Rapier Grav Tank

Postby ReconMiner » Wed Jun 14, 2017 4:25 pm

Image
Designed for flanking, this vehicle uses a combination of a lightweight frame and multiple anti-gravity thrusters to outrun and outmaneuver more heavily armed craft. Using a target computer linked to a smart glass windshield, the entire tank can be controlled and aimed by one pilot, allowing for precise targeting while on the move

Stats
Size-4
Move-14 in
Armor-2d10
Weapons- 2 twin lasers (size 1 guns)
1 heavy cannon (Size 2) (HEAT, flechette, and incendiary round available)  
Coaxial shotgun (Size 2)
Special- Target Link: When two vehicles with this ability are within 10 inchs LOS (line of sight), they are able to share targeting data (+1 for to-hit rolls for any shots made by linked vehicles)  

The design was inspired by the 40k series of Eldar grav tanks and my first SNOT build. Critique of stats/design would be appreciated

Great design! I'm loving all the tanks popping up lately.  :tiger:

Looking good! I really dig that main gun design. Looks like it could do with some explosives, but that's just me. Anyway, it seems good stats-wise, and build-wise the only issue I see is the older grey blocks in the left side. Can't wait for more!

Thanks, the slight discoloration may partly be due to lighting and that I wasn't paying too close attention to slight color differences.

I like it a lot as is, but I think some color would benefit it greatly. It feels a little... "untextured" (for a lack of a better word) in all grey.

I was planning on adding some striping to the wings. Light Grey happened to be one of the colors I just finished sorting my collection.

I was thinking it would benefit from some transparent pieces to represent the hover drives underneath

Sweet tank I like the turret a classic design but it complements the vehicle well! Also Hiremas you know we don't just give those scores arbitrarily those are for the Blarney Buildoff

There are actually 69 clear window pieces underneath. A lot nicer than messing around with tank tread wheels

I meant putting ornamental transparent elements, like br, to make it look like there were engines
