ntaw It should totally just have an AV and be a (Super-Heavy?) Walker. Good call @Nordicus , the moment I saw a crew I was all like: this is a...creature??

While I do think the crew look cool, it does seem a bit silly to have the sun roof open during a war.

This. And why even have a walker category if two people driving a freakin' robot isn't a walker? There is zero consistency in what is a walker and what is a creature these days.

That's like saying sticking wings on a gargant demands its a flier. It doesn't matter if there's a 25 man crew, it's part of a battle suit family that are considered creatures. But, as I said, I care not a jot for the rules aspect of it, for me this is just a very cool detail on the model.

Exact opposite to me. The whole point of Tau suits being creatures were because they were single man extensions. Move an arm, arm moves. etc.

That cockpit DEMANDS that they be considered a vehicle profile, since it's two pilots working in tandom. It's ARMOR.

(and the open topped was a joke, I know GCs can't have that).

While I agree that it's silly in the extreme, that only increases the rules quandary as open-topped is a Vehicle type and this is a GC.
