Unfortunately this is missing some options that are in the VDR

Really I can't think of anything. Though Ive rarely used VDR so I could be mistaken. So what is missing. I checked the version posted on the Spanish site and did not see anything missing. :? To O'Mont'sha: What do you mean by kickboards. The little things in "Bck To The future"or things that extend out to make access or seats for them? If either then they should all be able to shoot from it as fireing points.

There are issues with this version...examples - for Tau it says you cannot give a burst cannon a long barrel option. Untrue according to 2004 VDR rules.

Also the weapon points costs do not match up...a tau flyer with 10, 10, 10 armor with a targeted BC...should be 80 points - it has 75.

Also you can improve you speed from the fixed speeds.

Its just missing a layer.

don't know if it has been mentioned but tau forcefields are apparently free according to this program... they are not (I belive they are 35 each?)

Cheers.

I don't get GW sometimes, they simplify the 40k rules system to a very simple stream line system, and then try and trow this in which is from the "old style" way of thinking, they are SOOOO going to get a whole load of broken things out there people have made up, VDR was soooo much better.

It also says that the tank pictured was scratch built, but in a friends copy of IA (1 I think) it states that the tank is made using an incredibly old model of a future tank (some Sci-fi movie).

But yes... Being able to write up your own datasheets without needing to calculate points is rediculous IMO.

I mean, how many kids are going to make up a 14 AV all sides vehicle, with 14 structure points, 14 void shields, 4 Demolisher cannons, 2 plasmablastguns and can carry up to 10 terminators... for the fair price of 20 points.

I'll stick to VDR. Its more fair.
