All vehicles need a ramming attack, kind of like hammer of wrath.....

If it made sense for any Chapter I feel like BA or maybe WS would be good, but yeah. Not happening.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

@Stormxlr; really? LR as Fast attack doesn't make sense? Pray tell then, what Heavy Support does a Land Raider bring? A Heavy Bolter and 2 Lascannons?
Well I simply cant, Land Raiders are obviously underpowered for point cost. But they dont belong with Bikers, Land Speeders and Flyers either. They are still heavy support tanks. Not main battle line tanks like Vindicators, Predators variants etc. If you want to discuss Land Raiders rules or how it would be improved im totally open to that.

Still nott sure how a Vehicle designed to move as fast as possible into enemy lines to deliver assault troops is anything other than Fast Attack.

Still, with multiple detachments now, it doesn't really make a difference overmuch.

considering the way the game has moved towards walkers and vehicles we are probably close to needing a vehicle hazard phase,
roll a d6 for each infantry squad, on a 3 + your squad spend the turn clearing leaves from the battlefield so as not interfere with passing vehicles,
roll a d6 for each vehicle squad, on a 4 + your vehicle has been impounded for speeding violations
roll a d6 for each character in your army, on a 5 + your character misses a turn due to compulsory attendance at a roadside health & safety seminar

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?

Not any more, the Baal Predator got moved to the Heavy Support slot. Also, any Rhino-chassis vehicle aside from the Rhino, Razorback, and Baal has to pay for the Fast upgrade instead of having it built in.

It's here, and it's called the Excelsior!

Looks like TL plasma guns on the command rhino, and some sort of graviton cannon on the LR.

I'd say they'll just be extra sprues in the box. I'd like a closer look at the LR commander. Might make a nice basis for a new SM character.
