Starting my XV7 Pathfinder support suit.

Post#1 » Jan 27 2018 03:18

I like suits more than drones. Here's a custom one for my Pathfinders.
Kakushi kikai (Hidden machine) forgoes the normal benefits of XV8 weapons, systems & flight capability to provide her pathfinders with all the benefits of a Recon, Grav-inhibitor & Pulse accelerator drone. In addition her holoprojector grants infiltrate ability to her whole team, downside 'seriously pulse carbines! What do you mean the generator can't handle all the cool stuff & weapons, earthy dude?'

Thoughts and suggestions?

I'll post my house rules in the right place when I've had a chance to play test them, but most importantly she is an integral part of the unit NOT a detached separate model.

Because of the way the rules work this model needs a Pathfinder's save & toughness; but it looks like an XV8! Everyone would expect much higher values, so how do I make it look more vulnerable?

I'm thinking I will open up the body to expose the pilot like the old Eldar walker - now that's a job and a half; wish me luck. :neutral:

I think it would need T4 (not T3) since it's representing drones, right? An exposed pilot could work, but you could also just use less armor, more exposed mechanical parts, etc.
