not sure, its in the Arachnid Army Book, which is out now though, i'm guessing a harder tanker, it still has the Tanker Spit IIRC, may be a bit harder

no it doesn't have the tanker spit, gets a better armour save and multihit trait

there are 3 tankers now:

Tanker Bug: Ranged attack
Thorny Tanker: Combat bug, can react to enemies
King Tanker: Big daddy Tanker, the Roleplay Book says it can use tanker spit, so thats what i was presuming the wargaming one could do

I'm getting my wires crossed, I was referring to the thorny tanker, didn't realise there was a 3rd tanker bug! :eek:

I'll be getting some mass drivers for my skinnies then....

mass drivers are all well and good, but against 3 regualr tankers and 2 throny tankers, a plasma and several Warroirs :evilgrin:

or my soon-to-be exouit platoon

no, you need an army to go to a torunament, as well as monies, still need to get loads of MI stuffs

500 points of CAP troops, rounding my others up to 2,000
3 Apes and 3 Chickenhawks to finish off my 2,000 Marauder Platoon
2,000 points of Exosuits
2,000 points of LAMI
2,000 points of Pathfinders

and to add insult to injury, the school vending machine ate my Mars Bar :mad:

Nice. I went there for an interview - it's a bugger to find, but it's a cool place

I spent several quid in phone calls to them (no one answered the phone) and to directory enquiries trying to find that place only to learn I was in a phonebox around the corner...... :mad:

Is that massive exosuit *really* going to be on that stupidly small base?

The King Tanker is basically a regular tanker with a higher Target and kill, lower save and more hits. However, it is slower, and doesn't have the multihit that the thorny tanker has.
