4: Will it push Sisters of Battle towards our goal of 2100?

Future merchandise must fulfil all of these obligations on behalf of our shareholders and the slightly less nitpicky and money orientated Satan

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

If it wasn't for the fact that GW has no Marketting department I'd assume this to be true...

I mean, honestly, have y'all looked at the rest of the guard armor? As a whole, it sorta look like a whole bunch of brick shit houses on tracks. Personally, I love the damn thing. Why? Because it looks like a brick shit house on tracks.
I would agree if the stats weren't shit. A titan sneezes and this thing explodes.

Ah, well I can't say anything about the stats. Paper armor, I'm guessing?

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

I know I was just trying to keep the convo in context. 11 10 10? Are you serious?!? Make it 100 points and make the armor 13 12 10.

13 12 10 would be worth WELL over a hundred points. You'd have better armor than a Predator!

Ok then 12 12 10 and make them cost 130 like a Vendetta, they would be better transports than them with less firepower, balancing out the cost. But not 11 10 10...for what? What the hell does 11 protect? It's not going to get you where you want to go, and these are suppose to be the ELITE troop transports.

It's an armored truck, not a mainline battle tank. I think 12, 11, 10, if you wanted to really give it that robust feel, but even then you would be making it tougher than a rhino, which is a little silly. How much does this thing cost?

50 points for the regular, 70(80?) for the Prime. What I am saying is why put out something, for cheap points that no one would use? 11 10 10 full of storm troopers is a going to be an immediate target and is a waste of points, it won't make it to the midline in my opinion. Good thing you can deep strike, that's the only way I'll be using the troopers.
