Flechete pods, could they make a return?

Post#1 » Nov 01 2017 03:50

So I recently managed to pick up a Shas'O R'ymr really cheap and was looking over the rules for him again.
They're not outstanding but the flechete pods are really interesting the D6 str4 shots at 6" is obviously meant to be an overwatch use only and would be better if it hit automatically.
But I especially like the 2 shots per attack at str4 in CC and I'm looking forward to it returning for our vehicles.
I'd also like to see it as an optional extra for Commander suits. I in no way think it's amazing and not worth losing a gun for but handy for fending off T3 flak in CC and could be handy on a devilfish if it didn't hit on 5's

Is there much evidence that our vehicles will get wargear upgrades? I haven't paid much attention to the finer points of the new Codexes, do Eldar or Guard get vehicle upgrades?

Exciting! Flechette Pods could be a great option for our vehicles then. However, seeing as all of our vehicles have fly, you'd really only get to pop it once before noping out of there.

However, if it was strong, it's be a great shotgun for our Devilfish- we're already charging into enemy mobs to use Gun Drones, why not add some flechettes into the mix?

I just picked up the Phoebix Lords edition of the Craftworlds Codex. I'll check for upgrades on the vehicles when I return home.
