View Full Version : Question about the mechanical steed!!!

I know that Imperial engineers are the cream of the crap, but I still have a question concerning their mechanical steed.:eyebrows:

Why does it have T4?? The engineer can't benefit from it and neither does the steed as it only have 1W.:wtf: Can it be targeted in CC??

If it has 1 wound, you cant target it.
So t4 is irrelevant.
Unless it has a rule saying you get to use it's toughness instead of the riders?
Which is must not have if you are asking this question.

Seems to be pretty pointless then.

They probably didn't think about it when they made the Mechanical Steed.

Similar situation is Horned One Riders in the back-of-the-book Lizardmen Southlands list. Skinks riding them have T2, the Horned Ones have T4 but you can't use it, so you get T2 Fast Cav with Ld 6...

I'm going to try using them anyways but I doubt they will live against any army with any shooting at all :)

Because it's made of metal. Metal things are harder to kill than things made of flesh and bone. If it was toughness 3 people would wodner why a metal thing is as tough as a man. Not everything actually matters people. Why does it have leadership?! OMG can it panic separately from it's rider?!
