So I guess it means that the Riptide will become a gargantuan as well in the next codex, as it's the same body.

Jesus, why don't they just remove saves and wounds already. What's the point if every army gets to ignore them at this rate.

I like the fact it has no arms, makes it look more vehicle/machine like and less like a giant fire warrior like the crisis suits and riptides

Those poor Riptides were far too easy to kill. Not like that overpowered Skarbrand fella.

Honestly it's just an unfortunate progression of the *give armies a massive model* thing that started a few years ago. It creates an arms race - or lack there of with the Stormsurge - for each edition and new model to out do each other/be balanced. It's a trend that I'm not fond of. My hope is that it gets moved over to LoW, one of the problems with the Riptide I had was that it's available as a slot that you can take multiple - same with the Wraithknight last Eldar Codex - having the ability to spam such models to me isn't good. So hopefully this and the Riptide get moved over to LoW but I doubt it.

This thing at least is a LoW. I'm betting there will be an awesome Formation that allows you to spend more money, heck maybe it will even give them Skyfire.

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

You can take them in units of three though!

I'm hearing about major tournament making a cap of 1 GMC or superheavy LoW, so it would be interesting to see how they deal with this
