So I was going looking through the Apoc book trying to get some ideas for a later game and started comparing some point costs from the IG stuff and Nids. As I was looking around I came across the Hydra Flak-Tank.
Now as an eldar player this thing is the bane of my existence. It can pretty much instance kill anything in my army, has a 72 inch range, is twin linked, and can be fielded in groups of 3. Holy Crap :P
And when I've gone against it I've thought to myself wow that is just a mean unit and how many points is that?!?
Well it turns out that in the new IG book it's all of 75 points. Now I know what I can get for 75 points in an Eldar army and it's not much. Now I'm looking through the Apoc book and boom there is the Hydra Flak-Tank, and it's 200 points.
Now that seems to be a bit more reasonable for that kind of tank, why is it they decided to drop it by over half in points costs? Who knows... but it does seem to be on the cheap side for what it is able to do in my opinion.
I could even see it around the 150 point range, but compared to what other armies get, and then just what's in the IG dex it's very cheap. I mean for 20 extra points you can take one of these instead of a chimera.
