you know i never really thought to much about how the crypteks could get scary fast. think 5 crypteks, 4 with voltaic staffs, and one with Veil of Darkness, or 5 with voltaic staffs in a ghost ark.

that's 16-20 S5 ap- Haywire shots hitting on 3s

meaning about 12-15 hits, totaling about 2-3 pens 8-9 glances. not mention its can stack up some hit on infantry if you need... :skull:

point wise i think 25 total per gun is a bit cheep, even if the lance is only 35.
Any Thoughts. :D

5 scout marines worth of fighting that can punch holes in people at rapid fire range? doesnt work so well. Compare that to 5 s8 ap2 range 36 assault guys who can get good army altering war gear. they dont have a snow balls chance in hell really.

Lots of people also forget that the Voltaic Staff is AP-, so your Pens are rolling at -1 and your Glances at -3.

It's mostly going to annoy/damage vehicles, not kill them. And that's way too many points to just be an annoyance.
