Ha. That thing is huge!

Maybe GW will reinstate the Bloodthirster stat-line from 2nd edition . . . Where basically everything was 10 out of 10. ;)

You could adapt the model so it's on it's hands and knees crawling, it'd look pretty damned stupid,
but you could

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?

I believe the dwarfs want a stern word with you. Your have to speak up though, it's hard for them to hear you over the sound of there 12 cannons.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

I just said cannon shooting isn't the same thing as normal shooting.

I know you were, I was responding to someone asking about why Fantasy doesn't have the same general teeth to it.

That said, Bloodthirsters tend to be some of the harder daemons to wound and kill. Not impossible, just more durable.

By the virtue of being FMC's, yes they are. On the other hand, since 6th and 7th Edition favour high strength low AP weapons, well...

...Oh, and glad to see we're just referred to as "someone"

Sorry for being on a completely different page than your post when replying to it and thus not immediately remembering who said it at that moment at time.
