+1 Str for Tank Hunter was a couple editions ago. Tank Hunter now gives you rerolls on armor pen. You will be unable to even glance a Landraider type armor with MPs.Jaksie Kerra wrote:So I want to kill a land raider from as far away as possible without using broadsides or a devilfish. I want the mobility of the crisis suit. So, that being said, I am trying to glance a landraider to death using MP's and the PEN for that +1 Str on the tank hunter. I know there are better ways to do it, but I am hard headed and I want to do it this way. But is there anything I could add to it to do this more effectively?

Balistic skill | hits double | hits single+TL | hits/crisis difference | (adjusted by pts cost)
BS1 | 0.33 | 0.47 | +41% | +29%
BS2 | 0.67 | 0.89 | +33% | +21%
BS3 | 1.00 | 1.25 | +25% | +14%
BS4 | 1.33 | 1.56 | +16% | +06%
BS5 | 1.67 | 1.81 | +08% | -02%
That's ofc before you add other factors such as wounds... It's nothing game breaking, but it might be useful on deepstrinking double fusion crisis, against invisible units or some pure assault armies(are there any?) or just as listbuilding fill.

Jaksie Kerra wrote:Wow, okay. There goes that. But very helpful with all of the spreadsheets and such. Guess I will either have to invest in Broadsides, a Railhead, or a Crisis suicide team. I'm facing Blood Angels that have a very cc oriented list so range is my friend here even more so than usual. I just do not see a fusion blaster team surviving killing this thing. So between Broadsides and the Railhead. I much prefer the Broadside models to that of the Railhead, but the Hammerhead seems to be the better option.

Does he need to? A regular 2xfusion suit costs 52 points and a Land Raider something like 250. You could buy five suits who are essentially guaranteed to blow it up, and it will be an even trade. That's without considering the fact that his CC Terminators are now stranded on his side of the board, where they can't do anything useful.
