Looks amazing.

Dunno about the gun.. Still in the sicaran ball park but capable of denting heavy armour.

I think it's versatility again which makes it win.

Ok it's you g to be hard to take down flare shields still but has manouverabulity to get into side armour.

No tanks to hit? Delete a terminator unit instead.

I think 2 with dozer blades and an Arcus with skyfire shells would be a good HS trio...

I'll pass. Big fan of the Arcus and Punisher - the guns look to long to me.

I use this tank to make up for other lacking areas...

I'm not sold. I'd rather take the Venator for tank hunting and save the 45 points. Even the Arcus is more appealing.

I think FW has done a great job innovating and balancing with these new units. Gives hope after some of the book 7 issues

I like how all the sicarans are unique and have advantages and disadvantages

Love the model, and a nice paintjob to boot. Not sold on the rules though, feels a little too pricey for what it offers

For what it costs, maybe str8 so it can delete 2w terminators, that would make it more reasonable, perhaps it will be modified more in an update.

Overall, a nice looking and mean tank.

I like the look and the rules seem fun, but it's another heavy support choice. I'm overwhelmed with HS choices and struggle to fit anything new in, so goes from must have now to something I may get at some point.

I still think the tank looks cool but rule wise a littel meh, I dont see it much as a "Tank Destroyer" more as a short range terminator lawn mower.

 

But yer cannons are abit big for the overall tank size I think.

If it´s not hard then you´re hardly having fun.

I agree, the gun seems to need more oomph. I argue its hard to beat the original for all round utility

I think re the main gun it's a bit deceptive. It actually has a huge threat potential which matches the fluff really well. I mean, it's almost a mini D gun Vs superheavies and it can 1 shot a typhon or Knight (it's *very* good in the flank of knights), but it keeps more versatility with the burst fire than a venator for example. Just like with the punisher, its a bit more deceptive than the arcus, which is probs a tad cheap, but which also will never last past turn 1 Vs anyone sensible. Whereas the others are more interesting threats when used correctly

I just wish that FW would figure out how to do transfers correctly.  They don't look painted on at all.

God I love the look of this tank, I've always been a fan of ridiculous oversized plasma weapons on vehicles. The rules seem a bit meh, especially compared to the Arcus, but oh well. My Alphas will be getting one of these as a counterattack unit for sure!

Massive oversized gun...terribly short range...only 6 shots at best (from the main gun). Not a fan at all. I would rethink if the range was at least 36". But its expensive and short ranged and the output isn't enough to make sure it kills everything at that short range.

 

Its just asking to get itself blown up by proper anti tank well before its in range.

The problem is that GW have always viewed a Plasma Weapon as an Anti Tank weapon which we all know it's not. I like the versatility but they have just made the Plasma Predator a little redundant now as this can't be punched to death.

The only thing I am disappointed with is the AV increase to the rear, every other Sicaran chases has the same rear AV and I bet that changes in the official rules release
