesing the barrel.

Well that's is actually the gun barrel it came with, so not much I can do about that. Aslo, with 120" range on the Volcano Cannon, I don't think there will be much debate about another inch or two :D

You underestimate the power of rules arguments. If it is debatable, it will bne debated at some point.

Me and my regular opponent had this massive argument one time about an Avatar being 4mm short of being able to charge. We both agreed it was 4mm short, and both knew it was detrimental to the outcome of an intense game. My argument was that if it can't reach it can't reach. His argument was I was being too precise, too serious.


Heresy grows from idleness.

Let me guess; it was his Avatar.

In situations like this, where neither party is ever going to back down, just flip a coin.

Cheesy, this thread is over 2 -years- old

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
