This is perhaps one of the easiest pieces to cherry
pick if you want to out of this set. I walked out of
my LGS with four of them within the first two weeks
of the release. It is actually a decent piece, but
not a great piece.
For 42 points I would like to see the HP a bit
higher. The defense is good, and the attack isnt too
shabby either. Imperials always have plenty of help
for pieces like this. It has access to +3/+3,
accurate, free twin attacks from officers, force
points from palps, ect.
Twin attack makes this a very nice run out and blast
someone type machine. DR 10 will help stretch the 80
HP a bit further, but it will still die fast against
Jedi. the mounted weapon and rigid are to be
expected, but the penetration 10 is very nice. You
won't ever have to worry about your opponnent's DR10
slowing you down.
The worst part of this piece has actually nothing to
do with its stats. Its the stupidly over sized
treads on the thing. Moving and positioning it in a
crowd is an absolute nightmare. That alone keeps me
from even trying it.
100/150pts: Treads aside you never want to run a
huge, much less a rigid in these formats. Too many
choke points for it to get caught in.
200pts: Here it can actually be a fun piece. It is a
bit fragile for the points, but if you build around
it, it can be a solid piece. Although i would highly
recommend bringing an empty huge base (say if your
dog ate your Acklay or something) to help plan
movements and use as a proxy once your board gets
