This thunderhawk is cheaper than a normal thunderhawk, but chock full of defences.

I was confused why a thunderhawk with a laser upgrade was cheaper when it occurred to me that maybe it is a thunderhawk armed *only* with a laser.

thoughts?

I guess the idea is that it has a laser instead of the battle cannon but doesn't come with the bajillion heavy bolters? Has the void shield in the place of all the extra armament. But yeah... seems good. Does it being dedicated for Dorn mean only he can start in it, he can't bring a posse? Still 600+Dorn's cost means it's only really going to work in big games anyway, so who cares?

I dont know. That seems a bit... bad.

After a hard day being facepounded by Fulgrim, Dorn enjoys the spacious enterior of the Aetos Dios.

Me. Because I'm playing a lot of big games and I have a whole bunch of multiple storm raven parts and heavy bolter sponsons and a turbo laser and plasti card.

Sounds like you should probably put it together then. I'd be working off a forgeworld t-hawk base though rather than trying to make something out of straping 3 storm ravens together. I hear they are quite reasonably priced from distributors of high quality resin models.

But yeah, having it just be a really expensive rogal dorn delivery system seems pretty bad.

Standard Thunderhawk Turbolaser profile, all normal weapons (whatever is on the normal profiled) in addition to those things listed.

It is certainly cheaper than a normal Thunderhawk, but has the significant resitrction that it can only be accessed when you have bought Dorn, you are playing in a 3,000pt+ game and it is a dedicated Transport, which mean only Dorn can get in (and potentially a command squad he is attached to?).

It says it differrs from the normal profile and then lists the differences. I toom that to mean it comes as a vanilla thunderhawk that has the turbo laser upgrade.

Has anybody actually used a Thunderhawk as a LoW choice in 30k?

Interested mainly because I'm wondering what the Stormbird will be like when that comes out

Yep, the standard Thunder Hawk with al of the upgrades is actually pretty resilient and useful though still woefully expensive.

Yeah you should see what I got back for the Alpharius question, basically 'I have forwarded that on to our faq team to be considered for the next faq, in the meantime why dont you talk about it amongst your gaming group. Remember the golden rule!'

Cheers bra

Like any real humans would have a problem with you putting a squad with Dorn in his private jet.

Only total rules lawyer WAAC bros wouldn't let you.

Can't wait to see someone rock this.. I bet it's gold plated cos Dorn's a baller.

Less worries about people getting their noses out of joint, more a personal worry about pushing peoples faces in and then finding out later that I probably shouldnt have
